PROBLEM STATEMENT

 

The Project is of the Human Resource department where the database is divided into four main parts:

  • Employee Information
  • Application Information
  • Medical Information
  • Training Information

 

Our Project deals with the database for Employees’ Training Program. The company has recently done a study of the Training Application for its client Pakistan Petroleum Limited (PPL). The idea has also been proposed to and approved by the management for developing a similar system at Jaffer Brothers.

 

The existing manual system the HR department was following failed to organize and schedule courses for its employees as suggested by the department supervisors for their subordinates.

 

The company faced problems in keeping track of the employee training information. The information was kept in files, which were difficult to handle for each particular employee. It was also very difficult to check whether the candidate could do a particular course or not. The training information is also used in the career development of the employee.

 

It was also difficult for the HR department to keep track of all the trainees and courses in a particular session and to find particular information, for example which courses a particular employee had done, which was a real hassle.


LIST OF SPECIFIC PROBLEMS AND JUSTIFICATION OF NEW SYSTEM

 

Specific Problems

  • Difficulty in record keeping and retrieving
  • Existing system was time consuming and inefficient
  • Training program was not very effective
  • Manual procedures were difficult to follow and hard to manage
  • Difficulty in checking whether the candidate fulfilled the basic requirements for a particular course
  • It was also difficult to retrieve information about a particular course held some time back

Justification of new system

 

The new system will help the HR department in keeping records and will save time in retrieval of information. This will make it easier for the HR department to arrange courses and check whether a particular employee is eligible to take a particular course or not.

 

The candidates can be given priority based on whether they have appraisals from their supervisors. This makes it easier for the HR department to make a decision on which employees to enroll for a particular course. With this system the company can information of previous training courses held, when they were held and who were enrolled for them.
