  • List and describe the advantages and disadvantages of building a system from the ground up.
  • If given a choice between a packaged solution and building one, which would you choose, and why?


  • After the system has been completely installed, a team member states that the systems analysts will now be in charge only of “putting out fires” experienced within the new system. How would you react to this statement?
  • Elaborate on what can be done to proactively prevent system problems, rather than just reacting to them after they happen.
