A soft-drink manufacturer produces several flavors of drink—for example, cola, orange, and lemon. Additionally, each flavor has several versions such as regular, diet, and caffeine-free. The manufacturer operates factories in several states.

Assume you have input records that list version, flavor, yearly production in gallons, and state (for example: Regular Cola 5000 Kansas). The records have been sorted in alphabetical order by version within flavor within state. Design the report that lists each version and flavor, with minor total production figures for each flavor and major total production figures for each state.

I am in need of a flowchart that will work for this scenario. Can anyone give me an example?

Translation: Will somebody do my homework for me?

Answer: No, but if you show us what you've done, we might be able to help you improve your design.

I am not asking for someone to do my homework. I just need an example to follow because I am not sure where to start. If i can get a little help I can finish it.

>I just need an example to follow because I am not sure where to start.
You've baffled me. I can't imagine how you could not know where to start. Have you never seen a flowchart before? That's about the only way you could reach the stage of complete incompetence without actually being incompetent.

Why not start by printing a report of all the records? That's a straightforward loop, and strikes me as a fantastic bare minimum for your flowchart. Here's some pseudocode:

while more records do
  load next record
  print record
loop

From there you can build up to the requirements. This is called incremental design, and it's most effective when you're prototyping (ie. you don't really know how the end result will look and just want to throw ideas around). The intermediate stages don't have to solve the problem, they can solve a part of the problem, or even a part of a part of the problem.

Am I doing any better with this and can you critique it for me please?
This is all new to me...My instructor is not teaching us properly and plenty of other students are having the same problems trying to understand what is the assignment is.

How is this chart and does it work properly?
