An Analysis and Design Methodology for Document Imaging Systems
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis proposes that Document Imaging Systems (DISs) provide unique challenges to the system developer. Unlike most information management systems, DISs present features that are not well supported through traditional analysis and design methodologies. A review of several well-known methodologies identifies strengths and weaknesses. DIS features that require special support during system development are presented and an analysis and design methodology is proposed to provide the flexible, yet controlled, environment that is needed.<P>A case study is used to present the application of the proposed methodology in three areas of specific interest for a new IDS. The importance of early consideration of the unique and complex features of a DIS is emphasized.
