  • CACSD tools for the control engineer [computer aided control systems design]

    Publication Year: 1988, Page(s):1/1 - 1/6
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (224 KB)

    A typical control system design package can be divided into three components, input or data acquisition, algorithmic processing and output. The input structures usually contain facilities for the rapid change of system parameters so that the user can iteratively guide the solution to a point within an acceptable performance envelope by monitoring the output and using his experience and skill in th...

    Automatic test equipment (ATE), whilst providing sufficient hardware to create stimuli and measure system responses, is found lacking as a solution to the test problem. Present ATE systems provide a choice of in-circuit tests with problems of back-driving, lack of system test and fixture costs or functional test with high test program generation costs. Analogue testing historically has remained in... View full abstract»

  • The role of systems thinking in diffusion of new technologies

    Publication Year: 1988, Page(s):7/1 - 7/4
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (220 KB)

    This paper represents a personal view of the influence that systems awareness has, or more correctly should have, in the successful transition of new technology from its research base to the full achievement of its utilisation potential within industry. This view has been developed during the study of the application of computer vision systems to industry, so this field of technology is used as an... View full abstract»

    Discusses the engineering aspects of the introduction and support of flight simulators. The author relates present simulator design methods to likely developments for future combat aircraft, and illustrates how new technologies and philosophies for the support of military systems will influence system engineers View full abstract»

    It is likely that any group of related human activities will need some form of management programme to see that they are carried through. If the related activities are considered to be a project, then the art of managing the project embraces many skills and often requires knowledge of many disciplines. The information or instructions to be communicated are often complex and, if care is not taken, ... View full abstract»

  • Getting SEAMS straight [systems engineering analysis and management support]

    Publication Year: 1988, Page(s):5/1 - 511
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (456 KB)

    Systems engineering is lagging behind. Software engineering debacles have fuelled a vigorous response in the form of software tools, fourth generation languages, relational databases and yet more exciting plans; major systems engineering fiascos have, in fact, been even more spectacular but have as yet received no corresponding attention. The paper presents SEAMS, a metasystem for developing compl... View full abstract»

  • Maintenance management tools

    Publication Year: 1988, Page(s):4/1 - 4/4
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (168 KB)

    Maintenance management is the last cost saving frontier of scientific management. For generations, top management has concentrated on finance, administration, marketing and production, largely ignoring maintenance-maintenance has been considered a necessary evil. But noticeable changes have occurred in the 1980s. Firstly, the cost to keep plant and equipment in operation has escalated tremendously... View full abstract»
