  • Ernest Ebie Nigeria 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.

  • 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.

  • Bonolo Tlale Botswana Often parallel systems will operate for a month or two before the old system is decommissioned.

  • Franklin King Liberia 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.

  • Larry Covington United States of America staggered system - elements introduced one at a time until it is sure they are working, parallel system uses old and new system together causing duplication, sooner or later old system must be decommissioned.

  • Stephen Diya Nigeria 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 staggered introduction is commonly referred to as a "cutover". This is because the two systems cut over one another as each element is introduced. This is by far the most preferred method of introducing a new computer system however there are times when it is not possible to do this. 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

  • chris kollie Other The various means of the implementation phase are the "cutover", the parallel, and trial method. The "cutover" method ensures that elements of the new system are introduced one at a time while the parallel method allow the old and the new system to run side by side. Because the parallel method is usually cost inefficient, the trail method becomes a better option.

  • Samuel Kofi Odoi Ghana During the development phase, everything that will be needed to implement the project is arranged. Potential suppliers or subcontractors are brought in, a schedule is made, materials and tools are ordered, instructions are given to the personnel and so forth. The development phase is complete when implementation is ready to start. All matters must be clear for the parties that will carry out the implementation. In some projects, particularly smaller ones, a formal development phase is probably not necessary. The important point is that it must be clear what must be done in the implementation phase, by whom and when. The project takes shape during the implementation phase. This phase involves the construction of the actual project result. Programmers are occupied with encoding, designers are involved in developing graphic material, contractors are building, the actual reorganization takes place. It is during this phase that the project becomes visible to outsiders, to whom it may appear that the project has just begun. The implementation phase is the doing phase, and it is important to maintain the momentum. In one project, it had escaped the project teams. attention that one of the most important team members was expecting to become a father at any moment and would thereafter be completely unavailable for about a month. When the time came, an external specialist was brought in to take over his work, in order to keep the team from grinding to a halt. Although the team was able to proceed, the external expertise put a considerable dent in the budget.

  • Nothando Gumpo United Kingdom However the staggered introduction is commonly referred to as a "cutover". This is because the two systems cut over one another as each element is introduced. This is by far the most preferred method of introducing a new computer system however there are times when it is not possible to do this. 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. 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.
