Introduction

Major project Introduction For the last 6 years I have been driving karts in the national championship, I have moved up through the junior ranks and am now into my last year of junior karting at the highest level of 100cc J.I.C.A. racing before moving into the senior karting classes next year. I have noticed that although the results for each race are recorded off transponders, arranging them into points and championship order can be very slow and in accurate. I plan to create a spreadsheet, which quick and easily adds up the points into a table just by typing the finishing positions into one of the sheets. The system will automatically change the scores for points and place them into a table with points order. I will be able to broadcast this onto the Internet with a site I shall create. I will then ask people who want the scores to each event to sign up, they will then be added to a mailing list and will have the results posted to them each time they are amended. I could also use this site to advertise for some sponsors. If enough people where to visit I think it would be worth wile the sponsors advertising on my site. Analysis For me to be able to analyse each task successfully I will have to read the booklet carefully deciding what the tasks are, that I need to analyse and how many of the tasks there are. There of course many small problems which go together to make the big problem these problems are as follows. 1. System to create a drivers championship 2. use a database to create a mailing list 3. A4 sheet to display the championship table Problems This sheet shows an explanation of all the problems, I will demonstrate what exactly it is that I plan to do in a short account for all three Task1 System to create a drivers championship Problem I must create a championship table using a computer program that I have at my disposal. ...read more.

Should also know when this task has been completed when I have the correct number of drivers for each class arranged in race number and then class number order. Testing I will have to test my system when It has been created. to do this I will use a fillter to select a certain class for which I need to mail the table too. The software that could be used Microsoft word This program would not be ideal for completing this sort of task because it does not set the data out in a table form, you are unable to do searches, filters or sorts, you can't put information into graphs and information can not be entered into cells. If you had a spreadsheet or database program then you would not use this, simply because it does not have the correct functions and is too difficult and far to much effort to complete the task successfully. Microsoft works This program could be used because it has a spreadsheet system, that you can do calculations on and searches that draw out the information that should be contained on the printout. You can spell check the data and the information is automatically put in a table, the program also lets you import data. There aren't really any bad points to this program.

Conclusion

can be changed relatively easily by changing it to one of the sizes already given, so you can make sure that the size is right on the screen. Paint has the option to change things in greater detail, you have the ability to do this with paint because all the images produced in it are bit mapped, this means this means that the images are made up of small blocks, these are able to be deleted separately or have there colour changed easily. Another advantage of paint would be that the program has the ability to import images from other pieces of soft or hardware such as a scanned image or photograph, these can be imported and edited inside this is program. The main disadvantage of this program is that if an image that has been imported or created loses its detail when shrunk this is mainly because all images are bit mapped and if they are shrunk less bits are used meaning the image becomes more vague. With paint, if you where to add text then once you have finished the text you don't have the option to go back and edit text. To change the font or text in anyway you must cut out the previous text frame and rewrite your text unfortunately when doing this paint may take out chunks of the background as well as the piece you are trying to delete, yet there is a way to stop this. This piece Drawing has a slight advantage in this area as images created inside this program are vector mapped this means they do not become distorted when they are enlarged or shrunk. This is a great advantage for if images need to be resized in anyway this is because they can be produced and used for any host program. This could be a disadvantage of the software because you must have a piece of software open such as Microsoft word, excel or publisher to be able to use the software. ...read more.
