The deal was secured by a US$75 downpayment and the brothers borrowed $900 to pay for the store. Eight months later, Jamestraded his half of the business to Tom for a used Volkswagen Beetle. As sole owner of thecompany, Monaghan renamed the business Dominos Pizza, Inc. in 1965. In 1967, the firstDominos Pizza franchise store opened in Ypsilanti. The company logo was originally plannedto add a new dot with the addition of every new store, but this idea quickly faded asDominos experienced rapid growth. The three dots represent the stores that were open atthe time (1969). By 1978, the franchise opened its 200th store.In 1975, Dominos faced a lawsuit by Amstar Corporation, maker of Domino Sugar, allegingtrademark infringement and unfair competition.

In a simultaneous celebration in 2006, Dominos opened its 5,000th U.S.store in Huntley, Illinois, and its 3,000th international store in Panama City, making 8,000
total stores for the system. Also that year, the Dominos Pizza store in Tallaght, Dublin,Ireland, became the first in Dominos history to hit a turnover of $3 million (€2.35 million) peryear. As of September 2006, it has 8,238 stores which totaled US$1.4 billion in gross income.In 2007, Dominos introduced its Veterans, Delivering the Dream franchising programs andalso rolled out its online and mobile ordering sites.

Cheeses. In December that year, Dominosannounced plans to entirely reinvent its pizza. It began a self-flogging ad campaign in whichconsumers were filmed criticizing the pizzas quality and chefs were shown developing thenew product. The new pizza was introduced that same month, and the following year,Dominos 50th anniversary, the company acquired J. Patrick Doyle as its new CEO andexperienced a historic 14.3% quarterly gain. While admitted not to endure, the success wasdescribed by Doyle as one of the largest quarterly same-store sales jumps ever recorded by amajor fast-food chain.Products
A makeline at a DominosThe current Dominos menu features a variety of Italian-American entrees and side dishes.Pizza is the primary focus, with traditional, specialty and custom pizzas available in a varietyof crust styles and toppings. In 2011 Dominos launced Artisan style pizzas that offer a baseblend of rich flavors to compliment chef inspired toppings. Additional entrees include pasta,bread bowls and oven-baked sandwiches. The menu offers chicken side dishes, breadsticks,as well as beverages and desserts.From its founding until the early 1990s, the menu at Dominos Pizza was kept simple relativeto other fast food restaurants, to ensure efficiency of delivery. Historically, Dominos menuconsisted solely of one pizza in two sizes (12-inch and 16-inch), 11 toppings, and Coke as theonly soft drink option.The first menu expansion occurred in 1989, with the debut of Dominos deep dish, or panpizza. Its introduction followed market research showing that 40% of American pizzacustomers preferred thick crusts. The new product launch cost approximately $25 million, ofwhich $15 million was spent on new sheet metal pans with perforated bottoms. Dominosstarted testing extra-large size pizzas in early 1993, starting with the 30-slice, yard-long "TheDominator".Dominos tapped into a market trend toward bite-size foods with spicy Buffalo ChickenKickers, as an alternative to Buffalo Wings, in August 2002. The breaded, baked, white-meatfillets, similar to chicken tenders, are packaged in a custom-designed box with two types ofsauce to "heat up" and "cool down" the chicken.In August 2003, Dominos announced its first new pizza since January 2000, the Philly CheeseSteak Pizza. The product launch also marked the beginning of a partnership with the NationalCattlemens Beef Association, whose beef Check-Off logo appeared in related advertising.Dominos continued its move toward specialty pizzas in 2006, with the introduction of its"Brooklyn Style Pizza", featuring a thinner crust, cornmeal baked in to add crispness, andlarger slices that could be folded in the style of traditional New York-style pizza.In 2008, Dominos once again branched out into non-pizza fare, offering oven-bakedsandwiches in four styles, intended to compete with Subways toasted submarinesandwiches. Early marketing for the sandwiches made varied references to its competition,such as offering free sandwiches to customers named "Jared," a reference to Subwaysspokesman of the same name.
The company introduced its American Legends line of specialty pizzas in 2009, featuring 40%more cheese than the companys regular pizzas, along with a greater variety of toppings. Thatsame year, Dominos began selling its BreadBowl Pasta entree, a lightly seasoned bread bowlbaked with pasta inside, and Lava Crunch Cake dessert, composed of a crunchy chocolateshell filled with warm fudge. Dominos promoted the item by flying in 1,000 cakes to deliverat Hoffstadt Bluffs Visitor Center near Mount St Helens.In 2010, shortly after the companys 50th anniversary, Dominos changed its pizza recipe"from the crust up", making significant changes in the dough, sauce and cheese used in theirpizzas. Their advertising campaign admitted to earlier problems with the public perception ofDominos product due to issues of taste.Since the companies stock low in late 2009, the companys stock had grown 233 percent bylate 2011. Even as the economy has suffered and unemployment has risen, Dominos has seenits sales rise dramatically through its efforts to rebrand and retool its pizza.Dominos serves Coca-Cola products, and as of January 2012 is the only "Big Four" pizza chainto do so. Rivals Papa Johns Pizza and Little Caesars sold Coca-Cola in the past (Pizza Hut, dueto its previous ownership by PepsiCo, has a lifetime contract to sell Pepsi products.), but bothswitched to Pepsi in 2012 and 2007, respectively.Corporate governanceDominos management is led by J. Patrick Doyle, CEO from March 2010, formerly president ofDominos USA. Previous chief executive David Brandon, made athletic director of theUniversity of Michigan in January 2010, remains chairman.]Among 11 executive vicepresidents are Michael Lawton, CFO; Asi Sheikh, Team USA; Scott Hinshaw, FranchiseOperations and Development; and Kenneth Rollin, General Counsel. Dominos operations areoverseen by a board of directors led by Brandon. Other members of the board are AndrewBalson, Diana Cantor, Mark Nunnelly, Robert Rosenberg and Bud Hamilton.Charitable activitiesIn 2001, Dominos launched a two-year national partnership with the Make-A-WishFoundation of America. That same year, the company stores in New York City andWashington D.C. provided more than 12,000 pizzas to relief workers following the September11 attacks on the World Trade Center and The Pentagon. Through a matching funds program,the corporation donated $350,000 to the American Red Cross disaster relief effort. In 2004,Dominos began its current partnership with St. Jude Childrens Research Hospital,participating in the hospitals "Thanks and Giving" campaign since it began in 2004, raisingmore than $1.3 million in 2006.
Dominos Australia donates large quantities of pizza to natural disaster victims. They alsoprovide food to isolated towns in rural areas that dont have access to large amounts of food.Dominos Australia has partnerships with Mission Australia, Royal Flying Doctor Service,Starlight Foundation and Marymead.Advertising and sponsorshipArie Luyendyks Lola-Chevrolet which won the 1990 Indianapolis 500 for Doug ShiersonRacing.In the 1980s, Dominos Pizza was well known for its advertisements featuring The Noid. Thatconcept was created by Group 243 Inc. who then hired Will Vinton Studios to produce thetelevision commercials that they created. The catchphrase associated with the commercialswas "Avoid the Noid."Due to a glitch on the Dominos website, the company gave away nearly 11,000 free mediumpizzas in March 2009. The company had planned the campaign for December 2008 butdropped the idea and never promoted it. The code was never deactivated though andresulted in the free giveaway of the pizzas across the United States after someone discoveredthe promotion on the website by typing in the word "bailout" as the promotion code andthen shared it with others on the Internet. Dominos deactivated the code on the morning ofTuesday, March 31, 2009 and promised to reimburse store owners for the pizzas.Dominos sponsored CARTs Doug Shierson Racing, which was driven by Arie Luyendyk, andthe team won the 1990 Indianapolis 500.

30-minute guaranteeA car with a Dominos stick-on cone on roofStarting in 1973, Dominos Pizza had a guarantee that customers would receivetheir pizzas within 30 minutes of placing an order, or they would receive thepizzas free. The guarantee was reduced to $3 off in the mid 1980s. In 1992, the
company settled a lawsuit brought by the family of an Indiana woman who hadbeen killed by a Dominos delivery driver, paying the family $2.8 million. Inanother 1993 lawsuit, brought by a woman who was injured when a Dominosdelivery driver ran a red light and collided with her vehicle, the woman wasawarded nearly $80 million, but accepted a payout of $15 million. Theguarantee was dropped that same year because of the "public perception ofreckless driving and irresponsibility", according to Monaghan.In December 2007, Dominos introduced a new slogan, "You Got 30 Minutes",alluding to the earlier pledge but stopping short of promising delivery in a halfhour.The company continues to offer "30 minute or Free" guarantee for ordersplaced in its stores situated in India.International operationsMap showing Dominos Pizzas global locations.

Managers use thiscomputer-based system to organize, analyze, and execute plans to help theorganization flow and accomplish its goals. The system can be used to studyinformation in the form of employees, cost, profit, technology, procedures anddocuments.Often MIS are much different from standard information systems because theystudy other information systems that are related to the operational tasks in anestablishment. It is highly important for an organization to understand what MISthey need in order to remain competitive in the industry. Secondly, it is important
for an organization to have a MIS which will promote both short term and longterm organization goals. The improvement of technology over the years hasallowed managers to make faster decisions based on the information that iscollected by the system. However, this is also a negative aspect to the informationsystems. Situations can happen where imprecise reporting can take place thusleading to terrible decision making.MIS can vary from one type of business to another however; the main goal of allsystems is to support organizational goals and objectives and to develop greaterlevel of communication among all the employees. Creators of MIS must keep inmind to create systems that are relievable, accurate, complete, relevant andconsistent.In this research paper, I will discuses the MIS used in two different restaurants“food chains” “Dominos Pizza & Applebee’s”. I intend to showcase the MIS usedto help the two restaurants accomplish day to day business activities. In eachrestaurant the ambiance, purpose and atmosphere is different. We can see whythe two MIS are different and why it’s more appropriate for one MIS to belong inone restaurant and not the other.About us:-Domino´s Pizza HeritageLike most corporate success stories, Domino´s started out small - with just one store in 1960.Now, Domino´s Pizza is celebrating over forty years of delivering food, fun and innovation .Domino´s Pizza Timeline1960Tom Monaghan and his brother James purchase "DomiNick´s," a pizza store in Ypsilanti,Michigan.

All members of the Audit, Nominating and CompensationCommittees will, subject to the New York Stock Exchange Listing Standards, beindependent directors and will satisfy the New York Stock Exchangeindependence requirement. Frequency and Length of Committee Meetings andCommittee Agenda. The Committee Chair, in consultation with the other
Committee members, will determine the frequency and length of Committeemeetings and, with appropriate members of management and staff, develop theagenda for Committee meetings. The meeting minutes of the Committees will beshared with the full Board of Directors.VI. Leadership Development. The Compensation Committee will evaluate theChief Executive Officer annually based on clearly articulated criteria, includingperformance of the business, accomplishment of long-term strategic objectives,development of senior management and the Chief Executive Officer’s annualbusiness goals. The evaluation will be communicated to the Chief ExecutiveOfficer by the Chair of the Compensation Committee. The evaluation will be usedby the Compensation Committee in determining the compensation of the ChiefExecutive Officer. The Chief Executive Officer will review succession planningand management development with the Board of Directors on an annual basis.This succession planning includes the development by the Nominating andCorporate Governance Committee of policies and principles for selection of theChief Executive Officer, including succession in the event of an emergency orretirement.VII. Ethics and Conflicts of Interest. The Board expects Domino’s directors, aswell as officers and employees, to act ethically at all times and to acknowledgetheir adherence to the policies comprising the Domino’s Pizza Code of Ethics.Any violation of the Domino’s Pizza Code of Ethics shall be reported to theChairman of the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee. TheCompany will not make any personal loans or extension of credit to directors orexecutive officers. No non-employee director may provide personal services forcompensation to the Company, other than in connection with serving as adirector. The board will not permit any waiver of an ethics policy for anydirector or executive officer.VIII. Reporting of Concerns to Non-Employee Directors or the Audit CommitteeDomino’s encourage its team members to discuss their concerns about theCompany’s conduct with their supervisors, People First representatives ormembers of the legal department. Any team member who has a complaint aboutthe Company’s accounting practices, internal accounting controls or auditingmatters, may communicate that concern directly to the non-employee directors orto the Audit Committee. Such communications may be confidential or
anonymous, and may be e-mailed or submitted in writing and may be sent tospecial addresses that are published on the company’s website. All suchcommunications will be promptly reviewed by the Director of Internal Audit andany concerns relating to accounting, internal controls, auditing or officer conductwith respect to these matters will be sent immediately to the Chair of the AuditCommittee. • Identification of opportunities and threates:-OpportunitiesThere are favorable market expansion opportunities for Domino’s Pizza Inc inIndia and China where currently it have very few franchises moreover newproduct development by introducing new products in the current menu are a stepthat can be taken. Especially introduction of new flavor additives and pizzatoppings that are region specific can be a good stride for Domino’s.The distribution network should be further strengthened so as to ensure marketpenetration in the existing markets at maximum optimum levels.Threats:- The major threat to Domino’s Pizza Inc., like all other fast food restaurants, isthe increasing consumer awareness about the he harmful health implicationsassociated with high calorie fast food items. The researches in the health sectorabout the fast food products being saturated with fats, oil, sugars and sodium etcpose a threat to Domino’s. In addition to this there are other researches showingthe potential harmful effects associated with the artificial additives, flavors andpreservatives added to these fast foods.Intensive competition and franchise management which vary with currencyfluctuations pose a threat to the company. Apart from that Domino’s operationsin countries like India, where there is unruly traffic system, are greatly affected toreach its claim.

They are also highly fragmented. Pizza delivery, through which amajority of our retail sales are generated, had sales of $10.9 billion in the twelvemonths ended November 2008. As the leader in U.S. pizza delivery, believe thatconvenient store locations, simple operating model, widely-recognized brand andefficient supply chain system are competitive advantages that position tocapitalize on future growth.• Leverage strong brand awareness.
Believe that the strength of Domino’s Pizza brand makes one of the first choicesof consumers seeking a convenient, quality and affordable meal. They intend tocontinue to promote brand name and enhance reputation as the leader in pizzadelivery Leading industry publication Pizza Today magazine named Domino’sPizza" Chain of the Year" in 2003In 2007 it launched the campaign, “You Got 30Minute,” which built on the Company’s 30-minute delivery heritage .In 2007 and2008, each domestic stores contributed 4% of their retail sales to advertising fundfor national advertising in addition to contributions for market-level advertising.Intend to leverage strong brand by continuing to introduce innovative,consumer-tested and profitable new product varieties (such as Domino’s BrooklynStyle Pizza and Domino’s Oven Baked Sandwiches), complementary side items.•Expand and optimize domestic store base .Plan to continue expanding base ofdomestic stores to take advantage of the attractive growth opportunities in U.S.pizza delivery. They believe that scale allows expanding store base with limitedmarketing, distribution and other incremental infrastructure costs. Additionally,franchise-oriented business model allows expanding store base with limitedcapital expenditures and working capital requirements. While they plan toexpand traditional domestic store base primarily through opening new franchisestores, they will also continually evaluate mix of Company-owned and franchisestores and strategically acquire franchise stores and refranchise .Company-ownedstores.• Continue to grow international business.They believe that pizza hasglobalappeal and that there is strong and growing international demand fordelivered pizza. Theyhave successfully built a broad international platform,almost exclusively through master franchise model, as evidenced by their 3,726international stores in more than 60 countries.They have significant long-termgrowth opportunities in international markets where theyhave established aleading presence. In their current top ten international markets, believethat storebase in total for these ten markets is approximately half of the total long-termpotential store base in those markets. Store-level economics of business model,the growinginternational demand for delivered pizza and the strong globalrecognition of the Domino’sPizza brand. International stores have produced
positive quarterly same store sales growth for 60 consecutive quarters.SegmentoverviewIt operates in three business segments:Domestic stores-Domestic stores segment consists of domestic franchise operations, which overseenetwork of 4,558 franchise stores located in the contiguous United States, anddomestic Company-owned store operations, which operate network of 489Company-owned stores located inUnited States;Domestic supply chain-.Domestic supply chain segment operates 17 regional dough manufacturing andfood supply chain centers, one supply chain center providing equipment andsupplies to certain of domestic and international stores and one vegetableprocessing supply chain center.• International segment-International segment oversees network of 3,726 international franchise stores inmore than60 countries. International segment also distributes food to a limitednumber of markets from six dough manufacturing and supply chain centers inAlaska, Hawaii and Canada (four).VISION:-The vision of the domino’s pizza is to being the number one in pizza.Domino’s pizza provides 30 minutes home delivery of pizza andproduce the best for the less . They make effort to make them numberone in pizza and now they have 227 domino’s pizza in India and 9000all over world. • Training of personnel:- Fast food restaurant managers are responsible for ensuring that the restaurant runs smoothly. Responsibilities include personnel and employee supervision, food preparation and sanitation, customer service and other duties as they
arise. Fast food restaurant managers should be organized, perform well underpressure, enjoy working with food and have strong customer service skills.Education and Training. • Fast food managers generally have a high school diploma or GED and may have additional food service education. Managers working in a chain restaurant complete a training program specific to their company and receive several weeks or months of on-the-job training. Personnel Functions • Fast food managers are responsible for hiring, scheduling, training and supervising employees. Depending on the size of the restaurant, they may also manage and train assistant managers and crew leaders. In some restaurants, managers are responsible for payroll, periodic employee reviews and disciplinary action. Food Preparation and Management • Managers oversee all aspects of food preparation, including cold prep, cooking, storage and disposal of food. They also ensure that orders are being completed timely and served properly. They may also inventory and order food and supplies. Customer Service • Fast food managers ensure that the restaurant and its employees are providing good service to customers, including completing and serving orders quickly, being courteous and efficient and keeping the restaurant, restrooms and parking areas clean. Managers also respond to customer comments and complaints. Work Schedule • Fast food managers may work any shift, including evenings, weekends and holidays. Mangers may work long hours to compensate for staffing issues, and must sometimes change their work schedule on short notice.
Earnings • Earnings vary based on experience, restaurant chain and location. According to the Bureau of labor Statistics, as of 2008, the median annual wage for fast food and limited service restaurant managers was $41,320. • Planning of forms of data collections:-Definition of a databaseData is information.A database is a collection of data, which is usually organized through a programsuch as Microsoft Access. Examples of a database include search engines such asGoogle and Yahoo, wiki’s such as Wikipedia, video streaming sites such as Youtube, timetables and telephone directories.Advantages of a Database:Data is easily retrieved from a database because it is in some form of order. Usingthe phone book is easy because the names are in alphabetical order. Imagine if thenames in a phone book were not in any order. How long would it take to find thenumber for Domino’s pizza?Data Types:A database is organised with the following types of data. (Largest to smallest.)Database-Container for various types of data eg. Graphics or textRecord-A database record stores the entire data describing one item in the databaseField-A database field is a single complete piece of data from a record: for example aname or telephone numberCharacter-
Most fields contain data made up of characters that represent keyboard symbols.Most information is stored in this formEach field must contain a specific data type; that helps the computer validate thedata. The different types of data that can be entered into a field are:· Text – Text can be used to store any keyboard characters. Examples fields are‘name’ and ‘address’. A limitation of text is that it is restricted to 256 characters.· Number- which is best for items that will be used in formulas, such as calculatingtotals or averages. Example fields are ‘age’, ’height’ and ‘test mark’.· Yes/no- (or true/false), which may be used for anything that can have a ‘yes’ or a‘no’ value. Example fields are ‘payment overdue’ or, ‘Gold Class member’.· Date/time- Allows records to be sorted into calendar order. Example fields are‘birthday’ and ‘membership renewal date’.· Currency- which is similar to the number data type but is displayed with thecurrency symbol ($) and usually with two decimal places. Example fields are‘amount owing’ and ‘membership fee’.· Memo- unlimited characters.· OLE (object link embedding)- you can copy to a clipboard can be entered into adatabase e.g. pictures, video· Hyperlink- A link to almost anything.Planning your Database:-When planning your database, consider what you want to do and the type of datacontained in the database. These fields will be used to search your database for thefollowing informationField Name & Data typeNavigating an electronic database:-In a database we have a number of different objects available to us. At school youwill probably only ever use the 4 objects.Tables-Tables are where you set up the database fields and their propertiesQueries-Queries allows us to extract the exact data we want from the databaseForms- Forms are used to enter data into the databaseReports-Reports allow us to print the data we want from the databaseDatabase Inputs and OutputsIt is important to credit the source of the data when it is not your own invention.This can be done in the description part of the form view.
Data Input and Error CheckingThere are two main types of checks; (1) Validation check and(2) Verification Check.(1) Validation Check is used to check for errors such as:• Wrong types of data (Entering numbers instead of text.)• Data values that are too big or too small (Like attempting to type more than 256words in text.)Most DBMS validate data automatically.(2) Verification Check means checking data for accuracy. This is harder to operatethat Validation Check because it checks if all the entered information is correct.• Typing and spelling mistakes• Incorrect valuesData verification is usually performed on word (Spell Check.) However,verification checks must be manually operated one by one and are very slow andtime-consuming when you are performing the check yourself. In business, thecustomer usually verifies his/her own data.Database OutputsForm View• A form view displays all the record on a single file.• The form view spreads the field out to make it easier to read.• Form views often have heading, labels and other items.• Form views are used to enter data.List/Table View• A list/table view displays many separate records on the same screen.• Every row is a single complete record and every column is a field.• It is used to enter or edit data.Report View• Reports are lists of records and selected fields and usually show the result of asearch.• Reports are usually printed.• The DBMS that creates reports is called the Report Generator.Avoiding common data collection mistakes:- • Wrong focus – too much emphasis on periodic, global “needs assessments,” not regular work, specific applications. • Field work – populist census rather than a sample. Undifferentiated forms/surveys by audience. Inadequate campaign management.
• Response management – unclear thought on (in)tangible incentives. Accepting chronic participation. • Communication – not sharing results in a transparent manner “whats in it for the respondent” is being part of the process. • Surface level analysis – week conclusion err on slide of being “objective”/looking at trees, not forest. Little consideration of buyers. • Interpretation – be receptive to bad news. focus on actionability internal approach to mind details or reject counterintuitive findings. • Self life – insufficient use of study after first presentation :not retaining data for ongoing applications, foundation for new studies. Budget Allocation:- Once the marketing objectives and strategies of Domino;s pizza are agreed, it become possible to cost out the various programmes for the contributing marketing activites. The nature of advertising input, sales staffs, distributions and so on can be determined and budgets allocated accordingly. The output of total process of domino’s pizza is strategic marketing plan covering a period between 3 and 5 years plan.Section: B- Systems Design of MIS inDomino’s pizza
The design of an MIS cannot be carried out in an unplanned fashion.The different groups of tasks and the cost of design make it a majorproject. The conceptual design outlines the structure of the MIS andindicates the performance requirements for those who will develop thedetailed design. Since it establishes the broad outlines of the MIS, themanagers who are going to make use of it should have a major role inthe development and evaluation of alternative concepts. Domino’srecognize the fundamental business problems and objectives of theMIS. The system constraints can be environmental, basic business, ortechnical. The management is mainly responsible for describing thefirst two. Design the application architecture: The detailed design of the MIS begins after the conceptual framework has been devised. The detailed design starts in Dominos with the performance specifications provided by the conceptual design and ends with a set of specifications for the construction of the MIS. If the operating system is not going to be changed, the design of the MIS should be developed in association with the design of the operating system.The systems design phase is generally broken into two sub phases, top-level design and detailed design. Top-level design consists of theidentification of the major system components and their functions. Inorder to specify the top-level design, a number of alternative systemdesign concepts are synthesized and evaluated in terms of a variety ofselection criteria, which include cost (implementation, operation andmaintenance), performance, satisfaction of requirements, developmentrisk, flexibility for expansion/upgrading, and political acceptability.The important aspect of top-level design is to present several feasiblesolutions to the system managers and users, to describe their
advantages and disadvantages, and to obtain a consensus on a preferreddesign concept. An example of a design decision is the decisionconcerning which functions should be implemented using computersand which should be manual (e.g., should data collected at a regionallevel and needed at a central level be transmitted via the Internet (e.g.,virtual private network or e-mail) or hand-carried on a memory stick).Detailed design consists of specifying all of the system components andfunctions in detail. In the detailed design phase, decisions are madeconcerning what data elements are to be collected, how they are to becoded, how frequently they are to be collected, and at what levels ofdetail they are to be aggregated. A critical design decision concernsthe "units of analysis". The decision on the unit of analysis has asignificant impact on both the cost of the system operation (especiallythe data collection burden) and on the flexibility of ad-hoc reporting.This design decision is particularly important. While it is an easymatter to revise a data entry screen or report format, it is not possibleto produce a desired report about a particular type of unit if data onthat unit are not included in the data base. Design the system database: A complete description of the detailed design cannot be given, as design work is a creative and problem-solving activity. The systems approach to problem solving uses a systems orientation to define problems and opportunities in Dominos and develop solutions. Every organization needs to make a decision on whether to develop the IS in-house or buy it from external sources. These kinds of decisions are called make-or-buy decisions. For a software sub system in Dominos pizza, the structured analysis / structured design approach involves the use of techniques such as data flow diagrams, functional decompositions, and structure charts.
The data are stored in a set of tables. The table rows aregenerally called “records,” and the table columns aregenerally called “fields.” It is necessary that the entitiesstored in the database have unique identifiers, called “keys.”For a database to be in first normal form, each field is“indivisible” – it contains a unique type of information, andthere are no “repeating groups” of information. Forexample, one field would not contain a person’s completeaddress (street address plus city) and another field his city –the address would be split into two fields, one containing thestreet address and another containing the city.Furthermore, a record would not contain multiple fieldsrepresenting successive product sales – each sale would bestored in a “Sales” table, identified by an appropriate key(linking it to other data tables). For a database to be insecond normal form, each table must have a uniqueidentifier, or primary key, that is comprised of one or morefields in the table. In the simplest case, the key is a singlefield that uniquely identifies each record of the table. (Whenthe value of a primary key of a table is stored in anothertable, it is called a “secondary key.”) The non-key fieldsprovide information only about the entity defined by the keyand the subject of the table, and not about entities in othertables. For example, data about the population of the city inwhich a person lives would not be included in a table ofhouse addresses, because city population is an attribute ofcities, not of house addresses. For a database to be in thirdnormal form, each non-key field must be functionallydependent on the key, that is, the values of the keycompletely determine the values of the non-key fields. Saidanother way, each non-key field is relevant to the record
identified by the key and completely describes the record, relative to the topic of the table. Most commercial relational database systems require that the database be in third normal form. In some cases, to improve efficiency, a database may be de normalized (e.g., by storing an element of data in two fields), but this should be rarely done (and code should be included in the database to ensure that data integrity is maintained (e.g., in this example by updating the redundant data on a regular basis, and making sure that all queries and reports use the latest data)). Design the system interface: The system design phase specifies what computer equipment is to be used. Because of the very high computing power (fast speed, large memory, long word-length) of current-day microcomputers, the large capacity of hard drives, the tremendous variety and capabilities of available application software, and the reasonable cost of hardware and software, current microcomputer-based systems will be able to accomplish many of the desired system requirements at acceptable cost and level of complexity. Because of the large diversity of choice, however, and because the acquisition and training costs are not negligible, it is necessary to carefully consider the alternatives and make a good selection. Experience with a wide variety of software and hardware is a valuable asset in guiding the hardware/software selection process. The significant processing capabilities of microcomputers makes them appropriate candidates for many practical MIS applications. Major categories of software involved in a microcomputer-based MIS system are database software, spreadsheet / presentation graphics, and statistical analysis packages
Packaging design specification: Depending on the system size and number and location of users, networking may be a useful option. Larger applications may exceed the processing capabilities of microcomputer-based systems, in which case larger (e.g., minicomputer-based) systems may be appropriate. The following paragraphs mention some practical aspects of system design.• System Size. Modern microcomputers are so powerful that most MIS applications can be done using commercial off- the-shelf (COTS) microcomputers (e.g., those using the Microsoft Windows operating system). Previously, a major constraint on system size was the computer word length. About the only reason for using a large database management information system such as Oracle is advanced features, such as security.• Selection of Software. For most applications, the choice is between using a very expensive system, such as Oracle, or a very inexpensive one, such as Microsoft Access or SQL Server. Another option is to use open-source (free) software, such as My SQL. For most applications, the Microsoft Access database system is a good choice. Microsoft introduced its Access database management system in 1997, and introduced major upgrades in 2000 and 2003. The 2000 version was prone to fail (catastrophic “freezes” with no way to repair the system but to go back to a much earlier version) for larger applications, but the 2003 version was quite stable. The newer versions introduced in 2005 and 2007 are very similar to the 2003 version. Until recently, Microsoft included Access as one of the modules of
its Office suite (with Word processor, Excel electronic spreadsheet, PowerPoint presentation slides, and Outlook e- mail system). The cost of the entire suite was only a few hundred dollars, so the cost of the Access system was essentially zero (since few purchasers used this module, and purchased the suite for the other programs). Recently, Microsoft has “unbundled” the Access system, so that it must be purchased separately in some instances. Even so, the cost is just a few hundred dollars, for a standalone or small-network system.Recently, Microsoft has decided to discontinue further development ofAccess, with the goal of shifting users to the SQL Server. A freeversion of SQL Server (SQL Server 2007 Express Edition) is available,but the cost of the full product is much higher than Access. This is avery unfortunate move for consumers, given the tremendous power andease-of-use of Access. After ten years of development (from itsintroduction in 1997), it had evolved to a reliable, easy-to-use system,and it is a shame to see Microsoft withdrawing support for it. SQLServer is not a good substitute for Access. It may be more powerful insome respects, but it is much less easy to use (and more expensive).Although open-source software is free to acquire, there are other costsinvolved. There are two major drawbacks associated with it. First, themajor open-source database system is My SQL, and it is a very“primitive” system. It is programmed using the SQL language, anddoes not contain the useful database development tools that Microsoftand other proprietary systems contain. It is hard to use. The seconddrawback is that the pool of personnel who are familiar with open-source software such as My SQL is much smaller than the pool ofpersonnel who are familiar with.
• Microsoft systems such as Access. In a developing- country context, this can present serious problems. A firm will typically have a more difficult time recruiting information- technology staff who are familiar with open-source systems than with Microsoft systems. This situation will result in higher staffing and training costs. Query Design. The major factor affecting database performance is the quality of the design of the queries (procedures used to retrieve data). In a relational database system, queries are implemented using the SQL programming language. Systems such as Access have automated tools for constructing queries, called “query builders.” If a query is not properly constructed, the time to retrieve the data could be many hours instead of a few seconds. I was once asked to consult on a project in Egypt, where the performance of a database had declined over the two years since its installation to the point where routine queries that had once taken seconds to donow took hours. The problem was that the developer had tested the system on a small data set, and had not examined the system performance for large (simulated) data sets. As the set increased over the years (as data were added to the database), the time required to retrieve data increased to completely unacceptable levels. I had a similar experience in Malawi, where the simple process of entering data (done by a few data-entry clerks) was bringing the system (a state-of-the art dual processor computer and an Informix application) to its knees.There are two things that must be done, in order to keep query timesfast. The first is to create “indexes” for keys that are used in theprocessing of data. The second is to perform all “selects” and“aggregates” before performing any table “joins.” (A “select” is theprocess of selecting records from a table; an “aggregation” is the
process of aggregating data in a table, such as calculating totals ormeans of subsets; a “join” is the process of combining data fromdifferent tables (which are related by keys). The process of joiningtables can be very time-consuming for large tables. In an uncriticalapproach to constructing a query, the user may construct a single SQLstatement that includes the selection, aggregation and joining. Forlarge tables, such queries can require much time, even if the keys areindexed. It is important to break the query into a series of simplerqueries, such that the join is made on as small a table as possible. Mostqueries do not involve accessing all of the data in the database. Ifindexing is done and if selections and aggregations are performedbefore joins, the tables to be joined are often small, and the query isvery fast. Expensive database systems such as Oracle make a big dealout of “optimizing” SQL statements, and they charge massive amountsof money for such systems. This is wasted money.In all cases, an analytically minded database user can break a query intoa series of simpler queries and accomplish the same level ofperformance. There are many other factors to be considered in conducting thedetailed design of a management information system, such as whetherdata should be archived year by year or included in a single largedatabase (to facilitate time series analysis); whether the data should beentered at a central facility or on-line via many distributedworkstations (e.g., in different districts); procedures to be used forprimary data collection (e.g., questionnaires); data-cleaning routines;and security.Section: C- MIS Implementation ofDomino’s pizza
Construction of MIS:In Domino’s pizza the construction of MIS is done by the differentpersonnel in 3 different phase in which the MIS is code and design indifferent computer language. • System Analyst: The system analyst of Domino’s pizza clarifies business requirements to be implemented by programmes. • System Designers: Here the designer of Domino’s pizza may have to clarify the design, integration requirements and programme documentation that is used in writing and testing the programme. • System builders: The system builders of Domino’s pizza will assume the primary responsibility for writing and testing the application software. Testing of MIS:The pizza industry is a highly competitive mature market. There aremany pizza’s makers ranging from local pizza to international franchise.With the current health kick in today’s society aswell as economicdownturn, many companies are being forced to make healthier, cheaperproduct. It is doubtless that Domino’s pizza has important strengthsthat help to cope with uncertain and ever changing environment butthey should try to take the most of the opportunities in the near futureas well as to attempt to reduce the impact of its threats over itsperformance. Domino’s pizza do not have specific weakness but the lackof organic pizza limits the target market which become more of an issuelately. The phone application of Domino’s pizza was firstly tested by
