DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION OF A SOFTWARE BASED PERSONAL DIGITAL ASSISTANCE (PDA) . A RESEARCH PROJECT MATERIAL ON COMPUTER SCIENCE
The topic of the study “Design and Implementation of a Software based Personal Digital Assistance (PDA)” is the one I will be writing about in this project.
The world is in a state of flux and volume of activities awaiting an individual to carry out has become tremendous and in some case complex.
The individual needs to keep and organize his daily, past and future activities. This including keeping records of telephone numbers and addresses of friends and business associate, wedding, contact and business opportunities, list of debtors and creditors and other addresses including menu time table in the home and other private matters that cannot be easily remembered. The computer can be used to store these data organized in a way that a meaningful information can be got from them quickly too.
1.1 BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
The study “Design and Implementation of a Personal digital Assistance” (P.D.A) is aimed at developing a software package that will provide the user with a good environment to organizing the personal data and records for easy access and retrieval of information that are in constraint use. Software is the general name for all programs executable by computer system in order to produce the desire result.
A program is defined as a list of logically arranged instruction that is executable by the computer system in order to give the desired result. Therefore software based personal organizer, in this study, refers to the application of computer software in the storage, retrieval and organization of personal data and information. There is no individual, no matter his/her level of responsibility who has ever had the need to keep any sort of records be it mere thought, facts and figures keeping records is like breathing. In human perspectives breathing is good but there is something more than breathing that is being alive.
