GUIDELINES IN CONSTRUCTING THE CONTENT OF MANUSCRIPT SECTIONS

INTRODUCTION
This part discusses the prevailing factors why the study is conducted. The discussion shall be done in deductive approach (global, national, and local). Commence the introduction with a general scenario encompassing the existence of the needs for the study. Then, discuss the trends and situations how the need/issue is addressed in international scene (e.g. foreign countries, universities, companies, developers, etc.). After that, discuss the trend in the national scene (Philippines). For the local, discuss the situation of the client/target beneficiary, their current approach to the problem/situation and why there is a need in conducting your study.

Statement of the Problem (Based on Business Needs)
Provide an interview-based scenario of the problem in paragraph form. The problem statement should be italicized and in interrogative form immediately following the scenario. Example:
In our country most of the visually impaired people do not know how to use computer. Many of them have jobs but their doing it manually. Blind people are not able to use computer because of their condition. How to provide the blind people trainings on how to use a computer? (See Appendix C for Fishbone Diagram)

Importance of the Study
It discusses the gains that can be acquired by the system’s intended beneficiaries (e.g. company, university, students, researchers, future researchers, etc.) * In paragraph form
Objectives of the Study
Since you are working with a technical/developmental thesis, objectives are often based on System Development Life Cycle.
Present the general objective, then list down the specific objectives in numbered list. Time and Place of the Study
This encompasses the actions taken in conceptualizing the study. Discuss the specific places and dates of various universities/institutions visited, interviews conducted, conceptualizing the study title, title proposal, and outline preparation. Also, state the date that the project is expected to finish.

Scope and Limitations (Based on Use Case and Business Requirements)
It discusses the focus of the system being developed, the level of access in the system and the modules and features contained in the system. * In paragraph form
Definition of Terms
It provides the definition of terms based on how they are used in the study. Example:

Braille. A form written language for the blind, in which characters are represented bypatterns of dots that are felt using the fingertips.

REVIEW OF RELATED LITERATURE AND STUDIES
Provide a brief introductory paragraph for this chapter
Related Literatures
Present a review of the following:
Nature of your system (e.g. E-Learning, SIS, CMS, LMS, DSS, etc.)
Programming languages, databases and software to be used (e.g. PHP, ASP.net, MySQL, MSSQL, Adobe Dreamweaver, MS Visual Studio, etc.)
Methodology (e.g. Prototyping, Spiral, Incremental, etc.)
System Modeling (e.g. Use-Case, CFD, DFD, Fishbone, etc.)
* Synthesis shall be stated in the end of your review of related literature. * Observe the RECENCY of the literatures. Minimum of five literatures.

Related Studies
It discusses the various studies/thesis reviewed for the system development. Discussion of each study...
