It is linked to the rest of the organisation as follows: As it is a very small company many of the departments overlap and are managed by the same people. All decisions are made centrally by the owner. There is also outside influences such as the two manufacturers of the ice cream. Initial Statement of Problem The current system used for ordering ice cream from the manufacturer is paper based. Each week the remaining ice cream in the cold store is counted physically counted and recorded manually. Many problems arise from this, as the system is not reliable. A computerised system is required to increase accuracy. The Current System Fact Finding - Transcript of first interview with Emily Brittan
How ICT has affected my life at home or school
How ICT has affected my life at home or school In this task I will give details about how ICT has affected my school and social life. I will include my use of software like Microsoft word, internet, email and Lime wire. These programs have helped me on my class work and homework and they have also helped me keep in touch with my family and friends and also have improved my social life. There are many other uses of ICT like USB Flash Drives, mp3 players, and DVD's. My Social Use Microsoft Word Processor ICT has helped me in so many ways to make my social life easy. To improve my letter writing I use Microsoft word processor which is software that enables people to input a piece of writing. This software has assisted me to improve my home work with the help of different tools. I get pleasure from typing up work as it is a lot easier and neater than writing with a pen. If I wish to add a different piece of work then I can do so without hesitation just by copy and pasting. If I make a mistake then the computer will automatically underline my mistake and will give me the choice of correcting it. Although at times the computer will not recognise a few words. Microsoft word processor allows me to align my work for example if I am writing a poem then I can centre align, if I'm writing a letter then I can right align. As well as writing I can also add pictures to my work by using
Comparing Documents My second task is to compare a few different documents of three different organisations, the three organisations are: . JJ PC 2. Wessex Water 3. Coffee Control JJPC sells computers, Wessex Water is a water company and Coffee Control is and internet café. I have to annotate the three documents, describe the content and layout, comment on the differences, similarities and finally come to a conclusion of each document. The documents that I will be comparing are: * Questionnaires * Newsletter * Memo * Invoice * Business Letter * Poster My first document that I will be analyzing will be the three questionnaires. Comparing Questionnaires A questionnaire is a form containing a set of questions. JJPC's logo has been placed in the top right hand corner and it is orange, their logo is just simple and bulky, in my opinion I think that this is great because the audience will be able to see it as it should be seen. Coffee control have two logos one on each side but it is very small, their logo has a picture of a mug in it, which is black and gives the customer an idea of what the questionnaire is about. The colour of coffee controls logo is turquoise and white. Wessex water has only one logo which is in the middle and at the top of the page it is in blue but it isn't that clear because it is uncertain. Personally, I think JJPC's logo is the most
ICT Project 1A
Project 1A - Webpage's We need to make a website. To do this successfully we will have to gather information from the internet and use our own knowledge to create a reliable website. We will also have to use different ways of presenting our website. This will widen our knowledge of how to create websites. My website is going to be about Tokio Hotel. It will be a challenge to gather non biased information about the band because generally people only create a website of a band to express their strong like/dislike of the band. I have an interest in the band and it will defiantly be an enjoyable task. It will be aimed at kids of my age group. This means that though it will have to be quite an informal piece I will be able to have fun with it. It will have to be a 'lively' website to capture and retain the audience's interest. I hope to create a large, fun, formal website. My website will inform people who are already interested in Tokio Hotel about interesting facts that they may not know. I will include background pages (fact files, life stories etc), music pages (including videos if possible) and a gallery where fans can copy the best pictures of the band members that I have found on the internet. My website will be aimed at fans who want to know more about this amazing band. SUMMARY The music information and the information about the band that appeared on my webpage
Documentation of video shop database.
Documentation of video shop database User guide For the video shop project I created a database on Microsoft access. To get to the database you have to do the following . Turn computer on and log onto the computer. 2. Then once the computer has loaded up double click on the icon which looks like this: 3. Once the programme has loaded up a window will appear and to carry on to access the video database click on OK. 4. Then this window appears and to access the video shop databases double click on OTHER folder. 5. Then another window appears and shows you what the other folder contains. It shows that the video database is in this folder. To access it just double click on it using the right mouse button. 6. Then another window will appear and you have now accessed the video databases. This window appears and shows all the things available on my data base. The table: The table is the main design point for the database. You decide what field names and what special checks should be done into the database to reduce the amount of mistakes. To view the table form of the database you click on which table you want to view (video table, video taken out table or the member table click on the label that says TABLES and then double click on what table you want to see. (Diagram on the next page) Then a table appears showing all the records in that file. Below is the table for
The Impact of ICT - the advantages and disadvantages of different types of ICT
The Internet This software is a program that allows people to stay in contact and complete processes otherwise un-doable. It was originally made so American scientists could communicate across the country with ease. This has affected billions, with over 1 quarter of people having access to it. Advantages - Easy information access - Many applications for everyone Disadvantages - Unsecured, and some information false - Easy for fraudsters. Television- Television is a method of sending and receiving visual and aural data. People also use CCTV (closed circuit television) to capture the aforementioned. TV has been used and advanced since the late 1930s. Advantages - Many attachments for it. - Advanced and is a worldwide used product Disadvantages - Can be very pricey - Peoples lives revolve around it. iPod iPods are MP3 players made by the computing company, Apple. They are much higher in price than other MP3s, possibly because of the brand and compatibility of the products. Now there are so many of this specific brand, from the 'nano shoots video' campaign advertising the new iPod Nano, to 'the funnest iPod ever', the new iPod touch with it's massive selection of games and applications. Advantages - Music on the go - Many interactive features Disadvantages - iPods are associated with many road accidents - Very expensive Computers Computers are machines
If the IT industry is such a big business why do so many dot-coms fail?
Retesh Veja If the IT industry is such a big business why do so many dot-coms fail? You can do almost any thing on the Internet; shop, bank, search for information, chat to other people and more. So there is a big business out there to make big cash! Why do so many businesses try out on the web? Large number of internet users The number of people using the web is increasing each day because it's quicker and easier to do everyday tasks. So businesses think a lot more people are going to pass their sites on the web than there shop window. Cheaper It's cheaper to set a web page than a shop because of the rents, the electric and heating bills, furniture and you would need fewer employees. More efficient You could down load your orders on a database each day and send it off to a supplier and they can deliver direct this way you don't have to stock lots of products and there would be no wastage. 95 percent of dot-com businesses fail. So what is the cause of so many failures? These five factors cover the main reasons. . The Wrong Marketing Mindset Letting your customers know that you exist is very important because people don't walk in and out a web page like they do in a shop. You need a good name so everyone will remember it. Marketing an on line business is not as easy as putting signs in the local paper and the Yellow Pages or handing out flyers and waiting for
Social and Moral Implications of ICT
Social, moral and cultural implications of ICT The increase in development of ICT has had large impact on the society that we live in. Each new development in information technology raises new social, economic, ethical and moral issues. Worldwide developments in communication technology via mobile, satellite, wireless and cable will continue to enhance Internet access and change many aspects of our lives. For example, advancements in technology have made huge changes in the way shops are run. Most large shops now have Electronic Point of Sale (EPOS) terminals, which are cash registers that also act as terminals to a main computer system and till receipts are produced. Bar codes on a product are scanned to record the sale, identify the item being sold and can automatically update the shop's stock list. Electronic Funds Transfer at Point of Sale (EFTPOS) are similar to EPOS and allow transfers of funds directly from a customers bank account to the shops' bank account when a credit or debit card is used by the customer. This technology acts as a simpler way of transferring funds and prevents errors in calculating stock and payments. There is less chance of theft because no cash is used and it is more secure for transferring large amounts of money. Online shopping has also changed the way many people buy and sell products, allowing customers to shop at the convenience of
Developing a Business
Ownership The type of ownership for the business will be a partnership. This is the most obvious choice as there are two people involved, my business partner and me. A partnership can involve between two and twenty partners allowing for further expansion and more financial backing if needed. The partnership would be owned in a ratio of 60:40, me owning 60%. This means we would share the cash input and profits and losses in this ratio, which is bad in the short-term for me, but hopefully good in the long-term. A partnership brings additional expertise from all the partners. A formal partnership agreement would have to be drawn up to settle any disputes. The problems with a partnership are that there is unlimited liability meaning that it is possible to lose personal possessions e.g. car and house, and that there is limited cash input. Cash would only be available internally and with loans. The alternative was a private limited company (ltd.) which would have a larger financial backing and limited liability to the value of shareholding, but in the long-term there is less profit and less control when shareholders come in to the plan as well as high set-up costs.Limited companies also have to pay more tax. Name The name for the business that I have decided on is?????? this conveys the message that the company operates in the UK an could also be in europeain countries Aims
The new London Millennium Eye is possibly biggest sightseeing experience in the world: ICT evaluation
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). This system is designed for the managers of the eye and can be used on the main London management computer. For this system to work probably it will require the information about how many capsules are currently available, how many are booked privately and how many are out of service. Also you will need the number of people who pre-booked
