IPT: Planning & Designing Solutions

Terms:
 
Feasibility studies - Assesses the suitability of a solution from the user's point of view.
Functional specifications - Explains the effect of the project on the business and users, its benefits and costs, and the risks.
Project plans - Details the steps, resources and schedule for the development of a new system.
 
Questions:

1. The purpose of the feasibility study is to investigate the practicality of a proposed solution.
2. A functional specification explains the effect of the project on the business and users, its benefits and costs, and the risks.
3. The project plan is prepared to break the project into smaller and mroe manageable stages by detailing the steps, resources and schedule for the development of the system.
4. When there are multiple suitable choices for a proposed solution a choice must be made. To help decide, a functional specification is prepared.
5. It will probably be most likely done to remove any bias (for example, if the person evaluating the system wants to do that particular project then the evaluation will probably be biased).
6. It is much more clearer when the schedule is displayed graphically, and time required for each task can be seen much more easily at first sight than on a text-based schedule.
