IFSM 310 3D Printing Stage 3 Assignment

IFSM 310 3D Printing Stage 3 Assignment

Before you begin this assignment, be sure you:

  • Have completed all previously assigned readings.
  • Read the “3D Printing Case Study.”
  • Reviewed the feedback on your 3D Printing Stage 1 and Stage 2 Assignments.

It is several months later and Mark has implemented your recommendations for his IT infrastructure.  Business is booming!  Mark’s father has seen what a great success Mark’s 3D printing business is, and he wants to provide the capital to open two more facilities near Veterans Administration Hospitals in Memphis, Tennessee and Phoenix, Arizona.  Mark is very excited about expanding his business and being located near service men and women who will benefit from his 3D printed accessibility and assistive devices.  Since he has already purchased several server and storage devices to hold his designs and business information, he would like to retain that investment.  One thing he has learned is that, with very high speed internet connections, the 3D design files can be downloaded in just a few seconds, so they would not have to be stored at each of his new locations.  Mark’s plan is to create two new facilities, each with the same number of 3D printers and staff as he has at his current location.  The employees at the new locations will also need access to the ERP system to report their time and order supplies, etc.

Mark has asked you to explain how his IT infrastructure should be changed to accommodate these two new facilities and allow him to manage the overall enterprise as one business.  Use the following outline for your paper:

  1. List the components. In part 1 of your Stage 2 assignment, you listed the computer system, information system, and network components needed at Mark’s facility.  Here you will list which of those components (hardware, software, security devices, communication network and its devices, wired/wireless devices, internet, and data and information, as appropriate) will be located at each of the two new (remote) locations. (Create one list; it will be the same for both.)  Some components may not be needed at the new locations; you should not list those.  The new locations may require some components not in use at the original site; these should be included in the list.
  2. Explain the changes that will be needed in Mark’s current (existing) IT infrastructure to incorporate the two new locations, and handle the increase in the number of designs and orders and the additional employees.
  3. Explain what is different in the IT infrastructure at the two new locations versus the IT infrastructure now in place at Mark’s current facility, and explain why the differences exist.
  4. Create an original graphical representation of the three facilities and show the devices that would be located at each location. Show how the locations would be connected and the devices required.

Formatting:    

 

  • Parts 1, 2, and 3 should be about 2 single spaced pages in length, and be in Microsoft Word format, or a format that can be read in Word.
  • Part 4 is an original graphic diagram(s) that should be included in the same document. If you have too much difficulty inserting the diagram, you may provide it as a separate file that can be read by Word, Excel or PowerPoint.
  • Compare your work to the Grading Rubric below to be sure you have met content and quality criteria.
  • Your submission should include your last name first in the filename:     Lastname_firstname_Stage_3

This source provides a rich quick background on the apartheid rule in South Africa and south-west Africa current day Namibia where the apartheid rule was established since 1948-the 1990s. The source offers a different view on the apartheid rule. It has shifted the idea of apartheid in racial discrimination perspective to how the national party NP used the rule to oppress both people of colour and white people regulation to keep the power. Hence the source provides a broader perspective between south Africa apartheid rule as both political and social system.In my thesis statement, I want to show that the apartheid rule was not all about racial discrimination only, but the white minority were again divided. Therefore this primary source literature is written towards the perspective based on my argument. The source shows how the national party used apartheid to retain power not from the people of color but also through the division of the white minority.

Since to understand the topic I need to know where the events related to my topic on apartheid took place, this source is well chosen to shed more light and a strong background on the apartheid rule in South Africa. The source explains my topic in-depth and even gives a development story on the whole issues of apartheid in South Africa. The source is essential in providing more background information and a rigid development of the entire event.The sources mainly focus on the apartheid rule and the development of the rule both politically and socially. Therefore the source will help me bring out or show which factor led to the first legislation of the apartheid rule back in 1948. These are things that should be found in the background and the development of the apartheid rule. This makes the source important.

 

Student Exploration: Carbon Cycle gizmo answer key

Student Exploration: Carbon Cycle
Vocabulary: atmosphere, biomass, biosphere, carbon reservoir, carbon sink, fossil fuel, geosphere, greenhouse gas, hydrosphere, lithosphere, photosynthesis
Prior Knowledge Questions (Do these BEFORE using the Gizmo.)
In the process of photosynthesis, plants take in carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere and water (H2O) from the soil. Using the energy of sunlight, plants build molecules of glucose (C6H12O6) and oxygen (O2).
How do plants on Earth affect the amount of carbon in Earth’s atmosphere?
Animals eat plants and produce carbon dioxide and water. How do animals affect the amount of carbon in Earth’s atmosphere?
Gizmo Warm-up
The Carbon Cycle Gizmo™ allows you to follow the many paths an atom of carbon can take through Earth’s systems. To begin, notice the black carbon atom in the Atmospheric CO2 area, highlighted in yellow. The glowing blue areas represent possible locations the carbon atom could go next.
From Earth’s atmosphere, where can the carbon atom go next?
Click on Land plants and read the description. How did the carbon atom get from the atmosphere to a plant?
Select Land animals. How did the carbon atom get from land plants into the animal?
Select Atmospheric CO2. How did the carbon atom get from land animals back to the atmosphere?
Activity A:
Carbon pathways
Get the Gizmo ready:
  • Click Reset.
Introduction: Earth can be divided into four systems. The atmosphere is the air above Earth’s surface. The hydrosphere is composed of all of Earth’s water. The geosphere is the rocky, non-living part of Earth. The biosphere consists of all living things, including people. Some scientists use the term “anthroposphere” to describe everything made or modified by humans.
Question: How does carbon move between the atmosphere, hydrosphere, biosphere, and geosphere?
Explore: Use the Gizmo to create a path for carbon that begins and ends in the atmosphere. Fill in the steps in the path below. Then, label each location with the system it represents. Finally, summarize very briefly how the carbon atom got to that location.
Create: Click Reset. Use the Gizmo to create a path in which the carbon atom goes from the atmosphere to the hydrosphere, biosphere and geosphere. Describe each transition briefly.
Atmosphere
Hydrosphere
Biosphere
Geosphere
Atmospheric CO2
Ocean
Marine plants/algae
     Sediments
Volcanoes, burning fossil fuels, and other sources.
Rain water breaks down exposed rocks.
During photosynthesis, marine algae and plants remove carbon dioxide
Uneaten plants and algae drift down to the ocean floor and becomes apart of marine sediments
(Activity A continued on next page)
Activity A (continued from previous page)
Explore: Use the Gizmo to create three more carbon paths, each starting and ending in the atmosphere. Label each location with A for atmosphere, B for biosphere, G for geosphere, or H for hydrosphere. (You can also use P for anthroposphere if you like, or just include it in the biosphere.)
Explain: Based on the Gizmo, explain how the following transitions might take place:
Describe at least two ways that carbon can get from a land plant to the atmosphere.
Describe at least two ways that carbon can get from the atmosphere to the hydrosphere.
Can you find two ways that carbon can get from the ocean to the lithosphere? (The lithosphere is the rigid layer of the Earth, including the crust and part of the mantle.)
Describe at least two ways that carbon can get from seashells to the atmosphere. 
Activity B:
Human activities
Get the Gizmo ready:
  • Click Reset.
Explore: Natural gas is a mixture of methane (CH4), ethane (C2H6), and other gases. Find two ways that natural gas forms. List the steps of the two carbon pathways below:
How is the formation of natural gas related to the formation of coal and petroleum?
Describe: Fossil fuels are used in many ways. Using the Gizmo, describe the main use for each fuel.
Coal:
Petroleum:
Natural gas:
In each case, what is the end product of burning the fossil fuel, and where does it go?
(Activity B continued on next page)
Activity B (continued from previous page)
Explore: Another major contribution to atmospheric carbon dioxide is the cement industry. Using the Gizmo, find a carbon atom path from the atmosphere to the cement plant. (Hint: One of the ingredients in cement is limestone.)
Path: Atmospheric CO2àOceanic CO2àShells/coralàLimestoneàCement
How is carbon dioxide produced in a cement plant?
Analyze: Click Reset, then navigate to the Land animals. Select Atmospheric CH4.
How do land animals create methane?
Humans raise large numbers of cattle for food. How will these herds of cows affect Earth’s atmosphere?
Activity C:
Modeling the carbon cycle
Get the Gizmo ready:
  • Select the MODELtab.
Introduction: Humans have been burning fossil fuels rapidly for the past 250 years. As a result, the amount of atmospheric CO2 has increased by about 40% since the year 1800. By measuring how much carbon moves into and out of the atmosphere, scientists can predict the change in the amount of atmospheric carbon dioxide every year.
Question: How can we model changes in atmospheric carbon over time?
Observe: The MODEL tab of the Gizmo shows a greatly simplified model of the carbon cycle. The ovals represent carbon reservoirs, where carbon is stored. The arrows represent the movement of carbon from one reservoir to another.
What are the two major sources of atmospheric carbon?
A carbon sink is a location that stores carbon for a long period of time. What are two carbon sinks that remove carbon from the atmosphere?
The unit “GtC” stands for gigatonnes of carbon, where one GtC is equal to one trillion kilograms of carbon. Without making any changes to the Gizmo, list the carbon reservoirs from largest to smallest.
Note: The largest carbon reservoir is actually Earth’s lithosphere, which contains about 80,000 GtC. However, there is not much exchange between the lithosphere and the other reservoirs on short time scales.
Experiment: If necessary, click Return to original settings. These settings approximate present-day conditions, but should not be taken as exact values.
What is the total amount of carbon removed from the atmosphere each year by the ocean and land plants?
What is the total amount of carbon added to the atmosphere from soil and the burning of fossil fuels? How much will atmospheric carbon change in one year?
In 10 years? In 100 years?
Calculate: Carbon dioxide is a greenhouse gas that helps to trap heat in Earth’s atmosphere. We need some CO2 in the atmosphere to maintain a warm planet, but excess carbon can cause considerable warming of the planet.
What fossil fuel usage will result in no change in atmospheric CO2 each year?
What percentage decrease in fossil fuel usage is required to achieve this goal?
Experiment: Using the Gizmo model, explore the following questions:
How does increasing plant biomass (amount of plants) affect atmospheric CO2?
How does increasing oceanic CO2 intake affect atmospheric CO2 and oceanic CO2?
As carbon dioxide is absorbed by the ocean, the ocean becomes slightly more acidic. This could make it harder for many organisms to build their shells and skeletons. The consequences of ocean acidification are not yet fully understood.
Infer: Click Reset and Return to original settings. Suppose we completely stopped burning fossil fuels immediately. How many years would it take to return to atmospheric CO2 levels from the year 1800, about 600 GtC? Use the Gizmo to find the answer.
Write a 350 word paragraph on your thoughts about the role CO2 plays in climate change and global warming. Is it the villain? Is something else the culprit? Do you think Canada is going overboard with reducing CO2 emissions when the rest of the world is not contributing?
