Determining System Requirements
Description One of the potential problems mentioned in the chapter with gathering information requirements by observing potential system users is that people may change their behavior when observed. What could you do to overcome this potential confounding factor in accurately determining information requirements? All of the methods of data collection discussed in this chapter take a lot of time. What are some ways analysts can still collect the information they need for systems analysis but also save time? What methods can you think of that would improve upon both traditional and newer techniques? Evaluation Criteria Was the assignment properly formatted with proper spelling and grammar? Did the student demonstrate an understanding of the different techniques for gathering user requirements and their advantages/disadvantages? Did the student demonstrate critical thinking? The answer should be at least 3-4 paragraphs, double spaced.
