  • Odongo Moses Uganda Once all of the elements of the new system are in place, the next step is to develop the implementation schedule (or cutover), and finally to cut over to the new system. Most systems have a staggered introduction - that is, elements of the system are introduced one at a time so that it is possible to ensure that they are working as intended before the next element is introduced. This is a common approach as it allows the developers to quickly isolate problems in individual sections of the system. If more than one element of the system is introduced at the same time and there is a problem, it may take some time to isolate where the problem is occurring. As the name suggests, parallel system implementation is where two systems (the current and the new ones) are being run at the same time to perform the same job. While this duplicates the work, there are some significant advantages to this type of system. As the performance of the existing system is a known quantity, it gives us something to compare the performance and accuracy of the new system to. Often parallel systems will operate for a month or two before the old system is decommissioned. The biggest problem with parallel systems is that the duplication of the work can be costly however this must be viewed against the security of the knowledge that if the new system under performs, the old system can be kept operating until such time as all problems with the new system are sorted out. Where the new system requires the old hardware and/or software to be removed, and it is not possible to have a cutover program or parallel systems, the only option available is the use of a trial system. This is where a small version of the system is set up and tried before the widespread introduction of the system. This trial emulates all aspects of the computer system to ensure that it will work properly. It aims to reproduce as closely as possible the "real life" situation the system will be used in. If the system is to be used in a number of locations, often this trial will occur in a single location which crosses over to the new system and evaluates its performance until it is satisfactory, at which time it is then introduced to the rest of the company. Where the ability to introduce the system in sections is not available, - for example, the new system is not compatible with the existing equipment, which will be disposed of when the new system in commissioned - a different implementation method must be used. Most commonly, it will be one that involves the use of parallel systems .

  • Stanley Amaechi Nigeria how correct is this?

  • john obux Nigeria When each element is introduced, there is a cut over which is operational under probability circumstances.

  • CONFIDENCE Ekeh Nigeria an implementation schedule assists in moving the project from development to service provision, it also helps you to determine a time line for implementation , train and educate service providers define roles and responsibilities o f team members develop written protocols for referrals develop policies and procedures comfirm performance indicators based on your logic model.

  • Caroline Omoro Kenya How accurate is the trial system when used in different departments of an organization?

  • Caroline Omoro Kenya after all the new systems are in place,what remains to be done is to develop implementation schedule and finally, cut over to the new system.elements are introduced one at a time so as to ensure they are all executed as most organizations have staggered elements.This staggered introduction is known as "cut over" as each element is introduced one after another.This method is the most preferred,there is also parallel system implementation. where the new system requires old hardware and software to be removed, cut over and parallel system cant be used ,so a trial system is introduced.

  • Veronica Brown Australia This section provides a brief description of each major task required for the implementation of the system. Add as many subsections as necessary to this section to describe all the major tasks adequately. The tasks described in this section are not site-specific, but generic or overall project tasks that are required to install hardware and software, prepare data, and verify the system. Include the following information for the description of each major task, if appropriate: • What the task will accomplish • Resources required to accomplish the task • Key person(s) responsible for the task • Criteria for successful completion of the task • Examples of major tasks are the following: • Providing overall planning and coordination for the implementation • Providing appropriate training for personnel • Ensuring that all manuals applicable to the implementation effort are available when needed • Providing all needed technical assistance • Scheduling any special computer processing required for the implementation • Performing site surveys before implementation • Ensuring that all prerequisites have been fulfilled before the implementation date • Providing personnel for the implementation team • Acquiring special hardware or software • Performing data conversion before loading data into the system • Preparing site facilities for implementation. In this section, provide a schedule of activities to be accomplished during implementation. Show the required tasks above in chronological order, with the beginning and end dates of each task.
