1)Chapter 3 discusses methods to assess the quality of simulations. You learned about three different views of simulation quality.
Suppose you lead a task force that is developing a simulation to provide strategic planning recommendations for property use zoning for a county of 750,000 residents. The zoning board and county commissioners want a simulation that allows them to assess the impact of various zoning decisions based on a variety of dynamic factors, including age, race, education, and income status. Which of the three views discussed would provide the best quality assessment for this type of simulation? How would you ensure the highest level of accuracy with you simulation, and how would you go about determining accuracy?
You must do the following:
a) Create a new thread. As indicated above, identify which of the three views discussed in the chapter that would provide the best quality assessment for the situation described above, and explain your decision. How would you ensure the highest level of accuracy with your simulation, and how would you go about determining accuracy?
b) Select AT LEAST 3 other students’ threads and post substantive comments on those threads. Your comments should extend the conversation started with the thread.
2)Suppose you needed to replace 22 physical servers that are at end of life. You were trying to convince your boss that a cloud strategy is the best approach to replace the servers. Your boss is interested in your idea; however, he or she asked you to submit a business case.
To prepare for writing the business case, use this forum to discuss the following:
1. What is cloud computing?
2. What cloud computing terminology and concepts do one need to know to write the business case, why?
Do forget to follow the discussion forum guidelines.
