Customer Question

I wrote a paper on preparing a Feasibility Study about being business analyst developing a new information system to automate the sales transactions and manage inventory for each retail store in a large chain. The system will be installed at each store and exchange data with a main server in the head office. I need help with calculating a cost benefit analysis (CBA) for the inventory Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) acquisition I investigated in my paper (I will attach the paper). The CBA only has to be 1-2 pages. I need to include major cost categories associated COTS purchase price, personnel, equipment, supplies, 5-year maintenance, training, and consultant fees. I have to be detailed in each category to show where the money is being spent and what the benefits will be for the proposed system. Follow the CBA example and include a short written explanation of your analysis. Please provide original answer.

Sorry I made this a little confusing. Basically, suppose you were a business analyst developing a new information system to automate the sales transactions and manage inventory for each retail store in a large chain. The system will be installed at each store and exchange data with a main server in the head office. What option would you recommend?

I need to include major cost categories associated COTS purchase price, personnel, equipment, supplies, 5-year maintenance, training, and consultant fees. I have to be detailed in each category to show where the money is being spent and what the benefits will be for the proposed system.
