3. FEASIBILITY STUDY
Feasibility is the measure of how beneficial or practical the development of an
information system will be to an organization. The process by which the feasibility of a
system is measured is called feasibility analysis.

TESTS FOR FEASIBILITY


We will be conducting three different types of feasibility tests:

Operational feasibility is a measure of how well the solution will work on the
organization. It is also a measure of how people feel about the system/project.

Technical feasibility is a measure of the practicality of a specific technical solution


and the availability of technical resources and expertise.

Economic feasibility is a measure of the cost-effectiveness of the project or


solution. This is often called a cost- benefit analysis.

 OPERATIONAL FEASIBILITY
Operational feasibility criteria measure the urgency of the problem (survey and study
phases) or the acceptability of the solution. There are two aspects of operational
feasibility to be considered:
Will the solution to the problem work?
How do the customer and organization feel about the solution?

WILL THE SOLUTION TO THE PROBLEM WORK


PIECES framework can be used as a basis for analyzing the urgency of the problem
or the effectiveness of a solution. The following is a list of questions that addressed
these issues:
 P - Performance. Does the system provide adequate throughput and response
time?
 I - Information. Does the system provide end-users and managers with timely,
pertinent, accurate and usefully formatted information.

 E - Economy. Does the system offer adequate service level and capacity to reduce
the costs of the business or increase the profits of the business?

 C - Control. Does the system offer adequate controls to protect against fraud and
embezzlement and to guarantee the accuracy and security of data and
information?

 E - Efficiency. Does the system make maximum use of available resources


including people, time, flow of forms, minimum processing details and the like?

 S - Services. Does the system provide desirable and reliable service to those who
need it? Is the system flexible and expandable?

HOW DO THE END-USERS/CUSTOMERS FEEL ABOUT THE SOLUTION?


It’s important not only to evaluate whether a system can work but we must also
evaluate whether a system will work. A workable solution might fail because of end-
user and management resistance. Proper Help desk Support necessary

 TECHNICAL FEASIBILITY
Technical feasibility can be evaluated only after those phases during which technical
issues are resolved- namely after the evaluation and design phase of our life cycle
have been completed. Today very little is technically impossible. Consequently
technical feasibility looks at what is practical and reasonable. Technical feasibility
addresses three major issues:

Isthe proposed technology or solution practical?


Do we currently possess the necessary technology?
Do we possess the necessary technical expertise, and is the schedule reasonable?

IS THE PROPOSED TECHNOLOGY OR SOLUTION PRACTICAL?


The technology is very practical for the current system. Organization is using .Net
software application support with SQL Database Management Software. Plus
Microsoft Site Server.
DO WE CURRENTLY POSSESS THE NECESSARY TECHNOLOGY?
The organization will buy all the necessary technology for example the Pc’s, Routers,
Blade Servers, WAN devices, SAN etc

DO WE POSSESS THE NECESSARY TECHNICAL EXPERTISE?


We may have the technology but that does not mean that we have the required
expertise and skills to implement the technology effectively. We will hire

6. PAYBACK PERIOD

Payback analysis is a simple and popular method for determining if and when an
investment will pay for itself. Payback period is the period of time that will lapse before
accrued benefits overtake accrued and continuing costs. As it is said..the dollar today
is not equal to the dollar tomorrow .

PVn = 1/(1 + k)n

Where ‘n’ is the number of years and ‘k’ is the discount rate.

a good employee management relationship. Working on the internal and external
environment needs heavy amount of work to be performed in this sector.

8. IMPACT ON THE BUSINESS

Impact of business is entirely depend on its internal and external factors. It is the aim
of the organization to cover all their weaknesses with strength and take available
opportunities and remove threats. Once the project completed it the entirely the
Strategist to work on the factor will help improvising necessary terminologies /
technologies in order to be effective.

The following points illustrate the data we used to collect information in the system
analysis phase.

Learn all we can from existing documents, forms, reports and databases.
If appropriate we will observe the system in action. We agree not to ask questions
but just take notes and draw pictures. We must make sure that the workers know we
are not evaluating individuals. Otherwise they may tend to work more efficiently than
they usually do.

Given all the facts we have already collected. We will design and distribute
questionnaires to clear things up we don’t fully understand. This is also a good time to
solicit opinions on problems and limitations. We understand that questionnaires do
take much of the end-user time but they must know when its best to make that
sacrifice.

Conduct our interviews to verify and clarify the most important and difficult issues
and problems.

Follow up. We will use appropriate fact-finding techniques to verify facts, usually
through interviews and observation.
