How the user skills affect design

Training required

1.Mr Bradshaw

Add new data- such as entering new customers, new DVDs and new rentals
Editing data - Changing current data in the system
Deleting data - deleting information on existing customers, DVDs or rentals. Will also delete entire forms.

very little computer skills, but Mr. Bradshaw emphasises that he is more than willing to learn how to use the system

as the user has minimal knowledge of using an ict system the solutions design will have to be very user friendly. This design will have to be clear with a consistent style and layout. Buttons will need to be generic throughout the database. The user guide will need to be very detailed covering all aspects of the database in easy to understand language, not using difficult terminology.

Overview of the purpose of the system
The filling of forms and saving them
loading the system
using the relevant command buttons and adding data to the system and deleting data
Using queries and printing reports

2.Mrs Bradshaw

Add new data- such as entering new customers, new DVDs and new rentals
Editing data - Changing current data in the system
Deleting data - deleting information on existing customers, DVDs or rentals. Not aloud to delete entire forms

3.Jason Bradshaw
(Mr Bradshaw's son)

Add new data- such as entering new customers, new DVDs and new rentals
Editing data - Changing current data in the system
Deleting data - deleting information on existing customers, DVDs or rentals. Not aloud to delete entire forms

Fairly good computer skills- has some experience from school as he is a student. Can use access and many other programmes.

Jason does have a fair amount of knowledge with using ict systems but his skills will not effect the database because he works on a part time basis and Mr. and Mrs. Bradshaw are the main users. Jason's skills could help his parents with using the database, and could be able to update the database if needed.

even though Jason has good knowledge about using an ict system he will still need training.
