These fixtures are designed and produced for large corporate or government customers. Currently large jobs completed are in response to one-off requests for special estimated time of arrival (ETA) fittings to hold audiovisual equipment (cameras and monitors), trolleys, custom design brackets and filing cabinets.However, a business analysis conducted after two years in operation has recommended that the provision of hardware, software and business processes be standardized nationwide. In the last two years, StrongaBuilt administrative departments and manufacturing sites have been established in Wodonga, Melbourne, Brisbane and Adelaide. These sites implement the existing Sydney operation, which contains the only research department, information systems department and legal department.The managing director, John, has experienced increasing levels of stress associated with decision-making needed to market products, provide consistent quotations for jobs, plan production schedules and monitor inventory. He has created an invoice production system for filing cabinets and a system to analyze the profitability of the production of the various products.As he wants these systems to be used in all the offices, he has decided to standardize computing equipment and software in all the administrative centers. He has obtained some quotes for individual PCs and wants to know which offer is best based on the following considerations: Staff required using standard office desktop applications will be provided with standard computers. Staff required to use large database/spreadsheet requirements and multiple concurrent activities will be provided with enhanced computers. Staff required to utilize graphic-intensive applications will be provided with power computers.
