Objectives
This assessment item relates to the unit learning outcomes as stated in the unit profile.
Enabling objectives
1. Analyse a case study and identify issues associated with the business;
2. Develop and deploy the application in IBM Bluemix;
3. Evaluate existing and new functionalities to address business problems;
4. Prepare a document to report your activities using text and multimedia (for example screenshots, videos).
General Information
The purpose of this assignment is to create a cloud based simulating environment which will help to identify/understand the problem stated in the given case study using analysis tools available in IBM Bluemix. In assignment three, you are working individually. By doing this assignment, you will learn to use skills and knowledge of emerging technologies like cloud computing, IoT, to simulate a business scenario to capture operational data and share with a visualization tool. You will acquire a good understanding of smart application design in a cloud environment for efficient application configuration and deployment.
What do you need to do?
The assignment requires you to do the following –
• Download the ‘Starter_Code_For_Assignment_Three.rar’ given in week 8 to configure, and deploy a cloud based smart/IoT (Internet of Things) application to simulate the business case.
• Choose a case study out of given two below and analyse the case study to understand the business problem and design a solution for those problems.
• Deploy the starter source code in your Bluemix account and modify it to address all required milestones mentioned in your chosen case study.
• Finally prepare a report according to given format and specifications below and submit it in Moodle.

Report format and specifications –
You are required to submit a written report in a single Microsoft Word (.doc or .docx)
document. There is no word limit but any unnecessary information included in the report
may result in reduced marks.
The report must contain the following content (feel free to define your own sections,
as long as you include all the required content):
o Cover page/title page and Table of contents
o URL of the app and login details of the IBM Bluemix account
o Introduction
o Case study analysis which will report –
o Business problems you have identified in the case study
o Possible solutions for each and how do these solutions address the
business problems?
o What are the solutions you implemented in the application?
o The step by step process you have followed to configure and deploy the smart app
for business case simulation. You may choose to use screenshots and notes to
enrich your report but you must have a video of the process.
o Video link of you working while deploying and configuring
o Self-Reflect –
o Was the telemetry data effective to visualize required information?
o Suggest collection of five new data elements (other than data already
collected by the telemetry) which could be helpful to solve the business
problems in the smarter way.
o Difficulties you faced –
o What are the difficulties you have faced during the process of app
deployment and data collection?
o How did you address those difficulties?
o Conclusion
o References
Plagiarism Checking Information
It is VERY important that you do not copy content directly from either the text or Internet
resources: this assignment is to be in your own words. You will lose marks if you do not
use your own words! Actual plagiarism will result in the instigation of the student
misconduct process.
On uploading your assignment for the first time you will be able to immediately see your
similarity score. However, a 24 hour delay exists for the release of similarity scores for the
submission of successive items (drafts).
To be clear, the delay will not apply to your first draft which will receive a Turnitin
similarity score as soon as possible. This mandatory delay was implemented by Turnitin to
minimise misuse of the similarity-checking service by students who were simply modifying
their submissions to avoid match detection and without citing sources appropriately.

Choose a Business Case only for the assignment
Business Case One:
Smart application to monitor trucks movement and telemetry
AB Pty. Ltd is a delivery company who has 3 trucks to deliver different products for third parties.
They have their set delivery zone which covers an area (feel free to choose an area) of Austin
downtown, Texas, USA. Due to the expanding demand their trucks are always busy. Most recently,
they are receiving complaints about delayed delivery and long queue of pending delivery. In the initial
stage of their business a truck on average can deliver 5 times a day. However, current average for
their trucks is only 3 times per day. The general manager of AB Pty. Ltd appointed a business analyst
to identify potential causes of the delay. The business analyst made a number of stage one
recommendations below –
• Develop a smart application to simulate the trucks movement.
• Divide the entire delivery area into two zones.
• Write a NODE-RED function node that will
o set different speed limits of the truck for each zone and outside the zone.
o change speed value( feel free to assume the speed values) when it enters in a delivery
zone and change it back when it is outside of the delivery zone. You can use ID of
delivery zone, entry and exit message from GeoAlert to know about their entry and
exit in a specific zone.
• Set following custom properties –
o Total delivery allocated ( this field will show a delivery number allocated to the
truck)
o Total delivered numbers at current time (will show number of delivery done). In this
case assume that every entry in the zone is the start of a delivery and every exit in a
zone is the end of a delivery.
• System should alert the management via email/Twitter, if a truck
o violated the speed limit of the zone. [ NB: Use the speed limit you have set in your
assignment two] or
o finished their allocated delivery
• Create a visual dashboard using NODE-RED which will have a speed gauge and speed chart
of a specific truck.
AB Pty. Ltd appointed you as an ICT professional to develop a simulated connected vehicle
application for simulation in Bluemix which will address the milestones above recommended by the
business analyst.
Business Case Two:
Smart application to remotely monitor a patient’s movement details
AB hospital has a physiotherapy department with 3 patients. The hospital is very renowned for their
services. It is receiving increasing pressure to increase their capacity to serve more physiotherapy
patients. However, their current capacity is limited to 3 patients only. Furthermore, as part of their
service, they also want to collect information about their patients walking habits within the walking
zone of the hospital to serve them better. They have appointed a business analyst to identify actions to
address the issues. The business analyst made a number of stage one recommendations below –
• Divide the entire walking area (feel free to choose an area) in Austin downtown, Texas, USA
into two zones.
• Write a NODE-RED function node that will
o set different walking speed of the patient for each zone and outside the zone.

o change speed value when it enters in a walking zone and change it back when it is
outside of the zone. You can use ID of walking zone, entry and exit message from
GeoAlert to know about their entry and exit in a specific zone.
• Set following custom properties –
o Total number of meters required to walk ( this field will show a delivery number
allocated to the patient)
o Total number of meters walking done at current time (number of entries in the zone
X 10 meters).
• System should alert the management via email/Twitter, if a patient
o violated the walking speed limit of the zone. [ NB: Use the speed limit you have
set in your assignment two] or
o finished their allocated walking meters
• Create a visual dashboard using NODE-RED which will have a walking speed Gauge and
speed chart of a specific patient.
The AB hospital appointed you as an ICT professional to develop a simulated connected patient’s
application for simulation in Bluemix which will address the milestones above recommended by the
business analyst.
