PROJECT OVERVIEW

The insurance company needs to keep track of details of its target
companies, agents, policyholders, their premium payments and the various
products that are available with it. Hence it is under tremendous pressure
maintaining their dayto-day activities, which is currently being done
manually.

Entire records have to be updated timely, even a slight mistake could
complicate things. It is very difficult to handle bulk data since human
memory is weaker than electronic counter part. It is time consuming to
summarize these details to produce the reports. The Insurance management
system is a complete solution for organizations, which need to manage
insurance for resources avaliable. Organizes and tracks insurance vendors
and the policies provided under different coverage.

Hence there is need for an automated system, which can efficiently manage
the company, records, provides instant access and one that improves the
productivity. As a result of this automated system, the activities of the
company are performed with in the stipulated time and the reliable and
efficient service is ensured to its users.
SCOPE OF THE PROJECT

The transactions related to Life Insurance policies, premiums, policy
maturity, Agents management, Premium calculation , Agent locate, Branch
locator,Premium Calculation etc.,. transactions are done in an easy and
effective manner as most part of it is computerized and the manual labour of
entering transactions in ledger is not necessary

All these are to be automated and an application is required to relate all of
them relatively and logically so that the current system can be replaced and
accepted without major changes and problems.

The application should provide quick access to the records maintained and
must reveal the important reviews about the business so that the growth can
be easily compared and should provide with the various reports showing the
related details so that the important decisions could be taken easily.
Security of the stored information is achieved here. Only privileged
users can gain access to the stored information. Computers perform most of
the tasks and any information is made available at the users’ fingertips.
Storage of all the customer information and the transactions has been
computerized.
EXISTING SYSTEM

Existing Application does not help the Insurance Agents to Manage
Policy Transactions easily.

Existing Application does not helps the Agents to Monitor and perform
transaction easily.

In the Customer view, it does not provides the Customers with their
personal account through which they can perform the Transactions.

Manual maintenance of records

Very complex and manual calculation of policy premium

time consuming to summarize these details to produce the reports

Difficult to handle and manage bulk data.

Difficult to Organizes and tracks insurance and the policies provided
under different coverage
If customer requests for any clarification the person in charge has to
search through the written records and fetch the details regarding that
particular customer, which is time consuming and cumbersome.

Security of the information maintained is comparatively less.

Maintenance of the ledgers occupy large space
PROPOSED SYSTEM

a) Helps the Agents to maintain the details of all the Policy Holders
electronically.

b) This project helps the Customers to be aware of the dues and also the
previous payment details made for Updating Policy ,Policy Maturity,
Policy lapse, Policy renewal etc .

c) The application will provide quick access to the records for customer to
maintain and reveal the important reviews about the policies.

d) It provides for effective maintenance of records regarding customers,
regarding customers, transactions etc. Initially it may cost more but
proves to be cost effective in the long run.
e) Helps to Provide with the various reports showing the related details so
that the important decisions could be taken easily.

f) Application should provide quick access to the records
maintained and must reveal the important review

g) High Security to sensitive and important data

h) Automated Premium calculator

ABOUT SOFTWARE

Why Java is selected?

Java was designed to meet all the real world requirements with its key
features, which are explained in the following paragraphs:

Simple and powerful.

Java was designed to be easy for the professional programmers to learn
and use efficiently. Java makes itself simple by not having surprising features.
Since it exposes the internal working of the machine, the programmers can
perform his desired action without fear. Unlike other programming systems
that provide dozens of complicated ways to perform a simple task, Java
provides a small number

of clear ways to achieve a given task. Secure
Today everyone is worried about safety and security. Using Java
Compatible Browser, anyone can safety download applets without fear of viral
infections or malicious intent. Java achieves this protection by confining a Java
program to Java execution environment and by making it inaccessible to other
parts of the computer.

Portable.

In Java, the same mechanism that gives security helps in portability.
Many types of computers and operating systems are used throughout the
world and are connected to the Internet. For downloading programs through
different platforms connected o the Internet, some portable, executable ode
is needed. Java’s answer to these problems is its well-designed architecture.

Object-oriented.

Java was not designed to be source code compatible with any other
language. Java team gave a clean, usable, realistic approach to objects. The
object model in Java is simple and easy to extend, while simple types, such as
integers, are kept as high-performance non-objects. ust

Multithreaded.

Java was designed to meet the real-world requirements of creating
interactive, networked programs. To achieve this, Java supports
multithreaded programming, which allows user to write programs that
perform many function simultaneously.
The Java run-time system enables the user to construct smoothly running
interactive systems. Java’s easy-to-use approach to multithreading allows the
user to think about the specific behavior of his own program, not the
multitasking subsystem. The Java designers worked hard in attaining their
goal “ write once; run anywhere, anytime, forever” and as a result the Java
Virtual Machine was developed.

A main issue for the designers was that of code longevity and portability. One

of the main problems is the execution speed of the program. Since Java is

architecture-neutral it generates byte code that resembles machine code, and

are not specific to any processor SERVLETS:

A servlet is a web component, managed by a container that generates
dynamic content. Servlets are small, platform independent Java classes
compiled to an architecture neutral byte code that can be loaded dynamically
into and run by a web server. Servlets interact with web clients via a request
response paradigm implemented by the servlet container. This request-
response model is based on the behavior of the Hypertext Transfer Protocol
(HTTP).

The servlet container, in conjunction with a web server or application
server, provides the network services over which requests and responses are
set, decodes MIME based requests, and formats MIME based responses. A
servlet container also contains and manages servlets through their lifecycle.
A servlet container can either be built into a host web server or installed as an
add-on component to a Web
Server via that server’s native extension API. Servlet Containers can also be
built into or possibly installed into webenabled Application Servers. All servlet
containers must support HTTP as a protocol for requests and responses, but
may also support other request / response based protocols such as HTTPS
(HTTP over SSL). The minimum required version of the HTTP specification that
a container must implement is HTTP/1.0. It is strongly suggested that
containers implement the HTTP/1.1 specification as well.

A Servlet Container may place security restrictions on the environment
that a servlet can executed In a Java 2 Platform Standard Edition 1.2 (J2SE) or
Java 2 Platform Enterprise Edition 1.3 (J2EE) environment, these restrictions
should be placed using the permission architecture defined by Java 2
Platform. For example, high end application servers may limit certain action,
such as the creation of a Thread object, to insure that other components of
the container are not negatively impacted.

JAVA SERVER PAGES:
Java Server Pages™ technology is the Java™ technology in the J2EE platform
for building applications containing dynamic Web content such as HTML,
DHTML, XHTML and XML. The Java Server Pages technology enables the
authoring of Web pages that create dynamic content easily but with
maximum power and flexibility. The Java Server Pages technology provides a
textual description for the creation of a response from a request.
The JSP file extension is .jsp rather than .htm or .html. The JSP engine parses
the .jsp and creates a Java servlet source file. It then compiles the source file
into a class file, this is done the first time and this why the JSP is probably
slower the first time it is accessed. Any time after this the special compiled
servlet is executed and is therefore returns faster.

BENEFITS OF JSP:

Write Once, Run Anywhere™ properties
The Java Server Pages technology is platform independent, both in its
dynamic Web pages, Web servers, and its underlying server components.
You can author JSP pages on any platform, run them on any Web server or
Web enabled application server, and access them from any Web browser.
Separation of dynamic and static content
The Java Server Pages technology enables the separation of static
content from dynamic content that is inserted into the static template.

Support for scripting and actions

The Java Server Pages technology supports scripting elements as well
as actions. Actions permit the encapsulation of useful functionality in a
convenient form that can also be manipulated by tools; scripts provide a
mechanism to glue together this functionality in a per-page manner.

Web access layer for N-tier enterprise application architecture(s)

The Java Server Pages technology is an integral part of the Java 2
Platform Enterprise Edition (J2EE), which brings Java technology to enterprise
computing.
PROBLEM DEFINATION

The first step in an initial investigation is to define the problem that led the
user request. The problem must be state clearly, understood and agreed upon
by the user and the analyst. It must state the objectives the user is trying to
achieve and the result the user wants to see.

The System entitled “INSURANCE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM”, to be developed
is intended to be a Web based application to help users the easy and efficient
way of maintaining the records and the details of their reports and to provide
a Satisfied service to the quality controller.
The developed system should allow admin users to register agents persons
with their name, date of birth, residence address, and also policy details of
various costumers enrolled for policies avaliable. After registering all the
insured persons, website should provide management facilities like delete
unwanted data such as of agents, Insured persons, Policy details, insurers’ list
and also should provide awareness to the visitors about various insurance
through articles .
FEASIBILITY STUDY

Preliminary investigation examines project feasibility; the likelihood the
system will be useful to the organization. Feasibility report is the important
outcome of the preliminary investigation. There are three aspects of
feasibility study.

Operational feasibility:

There is lot of support from management; in fact they request it.
Because of the persons in the organization has been facing problems with the
existing system there is no resistance to the change. And also the current
methods are not acceptable to the users that are why they are welcoming to
the new system. From the beginning of this new system we made users to
involve in some way reducing the resistance. The new system will not cause
any problems in any way and also will show efficient performance in all
respects. By considering all these things the proposed new system is
operationally feasible.
Technical feasibility:
There is no technology and equipment to implement the new system
but it can be acquired. It is not a burden rather than that of existing system.
The proposed equipment can safely handle the data required to use the new
system. The proposed new system can easily be expanded to satisfy the new
requirements in future. There is lot of security, accuracy and reliability in the
new system rather than existing system. By considering the above reasons the
proposed new system is technically feasible.

Economic feasibility:

The cost to implement this new system includes cost of full systems
investigation, cost of hardware and software and the cost of user training. The
cost that may spend if the new system was not developed is greater than the
cost of the new system. The cost to implement the proposed system is one
time investment later they need not spent any more. The organization must
get benefit if they invest on the proposed system development. By
considering the above reasons the proposed new system is economically
feasible.

As this proposed system has passed all the three aspects of feasibility
study we can declare it as a feasible project.

SYSTEM ANALYSIS
System analysis provides major planning elements in preparation of data
processing system.

Analysis is detailed study of various operations performed by a system and their
relationships within and outside of the system and determining whether or not a
candidate system should conceder other related systems. During analysis, data are
collected on the available files, decision points and transactions handled by the
present system. Once an analysis is completed, the next step is to decide how the
problem might be solved.

System is a orderly grouping of independent components linked together
according to a plan to achieve a specific object. A system records and process data
then provides information from it. System analysis concerned with investigation,
analyzing, designing and evaluating the system.
The process of developing a computer based information system is a step-by-
step approach it begins with logical design and gradually moves to physical
design specific documentation associated with each step in the process, and
the output document of one step serves as input to the next step. The step in
system development is explained with their respective criteria. Once an
analysis is completed, the next step is to decide is problem might be solved.

SYSTEM DESIGN

The most creative and challenging phase of the system life cycle is system
design. The term design describes a final system and the process by which it
is developed. It refers to the technical specification that will be applied in
implementing the candidate system.

The main step in design is to determine how the output to be produced and in
what format.

System Design is multistep process that focuses on the data structure
software architecture procedural detail and interface between the models.
The design process also translates the requirements into the representation
of the software that can be accessed for quality before coding begins.

Computer software design is relatively easily in its evaluation. Therefore,
software methodology lacks the dependent flexibility and quantitative nature
that is normally associated with classical engineering design disciplines.

System design goes through three phases of development:-

1. Logical Design

2. Physical Design

3. Structural Design

1. Logical Design:

Logical design describes the inputs outputs databases and procedural all in a
format that meets user requirements.

When analyst prepares the logical system design, they specify the user needs
at a level of details that virtually determines the information flow into and out
of the system and the required data resources.

2. Physical System Design:

Physical design produces the working system by defining the design
specifications that tell the programmers exactly what the candidate system
must do. In turn, the programmer writes the necessary programs or modifies
the software package that accepts input from the user, performs the
necessary calculations through the existing file or data-base , produces the
report on a hard copy or displays it on the screen, and maintains an updated
data base at all the times.

3. Structural Design:

Structured design is a data-flow-based methodology. The approach begins
with a system specification that identifies input and outputs and describes the
functional aspects of the system. The system specifications then are used as
a basis for the graphic representation- data flow diagram (DFD). From the
DFD, the next step is the definition of modules and their relationships to one
another in a form called a structure chart, using a data dictionary and other
structured tools.

DATAFLOW DIAGRAMS Data Flow
Diagram :
The Data Flow Diagrams are commonly used during problem Analysis. A
DFD is very useful in understanding the system effectively. The DFD shows
the flow of data through a system.

Notations in the DFD :
Symbol Description
The circle or bubble represents a process. A process is named
and each process is represented by a named circle.
The source or sink is represented as a rectangular box. The
source or sink is the net originator or the consumer of the
data that flows in the system.
The arrow represents the flow of data through the system.
The labeled arrows enter or leave the bubbles.
The database is represented with the open box symbol

The need for multiple data flows i.e AND
* relationship by a process is represented by * between data flows.
+ The OR relationship between data flows is represented by +
between data flows.

ENTITY-RELATIONSHIP

An Entity – Relationship (ER) diagram is a specialized graphic that illustrates
the inter relationship between entities in a database. ER diagrams often
used symbols to represent three different types of information. They are :

Name Notation Description

An entity is single object about which data
can be stored it is the
Entity
“subject“ of a table. Entities and their
relationships are modelled
through the use of entity
relationship diagrams.

A relationship is a named collection
or association between entities or
Relationship
used to relate to two or more
entities with some common
attributes or meaningful interaction
between the objects.

An attribute is a single data item
related to a database object. The
Attributes
database schema associates one or
more attributes with each database
entity.

DATA BASE DESIGN
Database:

A Database is collection of related data, which can be of any size and
complexity. By using the concept of Database, we can easily store and
retrieve the data. The major purpose of a database is to provide the
information, which utilizes it with the information’s that the system
needs according to its own requirements.

Database Design:
Database design is done before building it to meet needs of end-users
within a given information-system that the database is intended to
support. The database design defines the needed data and data
structures that such a database comprises.

The database is physically implemented using MySQL.

MySQL is a relational database managements system (RDBMS) that
runs as a server providing multi-user access to a number of databases.

The database for Insurance System is organized into 7 tables:

SOFTWARE TESTING

This software product consist modules, Cultivation, Inventions, Marketing
and reports. All 3 modules have finite number of functions, for all modules
unit testing was carried out. Some errors were detected in the function,
which were solved efficiently. System testing was followed by this specific
set of data that was selected for the testing, with each test, test reports
were generated indicating the behavior of each unit.

TEST CASE DETAILS

Unit testing was carried on all units of “Computerization of manufacturing
pharmaceutical products “, below given are some test case details.
Test case Result

• When character is Please enter number
Entered in a number
Field

• When any data is Please fill all records Left blank

• When no record is there No record left to delete

UNIT TESTING

Unit testing is nothing but testing each module with both valid and invalid
data. Appropriate message will be displayed for invalid test case and result
is produced for the valid ones. Later individual functions were used put
together and made to behave properly gaining exact results.

Unit testing is the most important testing when considered with other forms of
testing.

INTEGRATED TESTING
After completing all sorts of test cases on all the forms they all are
integrated to form the result. This integrated testing was done with the
sample data .The need for performing a integrated testing is to find the
overall performance of the system.
BLACK BOX TESTING

Black box testing is done in order to some of the following types of errors

• Missing functions or an incorrect function.

• Interface error.

• Error in the external database access.

• Performance error

• Initialization error and Termination error.

WHITE BOX TESTING

White box testing is another type of testing technique used to find errors in a
application, using this white box testing the following test cases were
successfully tested to this project

• Checking weather all independent paths within the module have been
exercised at least once or not

• All conditions are executing or not

• Exercise internal data structure to ensure their validity All possible

validity checks are given or not.

CONCLUSION

A computerized insurance management system has been developed and the
system was tested with sample data.

The system results in regular timely preparations of required outputs. In
comparison with manual system the benefits under a computer system are
considerable in the saving of man power working hours and Effort.
Provision for addition , updation and deletion of customers is there in the
system .It is observed that proper filing system has been adopted for future
reference . The entire project runs on windows environments.

The system can be used to make better management described at
appropriate time. The user gets amount and timely information system.

SCOPE OF ENHANCEMENT

The system may be further updated or modified at will owing to its simple
structure. We can further add a transaction entity which will look
after the payments made by the customer towards their policy.
Depending on future requirements more changes can be made
owing to the organization’s need.
After finishing the requirements for phase-1 of the development the
remaining estimated modules will be developed. The following
enhancements may be added to the existing modules.

• Add new Administrators
• Enhancement of search options after completion of the pahse-2

These features are estimated depends upon the requirements of the client in
phase-2. So, these modifications require completion of the pahse-2
development of the project.
