Abstract

The selection of computer systems can be a frustrating process. The overall satisfaction derived from a system depends on matching system specifications to user needs. This care study describes a Product Evaluation and Selection System that correlates user needs to system specifications. This case illustrates the selection of project management software. A recommendation report ranks the software in descending order of their correlations to user needs. Implications for users, consultants and vendors are discussed and illustrated.
