What the meaning of gap ? gap of the system ? Let me talk a brief story. Someday, an employee, want to take a leave from his office. Just one day leave. What he must do ?

First, he must take a form from personnel department. And then he must fill the column with his leave plan, about date, about number, about his name, etc. The second step is the employee must go to his manager for approval. Manager marking his leave plan, agree or not.

If his manager approve his form, then he go back to personnel department to submit his form. The personnel staff will calculate his form tomorrow, and identify his absent with "leave", base on this form.

When the employee doesn't go to office tomorrow, exactly he doesn't scan his identity-card. And the personnel staff must identify this case. Every employee have their ration for leave. If he "leave" in one day, their ration diminish.

This leave system look like a perfect system. Personnel departement, manager, and employee take their action. But, how if the employee do like this....

First, the employee take a form from personnel department. And then he fulfill all of column with his leave plan. So, he go to his manager for take an management approval.

And then, he should go back to personnel to bring his form. But he make another plan. He go to his friend, and he bring his identity card to his friend. And he keep save his leave form.

Tomorrow, when the employee doesn't go to office,  his friend will scan his identity card. The personnel staff identified that the employee is present. And, his manager not losing the employee, because manager approved the leave form. And the employee doesn't lose his leave ration. This is called exploiting system gap.

How can his friend scan his identity card ? The security guard not watching all of employee scanning process. The guard cannot be sure if all of employee scan their own card. Correct ? Hence, every system needs a ' consciousness ' --awareness of the people-- for being perfect. [] haris fauzi, 22 june 2015
