Formatted abstract This study examines the ontological model of an information system proposed by Wand and Weber (1990, 1991), together with the system analysis and design methodology proposed by Jackson (1983). The study seeks to integrate the two to determine whether the system decompositions derived using Jackson's methodology are indeed "good" decompositions. The results indicate that the system structure derived using Jackson's methodology met Wand and Weber's three criteria for a well decomposed system, even though Jackson's methodology does not actually give the analyst a formal way to decompose a system into its various subsystems.
