Abstract

A considerable amount of time is wasted in the process of searching for a missing item and consequently, human schedules are disrupted. This study aimed to design and implement a web-based system for matching losers and finders of personal items using the waterfall model. The modelling language employed in this work was Unified Modeling Language (UML). The server-side was built using the Node.js JavaScript framework to provide backend logic to process information from the client-side and MongoDB database. The client-side was made using Hypertext Markup Language (HTML), cascading style sheet (CSS) and JavaScript. The system was evaluated using alpha and beta testing by module testing and getting feedback from users based on some predefined criteria. The developed system was able to match lost items with efficiency and functionality of 80% and 77%, respectively.
