How Might Goals be Measured for Feasibility
Feasibility should be measured throughout the life cycle of a project. The scope and complexity of an apparently feasible project can change after the initial problems and opportunities are fully analyzed or after the system has been designed. A project that is feasible at one point in time may become infeasible at a later point in time (Reilly, 1996).
The goals can be measured by asking the following questions pertaining to the operational feasibility of the primary goals such as;
– Performance. Does the integrated system provide adequate throughput and response time?
– Information. Does the system provide end-users and managers with timely, pertinent, accurate, and usefully formatted information?
– Economy. Does the system offer adequate service level and capacity to reduce the costs of the business or increase the profits of the business?
– Control. Does the system offer adequate controls to protect against fraud and embezzlement and to guarantee the accuracy and security of data and information?
