    This is a story of 24 months in an NHS Trust Hospital (in the UK) as experienced by an engineer who abandoned pure engineering to become a computer systems professional (to use a phrase of the times). Having spent 11 years in the industrial sector working on medium to large system control systems, one takes the skills and experience obtained and translates them into pure analysis and creating a pr...

    There is a certain irony in that a technology which was first developed in 18th century France has now become inextricably linked with leading edge computer based systems and technologies. Hot air balloons and other lighter than air flying machines have come an awful long way in every sense since the Montgolfier brothers' flimsy paper craft first took to the skies in 1783. A quantum leap in burner... View full abstract»

    A brief and informal overview is given of a new framework which permits timeliness to be expressed and enforced for the whole real time continuum in a well defined and general way. The framework has been successfully implemented and used experimentally. The new model of timeliness which was created is called the benefit accrual model. It is a framework for expressing timeliness requirements across... View full abstract»

    One of the fastest growing market segments among control and automation technologies is the introduction and development of control network systems. Although fieldbus systems have been used for several years in industrial automation, control network systems opened the market to different application areas, such as home and building automation. The current activities in both fieldbus and control ne... View full abstract»
