Chapter 2—Introduction to Transaction Processing
1.Processing more transactions at a lower unit cost makes batch processing more efficient than real-timesystems.ANS:T2.The process of acquiring raw materials is part of the conversion cycle.ANS:F3.Directing work-in-process through its various stages of manufacturing is part of the conversion cycle.ANS:T4.The top portion of the monthly bill from a credit card company is an example of a turn-around docu-ment.ANS:T5.The general journal is used to record recurring transactions that are similar in nature.ANS:F6.Document flowcharts are used to represent systems at different levels of detail.ANS:F7.Data flow diagrams represent the physical system.ANS:F8.Document flowcharts are often used to depict processes that are handled in batches.ANS:T9.Program flowcharts depict the type of media being used (paper, magnetic tape, or disks) and terminals.ANS:F10.System flowcharts represent the input sources, programs, and output products of a computer system.ANS:T11.Program flowcharts are used to describe the logic represented in system flowcharts.ANS:T12.Batch processing systems can store data on direct access storage devices.
ANS:T13.Backups are automatically produced in a direct access file environment.ANS:F14.The box symbol represents a temporary file.ANS:F15.Auditors may prepare program flowcharts to verify the correctness of program logic.ANS:T16.A control account is a general ledger account which is supported by a subsidiary ledger.ANS:T17.The most significant characteristic of direct access files is access speed.ANS:T18.Real time processing is used for routine transactions in large numbers.ANS:F19.Batch processing is best used when timely information is needed because this method processes dataefficiently.ANS:F20.An inverted triangle with the letter “N” represents a file in “name” order.ANS:F21.Real-time processing in systems that handle large volumes of transactions each day can create opera-tional inefficiencies.ANS:T22.Operational inefficiencies occur because accounts unique to many concurrent transactions need to beupdated in real time.ANS:F23.Operational inefficiencies occur because accounts common to many concurrent transactions need to beupdated in real time.ANS:T24.Batch processing of noncritical accounts improves operational efficiency.ANS:T
25.Batch processing of accounts common to many concurrent transactions reduces operational efficiency.ANS:F
