I have been asked to create a computer application, either programmed or using a database, to replace the current manual record-keeping system. Definition of data requirements When a car is brought to Tod, the following information is recorded on the card "CARDTBL": (invoice number), (car registration number), (company name), (type of tyre), (date), (car mileage), (number of new tyres fitted), (comment) and (total price). The next time the company books in a recorded car for new tyres, Tod checks the cars file to see what type of tyre that car has fitted; he then ensures hat he has the required tyres in stock: "PRICELISTTBL" (type of tyres), (manufacturers code) and (customer's price ex VAT). Tod gets his tyres from one supplier only. ...read more.
