The new London Millennium Eye is possibly biggest sightseeing experience in the world: ICT evaluation

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Brief The new London Millennium Eye is possibly biggest sightseeing experience in the world. When I went to it in half term I found that queing in the ticket office and the boarding gate was very boring and you had to wait a long time. I aim to design a spreadsheet which will assist in the running of the eye and provide people with and provide customers with an estimated waiting time depending on the number of people who go though the ticket office. Proposal I have recently been to the London Millennium Eye. When we arrived we had to queue for ages. I will use ICT to predict queuing problems at the Ultimate Sightseeing Experience (The London Eye). I aim to solve this problem by designing a spreadsheet using Microsoft(r) Excel XP. This will hopefully be able to simulate a day at the eye. For example you can type in the number of people visiting and it will tell you how many capsules are needed and whether there will be queuing or not. It will also display the waiting time for people at different point in the queue (Front, middle, back). ...read more.

Conclusion

Making it easier for the cashier selling tickets. Looking at prices for Individuals parties. The formulae I am looking at is in this column for individuals/parties. The formula times the number of adults, children, senior citizens and disabled people with the cost for that particular person in the prices sheet. For example Adults are charged the adult price (5 x �9.50) Children are charged the children price (3 x �5.00) Seniors are charged the Seniors price (1 x �7.50) Disabled people are changed the disabled price. (0 x �7.50) The same happens with the group party column but it times the number of people by prices in the group section. Entire System Evaluation When I originally had the idea for my system, some of my ideas were far to complicated to achieve. So I tried to design a more basic system with less complicated things in. If I had been able to I would have added a clock into the system so the spreadsheet could automatically remove peoples information from the list after they have travelled on the eye. I would also like, if time, to try and add a feature for mangers to print a full report of people who have come though the millennium eye over a period of a day, a week etc. ICT Coursework 1 of 23 ICT Coursework Page 20 of 23 ...read more.
