Information Technology - Feasibility study question 4

Feasibility Study Question 4

Image, Can the system development costs and ongoing costs be justified on the improvements it will deliver?

At this point in the feasibility study, the costs associated with the
proposed system will be clearer. The costs will be divided into two
categories - establishment costs and ongoing costs. Establishment costs are
those associated with the actual creation of the system. This would include
all development costs, hardware purchases and the like. The establishment
costs are one off costs and will not be repeated during the life of the
system. Ongoing costs are the costs that will be faced each year in running
the system. It includes the human resource costs, system consumables costs
and the like. The ongoing costs must be low enough to justify the
development of the system. That is, there is no point developing a new
system to perform a job if the current system does it cheaper - unless
there is some overwhelming need for change. The establishment costs will be
incurred in the initial setting up of the system, however they will usually
be viewed over the anticipated life of that system.
