Foreign studies:

McDonalds

The purpose of this project is to develop a computerized and mobilized food ordering system that can be used to revolutionize the traditional ordering system that currently implemented in majority of the food and beverage industry. The traditional system that using by most of the food and beverage industry is the traditional manual ordering system which means all works and procedures is recorded through manpower manual work and it consist of a huge amount of paperwork that is not effective and efficiency. This cause the business to encounter trouble which regarding human error due to the huge amount of manpower manual work that operating in each business routine. Thus, this computerized and mobilized food ordering system is designed to assist the business routine in term of having better management as well as easier to handle daily business operation.

This system is designed for small medium enterprise food and beverage industry. The chosen methodology for this project is throwaway prototyping methodology. This is because majority of the targeted user do not have the experience in using computerized system in food ordering procedure as they implement traditional ordering system previously. Therefore, this methodology enables developer to communicate with target user through using the prototyping, which can let target user to review, evaluate, visualize and learn about the system before the actual implementation of the final system.

Furthermore, the system is a cross platform system which involve desktop based and mobile phone based which is in Android operating system. It is also the highlighted feature of the system which does not limit the ordering procedures to desktop based as portable and mobility is the current trend. Besides that, with this feature it also provide a degree of level of self service for targeted users’ consumers, as they can place order themselves through using the mobile application.

Xin Chao Interactive Restaurant Menu: An Android Based Application

As a primary tool for sales and communication in a restaurant operation, the study involved the application of technology in innovating traditional paper menu of the Xin Chao Vietnamese restaurant located at High Strip 4, Circumferential Road Bacolod City into an interactive digital menu. In the course of the operation, the manual system of Xin Chao faces some problems such as delays in order taking, thus delay on the delivery of the ordered food. There are also times that wrong orders are given to the customers due to human communication errors. Due to this unorganized ordering system, the restaurant lost many of its customers leading them to close the establishment several times. (Mariano S., et. al., 2014).
