points

Especially for You Jewelers is a small jewelry company in a
college town. Over the last couple of years, it has experienced a tremendous
increase in its business. However, its financial performance has not kept pace
with its growth. The current system, which is partly manual and partly
automated, doesn’t track accounts receivables sufficiently, and the company is
finding it difficult to determine the reasons why the receivables are so high.
The company runs frequent specials to attract customers but has no idea whether
these efforts are profitable or if the benefit—if there is one—comes from
associated sales. Especially for You Jewelers wants to increase repeat sales to
its existing customers; thus, it needs to develop a customer database. It also
wants to install a new direct sales and accounting system to help solve the
outlined problems.

The new direct sales and accounting system for
Especially for You Jewelers will be an important element in the growth and
success of the jewelry company. The direct sales portion must track every sale,
be able to link to the inventory system for cost data, and provide a daily
profit and loss report. The customer database must be able to produce purchase
histories to assist management in preparing special mailings and special sales
to existing customers. Detailed credit balances and aged accounts for each
customer would help to solve the problem with the high balance of accounts
receivables. Special notice letters and credit history reports would help
management reduce accounts receivable.

  5. Using Microsoft Visio or an open source alternative such as Dia, complete a
    fully-developed use case description for each scenario identified. Note: The
