1. Give three examples of each of the three main types of business processes.2. Tom owns a small recreational trailer business in a suburban community located close to themountains. The community is relatively small but growing at a fast rate. Tom’s business is growing,not because of his effective sales style and personality, but due to the growth of the community.Tom’s competition thus far has been nearly nonexistent, but as the area grows he expects toencounter increasing competition. Tom sells mostly trailers for vacationing and camping. When customers arrive on Tom’s lot, theyare greeted by a salesperson. The salesperson may show the customers the trailers on the lot, butthe salesperson need not be present during the entire showing. Depending on customerpreference, the salesperson will either take the customer on a tour or the customer may roam thelot freely, inspecting trailers at their leisure. Since recreational trailers are fairly large-ticket items, customers often leave the lot withoutmaking a purchase, only to return another day after making the decision to purchase a trailer. Whena customer decides to make a purchase, the salesperson initiates a series of procedures to properlydocument the order and sale transaction. First, the salesperson determines the model of theselected trailer and offers the customer a list of options that correspond to the particular model.The customer may (1) purchase a trailer off the lot with no added features, (2) purchase a trailer offthe lot with additional features, or (3) special order a trailer that is not currently on the lot. In most cases, customers do not pay cash for their trailers. If, however, the customer pays cash,a simple sales contract is prepared and the customer drives off with a trailer. The majority of thecustomers use an installment method of purchase. Before an installment purchase is authorized,the customer’s credit must be verified to determine credit worthiness. With an installment purchase, an installment agreement is prepared in addition to the salescontract. Tom has arranged financing through a local bank for all installment sales. When aninstallment sale is made, the bank sends Tom a lump-sum payment equal to the price of the trailer.Instead of making payment to Tom, customers pay the bank plus interest. In either case, Tomreceives a lump-sum payment for each trailer sold, whether that lump-sum comes from thecustomer or from the bank. Once the credit is approved, the customer can take delivery of the trailer. This involves a deliveryperson inspecting and cleaning the trailer. The customer may pick up the trailer or have the deliveryperson tow it to the customer’s house.Required:Tom’s Trailer Sales has identified the following events of interest: Customer Looks at Trailers;Customer Orders Trailer; Deliver Trailer; and Receive Payment.a.
