2Car WorkshopINTRODUCTIONThe car workshop is a viable business that is operated with the help of the employees that areworking there and the tools that are required by the employees. All the things in the workshop are managed with the help of the traditional file management system. This system alsoprovides the workshop a considerable growth. But nowadays computers are taking the placeof the file for storage mechanism and provide the considerable amount of security. In theworkshop, the number of employees and the workload is increasing day by day. To cope upwith the need for managing the data in the proper manner computer-based approach is chosenover the traditional approach. As computer-based approach is much better than filemanagement system. The computer-based approach is also known as database approach.FILE BASED APPROACHThe file-based system is also known as the traditional approach. In this approach, the flat filesare used as the storage medium for the data. These flat files are managed by the file systemwhich is controlled by the operating system’s control.To access the flat file, the application program must go through the file system. Followingdiagram shows the mechanism in flat files.

The data that is stored in the file is also known as flat data. The files containing datacan be the text file, plain file, and binary file. To get the data from the file, the file must becompletely read by the memory to give the desired result. The file system is useful for smalland the simple database. Nowadays more sophisticated database is built which are notsuitable for the file management system. The sophisticated database is not meant for theflat files. As the increase in the demand of the data storage and its maintenance moresophisticated approach is required that provide the consistency among the data stored in
