1. In the Lascelles case study, is the feasibility analysis included in the body of the report or the report itself should be in the form of a feasibility analysis?
This will depend to some extent on the detail in the feasibility analysis. The main report should include sufficient information from the feasibility analysis to support any recommendations and to demonstrate understanding of the question in the context of the information given. Appendices are excluded from the word count and hence from formal marking although they can be used for detail which would not fit in to the main body of the paper. Students need to ensure the main body contains sufficient information to demonstrate their level of understanding.
2. So is your recommendation that we put the most detailed feasibility report in the appendix and evaluate it in the main text? (Assuming we have a detailed feasibility report)
also for the risk identification and solution, is it only for the option of purchasing off-the-shelf packages as stated by question 2?
When answering these questions, you can consider alternative acquisition methods, but you need to use the information provided about LFFL. The answer does not need too focus on one specific acquisition method.
“The main report should include sufficient information from the feasibility analysis to support any recommendations and to demonstrate understanding of the question in the context of the information given.” You need to make sure that the main body includes sufficient information from the detailed feasibility report to support your evaluation.
3. About the feasibility study, are we required to carry out a feasibility report for each acquiring method, or for the one we recommended in question 1 alone. Also, when you said the paragraph relates to questions 1 and 2, what do you mean? Are we supposed to incorporate it into our answers for questions 1 and 2? Or are we to have it as a separate report?
The question says “produce a feasibility analysis of the alternative methods…”. This can be done either by looking at the (main) feasibility criteria for each acquisition method (the normal approach) or by looking at the acquisition methods for each feasibility criterion. The decision on the acquisition method would not normally be taken until the feasibility analysis is done, thus the feasibility analysis would not be restricted to any particular acquisition method.
Would the answer to question 1 be informed by the feasibility analysis? The same for question 2?
Note: This is not saying that the feasibility analysis provides all the information needed to answer questions 1 or 2, just that it may provide some information. (see the definition of ‘relate’)
