CHAPTER I

University Background
HISTORY OF SHEPHERD GRACE SCHOOL
SGS-Shepherd’s Grace School, Inc. is a Catholic School and is open to all religion. It respects personal preferences and values.
It was May 2, 2009 when our arrangement to take over the operation of a private school was confirmed and finalized. Dr. Elizabeth K. Buyayo, the other owner, suggested that we register the school with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
The former school, which was closed due to problems encountered by the former owners, was known as “St. Anthony de Padua School”.
When we decided to operate the school, we immediately change the name to “SGS Shepherd’s Grace School, a private Catholic School and was approved by SEC. the curriculum includes from Preparatory level to high School level.
The school building condition needs major renovation and repainting when we finally open for operation. We also have to purchase several school equipment, furniture and fixtures and other materials for the school year 2009-2010 operation. We spent no less than half a million pesos to keep the operation going. We are always worrying where we can get the financial support to pay the salaries of our teachers and our most concern, theP40, 000.00 monthly rental. Another problem is the collection of tuition fees, which most parents are delayed in paying their obligations. All these problems were almost solved except for the total collection of tuition fees.
Believing in the Good Shepherd, our Lord Jesus Christ, He will guide us in this mission and we are taking the challenge to continue and dream not only to survive but to increase our service in this educational and spiritual mission.
The school administrator, Faculty, and Staff wishes to welcome you to SGS- shepherd’s grace school whose very foundation merely purports towards elevating your total personality into a higher level of self-awareness, social and technological competence through the inculcation both of the very essence of spiritual development and the power of education.
In our pursuit to make you realize the importance of academic excellence in order to achieve a highest desire to be of great service to humanity and the world in general, the institution manages to keep its emphasis on a value-centered curriculum that does not deviate from a democratic yet orderly system of education.
We assure you that this is institution whose luster as an academe will continue to shine; however, the success of your children depends on the personal effort and diligence that they exercise.
GOALS AND OBJECTIVES * Academic skills-To provide our students adequate learning facilities. * Spiritual and moral values-To mould them through a true-to-life fine examples that they can imitate from their mentors. * Physical and socio-emotional growth-To help their socio-emotional growth physical activities with proper environment conductive for learning. * Proper motivation at home, church, and community.

The time estimates managers provide for the various activities comprising a project involve different degrees of certainty. When time estimates can be made with a high degree of certainty, they are called deterministic estimates. When they are subject to variation, they are probabilistic estimates. In using the probabilistic approach, managers provide three estimates for each activity: an optimistic or best case estimate; a pessimistic or worst case estimate; and the most likely estimate. Statistical methods can be used to describe the extent of variably in these estimates, and thus the degree of uncertainty in the time provided for each activity. Computing the standard deviation of each path provides a probabilistic estimate required to complete the overall project.

Conclusion
This project has been concerned with system development as an opportunity to reconceptualise work practices – to transcend the traditional ways of doing work by creating new relations between proponents, their computational tools and their tasks. Development has been seen as a cooperative effort between users, who know their practices and implicitly know what a new should do, and developers, who know the technological possibilities for the new systems but not what technologies are appropriate for the proponent practices. The problem for system development has been framed as a movement from a tacit and distributed understanding of existing practices toward a shared vision of what new practices should be.
Recommendation
The proponent strongly recommends the “Computerized Library System” be implemented. The proposed system, if implemented will be a great big help to those schools who are manual based library. Paper based records system must be converted to Computerized Library System, which will let them save precious time and effort.

...are now making their systems computerized since that helps them minimize the time and efforts consumed by using manual system. Point-of-Sale Inventory System is one of the essential components of a successful business. It is a modern replacement for cash register in retail applications. It can help to record securely all the sales and customer’s orders and track products. A sale refers to the exchange of product or services for an amount of money or its equivalent while inventory, on the other hand, is the total amount of items and the act of counting them. A pharmacy owner must know the precise number of items in their storage areas in order to place orders and control losses up to date. Hence, computerizing both Sales and Inventory System will make an easier and faster transaction among the customers as well as monitoring the stocks of the products. Furthermore, the system also gives the person up-to-the-minute and detailed information on each item in your inventory. He/she will know exactly how much inventory comes in; is on-hand now, and where it goes. In fact, most entrepreneurs these days find that computerizing a system gives them a far wider range of information with less effort. Sales and inventory programs now on the market allows one to track usage, monitor changes in unit costs, calculate items when you need to reorder, and analyze inventory levels on an item-to-item basis. In contrast, using a manual Point of Sale (POS) with Inventory System can affect the......

...SYSTEM SELECTION Proper heating and cooling system selection takes into consideration fuel sources (e.g., natural gas and electricity), distribution mechanisms (e.g., air and hydronic), equipment options (e.g., furnace and heat pump), and equipment efficiency. Perform a life-cycle analysis of various properly sized HVAC options to select a cost-effective system. Cost considerations include equipment and installation prices, annual heating and cooling expenses, and maintenance costs. Although more difficult to evaluate, equipment reliability, longevity, warranty coverage, and safety are also important. For example, the heating fuel source directly impacts operating costs. Also, high-efficiency heating equipment often costs more than standard-efficiency models, but it costs less to run. So the life-cycle cost—rather than initial purchase price—may make high-efficiency equipment or one fuel rather than another the economical choice. Some HVAC contractors and local utilities provide life-cycle analysis of various equipment options. A summary of many easy-to-use software products for estimating annual heating and cooling costs is compiled by DOE’s BTS (www.eren.doe.gov/buildings) WHY SIZING IS IMPORTANT A common mistake in the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) industry is to oversize heating and cooling equipment, especially air conditioners and heat pumps.

Inventory System

...Introduction An inventory system is basically a process whereby a business keeps track of the goods and material it has available. In its simplest sense it can be done manually by a count at the end of each day. In this way it is possible to keep a record of the goods coming in to the business and goods being sold. However this is only really appropriate for small businesses that do not have a lot of stock. For larger business it is more likely that a computerized system will be required. Transaction processing systems are commonly used to operate businesses. In this era, manual transactions evolved into computerized ones. Manual inventory systems turned out to be slow and inaccurate resulting to problems like running out of stocks and slow computations of product prices being bought by the customers. The degree of success of a business greatly depends upon controlling the merchandise inventory. The continuously improving and upgrading of computer usage into more powerful and useful applications has made managing business transactions a lot more efficient and easier. Today, businesses use the computer to assist in controlling and monitoring many aspects of the businesses, since manual approach in data processing could no longer meet the demands of increasing volume of transactions. Background of the Study Inventory is the term used for compiled list of goods. Inventory is important process in effective management of a business. The Company named Fast Services......

Benefits of Using a Computerized Inventory System

...An additional benefit of using a computerized inventory system is the accuracy it ensures.
