1.2 Statement of the Problem
Nowadays, many restaurants manage their business by manual especially take customer ordering. . In traditional booking system, a customer has to go to restaurant or make a phone call in order to get his meal reserved. Today, restaurant waiter takes the customer ordering by manual system with using paper. Customer does some formal conversation like hello, hi, etc. Than he demands for today’s menu and do some discussion over menu items then he orders. It takes 5 to 10 minutes to book the order and waiter book the order on paper so there is probability of lost and duplication of customer information. Restaurant management system puts the order in a queue with specific priority according to time and quantity, and then a cook is assigned for the specific order to complete it.
Besides, the restaurant waiter information also by manual system kept use paper and this is difficult for restaurant administrator to find waiter information, probability missing the paper and difficult to arrange the schedule. Initial problem is that the customer has to get connected over the phone; it would be harder if the restaurant is very popular and busy. Sometimes, waiter information and customer information is important to restaurant administrator for reference in the future. The chances of committing mistakes at the restaurant side in providing a menu list for a specific time would be more.
