CHAPTER 1 INTRODUCTION In terms of computing
In terms of computing, the development of technology have unexpectedly turned the means of making the world a much better place to grow in something far greater that one can ever imagine. Things have become more compact, more manageable and more accurate in terms of business, communication, and health are still in the midpoint of continuous discovering new and innovative ways of making life more beautiful and meaningful, being more specific than previous systems made. Today, computing has become more expressible and more powerful in terms of numerical and logical manipulations. Giving an absolute result with just a blink of an eye. Technology have become a very vital tools nowadays, simply from education, business, politics and least likely in beauty pageants and cultural events as well. So much has said, the events has always been in the eye of the viewer.

Every judges will be given a score sheet, provided for by the event organizers to avoid being irregularities about the competition. Once the score sheet has been fully filled up, the results were tabulated and analyzed to give the result.
Performing a paper based tabulation is very vital, tiring, time consuming and lack of security to avoid modification by the official tabulator. The paper based tabulating system is simply not a reliable system. The requirement for calculating the result and keeping the result confidentially is very tough. Secondary to these problem, the developer is propelled to implement an android tabulating app in order to make the task of evaluation an easy, efficient, user-friendly, transparent and secure way of calculating the result.
Statement of the Problem
This study aims to answer the following questions:
1. What are the problems encountered using paper base tabulation system?
2. How can the proposed system improve the present system of municipality of Dulag?
3. How does this proposed system help the people of municipality of Dulag?
4. What is the system used at the present time?
Objective of the Problem
It is assumed that the proposed system:
1. Will be able to determine and solve the problems encountered in the present system.
2. Will minimize the time consumed on the manual tabulation process and to ensure efficiency of results.
3. Will be able to present the result of the event as transparency for the winners, contestants and the people.
4. The manual system will be replaced by a proposed system.
The researcher’s aim is to design and develop a system that would improve the existing system of Dulag, Leyte. In the collection of data, they use a database to store all the information in exact place.
Significance of the study
The result of the study will be of great benefit to the following:
Tabulators. The system will provide the tabulators with some knowledge on the proposed system on how it works. Tabulator will have an easy, efficient and more secure way of tabulating and calculating the results.
