You have recently graduated from UWE and are now employed as a quantitative analyst with Cape Virgo, a consultancy firm that carries out specialist assignments for corporate clients. Your boss, an Account Manager, recently received the e-mails below from two clients asking Cape Virgo for assistance. She has asked you to draft a paper reply to the e-mails using appropriate software.
Think carefully about the approach and model you might use to analyse the problems. Consider the nature of the reader and use your own good judgement in drafting appropriate replies which, as you will see from the marking scheme, count for 40% of the assignment's marks. This task assesses your ability to effectively communicate the results of an analysis, and not just your technical competence in modelling and interpreting results. You may use Excel.
The breakdown of marks is:
Correct choice of method 10%
Correct analysis including suitable use of a spreadsheet 50%
Content, clarity and appropriateness of your written reply 40%
Deadline: 12 AUGEST
