The company was established 18 months ago and sells a wide variety of customised sports clothes and equipment, ranging from footballs to exercise machines. A sophisticated point of sale cash register captures all the sales, however there is currently no way for this data to be accessed for analysis of the business. To compensate, the company uses a manual, paper based system to capture product and customer information on a Sales Form at point of sale. Customer details are later transferred from the Sales Form to a card file system and are held in alphabetical order by surname or business name. There is no existing process to transfer product details from the sales forms to any other reports. When the shop first opened, the owner worked full time along with a part time sales assistant. Competitive prices, informed customer service and a willingness on the part of the owner to find specialist sports equipment for customers resulted in dramatic sales growth over the 18 month period. The shop has recently won several important contracts with local schools and sports clubs to be the supplier of their official sports kit as well as sports equipment. To meet growing demand, the shop now carries a wider range of products with an increased number and range of items held in stock. ...read more.

In addition, new capabilities such as manipulating digital video and storing audio files are now available to you - if you have the room. Hard drive storage size is measured in gigabytes, and a gigabyte (GB) equals one thousand megabytes (MB). Your primary consideration should be storage capacity. To calculate the capacity you'll need, consider the size of your applications (Windows XP needs approximately 1GB, for example) and estimate the quantity and size of the files you'll be storing (a single, typical audio CD requires approximately 600 MB). Besides size, hard drives are rated on rotational speed and interface. Higher rotational speed allows the drive to find data faster, and a faster interface makes speedier data transfers. * Rotational speed: Rotational speed is a major factor as it determines how quickly you can retrieve data (open a file, start an application, for example). The higher the RPM, the faster the data is transferred. * Interface: Drives support Ultra ATA/100 and Serial ATA. The numbers refer to the maximum burst rate at which the drive can pass data to the system (100MB per second for ATA/100 and 150MB per second with Serial ATA). .

Conclusion

requirements listed in your Investigation & Analysis section; 2 Criterion-based evaluation based upon the user requirements listed in your Investigation & Analysis section; including suggestions for improvements to your system 3 * Evaluate the success of your system - Did your system work as well as you thought it would? Did it work as you had planned? Would the company find it useful? * When writing section 'Section C - Specification' you described how you would evaluate whether your system was a success (ie a list of all the things you wanted it to be able to do) Can your system do all the things that you said it would be able to do? * Do the users find it quicker and easier to use than the old system? How much faster is your new ICT system compared to doing the same tasks by hand? E.G. how long would it take to search for all the records of female customers by hand and produce a list of their names and addresses compared to running a query in Access? * Does your user guide help them use your system? * How would you would improve or refine your system, if you had to create it again or if you had more time to add new features? (e.g. a user friendly main menu screen with buttons (macros) that take you to your forms and reports, a system that allows you to delete customers, add more validation rules (why?), add more fields (why they would be useful), add new tables to the database (eg staff details stored). J Assessment of Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar [3] To receive full marks you must spell, punctuate and use rules of grammar accurately. You must also use a range of specialist terms correctly and with precision. READ THROUGH YOUR PROJECT! If it doesn't make sense to you it is unlikely to make sense to anyone else! ?? ?? ?? ??
