1.0 INTRODUCTION

Within an organization, a range of business processes are functional at operational, tactical and strategic levels within the business structure. Some business processes are quite simplistic, especially at the operational level where routine, non-complex decisions and tasks are undertaken. However as you advance through the levels of an organization, the strategic levels, more complex business processes and decision making is required that may need support from more automated, on-demand information systems and solutions.

Providing office solutions to support a range of business functions and decision making can range from the implementation of a simple rule or macro, through to the design of a more complex piece of code or program to support different end users.

This unit is designed to build upon existing skills and knowledge previously gained from using different types of application and design software. Learners will be expected to demonstrate more advanced skills in terms of data manipulation, configuration, application and implementation of software packages to enhance a given business processes or processes.

On completion of this unit the learner should be able to use design application software at an advanced level of proficiency. Learners will engage with a range of software, and select the most appropriate application(s) to offer feasible and working business solutions.

Teaching and Learning Activities
The module tutor(s) will aim to combine lectures with tutorial activities. This environment will provide opportunities for the student to understand the course material through case study and text and to apply it in a practical way. The intent is to facilitate interactive class activities, and discussion about the significant role of research in a global and local business environment.
2.3 Teaching Ethos
The college’s approach towards teaching and learning is simple and effective. The main aim of UKCBC is to assist learners in maximising their potential by ensuring that they are taught clearly and effectively. This will enable students to engage in the learning environment and promote success in both their academic studies and subsequent career.

2.3.1 Methods of Delivery:
LECTURES:
These will be developed around the key concepts as mentioned in the indicative course content and will use a range of live examples and cases from business practice to demonstrate the application of theoretical concepts. This method is primarily used to identify and explain key aspects of the subject so that learners can utilise their private study time more effectively.
SEMINARS:
These are in addition to the lectures. The seminars are designed to give learners the opportunity to test their understanding of the material covered in the lectures and private study with the help of reference books. This methodology usually carries a set of questions identified in advance. Seminars are interactive sessions led by the learners. This method of study gives the learner an excellent opportunity to clarify any points of difficulty with the tutor and simultaneously develop their oral communication skills.
CASE STUDIES:
An important learning methodology is the extensive use of case studies. They enable learners to apply the concepts that they learn in their subjects. The learners have to study the case, analyse the facts presented and arrive at conclusions and recommendations. This assists in the assessment of the learner’s ability to apply to the real world the tools and techniques of analysis which they have learnt. The case study serves as a supplement to the theoretical knowledge imparted through the course work.
Plagiarism:
Any act of plagiarism will be seriously dealt with according to the colleges and awarding bodies’ regulations. In this context the definition and scope of plagiarism are presented below:
Plagiarism is presenting someone’s work as your won.

5.1 ASSIGNMENT BRIEF SECTION
ASSIGNMENT
Unit Number and title Unit 22/OFFICE SOLUTIONS DEVELOPMENT
Qualification BTEC HND Computing (Level 4)
Term Start Date 22 February 2016
Assignment hand out date 29 February 2016
Deadline/ Hand-in 15 July 2016

Case study
World Wide Publishing Co. Ltd publishes road Atlases which are sold by three different methods:
1. To wholesalers, who in turn sell them on to retailers (Bookshops etc.)
2. To retailers such as bookshops, service stations, shops specialising in Car accessories;
3. To individual members of the public who order directly by phone or mail in response to advertisement.

World Wide Publishing Ltd uses a specialised Accounts package to enter orders, prepare invoices and keep records of Customer accounts. Each day they accept orders by phone, fax, email or regular mail and prepare invoices accordingly. There are normally about 5-15 orders each day. These invoices together with an extra copy of each one, are then mailed the same day to Oxford Warehouse, a separate organisation which stores large quantities of books for hundreds of different publishers.

Oxford warehouse packs and dispatches the books, enclosing one copy of the invoice with the books and keeping the other copy for their records.
A “Picking List” report has to be enclosed with the invoices sent daily to Oxford Warehouse, telling them the total number of each title that has to be dispatched that day. The Warehouse covers several acres and a forklift truck driver has to be sent to collect the correct number of books from the specified bins and take them to the dispatch area where they are packed and collected for delivery by Securicor.

The end of each month World Wide Publishing Ltd receives an invoice from Oxford Warehouse for their services, based on the sales value of books dispatched that month.
The Current System
The user (Mrs. Joanne Bernard, the owner of World Wide Publishing Ltd) was interviewed to ascertain how the current system of producing Picking Lists works, and exactly what are the requirements of the new system.
Mrs. Joanne Bernard does not want any changes to the current method of recording customer orders and printing invoices using the software package sage sterling. However, the Picking List as described above cannot be generated by this system in the format required by Oxford Warehouse, and producing this by hand is time-consuming and prone to error.
At present the Picking List is prepared by adding up the total quantity of each book from invoices and entering the figures on to a photocopied form. Sometimes the Sales clerk uses a spreadsheet as a calculator just to make sure the addition is correct. But there is no set method of preparing the report. Mrs. Joanne Bernard would also like to be able to get instant information on total monthly sales, which is not available from Sage Accounts system in the format in which she would like it. Samples of an Invoice Output from Sage but used as input document for the Picking List, and a copy of the Picking List are as shown below:

Source Document1: Invoices

Source Document2: Current Picking List Report
Objectives of the new System:
The new System should be able to perform the following:
• Allow data from the invoices (Quantity of each book and total invoice value) to be recorded quickly and accurately;
• Calculate totals and produce a picking list from this automatically
• Produce monthly sales summaries
• Produce a chart showing monthly sales over the past year, and indicating predicted sales based on these sales figures
• The system must be robust and easy to use
You have been appointed as a Systems Analyst and Software Developer.
For the purpose documentation you are required to adhere to the following procedure:
1. You must draw a Context Diagram preceded by a table of catalogue of requirements
2. You must draw a Data Flow Diagram (Level 1) outlining the process of ordering, invoicing and dispatching books
3. On this DFD(Level 1) clearly show the boundary of the system with dotted lines
4. Implement the system for the given case study.
5. Include performance indicators as follows:
• It should not take longer than 30 seconds to enter each invoice
• Data entry should be made so simple that the resulting Picking List is 100% accurate
• The Picking List will be produced in one operation by the user – for example selecting from a menu or clicking a button on a customised toolbar
• The monthly sales summary and chart will be produced in a similar way, using a menu item or button.
• The system must cater for any number of titles to be added at a future date as the company expands
• It must be impossible to accidentally erase formulae, headings etc..
• The System should be easy to use for anyone with rudimentary knowledge of Excel
Based on your analysis of the requirements, you should be able to recommend the type of computer system to use both Hardware and Software.
There are two users of this system namely Mrs Joanne Bernard who is not involved in the Data entry and Mrs. Nicholson who will be extensively involved in entering data together with a new recruit, James Sunday.
In terms of the choice of software, you are restricted to using Excel and MS ACCESS and MS Word.

Worksheet Design
The System will be based on two workbooks:
1. A Products workbook containing details of all products
2. A Template containing a number of separate worksheets for data entry, reports and summaries( Detailed design next)
At the beginning of each year the user will be able to open a new workbook based on this Template and enter daily invoice data which will be accumulated day by day over the year. Reports and charts will be produced from this accumulated data by means of options on a Custom Menu stored in the template. In addition a front end menu will enable the user to choose which task they wish to perform e.g., enter data from invoices, print a monthly sales summary or chart. Data to be entered include product number, title, and Bin number and for invoice data this will include date, invoice number, quantity, sales etc.

The application Template will contain 5 sheets as follows:
Sheet1 – Menu: This sheet will act as a front end and will be selected automatically using an autoexec macro when the workbook is loaded. It will have 4 Options: Enter Invoices, View Picking List, Monthly Sales Summary, and Exit

Sheet2 – Invoices: This is where the daily invoices will be entered

Sheet3 – Pick List: This sheet will take the form of the Picking List which will have formulae linking it both to the World Wide Publishing Ltd Atlas Products workbook for the product titles and the Bin numbers, and the Invoices worksheet from where it will get the Totals.
It will be as follows:

Sheet4 – Sales: This will contain all the daily Sales amounts for the current year. It will have just two columns:

Date Amount

The day’s data will be automatically added to this list when the user presses Add to monthly sales button on Invoices sheet

Sheet5 – Monthly: This sheet will hold a PivotTable that will show year-to-date monthly sales. The user can create the PivotTable report by selecting the option monthly sales summary either from a custom menu (Atlas) on the menu bar or from the front end menu. This runs a macro called Monthly Pivot which groups sales totals by month.

The user can produce a chart and trend line from these figures using the standard chart button.
The following are suggested macros that you are required to create:
1. Insert Product
2. Enter Invoices
3. View Picking List
4. Add To Monthly Sales
5. Monthly Pivot
6. Auto-Open(Runs automatically when the Atlas workbook is opened)
7. Auto-Close(Runs automatically when the Atlas workbook is closed)
8. Transfer data to ACCESS Database
9. Mail Merge ACCESS data with Standard Letter in MS Word to send to Customers
10. Make sure to use advanced features such as VLOOKUP and HLOOKUP in your data manipulation

Finally:
1. Test your System
2. Write user and Technical manuals
3. Write evaluation and finish all documentation.
