  This enough was more than sufficient to make your post worth reading.
  Thanks for your wisdom!

  I also use (part of) this process.
  I start using paper and pen, and after a usually huge ammount of paper
I come up with something to build in SQL statements.

  Problems arraise when the system is too big or too complex to get
totally shown in a single sheet of paper. But this is much more a
tactical problem than a practical problem.
