The Project File Details
Decision making is a fundamental activity for managers. The intricacy of systems at present has aided the world optimistically and pessimistically notably in the straightforwardness of difficult task done by humans, also in automation of human life almost in everything done by human. Methods, systems and machine readable measures converts document fields into data element that aids posting, scheduling and management. Rules associated with the documents type are obtained or set and used to process the text field for the defined task example posting. This research work is a web based system designed with Microsoft Visual studio (ASP.Net) 2008 as its front end and Microsoft SQL management server studio 2005 as its back end.

Decision making (Decision from Latin decidere “to decide, determine, literally “to cut off,” from de- “off” and caedere “to cut”) can be regarded as the mental processes (cognitive process) resulting in the selection of a course of action among several alternative scenarios. Every decision making process produces a final choice. The output can be an action or an opinion of choice. Decision Support Systems (DSS) are a specific class of computerized information system that supports business and organizational decision-making activities.
A system, with numerous definitions can be literally seen in a computer way as a collection of the hardware and software components of a computer.
According to Stella C. Chiemeke and Franca A. Egbokdara (2006), a system is set of components that interact to achieve a common goal. In another sense, a system is a group of interrelated or intersecting elements forming a unified whole.
Ever since the advent of Computers in our society, a lot of criticisms have arisen on the danger it will pose on the society. Critics of this new technology express their fear on how this system will be displacing and replacing all human skills thus resulting to mass unemployment. However, further developments continue to prove the critics wrong as the invention continue to create additional jobs for those who identify themselves with the technology. Thus, computers are partners to human beings in any field of human endeavor.
In this enthralling world, the computer has served as an aid to decision making in recent years, mostly because of its efficiency in terms of speed, accuracy, reliability, cost and security, among others. In recent years, awareness has existed in people as it concerns the use of computers in planning areas of business activities. Organization have adopted the use of Management Information System (MIS) and Decision Support System (DSS) in their decision process which has advanced to web based human resources management systems on the platform of the Internet. Human Resources Management (HRM) involves the use of both quantitative (structured) and qualitative (unstructured) information.
According to Uzoka in Hampo, J.A. (2011), “Decisions are largely based on principles and experience. In recent times, efforts are being made to build intelligence into computer system, whereby the computer can be used to process large volume of structured and unstructured information for decision making.”
“An information system may be defined as a continuing and interacting structure of hardware, software, people and procedures to collect, sort, analyses evaluate and distribute pertinent, timely and accurate information for use by recipients to enhance better decision making.
An information system provides both a data processing capacity and information to help recipients make better decision. The information generated from these systems goes a long way to meet the need of people in a given organization as well as those outside the organization. Most recently, information systems have been developed to provide information to support decision making. This application is known as a Management Information System (MIS).
A management information system MIS is a formal information network using computers to provide management with information necessary for decision taking the fundamental objective of an MIS is to get the correct information to the appropriate manager at the right time.” (Source: Introduction to computer science and data processing, Apanapudor, J.S. et al)
1.2 STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM
Decision and management remain a paramount factor to successes or failures reached by individuals and organization. The problems associated with manual registration, decision, management and posting systems of which NYSC scheme in regards to posting of corp members to their PPA – Place of Primary Assignment; is not an exemption. Some of these problems are notably:
1.3 AIMS AND OBJECTIVES
The aim of the research is to examine the posting of National Youth Service Corp (NYSC) members to their PPA
The objectives are:
1.4 SIGNIFICANCE OF THE STUDY
This research work will be of great importance the NYSC Delta State as well as other states as it will save the schemes reputation and cost.
The scope of this research is centered on:
The scope of this research as well as the materials reviewed serves as limitation to this research. Also, time and financial constraints have limited this research.
A system study using related systems to the proposed system was carried out and their lapses were discovered. A feasibility study proceeded after the system study to determine if there are software, hardware and resources available to bring about a solution. System analysis followed, which included various fact finding techniques. The materials and literature review are utilized to the most advantageous.
|Fig. 1.1 THE SSADM APPROACH|
SSADM (Structured System Analysis and Design Methodology) approaches were applied. Meanwhile, relevant literature and authorities were referenced and reviewed. The Graphic User Interface (GUI) was design using Microsoft visual studio 2008, with ASP.NET as its programming language. SQL Server management studio 2005 was used as its database.
