Assignment: Process Specifications
An office supplies firm sends out invoices monthly and will give discounts only if payments are made within 10 days. There is a discount of 5% if the order was placed over the web. For other orders the discounting policy is as follows: if the amount of the order is greater than $1,000, subtract 4 percent for the order; if the amount is between $500 and $1,000, subtract a 2 percent discount; if the amount is less than $500, do not apply any discount. However, any order for furniture is exempt from all discounting.
1. Write structured English for the narrative of the company’s discount policy.
2. Draw a decision tree for depicting the discount policy.
3. Construct a decision table for the discount policy. (Include all Rules; do not “simplify.”)
To draw diagrams use whatever method is available to you. A simple Paint program will suffice to create diagrams. Or you could draw them by hand and then scan them or take pictures with your phone for uploading to Canvas.
Tables can be created in Word or Excel. Or you can draw by hand and then scan or take a picture for uploading to Canvas.
If you draw by hand, it should be neat and legible. For example, use a ruler to draw straight lines. Use plain paper, not lined.
