PETROL STATION MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
The computer control system (CCS) represents a hardware-software complex for control over equipment of filling stations, retail sale of petroleum products, management of petroleum products and sale of complementary goods. The need of the minimization of the labor of operator of the filling station, simplification of work of a management of filling station, elimination of fraud possibilities are the main reasons for creation of the system.
Control System of Filling Stations, User Interface
Allows to check the condition of the fuel delivery dispensers, reservoirs, equipment.
Thanks to flexibility of adjustments, it is possible to group a desktop in “tabular” style where each fuel delivery dispenser is presented in the form of a separate line or column
Each user of System has a separate record in a database (protected by a key). A record contains a surname, a name, a patronymic, the password, and also access rights. Access rights consist of combinations of permissions:
- Permission to sale fuel
- Permission to sale complementary goods
- Permission to register incoming fuel and complementary goods
- Permission to install counters of fuel delivery dispensers
- Permission to change prices
- Permission to configure the system
The system conducts the protocol of work in which actions of the operator, events, malfunctions, failures of the equipment are recorded and timed.
System supports the “shift operating mode”. This means that at the start of a shift the operator must perform action of “opening the shift”, and at the end of the work – “closing shift”.
In the process of work the operator at any moment of time can obtain information about the sold goods and fuel.
