Design And Implementation Of A Computerized Drug Verification And Management System

Computer Science Project Material with Source Code Included

Computer Science Project Material with Source Code Included


This project was centered on design and implementation of computerized drug verification and management system. The current process of verifying and managing drugs by NAFDAC is being operated manually and due to this procedure numerous problems are been encountered. This design was taken to computerize the manual process in order to check these problems. The problems were identified after series of interviews and examination of documents after which analysis was made and a computerized procedure recommended. This project will also suggest how to successfully implement the computerized procedure and to overcome the obstacle that would hinder the successful implementation of the system. The system was designed using PHP programming language. This language was chosen because of its easy syntax and features for developing web based applications.

1.0 General Introduction

Drug reporting and verification establishments like NAFDAC (National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control), require efficient and brilliant technique and flexible system for proper drug management. Their main objective is to ensure every fake drugs producing company are eliminated in Nigeria. In recent years, there has been a rapid growth in fake drugs incident which as claim a lot of lives in the country, this predicament has created the need to build an application that will address most of the issues address in this research work. This research work will be of paramount importance to these sectors as it will be design to address most of their challenges.

Drug reporting and verification Software easily automates the whole process of drug verification and reporting. Drugs Pharmaceutical Company are register on the system and verification code are generated for each drug production. System users are created by the system admin where each staff is able to login in with the provided authorization and manage his/her account. The system which will be made available to the general public provides a window in which users could type in a drug code to verify the authenticity of that drug. The admin has the sole authority over the system.

1.1 Introduction

Chapter one introduces the research work and the problem definition of the research, and to know the aim of this research work, research justification tells us why it is important to research Where agent of NAFDAC find it quite difficult to access register pharmaceutical company and drugs right there on the field.on this topic; it also covers areas like scope and limitation of study which entails the boundary of this work. Definition of terms gives summarize what each chapter entails.

1.2 Problem Definition

This research work was undertaken to uncover some of the problems with conventional drug reporting and verification systems. Here, agents of NAFDAC and other drug enforcement agency find it quite difficult to access register pharmaceutical companies . Using these conventional method pose lots of constraint on team member as no team member can access files on the office database while at field work also reports has to be file at the office.

1.3 Objective of Study

In view of the problems mentioned above, this project is aimed at implementing a drug reporting and verification system which will exclusively:

  1. Register every drug produce by every pharmaceutical company in Nigeria
  2. Produce and register drugs verification code
  3. Register pharmaceutical all company in Nigeria with each respective trade mark,
  4. Efficiently handling of fake drug report files and automate the process of drug authentication using appreciate channel.

1.4 Research Justification

This research work will provide a more reliable and flexible way of drugs verification and report filing of fake drugs as well as fake pharmaceutical company not authorize to produce and distribute drug in Nigeria. Also eliminate the lag time in file recovery with an inclusion of an asynchronous request incorporated on the system.

Furthermore, it will aids structural document, representation and eliminates the tedium of performing monotonous transaction. This research will also contribute to existing literature in this area and will serve as a guild or blueprint for an undergraduate student.

1.5 Research Methodology

This research work “design and implementation of an interactive project management system” will be a web-based application and will be implemented on a relational database system(MySQL). Html(hypertext markup language), css(cascading style sheet) and Jquery will be used to design the web-user interface, php (hypertext preprocessor) will be used as the serve- side script language to link the interface and the database.

1.6 Scope and Limitation Of Study

This research work is to develop a system capable of handling all Drugs agencies in Nigeria such as verification and reporting of fake drugs, drugs confirmation code using secure channel, drug enforcement agent .The system will also incorporate in its design a feedback layout between for drug confirmation.

The system will not incorporate in its development all the functions of a drug verification and reporting system but will focus only on the aforementioned functionalities. The system will not be responsible for any loss of data if its environment (network/system installed on) is corrupt.

1.7 Chapter Layout

This section was put in place to explain what each chapter does, chapter one introduces the project to the reader by explaining the problems the project is supposed to solve, objective of the study and research justification is to describe to the reader the purpose and the importance of researching on this topic, research methodology is all about the method used in implementing the research work, scope and limitation describes the boundary of the research work and where the project work can be put into use.

Chapter two deals with the literature review and state-of-the-art. This chapter discusses literature review, what people have published related to this research work and their shortcoming, how this present research can improve their shortcomings.

Chapter three deals with the system design methodology i.e. collection of tools methods and practices for achieving a task; the requirement specification states the expectation of the system analysis, and design which is the blueprint of what the system would carry out.

Chapter four has to do with the implementation, system testing strategies, target computer system requirement, software maintenance etc.

Chapter five discusses the recommendations and conclusion part of the research work and how this work can be applied to the problem domain.

Chapter Five

Summary, Conclusion and Recommendation

5.1 Summary

The aim of this research is to create a drug verification and report filing management system which will make drug verification by drugs enforcement agencies more flexible and reliable. The existing types of a drugs verification management were discussed and it was narrowed down to just a drug verification and reporting system which is the main thrust of this project. The history of drug enforcement agency where highlighted. Process of drug verification were outlined. The system design was made suitable to the system requirements. Embedded in the system design is activity diagram which shows the activities and actions in the system. The implementation of the software was successful.

5.1 Conclusion

Drug verification and report management System will improve the all drug enforcement agency in obtaining a correct sampling and report as well as up to date information on drugs while at the field. Hence it is advised that all drug enforcement agencies in Nigeria should adopt this drug verification and report management system which is reliable, flexible and result oriented.

The resulting software would be of benefit to individuals who which to verify his / her drugs by typing the drug verification code on the system. The software has been able to meet its objectives and will make drug verification and report management more successful.

5.2 Recommendation

The software developed for the implementation of this research can be used by any drug enforcement agencies other than NAFDAC.

The following recommendations are proposed:

  1. Admin should create passwords with long characters so as to make password hacking difficult.
  2. System users should ensure safekeeping of password since it provides access to the system.
  3. System client should login from time to time to see update on drugs report.
