1 QCONTENTS 2 ANALYSIS [TOTAL: 12 MARKS] 2.1 Identify a Problem [4 marks] 2.1.1 The Organisation [1] Mr Philip is the owner of a small shop in east London, which is called laptop4u. He has been in business for a year and he thinks now it is time to produce a computer system to organise his business. As a result, he has asked me if I can help him. He needs a computer system that he can store laptops and customers details to make his life easier and to give him a feeling that his small shop is livelier and up-to-date. In order to be successful he needs to have a computer system which can organise his small business. The shop includes the owner and two other shop assistants who service customers. They sell new laptops and second-hand laptops. This project will be dealing with the problem that Mr Philip is having at the moment in his shop. Later on I will discuses the problem he is facing such as information always cannot be found. I imagine this system will deeply aid his business in many ways. 2.1.2 The Problems [1-4] * Changing data The users find it difficult to keep information up-to-date. * Price lists The users have difficultly to print an up-to-date price list easily when the prices change. * Speed of search When a question is asked it takes time to search because sometimes customers have a particular laptop in their mind and they can ring up the shop to see if the owner has one in the shop as a result the users are not able to provide the information quickly to the customers. * Contact customer The users extremely find it difficult to contact customers because they have to go through many steps in order to find out customer details and if they successful to contact costumers it usually takes a long time. ...read more.


I did not choose to use the alternative methods because by using a questionnaire I won't be able to understand the problem deeply because the owner will only answer the questions I ask and I cannot ask other questions to have a clear understating. Another reason why I did not choose to use this method to obtain is that questions need to be careful planned. 2.3 Identify the Inputs, Outputs and Processing Required [4 marks] 2.3.1 Input, Output and Processing Requirements [1-2] * Price lists The users need to be able to print an update price list easily. Input: Query - Brand = Toshiba + prices Output: The users need to see all Toshiba laptops with their prices.

They need to be able to answer this question without leaving their desk and quickly. Input: Query - Model = Sony and Colour = black Output: this list of information must be shown on the computer screen: * Model * Brand * Processor Type * Width * Height * Memory Size * Memory Type * Hard Drive Capacity * Price * Colour Processing: The users ask the customers to hold on, go to the box that the details cards are kept and go through each card. * Contact customers The users need to be able to see a list of details of customer who wants a particular laptop in order to send a letter to customer about his/her order. ...read more.
