Prepare a system flowchart for the following: Toy Wholesaler, Inc. (TWI) purchases toys from various toy manufacturers and resells the toys to local retail shops. TWI's supervisors have given you the following information with regard to part of its information system. A purchase requisition is sent from the inventory system and is received by Tom Piper, a clerk in the Purchasing department. Tom prepares a purchase order from information in the vendor and inventory files and mails it to the vendor. The vendor returns a vendor acknowledgement to Tom indicating the receipt of the purchase order. Tom then sends a purchase order notification to Mary Contrary, a clerk in the Accounts Payable department.When the Receiving department accepts vendor goods, the inventory system sends Mary a receiving report to notify her that the goods have been received. Mary also receives the invoices that are mailed in by the various vendors. Mary matches the invoices with the purchase order notification and the receiving report and updates the accounts payable master file. Mary then sends a payment authorization to the Accounting department. In the Accounting department Willie Winkie prepares and mails a check to the vendor. When the check is issued, the system automatically updates the accounts payable master file and the general ledger.
