SYSTEM SCOPE The new system will replace the existing system (which only records Cottages information and prints these on reports to the management) so as to include all processing of a customer's booking through to recording it's its cottage number, time and date.

PROCESSING 1 Automatically price booking - including discounts available The system should be developed to use the standard colours and logos throughout. Most users of the system should be able to use the system without extra software training (for example in ACCESS) although they will obviously need training to use the system itself. The user was interested in providing a capability for customers to order directly onto a Qualcotts web site on the Internet. Although this is not part of the scope of the proposed project, in the future it is expected that this will be required so the project should try to ensure that the project work can be used as the basis for this future capability.
