The Implementation Phase: preparing the physical facilities
The next part of the implementation process is preparing the physical
facilities. How important or large a step this is will depend upon the
system in question. It may be as simple as clearing a desktop to
accommodate a PC to removing doors to allow the entry of large equipment.
In some specialist cases, it may even involve changes to such things as the
air conditioning and/or filtering equipment, security access etc. Each
system will need to be analysed to identify where changes to the physical
environment will be required and how those changes will be implemented. It
is also important to identify the importance of the physical changes to the
system, and thus the order in which they need to be completed. For example,
if computer hardware to be used in the system can only operate at ten to
twenty degrees, and there is no air conditioning, obviously the air
conditioning must be installed before the new hardware.
