Text summarization is the process of distilling the most important information from a
source (or sources) to produce an abridged version for a particular user (or users) and task
(or tasks) [2]. By providing a text summarization system that will simplify the bulk of
information and producing only the most important points, the task of reading and
understanding a text would inevitably be made easier and faster. With a large volume of
text documents, a summary of each document greatly facilitates the task of finding the
desired documents and the desired data from the documents. As a solution for the above
matter, this project objective is to simplify the texts from a previous text summarization
system and further reducing the number of words in a sentence, shortening the sentences
and eliminating sentences with similar meanings and also produce grammar rules that
generate sentences that are human-like. The waterfall model is chosen as the project
development life cycle. A detailed research has been conducted during the requirement
definition phase and the system prototype is designed in the system and software design
phase. During the development phase, the coding implementation will be conducted and
the unit testing part will be done throughout that development process. After the entire
unit has been tested, they will be integrated together and the system testing can be done
as a whole. The complete program is put through thorough test and evaluation to ensure
its functionality and efficiency. As the conclusion, this project should be able to produce
a summarized text as the output product and meet the project requirements and
