My ICT based solution.

IDENTIFY Statement of the Problem The problem is that Rotherhithe is running their library on a card-file system with details written on an exercise book. They cannot afford to employ someone to administer the system anymore, so a busy full time teacher volunteered to run the library. However she said she would only do it if the system was made simpler. The head teacher doesn't know how, but suggested that an ICT system may help. The staff will use the system, but they do not have any experience with databases and limited ICT skills. This means the system will have to be simpler and easier. There are many disadvantages about the current system. The largest one is organisation, as if the records of the paper-based system are lost or misplaced; therefore making it very difficult to trace books back and who borrowed which book. Also the fact that a person is being employed only to organise and run this system; while an easier system could mean that a teacher could operate this system part-time. The advantages of the current system are minimal. ...read more.


These files can also be backed up on a computer but you would have to photo copy or rewrite it if you are using a paper-based system. If a large mistake is made on the paper-based solution then you would have to start the whole page again, but a computer could alter these things easily. My ICT Based Solution Advantages Disadvantages The main one has to be that the system is simple. It needs to be simple because teachers who have no experience with databases will have to use this program. You don't need to buy a computer, which are fairly expensive and pay for the power you're using too. The ICT based solution is also better because the computer can store all the records of the students and books borrowed. These files can also be backed up Computers need a lot of care and attention as they can pick up viruses or other problems easily. Another advantage to the ICT based solution is that it wouldn't need someone assigned to it all the time unlike the paper-based solution. ...read more.


* To make the system efficient I will make the system as efficient as I can by making it well organised, effective, and not wasteful. * To make sure the system security is good I will make sure there is a password prompt for many settings and editing tabs so that no one can alter anything on the system. There will also be a password for logging on to the computer. * To make the system as cheap to run as possible After the computer has not been used for 2 minutes I will set a screensaver to come on which would save energy and power, therefore saving money * To report who have brought books late To set the computer to give a report at the end of every library day, so you can see who is over due or late bringing books in. * To automatically back up the system The system should back up files at the end of every library day so if data or files are lost they can be restored easily. * To virus scan the system The computer should automatically virus scan the hard drive at the end of every day.
