The article will discuss the use of hermeneutic methods to improve the systems analysis process. The methods of hermeneutics are aimed at doing the same thing as presently done in systems analysis, but using texts rather than procedure manuals as the source. Applying hermeneutic methods should help make clear the data context of the procedures, which should make for a better understanding of the functional relationships in the process.
