After proper testing and validation, the question arises whether the system can be implemented or not, Implementation includes all those activities that take place to convert from old system to the new. The new system may be totally new; replacing an existing manual or automated system, or it may be a major modification to an existing system. In either case proper implementation is essential to provide a reliable system to meet organization requirements.


A well designed system, if not operated and used properly could fail. Training the users is important, as if not done well it could prevent the successful implementation of the system.The intended users are identified at the requirements stage. Now the job is to train them. The users must be trained to know what their roles will be, how they can use the system and what the system will do and will not do.During the training the users were given a trouble-shooting list that identifies possible problems and identifies remedies for the problem. They were advised of the common mal functions that may arise and how to solve them.


Conversion is the process of changing from the old system to the new one. Conversions should be accomplished quickly as delays and long conversion periods cause frustration and the tasks of all involved including the analyst and user becomes more difficult.

Different types of implementation strategies

Parallel conversion - Implementing the new system along with the old system as a backup.
Direct changeover- Dropping the old system and putting the new system in to use.
Pilot Conversion – Implementing the working version of the new system in one part of the organization and when this is successful implement on another part.
Phased Conversion-Implementing the new system module wise.

Implementation of WBPMS

WBPMS was implemented with phased conversion. The organization now running the new system. The advantages of phased conversion are to overcome the disadvantage of old system and adding new features by implementing new modules.

Last Remarks

To conclude, the system developed is used to meet the requirements of the Panoram software. The features of the developed system are briefly mentioned below.
Greater Processing speed
Increased accuracy
Improved consistency
Faster information retrieval
Security against unauthorized access
Efficient data Security and integrity
Data views based on the user access and privileges.
The project profiles and over view generations.
Consolidated effort and resource estimates.
Activity allocation and activity tracking.
Communication between employees through a mailing system
