THE DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION OF NYSC ORIENTATION CAMP INFORMATION SYSTEM


Content

ABSTRACT

This  Project  Design and  Implementation of  Orientation Camp  Information System (A Case Study of NYSC Orientation Camp Awgu ) was designed to eliminate  the  problems associated  with manual  handling  of information at the  Orientation  Camp  such  as:  data  redundancy,  time  wastage  etc.  The Design  and  Implementation  was carried  out  using  the  top  down  software development  approach.  The tools used to implement this project are VB.Net and SQL Server.

CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

1.1     BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

The national youth service corps (NYSC) is an organization set by the Nigerian government to involve the country’s graduates in the development of the country. There is no military conscription in  Nigeria,  but  since  1973  graduates  of  universities  and  later polytechnics have been required to take part in the national youth service  corps  (NYSC)  program  for  one  year.  This is known as national service year, corps members are posted to cities far from their city of origin. They are expected to mix with people of other tribes, social and family backgrounds, to learn   the culture of the indigenes in the place they are posted   to. This action is aimed to bring  about  unity  in  the  country  and  to  help  youth  appreciate other ethnic  groups.  There is an orientation period of approximately three weeks spent in a camp away from family and friends. After the orientation process corps members are posted to the areas of primary assignment. There is also a passing out ceremony at the end of the year. The program has also helped in creating entry level jobs for a lot of Nigerian youths. An NYSC forum dedicated to NYSC members was recently built to bridge the gap amongst members serving across Nigeria and also serves as an avenue for corps members to share job information and career resources as well as get loans from the national directorates of employment.

1.2     STATEMENT OF PROBLEMS

The NYSC is faced with the following problems due to their manual method of handling information:

·        Poor handling of corps members’ information

·         Time wastage in searching for information

·        Data redundancy

 

1.3     OBJECTIVES OF THE PROJECT

The objectives of this project are as follows:

·        To design an information system that makes data access easy for corps members.

·        To design a system that can automatically post corps members to their areas of primary assignment.

·        To design a system that can help the NYSC management to supervise corps members. 

 

1.4     JUSTIFICATION OF THE STUDY

The good reason why this project is done is to provide an efficient method of handling corps members’ data at the orientation.

 

1.5     SCOPE OF THE STUDY

This project covers the design and implementation of information system for the NYSC orientation camp (A case study of Awgu)

 

1.6     PROJECT REPORT ORGANIZATION

The project is organized as follows:

Chapter one of this project reports gives the detailed introduction of the project. Chapter two gives a review of the related literature.

Chapter three covers the methodology, data collection, analysis of existing system, limitation of the existing system, system design, the database design, system flowchart and the top down design.

Chapter four covers implementation, testing and integration.

Chapter five  gives  the  summary,  limitations  of  the project,  recommendation,  bill  of  engineering  measurement  and evaluation (BEME) and conclusion.
