POS 408 Week 2 Individual Assignment Home Utility Auditing Program


Instructions: Using the knowledge from the® "Visual Basic Essential Training" video series, complete the following assignment: Design, implement, test, and debug a Visual Basic® program to create a simple home utility auditing program. Conform to my published VB coding standards.


The user should be able to accomplish the following:   

  • Enter the dollar cost per kilowatt-hour.
  • Select a home appliance from this exact list of home appliances:
  • Refrigerator
  • Hair Dryer
  • Fan
  • Microwave
  • Toaster
  • Electric Wok
  • Enter the power needed in kilowatts (kW) for the selected appliance.
  • Enter the number of hours used per day for the selected appliance.

The program should do the following:   

  • Validate that the data entered has the correct format and is within a reasonable range.
  • Calculate and display the daily dollar cost for operating a home appliance when the user clicks the calculate button. Constraints: Use reasonable real-world appliance power ratings in kilowatts (kw); similar to those provided in materials. Note that a normal wall outlet can source up to 1.5 kw. Use common sense to evaluate your results; for example, your electric bill shouldn't exceed your rent.


Design a Graphical User Interface (GUI) for the program that will be intuitive for a novice user. Write the code for the program and test the results. Create a zipped folder of the project. Submit the zipped folder to the Assignment Files tab.
