Systems Analysis & Design NJ June 2010 Final © NCC Education 2010 Introduction This assignment will allow you to demonstrate an understanding of the modelling of a data-driven system. You will analyse and design a system for a hostelling association that provides budget holiday accommodation in your country, primarily for young adults, many of whom will have travelled from abroad. The system you design will include a prototype user interface for the new system. Scenario The National Hostelling Association (NHA) provides budget holiday accommodation in cities and tourist destinations throughout your country. It currently has 40 hostels of varying sizes that can accommodate between 10 and 40 guests at any one time. Currently customers book beds in a hostel by telephoning the individual hostel directly. The manager in each hostel keeps paper records of bookings, free beds and payments taken. Records of the bookings and money received are posted to head office on a monthly basis. The NHA wishes to centralise its bed booking into a single national booking office where all bookings will be taken by telephone. This will release staff in hostels to carry out their main domestic duties and also centralise the payment of booking fees thus simplifying the association’s accounting procedures. In order to manage this centralised process the NHA requires a new IT system. This system is required to record bookings, search for free beds on a particular date, record payments made, etc. When a new booking is made an e-mail will be automatically sent to the relevant hostel giving the name of the guest, date of the first night they are staying and the number of nights they are staying. The central booking office requires a system consisting of six workstations, all of them for staff use, which should also run general office software. The key elements of the bed booking software for the new system are: The ability to record bed bookings in real-time including customer name, hostel name, start date, number of nights and amount paid. The system should not allow a booking to be made if there are no free beds in the hostel. A search facility to allow the booking staff to find available beds based upon a number of criteria such as location, number of nights, date, etc. The ability to record customer details so that they can be targeted with special offers or contacted in the case of problems with their booking. The ability to create aggregate financial records of bookings. Initially the system will only be operational in the booking office. If the system is successful, future plans include connecting each hostel to the system so local staff can make bookings for customers. Further development of the system may include a website that allows association members to book their own accommodation via the association’s website.
