Information Systems homework help

This assignment is listed on the syllabus as “Major research paper” and is worth 10% of your grade. Your paper will be an annotated bibliography, specifically focusing on the topic of using simulations for policy making. The papers you select must address how IT is used to model behavior for policy making.

You paper must be in correct APA format, use correct grammar, and will need to include at five (5) resources, ALL of which must:

1) Be current. Published within the last few years.

2) Be peer-reviewed.

3) Relate directly to using simulations for policy making. The papers you select must address how IT is used to model behavior for policy making.

USE YOUR OWN WORDS!!!! DO NOT PLAGIARIZE!!!!

Remember that an annotation is not the same as an abstract. Abstracts are descriptive. Your annotations are to be evaluative and critical. Give me enough information for me to decide if I’m interested enough to read the paper, and also how you perceive the paper. Don’t go skimpy on these annotations, but DO NOT write too much here. Quality is far more important that quantity. This exercise is for each of you to demonstrate that you can identify, categorize, and digest multiple research papers.

Every resource you choose must be peer reviewed. That means the paper must have undergone a formal peer review before being published in a journal or presented at a conference. You must ensure that your resources have undergone rigorous reviews. In most cases, you can find out the review process for a conference or journal by visiting the appropriate web site. Do not simply assume that a resource is peer reviewed – check it out.

Case Study

Course Name:  Access Control

Do a case analysis for the case mentioned below. Make certain that the report covers all the major elements of the case. It should indicate clearly which case has been analyzed, the Private Sector, the Public Sector or the Critical Infrastructure.

Make sure to follow APA style. Please make sure the submission is 2 – 3 pages in length and meet the minimum APA formatting guidelines:

•    12-pt, Times New Roman font •    Double-spaced •    1” margins on all sides •    Paraphrasing of content – Demonstrate that you understand the case by summarizing the case in your own words. Direct quotes should be used minimally. •    Reference Section: APA formatting guidelines.  Be sure to include at least three reference sources.

•    In-text citations

Case :

Critical Infrastructure Case Study:

Power plants are an important part of critical infrastructure and local, state,

and national economies. Therefore, power plants need deep and multilayered

access controls due to concerns over physical security. There are a number of

sensitive areas that must be secured, and various employees need different

levels of access to these locations. At a plant in the upper Midwest, this

access is handled with identity badges that include images of the user and an

RFID with the user’s access rights.

The RFID handles access through multiple levels. There is a security

checkpoint at the entrance to the parking lot and at the entrance to the

building. Both points require a badge to enter. From there, the badge allows

personnel to enter the facilities they are authorized to enter. It also acts as

“something you have” for multipoint authentication onto secure systems.

These are all standard functions for an RFID badge system.

The badges also have an automatic deactivation feature, which is useful for

certain personnel. Maintenance personnel, for example, do not have enhanced

access and do not require access to secured areas of the site. However, the

maintenance team may need access to any area of the facility regardless of its

sensitivity in the case of a breakdown or special project. To allow for this, the

badges can be granted access rights that decay over time. This allows for

temporary access to secure areas that is then automatically revoked over a

number of hours or days. This lowers administrative time and reduces the risk

of human error in rights assignment.

Details of the taskCASE STUDY: Williams Limited

 

WILLIAMS is a limited company, whose head office in based in South Africa. The company has been operation in the UK for the past 10 years. WILLIAMS provides financial services to a number of organisations which include SME’s, property developers and investment property funds in the UK and Africa. For the past 10 years, WILLIAMS has been a profit making firm as it has retained its previous clients, in addition to capturing an increasing share of the market. However, the finance director of WILLIAMS has recently got in touch with your professional consulting firm, and has engaged your firm with the mandate to provide them with an explanation of the cash flow problem that WILLIAMS Limited had been facing. The company is also dependent on the parent based in South Africa for and when required.

In the past month there has been a number of meetings in London and South Africa where it has been agreed that WILLIAMS Limited should do their best to expand the business and raise the required capital in England, or perhaps in Europe, so as not to depend so much on cash coming from the parent company all the time. Consequently, the management of WILLIAMS is considering the followings:

New Software

The current product that Williams Limited has to offer mostly to specialist developers and investment funds companies is outdated. The company is looking to invest in a new product and there are two proposals on offer. The details of these two proposals are outlined below.

Advanced Suite

Advanced Suite 

Draft figures

£’000
Year 0 1 2 3 4 5
New Software cost 9,000          
Working Capital 850 610 790 310 730  
Sales Revenue   3400 6300 7500 8900 9500
Less:            
Module A   (420.00) (600.00) (800.00) (900.00) (1,110.00)
Module B   (1,010.00) (1,400.00) (1,600.00) (2,100.00) (1,900.00)
Overheads   (230.00) (240.00) (330.00) (300.00) (300.00)

 

All of the above estimates have been prepared in terms of present day cost and prices. Assume that cash flows arise at the end of each period. In addition

  • Revenues are expected to rise by 4% in price terms per year from year 1 (start of year 2) the budget estimated selling price at start was £120.
  • Overheads and working capital are expected to rise by 4% per year from year 1(start of year 1)
  • The cost of Module A and Module B are expected to rise in line with inflation of 4% per year from the beginning of year 1.
  • The cost of Technicians, who have come from the South Africa have not been taken into consideration in the forecast and are as follows:

Technician (T1): Will be paid £120 per hour and expected number of hours for T1 are 1,400hrs. The rate paid is expected to rise in line with inflation at 4% per year from year 2 and the number of hours is expected to reduce by 3% per year, every year from year 2 onwards.

Technician 2 (T2): Will be paid £110 per hour and expected number of hours for T2 are 1,400hrs. The rate paid is expected to go up in line with inflation at 4% per year from year 2 and the number of hours is expected to reduce by 3% per year, every year from year 2 onwards.

If WILLIAMS Limited invests in Advanced Suite, then the discount rate that would be required to assess the NPV would be 12%. The table above shows the estimated outgoings and inflows for the project.

Standard Suite

Standard Suite is the second of two proposals, the expected life of this software will also be 5 years and its working capital requirements, the cost of the new software, expected revenue, Module costs and overheads are as follows:

  Draft figures        
Standard Suite £’000
Year 0 1 2 3 4 5
New Software cost 8,500          
Working Capital 600 620 820 950 1100  
Sales Revenue   5500 6800 9100 10850 11250
Less:            
Module 1   (330) (520) (800) (1060) (1,450)
Module 2   (1,350) (1,860) (2,300) (2,700) (2,900)
Overheads   (190) (240) (280) (320) (370)

 

All of the above estimates have been prepared in terms of present day costs and prices. Assume that cash flows arise at the end of each period. In addition, you need to take into account the costs of Technicians, inflation and the rise in the revenue, overheads and working capital consideration, which are the same for the Advanced Suite. The selling price per package of the Standard Suite is £550. The discount will also be the same as with Advanced Suite.

If WILLIAMS invests in Standard Suite, then the discount rate that would be required to assess the NPV would be 12%.

New Drop-in Centre

The manager in charge of sales has just informed your company that they plan to open a Drop-in Centre in London and it is hoped that this Centre will be opened for business on 1April 2020. You have also been informed that to start with, the company will only sell 2 types of service as packages: Entry Level package (ELP) and Advanced Level package (ALP). This will be done to test the market and see if the business will break-even in the same period. These two are the most popular asked for packages and will be offered at £300 for ELP and £400 for ALP.

The company has provided you with the following information regarding the costs and estimated sales for the period mentioned above.

WILLIAMS plan to put in £6,000 as start-up capital and plan to sell a total of 1320 (combined) of ELP and ALP for the same period. They are not sure which of the two services will produce the most profits for WILLIAMS.

Total budgeted sales for each month are as follows: April 440, May 440 and June 440, of which 30% of each month will be for ALP. You will be required to assess the best product combination of sales for the period.

To help with the setup of the Centre, the company has just concluded a deal with one of the high street banks to get a loan of £21,000 on the 1st of May 2020. The interest on this loan will be 3.5% to be paid every month. The company will be required to make 12 equal payments to repay the loan starting end of June 2020.

Financial information

As mentioned above the company plans to sell a total of 1260 product packages between 1st April and June 2020. The fixed costs for the period are as below:

Rent £ 15,500  
Telephone £ 1,900  
Loan Interest £ 1,470  
Insurance £ 6,200  
Electricity and Gas £ 3,000  
Business Rates £ 4,500  
Fixed cost specific to products ELP ALP
Marketing 21,000 £ 25,000
Administration £ 7,500 £ 11,500
Staff Salary £ 19,500 £ 23,000

 

From their costs estimates, the variable cost of the services are £180 for the ELP and £210 for the ALP. The fixed costs are for the whole period, so they are not affected by the level of service. However, the variable costs will increase with services output (ie sales output multiplied with variable cost per product).

Revenue from the sale of ELP and ALP will be on the basis of 30% cash in the same month, and the remaining 70% credit to be paid the following month.

Requirement: 

You will be required to write a management report to the management of Williams limited directors in which the following points should be discussed.

  • Provide an explanation on the different sources of funding the company can have and their advantages and disadvantages. You should make recommendations as to how the company can manage the same to help in the planned expansion program.
  • Analyse the Investment proposals by using NPV and provide recommendations. You should also briefly comment on other investment proposal techniques that Williams Limited may use, and the limitations of using those techniques
