1.2 Purpose of the project
The purpose of the project entitled “Automation of Clearance management System” is to study the current system and develop a windows application that automates the clearance circulation system. In view of the fact that the existing system is manual, which is paper based, charging and discharging of clearance, keeping records of eligible users, and collecting overdue fines is a tedious work and the circulation desk assistants are tired. Moreover, this manual system makes difficult for both the desk assistants and the registrar circulation head to prepare monthly and annual report since they have to go through each and every document manually to prepare the reports.
Therefore, taking the above situations into consideration the proposed system will solve the above problems by automating the clearance circulation system in a manner that is efficient and easy to use.
