Newspaper Delivery System - Informal Specification

This document is an informal specification of a newspaper delivery system which keeps track of our customers (hereafter referred to as households), of newspapers and magazines we carry (referred to as publications), and any subscriptions the households may have. As well, it should keep track of route information for our delivery staff (referred to as carriers), billing information for our finance and sales department, and be able to produce summary information for the top executives.

We list the types of information that must be stored, followed by the functional requirements for that area of the system.
