Feasibility Analysis
Technical Feasibility: Can We Build It?
Familiarity with Application
• This project is similar to five other projects the SAD (Systems Analysis and Design, Inc.)
development team has completed for small commercial businesses. SAD has successfully used
RAD to provide basic functionality for end-users, then incorporated additional features during
each iteration of the development process.
Familiarity with Technology
• The application will be built in Microsoft Access, which SAD analysts/programmers have
extensive experience with.
• The employees at VW have virtually no experience using MS Access or an automated rental
processing system but all are comfortable with using PCs. Training should be sufficient to
overcome their inexperience.
Project Size
• Project size is relatively small. There is only one VW store at this time. Future expansion is
planned but will not affect this project, though business expansion may lead to subsequent
