Objectives of the Study


The study attempts to develop and introduction a system in
Samar State University that seeks to assist the said university in
attaining more effective, fast and effortless in term of registering of
data.
Specifically the following objectives will be pursued:
1. To develop a system that performs the following functions:
1.1

Track the technical problem being reported by

department; and
5

1.2

Give the corresponding response on the technical

problem reported.
2. To develop a system that is:
2.1

accurate;

2.2

reliable; and

2.3

secured

3. To test the effectiveness and acceptability of the proposed


system.
Assumptions of the Study
Upon making the research based on the researchers findings
and observation of the trouble reporting within SSU,1.)the researchers
assume that the creation of proposed system will help improve the
existing manual procedure of troubleshooting/fixing the problem on
computer units being reported by the department or office in the said
university. 2.)they also assume that the system will provide a fast,
accurate and effective result of checking and giving the necessary
actions that are needed to fix the problem. However, the proposed
system could help a lot mainly to the authorized personnel or the
technician to ensure that he can respond quickly and effectively on
customer inquiries and problems, and in order to classify, identify and
handle a problem within a set of time.
Methodology

This part contains the procedures or methods used in the


development of the proposed Samar State University Trouble Ticket
System, Catbalogan Samar. The researchers chose the appropriate
approach to evaluate the system. The prototype where in the original
form of something, which has the essential features and is the model
for subsequent forms.
In developing the system, the method that being used by the
researchers for their study was the Prototype Approach. The proponent
finds the method which is very applicable for their study. The method
was used in order to reduce the plan or concepts to a set of
specifications that describes new or modified system. This is going to
be reviewed by the end-user and repeatedly revise to create a final
model. The Prototype Approach consists of several steps, the Logical
design, Prototype Design, End-user testing, Prototype revision and Final
design.
Summary of Findings
The following were the results of finding of the study obtained by
the researches based on testing and evaluation of the system.
1.

There

were

20

respondents

composed

of

heads

of

departments/ offices and other personnel, but we retrieve the


questionnaires only 20 were returned.

2. The grand mean on the extend of the system with regards to


accuracy as

perceived

by the

respondents

is

4.4

which

interpreted as highly effective.


3. The grand mean on the extend of the system with regards to
reliability as perceived by the respondents is 4.42 which
interpreted as highly effective.
4. The grand mean on the extend of the system with regards to
security as perceived by the respondents is 4.45 which
interpreted as highly effective.

Conclusions
The

following

conclusions

were

formulated

by

the

researchers based on the above stated findings:


1. The use of Samar State University Trouble Ticket system highly
effective in terms of accuracy.
2. The use of Samar State University Trouble Ticket system is
highly effective in terms of reliability.
3. The of Samar State University Trouble Ticket system is highly
effective in terms of security
Recommendations
Based on the findings and conclusions of the study, the following
measures are hereby recommendation:
8

1. The IT Facilitator who is the primary user of the system (Samar


State University Trouble Ticket system) must assign other assistant
technician who has the skill to facilitate and maintain the system.
2. If the Samar State University wants to adapt the usability of
the system; the assigned head technician or assistant technicians must
do the necessary actions specifically for the urgent or important
reports from the clients.
3. The users of the system must undergo orientation related to
the utilization of the develop software.
4. This study will serve as guide for the future researchers.
