DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION OF AN AUTOMATED ASSET MANAGEMENT INFORMATION SYSTEM


DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION OF AN AUTOMATED ASSET MANAGEMENT INFORMATION SYSTEM

                                                            ABSTRACT:     

Asset management is crucial in order for it to realize its goals and objectives. There are challenges facing many company such as uncoordinated asset declaration processes that lead to duplication of records and data redundancy, delays in serving the company, too much paper work that consumes a lot of space, poor decision making on restocking assets declared, and inability to track assets already declared. The goal of this study is to address the above problems by designing and implementing aprototype Asset management system capable of asset registration, track asset declared, and asset stock control.

There is a need to computerize the asset declaration processes for companies in order to minimize corruption to the lowest level, realize that companies meet with their goals, control and monitor assets, keep track of assets holders and their assets.

The research achieved almost all the objectives set and the prototype designed could further be developed into a full working system that could be used by the company or any other business in their asset management. The strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats identified in this study could also be used to build on the company’s competence, boost its presence in the market, attract more customers, and thus realize the company goals and objectives.

CHAPTER ONE: INTRODUCTION

1.1.0   BACKGROUND OF STUDY

Asset management is a business discipline, which describes the management of technical infrastructure for business operation. Asset management entails managing company’s property and investment for people and company as well, using a more technical and result oriented approach with detail report and economic forecasting on finance and wages.  

Asset Management Software easily automates the whole process of asset management from asset documentation, stocks, hardware and software management, assigning asset to staff and managing categories as well. System users are created by the system admin where each staff is able to login in with the provided authorization and manageasset registered on the system.The admin has the sole authority over the system.

1.2.0                INTRODUCTION

Chapter one introduces the research work and the problem definition of the research, and to know the aim of this research work, research justification tells us why it is important to research on this topic; it also covers areas like scope and limitation of study which entails the boundary of this work. Definition of terms gives summarize what each chapter entails.

1.3.0   PROBLEM DEFINITION

    This research work was undertaken to uncover some of the problems with conventional Assetmanagement systems. Here asset manager manages several company and  persons, he/she achieve this by taking proper documentation and record keeping, these records grow with time and ease of use as well as retrieval of information becomes  tedious. Access to sensitive information or portfolio becomes grueling. Using these conventional method pose lots of constraint on managers has he/she has to move around with large files always to be able to have first-hand access to info on demand. These slow work process and affect rapid growth in an establishment.

1.4.0                  OBLECTIVE OF STUDY

               In view of the problems mentioned above, this project is aimed at implementing an asset management system which will exclusively:

⦁    Automate every asset manage by an individualor the firm.

⦁    Efficiently handling of asset files and secure channel through which asset will be store, sorted, updated and can be retrieved at all time.

1.5.0             RESEARCH JUSTIFICATION       

    This research work will provide a reliable way of handling Springlight asset effectively and eliminate the lag time in file recovery and also with an inclusion of a search engine to search system archives. Furthermore, it will aids structural document representation and eliminates the tedium of performing monotonous transaction. This research will also contribute to existing literature in this area and will serve as a guild or blueprint for an undergraduate student.

1.6.0         RESEARCH METHODOLOGY

        This research work “design and implementation of an interactive project management system” will be a web-based application and will be implemented on a relational database system(MySQL). Html(hypertext markup language), css(cascading style sheet) and Jquery will be used to design the web-user interface, php (hypertext preprocessor) will be used as the serve- side script language to link the interface and the database.

1.7.0                SCOPE AND LIMITATION OF STUDY   

This research work is to develop a system capable of handling all Springlight assetsboth software and hardware. The system will be able to add asset, manage asset category, add users to the system, delete asset that have been destroy, register asset vendors, assign asset to staff andmanage asset category, The system will also incorporate in its design a feedback layout.

The system will not incorporate in its development all the functions of an asset management system but will focus only on the aforementioned functionalities. The system will not be responsible for any loss of data if its environment (network/system installed on) is corrupt.

1.8.0        CHAPTER LAYOUT

This section  was  put in place to explain what each chapter does, chapter one introduces the project to the reader by explaining the problems the project is supposed to solve, objective of the study and research justification is to describe to the reader the purpose and the  importance of  researching on this topic, research methodology is all about the method used in implementing the research work, scope and limitation describes  the boundary of the research work and where the project work can be put into use.

        Chapter two deals with the literature review and state-of-the-art.This chapter discusses literature review, what people have published related to this research work and their shortcoming, how this present research can improve their shortcomings.

             Chapter three deals with the system design methodology i.e. collection of tools methods and practices for achieving a task; the requirement specification states the expectation of the system analysis, and design which is the blueprint of what the system would carry out.

                  Chapter four has to do with the implementation, system testing strategies, target computer system requirement, software maintenance etc.

                  Chapter five discusses the recommendations and conclusion part of the research work and how this work can be applied to the problem domain.
