# CMIS 102 Intro to Problem Solving and Algorithm Design –

Don’t offer to do this if you don’t know Computer Science C + code

In this homework, you will design a program to perform the following task:

Calculate the total price based on several key parts required to build a state-of-the-art gaming computer. The user will have the option of selecting different parts. For example, Windows 7, Windows 8 or Mac OS/X for Operating systems, 4 GB, 8 GB or 12 GB for RAM and 15”,17” or 22” Monitors.

There are 5 components of your submission including:

• Program Description- A detailed, clear description of the program you are building.
• Analysis- Demonstrates your thought process and steps used to analyze the problem. Be sure to include the required input and output and how you will obtain the required output from the given input? Also, include your variable names and definitions. Be sure to describe the necessary formulas and sample calculations that might be needed. You should talk about how you determined your computer part prices.
• Test plan – Prepare at least 3 sets of input data (Test data) along with their expected output for testing your program.  Your test data can be presented in the form of a table as follows (note: feel free to adapt to your design)
• Flowchart – Provide a flowchart for your design. You can use Word, Powerpoint, Visio or any software you have available that will allow to draw shapes and connectors.
• Pseudocode- Provide pseudocode of your overall design that fulfills the requirements of the project

All of these components should be placed in word document for submission.

1. You should research current prices of the computer parts on Internet sites such as amazon.com or newegg.com.
2. You can assume a computer will consist of the following components:

CPU
Case
Power supply
Motherboard
Hard Drive
RAM
DVD
Sound Card
Monitor
Graphics Card
Operating System

I would recommend you keep the option choices limited to 3 different components, or your program will really grow fast. For example, you could provide options for the Operating System (Windows 7, Windows 8 or Mac OS/X), the RAM (4 MB, 8 MB, 12 MB) and the Hard Drive Size (500 GB, 1 TB, 1.5 TB) and leave everything else as a baseline. These are just examples. I leave it up to you to determine which components you want the user to select options.  Be sure your prices are realistic.

1. There is much flexibility for this project.  You should reach a unique design. I recommend keeping it simple at first and then add more user options if you have time.

Example application test data:

 Test Case # Input Expected Output 1 Baseline Cost: \$500CPU Option 1 (2.2 GHz,\$400)Monitor Option 2 (Dell,\$200)RAM Option 1 (4 GB,\$89)(Total price would be \$500 + cost of CPU+ cost of Monitor + Cost of Ram) Total Price = \$1189 2 Your Computer selection options Your output 3 Your Computer selection options Your output

Submission requirements:

Your completed assignment should be saved as Word document and submitted to your assignment area no later than the due date listed in the syllabus. Your document should be neat, well-written with minimal grammatical and spelling errors. Your name should be clearly listed on the first page along with the class/section, professor and due date. Your document should contain page numbers at the bottom of each page. Single or double space line formatting is acceptable.

You should name the file yournamehw1.docx (or yournamehw1.doc). So if my name was Julie Smith, I would name my document juliesmithhw1.docx.
