Introduction

Tuesday 30th October 2001 Analysis of Tasks Source of idea: "The Marrakech" with a restaurant selling traditional Arab foods. Project idea: I have decided to base my project on the bed and Breakfast restaurant owned by family friends in Edinburgh, Scotland. The following is a brief out line of the sub problems I have created for myself: 1. Creation of a logo which identifies and represents the business. 2. A database of customer details. This task will also consist of a form for potential customers wanting to book rooms. 3. A menu - this task will cover both AM and PM food orders - breakfast and dinner. The Marrakech does not provide lunch. 4. A spreadsheet related to the Bed and Breakfast part of the business. This spreadsheet will include things such as the cost of each individual room. 5. As most customers attend the Marrakech as a family group - which works out cheaper task five will be a plan of a family room the Bed and Breakfast provides. Analysis of Individual Tasks Task 1: Input requirements For the creation of the logo I need to find out what the business would like me to have. To do this I will need to design two different logos for them to choose from. ...read more.

* Does the database have a 'Which Date?' query installed so staff can type in a particular date and find out what is happening? * Are customer details accurate and correctly spelt? * Does the database only show customer details for the Bed and Breakfast side of the business? * Is a form included? * Is the form relevant (when taking into consideration the questions asked)? * Is the form clear and easy to use? Testing: Testing is applicable for this task and is represented in the double booking query/s. I will also you testing in this task by comparing my computer results with manual search results. Task 3: Input requirements: I need to find out what all the Arab foods served are and how much they will cost. I must also find out where it is the customers are served and the times too. As the Marrakech does not provide lunch and breakfast is only provided free of charge to those customers that are staying over night in the Bed and Breakfast. Output requirements: I must finally produce two different menus, one for breakfast and the other for dinner. These menus will include times and locations. They must clearly state that the Marrakech does not serve lunch and that breakfast is only provided free of charge to those who are staying overnight in the Marrakech Bed and Breakfast. ...read more.

Conclusion

* Is it clear what both the spreadsheet and the invoice are for? * Does both the spreadsheet and invoice fit onto one side of A4 paper? * Has a formula copy been printed off on one side of A4 paper? Testing: Testing may be applicable for this task. For example: if I am looking at one particular package and I know the final/total cost must be a certain figure. I can then test to make sure that both my spreadsheet and invoice come to that very same total. I can also test either manually or by using a calculator to calculate mathematical figures. Task 5: Input requirements: To produce the plan of the most popular room size at the Marrakech I must find out what they (the family rooms) look like and what facilities they include in order for me to duplicate it on - screen in a graphics package. For example: Phones, TV sets, hair dryers etc are all included in every room. Output requirements: I must finally produce both a detailed and general plan of the most popular rooms in the Marrakech - the family rooms. Performance criteria: I will judge my work against the following questions: * Is it clear which room the plan is of? * Are all the utilities included on the plan? * Is the plan accurate? * Can the plan be used? * Does the plan fit onto one side of A4 paper? Testing: Testing is not applicable for this task. ...read more.
