- In the context of existing and other planned developments, does the scope of this project look reasonable? Should it be extended/limited?
- Does the project take reasonable share of the current resources available? Resources include staff, financial budgets, machine time, etc.
- What is the opportunity cost of the proposed development?
- Are there political or other factors that override or diminish the cost/benefit view of the justification?
- Does the project or proposed system conform to company and/or management style?
- Are the statements regarding the existing system correct?
- Do the figures for volumes and running costs agree with known data?
- Is there a single major problem concerned with the existing system, which if dealt with individually would do away with the need for a new system?
- Are the users aware of existing systems problems, or is the impetus for change purely external?
- Is the proposed system volume dependent? If so, have expected volumes been clearly stated? Are peak volumes catered for?
- Have the users been fully involved in assessing system requirements?
- Have the users signified their acceptance of the suggested requirements (by participation in lower level Q-A procedures)?
- If any special tools or techniques were used to assess requirements or measure rates and volumes, for example by simulations, were they satisfactorily constructed and carried out?
- In suggesting system requirements, are there excessive or abnormal demands on:
- computer operations staff;
- data preparation or control staff;
- user department;
