ABSTRACT
A computerized apparel management system will be designed for Anum Enterprises, Sahiwal. The purpose of this research work, is to design and implement computerized apparel management system. The existing manual apparel system is very slow in data processing and information retrieval. It is extremely difficult to handle a large amount of data manually and achieve valuable results. Through computerization such sort of problems can be overcome and reliable results can be obtained. The computerized apparel management system will give a number of facilities to Insert, Delete, Edit, Save and modify the record in the user-friendly and GUI (Graphical User Interface) environment. With the help of proposed system, the unexpected mistakes will be minimized and the chance of error will be eliminated. Using Relational Database i.e. Oracle®.

NEED FOR THE PROJECT

The production department of Anum Enterprises is currently doing everything manually. The perceived system will provide a user-friendly environment. Graphical User interface will be used. System will be based on the Relational Database Management System (RDBMS). Apparel Management System will have the capable to generating all kinds of reports related to apparel system. It will include all the steps from daily purchase order wise to order wise manufacturing cost. Latest technology will be utilized to develop this system with more flexibility, reliability and performance.

THE OBJECTIVES OF THE PROPOSED SYSTEM The perceived system includes: • • • • • • • Multi User. User Friendly. Not data redundancy. Data concurrency. Order history current/previous. Prompt, efficient and more productive. Proper controlling mechanism and apparel reports availability.

Requirements of (Production Team)

o To control the production. o To keep the record of the daily purchase order wise production, finishing and packing status. o To decrease the rejection rate by watching operation wise status. o To keep the record of workers wages. o To keep the record of packing list. o To keep the record of Fabric and other accessories. o Back tracing system. o Worker wise efficiency report. o Order wise manufacturing report.

QUERIES INVOLVED IN THE SYSTEM The success of any system totally based on the collection of raw data/input. The current system is manual so it is very difficult to maintain the apparel records . The following Reports which to be automatically , generated are: • • • •

Order wise Fabric /Accessories Required Report. Order wise Fabric / Accessories Received Report. Worker wise Payment Report. Date wise Payment Report.

• Order wise Payment Report. SOFTWARE REQUIREMENT:

Operating System • • Window 2000 server (Server). Window Professional 2000 / 98 / NT 4.0 (WKS).

System Software • ORACLE 8i, DEVELOPER 6i.

HARWARE RECOMMENDATION: Server • • • • • • RAM 256 MB. Hard Disk Minimum 10GB. Network Card 10 / 100 PCI. IBM Compatible P-III with speed more than 500 MHz. UPS. Best Quality Colored Display Device.

Workstation • • • • • • RAM 64 MB. Hard Disk Minimum 5 GB. Network Card 10 / 100 PCI. IBM Compatible P-II with minimum speed 300MHz. UPS. Best Quality Colored Display Device.

REVIEW OF LITERATURE Atre (2000) stated that following trade-off have to be taken. • Design a conceptual model of a database. (i) (ii) (iii) Data Analysis Existing Application Potential Application

• Design a logical model of a database. • Design a physical model of a database. • Evaluate the physical model of a database. • Implement the database. Bayross (2000) stated that for a successfully design and maintain database we have the following: 1. Identify which part of world's data is of interest to us. 2. Identify what specific objects in the part of the world's data are of interest to us. 3. Identify a relationship between .the objects. Elias (2000) gave the following criteria for the selection of the software: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. Function ability Flexibility Security Performance Service ability Minimal cost

Hoffer (2001) explained two generic database architecture: 1. Centralized databases 2. Distributed databases Inmon (2002) described the basic database design components of Oracle® as: 1. 2. 3. The column The row The table

While the components of secondary importance are: 1. 2. 3. The table s The segment. The database

Keen (2003) recommended the following steps for the progressive testing: 1. 2. 3. Model Testing Suit Testing System Testing

Rosaleen (2003) stated that all Oracle® products use SQL as the access route To the data. Following are the rules for writing valid SQL commands: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. SQL commands may be one or many commands. Causes are usually placed on separate lines. Tabulation can be used. Commands words cannot be split. SQL commands are not case sensitive.

6.

An SQL command is entered at the SQL prompt and subsequent tines are numbered. This is called SQL buffer.

Skidmore and Wore (2000) defined the system as set of related components that work together to fulfill a purpose. The process of studying a system involves; how the customer's demands are found, and how to deliver the product that meets their needs within reasonable budge and schedule. This is called system life cycle which include following phases: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Preliminary Investigation (Determine the problem) System Analysis (Understand the existing system) Design (Plan the new view) Development (Do the work to bring the new system into being) Implementation (Convert to the new system)

Vesta (2001) described the advantages of database as: 1. 2. 3. 4. Data Independence Redundant data Data integrity Economy of Scale

Weldon(2001) stated the Following Function of the DBA for Planning the Database

1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6.

Preliminary database planning Identiflng user requirements Developing user requirements Designing the logical model Choosing a DBMS Developing the physical model

PROCEDURES The main objective of the project is to develop and implement a Computerized Apparel Management System for Marium Enterprises, Faisalabad. They have a manual apparel management system, which is very slow in data processing and information retrieval. In that manual system, it is extremely difficult to control large amount of data and obtain valuable results. By this proposed system all such kinds of problems can be overcome and reliable results can be obtained. The user can insert ,delete ,edit , save and modify the record in a very friendly environment. With the help of proposed system, the unexpected mistakes will be minimized and the chances of errors will b eliminated. Different kinds of queries and reports can be obtained.
