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.

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.

Data Flow Diagram

Data flow diagram (DFD) is the part of the SSADM method (Structured Systems Analysis and Design Methodology), intended for analysis and information systems projection. Data flow diagrams are intended for graphical representation of data flows in the information system and for analysis of data processing during the structural projection. Data flow diagram often used in connection with human process and can be displayed as workflow diagram. The critical Process Flow Diagram is another flowchart technique for designing data flow in connection with organizational processes. The critical Process flow diagram may use different range of symbols than a classic workflow diagram.

Program Evaluation and Review Technique (PERT) with ConceptDraw DIAGRAM

PERT Diagram is a more realistic approach of a project's time estimate analysis. After PERT chart was constructed user can discover the shortest possible duration for entire project timescale. The project timeline is the longest chain that might be taken with connected tasks on the PERT Diagram. Completion of serial tasks need to be accomplished in a presented order. At a project timeline can be independent tasks that not linked with main sequence they are called parallel tasks. PERT diagram is more suitable for Critical Path Analysis than Gantt chart for the reason that it undoubtedly better determine task dependencies. Project managers customarily utilize both methodologies.
