    Uba Oguchi Christian Nigeria Some factors have to be considered when designing the output requirements. such items are printer, screen, plotter, audio, email, links to web pages, automated fax facilities and computer output microfilm. this also have to be considered way and manner in which output is to be created and/or displayed is actually of great significance to the design of a computer system.

    Jahidul Islam Bangladesh 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. 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.

    Kolawole Ajibola Nigeria As discussed earlier, inputs and outputs are an important part of any system, so while designing a system inputs and outputs of the system as a whole need to be identified and the inputs and outputs for the various processes of the system need to be listed down. During design of input, the analyst should decide on the following details: What data to input What medium to use How data should be arranged How data should be coded i.e. data representation conventions The dialogue to guide users in providing input i.e. informative messages that should be provided when the user is entering data. Like saying, "It is required. Don't leave it blank." Data items and transactions needing validation to detect errors Methods for performing input validation and steps to follow when errors occur The design decisions for handling input specify how data are accepted for computer processing. The design of inputs also includes specifying the means by which end-users and system operators direct the system in performing actions. Output refers to the results and information that are generated by the system. In many cases, output is the main reason for developing the system and the basis on which the usefulness of the system is evaluated. Most end-users will not actually operate the information system or enter data through workstations, but they will use the output from the system. While designing the output of system, the following factors should be considered: Determine what information to present Decide on the mode of output, i.e. whether to display, print, or "speak" the information and select the output medium Arrange the presentation of information in an acceptable format Decide how to distribute the output to intended recipients These activities require specific decisions, such as whether to use per-printed forms when preparing reports and documents, how many lines to plan on a printed page, or whether to use graphics and color. The output design is specified on layout forms, sheets that describe the location characteristics (such as length and type), and format of the column heading, etc.

    Odongo Moses Uganda The Design Phase: factors to be considered when designing the output requirements. In 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. 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. 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.
