I. Background of the Project
a. History of the Project
Before the development of the project, “Onet”(see Appendices A: proposed logo), we observed that the need for vast source of information, socialization trends and technology exposure is indeed high due to insufficiency in the number of available computer services. To be able to fill these insufficiencies, we plan to make a business project that compliments to the latter problem. The objectives of the business project are: * To create a sustainable business project addressing the needs of the immediate consumers in computer-related services. * To have a competitive distinction against current competitors by emphasizing accessibility, convenience and affordability. * To engaged into actualization of Operation Management principles through application of the said principles in real situation, as partial fulfillment of the subject requirements.

The facility of the school doesn’t have sufficient tools to provide these demands.
We also consider the factor of accessibility of the available computer services (our competitors) near the school premise. Students often walk outside the school to rent computer service; the time spent in walking is very
