Complete Systems Design Document

27 August, 2015 - 13:02

The approved systems design document has three main components: (1) the system design (structure charts and descriptions of logical processes); (2) the implementation, testing, and training plans; and (3) the user manual. The design project leader must assemble these components and obtain the required user approvals (to ensure the adequacy of the design and plans) and management approvals (to signify concurrence with the design, training, and implementation process). In addition, IS management furnishes a supervisory/technical approval of the adequacy of the software specifications. Auditors ensure adequacy of the controls and the design process (including implementation planning).
