Case Study
Pay Roll System Every organisation big or small employs employees and gives them salary. Salary is paid on a monthly basis. Maximum organisations have automated their system but they are still facing numerous problems. Study the Payroll system of your organisation, if not possible then study the Amity School of Distance Learning Payroll and Remuneration system and prepare the following: Task 1 : Carry out the feasibility study.

Task 2 : Prepare the cost benefit report. Task 3 : Prepare the draft Assignment - Brief. Task 4 : Analyse the existing problem. Task 5 : Prepare the algorithm and code the programs. Task 6 : Design the database. Task 7 : Present the system.

Assignment - C
State True or False 1. A structure chart is a sequential representation of program design. 2. A feasibility study generally culminates in deciding whether to proceed further or not. 3. In a logical DFD, the flows are restricted to show the movement of data only. 4. System maintenance is a part of the high cycle of an Information system. 5. Screen formats and report layouts need not have the concurrence of the users. 6. Data flow diagrams are useful in representing the decision process in the system. 7. Data flow diagrams are drawn only as a part of a system design document and have no relevance at the stage of system analysis. 8. In decision tables, for each rule, there can be more than one condition being true. 9. Feasibility study should always be carried out before embarking on system analysis and design. 10. Only a programmer can conduct a system study. 11. When a file has both random and sequential processing requirements, index sequential file is the best choice. 12. The real time system is also a particular case of an on line system. 13. Sequential files are slower than indexed files in all situations.

14. Indexed files can also have more than one index key. 15. Data store reflects a Data structure at rest however, data flow is a data �a structure in motion. 16. Data flow diagrams do contain decision tree. 17. Data stores collect only temporary data. 18. Indexed sequential file organisation combines the advantages of sequential and direct files. 19. A sequential file is one in which the records are stored in some sequence. 20. Output refers to the results and information that are generated by the system. 21. A parallel run involves two different terminals accessing a common database. 22. On line data entry will avoid all data errors. 23. System implementation should begin only after system acceptance. 24. Parallel runs should be used for system acceptance. 25. If various modules have been tested thoroughly the need for time for carrying inventory is reduced. 26. Systems development can cease after proto-typing. 27. Unit testing tests the programs making up the system. 28. Greater risk is associated with a pilot approach than with a parallel approach. 29. An airline reservation system is a batch processing system. 30. Pro-typing of a large software helps in identifying and defining requirement before design. Select the correct answer 31. The first step in systems development life cycle is: (a). Preliminary investigation and design (b). System design (c). Database design (d). None of the above

32. To which phase, of SDLC, is file conversion related? (a). System Analysis (b). System design (c). System implementation (d). None of the above 33. Documentation is prepared at the time of (a). Commencing the study (b). At every stage (c). Completion of the design (d). Completion of implementation 34. Structured programming involves: (a). Functional modularization (b). Localization of errors (c). Decentralization of program (d). All of the above 35. Which of the following appropriately explains the desirable characteristics of a good system design? (a). Modular approach (b). Proper documentation (c). Either (a) or (b) (d). Both (I) and (ii) 36. Which of the following is not a tool for application proto-typing? (a). Third generation language (b). Report generator (c). Screen generator (d). Application generator 37. The records in a file on magnetic tape (a). Have to be arranged in a key sequence (b). Can only be accessed serially (c). One for backup (d). Can not be transferred to disk file 38. Which of the following is not considered a tool at the system design phase? (a). Data Flow Diagram (b). Decision table (c). System flow chart (d). Pie chart 39. In Proto-typing the following are used: (a). Screen generator (b). Input generator

(c). Application generator (d). All the above 40. Following does not form part of inventory system: (a). ABC Analysis (b). Reorder level (c). Employee ma ster (d). All of the above Assignments Solved By: DistPub.com
