Assignment Week 8 When a corporation decides to implement a new system there are many different factors  that need to be considered such as time, quality, cost, and the risk involved. While these factors  play a major role in the daily operations of a company, upper management as well as the IT  division of a company must go through a multi-step process to ensure that the system will  benefit the corporation rather than be harmful in the long run.  To establish a successful system,  a corporation must plan ahead and have a strategic plan of action in order to implement a  successful system. There are five different variables that have to be considered when any type of new  system is implemented to better enhance the daily operations of a corporation.  The first factor  is scope, this factor is best described as the type of work that may or may not be included in  implementing the new system. Since the current hardware is out of date and cannot support the  new system, the IT department must evaluate the tasks of the system to determine what aspect  of the daily operations will be affected by the new system.  A perfect example of how the scope  factor operates is if the company is a shipping and distribution facility, inventory control and  shipping division will be including in the operation of the new system while finance department  would not be affected as it would possibly be utilizing a different system. The second factor is  the cost of all the necessary components that would be required to make the new system fully
