I want to say "A better way to analyse the .. is to understand its underlying structure". What are the alternatives to saying a better way?

    Change "analyse" to analysis: "An improved analysis of ... comes from understanding of its underlying structure". Or maybe "An improved method to analyse..." Then check a thesaurus for synonyms of improved/better (and "way").

    Or perhaps, "Greater understanding of ... will come from thorough/detailed/further/deeper analysis of its underlying structure."

It is common to use the word "elegant" for such a descriptor in academia.

"An elegant way to analyse the (or "An elegant analysis of") .. is to understand its underlying structure".
