I must Introduction state the; o User Requirements o Sources of Information o Inputs, Process and Output Required o Software Applications to be used o Objectives of the System o Design of Tables Then using this information I will implement the system to replace their current manual system. The problem the system faces is that the sports centre must do everything manually; they must file each member's into the cabinet, they must type each member's letter out, look up each member's mailing details from their paper application form and then add the details into each individual letter. This system should solve this problem, but in this section I will only design it.

Conclusion

This is better than spreadsheets as it offers a wider range of facilities and options to the user. For newsletters and other posters, a desktop publishing application would have been used such as Microsoft publisher. They can use various templates which make it easier to design the poster or newsletter. For letters, reports and other general information a simple letter would have been used. The Sports centre may have had a pre-made template which would have contained header/footer containing their information and their logo. All they would have had to do was enter the information. This would have been done using word processing, such as Microsoft Word as it is easier to enter the information and since letters are mainly formal statements Microsoft words' template would make it easier to create. Objectives of the System The system should be able to create mail merged letters containing all customer information. The system should be able to store and show customer information. The system should be able to create new customer information and sort them out alphabetically. The user should be able to see each member's information and their history. The system should be able to log each member's activities and the classes they take. The system should have security. The system should be able to add new class details and check for activity times. The system should be able to edit customer information and apply it to the database. ?? ?? ?? ?? Rohan Meswani Section E - System Design Page 1 of 12 ...read more.
