NEW ALGORITHMS IMPROVING THE WORK OF AN INFORMATION SYSTEM FOR THE BAILIFFS OFFICE
Ciechański P., Bąkała M., Bąkała A.

Abstract:

The use of ICT enables enterprises to increase their overall efficiency and makes them more competitive. Bailiff office can be an example of a firm not from ICT branch, but widely using new information technologies. The idea of this paper is to show some modifications of existing algorithms of an information system for a bailiffs office to enhance its efficiency. This concerns selected processes essential for efficient work of the office. In the first part of the paper the needs and the opportunities of information technologies for the bailiffs are shown. The necessity of EDI use especially in a bailiffs office has been pointed. Some work areas of the application Komornik SQL where efficiency problems appear have also been presented. These caused lower work of the whole team. Then solutions tending to eliminate human error and manual data introducing as well as its verification have also been described. Four algorithms improving the mentioned system are presented.

Key words:

Introduction

Until the mid-1990s, the electronic data interchange was rather a rarely heard phenomenon amongst bailiffs in many european countries. This applied not only to the acquisition of the information required for executing judgements or execution orders, but also for performing tasks such as attachments management. Traditionally, bailiffs simply applied for and received the information they required from the authorities to perform their tasks (such as verifying addresses with the municipality or tracing assets via a debt collection agency) in written form . Nowadays computerization reaches even the most hermetic and specific law areas such as bailiffs offices. Thanks to that the bailiffs can perform part of their duty electronically much faster and with lower costs.
Increasing number of formalities connected with the execution management, and the increasing number of debtors, involve much greater demand for IT solutions allowing to standardize and speed up the process of enforcement. Another demand is the elimination of errors associated with the amount of data and human mistakes.
The aim of this article is to indicate some problems appearing while using selected IT tools dedicated for the bailiffs office. As the exemplary IT tool the application Komornik SQL has been chosen. The authors suggest possibilities of improvement in areas that have been indicated. The methodology bases on Rapid Application Development (RAD) designed to ensure that developers build the systems that the users really need [6]. Thus before introducing any improvements, the authors gathered some information about the application from the bailiffs office employers using it in practice.
In this article first some IT tools for the bailiffs offices in Poland are described. Special attention was paid to the application Komornik SQL. Then some weaknesse of it are shown, in four areas: the method of sending notices of the execution initiation, the process of treatment of each case, problems with the connection to the main portal EPU and he process of scanning documents for the program. In the next section some suggestions of solving the above problems are presented.

Summary

The example of an IT tool for the baliffs office - Komornik SQL allowed to point out some areas that seemd to slow down the work of the whole office, especially when the number of cases was bigger than one hundred thousand.
With the use of described programming tools the application has been equipped in new functionality.
In this paper selected applications and scripts to improve the bailiff's office work have been described. Some inconviniences of operating a program for the bailiffs
Komornik SQL (from the users point of view) are pointed and solutions improving the work of the system are given. Better efficiency of selected processes means better work of the whole bailiffs office, thus it is a matter of big importance from the economical point of view as well.
In the first part of the article, some block diagrams showing the start state of using the program Komornik SQL have been shown. New algorithms, improving the work of the system are described. All block diagrams showing their work will be presented in a separate piece of work. It is essential to compare the results obtained with the use of new algoritms with the standard method using the program Komornik SQL. The efficiency tests are also to be carried out in further works.

NOWE ALGORYTMY USPRAWNIAJĄCE PRACĘ SYSTEMU INFORMATYCZNEGO DLA KANCELARII KOMORNICZNYCH


Streszczenie:

Wykorzystanie technologii informatycznych w przedsiębiorstwie przyczynia się do zwiększenia jego efektywności, a co za tym idzie – wzmocnienia konkurencyjności. Nowoczesne technologie ułatwiają działalność w niemal każdej gałęzi gospodarki. Przykładem firmy funkcjonującej poza obszarem ICT, ale mogącej szeroko wykorzystywać technologie informatyczne, jest kancelaria komornicza. W artykule przedstawiono propozycje poprawienia wydajności systemu informatycznego dla kancelarii komorniczych Komornik SQL poprzez zastosowanie nowych algorytmów wybranych procesów. W pierwszej części artykułu omówiono potrzeby i możliwości technologii informatycznych usprawniających pracę kancelarii. Wskazano na potrzebę wykorzystywania elektronicznej wymiany danych w szczególności w pracy kancelarii komorniczych. Następnie zaprezentowano obszary działania systemu Komornik SQL, w których pojawiają się problemy z wydajnością, przekładające się na spowolnienie pracy całego zespołu ludzi. W dalszej kolejności zaproponowano zastosowanie rozwiązań dążących do wyeliminowania błędów ludzkich oraz ręcznego wprowadzania, tudzież weryfikacji danych. Omówione zostały cztery algorytmy usprawniające wspomniany system informatyczny.

新算法改進信息系統的工作,為執達主任辦事處

摘要:利用信息通信技術使企業能夠提高他們的整體效率,使它們更具競爭力。執達主任辦事處可以是一個公司的例子不是從信息和通信技術的分支,可廣泛利用新的信息技術。本文的目的是展示一個信息系統的一個法警辦公室現有的算法進行一些修改,以提高其工作效率。這涉及選擇辦公室高效工作必不可少的過程。在本文的第一部分信息技術為執需要和機會被示出。 EDI的使用,特別是在一個法警辦公室的必要性已經指出。應用Komornik SQL地方出現效率問題的一些工作領域也已經提出。這些造成了整個團隊的較低的工作。然後溶液趨向於消除人為錯誤和手動數據引入以及其驗證也已被描述。四種算法提高了系統所提呈現。
