Technology plays vital role in innovation. Over the years we have seen technology to evolve like a child burgeons into adulthood. Without technology, life would be more difficult than it already is. We are now living in a world which is technologically civilized, where almost all human activities involve the use of technology and every person wants to be recognized with a device or gadget which is technically advanced.
Nowadays, computer serves an important part when it comes to basic day to day processes conducted in our community. It allows a user to accomplish tasks or things and it also enables the user to create a more accurate and reliable output.
Information system has two categories which is manually or Computer Based Information System (CBIS). Before CBIS, data were done manually. This manual process is called non-computerized system. Meaning all the information were written and stored in cabinet files. Non-computerized is not efficient because searching for a certain information is time consuming and it is confusing. To eliminate this problem, a system is created known as Computerized System or CBIS. Computer Based Information System (CBIS) is efficient because users will just have to input data which the CBIS will process and kept in storage such as a database.
Manual system is a system that involves data processing which does not make use of database system or stored program computing equipment. As of now, The H.O Abalos Builders Inc. uses a traditional manual system. The head of the human resource department said the Corporation still uses first generation manual system in recording data and salary computation with the use of tools such as pens, pencils and papers to record important documents to be stored in a filing cabinet.
The proposed system will be using Barcode based technology
Barcode technology works of off a principle called symbology. Symbology at its basic form is what defines the barcode; it determines the mapping and interpretation of the encoded information or data. This encoding allows the scanning device to know when a digit or character starts and when it stops, similar to a binary representation. We recognize barcodes as an array of parallel lines alternating between white and black lines. Barcode technology provides a simple and inexpensive method of recording data or information in a number of applications. Barcode is an optical machine readable representation of data relating to the object to which it is attached. Originally barcodes systematically represented data by varying the widths and spacing’s of parallel lines, it may be referred to as a linear or one-dimensional (1D)
By using Barcode technology the management will benefit from the following: 1. Time Savers – Think back to the ways of doing inventory. The task involved a lot of manpower and number-crunching, not to mention the fact that it was tedious with a nice margin for making mistakes. Enter the barcode and barcode scanners. Now with the fraction of manpower and the scan of a barcode, inventory is a breeze. Instead of having to physically log everything in by hand, the barcode contains all the information. All that is needed is a simple scan of a barcode and that information is translated into a computer. 2. Increased Efficiency – Human beings are not infallible, so therefore, mistakes can be made when recording information and tracking other items like inventory and expenses. 3. Smoother Internal Operations – There are always a system of checks and balances for every business to ensure that rules is followed – both internally and externally with various governing bodies. For instance, a business must account for every asset to the IRS. Companies can spend hundreds of man hours every year or use bar codes on their assets to keep track of them. In addition, when internal operations run more smoothly, then their way of conducting business with customers runs smoothly too. 4....
