Description:

This paper describes the steps necessary in an IT project that involves purchasing and evaluating new equipment for a company. The project lead is Lisa, and she works for a company called Club IT. The paper presents Lisa's budget and analyzes the decisions she must make in terms of strategy and profitability for the company. A section of the paper deals with dashboards and how Lisa and her colleague Ruben should decide which to purchase. Additionally, the paper details methods for designing the project using the waterfall method. The paper concludes by citing how the project will go through specific phases of the systems development life cycle.

From the Paper:

"Executive dashboards provide a wide range of information regarding the business in a format that is easily understood by managers. There are many types of information that Lisa and Ruben should have. They should be able to know what products are most popular and what products are most profitable. This will allow them to determine which products contribute most to the bottom line. The dashboard should also break down revenues/profits by opening hour, so that the company can potentially adjust its hours to avoid consistently unprofitable times. They can also use the dashboard to determine the club's performance by type of entertainment offered. Breakdowns of food and drink purchases matched against entertainment forms will help them determine appropriate specials to offer for each evening. The dashboard should be able to help them identify price elasticity for cover charges for each type of entertainment so that they can maximize attendance revenue."
