COMPUTERIZED TAXI REGISTRATION SYSTEM

Undergraduate

INTRODUCTION

Initially in transportation sector and other organizations, internal reporting was produced manually and only periodically, as a by-product of the accounting system and with some additional statistics, and gave limited and delayed information on management performance. Data was organized manually according to the requirements and necessity of the organization. As computational technology developed, information began to be distinguished from data and systems were developed to produce and organize abstractions, summaries, relationships and generalizations based on the data at the disposal.

Early computer technology was used for simple operations such as tracking sales or payroll data, with little detail or structure. Over time, these computer applications became more complex, hardware storage capacities grew, and technologies improved for connecting previously isolated applications. As more and more data was stored and linked, managers sought greater detail as well as greater abstraction with the aim of creating entire management reports from the raw, stored data. The term "MIS" arose to describe such applications providing managers with information about sales, inventories, and other data that would help in managing the enterprise. Today, the term is used broadly in a number of contexts and includes (but is not limited to) decision support systemsresource and people management applications, enterprise resource planning (ERP), enterprise performance management (EPM), supply chain management (SCM), customer relationship management (CRM),project management and database retrieval applications.

The successful MIS supports a business's long range plans, providing reports based upon performance analysis in areas critical to those plans, with feedback loops that allow for titivation of every aspect of the enterprise, including recruitment and training regimens. MIS not only indicate how things are going, but why and where performance is failing to meet the plan. These reports include near-real-time performance of cost centers and projects with detail sufficient for individual accountability.


STATEMENT OF PROBLEMS

With the advances in information management, small and medium entrepreneurs must employ computer solutions to the daily running of their businesses. Hence the need to develop a computerized Taxi Registration system for Minna Taxi town services, this will enable record keeping for all the taxi and distributions to various activities in town service taxi, and it is very difficult to create an identification for each an every taxi in the town, to produce a number of taxi in the town any point in time is another problems of the taxi service Centre and it is also very difficult to deal with unforeseen problems in the organization.

     AIMS AND OBJECTIVES

The primary objectives of the research project are to design and implement computer program, which would assist Minna Taxi Town service in the registration record system processes.

          The objective for embarking on this project work is to find solution to the problems facing the Taxi Station in Minna in her Taxi registration system processes: -

1.       To develop a computer program which would help speed up the Taxi registration system process.

2.       To provide high storage capacity

3.       To eliminate duplication of data and hence improve integrity of data

4.       To provide adequate security for data

5.       To facilitates easy retrieval of stored data

6.       To allow generation of registration reports by an administrative user on a computer system

7.       To create an identification for each an every taxi in the town.

8.       To be able to produce a number of taxi in the town any point in time.

9.       To deal with unforeseen problems that arises anytime.
