Use of a database to record information on Mercedes-Benz S-Classes bought from a Mercedes-Benz showroom.

Extracts from this document...


Analysis User Requirements I am going to use a database to record information on Mercedes-Benz S-Classes bought from a Mercedes-Benz showroom. The staff and manager in the showroom will use the database. They will get all the latest information on available cars. Data Needed I will need to know all the different model types of Mercedes-Benz S-Class, which will go on our first database. Details on the customers who purchase Mercedes-Benz S-Classes from us will be put in our second database. Customer details will be taken as Mercedes-Benz S-Classes are expensive cars and theft risks cannot be taken. There will be another table for sales details incase anyone chooses to buy more than one car. The fields that will be covered in my database are model, short wheel base price, long wheel price, max power, max torque, Acceleration, max speed, fuel consumption, colour, optional extra's, registration number, surname, first name, address, post code, telephone number, customer ID, account name, card number, sort code, valid from, expires in, monthly instalment. ...read more.

I inserted all the fields that were needed. Next, I put the fields in the order I wanted them. Next I chose the format, layout, and style I wanted. Then I clicked 'Finished'. My work has been kept safe and accurate as it has been backed up and has passwords protecting it. It also has the attribute of 'Read-Only' when I am not using my database. Here are some screenshots of backups taken. Evaluation My user requirements did not exactly meet my final product as I tried different ways of improving my product requiring me to keep on updating my user requirements. I have made changes to my product to try and make it more user-friendly and efficient to use. I believe I could improve my product if I had more time to do it and better resources. I believe I could make it more presentable and professional so it would be more appealing to a customer. I would also be able to improve the efficiency of my project and make even simpler to use. I would be able to protect my project better by being able to use more powerful protecting programs. Saeed Sattar 10H Candidate No. 0226 Centre No: 52303 GNVQ: Database Project ...read more.
