Introduction This chapter gives a brief theoretical preview upon the database information systems and goes through the essence of the problem that should be resolved. The process of constructing such kind of systems is not so simple.1 below: Information System Dbase Queries U S E R S Retrieve Insert Application Program DBMS Database Update Database System Delete i Page 5 . maintain and control access to the database. The basic idea can be depicted on Figure 1. The application program is actually the bridge between the users and the database. and DBMS as a software system allowing the users to define. 1. It involves a mutual development of application program and database. Thus.1. flexibility and functionality of the system. create. the well-developed application program and database are very important for the reliability.1 Background Most of the contemporary Information systems are based on the Database technology as a collection of logically related data. The so defined systems differentiate to each other and their development comprises a great variety of tasks to be resolved and implemented. where the data is stored.

This system uses employee management software that helps in assembling. can be increased through better Information Systems. etc. A particular case is the Human Resources Information System development.Information system suggests a computer technology to be used in order to provide information to users in an organization (for instance). It keeps the records of the functions performed by the individual employee playing a vital role at the time of performance appraisal. their management pays a major role in deciding the success of the organization. employee monitoring. management of the time sheet. but every organization that requires managing of their HR needs or workforce. 1. which is crucial to staying competitive. computer hardware and software are designed and used [2]. It makes easy to monitor the workings of the employees and manage them. organizing and managing the information of the employees as required by you. centralized employee database. so we design customized employee information management system that could fit into your company¶s requirement frame. Productivity. Page 6 . as for the purposes of data transformation into useful information. or Management Information System (MIS) that provides decision-oriented information to managers.2 Purpose Employees are the backbone of any company.´ [2]. Employee management software can carry out many functions like employee data analysis. and so on« ³Organizations depend on Information Systems in order to stay competitive. Every organization has different employee management issues to be addressed. Employee management software makes easy for the employer to keep a track and check on the human resource department just by a click of the mouse from anywhere in the world thus making the work extremely easy for people having offices at different locations. Such kind of system could be integrated with other Information systems or modules: Accounting Information System (AIS) ± designed to transform financial data into information. This kind of systems are responsible for storing data of the staff within an organization and generating reports upon request. Employee information management helps in deciding the future management needs and any changes that has to be made for greater productivity. Our ³QUEUE´ suggests employee management system is not solely for big companies. Our ³QUEUE(our group name)´ understands this fact and therefore designed a unique and 100% functional employee management system.

Exploring the available development environments and techniques. The database should be designed and implemented in a way that the user would expect it to be. a graphical representation of this stuff is needed in order to enable the user to interact with the data. This is more or less optional and individual process.2 Programming Environments The given task concerns a small company (organization).At the very commencement. Database Analyzing. I decided to use the Access Database Environment as a Database Management System and C# as a programming language for developing my project. Before proceeding to the explanatory notes of how I have developed the software. For instance. but for the needs of a larger one. The point is to choose such an environment that we will be able to operate with in a convenient and easy way.

Database Analyzing It concerns all of the demands. 3. put upon the database content and its functionality. Tests To ensure that everything works properly and as it has been expected. test performance has to be done upon the system¶s functionality. Program¶s Structure Analyzing The application program as an interface between the users and the database should be an accurate ³reflection´ of the database on the screen. Bringing all the stuff together (controls data binding and functions implementation). we could use one set of tools. it would be much better if we apply our approach by using some different. 5. 2. Each one of these steps could be explained in some brief details as follows: 1. Tests. GUI (Graphical User Interface) constructing. 7. Exploring the available development environments and techniques There is a lot of programming environments available to be used for such kind of elaborations. that depends on the developer¶s experience as well. Database design and Implementation. Database design and Implementation This step is tightly related with the previous one as it is completely determined by the requirements. 4. I proceeded to a decision to carry out the development of my task into the following steps: 1. 5. 6. 4. 3. for the needs of a small company. hence a well analyzed and defined structure is needed. Bringing all the stuff together The next step that should be taken is connecting the program with the database and performing the necessary functionality upon all of the controls. 3. 2. 7.

we historically reach to the second phase of the Database systems evolution ± the File-based systems. for safety.

The database is the skeleton and the underlying framework of most of the contemporary Information Systems. is that each Department in an organization (for instance) has an access to its own data (files) through application programs. the needs of the contemporary industrial world could not be covered or satisfied by using such kind of systems. and takes additional storage space.

The evolution of the Database systems could be divided into three phases: the Manual-filing System. or employee and they are usually labeled and stored in one or more cabinets. This kind of systems had been developed in response to the needs and demands of industry for a more efficient data access [1].Data Duplication: It is undesirable as it costs time and money.

and the keys into its child tables are called foreign keys. the Database and the Database Management System (DBMS) have been created. One of the mostly used relationships is the (one-to-many) type. then let us assume that the relationship between the parent table and the child tables is of type (one-to-many). The DBMS is a really powerful set of tools. My Page 18 .. Updating. in particular with the C# as a programming language.Dependency of Data: That¶s a kind of inconvenience as the physical structure and storage of the data files and records are defined in the application code. Deleting and Retrieving data. (one-to-one) and (many-to-many). It means that every single record from the parent table could have several records into each one of its related child tables. If we have a main table (so called Parent table) and some other obedient tables (so called Child tables). The main window-frame of MS-Access can be seen on Figure 1 (Appendix A). enabling users to operate easily with data into a database as: Inserting. The DBMS also restores the data in case of hardware or software failure and reduces the loss of data in this way.Data Isolation: It is some difficult to access data. The whole information is stored in separate tables in one file. isolated in separate files. Most of the contemporary systems are based on the Database technology as a collection of logically related data and the DBMS as a software system allowing the users to define. It prevents unauthorized access to the database and maintains the consistency of the stored data. These conclusions are based on a theory in [3]. retrieving and storing data. forms. and search or retrieve by using queries. The primary and the foreign key have the same unique value.Incompatibility of the file formats: It concerns the file structure as a dependent on the programming language. and speeds up processing as well. . create.

The key into the parent table is called primary key. o After taking a new and more effective approach. queries. macros) for manipulating. The tables are related by their key-values. maintain and control access to the Database. Such an information arrangement is more or less convenient as we can view. The term ³Database´ comprises collection of objects (tables. pages. in which one the application program has been developed and implemented. There are three relationships between the tables in a database: (one-to-many). That leads to a less redundancy of data and reduces the required disk storage space. .Net Framework: For the purposes of my project I chose to work with Visual Studio of Microsoft. C# and the . It is a very good advantage that the information (data) can be populated in different tables (related to each other) and it is not necessary to store all data into one table. as the file¶s structure is embedded in the application program.

Contact Person Information. for this purpose h the necessary primary and foreign keys should be defined into the responding tables. Each employee of the staff is intended to have several records. related to each other. and his current working record. There will be one main ws_From_Date_Mont table (parent table) and five child tables.

It is easy to be performed by changing the Allow Zero Length setting . if we take a look to the Time Information data table ± an employee may have several records in case he has some experience within the current company. that can be left blank.supposed to have not only one record of his Working history. The primary key fields could be set to Auto-number data type as Access creates these values in an ascending order to ensure that they are unique within a table. Contact Person Information and Holiday Information data tables. Some of the fields should be ³adjusted´ to accept null-values. It is just needed to go to the desired field that has to be set. those ones. It is quite important to be done as it is tightly related to the input fields of the application program. I decided to perform it in the following way: those fields that are compulsory to be filled by the user I have set not to accept any null-values of data and on the other hand. are set to accept null-values. The relationships between the data tables are shown below In this Figure we can distinguish six tables that the database consists of.

application program should be constructed and implemented in some programming environment to enable the users to communicate with the database. offered into the ³Allow Zero Length´ field. Graphical User Interface (GUI) is intended to be built up as a basic structure of the program. available in the program. buttons«etc. Combo Boxes. concerning the whole process of GUI development. A set of controls is used in order to reach the desired purpose. what concerns the functionality of the application. Saving new employee¶s records: The whole process comprises a few actions. Text boxes. Tab controls etc. The list of all properties and methods for all controls is called Application Programming Interface (API). 3. The first general advice when constructing GUIs is to ³know thy users´ as there is a large number of rules and requirements. but not all of them are compulsory to be accomplished at once! First of all. Every GUI consists of certain number of controls (text-boxes. to unlock the fields Page 23 .). including Labels.5.19 Updating records scheme 3.4 Program¶s Structure Analyzing and GUI Constructing After getting the database prepared.2 Saving data into the database This kind of operation upon the database is subdivided into two groups: Saving a new employee¶s records (Populating all of the tables with data) and Add a record to an employee¶s data records. Figure 2. Group Boxes. Panels. are fitted to the corresponding forms that are used in the application. All of these controls. Data Grid. comboboxes. Buttons.two options.

and to be able to perform a successful save into the database. we need to specify to which employee (person) from the parent table. or go back and fill them in. Afterwards. we have the primary key. which ones hold the data for the parent table into the database. the primary key¶s value is taken and put into the child table where we want to save the current record. filled till the moment. The next approach has been made up to resolve the saving problem: Firstly. To implement this in code. but this value is also needed for proceeding to another (child) table and populate it with data as the DBMS needs to know the responding record into the parent table! Apparently. we can go to the desired form and fill the required data in. the current record we are trying to save. we need to fill in all of the fields required there! Of course. It¶s not necessary to fill in all of the forms with an exception of the two first. a few functions have been constructed (one for each child table and one for establishing the connection between the parent and the child tables). which one is the Employee_ID_Number. Afterwards. When data is saved into the parent table.17. it is known that the primary key values in all tables are automatically generated by saving a record as they have been set to an AutoNumber type. The whole process can be graphically represented on Figure 2.: Page 24 .in order to get them prepared for accepting new data. if not all of the rest forms are populated with data. we go to the child table and save the record there. it could be done in the following way: When a record is populated into the parent table and we try to save another one into a child table. the (³Add Employee´) button has to be clicked. a message appears on screen asking the user whether he would like to proceed anyway saving only the data. belongs to. As it concerns all child tables into the database.

Into the code ± snippet on Figure 20 it can be seen that if we have the sufficient information for the parent table. Primary_Key_Value. checking whether all of the required fields have been filled correctly. called by clicking upon the ³Save All´ button. Page 25 . only one of them is going to be shown All of these functions use the Get_Connection(Table_Name. ID) methods. These Boolean variables are passed to an array and initialized with the values returned by functions. which ones are very essential for the purposes. then we can save it « Plus performing save operations and upon those of the child tables. the responding save functions are called and the data is saved into the database.17 Saving records scheme Some details are going to be given about the functions. It firstly calls a set of functions. they have been constructed. and if not then a message pops up on the screen showing where there is insufficient information and whether we can proceed saving the data or not. which relative fields on the form contain the sufficient and necessary information for this purpose.Figure 2. We can see how and the other functions operate. operating with the database. Afterwards. All of this stuff is really useless without the functions. ID) and Get_Primary_Key(Table_Name. The values of these functions actually determine into which table we can save records and into which ± not. For simplicity. and whether we can save records at the moment at all. checking the information of the fields.

to be updated at once. One thing should always be taken into an account when we deal with records-updating: We need to know the primary key¶s value of the current record that we would like to get updated by the system.Figure 2.3. Two cases have been considered: _ Update All: It means.5. The program doesn¶t allow the user to update not existing records or records where insufficient information has been detected! This process of updating data could be depicted as follows . as in other way a rather different record would be updated. performed upon a database. for instance) and after that we need to press the ³Update All´ button.19: _ Update Single Records into the database: This can be performed by clicking the ³Update a Record´ button . all of the records into the database. but not compulsory. is less or more essential as it is tightly related to the ³Edit´.20: Page 26 .Figure 2.3 Updating records into the database This operation.and ³Refresh´-modes of operating with data. For this purpose. all of the fields on the forms to be filled in with data (edited data. concerning a certain employee. it is desirable.

concerning all records-updating. These functions go through the child tables and when all data gets deleted. performed upon the database. ySingle Record Deletion: means that only the current record we want to delete. we firstly need to delete consequently all of his records into the child tables and then proceed to the parent table. The result is instantly reflected into the database and back into the program as well. but before proceeding to this final action we have to ensure that all of his records into the child tables are fully erased. shall be removed from the database. is subdivided into two parts: Single Records Deletion and All Records Deletion.20 Updating a record into the database The click-event calls the same update-functions as such as they were shown in the figures. the DBMS will not allow any data into the parent table to be deleted! I made up as simple approach as it was possible: I have constructed a delete function for every single child table. For this purpose.4 Deleting data from the database This kind of operation. yAll Records Deletion: To perform successfully this kind of operation upon the whole data of an employee. Deleting a single record from the database means moving to a certain child table. existing into the database. Each ³Update a Record´ button calls the appropriate function.5. There is a bit difference between performing single record deletion into the child tables and performing a delete operation upon the whole amount of records of an employee. Otherwise. erasing all of the records of the selected employee. In the second case we need to delete the employee¶s record into the parent table as well. Both parts concern only single employee¶s data into the database. selecting the record we want to be deleted and press the ³Delete a Record´ button. responding to a certain data table 3. we can use the functional buttons. is called as last. related to a record in each data table. Page 27 . a function.Figure 2. erasing the record into the parent table.

functionality and performance on all levels in its structure. That¶s why the development of such systems is not just a programming business ± a lot of people are ordinarily involved in such projects and one of the basic requirements is the reliability of the system. The report¶s content comprises the whole task solution. Apparently. consequently taken during the project¶s development course as a particular attention was turned to the basic operative functions performed upon the data into the database. Every organization. has the necessity of managing its staff on a really good level as the staff has definitely the greatest merit of building up a company as such as it is. the role of such systems is basic and essential within each company that wants to keep a really good control and record concerning its personnel data. the application¶s analyze and construction. in nowadays. The wellmanaged staff means giving the appropriate financial award-ness and all kind of benefits as such as they have been deserved. and finishing with the code-implementation and test-samples. Conclusion In this report. going through the database. especially what concerns a pay-roll module. Page 28 .4. It was emphasized on the basic steps. shown separately in Appendix chapters. some additional stuff could be implemented and integrated into the application code making it much more reliable and flexible. starting from the programming environments have been selected. for instance. As a future work. especially what concerns the storage of data and all of the operations that will be performed upon it. an information system¶s development has been presented.
