Information Technology - The Design Phase: the processing requirements
The Design Phase: factors to be considered when designing the processing
The processing requirements of the system are simply the steps the program
will need to perform to organise the data collected into the form the final
output requires. The programmer needs to identify what manipulation will
need to take place, and where in the program it will need to occur.
Furthermore, the programmer will need to identify where the steps need to
be repeated to reduce the amount of code needed. For example, if the
solution involves a database, the programmer will have to know which fields
are to be linked and in which tables data is to be stored.
