Situation Analysis/Objectives for your Client

As a public relations practitioner, you must understand the environment influencing your client
or organization. This assignment is designed to teach you how to write a situation analysis,
including a rudimentary competitive analysis. A situation analysis using secondary research is a
first step in a public relations or advertising (or any strategic) campaign, and it will help you
pinpoint your strategies. The goal of this assignment is for you to fully understand the issues
facing your client and use some basic secondary research skills and a familiarity with effective
research, both basic internet research and the use of USC-provided databases.

  1. Use the resources in the library, online, and informal qualitative research to write a
    situation analysis (including competitive analysis) for your group’s Final Project client.
  2. Based on this research, identify initial potential business, public relations, and
    research objectives for your client project. These will naturally be your hypothesis and
    your objectives may change after you do primary research in the coming weeks. Refer
    to the text and class slides for guidance on these three types of objectives.

Information technology plays a significant role in the accounting profession. As a result, accountants with information technology skills possess an advantage in the job market today. In this project, you are given opportunities to gain and enhance your skills in certain areas of information technology. You will be exposed to ways to (1) collect, (2) gather, and (3) arrange raw data for analysis. You are required to use Microsoft Excel to accomplish your work in this project because Excel has been found to be the number one mostly used tool in the workplace for accountants.

Please be aware that you may want to read through the whole project and its requirements a few times before you think through how you are going to fulfill the requirements. Getting the bottom lines are not the only goal in this project. You must also document your processes and provide the detail in your memo.

Project Description:
TJ Table Tennis Company employs four sales associates, i.e., Adam, Becky, Chris, and Debbie. Every month, these four sales associates will send their monthly sales records in certain formats to the headquarters of the Company. The top management of the TJ Table Tennis Company asks you to come up with an algorithm (i.e., a process) in generating a worksheet for consolidated sales records and a worksheet for a master customer list each month.

Now, you are given their monthly sales records from December, 2020 (i.e., Adam.txt, Becky.txt, Chris.txt, and Debbie.txt).

Data stored in these text files follow the following formats:

  1. Adam.txt (tab is used to separate each field): A) Customer’s name with first name followed by a space and followed by last name; B) mailing address with street address followed by a comma and a space, by city name, by a comma and a space, by a two-digit State abbreviation, by a space, and then by a 5-digit zip code; C) gender; and D) Sales amount from a sale transaction

Project Management

The course project is a mechanism design project. When you have successfully completed this project, you will have honed your skills in specification development, dimensional synthesis of linkages, gear trains and cams. You will also gain experience in working with geographically dispersed teams. The project will require that you complete individual designs or portions of the final device that must work in consort at the end of the project.
Your goal is to design a quick-return mechanism that performs one of the tasks outlined in the project topics below. Your team will design a linkage system, a drive mechanism and a loading mechanism. Your design must utilize a linkage to produce the primary motion, a gear train and motor to drive the linkage. Your design must include a mechanism to load the machine and control the timing of the release that utilizes a cam. The same motor will be used to drive the linkage and the loading mechanism.
• Generate engineering specifications (design requirements) for a linkage based machine, given a general design problem
• Use position, velocity, acceleration and quick return analysis to design a linkage to meet a given set of performance specifications
• Design a gear train and motor system to drive your linkage
• Design a loading and timing mechanism that utilizes a cam
• Note that in all of these projects spin is important!
Projects – Choose one of the projects listed here:
• Use the short description of the project and information obtained from hand calculations, references, and/or simple experiments to develop specifications for the size and timing-ratio of the linkage, as well as for the force needed at the output.
• Assume that your target market is college level through professional level players
• Design a linkage that satisfies your derived specifications.
• Size a motor and drive system. Specify a power rating and a speed so that the output delivers sufficient force and velocity to the object being acted on. How frequently will the output action occur?
• Analyze the design. Include ranges on the output displacement, the transmission angle, maximum velocity and acceleration of the output, velocity and acceleration of the output during contact.
A Slapshot Shooter
A machine that will simulate a hockey slapshot to be used to train goalies. The hitter should be able to deliver the puck to any portion of the net at a velocity that challenges a goalie.
Design a linkage that can be driven by a motor that operates at a constant rpm and transforms the rotary motion of the input to oscillatory or translational motion. The output should propel a hockey puck with sufficient speed so that goalies can use your machine to practice blocking slap shots.

  1. A specification design review (Done+ attached).
  2. Individual system design
    Each member of your team will select one of the three subsystems (linkage, loading system and drive system) You will submit a document (2 pages) describing the specifications and design of your subsystem of the entire system. You will construct a prototype for your subsystem that the team will assemble into a final prototype. (We need linkages)

Statistics project

Conduct a survey then display and analyze the data using methods from Chapters 2 and 3 of your textbook. Use techniques of inferential statistics (Chapters 7-9) to construct a confidence interval and complete a test of hypothesis.

Part I: Pick a theme and gather the data

  • Pick a theme (topic) that will explore a comparison between two populations.
  • Define two distinct populations and two independent samples, for example: Population 1: Male Students at DVC, Population 2: Female Students at DVC. Two populations or samples are independent if the values selected from one population are not related to or somehow naturally paired or matched with the values selected from the other population.
  • Devise a sampling technique. A SRS is not expected but it should be more than a mere convenience sample. Sampling techniques are discussed in Chapter 1.
  • Write a sample survey that includes at least 1 qualitative question (could be used to define your two independent samples) and 1 quantitative question. The quantitative data should be continuous and not discrete. Gather raw data, not grouped (you will group it later into classes). Pay close attention to the wording of your questions and also any units of measure you are planning to use. Don’t make your questions unnecessarily complicated!
  • Conduct your survey. Each of the two independent samples must have a sample size greater than 30. You can use a paper sample, phone sampling or conduct your survey electronically using something like Survey Monkey or StatCrunch.
  • Compile your results in a spreadsheet. StatCrunch has a spreadsheet or you can use something like EXCEL or Numbers.

Part II: The Report Use your data to write your report with the following minimum requirements:

  • Title page including your names and theme.
  • Description of your populations and samples
  • Description of your sampling technique
  • A blank copy of your survey/questions
  • At least 1 pie chart or bar/pareto chart using qualitative data
  • At least one distribution chart that includes columns for frequency, percentage frequency and cumulative frequency. This chart should include 5-8 classes.
  • At least one histogram and one frequency polygon (2 graphs)
  • Summary statistics for both independent samples using your quantitative data. Include the following: sample size, sample mean, sample standard deviation, sample variance, 5-number summary, range of usual values (those within 2 standard deviations of the mean).
  • Two modified box plots, one for each 5-number summary (see p.121).
  • Construct a 95% confidence interval to compare your two populations using your quantitative data. Include a complete interpretive sentence (see p.301).
  • Complete a test of hypothesis to compare your two populations using your quantitative data using the p-value method and techniques from Chapter 8 and Chapter 9. Include the hypotheses, p-value and a proper conclusion (see p.364 flowchart).
  • Finish with a very well-written paragraph or two that compares/contrasts the data sets to make some valid conclusions about the populations based upon your data. To be clear, valid conclusions about the populations are not a simple summary of what you observe in the sample data. What you observe in the sample data cannot be extended to the entire population unless the correct statisitacal analysis has been done to support doing so. Your conclusions should be based on the results of the analysis and include your confidence level.
