A depthless analysis was carried out that covered only some of the necessary elements.
There was an attempt to list the requirements for the future system. There was no attempt or weak attempt to discuss alternative solutions of the problem.

Lists the requirements for a future system is present with a good discussion of alternative ways to solve the problem.
The report contains a full description of the current system with a detailed description of the involved third parties (client or potential user). There is excellent involvement of the third party in collecting data for the current system analysis.
The report contains in-depth analysis, which includes all the necessary elements, based on the collected data.
A detailed list of requirements for the future system is discussed and made. A thorough discussion of alternative solutions to the problem is presented.

Definition, investigation and analysis
Description of the organization

(Give a complete description of the organization. What kind of organization? When was it founded? What does he do?)

Description of the current system

(Describe how the current system functions, what processes are performed in it)

Description of the client activity

(Describe your client's position in this organization. Describe in detail the client's activities, what operations he performs in the current system, in what processes he participates, what data he operates)

Origin of the data

(Give a description of the data used in the current system. Explain where they come from and how they are collected. Be sure to provide evidence in the form of a photo or screenshot in what form the data is stored in the current system) 

Description of the problem

(based on the above, give a detailed description of the problem areas in the current system)


(Describe what you are going to research and which of the methods / observation / interview / questionnaire / examination of existing paperwork / you choose to study the current system. Which of them do you find more suitable for your project and why?)

(Use interviews to clarify the details of the current system. 

Follow the sequence of the questions. From general to detailed. First, questions about the client's activities in the current system. Clarify questions about the data used in the system, what are their limits (maximum and minimum).

After questions about the current system, offer the client alternative approaches to project development with a detailed description of their capabilities (advantages and disadvantages).

For example,

Excel allows you to organize ..., the main advantages are ..., of the disadvantages I can mention ....

At least three alternative approaches. 

Next, discuss what functions the new system will (should) contain.


(Summarise what you found out from your questionnaire, interview, observations and  analysis of current forms.)

Design how the current system works:

(Complete the table below to show how data is processed in your organization’s current system.)

Input Process Output
Customer inputs quantity required (Quantity * Price )+ tax Receipt with total price

(DFD: Describe briefly what you represent and why. A data flow diagram can be represented at the context level.)

(Flowcharts: Graphically represent the processes that are used in the current system, demonstrate an understanding of the processes that you found out about during the research. Each flowchart should demonstrate how process is working in the current system. The flowcharts should be quality. Use connecting arrows. Use labels  “Yes” / “No” for the condition. Use Google Lucidchart App or Power Point to build flowcharts.)

(Describe in detail the advantages of the current system)

(Describe in detail the disadvantages of the current system)

(Conclusion based on the analysis)

(Develop a numbered list requirements for the new system)

(Attach evidence of business letter in which the client says they agree with the requirements for the new system)
