dc.description.abstract The research project was carried out centred on developing Abnormal Load Advisory System to increase its efficiency in service delivery by automating all the expertise involved into a computerised system. With this understanding the researcher developed the Abnormal Load Advisory dissertation was crafted. The system brings about the history of Ministry of transport and Infrastructural Development as well as its current state. The dissertation emphasises on safety on both the road infrastructure and the road users as it advices the abnormal load vehicle operators on the maximum loads that their vehicles can move on the roads without damaging the roads as well as the other road users. To have a more detailed understanding of the system; interviews were conducted; questionnaires were distributed; observations were made and record inspections were done. Through the research, the organisation’s value and ability to undertake the project was exposed considering the availability of most of the necessary resources which included time, hardware, software and the human resource. After a close scrutiny of the findings, it was discovered that software development tools to be used included PHP, MySQL database, Java Script and Mozilla Firefox browser.Basic system functionalities of the current system describedusing data and process modelling techniques were employed which included data flow diagrams, use case diagrams, entity relationship diagrams, package diagrams and sequence diagrams. Furthermore, design of the new system was described through highlighting menu, interface and output models to be designed. All the logical structures were turned into specific tested instructions executed by computer system. Different change over methods were explored from which one method was selected after considering influencing factors such as risk control, pace of change and need for facilitation of change. A comprehensive user manual was created so that any challenges faced pertaining to how to use the system the users would refer to the manual. The manual compliments the user training that was conducted during the implementation of the system. To take care of user requirements system maintenance will be provided when need arises. en_US
