can anyone come up with a system idea to help me out?
My brief is that i have to design a system which deals with trains and refunds for customers when a train is late. This system has to involve a ticket being the proof that the train was late and then the customer can present he ticket in front of that staff and get a refund. The arrival info can be put on the ticket by a machine, but iam not sure when? and what info should be put on the ticket?
basically i have to decide on a system of how this policy could be introduced and then idetify possible weaknesses and also comment on how these weaknesses could be combatted.
my initial idea is to have a system where you but your systandard ticket as usual, then when the train arrives you stamp your ticket in amachine and it stamps what time it is and thus if the time is 15 minutes after the arrival time then when you reach the other end you can get a 15 minute refund. is this sensible or do you think it coul dbe asily exploited?
ANY OTHER IDEAS OF SYSTEMS WOUL DBE GREAT, also in the brief the system can be distributed e.g can link across networks etc if that helps!!!
