Design and Implementation of Export Shipping System with a Study of the Requirements and Life-Cycle
The Export Shipping System is focused primarily on upgrading the manual system currently used for tracking export orders and inventory in the shipping department at Square D Company. It consists of a group of program modules which facilitate the receipt, shipment, and associated paperwork involved in the processing of export orders from the time they reach the shipping department through the invoice and subsequent accounting reports. This paper describes the project and the associated software implemented. This description analyzes the project development life-cycle and compares it with the alternative software development life-cycles, as described in the literature in order to identify strengths and weaknesses of the method used in the Export Shipping System. Finally, it will give some afterthoughts about the project development to guide future project development.
