I'd like to know how I can design this - any help/alternate ideas with the design and structure will be highly appreciated.
If you were my boss or a client (same thing really) presenting me with this requirement I'd call this an incomplete program spec.
- is this a command line application or a web application
- are we printing reports or emailing them?
- what is the user interface for entering data?
- is there a database involved?
- if not a database what type of repository?
and from the answer to those questions would probably generate more.
