Introduction

By Miglena Ilieva 12.0 Pimlico School About the Business I'll use 'Ki for hair' as a basis of my project. This is a hairdressing salon in Camden Town, where Myra Ferreira keeps her own business. She is the manager of the salon, although there are two more workers (hairdressers). I worked there last summer (2002) and I know how they manage their entire budget on paper base. She started with a small business two years ago and still keeps all her income and expenses manually. Every hairdresser has a minimum of three clients per day usually, which means about 270-300 clients per month. The situation now To keep all the paper work, safe and in order they need a separate room. It takes a day for two people to produce the monthly reports, which means they lose about 6 clients a day (12 clients every month). The monthly report itself is working out the income and expenses and therefore the profit and producing it clearly for every single month. Although it is going fine, the business is getting bigger and needs a system, which makes the budget more accessible, produces clear reports for the tax purposes and takes less time to be done. How the ICT can help Computers have many applications in the 21st century. ...read more.

3.) What IT skills do you think you have? (e.g. can you work with the operating system, do you know how to use Microsoft Office, etc.) 4.) What do you want the system to look like? I also asked the manager what her expectations were ... "As we are not familiar with ICT our main requirement is that the system should be user friendly and easy to follow. The only data that will have to be entered into the new system will be the assigned item number. When more than one of an item is required it will be entered twice, as this will be quicker. The rest of the information will be worked out by the system. Good luck!" Myra Ferreira Manager of Ki for Hair What do I expect from the system? The system must be easy to understand and use, so that any user with no computer knowledge could easily make use of the system. Much time will be saved as the computer will automatically set up the layout and the users will only have to input the required data. * First every user is going to have his/her own ID and password; * Once the user's logged on, he/she is going to have access to the main directories, which are: the prices, the customer accounts and the monthly reports; * Every user will have the priority to edit information, excluding editing the prices; * The change (editing) ...read more.

Conclusion

* He/she should have basic thinking skills such as knowing how to learn and seeing things in the mind's eye and personal qualities such as self-management and integrity To make my system work and be more efficient, I will: * Consider the user's requirements very carefully, e.g. the layout, appearance, colour restrictions and the paper size, while I'm carrying out the design * Prepare a test strategy and test plan * Evaluate the final solution * Write user manuals on how to use the system I'd have created. Input, Process and Output Input-Process-Output. These are the basic functions of a computer. Data must be fed into the computer (input), which is then analysed and reorganised (process), and then it is displayed or printed (output). Input- it's the data the user will be putting in, in my case the number of haircuts, blow-dries, etc. In order to make my system work more efficiently I'll use data validation such as putting certain letters or numbers in certain cells. The process- it's the processing of the initial data put by the user and done by the system. The output- this is the final result of the input and the process; in my case the output is going to be a hard copy of the monthly reports.
