Plz help me with these question.


The North Indian Motor Company has decided to computerise its system of keeping staff records. It currently has personal and payroll details of all its staff.

On the new system human resources staff will need to be able to access records quickly. The payroll system will run using all the data on a weekly basis. The master payroll file is sorted in worker number order.

Jasbir, a systems analyst, has collected a large amount of information about the existing system. The information will be analysed before the system is designed.


Describe the different items that Jasbir will need to include at the design stage.
Using examples, explain a factor that will influence the choice for each item.

I know the factors, can you please state the examples for each of the factor?


additional info:

in the mark scheme the factor alongside the 'example' is given.

One mark for each item and one mark for each example of factors
