Modern Systems Analysis and Design, 3rd edition Instructor’s Manual Guidelines for Using the Field Exercises 1. Students should be able to present a project overview, recommendation, alternatives, and system description for nearly any project they are considering. This question demonstrates that the Baseline Project Plan is robust and useful for planning nearly any project. 2. Similarly, the students should be able to discuss their projects in terms of the feasibility categories. Ask your students to share feasibility information for their projects with the class. This activity demonstrates that feasibility issues are important for all projects, whether they involve systems or not. 3. The Baseline Project Plans will vary slightly from this chapter’s Baseline Project Plan. However, each plan is likely to be comprised of the same basic elements. Students will notice that these plans are modified in various ways during the life of the projects. It is best to think of these plans as a set of flexible guidelines rather than a set of rigid operating procedures that are etched in stone. Project planning should be flexible. The point of a plan is to guide and prepare, not to constrain. 4. Most PC-based software packages have a licensing agreement that permits the purchaser to use one copy of the software on any single computer, provided the software is in use on only one computer at any time. If an organization has multiple licenses for the software, then at any time the organization may have as many copies of the software in use as they have licenses. The software is typically considered in use on a computer when it is loaded into the temporary memory (i.e., RAM) or installed into the permanent memory (e.g., hard disk, CD–ROM, or other storage device). Some software vendors allow that if the software is permanently installed on the hard disk or other storage device of a computer and one person uses that computer more than 80 percent of the time it is in use, then that person may also use the software on a portable or home computer. Some software vendors also allow the purchaser to make one back-up copy of the original software. Organizations frequently purchase site licenses that allow them to make and use multiple copies of software. Software vendors vary on the strictness of their licensing agreements. However, over the past few years, software vendors have become stricter with licensing agreements and infringements throughout business, education, and government. 5. Students are likely to find a variety of ways that information systems projects are initiated.
