Abstract : This document describes the System Reengineering Assessment Method (SRAM), which is a method for assessing the costs, risks, and benefits of reengineering information systems. This method explores procedures for managers to assess existing system needs, identify candidate system options, determine comparative costs, risk, and benefits, and finally select a system option that satisfies both system and functional goals.
