Readability of Article[edit]

I recently recommended Wikipedia for research for my students who are aged 16-18. They found this particular article very difficult to comprehend. Having run the text of this article through a readability formula test, the results showed that the text required graduate level reading skills to read and comprehend the article. Is there anyone who feels they are able to address this issue? One of the problems raised included the length of sentences and vocabulary that may be suitable for a wide audience including students who have limited vocabulary and interest in the subject.

There's a special version of wikipedia written for those whose grasp of english is shaky. The articles are much easier to read, relying on simple vocabulary and grammatical constructs. Go to "simple.wikipedia.org". yandman 17:41, 12 November 2006 (UTC)
I agree with yandman in that I am 17 and found this article to be easy to comprehend and sufficiently readable. Although, as this relates to an Australian Year 12 Software Design and Development course (or at least in my case it does), it is entirely possible that others may have difficulty in understanding it. Is it likely that the article would be referred to for other reasons? If so, keep it as it is, otherwise edit it accordingly. Xoddera 07:29, 6 March 2007 (UTC)
Thank for this articles, which are very usefull and readable even for those who do not belong to english mother tongue countries.Youssef —Preceding unsigned comment added by 77.42.129.119 (talk) 08:55, 13 May 2008 (UTC)

How to write a Feasibility Study[edit]

A section on how to write one would be very helpful for IPT students. I'm not so sure how myself. TerrorBite 23:34, 8 May 2006 (UTC)

Cleanup[edit]

Tagging for cleanup. The article seems to be written casually, ramble on, and make no point in particular. --Chris (talk) 13:26, 1 June 2006 (UTC)


Schedule Feasibility is written two times. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 85.225.226.233 (talk) 10:32, 2 September 2008 (UTC)

check feasibility[edit]

for a RND project using linux as a platform, PHP and perl as language, AI concepts, 2 years time, budget is 80 lakh, man power is 2 developers is the project feasible ??

Categorization[edit]

Tried to categorize the article. I put in Business_process, as I considered this a process control technique, but someone might come up with something better.

TELOS[edit]

Shouldn't a feasibility study follow five factors called TELOS? They are:

  • Technological Feasibility - does the technology exist?
  • Economic Feasibility - Is it affordable, do the benefits outweigh the costs?
  • Legal Feasibility - is there any legal impediment (e.g. the DPA)
  • Operational Feasibility - how will the new system affect people's working lives?
  • Schedule Feasibility - can the new system be implemented in the desired time-frame?

Some of those heading are on the article but not in that order. arsenalwwerulz 16:28, 23 March 2007 (UTC)

I changed the order around, to be TELOS, but retained the original extras DanielFaulknor (talk) 06:59, 24 May 2009 (UTC)

Technology >> Information Technology[edit]

The article as written equates "technology" ("the usage and knowledge of tools, techniques, crafts, systems or methods of organization in order to solve a problem or create an artistic perspective") with "information technology" ("the acquisition, processing, storage and dissemination of vocal, pictorial, textual and numerical information"). This neglects, for example, evaluating the feasibility of a proposed aircraft, bridge, or manufacturing plant.

This use of the term "technology" is far too restrictive. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 67.119.13.144 (talk) 00:41, 10 February 2011 (UTC)

Absolutely agree. I think this is easily fixed by stripping out the IT-specific terms; I took a stab at it. JustinTime55 (talk) 18:09, 11 October 2012 (UTC)
