QUESTIONS: 1. Summarize the following topics we studied this term (you must use both the textbook as well as the PowerPoint slides to bring out the key points): (Ch.1) Systems, Roles and Development Methodologies; (Ch.2) Understanding and Modeling Organizational Systems; (Ch.3) Project Management; (Ch.4) Information Gathering: Interactive Methods; (Ch.5) Information Gathering: Intuitive Methods; (Ch.9) Process Specifications and Structured Decisions. You must include in your answer the aspects that were pointed out during class lectures as being important to the role of a Systems Analyst in industry, in each chapter.

2. Luvcheese pizzeria in downtown Chicago sells the famous “Chicago-Style Stuffed Crust” pizza for \$15 each. Their operation needs equipment worth \$10,000. In addition, there are Page 2 of 4 other fixed costs of \$5000. The variable cost per pizza depends on the amount/type of cheese, the nature/amount of the toppings and other variables. The variable cost per pizza has been determined to be \$5. (2a) Calculate the BREAK-EVEN POINT using the formula method. Show all calculations. (8 Points) (2b) Explain what this break-even point means to the owner of Luvcheese pizzeria (i.e. in terms of practical implications).

3. Weare-businessminded Company has asked for your help in comparing its present computer system with a new one its board of directors would like to see implemented. Proposed system costs and present system costs are as follows: Item Proposed System Costs Present System Costs Year 1 Equipment Lease \$20,000 \$11,500 Salaries \$30,000 \$50,000 Overhead \$4000 \$3000 Development \$30,000 \$0 Year 2 Equipment Lease \$20,000 \$10,500 Salaries \$33,000 \$55,000 Overhead \$4400 \$3300 Development \$12,000 \$0 Year 3 Equipment Lease \$20,000 \$10,500 Salaries \$36,000 \$60,000 Overhead \$4900 \$3600 Development \$0 \$0 Year 4 Equipment Lease \$20,000 \$10,500 Salaries \$39,000 \$66,000 Overhead \$5500 \$4000 Development \$0 \$0 The following are the proposed system benefits: Year Benefits Year 1 \$55,000 Year 2 \$75,000 Year 3 \$80,000 Year 4 \$85,000 (3a) Using Break-Even Analysis, determine the year in which Weare-businessminded Company will break even. Graph the costs and show the break-even point graphically. Explain the significance of this break-even point. (3b) Determine the payback period using the manual/table method. Page 3 of 4 (3c) Graph the benefits versus the costs and show the payback period on the graph.

4. At MoneyMinded Company, the maintenance department, the clerical support department, and the shipping/receiving department are involved with adding/installing new computers including laptops and servers. Some of the employees, but not all of them will require installation of desktop computers. The shipping/receiving department, the clerical support department, and the software user are all involved in adding software. The clerical support department is also involved with producing hardware investment reports. Show the above on a Use Case Diagram. List the “actors” and the “actions”. Also draw a Use Case Scenario (Use Case Scenario must be in a table format as shown in your textbook).

5. Premium Airlines has recently offered to settle claims for a class-action lawsuit, which was originated for alleged price fixing of tickets. The proposed settlement is stated as follows: Initially, Premium Airlines will make available to the settlement class a main fund of \$25 million in coupons. If the number of valid claims submitted is 1.25 million or fewer, the value of each claim will be the result obtained by dividing \$25 million by the total number of valid claims submitted. For example, if there are 500,000 valid claims, each person submitting a valid claim will receive a coupon with a value of \$50. The denomination of each coupon distributed will be in a whole dollar amount not to exceed \$50. Thus, if there are fewer than 500,000 valid claims, the value of each claim will be divided among two coupons or more. For example, if there are 250,000 valid claims, each person submitting a valid claim will receive two coupons, each having a face value of \$50, for a total coupon value of \$100. If the number of valid claims submitted is between 1.25 and 1.5 million, Premium Airlines will make available a supplemental fund of coupons, with a potential value of \$5 million. The supplemental fund will be made available to the extent necessary to provide one \$20 coupon for each valid claim. If there are more than 1.5 million valid claims, the total amount of the main fund and the supplemental fund, \$30 million, will be divided evenly to produce one coupon for each valid claim. The value of each such coupon will be \$30 million divided by the total number of valid claims. Express the above decision rules using STRUCTURED ENGLISH
