Introduction

Specification For my project, I would be creating a system for a company which is called Automania (garage). I choose to design this system because I think the business is weak at keeping details of the products which are in stock.The Automania private limited company which is a garage and it is located in West Ealing, the company employs 5 employees and it has been running it business for 25 years.

Therefore, this creates a problem in the sense that the values calculated may not give a true figure. Another problem that can occur from calculating manually is that the process is time consuming. And this evidence clearly has shown in the questionnaire which I did. And he also, uses telephone to order any products which are limited in the stock. Now, he interested in using a computerised stock control system in the business. Mr. A.S.Mudhar has experience of using word processing software and he knows how to set up a simple spread sheet. Interview Before creating the excel I determined to interview the end user to expand my understanding of his current system and identify the user needs so, I can provide end user with clear documentation of the user requirement specification and it will also, will enable me to create the appropriate system for my end user. ...read more.
