x 2. ? Number of bunches of underwater plants = length of liner x width of liner x 5. ? Cost of pond liner = length x width x cost per square metre. ? 5 bunches of underwater plants for every square metre of pond liner. ? Round up to the nearest whole bunch. Performance Criteria In order to complete this task successfully: ? It will be easy to change the length, width and depth of the pond. ? It will be easy to alter all the figures. ? There will be a formula to round up decimals to the next whole number. ? The customers name will be on the sheet. ? It will work out the final cost of any pond kit according to the data I input. ? It will fit on one side of A4. My system needs to be checked against a pond that has already been worked out: Mrs. Smith wants a pond 2m x 1.5m and 1m deep. I will input this data in my spreadsheet system, and I will expect the following results: Liner length = 2.5 x 1m + 2m = 4.5m Liner width = 2.5 x 1m +1.5m = 4m Liner size = 4.5 x 4m = 18m2 Cost of pond liner = �4.40 x 18 = �79.20 Cost of underliner = �0.90 x 18 =�16.20 Underwater plant bunches = 5 x 18 x �0.50 = �45.00 Decorative plant packs = (4.5 + 4) ...read more.

Conclusion

? The Garden Centre's logo. ? The light condition needed by the plants on the list. ? Four columns: 'Common Name', 'Maximum Height', 'Maximum Width', and 'Flowering Period.' Data Needed In order to complete this database and list I will need the following data: ? The name of the Garden Centre: The Plant House Garden Centre. ? The Garden Centre's logo, which will be found on disk. ? The Plant Data file which contains information for all the Garden Centre's plants. The parts of this file that I will need for my database are: Common Name, Maximum Height, Maximum Width, Flowering Period and Light Needed. This file will be found on disk. Performance Criteria In order to complete this task successfully: ? The system will be easy to use. ? There will be no more than the four column headings on the list. ? The list will fit on one page of A4. ? The Garden Centre's name and logo and the light needed will be at the top of the page. My system will be tested by finding plants less than or equal to 0.75m high and less than or equal to 1.00m wide. The plants must be able to grow in shade. I expect my system to find the following four plants: Skimmia, Primula, Greater Periwinkle and Shield Fern. If my system finds different plants, then I need to check and change my system. ...read more.
