Requirement Analysis: The organisation must first determine its requirements for the AIS. These should also include planned future growth in the organisation. It is vitalto obtain input from all the role players who will interact with the system, at all levels
Budget: We need to understand how much money (budget) is available for the initial investment in software, training and implementation as well as for the succeeding years’maintenance, support and licence fee costs.
Implementation period :In the same way as the organisation needs to budget for the costs, it also has to budget and plan for the time it will take to implement the AIS.
