In our paper we will present a part of a result of a complex research, which in we have examined five approaches of system analysis from the development aspects of rural areas. The cross-sectional system analysis approach helps us to understand the different outputs of relations and interactions between individual systems and underlines the importance of harmony between individual systems and the limits of growth regarding economic, social and environmental systems. The development system analysis approach emphasizes that an area can be defined as a system, too. The inappropriate interventions may cause distortions in the systems and the ideal tetraeder-like theoretical system will be upset. The functionalist system analysis approach tries to define the functions within the system. The definition of functions within the system is inevitable for drafting the development. In order to ensure the most efficient utilization of development sources, the functions of subsystems and their possibilities within the system should definitely be understood. The holistic system analysis approach focuses on the complexity of an area and helps to learn the system as a whole. The theory tries to consider all those elements that can be involved in the development and aims to describe these system elements in their complexity. The reductionist system analysis approach takes apart the system to its elements and aims to draft development concepts from the totality of the components. In our paper we will present the combination of the five approaches (Spider Web Entropy Analysis) through a case study.
