the same time. Each order is placed with one specific vendor. The vendors never consolidate multiple orders into one shipment, and always ship merchandise promptly. Usually, the vendors can fill the entire

order in one shipment. Occasionally, however, a vendor may be temporarily out of stock of a particular

item. In such cases, the vendor waits until all the items become available and ships the entire order. The

vendors do not allow the store to make partial payments of invoices or settle several invoices with one

payment. The store has several bank accounts, and each payment can be made from only one of those

accounts. Each order, the receipt of goods or payment is handled by no more than one employee.
