D897 – Conduct Final User Review
A final review that the users and user management are ready to take control of the system and that they accept the system as delivered to them.
This process involves conducting a final review of the new system and the implementation process with user staff and management prior to putting the application into production. Also, forms, manuals, and business procedures should be distributed. The objective is to confirm that users are prepared for the implementation of the new system, to provide last minute status and procedural information to facilitate a smooth transition, and to identify and address last minute concerns and issues.
