Reflection Paper

For accountants, processing documentation refers to documenting those significant accounting processes to make sure the financial reporting are consistent with the company’s business activities, and GAAP. Documentation of significant accounting processes also help companies achieve business operations effectiveness. To prove the necessity of accounting process documentation. I will prove it from several aspects. First, business transaction cycles are always managed through Accounting Information System. Transaction cycles are initiated by accountants to determine what type of the transactions should be recorded, and then the record is disseminated to execution departments. Secondly, accounting processing requires approvals of each transaction, which ensures validate process and internal control. For example, when a purchase option is made, the approval from a supervisor or manager is required. Documenting of the approval ensures the activities are consist with company operations, facilitates the managers to trace errors or fraud to the responsibility of any employee. Last but not least, accounting process documentation offers the description of how the routine transactions are accounted for. It is to make sure the procedure is applied correctly and consistently. So that the financial reports generated from the data have effective reliability and reflections. This with help the management and shareholders to make prudent decisions.

The features of perceptive includes: HTML Flexibility makes creators distribution capabilities through intranet or linking. Workflow support offers official review of the process manuals.

The objectives include identification of stakeholders, differentiation between types of audiences, and analysis of audience perception and needs. The discussion centers on comprehension of the learning objectives, challenges or struggles understanding the concepts, and applicability of topics to current career fields (University of Phoenix eCampus, 2013). Comfortable Topics Objectives of week identify stakeholders as two groups, external and internal. A Stakeholder Analysis helps the project team in many ways. The team identifies key individuals and work groups that are affected both positively or negatively, by the project. They also identify key individuals or entities that can have a major influence on the process improvement project. By discussing the project and its potential advantages, the team is able to understand the current position of these individuals with regard to the project (Stuart, Sarow, & Stuart, 2007). In this way, the team creates a strategy to persuade the stakeholders to act in ways that do not undermine the project, but that favor organizational change and successful project completion. External and Internal stakeholders sometimes share a......

Documentation Techniques

...------------------------------------------------- Documentation Techniques Five documentation techniques include data flow diagrams, entity relationship diagrams, system flowcharts, program flowcharts, and record layout diagrams. Data Flow Diagrams and Entity Relationship Diagrams * Data flow diagrams – Data flow diagrams (DFD) use symbols to represent the entities, processes, data flows, and data stores that pertain to a system. * Entities – Entities in a DFD are objects that lie at the boundary of the system being modeled. They are the sources of and destinations for data and can be other interfacing systems or entities external to the organization. Entities are labeled as singular nouns on a DFD. Data stores represent the accounting files and records used in each process, and the labeled arrows represent data flows between processes, data stores, and entities. * Processes – Processes are labeled with a descriptive verb. Process objects should not be represented as nouns. The arrows connecting objects should be labeled to represent specific flows of data. Also, each data flow label should be unique. The same label should not be attached to two different flow lines in the same DFD. * Usage – Systems analysts use DFDs extensively to represent the logical elements of the system. It does not depict the physical system. * Entity relationship diagrams – An entity relationship diagram is used to represent the relationship between business...

Dispensary Documentation indicate use. The totals on these receipts are then tallied at the end of the trading day and collections compared against pump readings. The cashier of the day is responsible for any differences that may come up. 1.2 LIMITATIONS OF THE CURRENT SYSTEM * Open avenues for fraud, either in house or perpetrated by customers. * The receipts may get lost or get disfigured and may become illegible as a result * The cashiers undergo expenses to cover differences which occur due to miscalculations * The system is slow since the cashier must process the arithmetic of the customer’s order slowly to avoid end of day differences. * It is difficult to pinpoint fraud JUSTIFICATION * The proposed system will assist the cashiers in computing correct arithmetic. * The proposed system will eliminate chances of loss of receipting information * The proposed system will reduce the queues since computers process information at millions if times more than human do. * The proposed system will maintain complete sale information * The proposed system will minimize chances of fraud.

Eda Process Reflection

...Process Reflection for Standard 5 Assignment As part of EDA-534, Educational Administration Foundation and Framework, we were assigned the task of analyzing standard five of the ISLLC 2008 standards. My group was able to develop a template by using prior knowledge and skills specific to the task, through enduring understanding, completion of essential questions, and CLC participation related to the standard. Group assignments give students experience for real life situations and experiences for later employment. While completing group assignments, there is always going to be challenges such as including everyone and their ideas, poor group leadership, and ignoring or ridiculing others and their contributions. Our template was a collaborative effort, we were able to participate in discussions, search for data, and trade that data with the other group members because of our strong leadership. One group member created a template that allowed the other group members to insert their own original ideas into the sections. My group creates two different templates and I revise, combine, and add additional enduring understandings and essential questions to finalize the project. Standard five was no different, as a group we have clear goals set for each other. We break down each task into smaller units so that not one person is doing majority of the work and we also set up a timeline that is put in the discussion forum with check points for stages of work that was completed.......

534- Gcu Process Reflection Week 6

...Process Reflection: Week 6 Grand Canyon University: EDA-534 October 2, 2013 I think we did a great job as a group with regards to the standards for this week. I honestly was a little concerned with Crystal’s submission of her three knowledge responses but thankfully Sarah took the initiative to fix it after I had asked if we had enough. Nonetheless, I feel like we all chipped in and did the job successfully. I can’t believe how close we are to completing this class. It has been a great experience so far! Honesty is an important part of being a leader. A true leader is honest with the values they believe in to ensure that each and every person is treated fair and equally. Decisions and systems with a school should hold common values such as integrity, fairness and equality. I know that after speaking to my principal, she had mentioned that education is filled with moments that ethical decisions have to be made. Making the right decisions is a huge part of what being a principal is all about. Students and faculty should not be discriminated based on their perceived differences. As a leader within my class, I try to exhibit these traits in order to create a positive report with all my students no matter who they are. I try to tell my students to consider all points of view in each and every scenario so that the best decision can be made. I truly believe that we, as teachers, must teach our children to learn to appreciate each other no matter what......

Inter-Professional Learning Reflection on Group Process

...AHP -3-503 -Inter-professional Learning Reflection on group process Reflection summary Following completion of the above unit, I reflected on the group process (comprising 10 members of students from various allied health professions), considering my role in the group, how I related to others and the group in relation to the relevant theory. I have written this reflection using John’s Model For Structured Reflection (2000). Looking in During this unit, each group was given a task to design a campaign to raise awareness about the allied health professions, to be pitched at those who were in primary and secondary education and also to graduates. This was then to be presented to some of the other groups at the end of the unit. We began by discussing and sharing our ideas within our group. Reflecting back over this unit, I was quite aware of how the group of ten did appear quite large to begin with, and I felt it was difficult at times for everyone to have their say, including myself. I did feel that I held back on saying some of my ideas, partly because initially I did not feel comfortable sharing them in a group of people I didn’t know very well and felt that I was lacking a bit of confidence to speak up. There were some members who spoke more than others, which I was expecting, but I did feel that everyone was trying to make a contribution and felt happy that everyone was been given an opportunity to speak and share ideas. As we got to know each other better,......

Export Documentations

...Export Documentation Exporters should seriously consider having the freight forwarder handle the formidable amount of documentation that exporting requires as forwarders are specialists in this process. The following documents are commonly used in exporting; but which of them are necessary in a particular transaction depends on the requirements of the U.S. government and the government of the importing country. • Air freight shipments are handled by air waybills, which can never be made in negotiable form • A bill of lading is a contract between the owner of the goods and the carrier (as with domestic shipments). For vessels, there are two types: a straight bill of lading which is nonnegotiable and a negotiable or shipper's order bill of lading. The latter can be bought, sold, or traded while the goods are in transit. The customer usually needs an original as proof of ownership to take possession of the goods • A commercial invoice is a bill for the goods from the seller to the buyer. These invoices are often used by governments to determine the true value of goods when assessing customs duties. Governments that use the commercial invoice to control imports will often specify its form, content, number of copies, language to be used, and other characteristics. • A consular invoice is a document that is required in some countries. It describes the shipment of goods and shows information such as the consignor, consignee, and value of the shipment. Certified......

Process Reflection Week 1

...Process Reflection: Standard 1 Ronald Hill Grand Canyon University: EDA 534 July 30, 2014 Process Reflection: Standard 1 Working with team Green and unwrapping the ISLLC Standard 1 was an enormous learning experience for all team members involved. Everyone on the team is positive and motivated to be successful. There were a few issues to overcome, however I see this as process of practice in becoming an educational administrator. The first issue to overcome was just figuring out who was in our group, and somehow communicating with each other. Out of the four people in our group, no one had taken an online course that required Collaborative Learning Groups. Once the team members were identified, it was a just a matter of communicating to get the assignment rolling. The group used emails, text messaging, and the discussion forum to communicate with each other. How to divide the assignment up among group members was another issue the group had to overcome. Once we decided the part that each group member would complete, each member completed his or her part and submitted as his or her part of the final assignment. When a portion of the assignment was published, each group member would give their thoughts, ideas, and opinions on any changes that might need to be made. In order for this to work, all members agreed that critiques or criticism must be made in a positive manner. In conclusion, this was an awesome learning experience for a first assignment.

Electronic Documentation

...Electronic Documentation Nursing is a fast changing profession that has been vital to providing care in the medical setting. Throughout the past several years one of the most recognizable changes in the medical field is the transformation from paper charting to electronic forms of documentation. This has led to a decrease in the amount of paper charting by allowing nurses to use check boxes, cell formatting, and computer databases to keep patients records more accessible and organized. As new forms of technology become available we find that there are often flaws that need to be assessed and corrected to properly implement an optimal computing system. The clinical integration paper examines the positive and negative aspects of electronic documentation in the nursing field as it pertains to time management, patient safety and its efficacy. It was found that nurses spend the largest proportion of their time at the nurses station documenting and coordinating patient’s care with twenty five to fifty percent, which results in less time spent on patient care (Blair & Smith, 2012). This is alarming knowing that approximately a quarter to half of a nurse’s shift is done sitting in front of a computer documenting the day’s events. At Central Baptist Hospital I believe that more than half a day could be taken up by computer charting. From what I have experienced, a nurse may begin their shift with anywhere between four to six patients. These patients require a general...

...the Province of Batangas. MMTEE Agricultural Supply has formed contracts with multi-national companies to supply his business with products such as Purina and the likes of Thunderbird. The business has a monthly revenue not smaller than 10 million pesos and has uncollected debts worth of 1 million pesos. Having four other stores around Batangas province it is very hard to supervise the transaction of each store. But despite of all the huge numbers the business is earning, there’s also instances of shortcomings such as unmonitored report of sales and bad debts, unorganized billing of bulk orders and unsecured storage of data. Data is gold when it comes to business, every future of businesses rely on the data especially in decision making process. Some businesses operate in the same way that they always have and some businesses now collect and examine the data that are available. Huge industries are now integrating data-driven algorithmic recommendations into their decision-making processes and this is called business analytics. Analytics is defined as the extensive use of data, statistical and quantitative analysis, explanatory and predictive modeling, and fact-based management to drive decision making.
