In a college setting the front end is the planning and that would fall to the board of directors and senior management such as the President and Provosts. This group would decide the direction of the college, the type of college (business, liberal arts, arts, etc.), and the level of students required to make the school successful. The level of students would include the optimum number accepted and attending and the criteria for admitting students. The engine is the middle group and would include deans and administrators that handle issues of students and the school such as human resources, admitting, sales, registrar, and department chairs. This group decides everything from classes offered to meet the strategic plan of the college to the size of classes and the schedules of student class offerings during a term. This group also handles the recruitment of the students from the chosen criteria and the issues of discipline, recordkeeping, funding and financial help and student participation issues. Hiring of faculty and staff would be in the control of this group. The back ends are the people involved in the execution of the class and college plans. These would include the professors and staff. It might also include the library and librarians, the science and math lab employees, and student affairs workers. Cumulative charts take the data provided and turn them into charts. Tabular plans are tables that use the basic, the minimum and the maximums of information provided from past data to formulate current pricing or needs. The tabular plans are studied and have the ease of just using specific information to formulate the tables. There are no real outliers to skew the data and the past information is gathered and used in an efficient manner. However, there are no processes in place to consider multiple areas that might need review. Such as, the basic prices vs. the minimum prices. How did the person creating the table arrive at those figures? Cumulative charts are easy to read because they are visual. However, they usually include all the data available and make little distinction between the norms and the outliers. They also can provide too much information and form a chart that looks overwhelming and if a lot of data is involved, more difficult to study without breakdown tables of information.
