The Example Projects for Oracle Intelligent Advisor Series 2022 : Emergency Response

So here we are, already at the next article in this Example Project series. This week we will look at the Emergency Response project.

This is the 5th Example Project in the set provided with Oracle Policy Modeling. The Emergency Response Example Project is an excellent source of ideas and inspiration for your own learning or demonstrations. There is a video code-along demonstration at the end of this article and we have already shared some learning ideas in this article from a couple of years ago.

So let’s get into the Emergency Response Example Project:

Time needed: 30 minutes.

How to use the Emergency Response Project in Oracle Intelligent Advisor

  1. How to use the Emergency Response Project

    The concept behind the Example Project is that of a quick-to-use, simple to understand application for motorist to signal a road traffic accident to the authorities with information about the vehicles and dangerous substances that may have been involved in the accident.Emergency Response

  2. What does the Emergency Response Project demonstrate

    This project demonstrates several interesting features of Oracle Intelligent Advisor. Here are the key takeaways:

    The project is designed for a smaller screen form factor – which has been configured in the Styles dialog as you will see in the accompanying video below. In addition, a custom static header image has been added to provide a simple branding.

    The project data model is extremely simple and the attributes are all at the Global level. The images provided of hazardous substances are also available for use in the Project folders. The project makes good use of styles in the interview to create a very clean layout. There are only four rules in the project, which makes it an ideal source of inspiration and modification for your own learning purposes.

    Finally, the inclusion of a dynamic URL to show a map is a good way to learn about Google Maps or indeed any other mapping platform and the different ways to include that within the Interview.

  3. Adaptation Ideas for Emergency Response

    The project itself is so targeted and simple that it is in fact an excellent place to start stretching your legs and adding some complexity to it for demonstration or education purposes. Here are the different things (and this is not an exhaustive list by any means) that you could focus on:

    a) Tidy up the rules to provide more natural language text.
    b) Modify the link to the Google Map site.
    c) Add an entity to manage the hazardous substances for easy submitting to a back-office application.
    d) Use an Inference Table and Image Buttons to implement the entity.
    e) Use images to improve the visual sliders.
    f) If you are familiar with JavaScript you add real Maps integration as we will in the video.
    g) Consider providing translations to the project for multi-lingual support.
    h) Add Value Lists to support some of the data entry and display.

    There really is quite a lot of fun to be had in this project. If you are interested in how to do all of that, watch the video at the bottom of the article!

  4. Upsides and Downsides

    The Emergency Response Example Project is easy to modify to demonstrate the styling and Interview design features of Oracle Intelligent Advisor. Since the project has very little Word or Excel based content, it is also a good target if you want to add rules to handle some extra complexity, for example to display extra Screens if certain criteria are met, or to ask further questions if the motorist has the time and is in a safe place.

    It is also reasonably easy to imagine repurposing the interview to address different situations – for example a loadmaster on board a goods train or a ferry. However it would be counterproductive to move too far away from the initial idea of hazards and managing goods.
