InfoLab Project

Preliminary Design Using USB Mode


Problem

InfoLab Plus is a web based system that allows the users to log submissions, enter test results and produce reports relating to disease outbreaks in animal populations. It is used for tracking of avian bird flu in Indonesia.
An offline system is data required that provides only the data entry functionality and which synchronizes entered data with the online version when connected to the internet. It will be run on public computers and should be unaffected by viruses or Trojans and should authenticate itself to the online version before uploading data and encrypt uploaded data.


Modules

Basically this system has 2 major modules to do all the processes which are:
  1. Module Entering Submission data.
  2. Module Synchronize data.
    • Upload component.
    • Download component.

Entering Data (Offline Mode)

Used for entering data into the local database. Data is entered using a web browser in a similar manner to the online Infolab plus. The architecture will be similar to an online system but will be run locally. The browser will connect to a local web server which will run the logic to update the local database with form data.


PC boots into USB mode. Use browser with similar interface to Infolab plus
to enter data into database.

User Interface

Urremote's Design

  • Submissions overview (click on the images)

  • Adding a submission

  • Data entry setup

  • Data entry

  • Flowchart

  • Other Alternative for Batch Entry (put the setup and submitting together in one page?)


Note: No more page for Batch Entry setup. Setup and submitting data are all in one page.
