A1 Cars is a car dealership located in Forth Worth, Texas.
The company has grown significantly over the last 5 years and due to physical space restrictions they have decided to expand their operations by opening another site in
Denton, Texas.
This location was chosen so that they could market their cars more easily in the Southern Oklahoma area.
The new site will only have one building, and will bring an additional 25 employees on to the company payroll.
Employees are as follows:
There will be one general manager with an executive secretary, as well as three shift managers.
The service/parts departments will employee a total of 12 employees. Five of these employees are mechanics.
Book keeping department will employee three employees, and there will be 5 salesmen.
All applications for financing/loans must be approved through the parent company located in Fort Worth.
Even though the company has grown they have a limited budget to get their new company network, “including computers” up and running.
You are in charge of advising the A1 Cars Company on what type of network schema they will need for their new location.
The new building will be hardwired before you start you analysis.
The Project Manager asks that you submit your proposal with detailed information that he/she can understand.
