When a customer has selected the items for checkout, the item is scanned. The system is able to identify the item scanned because of its bar code. The system looks up the price of the item from a prices file. Once all items have been identified, a total price is computed and given to the customer.DFD #3Payroll systemXYZ Corporation would like to implement a new payroll system to automate the current system.
