For this individual assignment, you will use skills acquired through practical laboratory exercises to automate a business process, and to visualize the impact of the automation.

Assessment Details

Page Land is a small second-hand book shop, run by a team of three staff members: Augusta, Barnardo, and Chad.

For this assignment, you will complete the following set of tasks using Excel, and build an ePortfolio page to describe your work.

Task 0 - Setting up

Create an ePortfolio page for your assignment


Augusta and Barnardo are the semi-retired co-owners of the bookshop, and do not take a salary.

Chad, however, is a part-time employee, with total employment costs of $22 per hour. Chad is also entitled to four weeks of paid annual leave, during which a casual replacement is required at a cost of $33 per hour.

Fixed costs such as rent and insurance are $2900 per year, and utilities costs are $140 per month.

Task 1 - Costs of operating the business

Using Excel, create a spreadsheet called operating_costs.xlsx that calculates the projected annual outgoing costs of running Page Land.

Your spreadsheet should be configured such that the working hours, hourly rates, and fixed and utility costs can be varied easily.

Obtaining Books

Throughout the day, customers come to Page Land to buy books, and occasionally to sell them.

When people bring in books to sell to Page Land, the sta? member on duty will review the books and make an o?er for each one individually.

Currently, the process for determining how much the book shop will pay for a book is entirely subjective. Sta? members o?er an amount per book based on the quality of the book, and how popular they think it is, and how they are feeling at the time.

The sale amount is always simply double the amount paid and is set at the same time - if Page Land pays $3.00 for a book, they will put it on sale with a marked price of $6.00.

(Page Land does not deal in rare or antique books)

For several months, sta? have been keeping track of the date and time, quality, publication year and amount paid for each book in a spreadsheet. This spreadsheet is available for download on Moodle.

Task 2 - Sales team offers

Using Excel, process the history of purchases spreadsheet and use appropriate charts to visualize:

 How the prices paid di?ered for each sta? member; and  How the prices paid have changed over time

Process automation

Augusta and Barnardo want to improve the consistency of how they pay for and price books.

They'd like to standardize on three standard price o?ers, and have designed the following process to determine how to allocate them, including the option of rejecting the book altogether.

Task 3 - Automation

Using Excel, create a spreadsheet page that automates the above process, allowing a member of the team to enter whether the book is hardcover, its publication year, and its condition, and receive a price to o?er.

Ensure that you include enough text and formatting to make your spreadsheet usable by a member of the Page Land team, or by a University lecturer.

Your spreadsheet should be configured such that the Low, Medium and High prices can be varied easily.

Task 4 - Price setting

Using Excel and the historical data you have available, determine sets of prices which meet the objectives of the following scenarios:

 Scenario one: Total o?er prices are approximately the same as for the historical data

 Scenario two: Assuming all books purchased are sold, allow all sta? to draw the same wage as Chad.

Describe the strategy you used to find appropriate prices for each scenario
