Helping cops speed up office work [DNA : Daily News & Analysis (India)]
(DNA : Daily News & Analysis (India) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) "Students of Malwa Institute of Technology (MIT) are developing an software to help city police speed up its departmental work and simultaneously make their office virtually paper free. The students are working on the project for the office of SP (East).
Explaining the rationale behind the project, Dikshant Tiwari, a member of the software design team said the working of police involved a lot of paperwork. "Registering complains, taking actions and finally deadline reminders--- the working is hectic as copies of every complaint have to be made and forwarded," he said.
"The software we are developing will reduce work load by automatically forwarding any update in the system to the entire office prompting immediate action on complaints registered. Automatic deadline reminders, easy serial number search, recognition of inefficient worker and security of data are some of the other benefits of automation," said another team member Deepesh Chouhan.
"I have allowed the students to design the software but no contract has been signed. We will consider the software and take a decision on it after carrying out real time testing in our office," said SP (east) O P Tripathi.
The MIT students took up this task of software design as part of their project work. Chouhan and another student Kamaldeep Singh met Tripathi at police headquarters and proposed to him their idea of developing 'Easy Tracking Police Software'.
The team analysed police office system for four days and formed a data flow diagram. Singh converted the information into charts. Their colleague Kapil Bablani derived the software aspects from the chart.
Developing the software required coding, designing and documentation. Chouhan and Singh took charge for coding. "We had learnt Java as a coding language as a part of our syllabus but developing system software required knowledge of C#" said Chouhan.
MIT assistant professor Antariksha Somani encouraged students and helped them learn basics of C#. "We decided to design the looks of the home page with new textures to make it interesting for users," said Bablani.
Tiwari said the graphic and web design tools had to be used as they aimed to provide a dynamic internal web application. Documentation was taken care of by Jayashree Bodkhe. "I worked with everyone to create summary of the software," said she. MIT students are now working overtime to complete the software.
