Introduction The available of technology, such as, computers, tablets, ebooks, and even Internet are absent in many households in America still. As of 2013, the Census Bureau suggested that “84% of U.S. households own a computer, and 73% of U.S. households have a computer with a broadband connection to the internet (Pew Research Center).” It also mentioned “63.6% having a handheld computer. (Census Bureau)” A survey by Pew Research Center confirmed those stats, as 70% reported they have broadband access. These numbers show that there is still a large number of Americans who don’t own a computer, nor have access to the Internet. “Nearly 25 million households (21%) have no regular internet access at all, either at home or elsewhere (Pew Research Center).” This is the purpose for the Community Tech Center. The ultimate goal is to stimulate the use of technology in a community by providing devices and Internet access, but not only providing the tools but also building technical skills.

Decision Tree Analysis:

Facility Selection Decision Tree Analysis
When it comes to the success of a project that provides a service to consumers, regardless of whom the consumer may be, it must be ensured that the service can be supplied to the consumers who need desire it most. Not only does the demand play a big role in the project success but also the quantity of consumers that demand the service. For the Community Tech Center, a major decision that’s to be made is the location that will contain the most consumers with the highest demand for the technical services that will be provided. Even though our service is free, the more utilization and the more popular the center becomes, the more grants, donations, and even volunteers the center will accumulate. We’ll be looking at several factors which were considered when completing the decision tree for the facility location including, whether the location is inside or outside the city, the economic class being pursued, and also the population density of the area where the facility is located. To better understand the decisions that would need to be made, starting from the end of the decision tree would be best. The last decision to be made in the decision tree is that of whether to find a location in a location with high population density vs. a location with low population density. The initial thought may lead to think, high density areas have more people so why is this decision so hard. Further analysis shows that there could be more functioning centers in high density areas vs. the lower density areas. Lack of attention to detail here would allow us to locate the center in an area where the center would essentially need to compete with other centers. The goal is to spread the use and knowledge of technology, so placing the center where there is already a concentration of other tech related centers wouldn’t be the best idea. Also, where there is more population, there is also more crime. This is another factor to be taken into consideration, especially since the center will be housing thousands of dollars of equipment. This is the significance the population density plays in facility location. The next level up the decision tree is the economic class that will be targeted. A few factors are significant when making this decision including technology ownership, technology use, and technical knowledge. Technology ownership relates to the percentage of the economic class that owns technology. This can be from computers or tablets and even internet connection. The lower the ownership, the more likely they are to need the facility. Technology use relates to how frequent that economic class uses things such as computers, tablets, and internet. If the use of technology is high then the possibility of the center’s utilization being high increases. By analyzing both technology ownership and technology use, a larger picture of which economic class would possibly utilize the center more. If use is high but ownership is low, then utilization of the center is increases. This simple analysis shows us a lot. Technical knowledge is another important factor, as the more people who lack computer knowledge, the more that can use the services that the center will provide. Economic class is possibly the most important decision area on the decision tree. The decision tree starts off with the choice of whether the facility will be located within or outside the city, in more rural areas. Many factors related to these two choices effect the decisions to be made later, the first of those being transportation. Transportation can be heavily tied with economic class. Low to medium classes are less likely to have cars than the medium to high class so public transportation can be critical, especially in rural areas where bus and train services aren’t as available. This could also tie in with the location selected having a large enough parking area and also being located near a bus stop. The population density is also affected by the choice of inner-city vs. rural areas, as the further out of the city we go the lower the population density becomes. This decision will greatly affect the outcome of the Community Tech Center; we can now take a look at some metrics to determine our decision. In order to determine which decisions would lead to the best outcome, the decision tree must have some a minimum level of success that’s needed to be achieved. Successful metrics for option A, low population density within the inner city with low to middle class citizens, is 60% utilization of the facility. Option B, high density within the inner city with low to middle class citizens, is considered successful if a minimum of 90% utilization is obtained. The chance that Option A happens over Option B is 20%, giving Option B an 80% chance. Successful metrics for option C, low population density within the inner city with middle to high class citizens, is 60% utilization of the facility. Option D, high population density within the inner city with middle to high class citizens, is considered successful if a minimum of 90% utilization is obtained. The chance that Option C happens over Option D is 60%, giving Option D a 40% chance. Successful metrics for option E, low population density within a rural with low to middle class citizens, is 50% utilization of the facility. Option F, high population density within a rural area with low to middle class citizens, is considered successful if a minimum of 75% utilization is obtained. The chance that Option E happens over Option F is 30%, giving Option F a 70% chance. Successful metrics for option G, low population density within a rural with low to middle class citizens, is 50% utilization of the facility. Option H, high population density within a rural area with low to middle class citizens, is considered successful if a minimum of 75% utilization is obtained. The chance that Option G happens over Option H is 25%, giving Option H a 75% chance. To decide between an inner city location and a rural area location, the EMV was calculated for both options. The EMV revealed that an inner city location would yield a better chance of success with a utilization of 39% beating out the rural area whose utilization of 34%. The decision tree also reveals that Option B has the most likely chances of success, with a utilization of 72%. Event / Fault Tree: Discussion of Fault/Event Tree: The main purpose of our fault tree analysis is to help identify potential causes of system failures before the failures actually occur. It can also be used to evaluate the probability of the top event using analytical or statistical methods. These calculations involve system quantitative reliability and maintainability information, such as failure probability, failure rate and repair rate. After completing an FTA, we can focus our efforts on improving system safety and reliability. When we perform an FTA, we systematically determine what happens to the system when the status of a part or another factor changes.
An event tree is a graphical representation of the logic model that identifies and quantifies the possible outcomes following an initiating event. Beginning with an initiating event; the event tree details a sequence of pivotal events that lead to specific end states.
In our Tech center, we want to order our software and hardware online. If our shipment is complete without any delay, there are two possibilities. Installation will be on time and it will help us to manage our time and the opening will be on time. And if the shipment is complete that it will help to control our budget, and we can use our contingency budget to upgrade the facility by providing more devices to accommodate more students. We, also, can do the early opening if this occurs. This tree evaluate the pathways leading to failure of a system and the associated risk(s).
It helps us to determine the boundaries of the particular analysis by defining the initiating event and the possible outcomes for each sequence of events. The event tree analysis defines possible scenarios, including success, and partial and/or complete system/subsystem failure. Fault trees are often used to quantify system events that are part of the event tree sequence.
Fault trees graphically represent the interaction of failures and other events within a system. Basic events at the bottom of the fault trees are linked via logic symbols (known as gates) to one or more top events. These top events represent identified scenarios or system failure modes for which predicted reliability or availability data is required. In our tech center, if we received incomplete and missing product than we have to contact the vendors or the company which will increase our overhead expense and it will lead us to delay opening.
In our Community Tech Center, if we receive broken or damaged devices than we have to reorder or we need a refund. However, in both situations we will face delay opening with overhead expense and exceeded budget. This analysis method is used to quantitatively determine the probability of a system failure and/or safety hazard.
Conclusion:

There is much to do when implementing a project such as this, the most important part is being prepared by knowing what needs to be completed and what could happen to prevent those things from being completed. Having a plan for completing the project, along with back up plans increases the chance of project success greatly. There are many factors that drive project planning for the community technical center, from communication efforts, to budgets, facilities, equipment, insurance, and even rules and policies. With the completion of risk identification and risk assessment, the community is steps closer to utilizing a tech center. The decision tree will increase the Community Tech Center’s chances of getting the most use and therefore accomplishing the purpose of the project, to spread IT knowledge. This analysis has broken down the decision tree into parts explaining how each affects the outcome of a target goal. Determining the best location, social class, and even area density all point to a promising project outcome. However, Fault Tree Analysis is a risk management tool which takes undesirable events or faults and represents them in a tree like structure by a process of simple logic and graphical design. This helps us pinpoint the root causes or the lower level events which have resulted in this fault and thus enables us to take suitable actions to avoid or protect against it.. It also, focuses on the probabilities of the projects and cut set failure or the occurrence of the top event based on the probabilities of failure of the basic events. For our Community Tech Center, our event /fault tree will help us to map and plan the risk and their analysis in advance, which will be helpful for the execution of a successful project

Proj 595 Risk Paper #2

...Risk Paper #1 – Vehicle Purchase Risk Assessment PROJ 595 – Project Risk Management Introduction Major life decisions should never be taken lightly. The only major life decision that I have ever made was buying my first car. When it comes to buying a car there are always a slew of risks that come with it. There were many things to consider here before even going out to visit the dealerships. First would I buy the car new, if so which car maker would I go with, each car maker has their own risks that come with buying their car.
