Pot N Kettle is a fast-food restaurant offering all kinds of potatoes. The manager has a 30-second time limit for serving customers. Servers at the counter say they could achieve that limit if the form they must fill out and give to the kitchen were simplified. The information from the completed form is entered into the computer system at the end of the day, when the data entry person enters the kind of potato purchased, additional toppings purchased with their quantities, and the price charged. The current form is difficult for servers to visually scan and fill out quickly.
a. Design and draw a form that lists possible potatoes and toppings in a manner that is easy for counter servers and kitchen crew to visually scan, and can also be used as input to the inventory system that is on the extranet connecting Pot N Kettle and Idaho potato growers. Choose a size that is sensible and be sure to indicate the size of the form if it is not drawn at full-scale. You may use MS Word to produce this form if you don’t have any other drawing software available. You won’t be judged on the aesthetics of the form, just the content and layout. Be sure to observe the guidelines for good form design.
b. Design and draw a representation of a display screen that can be used by the servers and clerks to fill in the information captured on the form. Again, you may use MS Word for this purpose.
c. Design and draw a display screen based on your screen in part b. This time it should function as a display that shows a kitchen crew member what to prepare for each Pot N Kettle order. List three changes to the screen in part b that you made to adapt it to function as an output display. You may use MS Word to show the layout of the screen.
