    I really need help to create a program but im stuck on where to start. need to use CSV files for the 4 types of phone.

    Task 3
    Troubleshooting systems need to identify the device and load the correct troubleshooting routine before
    analysing the problem.
    For example, initialising the troubleshooting routine may require this conversation:
    System: ‘What type of device?’
    User: ‘Phone’
    System: ‘Which make of phone is it?’
    User: ‘IPhone’
    System: ‘Which model of phone is it?’
    User: ‘IPhone5’
    System: ‘Which version, S or C?’
    User: ‘S’
    System: ‘How much memory, 8GB, 16GB or 32GB?’
    User: ‘16’
    System: ‘What is the problem?’
    User: ‘There is no display!’
    If no solution is found, the data is allocated a case number and stored to be sent to a technician.
    Analyse the requirements for this system and design, develop, test and evaluate a program to provide
    troubleshooting advice for several devices. The system should identify the device and load a file of
    suitable questions and responses for that device. You will need to create two files to test the system,
    for third or subsequent devices it is acceptable to show that they have been recognised with a simple
    acknowledgement. This is a demonstration version of the system and need not deal with all potential problems.
