For Part 2 of the Module Review activity, you will submit a Microsoft Excel®spreadsheet. Your instructor will use the rubric attached to this assignment to grade your work.
In this practical assignment, you are to create a simple spreadsheet utilizing Excel or a compatible application that will be the primary component of your DSS. You are the IT Department Manager employed by an imaginary Fixed Base Operator (FBO) located in Somewhere, Kansas.
The DSS that you create will be utilized by the Corporate Finance Department Manager to reach structured decisions relating to aviation fuel purchasing contracts. To be able to arrive at those decisions, the manager needs data that represents the pricing for two distinct types of aviation fuel, Jet Fuel and Avgas available from the five different vendors with which the company has accounts. The DSS should present the lowest pricing in U.S. dollars for each of the two types of aviation fuel along with the vendors that offer that pricing.
In Row 1, create a header row with the following labels in bold font:
In Column A, Rows 2 through 6, list the following vendors:
In Columns B and C, Rows 2 through 6, enter imaginary pricing values for all vendors and both types of fuel, keeping the range of values between $5.00 and $10.00 for each type of fuel.
Format the cells in Columns B and C, Rows 2 through 6 as “Currency” with two decimal places.
