System Analysis is a detailed study of the various operations performed by a system and their relationships within and outside of the system. Here the key question is- what all problems exist in the present system? What must be done to solve the problem? Analysis begins when a user or manager begins a study of the program using existing system.
During analysis, data collected on the various files, decision points and transactions handled by the present system. The commonly used tools in the system are Data Flow Diagram, interviews, etc. Training, experience and common sense are required for collection of relevant information needed to develop the system. The success of the system depends largely on how clearly the problem is defined, thoroughly investigated and properly carried out through the choice of solution. A good analysis model should provide not only the mechanisms of problem understanding but also the frame work of the solution. Thus it should be studied thoroughly by collecting data about the system. Then the proposed system should be analyzed thoroughly in accordance with the needs.
System analysis can be categorized into four parts.
* System planning and initial investigation
* Information Gathering
* Applying analysis tools for structured analysis
* Feasibility study
* Cost/ Benefit analysis.
In the current system we need to keep a number of records related to the student and want to enter the details of the student and the marks manually. In this system only the teacher or the school authority views the mark of the student and they want to enter the details of the student. This is time consuming and has much cost.
In our proposed system we have the provision for adding the details of the students by themselves. So the overhead of the school authorities and the teachers is become less. Another advantage of the system is that it is very easy to edit the details of the...
