It handles best. It gives the best ride. And it has some definite construction advantages over the other three. V. RECOMMENDATION OF GAMMA Normally, this simulation cannot be merely a count of rankings on the evaluations made, for the qualities carry different weights. Cost, for example, is the major factor in most such decisions. In this instance, however, weighting is not necessary, for one automobile is the clear leader on all three of the bases used for evaluation. Thus, it would lead in any arrangement of weights. From the data presented, Gamma is the best buy when all cost are considered. The total difference on a purchase of 50 automobiles is a significant $15,114 over the second-place brand. Gamma has a slight edge when safety features are considered. And it is the superior car in handling ease, ride quality, and construction. These facts point clearly to the recommendation that Allied buy Gammas this year. Report Text (4 of 4)

12-19 Diagram of the Structural Coherence Plan of a Long, Formal Report (1 of 2) The first part of the structural coherence plan is the introduction preview. Here the readers are told how the report will unfold. Specifically, they are told what will be covered, in what order it will be covered, and the reasons for this order. Because the report is long and involved, introductions are needed at the beginnings of the major sections to remind the readers where they are in the plan outlined in the preview. These parts introduce the topics to be discussed, point the way through the sections, and relate the topics of the sections to the overall plan

12-20 Diagram of the Structural Coherence Plan of a Long, Formal Report (2 of 2) Conclusions and summaries for each major report section help readers to gather their thoughts and see the relationships of the report topics. Completing the plan, a final conclusion or summary section brings the report to a head. Here, previously drawn section summaries and conclusions are brought together.

    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.
