Discussion: System Implementation and Maintenance Considerations
Consider the Millennium Health project that you have been working on throughout the course and provide answers to the following prompts based the Business Support System (BSS):
- Which installation strategy would you recommend? Support your answer with an explanation.
- List three or four testing criteria that you would use to test the BSS system to ensure it is ready for production use. Make sure that your testing criteria is adequately descriptive. If not, provide an explanation for it.
- Consider the four types of maintenance discussed in Chapter 14 ( 1. Obtaining maintenance requests 2. Transforming requests into changes 3. Designing changes 4. Implementing changes ) of the textbook. Which type do you think is most likely to be needed for the BSS system? Support your answer with an explanation.
- Corrective maintenance is by far the most frequent form of maintenance. What can you do as a systems analyst to reduce this form of maintenance?
