This project examines the development of a computerized database with online access for StaffWorks, Inc. The project utilizes Unified Modeling Language (UML) models and tools to articulate the scope, purpose, and benefits of the new database. StaffWorks, Inc. is currently operating with an inefficient system of creating and storing applications. Candidates currently have to come to the office and fill out a paperbased application. Completed applications are stored in the candidate's file, and filed away for later use. There is a huge opportunity for optimization of this system in order to be more efficient. Many benefits come from switching from a paper-based system to a computerized system that allows online data entry. Overall, the underlying purpose of this project is to save a substantial amount of time through the utilization of technology.


A thesis submitted in partial fulfillment of the requirements of the University Honors Program, University of South Florida St. Petersburg.
