There are a figure of residential attention place around UK, registered with the “ Commission Quality of Care ” to work with grownups with “ Learning disablement ” . The purpose of those Care places is to advance occupants ‘ independency.
All attention places in the UK have a medicine policy. In most attention places, medicine supply is received every four hebdomads for all occupants. Once received, the medicine has to travel through a manual stock list procedure and entered manually in the “ medicine stock control sheet ” and “ Mar sheet ” which is signed when medicine is administered to a occupant. The reorder of medicine is done in most instances by naming the local chemist, five yearss before the following supply of medicine is due.
The job associated with re-ordering over the phone has proven to be clip devouring and undependable, as staffs have forgotten to name the chemist over few occasions, ensuing in medicine running out, and the occupants non taking their medicine, which can be damaging to their wellness. The solution to this job will be to plan, develop and implement package that enables the re-ordering of medicine electronically
Project- Brief description
The purpose of this undertaking is develop package that will ease the re-ordering of medicine electronically.
An electronic medicine disposal record sheet ‘s database will be implemented which will be a four hebdomads calendar/chart exposing each occupant ‘s information:
Resident ‘s full name
Date of birth
A recent exposure
Name of the medicine to be dispensed along with the dosage, path and clip
Any allergic reactions
The get downing day of the month of the medicine to be dispensed
The day of the month the stock of medicine has been received
The stock degree of medicine
Medication non dispensed
At the completion of each medicine unit of ammunition, informations will be entered in the calendar/chart by carers, to update the information in the database.
Therefore, it will so be possible to maintain path on the stock degree of the medicine, as the stock lessenings, five yearss before the following supply of medicine, an automated electronic mail and a text message will be sent to the local chemist. Furthermore, with such a database it will be possible to find whether medicine had been dispensed or non.
The package to be implemented will extinguish anomalousnesss in the system
The package will automatize the system
The system will be cost-efficient and dependable
Design, implement, trial, and measure a paradigm application which reflects the award larning result and undertaking thought
Plan and pull off the undertaking utilizing set techniques in order to guarantee the undertaking is to be delivered on clip and meets the specification

Document each phase of the undertaking
Research into the technological environment and how the execution will suit in
Record all meetings with undertaking supervisor in a suited logbook
Complete undertaking within university Torahs and ordinances and make it ethically in conformity with BCS ethical codifications of behavior
The benefit of the undertaking will be that it will guarantee dependability, as medicine will be re-ordered on clip
The occupants ‘ wellness will non be affected
Automated messages are faster, dependable and cost effectual, than phone calls
Resources: Technical resources required will be
Laptop processor 1.60 GHz, 3GB of Random-access memory
5 mega pel camera

The undertaking will take 120 yearss to be completed.
Results and Primary deliverable of the undertaking is to bring forth a fully-functional package
Deliverables: paradigm artifact in line with the demand specification.
Report documenting every phase of the undertaking
Ethical motives statement
Background and thoughts
Academic research will be undertaken to underpin the undertaking
Research into HCL of the screen designs and serviceability

Human Computer Interface design and serviceability
Human computing machine Interface Design seeks to detect the most efficient manner to plan apprehensible electronic messages.
The package to be implemented will be used by a diverseness of staffs and occupants ( observing that occupants are allowed by jurisprudence to acquire entree to their personal informations including medicine records ) .
In order to acknowledge diverseness, it is of import to take into history the type of user patronizing the system, runing from novitiate user, knowing and adept user. Each user will anticipate the screen layout to suit their desires, novitiates necessitating extended aid, experts desiring to voyage every bit rapidly as possible. In order to suit different manners on the same page can be disputing.
There are eight regulations for Interface design
Strive for consistence
Consistent sequences of actions should be required in similar state of affairss
Identical nomenclature should be used in prompts, bill of fare, and aid screens
Consistent coloring material, layouts, capitalisation, founts should be employed throughout
Ensure that pages are clear in many formats, to suit users who are blind or deaf
Enable frequent users to utilize cutoffs
To increase the gait of interaction usage abbreviations, particular keys, concealed bids
Offer enlightening feedback
For every user action, the system respond in some manner, for illustration snaping a button will ensue in sound, or it changes coloring materials
Design duologues to give closing
Sequences of actions should be organized into groups with a beginning, in-between, and terminal. Feedback to demo that activity has completed successfully
Offer mistake bar and simple mistake managing
The signifier to be designed should forestall serious mistakes, for illustration by leting merely numeral entries in a bill of fare choice, for case
If users make an mistake, instructions should be written to observe the mistake and offer simple, constructive and specific instructions for recovery
The signifier should let easy reversible actions
Support internal venue control
Experienced users should be in charge, to avoid anxiousness and dissatisfaction when errors are made
Reduce short term memory burden
A celebrated survey suggests that worlds can hive away merely 7 ( plus or minus 2 ) pieces of information in their short term memory. This can be reduced by planing screens where options are clearly seeable, or utilizing pull-down bill of fares and icons.
Data security and legal issues
