Assignment Choice #1: Decision Support Systems

The owner of a hardware store wants to design a decision support system to predict how many and which type of nails she should sell and what information she needs to do so. The scenario is described below:

Consider that you offer six types of nails and can make as many as you need of each. These are:
4-inch nails
3.5-inch nails
3-inch nails
2.5-inch nails
2-inch nails
1.5-inch nails

The cost of making each type of nail depends on the size of the nail. The costs and selling prices are listed in the table below, along with the weights. The nails will be sold in boxes of up to 30. There must be no more than 10, but no less than five, of each of three types of nails in each box. The nails in each box should weigh no more than 20 ounces. You’re looking for the combination with the highest profit using a trial-and-error method. A spreadsheet would be helpful for completing this project. You’ll most likely find that you identify some promising paths to follow right away and will concentrate on those to reach the best one.

 NAIL WEIGHT (in ounces) COST (in cents) SELLING PRICE (cents) 4-inch 1.00 4.0 8 3.5-inch 0.85 3.5 6 3-inch 0.70 3.0 5 2.5-inch 0.50 2.5 4 2-inch 0.25 2.0 3 1.5-inch 0.10 1.5 2

Justify at least three different considerations you looked at while attempting to come up with the most profitable solution. What would go into such a system if you were the owner of the store and your business profits were at stake? Your submission must be a minimum of two pages, double-spaced and comply with CSU-Global Guide to Writing and APA Requirements. You may want to review the assignment criteria found in the Rubric.

Assignment Choice #2: How Would You Classify People?

Some have suggested that neural networks could be applied to people to indicate how likely they are to develop a disease or even become criminals. The idea is to add a child’s personal characteristics, demographics, and genealogy into a neural network, and the neural network will classify if that youngster is at risk for a disease or for aberrant behavior. For this assignment, choose either susceptibility to disease or to criminal behavior.

Make the following lists, explaining why you chose each one. Justify at least two different considerations:

1. What personal characteristics would be useful?
2. What demographic factors would strongly influence a person’s future?
3. What, if any, inherited characteristics can predict a child’s future?

Your submission must be a minimum of two pages, double-spaced and comply with CSU-Global Guide to Writing and APA Requirements.
