Proposal of Purchase & Store Management System (PSMS) for BCMCL

System Analysis of Purchase and Store Management System
At present, BCMCL inventory operations are done manually by the user. For keeping a track of the equipments ordered, received & delivered to specific indent. Records of the customers, stock information, roll out information and customer invoicing information etc. is also maintained in this system. This system in general reveals all information on type of equipments ordered for specific indent, record of equipments which are received based on what was ordered, order processing details for e.g.details of indenting, purchase order & the equipment dispatch details, scarp information, KARDEX information, Product consumption report in period basis, Product specification, product drawing, shipment details, lead time, MRP(Material Receiving Report), estimation, supplier performance report, Market analysis report and invoicing details based on each indent.

All these information are vital for the company. The reports are also included to this system on each transaction made. The reports are to be also made manually by the user which is a very tedious task. In addition, they had to enter all the details of raw materials into the tables to get to a conclusion whenever needed.

Moreover, in order to get a clear conclusion the user had to make reports on each and every category of the equipment, which means creating different individual reports for that particular category. In the existing system, the user also had to make entriesin as many tables as possible. If any modification is to be made, it becomes tedious and cumbersome process, which takes a lot of time and energy.

Drawbacks of Existing System
The system is manual and very tedious to maintain and make reports since a the data ll are stored in document form/files/registers. And being an organization where all the details have to be kept confidential and so maintaining them will be very risky. And to get the details of an indents or a particular indent like PO, dispatch, supplier, or equipment details, we have to search through the entire files and registers to get that particular detail. The following are the lists of drawbacks:

‡ ‡ ‡ ‡ ‡ ‡ ‡ ‡ ‡

All are written document. The data stored in the document are not reliable. Reports are not sufficient and are very complex. Redundancy (Unstructured, Unnecessary, Mixed etc.) of data. Storing and retrieval of information is time consuming. Verification of data is tedious. Large volume of data cannot be maintained efficiently. Maintaining all the record in an orderly manner is a difficult task. Since all the details are stored in files & registers, which are not computerized, it occupies a voluminous area.

‡

It is difficult to manually search for a particular item to obtain information about them.

‡ ‡ ‡

Slow responding of the information registers. Very difficult to verify the stock label. And many more important quarries would very difficult to be made and sometimes it is impossible.

Developing Solution Strategies
The proposed system is completely menu driven. Input screens are properly arranged & designed in such a way that the user does not feel complicated at any stage of using this system. Therefore it is very easy for the end users to work with such a system. Data fields are in the normalized form thereby avoiding data redundancy.

Implementation Procedure
MTechnology is designing a Purchase & Store Management System (PSMS) for BCMCL. It requires an enormous effort in preliminary requirement specification and design before the actual software development starts. We divide the implementation into the following definite phase. ‡ ‡ ‡ ‡ ‡ ‡ ‡ ‡ ‡ Requirement Specification System Architectural Design Object Design Module Development Integration System Testing and Trial Run User and Administrative Training System Signoff Maintenance (OP)

Requirement Specification
In this phase a team from both the client and vendor will carry out a detail study on the exact procedure and requirement of the entire system. The goals of this phase will be to extract ‡ ‡ ‡ ‡ ‡ Processes related to the system Entities related to the system Interaction among processes and entities Desired interface between processes and entities Desired management output requirement

3. Client Server Installation
The client-server model has become one of the central ideas of network computing. Most business applications being written today use the client-server model so as PSMS. Server was another computer that can participate in a client/server network, as opposed to a peer-to-peer network. A server is used to hold resources and items that other computers would need:

In most cases, a client-server architecture enables the roles and responsibilities of a computing system to be distributed among several independent computers that are known to each other only through a network. This creates an additional advantage to this architecture: greater ease of maintenance. For example, it is possible to replace, repair, upgrade, or even relocate a server while its clients remain both unaware and unaffected by that change. This independence from change is also referred to as encapsulation. All the data is stored on the servers, which generally have far greater security controls than most clients. Servers can better control access and resources, to guarantee that only those clients with the appropriate permissions may access and change data. Since data storage is centralized, updates to that data are far easier to administer than what would be possible under a P2P paradigm. Under P2P architecture, data updates may need to be distributed and applied to each "peer" in the network, which is both time-consuming and error-prone, as there can be thousands or even millions of peers. Many mature client-server technologies are already available which were designed to ensure security, 'friendliness' of the user interface, and ease of use. It functions with multiple different clients of different capabilities.
