Fran’s Virtual Fruit Stand, Part 1

Assignment 1: Fran’s Virtual Fruit Stand, Part 1

Virtual Fruit Stand is an online store that sells several types of
dried fruit. Based on the needs of Fran’s Virtual Fruit stand, you must
design a flowchart using Visual Logic. The flowchart must also be a
fully functional program which follows the design requirements below.

Note: This
program does not require the use of arrays. The program will prompt for
data on a single item, process that data, display any relevant messages
as described below, and then move on to the next item. Use the
“console” option in the output command to display the output in a single
window. Displaying the output can be accomplished with as few as three
(3) variables that simply get overwritten each time the loop repeats.

Using Visual Logic, design a flowchart that is also a fully functional program. According to your design, the program must:

  1. Continually accept data regarding the purchase of fruit until a sentinel value is entered.
  2. Prompt
    the user for each item, and accept the name of the fruit (e.g., “dried
    apples”), the price per pound, and the number of pounds sold in a month.
  3. Display a clear message for items that are considered:
    1. Best-selling items
      Note: Best-selling
      items are identified as those that sell 5,000 or more pounds per month
      on average. For example, an acceptable message may read, “Yellow raisins
      are a best-selling item.”
    2. Big-ticket items
      Note: Big-ticket
      items are identified as those that are best-selling items and also cost
      $4 per pound or more. For example, an acceptable message may read,
      “Freeze-dried blueberries are a big-ticket item.”
    3. High-priced items
      items are identified as those that sell for $7 per pound or more. For
      example, an acceptable message may read, “Dried mangos are a high-priced
    4. Lowest-selling items
      Note: Lowest-selling
      items are identified as those that sell 500 pounds or less per month on
      average. For example, an acceptable message may read, “Dried Ugli Fruit
      is a lowest-selling item.”
    5. High-income generating items
      Note: High-income
      generating items are identified as those that generate $7,000 or more
      per month on average. To determine the income generated per item,
      multiply the price per pound by the number of pounds sold per month. If
      the item generates $7,000 or more per month, an acceptable message may
      read, “Dried pineapple chunks are a high-income generating item.”
  4. Loop
    through all of the above steps until the user types the sentinel value
    when prompted. Display the sentinel value so that the user may
    ultimately be able to demonstrate an understanding of the way in which
    to end the program. Note: An acceptable message may read “Type n to end the program.”, where “n” is the sentinel value.

Your Visual Logic program must follow these formatting requirements:

  • Be accomplished in a single Visual Logic program.
  • Be submitted as a single file with the “.vls” file extension.
  • Be fully functional in order to receive full credit.

The specific course learning outcomes associated with this assignment are:

  • Demonstrate the use of algorithms and pseudocoding to the problem-solving process.
  • Distinguish among the basic types, steps, and properties of programming.
  • Apply the techniques of functional decomposition, modularization techniques, and debugging strategies into program design.
  • Describe the features and fundamental data structures of programming design.
  • Select and create the appropriate conditional and iteration constructs for a given programming task.
