Conclusion (example from accounting)
Outdoor Equipment Ltd is not in a very secure financial position.
Improvements in every area of the company are needed if the
company is, in the first instance, to survive and then grow.
The key
areas of reform are the liquidity of the company and the quantity
and quality of working capital, profitability, and financial stability.
Management must address these areas simultaneously if the company is to overcome its present poor record.

Executive Summary
The operation of garden taps can pose a difficulty for many tap users. This report describes and evaluates the range of possible design solutions the design team has generated. A lack of commercially available solutions to the problem was identified and three alternative solutions were subsequently
designed. Evaluation of the alternative solutions identified a tap handle extension, named ‘Easy Tap’, as the optimal solution to the problem. This tap handle extension consists of a channel -type attachment, onto which a vertical tube is joined, which in turn supports a larger handle that is over twice the length of the existing tap handle. 'Easy Tap' is able to slide onto the existing tap
handle, its over
- size handle providing a greater torque
- moment for the user that overcomes the difficulty of operating the tap. A commercial evaluation suggests that ‘Easy Tap' will not only be a possible design solution to the problem but will also be a commercially viable solution to the problem.
