1 RYAN ELLIOTT Explain the factors affecting the quality of information.

2 Accuracy Before a book is published, it is important to know if sales will be of a sufficient level to cover the production costs. Imagine the consequences for the publisher if a decision made to produce a book hinged on a wildly inaccurate sales estimate.

3 Up-to-date It is vital that goods are re-ordered as soon as they are needed to ensure stock is always on the shelves. Imagine the consequences if stock levels were only checked once per week – and hence goods ordered only once per week.

4 Completeness Imagine the consequences if our class had text books that only covered half of our course.

5 Relevance Say a store manager asked for a report on the sales of canned goods, and was given a list of every can sold detailing the product, the customer and the time and date sold. The information is complete and accurate but is not relevant in this context.

6 Effective Presentation Imagine the impact if the authors of a text book did not divide the text into paragraphs or illustrate their points with diagrams. Suppose the authors of an ICT book assumed everyone reading it already had a high level of ICT knowledge – would all readers be able to understand it?
