Introduction
A computer is a device or machine for making calculations or controlling operations that are expressible in numerical or logical terms. Computers are constructed from components that perform simple well-define functions. The complex interactions of these components endow computers with the ability to process information. If correctly configured (usually by programming) a computer can be made to represent some aspect of a problem or part of a system. If a computer configured in this way is given appropriate input data, then it can automatically solve the problem or predict the behavior of the system. System is a whole compounded of several parts or members, system, literary

The researchers conducted a research on the tabulation matters of the PSU since tabulation system does not still exist. Based on the interviewee and the observation, the researchers decided to promote high quality software and yet efficient to tabulate results. The system will be operated in Windows Based to make it more understandable and user friendly. The judges can determined whatever process he wants to execute. In Purdue University the flow of their system starts with registering contestants, preparing confirmation letters, receipts and mailing labels, as well as tabulating scores can be extremely time-consuming. Purdue’s computerized contest organizer and tabulation program saves time by allowing contestant’s names and addresses, once entered, to be used to prepare registration forms and contest scorecards. Purdue University developed a computerized contest organizer & tabulation system that will greatly reduce the time required to conduct a contest. This helps eliminate problems encountered with judging events.
Computerized tabulation is less likely to result in scoring errors. When processing data by hand, errors may occur when transposing data from scorecards to a master score sheet and when adding scores. By using Purdue’s computerized contest organizer and tabulation program; errors are less likely to occur. Further, the system won’t tabulate final scores if data are missing, thereby giving verification that the data set is complete.
Results are
