  1. Design a series of pull-down menus for the GEMS system. Refer to the prototype menus. Some of the choices would be a top menu with drop-down choices, a side menu that expands and contracts, a drop-down list quick menu, with menu options displaying in the list, or a combination of the these styles.

  2. Create a help screen for any of the GEMS screens.

  3. Create a Internet home page main screen for the GEMS system.

  4. Create a Internet home page main screen for the Ecommerce system.

  5. Design a mainframe type of menu for the GEMS system.

  6. Design a pivot table for the Ecommerce system. Think about the information about the different products that MRE will sell and the trend of these products over time.

  7. Use a usability survey similar to the one on page 538 of the 7th edition of Systems Analysis and Design to critique one of the MRE prototypes. If you are in a group, have the other members of the group critique the prototype. What suggestions would you make based on the result of the survey?

  8. Suggest how the Add Country prototype (see Evans' office) should be changed (in a different copy of the Web page) to accommodate visually impaired workers. This would be a parallel set of Web pages.

  9. Suggest how the Add Printing Request prototype (see Donaldson's office) should be changed (in a different copy of the Web page) to accommodate visually impaired workers. This would be a parallel set of Web pages.
