AUTOMATED ORDERING SYSTEM USING ANDROID APPLICATION WITH BILLING AND INVENTORY SYSTEMS IN A RESTAURANT A Title Defense Presented to The Faculty of Institute of Information and Communications Technology West Visayas State University La Paz, Iloilo City In Partial Fulfillment of the Requirements for Introduction to Research in IICT Ruth Adorable Ma. Rosevelle Cainglet Kristine Genogaling Kasandra Leah Jayne Paniza Mary Joy Petrola Abstract This study focuses on developing an Automated Ordering System using Android Application with Billing and Inventory Systems in a Restaurant.
The main goal of the study is to shorten the time taken during the instance a customer orders. Also, this study wants to track the inventory in an easier and convenient way. The billing system will assist in calculating the total earnings of the restaurant for a day, week and month. The study is expected to optimize Android Application using tablets. It describes the main features of Android for a better understanding of this platform. Java Script was the programming language development technology used in building the system. The system allows the customer to order a menu without calling any of the service crew.
The customer can simply select the food to be ordered from the given menu through a tablet that is provided in every table which is embedded with an android application. The billing system is associated with the two other systems, which records the total bills of the customers. In paying the bill, the customer can do it in two ways either it can be cash or credit. The records for the supply goods and the sold products are documented in the inventory system. Every tablet has a unique code where the server can identify if what table the order is coming from.
The tablet is linked to the counter and also to the server that is located in the kitchen. To sum it up, the three systems are interrelated to help the restaurant in attaining their goals and objectives. Chapter 1 Chapter 1 is composed of six different parts to be discussed namely: (1) Background of the Study, (2) Overview of Related Systems, (3) Objectives of the Study, (4) Significance of the Study, (5) Definition of Terms, (6) Delimitation of the Study. Part One, Background of the Study, discusses the rationale for choosing the problem.
Part Two, Overview of the Related Systems, explains the features, capabilities, and limitations of the related system. Part Three, Objectives of the Study, states the goals that the study needed to accomplish. Part Four, Significance of the Study, enumerates the importance of the study and its beneficiaries. Part Five, Definition of Terms, conceptually and operationally defines important terms used in the study. Part Six, Delimitation of the Study, sets the ranges that are included in the study, as well as the boundaries and scope affected by the proposed system. Background of the Study
Nowadays most of the restaurants are having big problems regarding with their old ordering process. The basic problem in the food service industry is that restaurant is not realizing efficiencies that would result from better applications of technology in their daily operations. After analysing the said situation we’ve come up to a proposal that can help these problems of restaurants. This system that we’ve come up can let the costumers order through simply choosing the menus that they like through a tablet that is in their tables. This tablet has an installed android OS with android applications.
This system can give a lot of benefits. With the new open and comprehensive platform for tablet device called android operating systems and android applications, we come up to extend to proposed automated ordering, inventory and billing system using android application in a restaurant. With this kind of systems, the management can provide immediate help for the customers. Customers won’t bother about their tables while they are ordering because in every table there is one tablet embedded with android applications. Overview of Related Literature Objectives of the Study
This study aims to determine the objectives of Automated Ordering System Using Android Application with Billing and Inventory System in a Restaurant. 1. To develop an automated ordering, inventory and billing system using android application. 2. To develop an ordering system that allows customer’s entry of orders to be forwarded immediately to the kitchen. 3. To create an inventory system to record the purchased and the consumed supply of products. 4. To develop an inventory system that records the supply goods and the sold products of the restaurant. 5.
