  • Thomas Ndungo Lekunze Cameroon This is a very practical mechanism because it facilitates a holistic view of what the final product will look like by identifying the different constrains that may be encountered during the poduction of the respective components of the system.

  • ESSOTOLOME BODJO China There are sound reasons for starting the system development with the design of the output. The system will be implemented to help improve efficiencies or to solve a problem. In order to do this, the first step will be to determine what can be done to help the situation. Once this has been done, a clear picture of what has to be produced can be identified. This will shape the output requirements of the system. While the output may seem to be the last part of the system that should be developed, it should not be. In order to make the system a success it must be able to produce the outcomes that can solve the problem, therefore the output required needs to be identified early in the process.

  • Caroline Omoro Kenya when considering factors when designing output requirements, it is important to consider the following key issues -in a top down system of design, the programmer should star t by identifying the output the system should produce ie. the output format needed for this process -after identification of this output, constraints should be put in place in the system in order to improve efficiencies and solve problems. -the aim of starting system development with output is also to reduce the limitations of technologies used. -some major limitations of output are printers and screen.

  • Cyrus Wanjohi Kenya n a top down approach to system design, the programmer will start by identifying the output that the system will need to produce. There are a number of possible output formats that must be considered, including such items as: printer, screen, plotter, audio, email, links to web pages, automated fax facilities and computer output microfilm. There are many more possible output devices that could be incorporated into any system - it will depend on the technology that is available to the developers.

In order to make the system a success it must be able to produce the outcomes that can solve the problem, therefore the output required needs to be identified early in the process. Once the output has been identified, it will place constraints on the system. These constraints will include requirements of data to be collected to produce the output, and to the limitations imposed by the technologies used to create the output. While it may sound minor, the manner in which output is to be created and/or displayed is actually of great significance to the design of a computer system. This is because it can quickly change the nature of the resources that are required by the system to produce the output. For example, if the system is to collect pictures that are displayed over the web, then the file size will not have to be as large as those that will be printed. Some of the major constraints on output include: Printers - the print quality, e.g. Laser/inkjet/colour, and the nature of the information to be produced. For example, if a receipt is to be printed and needs to be made in duplicate, then an impact printer will need to be used or the item printed twice. Screen - If the output is primarily to be screen based, then the screen will impose a number of limitations on the output. The output will need to be designed to fit into the screen size. If the screen is monochrome, then colour cannot be used, etc.

  • Assel Satpayeva Kazakhstan The design process is a methodical series of steps that engineers use in creating functional products and processes. The steps tend to get articulated, subdivided, and/or illustrated in a variety of different ways, but regardless, they generally reflect certain core principles regarding the underlying concepts and their respective sequence and interrelationship. Also, the process is highly iterative - i.e. parts of the process often need to be repeated many times before production of a product can begin - though the part(s) that get iterated and the number of such cycles in any given project can be highly variable.
