BOOKSTORE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM

BMS helps the owner of the bookstore to manage books and also helps the user to search the books. It basically makes the task of the owner and user easier and faster in an automated fashion. Functions of BMS: Provides authorization to access database. Enables user to search books in the database. Provides all necessary information about books like edition, price number of copies, author name, category, etc. Keeps record of books available in the bookshop.

It is a system where all activities are performed with little or no machine intervention. To use this system each user has his own username and the password registered.User name is the name of the user and password is a unique alpha-numeric key.it maintains a secured databasefor recording the user's transaction details.Book store uses today's computer technology to give their customer the option of bypassing the time-consuming, paper based aspects of traditional banking in order to managethe transactions between the customers and the book store more quickly and efficiently. It is very user friendly and interactive, user feel more comfortable working with the services.Once registered user can adopt all the services offered by logging-in to the application withtheir user name and the password.A new user can also switch to this online form of Book store by registering with their details.

INTRODUCTION The "Book store management system" is to be developed using MS Access, which is a very convenient tool for designing and developing the software. The development of "Book store management system" facilitates the technology and business organizations to work hand in hand. The application has a fully integrated customer database. Customers aretypically busy; they travel a great deal and need access to the Book stores. It works very fast as compare to its' Corner branch stores.To utilize the services offered by the "Book store management system" user musthave the PC connected to Internet. "Book store management system is specially targeted for Retailers and distributors where customers can purchase books and pay the bills etc.V a r i o u s f a c t o r s r e s u l t t h e g r o w t h i n

O n l i n e s h o p p i n g , s u c h a s c o m p e t i t i v e c o s t , customer service, and demographic considerations - are motivating Book stores to evaluatetheir technology and assess their electronic commerce and Internet strategies.

Book store management system is divided into the following modules 1.Purchase 2.Sales 3.Customer 4.Employee 5.Authentication 6.Reports Purchase: In these module transactions such as placing an order for the books from other distributors is accomplished. Book store executive will look up the required books and canplace an order for them. Number of copies, author, title and price for each copy will be sentback by the book provider. Sales: This activity will store and maintain the information regarding the books which aresold. Sale as well as the mode of payment has to be specified such as credit or cash. Customer: Regular customers information will be made available instead of entering thedetails every time and hence avoiding redundancy. New customers information can also beadded easily. Employee: Employee's information that belongs to the Book store will be made available inthe database in a way to manipulate the employee tasks. Employee information includes nameof the employee, basic salary, age etc Authentication: User login and password are managed by this module. New user can register for their account, and existing user can change their passwords and manage their accounts. Reports: Output reports in the form of pages or in the form of c o m p u t e r f i l e s c a n b e generated whenever necessary. Getting reports is very easy using Computer Applications andis also very fast.

FEASIBILITY STUDY Feasibility studies aim to objectively and rationally uncover the strengths and weaknesses of the existing business or proposed venture, opportunities and threats as presented by the environment, the resources required to carry through, and ultimately the prospects for success.[1][2] In its simplest term, the two criteria to judge feasibility are cost required and value to be attained.[3] As such, a well-designed feasibility study should provide a historical background of the business or project, description of the product or service, accounting statements, details of the operations and management, marketing research and policies, financial data, legal requirements and tax obligations.[1] Generally, feasibility studies precede technical development and project implementation. Five common factors (TELOS) Technology and system feasibility The assessment is based on an outline design of system requirements in terms of Input, Processes, Output, Fields, Programs, and Procedures. This can be quantified in terms of volumes of data, trends, frequency of updating, etc. in order to estimate whether the new system will perform adequately or not. Technological feasibility is carried out to determine whether the company has the capability, in terms of software, hardware, personnel and expertise, to handle the completion of the project. When writing a feasibility report the following should be taken to consideration:

A brief description of the business The part of the business being examined The human and economic factor The possible solutions to the problems

At this level, the concern is whether the proposal is both technically and legally feasible (assuming moderate cost). [edit] Economic feasibility Economic analysis is the most frequently used method for evaluating the effectiveness of a new system. More commonly known as cost/benefit analysis, the procedure is to determine the benefits and savings that are expected from a candidate system and compare them with costs. If benefits outweigh costs, then the decision is made to design and implement the system. An entrepreneur must accurately weigh the cost versus benefits before taking an action. Cost-based study: It is important to identify cost and benefit factors, which can be categorized as follows: 1. Development costs; and 2. Operating costs. This is an analysis of the costs to be incurred in the system and the benefits derivable out of the system.

Time-based study: This is an analysis of the time required to achieve a return on investments. The future value of a project is also a factor.
Legal feasibility

Determines whether the proposed system conflicts with legal requirements, e.g. a data processing system must comply with the local Data Protection Acts. [edit] Operational feasibility Operational feasibility is a measure of how well a proposed system solves the problems, and takes advantage of the opportunities identified during scope definition and how it satisfies the requirements identified in the requirements analysis phase of system development.[4] [edit] Schedule feasibility A project will fail if it takes too long to be completed before it is useful. Typically this means estimating how long the system will take to develop, and if it can be completed in a given time period using some methods like payback period. Schedule feasibility is a measure of how reasonable the project timetable is. Given our technical expertise, are the project deadlines reasonable? Some projects are initiated with specific deadlines. You need to determine whether the deadlines are mandatory or desirable. [edit] Other feasibility factors [edit] Market and real estate feasibility Market Feasibility Study typically involves testing geographic locations for a real estate development project, and usually involves parcels of real estate land. Developers often conduct market studies to determine the best location within a jurisdiction, and to test alternative land uses for given parcels. Jurisdictions often require developers to complete feasibility studies before they will approve a permit application for retail, commercial, industrial, manufacturing, housing, office or mixeduse project. Market Feasibility takes into account the importance of the business in the selected area. [edit] Resource feasibility This involves questions such as how much time is available to build the new system, when it can be built, whether it interferes with normal business operations, type and amount of resources required, dependencies, [edit] Cultural feasibility In this stage, the project's alternatives are evaluated for their impact on the local and general culture. For example, environmental factors need to be considered and these factors are to be well known. Further an enterprise's own culture can clash with the results of the project. [edit] Financial feasibility In case of a new project,financial viability can be judged on the following parameters:

Total estimated cost of the project Financing of the project in terms of its capital structure, debt equity ratio and promoter's share of total cost

Existing investment by the promoter in any other business Projected cash flow and profitability

[edit] Output The feasibility study outputs the feasibility study report, a report detailing the evaluation criteria, the study findings, and the recommendations.[
