DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION OF AN AUTOMATED ASSET MANAGEMENT INFORMATION SYSTEM
CHAPTER ONE: INTRODUCTION
management is a business discipline, which describes the management of
technical infrastructure for business operation. Asset management entails managing company’s property and
investment for people and company as well, using a more technical and result
oriented approach with detail report and economic forecasting on finance and
Asset Management Software easily automates the
whole process of asset management from asset documentation, stocks, hardware
and software management, assigning asset to staff and managing categories as
well. System users are created by the system admin where each staff is able to
login in with the provided authorization and manageasset registered on the
system.The admin has the sole authority over the system.
Chapter one introduces the research work and the problem
definition of the research, and to know the aim of this research work, research
justification tells us why it is important to research on this topic; it also
covers areas like scope and limitation of study which entails the boundary of
this work. Definition of terms gives summarize what each chapter entails.
1.3.0 PROBLEM DEFINITION
This research work was undertaken to
uncover some of the problems with conventional Assetmanagement systems. Here
asset manager manages several company and
persons, he/she achieve this by taking proper documentation and record
keeping, these records grow with time and ease of use as well as retrieval of
information becomes tedious. Access to
sensitive information or portfolio becomes grueling. Using these conventional
method pose lots of constraint on managers has he/she has to move around with
large files always to be able to have first-hand access to info on demand. These
slow work process and affect rapid growth in an establishment.
1.4.0 OBLECTIVE OF STUDY
In view of the problems
mentioned above, this project is aimed at implementing an asset management
system which will exclusively:
Automate every asset manage by an individualor the
Efficiently handling of asset files and secure
channel through which asset will be store, sorted, updated and can be retrieved
at all time.
1.5.0 RESEARCH JUSTIFICATION
This research work will provide a
reliable way of handling Springlight asset effectively and eliminate the lag
time in file recovery and also with an inclusion of a search engine to search
system archives. Furthermore, it will aids structural document representation
and eliminates the tedium of performing monotonous transaction. This research
will also contribute to existing literature in this area and will serve as a
guild or blueprint for an undergraduate student.
research work “design and implementation of an interactive project management
system” will be a web-based application and will be implemented on a relational
database system(MySQL). Html(hypertext markup language), css(cascading style
sheet) and Jquery will be used to design the web-user interface, php (hypertext
preprocessor) will be used as the serve- side script language to link the
interface and the database.
1.7.0 SCOPE AND LIMITATION OF
research work is to develop a system capable of handling all Springlight
assetsboth software and hardware. The system will be able to add asset, manage
asset category, add users to the system, delete asset that have been destroy,
register asset vendors, assign asset to staff andmanage asset category, The
system will also incorporate in its design a feedback layout.
system will not incorporate in its development all the functions of an asset
management system but will focus only on the aforementioned functionalities.
The system will not be responsible for any loss of data if its environment
(network/system installed on) is corrupt.
1.8.0 CHAPTER LAYOUT
was put in place to explain what
each chapter does, chapter one introduces the project to the reader by
explaining the problems the project is supposed to solve, objective of the
study and research justification is to describe to the reader the purpose and
the importance of researching on this topic, research
methodology is all about the method used in implementing the research work,
scope and limitation describes the
boundary of the research work and where the project work can be put into use.
two deals with the literature review and state-of-the-art.This chapter
discusses literature review, what people have published related to this
research work and their shortcoming, how this present research can improve
Chapter three deals with the system design methodology i.e. collection
of tools methods and practices for achieving a task; the requirement
specification states the expectation of the system analysis, and design which
is the blueprint of what the system would carry out.
Chapter four has to do with
the implementation, system testing strategies, target computer system
requirement, software maintenance etc.
Chapter five discusses the
recommendations and conclusion part of the research work and how this work can
be applied to the problem domain.
