In fact, it's the first standardized methodology of its kind. In this book, expert Bernard Boar introduces you to the principles behind EAB and all of its features by walking through the entire design process for developing conceptual, functional, logical, and physical blueprints complete with useful icons, diagrams, and page templates. This valuable guide also defines:

* An accessible vocabulary, rational rules, and clear-cut graphics standards
* How to create a set of functional specifications and how they interrelate with diagrams
* How to integrate multiple drawings
* How to package the finished blueprint
* How to design infrastructure and application architectures for extreme maneuverability and maximum flexibility
* How to implement blueprinting within your environment and overcome potential obstacles
