Software Reengineering Cost/ Benefit Assessment


Conduct a Cost-Benefit Analysis:
Cost Estimates

Costs associated with the operation of the existing system on


an annual basis:

Computer costs (licenses, data storage, maintenance)

Personnel costs (computer operating and user personnel,


training)

Supply costs (paper, forms)

Miscellaneous costs (floor space, office furniture)

Estimate the costs associated with developing the proposed solution


using the current system:

Describe the techniques that were used to derive the cost


estimates

Benefit Estimates
Identify all tangible and intangible benefits associated with the
proposed solution

Tangible benefits (new sources of revenues, increased


profits, cost avoidance(staff), reduction in maintenance
costs, marketable components)
Intangible benefits (improved service, more accurate/ timely
information, improved controls, flexibility, competitive edge,
improved employee morale)

For each tangible benefit, quantify in dollar value the expected


reductions in operating costs or increased revenues

For each intangible benefit, describe the added values


provided
