The Project and Its Background
This chapter presents the introduction, background, objectives, significance, and scope and delimitation of the study.
Everything has changed due to the enhancement of the computer technology. With the use of technological discoveries and inventions, like computers, people can make things faster and easier. Computers have become important in different fields; in engineering, construction, industries, medicine, stock market and in transportation.
Computer is an electronic device that accepts processes, stores and outputs data at high speed according to programmed instructions. With its portable size, it can control infinite number of things and can access to different world. This is where interfacing is used. Interfacing is the process of connecting input/output (I/O) to a microprocessor unit or to a Personal Computer (PC) system with the purpose of making a device functional and operational. Automation on the other hand, is the use of control systems (such as numerical control, programmable logic control, and other industrial control systems), in concern with other applications of information technology to control industrial machinery and processes, reduces the need for human intervention. It lessens the need for human sensory and mental requirements as well. Since processes and systems can also be automated, engineers strive to combine automated devices with mathematical and organizational tools to create complex systems for a rapidly expanding range of applications and human activities.
The proponents believe that all educational institution promotes an edge in education and it is but natural for these institutions to provide the public the quality service they deserve. To be competitive enough in adapting to the changing environment and to improve quality service, automation should be employed on every educational institution. With the manual examination checking in BSU – Lipa Campus,...
