Project #11496 - Test Questions

1. (TCO 1) You work for a local construction firm, "DeVry Engineering Group" and your supervisor wants to test your knowledge and skills with Microsoft Excel and has instructed you to develop a spreadsheet to calculate weekly payroll for “15” employees with the following assumptions:

Note: This is a one part question.

• Each employee could have a standard hourly rate between $10.00 and $30.00 per hour.
• Each employee qualifies to earn overtime at a rate of 1.5 of his or her hourly rate for every hour greater than 40 hours.
• Each employee will have a standard 7.65% deduction for social security
• Each employee will have a standard 14.00% deduction for Federal Taxes
• Each employee will have a standard 5.33% deduction for State Taxes

Explain how you will structure and format your worksheet, including titles, column headings, and formulas to calculate payroll variables for each employee to determine "Net Pay" including and not limited to Total Hours, Gross Pay, Social Security Tax, Federal Withholding Tax, and Sate Withholding Tax.  In addition, determine how you would extract overtime hours from a calculated value of "Total Hours" using a conditional formula.

In addition, your supervisor will need this weekly payroll report on a weekly basis and instructed you to keep the payroll history of all weeks within "1" workbook but has allowed you to decide if you would rather keep the payroll running on one worksheet or by assigning a new worksheet for each week.  Using your knowledge learned in this class, descriptively explain whether you would keep all weekly payrolls in one worksheet or assigned to new worksheets by week.  Defend the approach you take based on what you have learned in this course.

(Points : 40)       
      

Note: This is a four part question.

1.) Explain your approach to setting up your worksheets and organizing the data.

2.) Explain how you will visually represent the data for the total sales of the individual inventory categories for each location for the time periods shown.

3.) Explain how you will visually represent the consolidated data for the sales of all stores and all inventory categories for all time periods in one chart or graph.

4.) Once you have finished the above tasks, you plan to send the Excel workbook to your manager for evaluation.  Your manger is presenting your findings to the Board of Directors for justification for additional capital expenditures.  The visual representations need to be concise and clearly able to support the requested expenditures.  Explain how you would use the integration features of MS Office to incorporate the Excel information into other presentation media.

      
      

Note: This is a one part question.

      
      

Note: This is a two part question.

1.) The managers will e-mail their weekly reports to you on Monday of the following week. You will then produce the summary report. Explain the process for doing this. Give a sample formula to total the number of mini-gizmos produced by the entire company in a week.
                    

2.) Each week, you will present the combined report to your boss, who wants to see both the summary and the individual sheets for each location. You want to add a header with the date and your name to each page. What is the easiest way to do this? Explain the process.
