1.1 Overview of the Current State of Technology
This Chapter will discuss the problems of the Manual Food Ordering System and the Computerized Fast Food Ordering System. The use of computerized system technology is expected to continue to grow in the food industry as the cost of components decrease, as components are continually improved to withstand the rigors of the food processing environment, and as food companies continue to update production facilities, equipment and manufacturing processes in an attempt to produce high quality, high value products. New process design will strive to achieve safe quality products, while at the same time reducing production time and cost. The use of computerized control systems in the production of food products lends itself to fulfilling those goals. 1.2 Background of the Study
The Manual Food Ordering System requires manual recording of the order details of a customer and manually compute the total bill of the customer. The customer will order a food and the waiter or crew will list down all the order then the crew will manually compute the total amount of bill. The order detail is written in a piece of paper and it tends to produce errors. Also, this kind of system is very time consuming. The business does not have any database to record or monitored business sales. The proposed system solved this problem. The Computerized Fast Food Ordering System is equipped with a user-friendly interface to process food orders. When the customer ordered, the cashier will enter all the orders. The system will compute for the total amount and then back up the file in the database for the daily sales report. The system will output official receipt containing the order item, price, customer details, date and time, and the total amount. For this system there will be a system administrator who will have the rights to enter the menu with their current prevailing prices. The Administrator can enter anytime in the system by...
