ABSTRACT
This research project proposes a Housing Business System (HBS) on Internet, which is a type of service that applies information technology (IT) to a housing business. Such an IT engenders a venue among housing sellers and housing buyers to meet one another all time at all. Above all, it will help reduce costs on housing advertisements while enhancing the speed for accurate, complete and swift data searching. The HBS consists of 3 main processes: selling, searching and buying. For the selling process this is an operation of the house sellers tasks. The system will store housing data and display them on Internet. The searching process, entails a search for housing data that can be done through a number of methods. Each method offers a specific search with defined searching criteria to obtain a needed outcome. Finally the buying process consists of a prospective housing buyer’s activities regarding housing purchase, carried out in conjunction with a house seller. This research project has developed an HBS prototype utilizing Borland Delphi version 5.0 program as a development tool, and Microsoft SQL Server version 7.0 to manage databases. A system operation is performed via the Internet WWW, using Microsoft Internet Information Services version 5.0 as the web server, and Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE) as the web browser. The system operation adopts the concept of client/server architecture in the form of web-based programming, besides a concept of common gateway interface (CGI) for a connection between the application and web server. For a simulation of the HBS operation, housing data in 6 provinces of Thailand was used; Bangkok, Chiang-Mai, Khon-Kaen, Cholburi, Karnchanaburi and Suratthanee. The data consisted of 600 housing sellers, 600 housing buyers and 3,000 housing data items. It was found that the experiments yielded satisfactory outcomes in terms of accuracy, completeness and reliability apart from the ease and timeliness of the system’s data searching. The HBS is found to operate efficiently and effectively. Hopefully, the proposed HBS prototype will be further developed in a full-fledged form with effective practicality.
