Abstract

The case involves a new venture into the retail home improvement stores for Crown Zellerbach. The case discusses the need for a data processing system to be developed for the purchase, distribution, and accounts payable systems. Automated vs. nonautomated systems are considered in a feasibility study. Much of the discussion focuses on the uncertainty of the new venture and how this may affect the costs and benefits of the decisions of a manual vs. automated system. Although not necessary for student analysis, a computerised model is available from the authors to aid in the present value calculations and sensitivity analysis.
