    There are two general structures to design a control system through a network. The first structure is to have several subsystems, in which each of the subsystem contains a set of sensors, a set of actuators, and a controller by itself. These system components are attached to the same control plant. In this case, a subsystem controller receives a set point from the central controller. Another struc... View full abstract»

    Monitoring a factory remotely over the Internet introduces a variety of issues: how to capture the factory's data in a Web-accessible database, locate the data from anywhere in the world, display it locally using a Web browser, protect private data during transmission, and shield it from unauthorized viewing. Solving those problems from scratch would be difficult, but fortunately that is not neces... View full abstract»

    Since the first discussion about the software crisis in 1968 many concepts in order to improve software development and reuse have been introduced. Some of them, like frameworks or components aim on the reuse of code, others capture experiences with system architecture, design or coding recommendations. This paper focuses on a way to express the reuse of pieces of software and design reasoning. We... View full abstract»
