A Feasibility Study on Photocopying and General Merchandise

is widely used in business, education, and government. There have been predictions that photocopiers will eventually become obsolete as information workers continue to increase their digital document creation and distribution and rely less on distributing actual pieces of paper. However, photocopiers are undeniably more convenient than computers for the very common task of creating a copy of a piece of paper. As a group we have decided to choose a photocopying center as our nature of business for this feasibility study. Through out our brainstorming, certain ideas were raised as to why we arrived to this kind of business. Our main reason for basing our feasibility study in this kind of business is our clientele. As students, we have considered our own needs. It is inevitable for us to photocopy certain modules for each of our subjects, photocopy research materials for our assignments and other additional information for our lessons and photocopy missed lessons. We have also considered the needs of our teachers, they also have the need to reproduce exams for their students, reproduce reviewers and reproduce their own researches for their lesson plans. Principally, the group has considered the need of our clienteles to photocopy and reproduce important documents.

In 1937 Bulgarian physicist Georgi Nadjakov found that, when placed into an electric field and exposed to light, some dielectrics acquire permanent electric polarization in the exposed areas. That polarization persists in the dark and is destroyed in light. Chester Carlson, the inventor of photocopying, was originally a patent attorney, as well as a part-time researcher and inventor. His job at the patent office in New York required him to make a large number of copies of important papers. Carlson, who was arthritic, found this to be a painful and tedious process. As a result, he was motivated to conduct experiments with photoconductivity. Carlson used his kitchen for his "electrophotography" experiments, and, in 1938, he applied for a patent for the process. He made the first "photocopy" using a zinc plate covered with sulfur. The words "10-22-38 Astoria" were written on a microscope slide, which was placed on top of more sulfur and under a bright light. After the slide was removed, a mirror image of the words remained. Carlson tried to sell his invention to some companies, but, because the process was still underdeveloped ...

Demand for Materials
Since the project operates in central business area, the demand for local materials will not be difficult to obtain. Raw materials can be taken or be bought in nearby stores for stocks.
