  Case Study- Director’s Request for PCs using MS Word Table, MS Access, and MS PowerPoint

 

Case Study – Using MS Office 2010

 

Please use the document “Case Study – Director’s Requirements” for each of the parts described below.

 

Part 1: Specifications Table (MS Word)

 

For the case study provided to you, create MS Word tables that identify and contain the hardware and software requirements to meet the director's requirements.  The MS Word document in its final form will include 5 MS Word tables.  It will conclude with a two-paragraph narrative summary that classifies the user type and identifies the PC category(ies) that will be recommended.

 

Students are expected to conduct external research to adequately address all aspects of the assignment requirements. Any outside sources should be correctly cited in APA style at the end of the table. Students will need to include specific requirements from the case study to show why each item is being recommended.Each element listed below must be incorporated into the assignment.  Omissions will result in loss of points.

 

Make and model and description are required.  For example, if the solution suggested is a 32” IBM Monitor, say so, do not just say monitor, that says nothing.

 

There should be sufficient detail in this case study for procurement/purchasing personnel to buy the systems.  Details are crucial.

 

Don’t bother with web references as to where the equipment can be found.  Focus on a solution to specific requirements.
