Introduction

Introduction: In this section, we will look at the analysis of the last section, the questionnaire and the interview. We will look at the reaction and the opinions expressed in the interview and results from the questionnaire. Also, we will begin to analyse the situation, and come up with a solution, a computerised one, which will mean the business has a much better link with their partners, via the internet, and added security. Analysis of Questionnaire/Interview: First, let's begin with the interview. This is when I interviewed the manager of the newsagents, Mohsin Shahabuddin, who also happens to be my uncle. In the interview, he did attempt to defend his manual system at the start, and gave some valid reasons and he did back them up. I did agree with the two points he mentioned. He also pointed out a flaw in the computer system, underlining the fact that some members of staff would need computer training. In the next question, Mohsin seemed to understand the need to adapt to the 21st century, and he began to realise, how a computer system would affect his system, and he began seeing the good ideas out of it. ...read more.

The CCTV tapes can provide evidence a court of law, so this feature is handy. Also, all files can be backed to floppy disks/zip drive, in case of a fire. Timescale Issues: Taking into account, all the equipment which has to be set up, it would take 8-10 weeks, to get training, and all the system, set up to the needs of the manager. Feasibility Study: Economical Feasibility: The resource in the shop is manual. To improve the System, the computerised system will be introduced. Due to the computers in-expense, as the computer is cheaper than �1,000, the transition from manual, to computerised will be a fairly cheap one. There will not be any need to buy extra software, as the system comes with MS Office 2000, and there is no need to get Office XP, as Office 2000 will provide adequate needs for the business. There will be no need to buy extra hardware, as the hardware supplied is enough, for the task at hand. Depending on extra investment, the system may be upgraded when necessary to. It is also very important to get insurance with computer, just in case anything is to go drastically wrong. ...read more.

Conclusion

This is an option if the budget is a very low one. Solution 3: Solution 3 is to buy software i.e. MS Office 2002 and install it on the computerised system. This is a very practical solution and a cheap one as well. Solution 4: This is a very costly solution. You can hire a programmer, and make him design a program, which is designed to your exact needs. This is a very helpful way of going about your business, but to hire a programmer would cost thousands in an overall price. This is not really a solution. I believe solution 3 is the best, as it is practical, and the system proposed, comes with one, so there is no extra cost. I have also advised the business to use a database, rather than a spreadsheet, as a database can store data in order, can be used for mail merging, and will help the computer split up their stock into different types. They may want to use the spreadsheet for automatic calculations. The solution I have proposed has made my uncle very excited about altering his business. The changes that are proposed, are very good and practical ones, and at a cost to match. Analysis Jawad Fariduddin 10SW Data Handling Project ...read more.
