Introduction

ICT COURSEWORK SYSTEM FOR A SMALL BUISNESS I am designing a data system for a 3D ICT company that sells and makes a wide range of equipment to make 3D packages for other business and websites. The business ahs been going well over the last year where we first opened our doors to the public, sales are up and the company needs to have a better hold on its finances and stock. The systems I will need to look at: 1. The sales of products by type 2. Employees cost 3. Fixed and variable costs (e.g. rental and electricity) 4. Stock which is selling well and not selling well 5. Stock level 6. Materials need to make products 7. Machinery that cost money or labour 8. Maintenance THE SALES OF PRODUCTS BY TYPE The products, which my company sells will be listed in order of alphabetical order or order, of which they are selling so the best selling items at the top and the worst selling items at the bottom. Also on this the information would also tell me the level of stock, which my warehouses and shops have, which also links to point 5. ...read more.

because the items could be listed in order of type, e.g. products for web sites or products for computers. STOCK LEVEL The stock level would be done on a database and it would tell me the level of stock which I am holding, this would be helpful because it would notify me what items I need restock on, and tell me when I need to order the products before I have none left to sell which could leave my company losing customers as the customers may go else were. MATERIALS NEED TO MAKE PRODUCTS The materials need to make products would also be listed in a database and would interact what materials I am low on so that I no when I am making my products what would stop me from not having enough stock in. With this PROBLEMS Some of the problems, which my company are having, are that my company are finding it hard to work out how much we are having to pay our staff and fill that we could be over or under paying are staff. A solution which my company could use to resolve this is by have a spreadsheet which will contain all the employees names and will have how much they get paid by ...read more.

Conclusion

This is what it looks like on Microsoft excel. To make sure that only the correct person can use the spread sheet I will protect it with a password. To do this I will go to the "Tools" on the toolbar and go to protection, which will allow give me 3 options, * Unprotect Sheet * Protect Workbook * Protect and share workbook The Protect Workbook option will give me a box which allows me to protect the spreadsheet from be changed. This will not help as it means that no one can use it with out knowing what the password is. This protect sheet option asks you to have a password which you enter each time you want to edit or use the spreadsheet. If I use the Protect and share workbook option it will give me a different box than the Protect Workbook option. The protect and share workbook gives me the option of protecting my document, meaning that no one can change the spread sheet, but they can still use it to find the wages. This is the best option for me as it means no one could change the details on the spreadsheet but use it only to get the wages need. ...read more.
