Computer Science Project Material with Source Code Included


This research study focused on Design and Implementation of web-based employee record system, a case study of Akwa Ibom State University. A web-based employee record system is a computerized system that facilitates the management of employee information over the web or internet. The system ensures that the record of employees can be easily handled and updated whenever the need arise. It is an electronic record keeping system that offers several advantages such as saving time and presenting needed information pertaining to employees instantly. Findings revealed that institutions still make use of traditional flat file systems thereby making record management operations difficult. Retrieval and confirmation of employee details is difficult in the manual system. However, with a web-based system, it is easy and time saving to retrieve employee record when needed. The research methodology adopted for the development of the system is the spiral development model and the programming language used is pHp (Hypertext pre-processor) and MySQL is used for the database. In summary, a web-based employee record management system makes the operation of managing employee records easy. Useful recommendations are also offered such as the contracting of Information technology professionals to develop customized solutions to handle online personnel record management systems and the enforcement of laws by the government to make online employee record management system compulsory for all organizations.

Chapter One


1.1 Introduction

All organizations, however large or small, need to keep certain records, some because the law requires them, and some for internal purposes. For instance, keeping records of hours worked by most workers (for the purposes of the implementation of the Working Time Regulations), and pay rates will enable employers to monitor legislation compliance. Every employer also needs records of workers joining them, their job title, pay and so on. A web-based employee management system is an online system that enables organizations to upload information about their employees so that their identity can always be verified. And the basic information about them and their work description can be easily managed. It is an electronic record keeping system that will aid the organization not to be dependent on flat files all the time for managing employee or personnel information. it is an effective means of electronic record management. The goal of web-based employee records Management is to provide professional assistance to state and local government agencies, public and private institutions in managing the records and information required to take care of the institution in an effective and cost-efficient manner. It is an electronic record management system [1].

This chapter introduce the web-based design and implementation of employees record system. It presents the statement of problems, aims and objectives of the study, significance of the study, scope of the study, organization of the research and definition of terms.

1.2 Statement of Problem

Traditionally, paper records placed in a flat file is common place in institutions and organizations, once they were physically filed, they begin to take up valuable office space.

This makes it difficult to retrieve information when they are needed and valuable information that may be needed information may be lost due to the poor practice of dumping the files.

Employee information can only be seen from the manual records.

Also, other organizations that need information about the employees to verify their identity cannot do so in the absence of a web based employee record system.

It is in view of the above listed problems that this research study is conducted to design and implement a web based employee record system.

1.3 Aim and Objectives of the Study

The aim of the study is to develop a Web-based employee record system system that will enable Akwa Ibom state university to maintain the record details of its employees such that it will be easy to retrieve needed information with few button clicks.

The objectives of the study are;

  1. To design a web-based employee record system
  2. To create a system that will aid in retrieving employee details online.
  3. To design a system that will complement or replace the manual way of managing personnel information.

1.4 Significance of the study

The significance of the study is that it will provide a better means of managing employee records online. It will facilitate the capturing of employee information so that it will be easy to manage. The report of any employee can be called up by entering the ID number of the employee. The research study will also be significant to other scholars and researchers seeking for valuable information on the subject of employee record management system and electronic record management as it contains professional accounts of electronic record keeping practice and management in developed countries.

1.5 Scope of the Study

This study covers Web-based Design and Implementation of employee record system using Akwa Ibom State University as s case study. It is limited to the development of an online system that will aid the registration and retrieval of employee records (bio-data and job description details).
