Description

Task 1

Discussion:

Chapter 13 discussed managing complex systems and chapter 15 introduced the advantages of visual decision support. Discuss how you would combine the two concepts to create visualizations for an ABM-Based Gaming simulation for policy-making. First, describe what specific policy you’re trying to create. Let’s stick with the SmartCity scenario. Describe a specific policy (that you haven’t used before), and how you plan to use ABM-Based Gaming to build a model for simulating the effects of the policy. Then, describe what type of visualization technique you’ll use to make the model more accessible. Use figure 15.9 and describe what data a new column for your policy would contain.

To complete this assignment, you must do the following:

A) Create a new thread. As indicated above, discuss how you would combine the two concepts to create visualizations for an ABM-Based Gaming simulation for policy-making. First, describe what specific policy you’re trying to create. Let’s stick with the SmartCity scenario. Describe a specific policy (that you haven’t used before), and how you plan to use ABM-Based Gaming to build a model for simulating the effects of the policy. Then, describe what type of visualization technique you’ll use to make the model more accessible. Use figure 15.9 and describe what data a new column for your policy would contain.

B) Select AT LEAST 3 other students’ threads and post substantive comments on those threads, evaluating the pros and cons of that student’s recommendations. Your comments should extend the conversation started with the thread.

Task 2

Assignment

Your readings in this unit, along with the two sources that you locate on decision making using visualizations in complex systems ( you may use our library or external sources to locate scholarly articles), provide a broad range of focus on how data visualization may contribute to support the analysis of policy options in an organization. Consider the themes that arose from your readings and research and how they might be applied to an organization.

Address the following:
• What modeling techniques will be optimal in the organization?
• Reflect on the characteristics of the data?
• Assess the application of visualization techniques within your chosen organization.

Your submission should be demonstrate proper APA formatting and style. You do not need to include a cover page or abstract, but be sure to include your name, assignment title, and page number in the running header of each page.

Task 1: Discussion your answer should be 2 pages

Task 2 : Assignment your answer should be 5 pages

Task 3

Research

The final research paper assignment is to write a research paper that explains how Information Technology (IT) promotes getting people who are affected by policies involved in the policy-making process. Cite specific examples.

To complete this assignment, you will upload a Microsoft Word document (.doc or .docx) that contains your complete paper. Your paper, including your list of sources, must be in APA format, and you MUST cite your reference in the body of the paper using APA in-text citation format. A source is any paper or article that you will reference in your paper. If you need more information on APA format (for references list AND in-text citations), visit this reference: https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/560/01…

This is an individual assignment. Here are a few details about the overall research paper. Please take a look at the attached rubric for details on how the paper will be graded.

You must reference two (2) peer-reviewed articles or papers that support your thesis statement. One of these papers may be from your annotated bibliography assignment. The final paper must be at least 1000 words in length. (DO NOT exceed 1200 words by a material amount. Excessive words or too many references will NOT impress me.)

So in summary, here are the research paper requirements:

2 peer-reviewed resources (articles or papers) (1 may be from your annotated bibliography assignment)

Paper MUST address: How Information Technology (IT) promotes getting people who are affected by policies involved in the policy-making process. Cite specific examples.

Cited sources must directly support your paper (i.e. not incidental references)

At least 1000 words in length (but NOT longer than 1200 words)

Your answer must be 1200 words
