For this assignment, you will be conducting the usability test utilizing the usability questionnaire that you developed in Week 3. First, you will need to select 4–5 testers. Craft a Usability Test Instruction Guide that contains all of the tourist user interface prototype screens that you created in week 2. Also, include a disclaimer that the participants’ identities and participation will not be shared with a third-party organization. Send it to the testers, via e-mail, along with the usability questionnaire. Please request that they return the questionnaire in 4–5 days so that you have time to tally the results before this assignment is due. Thank them for their participation. You may want to engage some of your classmates and your professor as potential testers as they understand the time constraint.

To tally the results, you will need to aggregate the following:

Compute the average for each of the usability questions in section 2 and present it in a results spreadsheet. Include a couple of analysis statements discussing the results. What changes will you make based on these results?

Compute the average for each of the function questions in section 3 and present them in the same results spreadsheet. Include a couple of analysis statements discussing the results. What changes will you make based on these results?

Evaluate the demographics to see if that had an impact on individual results.

Summarize the comments at the bottom of the usability questionnaire and discuss changes you will make to the prototype design based on this feedback.

One of the more traditional assignments that students encounter in an Art History class is to go to a museum and/or gallery to observe an object(s) and write a paper that details its stylistic features.  The greater Miami area has very fine collections of Contemporary art, including the cluster of galleries in Wynwood, The Margulies Collection, the Rubell Family Collection in Wynwood, as well as The Museum of Contemporary Art in North Miami (MOCA NoMi), the Miami Art Museum (MAM),  and the Frost Art Museum on the University Park campus of Florida International University (FIU).  Any of these venues will serve as an effective means for selecting an object, whether a painting, sculpture, combine, installation, et al. Select an object, paying close attention to its stylistic features.  Describe it, and then compare/contrast it to pieces we have studied in class, whether in the PowerPoint lectures or in the textbook. ; When selecting objects to compare, be discerning.  That is, try to find objects that share more characteristics than not.  The aim of this assignment is for students to develop an eye for style and to locate the subtle differences that distinguish one technique or tendency from another. Organize the paper, which should be five (5) pages in length (excluding imagery), into an introductory paragraph, body, and conclusion.  The introduction may include some general information (e.g., historical, economic, cultural) about the object’s specific time period, the technique utilized to create the object, etc.  More importantly, the introduction should include a thesis statement about the object’s overall aesthetic.  Then organize the body in a logical, analytic fashion, and conclude the paper with some remarks about the significance of the object — that is, how it fits into a larger, contemporary art historical framework.  Remember, this is NOT a research paper; however, if you quote a source (e.g., a placard from the museum/gallery or web site), be sure to cite it.

DORM W/ MODULAR CONSTRUCTION OF UDC

IN WASHINGTON DC, USA

Modular construction approaches with a different way to essentials of traditional construction’s process such as on site, labor, material and coordination. This significant approach brings out the new issues and obstacles. (Khan, 2015). For instance, according to research of Khan, average 40-50 percent of modular construction is being completed onsite after the modules transportation. Cause of structural and transportation reasons, rest of the components such as roofing, porches, stairs as well as other horizontal and vertical connections including heating, plumbing and electrical services is left to complete the onsite. This scholarly research of Khan is not only a substantial evident of how transportation important is, but also it reveals that there is still insufficient transportation systems which do not meet the demands.

Haskell ( 2018) mentions how modular or prefabricated construction methods emerge with challenges such as augmentation of crane and transportation risk. Haskell also emphasizes how transportation of modular construction and crane operations will be demanded. Velamati talks about a specific project and district, and gives point to importance of transportation with personal observations. Without limitation of location and transportation will increase the modular construction. Due to road size and load restrictions, modular deliveries to site is being more complex. (Velamati, 2012). For instance, road sizes are not allowed to create an achievable structural spans. If transportation limitations are resolved, the modular construction will catch a high flexibility producing the components. (Doran & Giannakis, 2011)

All in one, the modular construction has a high potential and flexibility with an unlimited design concepts. The modular construction can be improved dealing with inherent transportation limitations.

The article has elaborated on the components thereof in the building and construction. The article indicates the foundation of the buildings that include the extension of the anchor bolts in the building periphery. On the lower part of the anchor bolts, there is an installation of the metal lower track. The thereto are secured well with bolts and the rod couplers. There is the installation of the pre-manufactured panels of the wall. The building will be installed of two panels that are in study and in the lateral edge close to the study. The panel are well surrounded with the connector rods. The building process will therefore progress till the formation of the peripheral walls.

The Modular Construction is practised widely for multi-storey building in Europe. The article will review most of the modular technologies that are utilized and more so elaborate on the use of cellular approach in construction. The article will present many case studies of 12 and 25 storey building in Europe. The case study is educational to offer knowledge on the construction and design of large storey in the region. The article will also elaborate on the relationship between the structural action and the also architectural plan in the constructions. The availability of the given modules and the concrete will improve the design opportunities.

From the article, the modular construction will have more than one unit of structures that are fabricated in the manufacturing project. The article discusses on the completion of the modules in the construction. In construction, the prefabricated modules will be finished with inclusion of the trim jobs, plumbing and electrical mechanization. The article has indicated the importance of utilization of the modular construction that will include the reduced number of labourers, reduced emission of poisonous gases and ensure quality of the construction in the jobsite. In this case, the article will be very educative as I undertake the construction project in the United States of America.

The source will discuss on the blocks of building, the structures of building and the methods that are used in building. The construction blocks will comprise of the preform that have a passageway. These preforms are developed from the plastics, concrete and the steel that reinforce several bars to develop foundations, roofs, footing and the girders. The construction blocks usually contain five holes of block that have five passageways that extend therethrough. In this article, the building structures and the kits will be elaborated together with the building methods and furring strips.

The source discuses utilization of modular construction in the constructions of the residential houses that have between 4 and 8 storeys. The article discusses on the modular technologies as well as the presentation of load tests. The article presents a design method that is used in the modular development is developed upon consideration of the installation tolerance. The article indicates that the modular wall need to have plasterboard and the sheathing external board that prevent that axis buckling along the section C. The article has also undertaken the tests of the thickness of the C section and the level of resistance posed. Generally, the article will be very useful to offer discussion on the way to construct and ideas to follow in the modular construction.

The article has elaborated on the construction that would incur a lower cost in the jobsite. The low cost construction would be very relevant in the study that I will undertake in the United States of America. The success of a project will depend on the availability of the resources in the construction. In this article, the modules will always be produced and taken to the jobsites using the trailers The article also discusses on the production to develop a plan of the floors in the construction.

The article discuses on the advantages of the prefabrication in construction. The use of the prefabrication is motivated by the anecdotal evidence together with the evaluations in terms of costs of the buildings. The article has second the use of the Holistic criteria when there is a selection of the method of construction of the building at its early phases. The article has undertaken a review of various literatures on the same idea of sustainable performance. The article has also documented on the survey among the US practitioners on the need of prefabrication. The results of the undertaken survey have indicated that construction need to consider environmental and the social issues.

The article offers description of the modular elements that are used in the building and constructions. The elements that are discussed could be used in the construction of the furniture or any form of sculptures that have a flat member that subsequently have three arranged legs and sides that are arc-side. The article has discussed on the assembly of elements with a centre element. The article would also be useful when developing the storey building. There some areas that will require the carpentry skills used in the construction of the furniture.

The article offers explanation on the construction of story building that were undertaken in the United States of America together with the environmental impacts. The modular building has advantages in the US through its cost effectiveness and time effectiveness. The modular construction will need many infrastructures unlike the conventional construction. The environment impact assessment is not very clear in such a case. The article would also be very relevant in the study that I will contact as I will need to undertake environmental conservation in the analysis. The article has elaborated on the impact of the production of materials, material transportation and the management of wastes.
