  • Franklin King Liberia The Planning Phase: setting project objectives broad goals for the entire project are set. In particular, it must be determined if the entire system or only part of the system needs to be replaced. Whilst this does not seem to be a significant step, it is very important to the overall project. It is through the setting of these broad system goals that the measurements of success can be determined. That is, at the completion of the planning phase, a clear picture of what the problem is has been established and equally important, a clear picture of what outcome will resolve the process has also been established. It should be noted here that we have not identified what needs to built into the computer based information system. There is a very good reason for this - at this stage it is not relevant. In the problem solving phase, the focus is on identifying the problem and what would solve it - not how the problem has arisen and how it should be solved. By maintaining this focus, the solution is linked to the problem and through this a process for solving it developed. A computer based information system should never be created for the sake of creating it - it should be created to solve the problem that was identified.

Too often, a computer based information system will be created but will not solve the problem that it was intended to. This can usually be traced back to the initial planning phase. When the outcomes to solve the problem were established, they would focus on what the system could be made to do, rather than what it actually needed to do to solve the problem. Consequently the system that was built, even though it achieved its goals, did not solve the initial problem. The quality of the initial planning will have a significant influence on the ability of the final product to solve the problem.

  • Caroline Omoro Kenya when setting project objectives it is important to know whether there should be complete or partial system overhaul.by setting goals one can realize what the problem has been and the anticipated outcome.at this stage the computer based information system is not defined as this is defined at the initial planning phase.The ability of the final product to address the problem depends on the quality of the initial planning.
