Car Price Calculator

Introduction

ICT Project - Car Price Calculation I will be basing my project on a car company; the name of the company which my project will focus on is RRS Motors Ltd and is situated on North Hyde Road, Hayes. The owner of the business is Mr. Sharma and he is also its managing director. RRS Motors was established on March 19, 1999. RRS Motors currently has 5 employees. The business has faced many difficulties throughout the years but has somehow managed to save itself from termination, nowadays it is doing relatively well with profits margins increasing day by day. The main problem which they have faced over the years is that of a paper database which is extremely inconvenient because the data has to be manually entered onto paper and then filed. RRS Motors specialises mainly in Mercedes and BMW cars and parts. When a customer visits a showroom of RRS Motors, they are asked whether they are here for a car or just to buy some parts for their car. If the customer replies in favour of buying a car, they are asked if they are looking for a second hand or brand new car and what make and model they are looking for and if they would be interested in any extra features such alloy wheels etc. When the customer has made up his/her mind on what car to buy s/he needs to tell one of the employees so that they can fill in a form with all the customer's details (if they're a first time buyer from RRS Motors) as well as that details of the car that is being bought by that customer. ...read more.

system because: * 120 GB HDD: Seeing as only document files will be stored on these computers, 120 GB is more than enough as the average document file barely reaches between 1-2 Mb. * 512 Mb RAM: This amount of RAM is once again more than enough because only applications such as Microsoft Word or Microsoft Excel will be running, these applications do not take up much RAM at all therefore it is definitely the computer will not run slowly if this RAM is used only to run applications mentioned above. * 15 Inch LCD Panels: Because the monitors are LCD, they will give strain to the eyes, even if one of the employees is working on them for a long time as well as that 15 Inch is relatively large size screen so that's no problem either. * Printer: The printer, although it is multi-purpose, is a DeskJet printer which cannot print a lot of information in a short span of time so a Laser Jet printer might have to purchased, these are quite affordable so I don't think this will be a problem. * Internet Connection: For the scope at which MR. Sharma is thinking of expending his business Dial-up Internet is extremely slow and out-dated so he will definitely have to get broadband, preferably a wireless router as well so the hassle of wires is eliminated. The reason for needing an internet connection is that it is essential for effective communication via e-mail to customers especially as well as employees. * Windows XP SP2: This is one of the latest operating systems and also the most common therefore I don't think the customers will have any problems with it and neither will the employees because they are probably already used to using these at home. ...read more.

Conclusion

Any additions which need to be made to the price such as tax is to be calculated automatically (17.5% of the price added onto the original price). All other calculations which are to be made need will be made automatically using formulas created by me and are only alterable by the most prominent end user (Mr. Sharma). This once again makes the system very user friendly because no one actually has to insert their own formulas or calculate anything by themselves. 5. Once the customer has decided what they want to buy, the purchase will be added to that day's sales along with the customer information and the stock will be updated instantaneously. * The system needs to be very user friendly and has to be very easy to use. Objectives for Forms (Quantitive/Qualitive): * A professional looking letter head needs to be introduced and should be kept constant for the customer information and the payment form. It also needs to include a small space near the bottom for Mr. Sharma's signature as a sign of authorisation. * Both forms need to be precise in the information that they are needed for recording as well as being user friendly at the same time. 1. To reduce the amount of time required to fill out the form (hopefully by about 50%) it should be filled in on the computer itself. 2. No large files are to be attached (e.g. an image) to the forms as this would greatly increase the time it takes for the files to load (because the amount of RAM available is not enough to be able to load large files in a short amount of time). Hence I will carry out my coursework according to my needs and start building it from Microsoft excel. ?? ?? ?? ?? Rishabh Sharma Ms. Gill L6E/IT2 Page 1 of 9 ...read more.
