Well, Operational Feasibility is rather a simple part of IPT.
A Feasibility study is a basically a formal report that presents and analyses a number of potential solutions and makes a recommendation.
- Economic feasibility: determines whether the system is affordable. This involves a cost/benefit analysis to
determine both initial cost to implement the system and recurring costs to maintain the system.
- Technical feasibility: determines what hardware and software (I.T) is current being used in the existing system
and whether or not it needs upgrading and then determines what I.T current exists.
- Operational feasibility: Will the new system satisfy the participants involved?
The Operational Feasibility basically determines whether the new system will meet the current goals and will have enough support to be implemented successfully. Will participants require new training? Will users require support?
- Scheduling feasibility: determines the timeframe in which the new system must be operational. A Gantt chart
should be used here.
