Tom picks up the phone and orders one large pizza. The Pizza Island has a
special “order one large and get a free medium pizza.” In addition to the
pizza, Tom orders 10 pieces of chicken wings, one order of breadsticks and a
bottle of soft drink. Tom’s call came on line one at the pizza place. Jill took
his order (kitchen activity may be added separately), and Doreen delivered
the order (Doreen uses a computerized map to locate the address of
delivery). It happened that this was the last order delivered by Doreen who
settled her account for the day after this delivery. The Pizza Island tracks
the time to take and prepare the order, the time of dispatch to make sure
delivery is within 45 minutes from the end of customer’s call. Theresa, the
manager, collects the cash and checks, runs daily reports, and closes the
daily activity records. One deposit slip is prepared for cash collections every

each activity starts and ends, and who is in charge of carrying out each activity.
