For this exercise, please select one software package that you use fairly frequently, and feel reasonably comfortable with. Be sure it is one that is neither proprietary nor classified, in the use sense -- that is, one that is not restricted in its access or use to one particular company or agency, but one that is potentially useable by a variety of different users to accomplish a variety of different ends -- so that you can write freely about it. The test for whether a given program works for this assignment is whether it's potentially something that another student might also be able to write about from another perspective.

Now tell us something about the program

Please make sure to address the following:

Describe the program, what it does, what kind of hardware it runs on, and what other software it is tied into.
Identify who makes it, and what other kinds of software they make. To the degree that you can, perhaps by reviewing the company's web site, provide a history of the software and how it developed to its present state.
Briefly outline the benefits you see coming to the users of the software as a result of using it.
If possible, describe some of your history with the program and any interesting experiences you've had with it. If you had a choice, what more features you would like to add? How they would impact your productivity?
Conclude with a few sentences providing your own personal overall evaluation of the software and why you make this assessment
include references

30. There are four auto body shops in a community and all claim to promptly serve customers. To check if there is any difference in service, customers are randomly selected from each repair shop and their waiting times in days are recorded. The output from a statistical software package is:

Groups Count Sum Average Variance
Body Shop A 3 15.4 5.133333 0.323333
Body Shop B 4 32 8 1.433333
Body Shop C 5 25.2 5.04 0.748
Body Shop D 4 25.9 6.475 0.595833

Source of Variation SS df MS F p-value
Between Groups 23.37321 3 7.791069 9.612506 0.001632
Within Groups 9.726167 12 0.810514
Total 33.09938 15
Is there evidence to suggest a difference in the mean waiting times at the four body shops? Use the .05 significance level.
12. For many years TV executives used the guideline that 30 percent of the audience were watching each of the prime-time networks and 10 percent were watching cable stations on a weekday night. A random sample of 500 viewers in the Tampa-St. Petersburg, Florida, area last Monday night showed that 165 homes were tuned in to the ABC affiliate, 140 to the CBS affiliate, 125 to the NBC affiliate, and the remainder were viewing a cable station. At the .05 significance level, can we conclude that the guideline is still reasonable?
26. A study regarding the relationship between age and the amount of pressure sales personnel feel in relation to their jobs revealed the following sample information. At the .01 significance level, is there a relationship between job pressure and age?
