Our project “entitled Design and implementation of automated Billing system for supermarket” (using Maris Supermarket Owerri Imo State as our case Study), which uses manual mode of operation.

The supermarket has been experiencing so many difficulties with this mode of operation; which includes;

Lots of paperwork: Existing system uses so many papers and even a small transaction require many papers to fill.

Secondly; Difficulty in reports generation. Either no reports generation in a current system or they are generated with great difficulty; reports take time to generate in the current system.

Finally, the project is to computerize the Front Office Management of the supermarket to develop software which is user friendly, simple, fast, and cost – effective.

1.1 Introduction

The project billing system is an application to automate the process of ordering and billing of a Departmental store.

This web based application is designed considering the chain of departmental store which is located in various cities. This application also administrates its users and customers.

The goal of any system development is to develop and implement the system cost effectively; user-friendly and most suited to the user’s analysis is the heart of the process.

The project is based on the concept of RDBMS (i.e. Relational Database Management System), a database which store data in the form of tables which is related with each other in a particular manner.

5.0 Summary, Conclusion and Recommendation

5.1 Summary

This project was designed by Emmanuel Faith Favour and Asiagha Ugochukwu M, submitted to the Department of Computer Science Federal Polytechnic Nekede, Owerri in partial fulfillment of the award of Ordinary National Diploma (OND) in computer science.

This project Design and Implementation of automated Billing System, was designed to eliminate the difficulties encountered by the supermarket (Maris Supermarket) in so many ways. The area in which the automation focuses its attention is in the area of billing and storage of goods.

5.2 Conclusion

The DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION OF AUTOMATED BILLING SYSTEM is a great improvement over the manual system using case fields and paper. The computerization of the system has sped up the process. In the current system, the front office managing is very slow. The supermarket management was thoroughly checked and tested with dummy data and thus is found to be very reliable.

5.3 Recommendation

We suggest that the management of Maris Supermarket should realize that the automation of her billing system today and the future prospects its promises. They should make all effort to promote the rapid development of infrastructure services, automated billing system and its contents.

In addition, the supermarket should imbibed in the use of the software. They should encourage the development of the billing system that will promote the social and economic activities in Nigeria.

Finally, they should encourage other sectors to embark on the automation of their billing system to enhanced economic activities in such sector or organization.
