THE PROBLEM AND ITS BACKGROUND
In today’s modern age where computer has become a way of life, it is evident that a majority of the country’s institutions still do not adapt the high technology. We all know that modern schools are now operating at great pace striving to serve as many students as possible with the best of their abilities. But as the years rolled by, the number of students has grown and various private and public schools arise that the manual method of monitoring students is no longer practical.
In this study, the developer is hoping to develop a system that will help not only the students, but the whole campus as well. Adding function for the provided identification barcode of the ID school, and keeping track of students who will be enrolled to avoid trespassers that may cause unlikely activities such as stolen valuables, and the like, therefore will allow professors, guards, and staff ease in keeping the campus secured and monitored during the entrance of students – a system that will be automated, user-friendly, time effective, and efficient. 1.1 Background of the Study
Our Lady of Perpetual Succor School, OLOPSS, came as a vision to a couple from Laoag City, Dionisio Alonzo Salvador, Sr. and wife Carmen Caday Salvador who found home in Marikina in the early 70’s. In 1995, College Department was opened, changing the school name into Our Lady of Perpetual Succor College, OLOPSC.
During the developer’s college years since 2010 in Our Lady of Perpetual Succor College, OLOPSC, school IDs have their own barcodes, with only one function, for the use of the library. Where it is scanned by a barcode scanner or reader, to know if there are any other borrowed books that will be, or haven’t been returned.
Now more than ever, growth of popularity have increased, that is why students enrolling to different universities and colleges increases. A college or university is primarily devoted to the progress and security of students. Basically, students spend a substantial amount of time in classrooms and/or laboratories waiting for information to be delivered by teachers/professors, and the safety performed by the security guards. The degree to which the students are satisfied with the knowledge and safety received is relative not only to the professors' expertise in their field and the guards' duties, but also to the quality of the school management. And we all know that as the number of students continually increase, maintaining the security of a school can also become increasingly difficult, especially if everything is done manually. 1.2 Conceptual Framework
Paradigm for barcode enabled entrance system in college. 1.3 Objectives of the Study
The general objective of this study is to design and develop an automated security help solution that will serve as a proposal to help security guards monitor the difference of enrolled students from not enrolled students and trespassers. Specific Objective:
To automate the entrance security system of students entering the campus; 2.
To allow security guards to retrieve a student's status whether enrolled or not; 3.
To let the security guards distinguish a student from a trespasser. 1.4 Hypothesis
From the early data that has been gathered, the developer is able to conduct the study that the current school security is done manually and now requires automation.
On the data that will be gathered from different sources, the developer will be able to come up to an intelligent guess that the creation of the proposed Barcode Enabled Entrance System, or BEES, will be probable and that its development will be beneficial to the whole college campus of Our Lady of Perpetual Succor College, OLOPSC. 1.5 Statement of the Problem
Specifically, this study aims to answer the following:
What are the common problems encountered with the existing manual system of entrance...
