1. Individual Sections Development Exercise # 4
INFORMATION RESEARCHER - Satoru Yoshida
A. Why is a feasibility report so important in technical communication?
Write in your own words; 75 words minimum.
First of all, I think that I explain feasibility report.
Feasibility report is a report to discuss the practicality, and possibly the suitability and
compatibility of a given project, both in physical and economic terms. Why is a feasibility
report so important in technical communication? I think that this answer is in the above
sentence.I think that this answer is that feasibility report is very useful because if we use
feasibility report, we can get a lot of available information.
B. Write 5 major points in the articles that are important. Write in your own words; 100
I think that 5 major points are discuss, choice, logical, format, purpose.
Why I think that discuss is major point because if we do not discuss, we
make a report that is disjointed.
Why I think that choice is major point because if we do not choose better information of
report, our report is written a lot of unnecessary information and
another people think that this report is difficult to read.
Why I think that logical is major point because if we write the report very
hard, I did not think that it is good for viewer not to write logically.
Why I think that format is major point because if we do not write report
formally, I think that we write absurd report.
Why I think that purpose is major point because if we do not have purpose,
we can not make report.
C. Explain 5 reasons why one should read the above articles when preparing
to design an important feasibility study on any topic? Write in your own
words; 75 words minimum.
First, I think that if we do feasibility study, we can know benefit of our project.
Second, I think that if we do feasibility study, we can review our project.
Third, I think that if we do feasibility study, we can know subclinical of our project.
Fourth, I think that if we do feasibility study, we can prove that our project is legally correct.
Fifth, I think that if we do feasibility study, we can determine schedule of our project.
D. Write a paragraph explaining a business situation where a feasibility
study is necessary. Write in your own words; 100 words minimum.
I think that business situation are two.
First, I think that business situation is meeting of company that we work.
Meeting of company is very important for us because if we fall down on a
feasibility study, I think that we forfeit all claims to associate's confidence and we may be
thrown out of our job. So, I choose this situation.
Second, I think that business situation is that we search project that we
will do. Why I choose this situation because if we fall down on a feasibility study, we may do
2. work that is meaningless for we and our company.
2. CONTENT ORGANIZER - Syouhei Nakayama
A.How would you use a feasibility report for your business situation? (50
I would use the feasibility report for grasping the my business situation. I know the business
situation of the last year to use the feasibility report and make use of business situation of this
year. I use this information next year. This thing leads to activation of my business.
B. Talk about a feasibility report that you want to prepare. Explain at
least 10 major points you will include in this feasibility report of your
choice. What will be the exact purpose of the report?. Write in your own
First major points is thing that including real investigation. Second major points is thing that
thinking the result of real investigation before real investigation. Third major points is thing
writing that the consideration in detail for result. Fourth major points is thing that writing the
ways of investigation. The fifth major points is thing that thinking next investigation for
result. The sixth major points is thing that including the figure and graph. The seventh major

C. Write five sentences explaining how a company should do research before
designing a feasibility report.
Cost Based Study: It is important to identify cost and benefit factors, which can be categorized
as follows: 1. Development costs; and 2. Operating costs. This is an analysis of the costs to be
incurred in the system and the benefits derivable out of the system.
Time Based Study: This is an analysis of the time required to achieve a return on investments.
the benefits derived from the system. The future value of a project is also a factor.
The feasibility study outputs the feasibility study report, a report detailing the evaluation
criteria, the study findings, and the recommendations.
A feasibility study is an evaluation of a proposal designed to determine the difficulty in
carrying out a designated task. Generally, a feasibility study precedes technical development
and project implementation. In other words, a feasibility study is an evaluation or analysis of
the potential impact of a proposed project.
Market Feasibility Study typically involves testing geographic locations for a real estate
development project, and usually involves parcels of real estate land. Developers often
conduct market studies to determine the best location within a jurisdiction, and to test
alternative land uses for given parcels. Jurisdictions often require developers to complete
feasibility studies before they will approve a permit application for retail, commercial,
industrial, manufacturing, housing, office or mixed-use project. Market Feasibility takes into
account the importance of the business in the selected area.
3. D. Write down five key words and its meaning that you read in the above
articles. Write in your own words.
First key word is technology and system feasibility. This key word is assessment that is based
on an outline design of system requirements in terms of Input, Processes, Output, Fields,
Programs, and Procedures.
Second key word is Economic feasibility.This key word is economic analysis that is the most
frequently used method for evaluating the effectiveness of a new system.
Third key word is Legal feasibility. This key word is thing that determines whether the
proposed system conflicts with legal requirements, e.g. a data processing system must comply
with the local Data Protection Acts.
Fourth key word is Operational feasibility. This key word is thing that is a measure of how
well a proposed system solves the problems, and takes advantage of the opportunities
identified during scope definition and how it satisfies the requirements identified in the
requirements analysis phase of system development. The last key word is Schedule feasibility.
This key word is thing that A project will fail if it takes too long to be completed before it is
Typically this means estimating how long the system will take to develop, and if it can be
completed in a given time period using some methods like payback period. Schedule
feasibility is a measure of how reasonable the project timetable is. Given our technical
expertise, are the project deadlines reasonable? Some projects are initiated with specific
deadlines. You need to determine whether the deadlines are mandatory or desirable.
