JSD - Jackson system development

Jackson System Development (JSD) is a linear method of system development created by Michael A. Jackson and John Cameron in the 1980s. It comprises the whole software life cycle directly or providing a framework for more specialized techniques.
When implementing the Jackson System Development method and designing JSD diagrams, you can succesfully use the powerful and helpful tools of ConceptDraw DIAGRAM software extended with Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD) solution from the Software Development area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.

Pyramid Diagram

A three level pyramid model of different types of Information Systems based on the type of decisions taken at different levels in the organization.

Diagramming Software for Design UML Use Case Diagrams

Use Case Diagrams describes the functionality provided by a system in terms of actors, their goals represented as use cases, and any dependencies among those use cases.

Diagramming Software for Design UML Object Diagrams

UML Object Diagram shows the structure of a modeled system at a specific time.
ConceptDraw Rapid UML solution delivers libraries contain pre-designed objects fit UML notation, and ready to draw professional UML Object Diagram.

Pyramid Diagram

SSADM Diagram

The vector stencils library SSADM from the solution Systems engineering contains specific symbols of SSADM diagrams for ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and vector drawing software. The Systems engineering solution is contained in Software Development area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.
The example below illustrates the waterfall model used in SSADM. This model involves 5 stages of developing a product such as requirements specification and its' analysis, design, coding and testing.

This object-role modeling (ORM) diagram sample shows model of employee data: birthdate, hiredate, rank, company car number. It was designed on the base of the Wikimedia Commons file: ORM-diagram-tkz-orm.png. [ wiki/ File:ORM-diagram-tkz-orm.png]
Object-role models are based on elementary facts, and expressed in diagrams that can be verbalised into natural language. ...
This "fact-based" approach facilitates modeling, transforming, and querying information from any domain. ...
ORM is attribute-free: unlike models in the entity–relationship (ER) and Unified Modeling Language (UML) methods, ORM treats all elementary facts as relationships and so treats decisions for grouping facts into structures (e.g. attribute-based entity types, classes, relation schemes, XML schemas) as implementation concerns irrelevant to semantics. By avoiding attributes in the base model, ORM improves semantic stability and enables verbalization into natural language. ...
Fact-based modeling.
Fact-based modeling includes procedures for mapping facts to attribute-based structures, such as those of ER or UML. ...
Fact-based graphical notations are more expressive than those of ER and UML. ...
Design procedure.
System development typically involves several stages such as: feasibility study; requirements analysis; conceptual design of data and operations; logical design; external design; prototyping; internal design and implementation; testing and validation; and maintenance." [Object-role modeling. Wikipedia]
The object-role modeling diagram example "Employee ORM diagram" was designed using ConceptDraw PRO software extended with ORM Diagrams solution from Software Development area of ConceptDraw PRO Solution Park.

Structured Systems Analysis and Design Method. SSADM with ConceptDraw DIAGRAM

Structured Systems Analysis and Design Method (SSADM) was developed in the UK in the early 1980s and accepted in 1993 in order to analyze and project the information systems. Use the data flow diagrams (DFD) for describing the informational, functional and event-trigger models, the Logical Data Structure (LDS) diagrams for describing which data the system operates with and Entity Life History (ELH) diagrams for modelling events that happened in the system and find it simple to make any of these or other diagrams with help of our software. Starting now, you’ll definitely make a better chart tomorrow, so why not to do it now, at this very moment? Once you get used to ConceptDraw DIAGRAM , you’ll find our product to be the most smart version of any existing applications and you’ll recommend it to all those who you care for to simplify their work and their lives.
