  Systems Analysis Definition
      (SAD) The analysis of the role of a proposed
     system and the identification of the requirements that it
     should meet.  SAD is the starting point for system design.
     The term is most commonly used in the context of commercial
     programming, where software developers are often classed as
     either systems analysts or programmers.  The systems
     analysts are responsible for identifying requirements
     (i.e. systems analysis) and producing a design.  The
     programmers are then responsible for implementing it.
