Systems Understanding Aid (SUA) Project (due in class at the final exam) This project is designed to provide practice using flowcharts and processing accounting documents. You will manually execute processes in an information system that records data and transforms it into information. Overview: For this project, you will complete various accounting documents associated with a series of transactions. Instructions: Begin by reading and following the directions in the Instructions, Flowcharts and Ledgers booklet contained in the SUA packet. We will be going through the transactions in chronological date sequence (this is “Option 2” on page 11 of the Instructions ). Use the BLUE Transaction List (Doc. #1) that came with your SUA. I recommend destroying the Green transaction sheet because you will NOT need it for this project. Additional Comments: As you work through the flowcharts, you will see that there are places where two or more documents are filed together and there is an Annotation of “Documents attached together” (for an example, see the Sales flowchart on page 19 of the Instructions booklet). Use a stapler to attach documents together (do not use paper clips or other means to attach the documents together) and attach them in the proper order as indicated in the related flowchart. Also, some documents have multiple copies (e.g., a Sales Invoice has 4 copies), so be sure to use the correct copy when following the flowcharts. On the Receiving Reports and other documents, I will NOT check to see if the “Prepaid”, “Collect”, “COD”, or other shipping terms are marked. The SUA is not clear in describing these, and I will not grade them. If you are going to initial something on a document to indicate approval for something specific, you should do so near the part you are approving. For example, if you are approving the granting of credit on a purchase order, you should place the initials by the credit terms. Likewise, if you are approving something on a document that you had to change by hand, you should place the initials near the change.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
