    OK people this is not a hard question and hopefully you will give me some good feed back. Here is the scenario

    Me and my group have to get a company a new computer systemup and running etc, ive got the control of the accounts etc an basically what we have to do is look at the current structure of the company and come up witrh ideas.

    The fictional company deals in high quality vituals, which is basically quality old fashoined foods. Now the food they deal in at the moment is biscuits champagne trufles, cheeses, cranbdrrie juice, dried californian figs, honey roast ham, jams , peperoni and so on.

    Now one of my ideas for this compnay is to add more to their menu as currently they have a stop start sort of way , they can be busy one day and crap the next, with the busiest time around christmas. Now what i need from you great people is ideas for foods etc, what you like etc, something that you cant realy get every day from your local shop etc . All ideas will be greatfully recieved.

    Thanks
    Eddie

    shouldn't you be concentrating on the IT aspects of finance, and not sourcing new products?

    Well basically, we have to design a new system for invoices and returns and all the other stuff that you can think of etc. The curent system is quite crap really. One of the main problems of the company is that their current menu etc is not bringing constant buisness etc. So as well as just doing the computer system i want to introduce a new menu etc of foods that would keep the company in buisness for longer and keep the biusness more constant.


    OK the company isnt real but i want to get a good grade in this. We have tutors and lecturers role playing staff from this company and id like to put an idea to them as im sure this wil get us extra marks, and also other people may not go down this route

    Mate, what course is this for? If it's purely a an IT/development course, I wouldn't waste your time on designing a new menu. At the most, you could mention that it might be worthwhile expanding the product base, but at the end of the day, if you write something that isn't to do with the brief/course syllabus it doesn't matter how valid it is, it just won't attract any marks.

    To answer your question though, fresh fruit and veg. I mean stuff that was picked yesterday not stuff that's been sitting in Tesco's warehouse for three weeks after a boat ride from South America. Farm shops and markets are making a killing at the moment because more and more people are picking up on this good eating thing.

    Is it an IT or market research question or a 'breath new life in to this business overall' question?

    Its a bit of both really, we have to come up with a new system etc and i reckon also have to put some new ideas their way

    I chose this one as i was advised strongly against taking the ECDL which is basically how to switch a computer on etc

    Er - the full ECDL is somewhat more than that - and does produce a cert!

    It covers the very basics - true, but also deals with basic use of Word/Excel/Access/Powerpoint. I found it useful for these, as it gave me a rather more structured view of them than the normally hurried "I need a doc now" senario!

    I know what your saying Harry, im only going off what i am hearing here. All the tutors involved in our education have more or less said to go for something more worthwhile to an employer etc.

    The other thing is all the stuff like power point etc is getting used like mad in our other I S subjects.

    BTW im interviewing a company (role played by staff) to try and implement a new computer system to sort our their current drab system. Wish me luck
