    Diploma thesis focuses on planning and developing a group of software components and their relationships which combined with laser foot scanners could change the way footwear is bought in retail stores. We call this system a network of foot scanners and it consists of: • Graphical user interface for the scanner • Network connection between scanners and central location • Administration software for scanners and articles, • Gathering and processing measurements • Website for new line of products with features like measurement viewing and shoe size advice. In Alpina, d. o. o. (hereafter Alpina) we already tried to develop several such systems therefore planning can be based on real life examples and experiences. Introduction starts by explaining the main peculiarities of footwear shopping and how a foot scanner can change the process. We fail to find satisfactory scanners on the market and try to justify that with listing their missing qualities. We also take a quick look in the development of suitable scanner in Alpina, which is used as basis for our network. Next, requirements and specifications are gathered for every component in the scanner network and then followed with more detailed planning description. During planning we expose various problems and describe possible methods for solving them. We make use of UML techniques and include solutions from practical applications. All this brings us to complete implementation plan for every component in the scanner network. Conclusion backs up the acquired plan with results and problems of real life implementation.
