The Role Of Cognitive Style In The Comprehension Of Systems Analysis Tools

Comprehending information presented in the systems analysis and design (SAD) tools by users is very important for successful information systems development. The comprehension performance is best when there is a fit among the cognitive style of the individual performing the task, the information-representation format being used, the complexity level of the task, and the task size. Previous research in this area has produced conflicting results due to consideration of only a few of the factors. This comprehensive study fills the previous research gap using systematic, speculative, judicial, and heuristic cognitive styles and SAD tools of Decision Tables and Structured English. Keywords- Cognitive Style, Software Development, Task Complexity, Decision Tables
