How Factories have Changed Before and After Internet of Things : A Comparison

This report is concerned with comparing factories before and after the Internet of Things (loT), determine the differences in terms of cost, time, waste, and accuracy.


The foremost reason why KFUPM students should obtain part-time jobs is to increase job

opportunities. Part-time jobs help students form realistic conceptions of the work environment. This

gives them a better understanding of the nature of work and renders them preferable workers due to

their awareness and competence. According to Maverick (2015), eight out of ten business owners favor

applicants with former work experience, regardless of the field. This means that students who have

taken part-time jobs are more competent in the market field than those who have not, as a result, they

are considered as high in demand, which means they have better odds of having an occupation right

after graduation. Also, part-time jobs can lead to networking opportunities which can help students

when they are looking for a full-time job. Johnson (2016) states that part-time jobs expand connections,

which leads to increased job chances. This means that part-time jobs can provide students with better

chances of acquiring prominent and distinguished positions. So, having part-time jobs can prepare

students mentally and help them build up their connections which brings about more life opportunities.

Term Report


Finding your sources

You must use four to five sources to write your term report. Your choice of sources is very important.

Choosing ‘good’ sources makes it easier to write your report. Choosing bad sources makes it difficult.

Some sources are likely to be unsuitable. Avoid academic journals. They are usually too difficult. Avoid

blogs or ‘open’ sources. Contributors may not be experts. Good sources are encyclopedias for basic

background information, reputable websites, magazines like Popular Science and The Economist and

general-interest magazines such as Time and Newsweek. Quality newspapers such as the Arab News and

Saudi Gazette are also very good sources.

Your teacher may set particular guidelines for the sources you find. For example, he may expect

sources to be fairly new (published within, say, the last one or two years); he may expect sources to

adhere to a minimum and maximum length (e.g., between one and five pages long, he will expect you to

use reputable websites and read online sources whose authors have a relevant background; he may

forbid certain websites, such as Wikipedia. Following your teacher’s guidelines will affect your report

grade so be sure you fully understand them before you begin your research.

Find your sources through the Internet by entering specific search terms into a search engine such as

Google. Your teacher will give you some basic classroom instruction in research methodology,

particularly in the choice of effective search terms.

Evaluating your sources

Whenever you find a potential source, you must first evaluate it before you can start using it to write

your report. Using effective search terms will increase your chances of finding relevant sources but many

of the sources you find which look useful at first glance may turn out to be irrelevant after you have read

them critically. The following points set out the criteria that will help you evaluate your sources.

1. Is the source relevant?

Your chances of finding relevant sources will increase if you use more specific search terms. For example,

using “Three Gorges Dam environmental impacts” is likely to yield more relevant sources than simply

using “Three Gorges Dam. In order to write your source evaluation later, you will also need to be able to

connect specific information in the source with the corresponding topics in your evolving plan. If you

can’t, your source will not be relevant.

2. Is the source written at an appropriate level?

Your search may turn up some sources that are too difficult to understand and others that are too
