Transaction-Processing System (TPS)
Transaction-Processing Systems process data generated by an organisation's
day-to-day transactions or activities.
Examples of TPS's are pay advice slips, billing systems, invoicing, stock
control and order entry systems.
There are two types of TPS:
* Batch processing: where data is collected as a batch and processed at a
later time, e.g. Bank cheques were usually processed overnight
* Online transaction processing: where transactions are processed as they
are entered, e.g. buying tickets for a performance
