One of the most important responsibilities of a systems analyst is to identify the requirements for a project by gathering information from various stakeholders of the system. Stakeholders include the users of the system, those who are paying for the system, and those who will support the system after it is implemented. The stakeholders may have different opinions on what the system should do. For this Application, you apply what you’ve learned about requirements-gathering and fact-finding techniques to a common technology.
Consider the self-checkout system at a grocery store. What if that system did not exist yet and you were the system analyst in charge of developing it? How would you go about determining the system’s requirements?
In 2–3 pages:
· Identify the roles of people you would interview to learn more about how the system should function. Why would you choose these people?
· For the people you have identified, prepare a list of detailed questions designed to elicit at least five functional and five nonfunctional requirements. (Hint: Consider techniques such as JAD, concept map, etc.)
· Create a list of system requirements (five functional and five nonfunctional) for the self-checkout system.
· Justify your interview choices, questions, and system requirements, supporting your analysis with your readings, research, and professional experience (if applicable).
