Steps in feasibility analysis
Eight steps involved in the feasibility analysis are:
1. Form a project team and appoint a project leader.
2. Prepare system flowcharts.
3. Enumerate potential proposed system.
4. Define and identify characteristics of proposed system.
5. Determine and evaluate performance and cost effective of each proposed system.
6. Weight system performance and cost data.
7. Select the best-proposed system.
8. Prepare and report final project directive to management.
A study of resource availability that may affect the ability to achieve an acceptable system. This evaluation determines whether the technology needed for the proposed system is available or not.
•Can the work for the project be done with current equipment existing software technology & available personal?
•Can the system be upgraded if developed?
•If new technology is needed then what can be developed? This is concerned with specifying equipment and software that will successfully satisfy the user requirement. The technical needs of the system may include:
Front-end and back-end selection An important issue for the development of a project is the selection of suitable front-end and back-end. When we decided to develop the project we went through an extensive study to determine the most suitable platform that suits the needs of the organization as well as helps in development of the project. The aspects of our study included the following factors: Front-end selection:
1. It must have a graphical user interface that assists employees that are not from IT background.
2. Scalability and extensibility.
5. According to the organization requirement and the culture.
6. Must provide excellent reporting features with good printing support.
