The first involved the creation of spreadsheets to resolve some problems for an organization. You will need to model the problem roughly before you start to spreadsheet and you will need to be as organization as possible to create your solution. You will need to use relevant costing approach- this means that there could be a long way to get to the solution, which will not earn you much, and a much quicker way which will reward you. Unfortunately the quicker way involves more thinking. The spreadsheet should be shown as an appendix to the report to management that you will have to write. Note that there will be some degree of repetition between your spreadsheets. You will need to think about how to make your report tidy and well referenced. The written report will be 1000 words in length, plus the spreadsheet appendices, assumptions and any references.

The report will be about 2000 words in length, plus references and appendices (appendices might include your detail about the organization). You must choose a different organization to the one you chose the first time
