Software assistant for management tasks in a fish farm
MetadataShow full item record
Software is often created to automate some business processes a company develops and performs manually for a period of years. Developing such software products has many challenges. For one, the customer may be unaware of the software artifacts such as databases, requirements and design documents. In short, customers may only be able to use an executable given to them. Also, adoption of a new automated system can be hard for those customers who are accustomed to a routine process that they have used for several years. To make the transition from a manual process to using a software assistant easier and acceptable, the software system must be user friendly and must have close resemblance to the old processes as much as possible without sacrificing efficiency. This report discusses the design and development of a software package to automate many related business processes for a small fish hatchery and how each of the challenges mentioned above were successfully met. The report explains the details of the manual processes previously handled by the fish hatchery and what among those processes have been automated by the software package.
