What kinds of questions might McGraw-Hill have asked as part of determining the feasibility of the Primis idea? Be sure to address the needs of the organization, end users (sales reps., faculty, and students), IT specialists, and the groups involved in producing the finished custom books.
The questions that McGraw-Hill might have asked regarding the feasibility of the Primis idea would have focused on the importance and on the need of the software, in relation to the organizations overall process, IT specialist, and all the groups involved in the process. As implementing the idea would have increased the cost of their processes, therefore, it would have become increasingly important to consider the cost benefit analysis. The questions would have been:
Whether implementing the Primis idea would have increased the benefits for the organization in comparison to the current system.
Whether the quality of the product for the end user would have improved.
Whether the time to produce the products would have reduced, so that the end user would have been able to get the end product in a better quality.
Whether implementing the product would improved the overall efficiency of the IT specialist, as well as, the overall organization.
How well did the systems approach work for the initial stages of the Primis system?
The systems approach sometimes called systems analysis is an interdisciplinary field for the study of objects in their complexity (O 'Brien, 2003). In an attempt to understand the object of study in its environment, its functioning, its mechanisms, in what does not appear as the sum of its parts, for example, this approach aims to identify:
The "purpose" of the system.
Levels of organization.
The possible stable states.
Exchanges between the parties.
Factors of balance and imbalance.
Logical loops and dynamics, etc (O 'Brien, 2003).
In most cases, the principles are used without being named, even without being
