In class, exchange your flowchart with another team and write a narrative of their flowchart. Prepare a written or verbal critique of how well the other team interpreted the flowchart your team prepared. The flowcharts will differ depending on the type and nature of the organization visited. Use the flowcharting conventions and suggestions presented in the chapter to critique the work of others. A4. The following describes the process to execute a credit sale at Willie's Furniture Store. Sales clerks assist customers in locating and pricing merchandise. A sales clerk prepares a sales invoice with an original and three copies. If the merchandise on an invoice is priced differently than the list price, the price change must be approved with a signature by the sales manager. Copy #3 of the sales invoice is filed by the salesperson in a salesperson file. The salesperson walks the customer and the remaining copies of the invoice to the credit approval department where the invoice is checked for mathematical errors by a clerk. The credit manager evaluates the credit standing of the customer, approves or rejects the application based on standard company policy, and marks "credit sale" on the invoice along with the results of the credit evaluation. Invoice copy 2 of credit approved sales is given to the customer. The credit approval department keeps the original copy of the invoice in their files (filed numerically) and sends the other copy to shipping. The shipping department uses their copy as a guide to pull merchandise and deliver it to the customer. The customer is asked to sign the invoice copy as evidence of delivery. The delivery person files the invoice copy by date. Required: (a) Prepare a document/procedure flowchart for the process just described. (b) Prepare a logical data flow diagram for this process. 57 Solutions Manual to accompany Dunn, Enterprise Information Systems: A Pattern Based Approach, 3e

    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.
