Hoarding Portal Management (HPM) is made to coordinate the uncentralized and unorganized business of hoardings.  Hoardings are basically used as a medium of advertisement and it expands to big business as it exists from big cities to small towns.


Thought of Hoarding Portal Management System totally revolutionizes the mind of a normal man. Getting all types of information , that one need at their doorstep just on the effort of few clicks of mouse. Hoarding Portal Management System is a System that is going to provide all  facilities to user . Not only Normal User but also administrator is going to get benefit from this system. Apart from managing details of different types of hoardings , agencies available in different regions and cities , different analysis reports from the record can also be fetched.


Hoarding portal Management System is such a System that provides agencies to successfully drive their Business. It provides all the facilities to maintain details, status of each hoardings belonging to different agencies.  More over it provides facility to both its admin as well as Normal User. This software is going to provide daily reports to legacy systems, which are of greater utility to the business.


  • To follow SDLC to develop the system.
  • To develop GUI as per convenience of the user.
  • To implement the physical model, being tested as per the Standards.
  • To document our efforts and analysis in a proper comprehensible manner.


  • To make a responsive, easy to operate, fast and efficient retrieval of information as per the user’s convenience.
  • To provide ease in the maintenance of different types
  • Of details Requirement to user.
  • To make a database that is consistent, reliable and secure.
  • To provide correct, complete, ongoing information.
  • To develop a well-organized information storage system.
  • To make good documentation so as to facilitate possible future enhancement.
  • To provide all the information about Hoarding according to user requirement.

Definitions, Acronyms, and Abbreviations.  


SDLC:   The Systems Development Life Cycle (SDLC), or Software Development Life Cycle in systems engineering and software engineering, is the process  of creating or altering systems, and the models and methodologies that people      use to develop these systems

JSP:  JSP is a server side Java technology that allows software developers to  create dynamically generated web pages, with HTML, XML, or other document types, in response to a Web client request to a Java Web Application container (server).

Use Case:  A use case in software engineering and systems engineering is a description of a system’s behavior as it responds to a request that originates from outside of that system

DFD : It is pictorial representation of the system that how it works.

 The first prerequisites of this system is to do collect details of all the hoarding (region wise)  i.e. location, size from the agencies. Every region is provided some rating and some target t categories are decided to provide facilities of campaigning to user based on the target categories.

General Descriptions:

Product Perspective:

  • HPMS is a independent and totally self contained.
  • Block Diagram of the System is below:

(Diagram is in PDF )

Product Function :

In Hoarding portal Management System, the administrator can   add/update/delete/view  all the records and normal user can only view the records.To Explain about the product functions, we use Use Case Diagram as below:

User Characteristics:

In this system there are two user.

Administrator User(Advanced and Basic):

  • He/she have knowledge of System.
  • He/she handle the system process.
  • He/have rights to entry the records.

Normal User(Registered/Guest):

  • Normal user can not handle the system.
  • He/she can only view the record.

 General Constrints:

                     The Hoarding Portal management system will facilitates the administrator . It will avoid unnecessary paper work. It is easy and manageable software. This system will  maintain the sales, purchase and production records. Only authorized person can use the system. Thus software provides a secure system to handle records. The general constraints can include:

  • It is a large scale system.
  • Only limited information provided by this system.
  • It can be used anywhere with the help of internet.
  • The normal user does not not have rights to check the status of mill.

 Specific Requirements:


The Functions of  system are as follows:

Existing System:

         The existing Hoarding management system is not governed by any centralized body and it is not in an organized way. There are different agencies in a particular city which deals with hoarding, but they lack interaction from normal user. This existing system does not stand with a proper automated system to manage the business.


Proposed System:

The proposed system is going to automate a complete Hoarding Portal Management System. The proposed system will provide following functionalities to its users:

  • A user can view all the agencies and regions where no. of hoardings reside.
  • A registered user needs to login into the system, so that he/she can see or add or modify the various details accessible to him.
  • A user needs an easy to operate system to get all their details about hoardings, bookings and campaigning.
