    I think we need a forum for this long case study. Any ideas of what will come up?

    seems quite a tricky case study, could be something to do with the poor objectives or the little influence hamish has as the managing director

    totally agree, objectives are not even published and are really vague. He seems uninterested with the success of the company. the only thing he cares about it designing!

    He said he wanted more visually appealing data, preps that is what they should thinking about. ie bar charts, line graphs for data not just tables.

    I think they'll ask about the high capacity, either how to solve it or what it means for ADaPT

    yeah and the capacity may be linked with 1a and be a time series analysis!

    I agree, I think question 1a is going to be a time series analysis. So far they've used
    1. ARR and Payback
    2. Ratios

    The first questions is always a calculation and the two above don't show that it's going to be something simple like percentage change (Table 1 or 3). The only options are ratios again or TSA.


    Also question two has both times been about objectives, but the effect of different things:
    CC- Legal Identity on Objectives
    LCL - Interest rates on Objectives

    This time may be:
    ADaPT - GDP and Government spending on objectives

    pretty nice exam. in particular the last question. The first question for trend series analysis appeared weird at first but then i understood that i just had to continue the trend and work out the difference between the -2.00 variation, the trend number in order to get the actual output.

    definitely. I liked it but didn't get to finish last question. I didn't figure out how to work the actual output because there were so many ways i thought of, so in the end i just guessed an answer as i was running out of time. All the questions were pretty nice.
