dc.description.abstract This dissertation investigates the application of a prototyping methodology in developing a Radiological Case Filing and Retrieval system. Present prototyping approaches are dichotomized into those that attempt to replace the traditional systems development life cycle and those that complement it. Two methodologies representing this dichotomy are evaluated in order to select a suitable methodology to be used in the case study. Requirements Definition Prototyping is. followed in the case study development. A prototype information system is developed, and the development experiences evaluated. The major findings of the study are: Prototyping can be useful in illiciting a statement of user requirements and in overcoming the communication, user learning and flexibility problems. Prototyping is most effective when used in conjunction with a traditional development methodology (rather than as a replacement). Prototyping methodologies still require substantial refinement before they can be usefully integrated with current development practices. en
