margins, and make sure all graphics fit on the page and do not break across pages.
In this section, clearly identify the analytical conclusion you have reached after your analysis of the data.
Make sure you interpret your findings, parameters, and what you learned from the analysis.
Course of Action Development
In this section, discuss at least three courses of action that could be used to improve a problem or take
advantage of the opportunity identified by your analysis. Try to think of different ways to address the
issue given the resources. Try to think “out of the box”. Consider expensive and inexpensive solutions,
fast or permanent solutions, high quality versus low quality solutions for example.
In this section, discuss your recommendation on how to improve a problem or take advantage of the
opportunity identified by your analysis. Defend your recommendation using the results of your analysis,
