  • Information brokerage for online automated enterprises

    Publication Year: 1999, Page(s):5 - 10
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (583 KB)

    Information brokerage is a range of intermediary services between consumers and information sources. In this scenario, automated online businesses emerge and continually re-assess their market and self-organise to fulfil their optimal business development. This process is likely to involve increasingly active intelligent elements in the global net. The global interactions of large masses of inform... View full abstract»

  • 'Soft' control desks and alarm display

    Publication Year: 1999, Page(s):11 - 16
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (642 KB)

    Recent years have seen many process plants replace hard desk operator interfaces with modern computer based VDU interfaces. Alarm systems have similarly undergone a transformation in their user interface. The article describes some of the developments within the UK coal-fired generating industry in moving to the new technology, with specific reference to alarm display philosophy. View full abstract»

  • Migrating towards co-operative requirements engineering

    Publication Year: 1999, Page(s):17 - 22
    Cited by:  Papers (3)
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (567 KB)

    Systems development has moved from treating systems as purely technical problems, towards seeing systems as parts of the users' environment. Stakeholders such as operators are increasingly involved in requirements engineering in particular. Requirements engineering is balanced between cooperating with the stakeholders who own the requirements, and the need for a controlled process of development. ... View full abstract»

  • Simulation of ceramic firing

    Publication Year: 1999, Page(s):23 - 27
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (391 KB)

    Ceramic firing is an irreversible process. Cracking and excessive deformation reduce the yield which, at this stage of manufacture, is particularly undesirable both economically and environmentally, since firing is a very high energy process. A model has been developed to predict the temperature fields within ceramic pieces during firing and to simulate the associated ceramic deformation. View full abstract»

  • Management paradigm to reduce information overload

    Publication Year: 1999, Page(s):29 - 32
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (439 KB)

    Information overload is becoming the plague of many modern businesses. In contrast to increased managerial efficiency, evidence suggests that this glut of information is delaying decisions, causing confusion, exhaustion and errors. The article outlines a different approach to information management enabled by Web technologies. It describes how information pull reduces management overheads and how ... View full abstract»

  • Cyclic scheduling, formal methods and information modelling

    Publication Year: 1999, Page(s):33 - 39
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (688 KB)

    As real time control engineering requirements become ever more demanding, and as post emergent technologies become a manufacturing possibility, the engineer is forced to seek new methods of analysis and design to maintain the efficiency and quality of the real time software development process. The article discusses how techniques originating in the field of information modelling are being success... View full abstract»
