Most overview chapters simply summarize what has been said earlier. We take a different approach here, by using the architecture and requirements methods to model the system development process. This strategy serves two purposes: First, it provides a review of earlier material, in a form that adds new insight; second, it introduces the practical use of the methods, which will be greatly expanded ...
