It is run by my uncle Victor who is very hands on with the day to day running of the business, and he has two employees who are his subordinates. Since they are only a few people working in the business, it has remained small for the past two years since it's been formed. Victor believes that business has been good since they have managed to survive these past two couple of years. The amount of customers can range from 10 cars in 5 days to only 2 cars in a fortnight. ...read more.

Moreover, doors shall be looked when the rooms aren't in use and windows should be closed typically by blinds to restrict view into the premises. The last line of security is the passwords that are set, different passwords have been set for each user, and each user has specific privileges assigned by Victor. Passwords are useful to prevent authorised access, i.e. hackers. The passwords will be at least 12 characters long to make harder to guess. The password will be immediately encrypted by the computer to prevent other onlookers from gaining the knowledge. In addition, passwords should be kept secret and changed regularly, preferably every ninety days Project Schedule Week 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 Tasks Introduction Investigation of the current system IPO of current system Data flows in the current system H/S analysis of current system ICT skills of the user(s) Identified training needs for user(s) ICT requirements of the new system Justification of chosen solution Evaluation obj of the new system Menu/Navigation Designs Interface designs System design Data validation Data security and integrity Project schedule Test strategy and plan Step-by-step construction Test table Test evidence Corrective action Introduction to the system Step-by-step user instructions Troubleshooting Evaluation of project objectives Evaluation by real end user Future developments of the solution Test Plan This is the testing section, its purpose is to draw out any apparent failures and discover what parts of the system don't work. Errors can be discovered and corrective action can be carried out remove these errors. In order for the system to be a success it primarily needs to be able to process any inputted data correctly. The test plan table states all parts of the new system that have been specified in the previous sections that need to be checked. ...read more.

Conclusion

Although advanced features have been used, even beginners can put them into use. For example, the queries use various calculations but only simple input is required by the user. * The system should have the capacity to store all of the information regarding customers and their vehicles Qualitative objectives required the database to have the capacity to store all of the information regarding customers and their vehicles. The testing section provides proof of this objective being accomplished; the amount of records allowed to be saved is only restricted by the amount of space on the hard drive which is several dozen gigabytes. * Specific records of customers should be able to be located with ease Several queries meet the objective of specific records of customers being able to be located with ease. The user can simply enter the ID number and the system can accurately locate the record immediately. Even if the full details are not available, the wild card function can act to remove this problem and still produce the same results with accuracy as well as reduce input time. * Information should not need to be entered twice, if possible it should become automated if it is a routine process Qualitative objectives also stated that information should not need to be entered twice; if possible it should become automated. This objective has not been completed; if a new vehicle record is being created that has the same customer/employee details as another record the same details will have to be entered again. The only solution I could think of was to make macros that automatically entered previous information, but considering the amount of details regarding employees and customers, an exceeding amount of macros would have to made, and new ones would have to be made as the database grows. Not only would this take up an increasingly amount of storage space between it would unnecessarily increase the end user's work load. * Filter techniques, i.e. ...read more.
