6. Limitations of the Project
A software is a product that can never be said to be prefect or hundred percent accurate and there is always room for improvement.
The proposed automated system works well with the WINDOWS operating system and would fail to work if at all the operating system is changed to LINUX or some other because this system is based on GUI and WIN32 API functions which could only be available with the WINDOWS based suites.Another limitation is that it fails to work in an environment of distributed systems. It is designed to work for an organization with only one branch. It cannot be used for an organization with several branches at various sites.
7.Tools/Platforms, Language used
The hardware used in the system is as follows:
o CPU: Intel Pentium 233 MHz or equivalent
o Support for a communications adapter
o CD-ROM drive
o SVGA or better display resolution
o Mouse or pointing device and keyboard
o Memory requirements: 128 MB Minimum, 256 MB Recommended
o Disk space requirements: 75 MB
o Windows NT Workstation or Server Version 4.0 with Service Pack 3 or later
o Windows 95
o Windows 98
o Windows 2000 Professional, Server, or Advanced Server
o SQL server
o Visual basic 6.0
The reason this configuration has been used is that the software developed has a GUI (Graphical User interface) which requires a good hardware configuration. The Database has been made in SQL server because the SQL server is capable of handling a large sized database.
It is robust and efficient and acts like a good backend.
8. Are you doing the system for industry /client?
