  • Veronica Brown Australia Functional requirements include the necessary hardware and software configurations along with the appropriate human resources. Specific functional requirements often include the following: User interface requirements—the input and output needs of the user that must be provided for by the new computer information system. These needs include layouts and definitions of input and output, volume, frequency, origination of input, and destination for reports. Processing requirements—the activities required for converting input into output, including calculations, decision rules, database operations, and other processing operations. In addition, requirements concerning capacity, throughput, turnaround time, response time, and the system's availability time are established. Storage requirements—the organization, content, and size of databases, and types and frequency of updates and inquiries. Furthermore, backup procedures and the length of time and rationale for retention of backups are delineated. Control requirements—the accuracy, validity, security, and adaptability requirements for the system's input, processing, output, and databases. Crash recovery and auditing requirements of the organization are further specified in this stage.

  • Franklin King Liberia There may be different possible solutions available to the project team. The designers must decide which is the most appropriate choice for the particular system undergoing change. They may use a cost/benefit analysis to assist in evaluating alternate system configurations. Key criteria include a comparison of: Cost (both at implementation and ongoing) Compatibility of components (how well the proposed system will fit in with the existing system in terms of hardware and software) User-friendliness of procedures User-friendliness of equi
