Chapter I

Introduction:

A. History of the Business: Jirahs Junkshop The Business, as claimed by the owner, started when her grandfather has a friend whom invited him to try operating a Junk Shop. They started a partnership agreement in the business. As time goes by, however her grandfather decided to establish a business of his own, so he left the partnership and embarked to start his own Junk shop. The business was a success it enabled the grandfather to support all of his children with their academic and domestic needs, as well as have much leftover for some luxuries.

The Grandfather decided to pass down his technique in running a respectable junkshop to his children, who the owner is, obviously, and as the grandfather grew old, weak and frail, he was no longer fit to run the junkshop so the children took over his stead.

B. Corporate Goal: VISION: To perpetuate the business with profitable outcome as well as provide sufficient employment for the least notice sector of the Philippine society, to give not only income to the owners family but as well as income to those below the poverty line as much as possible to propagate development even in a minor scale.

MISSION: As Filipino citizens to respectively aid our government by providing the right and sufficient amount of tax as it is the inherent responsibility of any business. As a Business to provide service both to sellers and buyers of all sectors and all classes and that provides income for both employer, employee and customer. As well as keep the quality of the product at top-notch condition for a satisfactory feedback. As Human beings to show that there is profit even in the presence of junk and scraps by providing innovative and profitable ways of dealing with the former and the latter by different procedures of refining and selling of the products with best quality as possible.

C. Services/Products: We mainly derived our products from the many collectors of scraps and junks that sells their gathered resources in our humble operating location, send out foraging workers to get resources or we simply bid to buy a structure that may be demolished for its materials. Our Product ranges to almost all Kinds of Metals, Plastic, Fabrics and even expired food, within reasonable condition, which we re-process or refine to provide a fresh block of the said products, except for the latter, which is food. Such examples of Metal Products we provide are: Copper Bronze Steel Iron Platinum

D. Scope of the Proposed Information System: The current business has no Database at all, or rather have a very primitive form of database such as receipts or books. Our proposed Database will encompass most operations such as the list of companies/customers, provides the lists of sale representatives, products and as well as provide a order list. The respective Tables will have valuable information as example of the products list, it will show the corresponding profit, price and cost of a product. We envision that it will be a stepping stone to their business to further develop and make it more prosperous. It will enable them to update, add, delete, modify and monitor their business with ease.

Chapter II
Current Database Management System
A. Data Storage and Retrieval The business is currently using, they even pertain to it as not even a database primitive form database, which is the book-written form, whereas the bulk of their information are stored within the confines of a ledger, journal or even a receipt. B. Data security The security of database is quite vulnerable considering it is based purely on paper which are susceptible to modification or deletion by unauthorized personnel. It is also kept it books or receipts which are mainly kept in folders or cabinets which are very open to foreign hands.

C. Database Maintenance It is a tedious and manual process whereas they will gather their records, even with a chronological order of recording it is still a time consuming and meticulous process, whereas the slightest mistake may lead to the downfall of the business.

Problems encountered with the current Database Base Management System. With a paper-based, very primitive in our technological advancing world, type of database it is very vulnerable to all kinds of dangers. The main problem for the business was losing a sensitive record, whereas they would always keep a copy that will take up space and even add more meticulous and tedious work on updating. Data redundancy is no stranger; there have been countless encounters with it. There have been claims that an entire folder comprise one, and only one, document of the same exact kind. Security also is a big deterrent to a harmonious and efficient business. It is quite vulnerable to modifications by unauthorized personnel. Its merely a pen or pencil mark away that can lead to the downfall of the business. There is also the problem of sabotaging or records that mysteriously disappeared. There is also a problem of accessing and retrieving needed data with ease and efficiency. The paper-based system, with all its worth, is bulky and gives the paper work guys a mountain to climb, literally. It makes work that is to be easy and fast into something tedious and time consuming. Along with accessing; Updating, Recording, Modifying, Deleting and Monitoring records is a very time consuming and hard form of process, manually shifting papers to and fro which can lead to misconceptions and miscommunications which are not advised in any meticulous and sensitive cases. All problems are easily countered by a simply computer database system that will not only stop the stated problems but will make the business more efficient and more user friendly especially to the new employees.

Chapter III
Proposed Database Management System
A. Description of Proposed Database It is a simple, yet very innovative evolution, kind of database that shows the list of customers, sales representative, products, and current orders. It also provides different queries that will answer the most common questions that may arise in the business as well as provide various forms, for both customer and employees concern and discretion. It harnesses also the ability to provide not only receipts, as proof of order; designated in a order form, but also reports of various needed, common, accounts such as a printed list of sales representatives.

B. Definition of the Tables The First table is the Customers Table which has the following fields: Customer ID: This is the unique identifier of the table, as well as the customers unique identification from others and the foreign key in other tables. Company Name: This is the name of the company of the client. Country: The country or place where the company is stationed.

Sales Representative ID: This represents sales representative, a foreign key and primary key of another table. Basically this encompasses the basic and information in a Customer list. The next table is the Orders Table which has the following fields: Order ID: This is the unique identifier of the table as well as a foreign key in other tables, this provides a unique identifier for every order. Order Date: Simply displays when the order was given. Product Ordered: It is a foreign key, and a primary key of another table, which merely represent the product bought or wanted by the customer.

Chapter IV
Conclusion and Recommendation
A. Conclusion We highly believe that with our database upgrade that the business will further prosper and expand in terms of productivity, organization and even efficiency. We believe that it will pave the way not only for the physical but also in the integral improvement of the business. This Database will be highly useful to the business as it is a long step from the paper to digital organization. Especially with the added queries, forms and reports it will be a much for employee-friendly environment as well as customer friendly service interface. It solves every single Database problem they had with their previous one, and even added some new features.

B. Recommendation We recommend to use, and if possible further improve their database capabilities, the database to its fullest extent to the benefit of the business. We also recommend to train their employees with proper usage, even with basic or fundamental knowledge, on how operating a database. They should still also keep a handful of hard-copies in case of any unforeseen technical difficulties that may occur, which are highly slim in chance, to at least keep data integrity at the minimum. Finally we recommend that they continue their operations with the new arsenal of business tools they have gain for the benefit of our country, our fellowman and our Lord.

What you thought was fun: The whole experience was fun. Organizing and Planning was my favorite parts. It was fairly hard at first, bickering on what business should we take up as our paradigm. As we accomplished this, taking in mind the hardship and setbacks that we encountered, the feeling of success is much sweeter. What was your role: I, although moderate myself, took the responsibility of being the leader of the group. I organized and make the decisions that are imperative for the groups progress and influential also to the success. I do however take up the role Jack-of-the-trade also if circumstances warrant it, as I take up the role of being a Mentor or guide in terms of creating the graphical representations of the table such as the forms and reports. What have you learned: The world is growing more and more into the Star-wars age. Business and people alike need to inculcate technology within their perspective and very lives. We thrive, as well as almost all business, on the ease of operations that technology gives. Databases are indeed cornerstones of business
