Abstract

The proposed paper intends to promote the knowledge in the field of small and medium enterprises information systems using a novel methodology based on Value Analyses principles, and particular on function analysis. Customer based software engineering could be a possible solution, as it has the capacity to connect the strategic decisions made in the process of software design with the beneficiary companies’ management objectives, which are affected by these decisions. The actual tendency in the evolution of soft approaches is the methodology elaborated by Hauser and Clausing, entitled: House of Quality. This approach is focused on the determining character of the clients' demands in the projection of information systems. In this tendency, the approach based on Value Analysis is also subscribed. Value analysis is the discipline that positions the consumer’s needs in the center of the methodology. It is known as a technical and economic design method which fundamentally differs from the classic cost reduction methods through the systematic and functional approach of the projected economic objects, taking into account the beneficiaries' concrete demands. Through this paper we intend to outline a methodology which will integrate the new discoveries made in the field of software architecture with the value analysis.
