DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION OF AUTOMATED FUEL DISPENSATION SYSTEM
1.1 BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
Over the years, computer has served
a vital tool for the prevision of information in business organizations today.
is hardly any serious business organization today that does not make use of
computer in its day business activities computer are used in banking operation
engineering design, research work are fuel distribution. It is common knowledge
that the application of computer in various organizational activities has help
to improve the efficiency of operation and the overall performance of
organizations. This basically can be attributed to the speed, accuracy and
storage capacity of the computer.
Distribution of fuel like any other
setup, requires a lot of computer processing before fuel can be adequately
distributed. This process include gathering of information to be used by
advert of computer blew a breeze of change across the sections of this
procedure thereby affected are the account department, production department
and sales department. Distribution comes under the sales department, this
department has always been neglected because of the computer used for
department remain vital aspect of the organization since the corporation source
income depends largely on the effective distribution and this had necessitated
the selected of this topic “Distribution System”.
OF THE PROBLEM
to lack of prompt information retrieval and time wastage in dealing with the
society or group that manages this distribution of fuel and inquiry are no
longer capable of effective handling the tremendous information about fuel.
ultimate aim of this project is to computerize fuel distribution procedure.
This is to increase the efficiency of fuel distribution. This project will open
avenue on how the computer can be fully utilized in distribution of fuel in
respect of improving the present activates using computer. The objective
1. To reduce the
rate of data manipulation, and to improve the performance of the system.
2. To reduce the
usage of file this could affect the daily production and sales information
3. To speed up
the process of fuel distribution and have better control of the activities/
4. To ensure
proper functioning of all units and department within the system.
1.4 SIGNIFICANCE OF THE PROJECT
distribution of fuel has been pf immense importance to the society and the
depot which include the following:
availability fuel has eased transportation in society.
2. Cooking has
become easier in the society, due to the production other product such as
3. The rate of
consumption of fuel by the society as served as a means of generating income to
the management of the depot.
4. It has enable
the management to increase its product.
1.5 SCOPE OF THE STUDY
project focuses the process of computerizing all the processing of fuel
distribution for convince and to avoid complexity a particular depot, Nigeria
National Petroleum Corporation(NNPC), Ibadan has been chosen as the case study.
the project also take care of the cost of litres, and issued out to various
filling station, the program will perform the following tasks.
1. It will allow
for percentage allocation for each filling station to be input when necessary.
2. The total allocation for each filling
station will be displayed.
3. The total quantity of fuel supplied and
demanded will be displayed.
OF THE PROJECT
This project prototype software
which demonstrate how fuel can be distributed to various units. It can used on
stand alone system also;
Exorbitant financial implication is
involved in using other oil company which cannot be afforded.
project will not be completed without the identification and definition of some
of the terms used in the course of writing.

7. DISPATCH: To send away, to dispose
8. CARRIER: This is the name of the
9 SUPPLYING DEPOT: The depot
supplying product to other station.
10. DRIVE WAY: Is where the fuel is
measured and discharge in the corporation and the filling station.
