Revised : 10/14/2017 Page 1 Fall17 CS6400: Tools-4-Rent! Overview: A hypothetical national chain of tool rental stores, Tools-4-Rent! , has decided to try out a new online tools rental service for its Customer s. They’ve already done an informal survey of their regular rental Customers and determined that the majority of them would be interested in online inventory and reservation services. At the same time, Tools-4-Rent! has decided to upgrade their entire paper record based tools rental service to improve efficiency in tracking a larger inventory. Your job is to develop the information management system that supports some of the services involved in the tools rental service. Tools-4-Rent! has decided that each store will have its own isolated instance of the online application. Tool Organization: Updated v3 : The Tools-4-Rent! service will have 4 types of tools available for rental: Hand Tools, Garden Tools, Ladders, and Power Tools. Hand tools include items such as wrenches, sockets, screwdrivers, hammers, etc. Garden tools include digging tools, pruning tools, rakes, wheelbarrows, and striking tools. Ladders include straight and step. Power Tools include drills, saws, sanders, mixers, etc. Tools are also described by 4 power sources: 110-240 Volt A/C electric (corded), 7.2-80.0 Volt D/C cordless ( battery powered), gas- powered, and manual (no motor). Each tool type is further described by a sub-option. A full list of tool types/sub-types/options teams are required to use for this project is shown in updated Appendix 1. Each instance of tool will have a unique ‘tool -number for p1 (‘tool_id’ surrogate for p2/p3) assigned to it. Update v4: changes regarding v4 are OPTIONAL for teams for p2 and p3 submissions. Project design assumptions: Power Tools may run only on: gas, electric, or cordless power sources. All Garden Tools, Ladders, and Hand Tools are considered ‘manual - powered’. Note (v3): some Power Tool sub-types may have multiple power-sources. Each tool instance (regardless of type) will only run on a single power source. Teams will probably be wondering about the difference between a “Power Tool” and a “Garden Tool”. For this project, we will assume any tool related to outside for landscaping work is a manually powered Garden Tool. Any artificially powered (A/C, D/C, Gas) tool which is presumably used indoors for construction will be considered a Power Tool. An example tool hierarchy is shown below with multiple sub-types: Gardening Tool: (type) + Manual: (power-source) Digger (sub-type) UI header short-description = “ Scoop Shovel Digger o Scoop Shovel: (sub-option) full-description : “[dimensions]+ [weight]+[sub-option]+[sub- type]+ […other descriptors…]+[manufacturer]” Power Tool: (type) + Cordless: (power-source) Drill (sub-type) UI header short-description = “ Cordless Hammer Drill o Hammer: (sub-option) full-description : [dimensions]+[weight]+[power-src]+[sub-option]+[sub-type]+[*- ratings]+[manufacturer]” Power Tool Accessories: Tool accessories are unique to Power Tools and must be listed separately (e.g. drill bits, hose, gas tank, hard case, safety wear, etc.) and

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
