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.

Please find below attached document chapter 13


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
