Summary
The objective of this project is to create a system that displays information relating to the performance of the School of Computing. Initially, a list of statistics that are appropriate to display in the system must be constructed. Historical information, held within various electronic files for various statistics, must also be incorporated with current data in the system. Output should be in the form of dynamically generated images where appropriate. The development is intended to be an extension to the current system in use on the School of Computing Intranet, and may be used by any member of the department.
A web-based system has been implemented and incorporates statistics that reflect upon a variety of areas of School activity. Historical data has been fully integrated and is retrieved alongside current data. The display of dynamically generated images, constructed from the retrieved data, is also managed by the system. As a result of this, the implemented system meets the original objectives of the project and surpasses the minimum requirements. Functionality is added to the system through selectable date ranges available, where appropriate, on statistics.
