Chapter 3
3.1 Statement of Asssumptions
The following assumptions were considered while conducting the research: 1. That the school will have an automated enrollment system 2. That the system will be secured and fast.
3. The system will have be reliable in storing and organizing data. 4. The system will have accurate result/queries.

3.2 Operational Definition

3.2.1 Definition of terms
System - s a set of interacting or interdependent components forming an integrated whole or a set of elements (often called 'components' ) and relationships which are different from relationships of the set or its elements to other elements or sets. Record - the practice of maintaining the data of an organization from the time they are created up to their eventual disposal. This may include classifying, storing, securing, and destruction (or in some cases, archival preservation) of records.

3.2.1 Definition of processes
Enrollment - Matriculation, the process of initiating attendance to a school Automation - The automatic operation or control of equipment, a process, or a system. The techniques and equipment used to achieve automatic operation 3.3 Theories used in the study

Information system(IS) is a system that is capable of processing an information to help an individual or a whole company. Information system is also capable of AI(Artificial Intelligence) which can help people to make better decision without the difficulties. Information system has four phases

Input phase
During the input phase , data are transformed into a data which can be processed by a computer or a machine. Processing Phase
During the processing phase , all the data that is part of the activity will be manipulated. Output Phase
During the output phase, the computer gives the user the processed data. These data are the day-to-day requirement for an activity. Storage Phase
The final phase is the storage phase, this phase involves storing of data,information and instructions. Management information system (MIS) - provides information that is needed to manage organizations efficiently and effectively. Management information systems are not only computer systems - these systems encompass three primary components: technology, people (individuals, groups, or organizations), and data/information for decision making. Management information systems are distinct from other information systems in that they are designed to be used to analyze and facilitate strategic and operational activities in the organization. Academically, the term is commonly used to refer to the study of how individuals, groups, and organizations evaluate, design, implement, manage, and utilize systems to generate information to improve efficiency and effectiveness of decision making, including systems termed decision support systems, expert systems, and executive information systems.. Most business schools (or colleges of business administration within universities) have an MIS department, alongside departments of accounting, finance, management, marketing, and sometimes others, and grant degrees (at undergrad, masters, and PhD levels) in MIS. In a management information system, modern, computerized systems continuously gather relevant data, both from inside and outside an organization. This data is then processed, integrated, and stored in a centralized database (or data warehouse) where it is constantly updated and made available to all who have the authority to access it, in a form that suits their purpose. Though it is sometimes applied to all types of information systems used in businesses, the term "management information systems, " or MIS, actually describes specific systems that "provide managers with reports and, in some cases, on-line access to the organization's current performance and historical records, " Laudon and Laudon noted. "MIS primarily serve the functions of planning, controlling, and decision making at the management level." MIS are one of a number of...
