## Instructions

Putting It All Together

This assignment has many different steps to it. Be sure to check off each one so you know that you accomplished it. You will be creating a personal résumé in Microsoft Word, revising your PowerPoint presentation from Week 5 Discussion, and then zipping these files along with your Excel spreadsheet that you created for Week 4 Project into a compressed folder to upload to the Week 5 Project submission folder.

Your résumé will be based upon résumés in your field that you found for Week 3 Discussion. You will include your experiences no matter how few they are at this time. Include what information you have now and you can keep adding skills and experiences to your résumé as you complete classes and change jobs. Below are tips and criteria to meet as you create your résumé.

Tip: You learned about tables in Week 2. Tables are great for creating résumés. Most of the time borders are turned off on the tables after the résumé is created although sometimes a top or bottom border is turned on to separate categories.

Part I: The Resume

• Create your résumé based on the following criteria in Microsoft Word and save it as W5P_Resume_LastName.docx. Remember that the program will automatically add the extension of .docx.
1. Ensure that the résumé was logically laid out and easily understood
2. Create categories: create distinct separation and identification of important line-item job skills and experiences using bullets or numbers with appropriate application.
3. Have content separation: provide a distinguishing feature that separates one line or paragraph from the others.
4. Modify text: modify default typeface in one line or section and modify the default color or style of a line or section.
5. Modify text size: modify the default typeface size by changing the points in at least one line on the page
6. Create an overall professional look to your résumé.
7. Include a header with your name and include page numbers. In reality, you would only do this if your résumé was more than one page but you are demonstrating your skills in this document.

Part II: The PowerPoint and Zipped Folder

1. Revise the PowerPoint presentation you created in Week 5 Discussion based on feedback you received in the Week 5 Discussion threads. If no suggestions for improvement were made, try something new on a slide and document that. Make sure that you describe the changes you made in the Notes section of the changed slides. If you had not done so before, compress all graphics.
3. When you submit your work, add a brief comment as a reflection on your own continuous professional self-development.

* To zip the folder on a PC:

Ranking Investment Alternatives

(Problem 10-41) Grosvenor Industries has designated \$1.2 million for capital investment expenditures during the upcoming year.  Its cost of capital is 14 percent.  Any unused funds will earn the cost of capital rate.  The following investment opportunities along with their required investment and estimated net present values have been identified:

ProjectNet InvestmentNPVProjectNet InvestmentNPVA\$200,000\$22,000F\$250,000.00\$30,000.00B\$275,000\$21,000G\$100,000.00\$7,000.00C\$150,000\$6,000H\$200,000.00\$18,000.00D\$190,000-\$19,000I\$210,000.00\$4,000.00E\$500,000\$40,000J\$250,000.00\$35,000.00

In your response, complete the following:

• Rank the projects using the profitability index. Considering the limit on funds available, which projects should be accepted?
• Using the NPV, which projects should be accepted, considering the limit on funds available?
• If the available investment funds are reduced to only \$1,000,000:
• Does the list of accepted projects change from Part 2?
• What is the opportunity cost of the eliminated \$200,000?

1. The annual demand for a product has been projected to be 2,000 units. This demand is assumed to be constant throughout the year. The ordering cost is \$20 per order, and the holding cost is 20 percent of the purchase cost. Currently, the purchase cost is \$40 per unit. There are 250 working days per year. Whenever an order is placed, it is known that the entire order will arrive on a truck in six days. If the total holding cost for the year is \$2,000, how many units does the company order at a time?
300
400
500
600
none of the above

2. A post office has a single line for customers waiting for the next available postal clerk. There are two postal clerks who work at the same rate. The arrival rate of customers follows a Poisson distribution, while the service time follows an exponential distribution. The average arrival rate is three per minute and the average service rate is two per minute for each of the two clerks. What proportion of time are both clerks idle?
0.643
0.250
0.750
0.143

3. Customers enter the waiting line at a cafeteria on a first-come, first-served basis. The arrival rate follows a Poisson distribution, while service times follow an exponential distribution. If the average number of arrivals is four per minute and the average service rate of a single server is seven per minute, what is the average number of customers in the system?
0.43
1.67
0.57
1.33
none of the above

4. When using Excel’s Solver to input and solve a linear programming problem, it is essential that one perform an additional task before submitting the formulation. That important additional function is:
guessing the values of the variables.
putting in a value for the objective function.
choosing the options for assuming both a linear model and non-negative variables.
resetting the parameters.
none of the above.
