DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION OF A COMPUTER BASED NATIONAL IDENTITY-CARD PROCESSING SYSTEM

Diploma

ABSTRACT 

          This project is aimed at improving a long lasting processing system on identity card. It is also aimed at keeping records of all identity card processing with view of modify it into a few Computer system.

          The study covers the area of application entry, record verification list generation, code number and maintenance of the managed information. The new system developed is very easy to use and gives answers to report generation. Problems, which evolved from the existing system as a result of implemented. During the analysis examination of written documents, oral interviews as well as textbooks, journals will be used for data collection and also a source of information. Also, it is expected that a program will be produced in order to help the students process and also document identity cards with references to the rapid growth in the information technology, it is necessary to develop a fully identity cards processing system through this project.   


                           BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

          “The traveler has to knock at every alien door to come to his own and one has to wander through all the outer world to come to the inner most at the end” (Tagore…)

          Man as a wanderer, is not settled with what he sees on what surrounds him. Unless he moves round the world knowing fully well that the world is a spherical shaped object. He sis not satisfied with what he has, unless he sees other superior objects on being. Therefore, in a bid to satisfy the mind or conscience on what they desire, men tend to know more as a stronger apart from his country home. The storage after all journey or may be at a later age tries to speak either in writing or orally his adventures either to his descendants or hiss friends, relations and neighbours. New man, (year of publication) says “I may be accused of laying stress on letter things, of being based, the mark of going into impediment or ridiculous details, of sounding my own praise, if giving scandal; but this is a case above all others, in which I am bound to follow my own light and to speak out my heart”.

          Also, man in a bid to create awareness of running for his dear life, paying visits to friends, engagement in business transactions leaves his geographical area, it is necessary to been a mark. Mark her does not really means facial mark rather an identity showing your name, country, every single information about you and also purpose of your visit. This therefore boils down to what we know as identity card.

          The question is “What is identity card” As defined by author surname (year). It is a national document certifying nationality issued by the government of a country, to a citizen intending to travel abroad from the definition, identity card can also be called a true image of an individual, because it tells well about a person coming into a country. Citizens in a country have the right to apply for issuance of an international passport. There is a need for the maintenance and processing of students records in order to maintain current data concerning an individual in the institute of management and technology Enugu, the unit, which takes the responsibility of producing an identity card for student, has many sections.

          The identity card processing unit has different sections such as:

(a)     Registration unit

(b)     Passport section

(c)      Documentation section

(d)     Printing section

                             STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM

          The identity card processing system is not an easy task. The reason is because it involves networking all the computers in that organization and as well as to present forgery and avoid the dangers of duplication of multiple passports for one particular person. The system in question can also depict how lose a tight the security department is change of the passports section.

          Scanning through for a with definite information can be a tedious and time wasting work because of the large volumes of record to be scanned. Also, to change a particular information may be as a result of marriage, change of name and loss of passport in other words known, as update is also a tag of war for the individual in charge. It is also a big task detecting who and who were given or issued with a passport thereby creating space for duplication of passport and for a person. It results to weariness and loss of dedication to duties by the staff.
