Answer:

Answer:

The three types of decision making systems are operational, managerial, and strategic. Operational decision making focuses on maintaining the performance of core, day-to-day business activities. Managerial decision making attempts to improve a company's reaction and adaptability to change. This type of decision making has as its goal to continuously improve the company's practices. Strategic decision making deals with unstructured decisions that will affect the future of the company in the long-term.
A customer of the company involved in operational decision making might use the company's website to track down the best rated vendors for supplies. On the managerial level, a customer of the company could use the website to forecast changes in demand in the coming months. At the strategic level, the company's website could be used to identify emerging technologies that could become future competitors. Once these threats have been identified, the executive at the strategic level can begin planning appropriate counter-measures to the emerging threats.

Essay
Answer:

Answer:

Transactional information is the information contained within a single business process that facilitates the completion of core business operation. Analytical information is used for decision making at the managerial level and encompasses information that affects an entire organization. The company uses both types of information to create a customer's digital dashboard. For example, its Social ROI feature could be used by a manager to determine the effectiveness of a new campaign initiative. Meanwhile, an analyst at the operational level can use the company's click performance feature to observe the public's reaction to information.

Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Grand Challenge The goal of the DARPA Grand Challenge is to save lives by making one-third of ground military forces autonomous or driverless vehicles by 2015. Created in response to a congressional and U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) mandate, the DARPA Grand Challenge brings together individuals and organizations from industry, the research and development (R D) community, government, the armed services, and academia and includes students, backyard inventors, and automotive enthusiasts. The DARPA Grand Challenge 2004 The DARPA Grand Challenge 2004 field test of autonomous ground vehicles ran from Barstow, California, to Primm, Nevada, and offered a $1 million prize. From the qualifying round at the California Speedway, 15 finalists emerged to attempt the Grand Challenge. However, the prize went unclaimed when no vehicles were able to complete the difficult desert route. The DARPA Grand Challenge 2005 The DARPA Grand Challenge 2005 was held in the Mojave Desert and offered a $2 million prize to the team that completed the 132-mile course in the shortest time under 10 hours. The race, over desert terrain, included narrow tunnels, sharp turns, and a winding mountain pass with a sheer drop-off on one side and a rock face on the other. Five teams completed the course, and " Stanley," the Stanford Racing Team's car, won the $2 million prize with a time of 6 hours, 53 minutes. The DARPA Grand Challenge 2007 The third DARPA Grand Challenge was an urban challenge on the site of the now-closed George Air Force Base in Victorville, California. It offered a $2 million prize to the autonomous vehicle that could cover the 60-mile course in less than 6 hours. The vehicles had to obey stop lights, navigate around other vehicles, and even merge into heavy traffic. Tartan Racing, a collaborative effort by Carnegie Mellon University and General Motors Corporation, won the prize with "Boss," a Chevy Tahoe. The Stanford Racing Team's "Junior," a 2006 Volkswagen Passat, won second prize of $1 million. "Victor Tango," a 2005 Ford Escape hybrid from Virginia Tech, won third place along with a $500,000 prize. Research the Internet and determine if DARPA achieved its goal of creating one-third of ground military forces autonomous or driverless vehicles by 2015.
