1. SLC - Feasibility study

Specification point:

c. describe the function and purpose of a feasibility study

Once the system analyst is convinced that the problem could be solved with a new IT system they have to determine whether it is feasible to actually go ahead and develop the system. This is the purpose of a 'feasibility study'.

Some of the questions that will need to be answered in a feasibility study are:

Cost How much would the new system cost to develop?
Budget Would there be enough money available in the budget to develop the system?
Time How long would it take to make the system from start to finish?
Skills Does the company have the skills in-house or would it need to go to a specialist software development firm?
Hardware to develop Does the company have the necessary hardware to develop the system?
Hardware to run Would new hardware be needed to run the system and if so how much would that cost?
Software Does the company have the necessary software to develop the system?
Training What would the training implications be once the system had been developed?
Technical feasibility After finding out what is required is it technically possible to create the system
