The following four strategies are used to determine AIS requirements: 1. Ask users what they need. This is the simplest and fastest strategy, but many people do not understand their needs. They know their job but may be unable to break it down into the individual information elements they use. It is sometimes better to ask what decisions they make and what processes they are involved in and then design systems to address their answers. Users must think beyond current information needs so that new systems do not simply replicate current information in improved formats. 2. Analyze external systems. If a solution already exists, do not "reinvent the wheel." 3. Examine existing systems. Determine if existing modules are used as intended, may be augmented by manual tasks, or may be avoided altogether. This approach helps determine whether a system can be modified or must be replaced. 4. Create a prototype. When it is difficult to identify requirements, a developer can quickly rough out a system for users to critique. Users identify what they like and dislike about the system and request changes. This iterative process of looking at what is developed and improving it continues until users agree on their needs.
