BIS 155 iLab Week 5 Data Analysis with Spreadsheets with Lab  iLAB OVERVIEWScenario/SummaryThe owner of Bruno’s Pizza, Joe Bruno, wants to evaluate the profitability of his three restaurants before he expands further. He is particularly interested in the comparative results of three dining categories, dine-in, pickup, and delivery. Joe has asked for your help in doing this analysis in return for a small stipend and all the pizza you can eat. You have already prepared a template and distributed it to each restaurant manager, who has entered the sales data for last year. Your next task is to consolidate the data into a single workbook that shows the total sales for each quarter and each dining category. The information should be shown in tabular, as well as graphical formats. You will also create a documentation sheet so that Joe will know exactly what you have created.BIS 155 iLab Week 6 Data Analysis with Spreadsheets with Lab iLAB OVERVIEWScenario/SummaryDay Care Wonders Income Statement of Jane Morales.BIS 155 iLab Week 7 Access Data Analysis with Spreadsheets with Lab  iLAB OVERVIEWScenario/SummaryHopefully you will find this week’s lab activity fun and useful. If you have never created a database, you will be able to tell all of your friends and family that you are now a database designer! You will walk through the steps of creating and populating an Access database to keep a record of items in your home. The database will have a table, a form, a query, and a report. You will need to use Microsoft Access 2010. In the event you do not have Access, you can use the iLab environment. Make sure to copy your files down to your pc and upload to the Dropbox. The following videos will refresh you with the use of the iLab environment and transfer of files.BIS 155 All iLabs Access Data Analysis with Spreadsheets with Lab  BIS 155 Excel Project Week 6 Data Analysis with Spreadsheets with Lab  Analyze the DataAnalyze the data in at least three different ways. Each form of Data Analysis should be provided on a separate, appropriately labeled worksheet. It is expected that each sheet will be professionally formatted and clearly documented with titles, comments, and explanation. Remove any extra sheets so your workbook is as compact as possible when you turn it in. Go back and review your labs for assistance in completing the different types of analysis.The following are some examples of analysis you might wish to do:
  • Sort by discount level. Have discounts increased sales volumes? Is there any discount level that appears to be more effective than others?
  • Graph sales over time to see trends. Are there any peaks and lows in sales? Is there any time of year in which sales are highest? Lowest?
  • Pivot the data to see total sales by quarter, country, category, and salesperson. Are there any highs? Are there any lows that need to be addressed?
  • Subtotal the data. How are quarterly sales totals? Sales totals by salesperson? By Country?
  • Challenge Option: Perform What-If Analysis. What if prices were raised by a certain percentage with a slight decline in sales? What combination of price increases and decline in sales makes most sense?
Present your Conclusions in a MemoUse the integration techniques we worked on in the course to develop a Memo (Word document) that includes data and graphs copied and pasted from your spreadsheet. You will turn in both your Recommendation Memo and your spreadsheet. (To help you formulate your report, there is a Word document named “ExcelProjectMemoTemplate” located in DocSharing – Course Project Materials. The yellow-lined information provides an explanation of what should be included in each section of the Memo.)Your Memo will focus one paragraph on each of the Data Analysis sheets in your workbook. Explain the type of analysis you completed, the conclusions you drew, and a recommendation based on the analysis. (45 points)You should include a final paragraph that explains three things you learned about using Excel for data analysis.

The training topic for the current month is charts using Microsoft Excel. During each training session from different departments or cohorts, the following frequently asked questions were asked and you decide to create a document formalizing answers and suggestions. 
  1. My supervisor, Sally, likes my charts; however, she instructs me to take more time planning my charts before creating the actual chart itself. Why is planning the creation and development of a chart so important?
  2. My supervisor, John, ask me to chart some comparative data but my first attempt with a column chart did not illustrate the data as well as he would have liked. What type of chart is ideal and best to illustrate comparative data of individual items in a data series and why?
  3. My supervisor, Jessica, asked me to project future data trends using a chart. Most of the data is associated with sales and depending on the nature of what is sold, data either fluctuates or increases quickly. What chart feature added to a column chart can help project these data trends and why?
  4. My supervisor, Thomas, asked me to add some creativity with color and enhancements on all charts used during weekly meetings. What should I consider to avoid being overly creative and why is this important? (Points : 40)
(TCO 5) You work for a local construction firm “DeVry Engineering Group” and your supervisor, Jessica, needs an updated earned value analysis index of the prior month for an existing capital project (0000001) that has a current Budget at Completion (BAC) of $1500.00, a current earned value of (EV) of $300, a current actual cost (AC) of $500.00, and a current planned value (PV) of $350.00. In order to calculate the current average index, assume the following variables and standard formulas below:Cost Variance(CV)EV–ACCost Performance Index(CPI)EV/ACSchedule Variance(SV)EV–PVSchedule Performance Index(SPI)EV/PVEstimate to Completion(ETC)EAC–ACEstimate at Completion(EAC)BAC/CPIVariance at Completion(VAC)BAC–EACStatus (Earned Value Index)(EVI)(CPI+SPI)/2Also assume that a final calculated average index of 1.00 or greater represents a project being on track and in good standing. In addition, there could be several options for the descriptive methods to design this worksheet and below is a worksheet setup with the following “3” columns including any other needed top labels like for the existing Month already calculated.
  1. Based on the current calculated earned Status (Earned Value Index) for work order 0000001, is the current capital project in good standing?
  2. Your supervisor, Jessica, wants the worksheet, on row 16 or 17, to automatically provide a project status as being “In the Red” (Poor Standing) or “In the Black” (Good Standing). Explain descriptively how you could use a conditional formula to report the project status.
  3. Your Supervisor, Jessica, has 3 additional projects with work orders, 0000002, 0000003, and 0000004 she wants added to this Excel Workbook where each work order is monitored on a separate worksheet like work order 0000001. Jessica would like to have a summary worksheet which compiles all information for all work orders. The overall design of the summary worksheet will match the same general design as with work orders 0000001 through 0000004. Descriptively describe steps needed to link these worksheets together along with any ideas for formulas and functions to give an overall picture of all project work orders combined so that Jessica can see an overall holistic view of the Status (Earned Value Index) across all these work orders being managed.
  4. Based on the summary worksheet, Jessica, would like to see a chart which can help with future projections of the Status (Earned Value Index). Descriptively describe which chart you would recommend with any features that will help Jessica with future projections. Also using your intuition and creative mind, descriptively describe if any other information needs to be charted from the summary worksheet which may help Jessica with future cost projections and why?
