  • Cyrus Wanjohi Kenya This phase entails on testing and assessing the final product that the project had set out to achieve. Also this will examine if the project met all it's requirement and was finished within the set time and budget constraint

  • Mohamed Elmansy Saudi Arabia Amantle Nyangane Botswana The purpose of the analysis phase of the system development life cycle is to document what the current system does, and highlight the strengths and deficiencies in it. In the analysis of the system, the following should occur: • identification and evaluation of sources of information • identification and description of the types of information needed to analyse the system • identification and description of the types of information needed to design the system • information flow and needs documented using system modeling tools • identification and description of problem areas in the current system, which are grouped and become the basis for the development of the new system.

  • Amantle Nyangane Botswana Module: Feasibility Study Question 3 Topic: If the system was developed, does the company have the ability to keep it operating at an acceptable level?
    2014-10-23 14:10:01

    • Amantle Nyangane Botswana Yes because Once it has been established that the organisation has the appropriate skills to develop the system, the feasibility study must determine if the company will be able to keep the system operating at a level which will enable it to meet the original goals. In order to do this, it must first be determined what the level of operation will need to be to meet the goals, and once this is determined, it can be established what resources will be needed to allow the system to run at this level. It will then be possible to evaluate if the organisation has the appropriate resources - including human, technical and physical. It might be possible for the organisation to be able to implement the system without the need for additional resources, however it is also quite likely that the organisation will need to provide additional resources for the system to be implemented. If the organisation needs to alter the nature of the resources it has available, it should be identified in the feasibility study.

  • Amantle Nyangane Botswana Module: Feasibility Study Question 2 Topic: Can the company actually produce it?
    2014-10-23 14:10:50

    • Amantle Nyangane Botswana Yes, and this encompasses the project managers, programmers, technical experts etc. that will be needed during the project. If the expertise is not currently available, allowances need to be made in the project for this - either by outsourcing aspects of the project or employing the appropriate personnel to ensure the company has the appropriate skills available to complete the project.

  • Amantle Nyangane Botswana Module: Feasibility Study Question 1 Topic: Can the system be created?
    2014-10-23 14:10:39

    • Amantle Nyangane Botswana Yes, because when a system is being developed specifically for an organisation, there will be no existing system on which to base comparisons on. It may be that what seems like a simple idea cannot be created for whatever reason. While this step does not look in exacting detail, it will look at what the system is required to do, and if this should be able to be achieved.

  • Amantle Nyangane Botswana Module: The System Development Life Cycle Overview Topic: List and explain the phases of SDLC
    2014-10-23 14:10:21

    • Amantle Nyangane Botswana There are five phases of the SDLC. They are: • The planning phase • The analysis phase • The design phase • The implementation phase • The use/evaluation phase Phase 1: Investigation Once a project is defined, further research is needed in order to determine whether or not it is worthwhile pursuing. This phase: • Involves the initial commissioning of the project • Involves the identification of the initial aim and goals • Involves investigation into the possible ways the project could be completed • Is undertaken by top level management or strategic planners This phase would provide a project brief to the project team or project manager. Phase 2: Planning and Design This phase is important as it provides the foundation for the following phases. The aim of this step is to ensure that the objectives can and will be met within the set time and budgetary constraints. This phase involves: • Defining the exact purpose of the project and clearly defining the objectives to be achieved • Breaking the project into tasks or activities and defining the purpose of each • Estimating the shortest and longest possible time required for each activity • Identifying milestones and key time markers in the project that keep the project on schedule • Determining the sequence of activities and any constraints affecting the sequence. For example, some tasks must be completed before other ones can start, or particular resources might be required for the activity. This also includes: • Deciding which activities should be completed before others can commence • Identifying activities that can be done simultaneously or must be done at the same time • Assigning resources, people, materials and equipment to activities • Estimating the cost of resources • Drawing up a calendar of events Phase 3: Production During this phase the plan is put into operation. It ought to provide a completed project, ready to be 'handed over to' clients. Alternatively, it may end in a full implementation, i.e. at the end of an internal organisational project. This phase involves: • Providing the resources • Completing the activities • Monitoring, controlling and recording the progress of the project on the GANTT chart • Comparing the current progress to the planned schedule • Updating and refining the schedule as required • Monitoring resource use to ensure no budgetary blowout • Ensuring milestones and overall goals are met Phase 4: Evaluation and Monitoring The initial part of this phase is the transferal or hand over of the project. Of course this project may not always have a single product as the final result. Either way, the objectives of the project at this point should be met. Once the project is transferred to the client the project team is 'decommissioned', reassigned new tasks or placed into new project teams. Some members of the group may be utilised in observing the full implementation of the project or in supporting or monitoring its implementation. It is also at this point the management will assess the success of the project. This assessment is based on the elements of efficiency and effectiveness: • Quality: How well it has met the objectives? What is the final quality of the product? • Cost: Did the project stay within the budget specified and proposed use of resources? • Time: Did the project finish on or before the specified date? Was it the shortest possible time for the project? • Timeliness: Was the project completed in time for the information to be of use? • Accuracy: Are there any errors in the product? • Relevance: Does the project/product include only those elements required by the client? • Completeness: Does the client have everything they need in order to do their work and make their decisions?
