Case study
The proposed case study is for a vehicle service business. The vehicle service business is in need of a
database system that will help it to shift from the manual methods that are currently in use by the
business. The normal business process of the business involves customers making calls to make
appointments for booking vehicle repair services. The business provides different types of services and a
customer can book an appointment for one or more services. On booking for a service, the business
maintains customer records to make it easier to identify new and existing customers. Customer records
are kept in a spreadsheet located in the business’s only computer. The appointments made by the
customers are recorded in post cards. The business also maintain staff records of all the staff members
working at the business premises. For each staff, a set of qualifications is recorded. The qualifications
include the services that the staff can perform. Each service booked for in an appointment is taken care
of by a number of staff who are qualified to perform that service on the vehicle. After the service is
done, the staff can write some notes concerning the service and the status of the service is updated to
complete. After all services booked for a specific appointment are completed, the customer can proceed
to make the payment using any of the preferred payment methods accepted by the business. The car is
then released to the customer and the release date is recorded. The payment done for an appointment
is supposed to be paid in full installments and the customer is not allowed to have a balance before the
vehicle is released.
The business is finding it hard to manage all this information using spreadsheets and documents since
it’s very tedious to track and manage the data for report generation. For this reason, the business
believes that a well-designed database system can be a solution to all their problems and will help them
run the business more efficiently.
Assumptions
The case study is specified based on the following assumptions;
A customer makes appointments for services that are offered at the business. The customer
cannot make an appointment for a service not offered by the business.
The customer has to drop their car after making an appointment and pick their car at the
business premises after the car has been fully serviced.
The customer cannot pick their car if they have not paid total money accrued as a result of
servicing their vehicle. The payment should be a one of payment and should only use one
payment method accepted by the business.

A car owner can own one or more cars. A car can only be owned by one and only one car owner.
A car can be scheduled for one more appointments.
An appointment is made for one or more services. Each of the services making an appointment

An appointment is dealt with by one or more staff.
An appointment results to one and only one payment.
A payment can only be done using one and only one payment method accepted by the business.
