You are a teller at a bank. A customer has come in asking to open a savings account, one of the many kinds of accounts that you handle. After determining that the customer wants a passbook savings rather than a certificate of deposit, you remind the customer that all accounts are FDIC insured. You assign a unique account number and accept the customer’s initial deposit. You explain that while all accounts earn some form of interest, this specific savings account is compounded quarterly. The interest will appear automatically on the monthly statement. The customer now can deposit and withdraw from the account.
Outline the steps you would take to create a simple form that would help a teller create a new account for a customer. Focus on the design steps in general rather than the details.
