Assignment: Select a company for which you have a working
knowledge including goals, mission, strategy, and culture. In
addition to a working knowledge of the company, you must
have access to people in both the IT functions and in the
business who will be willing to allow you to interview them to
Tell a story of how the information technology function
supports the business. Remember from your case study analysis
work that not all organizations employ information technology
well. Many treat the function and the cost as an expense. Some
treat it as an investment. Analyze the facts your discover to
explain what information technology means for your chosen
organization.
Your analysis should be a concise view of what is the condition
of IT at your organization. Make sure that the sections relate to
each other as an integrated report. Note in each topic area, the
direction the organization should be heading. See Brown, et al
text glossary and text for abbreviations and mnemonics. Vendor
and product names and versions are not necessary but very
helpful.
Required:
1. Company description
Industry and company goals and objectives
Company culture
Market position and how this impacts the investment in IT
2. Work System Snapshots to illustrate your analysis.
Use the concepts introduced in this course to discuss the
technology components. Include business processes, products
and services, and customers.
3. Profile of individuals you interview
Explain the function(s), role(s), and decision making authority
of people you interview.
4. Analysis of IT
The following lists are included to help you plan what you will
investigate and address. Your organization may not have some
of these technologies or may be discussing using them. The list
is not intended to be exhaustive or prescriptive. You may have

information technology related to the success of the
business/organization.
6. References
Make sure you cite all sources. This project is not intended to
be a personal recollection. Rather, consult documentation,
interview people, and search for news sources. Do not, however,
violate the proprietary rules of your organization.
If you do not have an organization for which you can perform
this analysis, then contact your facilitator for an alternate
assignment.

Homework #3
Create a flowchart for each of these two homework problems;
hand drawn is sufficient, or you
can use whichever drawing program you like. Use one
workbook (save as file type *.xlsm) with
a User Interface Worksheet (UIW) and VBA module for each of
these two homework problems.
Submit the flowcharts and workbook electronically via Moodle,
and submit hardcopies of all
work (flowcharts, worksheets and VBA code modules) at the
beginning of class on Wednesday,
July 8, or at the ME Department office by 3:30 PM on
Wednesday, July 8. Be sure your name is
at the top of all pages.
General programming expectations: Include logic in your code
to protect it from errors caused
by inappropriate or invalid user inputs, or other process cases
that may cause runtime errors. For
example, if division by zero can occur, test for that condition
and write code to handle it
gracefully. Message boxes are an appropriate means of alerting
your user to inappropriate or
invalid inputs to Sub procedures. Never use Input boxes in
homework or project assignments.
Hint for determining if a worksheet cell is blank (empty): If
Cells(irow, icol) = "",
then the cell is blank.
Problem 1: Polar & Cartesian Coordinates Converter
Polar coordinates are related to Cartesian Coordinates by the
following equations.
2 2 1
cos( ) sin( ) tan ( )
y
x r y r r x y
x
Write a well-structured Sub procedure that reads inputs for x, y,
r, and θ from worksheet cells
B3, B4, B5, and B6, respectively. Input units of x, y, and r will
be millimeters, and input units
of θ will be in degrees. Name these input cells and create
appropriate labels for them.
Process the inputs according to this logic:
1. If the x and y inputs are both zero (or blank) AND the r and θ
inputs are NOT both zero, then
calculate x and y outputs corresponding with the given r and θ,
and write their values to cells B3
and B4, respectively.
2. If the r and θ inputs are both zero (or blank) AND the x and y
inputs are NOT both zero, then
calculate the r and θ outputs corresponding with the given x and
y, and write their values to cells
B5 and B6, respectively.
3. For all other conditions, do nothing.
Add a Run Button to the worksheet and assign it to your Sub
procedure. Test your Sub
procedure with inputs x = 2.5mm and y = 7.1mm to compute r
and θ. Then test your Sub with
inputs r = 5.5mm and θ = 49° to compute x and y. Ensure that
your code calculates θ correctly,
even for the case when x=0.
Problem 2: Statistics
Write a well-structured Sub procedure to compute the average
and standard deviation of data
entered by the user in column A of the user interface worksheet,
beginning in row 1. Your user
may enter as many data values as he/she wants, so your code
must determine how many data
values are entered. The end of the data values list will be
determined by the first blank cell in
column A.
Design your Sub to read the values into an array, and then
compute the average and standard
deviation of the data, using the values stored in the array. The
formulas for the average and
standard deviation are:
Average Standard Deviation
1
n
i
i
y
y
n
2
2 1
1
( )
1
n
in
i
i
i
y
y
y
n
s
n
Calculated results display: Write the number of input data
values, and the resulting average and
standard deviation on the worksheet, in properly labeled and
named cells.
If the user enters less than 2 data values, display a message in
the cell for the standard deviation
result, alerting the user that at least two data values are required
to calculate a standard deviation.
If any of the user’s data values is not numeric, use a Message
Box to alert the user of this error,
and informing the user which line the error was found on. In
this event, the cells displaying the
calculated results will be blank.
Create a “Run” button to execute your Sub procedure, and test
your Sub by entering at least 20
data values.

Tarn Homework #3 Create a flowchart for each of these two homework problems; hand drawn is sufficient, or you can use whichever drawing program you like. Use one workbook (save as file type *.xlsm) with a User Interface Worksheet (UIW) and VBA module for each of these two homework problems. Submit the flowcharts and workbook electronically via Moodle, and submit hardcopies of all work (flowcharts, worksheets and VBA code modules) at the
  • 8. beginning of class on Wednesday, July 8, or at the ME Department office by 3:30 PM on Wednesday, July 8. Be sure your name is at the top of all pages. General programming expectations: Include logic in your code to protect it from errors caused by inappropriate or invalid user inputs, or other process cases that may cause runtime errors. For example, if division by zero can occur, test for that condition and write code to handle it gracefully. Message boxes are an appropriate means of alerting your user to inappropriate or invalid inputs to Sub procedures. Never use Input boxes in homework or project assignments. Hint for determining if a worksheet cell is blank (empty): If Cells(irow, icol) = "", then the cell is blank. Problem 1: Polar & Cartesian Coordinates Converter Polar coordinates are related to Cartesian Coordinates by the following equations. 2 2 1 cos( ) sin( ) tan ( ) y
  • 9. x r y r r x y x Write a well-structured Sub procedure that reads inputs for x, y, r, and θ from worksheet cells B3, B4, B5, and B6, respectively. Input units of x, y, and r will be millimeters, and input units of θ will be in degrees. Name these input cells and create appropriate labels for them. Process the inputs according to this logic: 1. If the x and y inputs are both zero (or blank) AND the r and θ inputs are NOT both zero, then calculate x and y outputs corresponding with the given r and θ, and write their values to cells B3 and B4, respectively. 2. If the r and θ inputs are both zero (or blank) AND the x and y inputs are NOT both zero, then calculate the r and θ outputs corresponding with the given x and y, and write their values to cells B5 and B6, respectively. 3. For all other conditions, do nothing.
  • 10. Add a Run Button to the worksheet and assign it to your Sub procedure. Test your Sub procedure with inputs x = 2.5mm and y = 7.1mm to compute r and θ. Then test your Sub with inputs r = 5.5mm and θ = 49° to compute x and y. Ensure that your code calculates θ correctly, even for the case when x=0. Problem 2: Statistics Write a well-structured Sub procedure to compute the average and standard deviation of data entered by the user in column A of the user interface worksheet, beginning in row 1. Your user may enter as many data values as he/she wants, so your code must determine how many data values are entered. The end of the data values list will be determined by the first blank cell in column A. Design your Sub to read the values into an array, and then compute the average and standard deviation of the data, using the values stored in the array. The formulas for the average and
  • 11. standard deviation are: Average Standard Deviation 1 n i i y y n 2 2 1 1 ( ) 1 n in i
  • 12. i i y y y n s n Calculated results display: Write the number of input data values, and the resulting average and standard deviation on the worksheet, in properly labeled and named cells.
  • 13. If the user enters less than 2 data values, display a message in the cell for the standard deviation result, alerting the user that at least two data values are required to calculate a standard deviation. If any of the user’s data values is not numeric, use a Message Box to alert the user of this error, and informing the user which line the error was found on. In this event, the cells displaying the calculated results will be blank. Create a “Run” button to execute your Sub procedure, and test your Sub by entering at least 20 data values.
