Introduction of the case study

Mr. Singh retired from his long career in Human Resource Management and now started a Steam Punk themed mail order business called “Steam Age Emporium” and began selling various types of imported Steam Punk related merchandise such as ladies’ and gentlemen’s clothing, ladies’ and gentlemen’s boots, headwear, goggles and other assorted Steampunk related paraphernalia to customers via mail order around Australia and New Zealand.

These types of Steampunk products have become very popular and have increasing demand in the market. Mr. Singh’s business has experienced a rapid growth in their mail orders. When he first retired, he bought his own home computer to help manage the business’s books and finances. The business has contracted to your firm, Boco Technologies, to assist in setting up more of the business’s various computer-based information systems.

Mr. Singh is interested in a Decision Support System (DSS) based on Microsoft Excel spread-sheet application. The DSS will be used to analyse sales trends for the business to determine future courses of action for the business.

Mr. Singh would like the information in the text files imported into Microsoft Excel 2010/2013 to analyse the business performance. The suppliers used by the business, source items from either Finland (FI) or Brunei (BN). They allow the business to select from either of these two regions on an ad hoc basic depending on the most favourable exchange rate at the time.

Mr. Singh has noted that a number of the business’s competitors are providing a discount to customers who place large orders. The business would like to see what affect adopting a similar policy would have on the business. The business has also noted a growing number of online businesses are starting to provide free freight delivery as a way of encouraging more online business; the business would like to run a number of scenarios based on potential Mark-up and Freight options to ascertain the best combination for the business if they were to adopt this policy too.

All phases in this project must be developed with professionalism and user-friendliness in mind.

Introduction of the case study

Mr. Singh retired from his long career in Human Resource Management and now started a Steam Punk themed mail order business called “Steam Age Emporium” and began selling various types of imported Steam Punk related merchandise such as ladies’ and gentlemen’s clothing, ladies’ and gentlemen’s boots, headwear, goggles and other assorted Steampunk related paraphernalia to customers via mail order around Australia and New Zealand.

These types of Steampunk products have become very popular and have increasing demand in the market. Mr. Singh’s business has experienced a rapid growth in their mail orders. When he first retired, he bought his own home computer to help manage the business’s books and finances. The business has contracted to your firm, Boco Technologies, to assist in setting up more of the business’s various computer-based information systems.

Mr. Singh is interested in a Decision Support System (DSS) based on Microsoft Excel spread-sheet application. The DSS will be used to analyse sales trends for the business to determine future courses of action for the business.

Mr. Singh would like the information in the text files imported into Microsoft Excel 2010/2013 to analyse the business performance. The suppliers used by the business, source items from either Finland (FI) or Brunei (BN). They allow the business to select from either of these two regions on an ad hoc basic depending on the most favourable exchange rate at the time.

Mr. Singh has noted that a number of the business’s competitors are providing a discount to customers who place large orders. The business would like to see what affect adopting a similar policy would have on the business. The business has also noted a growing number of online businesses are starting to provide free freight delivery as a way of encouraging more online business; the business would like to run a number of scenarios based on potential Mark-up and Freight options to ascertain the best combination for the business if they were to adopt this policy too.

All phases in this project must be developed with professionalism and user-friendliness in mind.

1. Develop an IF function using the new Recommended Exchange Rate Type value (from the DataInput worksheet to calculate the Cost Price (NZ) (in the Cost Price (NZ) column) using the following criteria:

If the Exchange Rate Type is FI then the Cost Price (NZ) is calculated by multiplying the Cost Price (FI) by the Exchange Rate (FI to NZ) cell on the DataInput worksheet. Hint: Cost Price (FI) x Exchange Rate (FI to NZ)

If the Exchange Rate Type is BN then the Cost Price (NZ) is calculated by multiplying the Cost Price (BN) by the Exchange Rate (BN to NZ) cell on the DataInput worksheet.

Hint: Cost Price (BN) x Exchange Rate (BN to NZ)

2. Make sure that you include rounding (to 2 decimal places) into each calculation and error checking to avoid incorrect results due to typing mistakes.

Note: All formulas must be designed to be typed once at the top of each column and copied down to the remaining cells in the column.

Also do not include any unit measures such as $, kg or km in the IF function as this will result in a #VALUE error message. Brackets must only be used as indicated in the hints given above, any incorrect or extraneous usage of brackets may result in loss of marks.

You must remove any reference to the prefix Report! from these Nested IF functions to reduce complexity and redundancy of code.

3. Check the IF function: Once you have completed the Cost Price (NZ) IF function, perform the following two tests on it to ensure that it is working correctly:

On the DataInput worksheet, type BN into the Exchange Rate Type cell.

Go to the Report worksheet and observe whether the Cost Price (NZ) have changed.

On the DataInput worksheet, type GIGO into the Exchange Rate Type cell.

Go to the Report worksheet and observe whether the Cost Price (NZ) now shows an error message.

4. Explain what purpose a Nested If function in a Report Worksheet has for Cost Price.

Question-12: Nested IF function in Report Worksheet Selling Price

On the Report worksheet:

1. Develop an IF function using the new Recommended MarkUp Type value (from the DataInput worksheet) to calculate the Selling Price (in the Selling Price column) using the following criteria:

If the MarkUp Type is Store then the Selling Price is calculated by increasing Cost Price by the Store’s Recommended MarkUp % from the DataInput worksheet Hint: Cost Price (NZ) + Cost Price (NZ) x Store Recommended MarkUp

If the MarkUp Type is Supplier then the Selling Price is calculated by increasing Cost Price by the Supplier’s Recommended MarkUp

Hint: Cost Price (NZ) + Cost Price (NZ) x Supplier Recommended MarkUp

2. Confirm that you include rounding (to 2 decimal places) into each calculation and error checking to avoid incorrect results due to typing mistakes.

Note: All formulas must be designed to be typed once at the top of each column and copied down to the remaining cells in the column.

Also do not include any unit measures such as $, kg or km in the IF function as this will result in a #VALUE error message. Brackets must only be used as indicated in the hints given above, any incorrect or extraneous usage of brackets may result in loss of marks.

You must remove any reference to the prefix Report! from these Nested IF functions to reduce complexity and redundancy of code.

3. Check the IF function: Once you have completed the Selling Price IF function, perform the following two tests on it to ensure that it is working correctly:

On the DataInput worksheet, type Supplier into the MarkUp Type cell.

Go to the Report worksheet and observe whether the Selling Prices have changed.

On the DataInput worksheet, type GIGO into the MarkUp Type cell.

Go to the Report worksheet and observe whether the Selling Prices now shows an error message.

4. Explain what the productivity gains are for using a Nested If function in the Report Worksheet selling price.

Question-13: Nested IF function in Report Worksheet Freight Cost

1. On the DataInput worksheet, type Milady Freight into the cell containing the expression: [Insert Freight Type here].

2. On the Report worksheet develop an IF function using the new Recommended Freight Type value from the DataInput worksheet to calculate the Freight Cost (in the Freight Cost column) using the following criteria:

If the Freight Type is Milady Freight then the Freight Cost is calculated a quarter of a

cent ($0.0025) per kilometre (Distance) and a dollar seventy-five cents ($1.75) per kilogram of the item’s freight weight per item ordered (Order Qty).

Hint: ($0.0025 x Distance + $1.75 x Item Weight) x OrderQty

If the Freight Type is Monsi Transport then the Freight Cost is calculated at a dollar and fifty cents ($1.50) for the first one and a quarter kilograms (1.25 kg) and then at a dollar and fifty cents ($1.50) per kilogram of the item’s freight weight over one and a quarter kilograms (1.25 kg) per item ordered (Order Qty).

Hint: ($1.50 + IF(Item Weight 1.25 kg, (Item Weight – 1.25kg) x $1.50, 0)) x OrderQty

3. Make sure that you include rounding (to 2 decimal places) into each calculation and error checking to avoid incorrect results due to typing mistakes.

Note: All formulas must be designed to be typed once at the top of each column and copied down to the remaining cells in the column.

Also do not include any unit measures such as $, kg or km in the IF function as this will result in a #VALUE error message. Brackets must only be used as indicated in the hints given above, any incorrect or extraneous usage of brackets may result in loss of marks.

You must remove any reference to the prefix Report! from these Nested IF functions to reduce complexity and redundancy of code.

4. Check the IF function: Once you have completed the Freight Cost IF function, perform the following three tests on it to ensure that it is working correctly:

• On the DataInput worksheet, type Monsi Transport into the Freight Type cell.

• Go to the Report worksheet and observe whether the Freight Costs have changed.

• On the DataInput worksheet, type GIGO into the Freight Type cell.

Question-14: IF / AND function in Report Worksheet: Item Discount

1. On the Report worksheet develop an IF / AND function to calculate the amount of Item Discount given to an individual item on an order (in the Item Discount column) using the following criteria:

• If the OrderQty is greater than or equal to ten (10) of the same item in any single order AND the Selling Price for that item is greater than $150.00, then the Item Discount is calculated at 8.125% of the Selling Price for that item, otherwise the Item Discount is zero.

Hint: =IF (AND (OrderQty = 10, Selling Price $150), Selling Price x 8.125%, 0)

2. Ensure that you include rounding (to 2 decimal places )

Note: All formulas must be designed to be typed once at the top of each column and copied down to the remaining cells in the column.

Also do not include any unit measures such as $, kg or km in the IF function as this will result in a #VALUE error message. Brackets must only be used as indicated in the hints given above, any incorrect or extraneous usage of brackets may result in loss of marks.

You must remove any reference to the prefix Report! from these IF / AND functions to reduce complexity and redundancy of code.

3. Test the IF function: Once you have completed the Item Discount IF / AND function and filled it down the column, review the values to ensure that it is working correctly in the following situations:

• OrderQty is less than ten (10) and Selling Price is less than or equal to $150, should result in $0.00 Item Discount.

• OrderQty is less than ten (10) and Selling Price is greater than $150, should result in $0.00 Item Discount.

• OrderQty is greater than or equal to ten (10) and Selling Price is less than or equal to $150, should result in $0.00 Item Discount.

• OrderQty is greater than or equal to ten (10) and Selling Price is greater than $150, should result in an Item Discount.

4. What was the purpose of testing the If function in 3 above. What added value is this to the organisation.

Question-15: Report Worksheet Purchases, Sales and Order Discount Formulas

On the Report worksheet calculate the following three simple formulas:

1. Purchases by multiplying Order Qty with Cost Price (NZ).

2. Sales by multiplying Order Qty by the difference of Selling Price less the Item Discount amount.

Hint: =(Selling Price – Item Discount) x Order Qty

3. Order Discount by multiplying Order Qty with Item Discount.

Note: All formulas must be designed to be typed once at the top of each column and copied down to the remaining cells in the column.

You must remove any reference to the prefix Report! from these formulae to reduce complexity and redundancy of code. Brackets must only be used as indicated in the hints given above, any incorrect or extraneous usage of brackets may result in loss of marks.

4. What is the purpose of using formulas in the Report Worksheet. How does this benefit the business.

2. Replace the phrase in D7 “[Insert Formula here]” with a function to calculate the Total Quarterly Fixed Expenses by adding all the Quarterly Fixed Expenses on the DataInput worksheet.

3. Replace the phrase in D10 “[Insert Formula here]” with a function to calculate the Total Purchases by adding all the Purchases in the Purchases column on the Reports worksheet.

4. Replace the phrase in D11 “[Insert Formula here]” with a function to calculate the Total Freight by adding all the Freight Costs in the Freight Cost column on the Reports worksheet.

5. Replace the phrase in D13 “[Insert Formula here]” with a formula to calculate the Total Quarterly Variable Expenses by adding all the Quarterly Variable Expenses on the Calculations worksheet.

6. Replace the phrase in D15 “[Insert Formula here]” with a formula to calculate the Total Profit by subtracting the Total Quarterly Fixed and Total Quarterly Variable Expenses from the Total Sales on the Calculations worksheet.

7. Replace the phrase in D16 “[Insert Formula here]” with a function to calculate the Total Discount for Orders by using the SUMIF() function to add up all cells with an Order Discount greater than 0 in the Order Discount column on the Reports worksheet.

8. Replace the phrase in D17 “[Insert Formula here]” with a function to calculate the Number of Orders where a Discount was Applied by using the COUNTIF() function to count all cells with an Order Discount greater than 0 in the Order Discount column on the Reports worksheet.

9. Explain what you have done in using formulas and functions that adds to business productivity.

Question-18: Cell Referencing in Data Input Worksheet

The Documentation Worksheet must demonstrate the following:

• A statement outlining the purpose of the Spreadsheet:

Purpose should outline why the Spreadsheet was created including – discussion about the Markup Type, Exchange Rate and Freight Type.

• A statement about the protection level that should be used on each Worksheet.

Protection should look at all created Worksheets and outline whether each sheet should contain protection and why.

Note: DO NOT actually apply protection to your Spreadsheet – this will result in it being unable to be marked.

• A statement about how the user can access and use the Worksheets.

User Notes should provide a step by step guide for a new user to use the Spreadsheet from changing the values on the DataInput Worksheet to observing the outcome of these changes on both DataInput and Report Worksheets.
