A Decision Structure is the code that makes a program do different things

Computers are sometimes called, "Thinking Machines" and the main thing that has to happen when a computer is "thinking" is decision making or problem solving. As thus decision making with a computer is when 'decision structure and looping' comes into play.

Problem Solving

· In the most general terms, problem solving involves finding a sequence of steps that allow one to move from a given starting point to the goal.
· In order to take a step one must know what options, or operations, are available.
· There are a number of well defined operations for procedural programming.

Control Structures

· How are instructions arranged so that a computer ...

In this final Case of the Integrated Case Project, you will take a look at feedback loops in Industrial Service Industries of America, Inc. Identify one Balancing Loop and one Reinforcing Loop. Draw on the background readings from this module in constructing your diagnosis. Within each of these feedback loops there are opportunities for learning and improvement.


Present two cases in this paper. For each Feedback Loop (Balancing and Reinforcing) Make a Case for the Learning Opportunities.
