Flashcards in Project Management Deck (21):
What are the skills necessary to manage a system development project?
What are the advantages of a group acting as a team?
Enhanced job satisfaction
The development of a quality system
What's included in a requirements report?
The purpose of the systems
An analysis of an existing system
Definition of extra requirements
What is involved in a feasibility study?
The benefits, costs and risks of a project.
What kind of standards does a feasibility study test a proposed solution?
What are the appropriate development approaches?
What does a Requirement Report detail?
Details the time frame
Details the sub-projects and the time frame for them
Identifies relevant information technology
Identifies the needs of others
What approaches can you use to identify certain problems within an existing information system?
Interviewing/surveying users of the information system
Analysing the existing system by determining: how it works, what it does and who uses it.
What is a requirements prototype?
A working model of an information system, built in order to understand the requirements of the system.
When is a requirements prototype meant to be used?
When the problem is not easily understood
How is a requirements prototype used?
Repetitive process of prototype modification and participants' feedback until the problem is understood.
What can a requirements prototype also be used for?
The basis for further system development
What are system design tools used for?
Better understanding of the system
Assistance in explaining the operation of the new system
Documenting the new system
What are the tools used in designing?
Data flow diagrams
What is the Designing process meant for?
It's meant to clarity the benefits of the new information system to users.
Detailing the roles of the participants, the data and the information technology used in the system.
Designing the system for ease of maintenance and to refine existing prototypes.
What is the purpose of Implementing, in a Management Project?
Acquiring information technology (hardware, software) and making it operational in a new information system.
To instruct participants on procedures to follow when using the new system.
What are the methods for conversion?
What are the kinds of test data that is associated with testing and evaluating?
What is the purpose of testing, evaluating and maintaining in a Management Project?
Checking to see that the original system requirements have been achieved.
Reviewing the effect on users of the information system, participants and people within the environment.
Modifying parts of the system where problems are identified.
What is the purpose of Understanding the Problem in a Management Problem?
Locating the present errors in the existing information system.
