1.1 Theoretical Background
Today, it is believed that the application of
computer technology in any activity would go a long way in making that activity
To the researcher, this statement remains a theory

It also believed that the benefit and advantages of
using computer out weight that of the manual methods beyond doubt by the
researcher through the implementation of the new system.

1.4 Significance of the Study
This research project will be unnecessary if it does
not have significance to humanity.
newly designed system is faster, more convenient and you do not have to go to
ticket reservation is always a safe option, unless the website is insecure.
III. Booking online ticket is
safe if the company you plan to use, uses a Secure Server Software (SSS). This
basically hides year private information from there.

also saves a lot of time for the customers because, they do not need to arrived
early to queue for ticket in case they are all sold out.
1.5 Scope and Limitations of the Study
This research project is restricted to the
implementation of an online ticket reservation system for a case study. Data
used for the study were gathered from Silver Bird, Eket.
1.6 Organization of the Research
The research project has been arranged in the order;
Chapter one contains the introduction, theoretical background, significance of
the study, organization of research, scope of the study, limitation of the
study and definition of terms. Chapter two focused on the relevant literature
review high lighting basic concepts. Chapter three is concerned with the system
design, which emphasis on system design and flowchart. Chapter four is the
system implementation which gives direction of systems and analysis of modules.
Chapter five summarizes and concludes the research work offering some useful
