Drawing Conventions For Readability

“I’m a manager of the sporting-goods wholesale company that works worldwide to fill up orders from retail sporting-goods stores. The stores are our customers (a few of our people prefer to call them our clients). At this time we worldwide have 15 customers, but we’re endeavoring to broaden our customer foundation by about 10% every year starting this year. Our two biggest customers are Big John’s Sports Emporium in San Francisco and Womansports in Seattle.

For each customer, we must track an ID and a name. We may track an address (including the city, state, zip code, and country) and contact number. We maintain warehouses in various locations to best fill the purchases of our customers. For every order, we must monitor an ID. 2. Add on to the Summit Sporting Goods ERD. “Right now we’ve the world split into five locations: THE UNITED STATES, South America, Africa/Middle East, Asia, and Europe. That’s all we monitor; the ID and name just.

We make an effort to assign each customer to a region so we’ll generally know the best location that to fill up each order. Each warehouse must have an ID. We may monitor and address (including the city, condition, zip code, and country) and phone number. We now have only one warehouse per region, but we’re expecting to have more soon. I manage the order-entry functions for our wholesale sporting-goods business.

My section is responsible for placing and tracking the purchases when our customers call. For every department, we should monitor the ID and name. Sometimes, our customers just mail us the orders when they aren’t in a rush, but frequently they call us or fax us an order.

We are hoping to broaden our business by giving immediate turnaround of order information to our clients. Do you consider we can put this application on the Web? Answer: If the order is received on fax or by telephone, it must have to put inside system using web program, and the customer may be given credentials on web program being created also.

  • Why will customers obtain you instead of somebody else
  • You can continually be told no and say no
  • Secretaries fee
  • Food incidents

3. (Optional) Add on to the Summit SHOE ERD. “We can promise to ship by the very next day so long as the goods are in stock (or inventory) at one of our warehouse locations. When the information is available, we track the amount in stock, the reorder point, maximum stock, a good reason as to why we are out of stock, and the day we restocked that. When the products are shipped, we fax the delivery information through our shipping system automatically. No, I don’t manage that area. My division just means that our customers have the right billing information and verifies that their accounts are in good credit standing.

We also record general comments about a customer. We do make sure that every item they have requested are in stock. For each item, we monitor an ID. We might also monitor that price, quantity, and volume delivered if the given information is available. If they’re in stock, you want to process the order and tell our clients what the order ID is and exactly how much their order total is.

4. (Optional) Add on to the Summit SHOE ERD. “The accounting division is responsible for maintaining the customer information, especially for assigning new customer IDs. My department is permitted to update the customer information only when an order is placed and the billing or ship-to address has changed. No, we are not responsible for choices. That’s all handled by accounts receivable.

I also believe the sales reps get involved because their fee depends on customers who pay! For every merchant, or employee, we must know the ID and last name. Occasionally we need to know the first name, user ID, start date, title, and salary. We might also track the employee’s commission rate percent and any comments about the individual.

Our order-entry personnel are amply trained in our product line. We hold regular conferences with marketing to allow them to inform us of new products. This total results in higher client satisfaction because our order-entry providers can answer a great deal of questions. This is possible because we deal with a few select customers and keep maintaining a specialty product line. For every product, we must know the name and ID. Occasionally we must also know the description, suggested price, and unit of sale. Assumption: Often I’ll have a mix of conventions, depending on the amount of space I have and my preference. Readability and clarity are more important.
