ICT in Retail and the advantages to the shop and the customer.
Online shopping 22/11/11 When an item is scanned through the till, the price is received through a Local Area Network, from the database. The data received from the database is outputted with a screen, to show the customer what they've purchased. The information of what the customer has purchased is then sent to the companies HQ via a Wireless area network, to tell them what their customers are buying. If the price needs to be altered, it can be done so easily. For example, with manual methods, if an item needs to be altered, you have to change the price of every single item. However, with automated methods you can change the database to the correct price, then, once it's scanned through the till, the correct price is received from the database. You must also change the price on the shelf as customer's can grow angry if it's misleading to the customer. The benefit of this is that you can easily alter the price of one product on all items. However, if the system/database grows bugs/glitches then it may lead to the wrong prices being outputted. This means that you may be losing money as you're selling goods for much cheaper than originally proposed. Just-in-time stock is where you can re-order stock just before it has all been sold. This is good because it improves cash flow as you don't have order large quantities of stock, and keep it in a store room. You are buying and
In the perspective of our country, Medical appointment/treatment (which is a part of the whole Medical system) is very much old-fashioned and backdated.
PROBLEM DEFINITION In the perspective of our country, Medical appointment/treatment (which is a part of the whole Medical system) is very much old-fashioned and backdated. It is a very long process as well as tiring experience for anyone to go to a doctor in our country. One has to go through a number of obstacles to reach the particular doctor he or she needs/requires. These types of lengthy systems are very much familiar in the government hospitals (obviously in our country). Although, the private hospitals these days are a little bit upgraded, they are not up to standard. Our proposal/goal is to develop a Medical appointment/treatment management system (which is a software) to improve this current hazardous situation. This software will improve the skill and performance of the people (working in a hospital), that will save a lot of time of patients and the institute itself. It will help to manage the works more efficiently and in an easier manner. The service will be much more high class comparing to the current situation due to usage of latest technology. SOFTWARE MODELS At first, we have chosen three software process models (for convenience) from which one of them will be chosen to implement the software. The models are: - ) The Linear Sequential or Waterfall Model 2) The Prototyping Model 3) The Incremental Model At a glance, we want to look at the advantages

I was hired by Mr Davies to create a website for a newly built nursery, Leapfrog based in Dagenham. The sectary will then change and update the website weekly, to inform parents about coming events or information needed.
Analysis Background I was hired by Mr Davies to create a website for a newly built nursery, Leapfrog based in Dagenham. The sectary will then change and update the website weekly, to inform parents about coming events or information needed. The nursery which was built in 2008 is now a well established nursery based in Dagenham, boxwell Road, near the noticeable Ford factory. The nursery was designed specially for children from the ages 3 to 4 year olds. It contains: A reception area, accessible by a ramp. A carpeted area divided into bays for books, construction activities, and role play another room for separate for girls and boys. A creative area contains sand and water activities, toys and painting kits, etc. The problem The only major problem is that due to increasing number of kids wanting to attend the nursery, there is little space to accept more children into the nursery. This nursery does not have a website at the moment because they there isn't enough time and the school doesn't have qualified technicians to manage and make a website, that's why they employed me to make a website so they could get wider audience. The website will allow parents to know about the nursery and be able to obtain any information they need. The website could also inform the audience of any vacancies. Possible solution I can suggest ways to help make the nursery more noticeable
Topic 8 - Development Methods
Topic 8 - Development Methods Linear methodology - systems development methodology where the project is divided into sequential phases where one phase is completed before the next one starts. Iterative methodology - attempts to solve a problem by finding successive approximations to the solution starting from an initial guess. Iteration means the act of repeating a process usually with the aim of approaching a desired goal or target or result. Each repetition of the process is also called iteration and the result of the last iteration is used as a starting point for the next iteration. System Investigation/Feasibility Project definition: Is identifying the problem that needs to be solved using ICT and then stating what the problem is in clear terms by writing a project definition. Aims & Objectives of the New System: Is the definition that will be stating aims and objectives of new system. These might include: * Being able to accurately predict delivery dates for customer orders. * Reducing number of input errors. * Reducing the number of part deliveries by having a much more efficient and accurate stock control system. Cost Benefit Analysis: Being able to create a new system with stated aims and objectives at reasonable cost, this is called a feasibility report, where the costs and benefits are weighed up. Initial Fact Find: Will give information on what is required
Individual in society
Task 1 Introduction The access to information that has been created by the World Wide Web has been a huge effect on society and how individuals live their lives. Moreover, because of the huge volume of information available, finding information the information you need is not is always not straightforward. In this task I have been asked to use my internet skills to identify websites that could identify possible mobile phone service providers. About how be finding out what is a search engines, how do they work, how they work and all the different types of search engines they are. To do this I will have to find out as much information I can about search engines by using different resources. I will also use and try many search engines to find relevant information to prove/disprove my five hypothesis. The information am looking for should be a paragraph. I will be looking for the best possible package, including free minutes and texts and a good choice of available mobile phone models, r alternatively choose a pay as you go tariff. I will also report it back to him with the finding of the research as well as conducting some financial analysis which should give him an indication of values for money. Search Engines A search engine is the program that searches documents for specified keywords and returns a list of the documents where the keywords were found. Although search
