Project Description

Title of the project:

DVD rental system (“Rentals 4 u”)

Problem Definition:

“Rentals 4 u” is a company which provides DVD rentals to local customers. The current system requires customers to write down their personal details on paper including the date of DVD rental and return. This information is then stored under the owner’s desk for future reference in a file.

Problems with the current system include:

• Paper based system prone to errors such as human errors when entering customer contact details

• The file can be easily destroyed in a fire

• Can be easily manipulated

• Easy to misplace

• Customers can repeatedly return DVDs late

• Difficult to manage stock I.e. DVDs can be lost

• Manager can forget to ask for Proof of address and I.D

Proposed IS (Aims & Objectives):

The proposed IS will:

• Provide an easy to use interface to store customer data

• Allow staff to add/edit/delete customer and DVD data as well as user accounts

• Produce reports based on DVD rentals such as most popular rentals

• Send email reminders to customers

• Provide a blacklist function to ensure users who constantly return DVDs late are recorded

• Search stock and track rentals

• Ensure customer identification and proof of address is provided upon rental

The IS will be developed using Visual Basic and Microsoft Access.
