# Excel chapter 6 grader project – delta paint |

1

Download   and open the file named   Exp19_Excel_Ch06_Cap_DeltaPaint.xlsx. Grader has automatically added your   last name to the beginning of the filename.

2

Create   appropriate range names for Total Production Cost (cell B18) and Gross Profit   (cell B21) by selection, using the values in the left column.

3

Edit   the existing name range Employee_Hourly_Wage to Hourly_Wages2021.
Note, Mac users, in the Define Name dialog box, add the new named range, and   delete the original one.

4

Use   the newly created range names to create a formula to calculate Net Profit (in   cell B22). Net Profit = Gross Profit – Total Production Cost.

5

Create   a new worksheet labeled Range Names, paste the newly created range   name information in cell A1, and resize the columns as needed for proper   display.

6

On   the Forecast sheet, start in cell E3. Complete the series of substitution   values ranging from 10 to 200 at increments of 10 gallons   vertically down column E.

7

Enter   references to the Total_Production_Cost, Gross_Profit, and Net Profit   cells in the correct locations (F2, G2, and H2 respectively) for a   one-variable data table. Use range names where indicated.

8

Complete   the one-variable data table in the range E2:H22 using cell B4 as the column   input cell, and then format the results with Accounting Number Format with   two decimal places.

9

Apply   custom number formats to make the formula references appear as descriptive   column headings. In F2, Total Costs; in G2, Gross Profit, in H2, Net Profit.   Bold and center the headings and substitution values.

10

Copy the number of gallons produced substitution values from the one-variable data   table, and then paste the values starting in cell E26.

11

Type   \$15   in cell F25. Complete the series of substitution values from \$15 to \$40 at \$5   increments.

12

Enter   the reference to the net profit formula in the correct location for a   two-variable data table.

13

Complete   the two-variable data table in the range E25:K45. Use cell B6 as the Row   input cell and B4 as the Column input cell. Format the results with Accounting   Number Format with two decimal places.

14

Apply   a custom number format to make the formula reference appear as a descriptive   column heading Wages. Bold and center the headings and substitution   values where necessary.

15

Create   a scenario named Best Case, using Units Sold, Unit Selling   Price, and Employee Hourly Wage (use cell references). Enter these values for   the scenario: 200,   30,   and 15.

16

Create   a second scenario named Worst Case, using the same changing cells.   Enter these values for the scenario: 100, 25, and 20.

17

Create   a third scenario named Most Likely, using the same changing cells.   Enter these values for the scenario: 150, 25, and 15.

18

Generate   a scenario summary report using the cell references for Total Production Cost   and Net Profit.

19

Load   the Solver add-in if it is not already loaded. Set the objective to calculate   the highest Net Profit possible.

20

Use   the units sold as changing variable cells.

21

Use   the Limitations section of the spreadsheet model to set a constraint for raw   materials (The raw materials consumed must be less than or equal to the raw   materials available). Use cell references to set constraints.

22

Set   a constraint for labor hours. Use cell references to set constraints.

23

Set   a constraint for maximum production capability. Units sold (B4) must be less   than or equal to maximum capability per week (B7). Use cell references to set   constraints.

24

Solve   the problem. Generate the Answer Report and Keep Solver Solution.

25

Create   a footer on all four worksheets with your name on the left side, the sheet   name code in the center, and the file name code on the right side.

26

Save   and close Exp19_Excel_Ch06_Cap_DeltaPaint.xlsx.   Exit Excel. Submit the file as directed.
