needs. You are free to make assumptions and expected to add to the requirements in order to create a realistic system. Note all of the details are described in this document. For example, it is up to you to

define the number and kind of reports that a manager needs to evaluate the running of the business, such as sales or inventory reports, or the type and quantity of data that is necessary as inputs to the system for the IS to be working as desired.

Arts and Craft store:

Beachfront Color sells paints and painting supplies (brushes, canvases, palettes, charcoal, etc.)

and hosts workshops on a drop-in or subscription (several pre-paid classes) basis. Various

workshops are available throughout the year, such as drawing in pencil, watercolor, and oil.

These workshops are usually led by one of several local artists who are contracted by the store.

The workshops are given in the painting studio affiliated with the store and can accommodate

up to 15 participants. The store also collaborates with several students of architecture who offer

consultation and classes to clients on creating computer graphics and visualizations in 3D. These

consultations are usually one-on-one, but can be also done in a small group in a workshop

setting. The clients need to bring their own computers to these sessions, however, the store has

5 laptops to rent out to those who need them. The store manager needs an information system

that will track the performance of the operations (sales and labor expenses) and also the

scheduling of the workshops and individual sessions and classes by the contracted artists or
