Financial Ratio Analysis: the Development of a Dedicated Management Information System

Voicu-Dan Dragomir
Academia de Studii Economice Bucuresti

Abstract. This paper disseminates the results of the development process for a financial analysis information system. The system has been subject to conceptual design using the Unified Modeling Language (UML) and has been implemented in object-oriented manner using the Visual Basic .NET 2003 programming language. The classic financial analysis literature is focused on the chain-substitution method of computing the prior-year to current-year variation of linked financial ratios. We have applied this technique on the DuPont System of analysis concerning the Return on Equity ratio, by designing several structural UML diagrams depicting the breakdown and analysis of each financial ratio involved. The resulting computer application offers a flexible approach to the analytical tools: the user is required to introduce the raw data and the system provides both table-style and charted information on the output of computation. User-friendliness is also a key feature of this particular financial analysis application.

Keywords: financial ratio analysis; object-oriented development; unified modeling language; conceptual models.
