  4. 4. ACKNOWLEDGEMENT Thanks to God whom with His willing giving us the opportunity to complete Final YearProject which is entitled Developing MS Excel Computation in Highway Engineering (FlexiblePavement Design). This final year project report was prepared for Department of CivilEngineering, Polytechnic Ungku Omar (PUO), basically for student in final year to complete theprogram that leads to the Diploma in Civil Engineering. This report is based on the methodsgiven by Polytechnic. Firstly, I would like to express my deepest thanks to, En Azhar @ Adzhar Bin MohdNoor, a lecturer in Civil Engineering Department of PUO, also assign, as our supervisor whohad guided us a lot for during this whole semester. We also want to thanks the lecturers andstaffs of Civil Engineering Department for their cooperation during the completion of final yearproject that had give valuable information, suggestions and guidance in the compilation andpreparation this final year project report. Deepest thanks and appreciation to our parents, family, and others for their cooperation,encouragement, constructive suggestion and full of support for the report completion, from thebeginning till the end. Also thanks to all my friends and everyone, those have been contributedby supporting my work and help us during the final year project progress till it is fullycompleted. Last but not least, our thanks to our PA, En Azman Bin Baharom and Puan Julaiha BtAbdul Rahim for great commitment and cooperation during our Final Year Project . Thank you. iv
  5. 5. ABSTRACT A use of computer software nowadays is to assist and facilitate the calculation andmanagement of data handling is required. The rapid development in the field of InformationTechnology now requires the operator (human) efficient and skilled to ensure the effectivenessof the developed applications and software that can be used is use. The Flexible Pavement Design calculations are difficult to do as well as uses paper andcalculators, especially when the matter is to be analyzed and need to compare with ArahanTeknik Jalan (ATJ) 1985. This can be improves by computational efficiency and describes byMS Excel 2007 software. This will reduce the time taken to complete the work of manualcalculation and with a click it will be able to complete the task given automatically. v
  6. 6. ABSTRAK Penggunaan perisian komputer pada masa kini adalah untuk membantu danmemudahkan pengiraan dan pengurusan pengendalian data diperlukan. Perkembanganpesat dalam bidang Teknologi Maklumat kini memerlukan pengendali (manusia) yangcekap dan mahir untuk memastikan keberkesanan aplikasi maju dan perisian yang bolehdigunakan ialah penggunaan. Rekabentuk Fleksibel pengiraan turapan adalah sukar untuk melakukan sertamenggunakan kertas dan kalkulator, terutamanya apabila perkara itu adalah untukdianalisis dan perlu untuk membandingkan dengan Arahan Teknik Jalan (ATJ) 1985Manual. Ini boleh meningkatkan oleh kecekapan pengiraan dan menggambarkan perisianMS Excel 2007. Ini akan mengurangkan masa yang diambil untuk menyiapkan kerjapengiraan manual dan dengan satu klik, ia akan dapat untuk menyelesaikan tugas yangdiberikan secara automatik. vi
