Attendance System
The attendance is the core of education as it decides the participation of student in the day to day
life of any institute. In Institute of Management Studies, Ghaziabad we have two steps of
Attendance monitoring System.

1. Manual Attendance System

2. ERP Attendance system (Online)

Manual Attendance system:

In the present system all work is done on paper. The whole session attendance is stored in
register and at the and of the session the reports are generated. We are interested in generating
report in the middle of the session or as per the requirement because it helps in monitoring the
status of the students. These reports are generated fortnight and sent to Monitoring & Mentoring
Committee which are later forwarded to the respective mentors.

The attendance sheet has a specified standard format issued by the Registrar Office. The faculty
has to submit the Attendance sheet with the Course file at the end of the session.

ERP Attendance System (Online)

The manual attendance system is easy to maintain but it has many disadvantages which are as

Not User Friendly: The existing system is not user friendly because the retrieval of data is
very slow and data is not maintained efficiently.

Difficulty in report generating: We require more calculations to generate the report so it is

generated at the end of the session. And the student not get a single chance to improve their

Manual control: All calculations to generate report is done manually so there is greater chance
of errors.

Lots of paperwork: Existing system requires lot of paper work. Loss of even a single
register/record led to difficult situation because all the papers are needed to generate the reports.

Time consuming: Every work is done manually so we cannot generate report in the middle of
the session or as per the requirement because it is very time consuming.
