Securing IoT Devices: What are the Challenges?
Security practitioners suggest that key IoT security steps include:
1) Make people aware that there is a threat to security;
2) Design a technical solution to reduce security vulnerabilities;
3) Align the legal and regulatory frameworks; and
4) Develop a workforce with the skills to handle IoT security.
Final Assignment – Project Plan (Deliverables):
Address each of the FOUR IoT security steps listed above in terms of IoT devices.
Explain in detail, in a step-by-step guide, how to make people more aware of the problems associated with the use of IoT devices.

Select a suitable BIM-enabled case study project that is ripe for analysis. This

Select a suitable BIM-enabled case study project that is ripe for analysis. This could be a prominent,  widely available BIM-enabled case, where useful materials are readily and publicly available, or one that  the student is currently, or has previously worked on. Such a project should only be one that you have  normal access to information. If such a project is a ‘building’ or ‘live site’, then this should only be one that  you have the ‘normal’, and ‘necessary’ permissions to access externally and/or internally (i.e. you are not  to engage in any trespass of any building/site that you do not have normal permission to enter). Also note  that you should not ‘cold-contact’ professionals to attempt to arrange access to any project that you do  not have normal access to.  If you need a discussion to advise if the proposed BIM-enabled project is suitable for the purposes of  case study analysis, then arrange to have this discussion with one of the module tutors by teaching week  6.  MCE | Learning and Teaching Version 2.1 | Page 3 of 4 In addition to the case study analysis, you should throughout the module, be equipping yourself on other  related aspects of contemporary Construction Project Management practice. To do this and develop your  topic specific knowledge and understanding, and help you develop your intellectual skills and abilities in  this subject, you are to engage with the academic and professional literature around the art, science, and  discipline of Construction Project Management.  Therefore, in addition to describing the BIM-enabled case study project itself, your coursework  submission is expected primarily draw upon, and refer to, the body of academic work in this area.  You should evidence this engagement via appropriate and quality in-text referencing, that is cited  correctly throughout. It is also reasonable to expect that some elements in your review will also be  informed by discussions held in the module or from any credible BIM-related websites (for example,  www.bimacademy.ac.uk, www.thenbs.com, https://www.cdbb.cam.ac.uk/) as these are useful in  highlighting current issues and offering additional supporting information.  Again, the work is to be properly structured and supported through ‘academic’ research using appropriate  and quality references which are cited correctly throughout. A separate, properly formatted references list  must also be provided in the submission at the end of the document.

Summary:
Instructions: As acting quality engineer, you have been asked to prepare a control plan for a customer that requires the following specifications:
A.     Inside diameter          1.673 +/- 0.001 inches
B.     Outside diameter       3.562 +/- 0.005 inches
C.     Thickness                    0.875 +/- 0.0005 inches 
Characteristic A is considered to be of major importance, meaning that if not held to the specification tolerance there is some risk that product failure will occur.
Characteristic B is also of major importance.
Characteristic C is considered to be a critical characteristic, meaning that if not help to specified tolerance there will definitely be failure.
You have examined the capability of the process and can conclude the following:
Characteristic A has a Cpk of 1.21
Characteristic B has a Cpk of 1.93
Characteristic C has a Cpk of 1.93
In a single Word document, minimum 3 full pages (not including cover page, citations, and appendices), using appropriate APA,
Describe your control plan and the logic for how you developed your ideas. 
Additionally, detail how this plan should be communicated to the organization. 
Discuss how an improvement team could be utilized and where they should start by formulating a clear statement of the problem, decide who should collect the data, determine an appropriate sampling method, and what additional quantitative methods can be used to benchmark current process and measure improvement after implementing continuous improvement actions.

Coursework Tasks to be Completed by Students CLIENT PROJECT BRIEF As part of Riv

Coursework Tasks to be Completed by Students CLIENT PROJECT BRIEF As part of Riverside Sunderland Masterplan, the Sunderland City Council plans to build 1,000 homes to  rent and buy, with community facilities and social infrastructure for a population of 2,500. The proposed  project seeks to create a unique place to live, i.e. a carbon-neutral community in a stunning landscape  setting in the heart of a great industrial city. With an extensive walking and cycling network and easy  access to public transport, Riverside Sunderland will encourage healthy living and reduce car  dependency. Smart homes will be digitally enabled for comfort, convenience and energy efficiency. Community facilities will promote sociability and active citizenship. Following the recent entry of the insurance giant, Legal and General, into the housing market, others are  keen to get involved too. In particular, Vitality Life has secured (for the purposes of this task) a  collaboration with the Sunderland City Council, as the primary funder, to deliver the vision for the  Riverside development project, specifically, the 1,000 homes. The first 800 homes will be delivered in four new neighbourhoods: Vaux, Farringdon Row, Ayre’s Quay  and Sheepfolds. As the new community takes shape other opportunities will come forward, notably in the  Heart of the City. 45% of the new homes (367 units) will be south of the river, at Vaux, Farringdon Row  and Ayre’s Quay, and 55% (445) north of the river, at Sheepfolds. The majority (72%) will be houses and maisonettes including 378 3/4-bedroom family houses. The  development will aim to achieve a relatively high density of around 74 homes per hectare across the  MCE | Learning and Teaching Version 2.0 | Page 3 of 6 whole site, with a limit of less than one car parking pace per dwelling, due to the big push to reduce car  dependency and promote active travel. Key Programme Features are described below: 1. standardised designs, 2. more accurate market intelligence, 3. providing jobs, training and supply-chain opportunities for Sunderland residents and businesses, 4. reduced costs with an ambitious 15% target, 5. improved programme certainty, 6. reduced risk, and 7. greater innovation and improved relationships across the supply chain. Key Project features are described below: 1. Substantial cost savings, 2. Innovative, high-quality designs and sustainable standards, 3. Flexible use of space, 4. Tight construction programme with improved programme certainty, 5. Collaborative working by integrated team, across Client and Contractor teams, 6. Commitment to local economy, and 7. Improved employment and skills outputs. The Council put forward its land assets in this partnership with Vitality Life who will, in turn, provide the  finance for the £160 million development, with both parties sharing equally in any development profit  where a development achieves a positive land value. Although planning approval for the scheme has not yet been granted, planners are confident that this will  be secured. Although the Council’s inhouse estates team has technical construction expertise, they have  no capacity to design and project manage a scheme of this magnitude. They are therefore now seeking to  procure the necessary expertise to move the project forward: • Necessary consultants to assist in getting the project off the ground by January 2022. • Construction contractor(s) and such other specialists as are necessary to carry out the various  elements of construction work. • The council’s own inhouse estates team has some initial ideas which they’re keen to explore with  the selected consultant designers. • The client is undecided on whether to award the entire project as one contract or to break it into the  four natural packages, according to the four new neighbourhoods, namely: Vaux, Farringdon Row, Ayre’s Quay and Sheepfolds. • The client is also undecided as to what other key consultant it needs to assist in the securing the  completed project in order to achieve completion by September 2023. As the only one with procurement expertise within the Local Authority’s inhouse estates Team, you have  been tasked to develop a report (refer to “Tasks to be completed by students” for further details) to guide  the council in the procurement of the various works and services required on this major redevelopment project. The client is eager to use this project to improve the image of the North East as well as to attract  investment to Sunderland. TASKS TO BE COMPLETED BY STUDENTS Based on the client project brief above, prepare a high level but comprehensive procurement  report for the client, which: 1. Provides a ‘road map’ for the Local Authority, demonstrating how you should procure each  of the works and services, how the client can ensure that the scheme is completed within  budget and on time, how the client and funding partners will be involved at each stage of  the process, and other specific consultants and project participants you propose they  MCE | Learning and Teaching Version 2.0 | Page 4 of 6 should procure and their primary roles in the process. In the submitted report, due  consideration should be given to: a) Identifying the client and stakeholder needs based on this brief and associated  documentation, b) the most suitable procurement arrangement, bearing in mind the variety of options, c) the most suitable main standard form of contract to support the overall strategy, d) The most suitable tendering strategy for obtaining the most economically  advantageous tender, e) the mechanism for pricing and agreeing the price for the project, 2. Provide a critical analysis of how the Sunderland City Council and its development partners  might be able to achieve their broad aim of driving efficiencies through the supply chain and thereby save 15% of total construction and design costs.

Your New Business – Business Plan
Like so many others before you, you have decided to set up your own business.
Having investigated various options, you have concluded that your ‘idea’ is viable, it suits you and can be developed to be an interesting enterprise with rewarding financial results. Your project can be as small or as big as you want to. Similarly, your ‘idea’ does not have to be ’unique’. In fact you might consider bringing an established service or product to a new market or develop an existing concept to a new application. It is advisable that you select a business that is not totally fictitious or imaginary. The closest you are to reality, the easier it will be for you to think your project through properly and present it to others. Ideally, you want to present something that you are genuinely considering as an alternative for your future. Who knows? Maybe it will happen one day!
To get your new business started, you need to approach financiers / lenders / investors to help you raise the necessary capital for your purposes. You therefore need to put together a business proposal (else known as a Business Plan (BP)) which will include a comprehensive description of the new business and any other additional material that will convince your audience to back you up. You should be clear in how much funding you need, for how long and how you are going to pay back in a way that will be worthwhile for your supporters. The structure of a good plan has been discussed in class (Please check Topic 4: Business Plan on Moodle). Please take use Topic 4 as template for your report.
It is important that your Business Plan adequately covers what you plan to achieve, in a way that it generates interest and confidence in your arguments. It is worth keeping in mind at all times the golden rule:
you + idea + (money/credit + facilities/people) = Product/service +
marketing = Money/credit = Profit
