Title: Laptop Selection

As a manager in a business you will often have to decide which of several alternative products to purchase. A Weighted Scoring Model can help you make a reasoned decision that you will be able to justify to your manager. For evaluation purposes the Total Cost of Ownership is more important than the purchase price, so this needs to be included in your model.

For the purposes of this coursework, assume that you are a manager working for an international company with a team of sales executives who need to be in constant contact with Head Office. The Head Office is in your own country, and there is a group of managers based there. Some staff will need to use their laptops worldwide.

You have been tasked to evaluate a range of laptops with built-in email and other functionality (e.g. camera, media player, organiser, browser, GPS) to determine which is the best one for the company to purchase for all its managers and sales executives. You have been particularly asked to consider the SAMSUNG Series 5 11.6" Touchscreen Convertible and the HP ENVY m6-1178sa 15.6" as well as other makes (e.g. Lenovo, Asus). Note that model numbers may vary according to region, if so, use nearest equivalents. You will need to consider the usability and functionality of the system, both now and in the future, and the Total Cost of Ownership.

Members of staff currently use a range of models, which is expensive, difficult to manage, and does not provide the level of functionality needed by the company. You have also been asked to plan the implementation of the new laptops to all four hundred staff over the period of a month. You need to decide how this is to be done, identifying responsibilities, milestones, costs, etc. Make sure you allow for testing such that the chosen system meets your requirements, and allow for post-implementation evaluation.3
