Written Assignment 4: Complex Systems and Visual Decision Support
Janssen, M., Wimmer, M. A., & Deljoo, A. (Eds.). (2015). Policy practice and digital science: Integrating complex systems, social simulation and public administration in policy research (Vol. 10). Springer.
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 Smart City 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 simulate 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.
Submit a 3-page (double-spaced) paper addressing the above. Ensure that you include at least three (one from course material and two from external sources) APA-compliant references and corresponding in-text citations.
