1.2 Statement Of The Problem

The importance of household inventory cannot be readily appreciated unless its value is clearly stated by a value. Although the value of any household inventory differs from place to place and time to time but the basic of each valuation is relatively the same at the same instance and time.

If it is true different property located at the same area with the same purpose can be evaluated in the same purpose can be evaluated in the same way there is need to ask. ? why the reputation of such valuation on different property in the same area? Hone can the various valuation job be centered to uniform the need of the property owner and the value what is the basic of valuation taking to different property at each given time?

1.3 Purpose Of The Study

The inventory designed for computer household valuation system is aimed at so making tedious work in calculation scaling and repetitive work of the manufacture appraisal.

It will guide the research in compiling all real household inventory listing off property valuated by portraying a data base of different property value that will show a prototype to the present job stoke and creating the enabling environment for its format and frame work.

1.4 Scope Of The Study

Although presidential hotel is an established firm that has branches at Lagos Jos Abuja Port-Harcourt etc. all the information used for this research report is based on the collected from the Enugu office due to time and resources.

As much as the business of household inventory system comprises of a while lot of household management valuation and facility etc. The designed worked covers only valuation report

1.6 Objective Of The Study

In companies and industrial where there is household inventory planning it could be observed that properties in the different area of their department are well erected following the specific rules and regulation; the need for this planning is seen when the property owner want to know the value of his wealth.

Therefore the design and implementation of a computer based household inventory system will not only benefit the researcher and value or property owner but will also create and improved system of marketing agent and environment as follows.

The producer will find this hard value very much important because it will make his job feasible in course of any field (in course of any) work made on valuation and report to be presentable he will not need to expose his valuation report to anybody outside the business contract and the report will be made within shortest space of time. It will be a business ascribe as just in time business report where the need for filling report will be eliminated entirely. The property owner is at the better position to benefit because he will get the value of this property without much involvement and at every instance he stands to know precisely the value at which his property worthy.

This work aim at encouraging every principal agent independent contractors and other associate members to accept the need to be computerized in all their practical job since the marketing agents will find it interesting to always present the household inventory business on line as regards the status of real property in market at every given time.

1.7 Importance Of The Study

The research study is aimed at eliminating the manual system of household inventory system the project will help to create effective management information system in presidential hotel Enugu and most computer based enterprises. Because the system will given information regarding items which have fallen to re-order level and can also be programmed to issue replenishment order thereby conquering the problems encountered in the manual system where the reordering system is overloaded.

Moreover the research work will be of immense benefit to the future researcher on the same problem because my approach to the fact finding was not a passive exercise rather all information were examined and challenged.
