    Estimation, interpolation, forecasting and modeling are common engineering methodologies used to fit models to specific historical data. Recently, artificial neural networks have proven to be good candidates for modeling incorporating historical data. Also, fuzzy methods simulate complex and unpredictable systems in real-world applications. Adaptive filters, time series and statistical methods are... View full abstract»

    Robots are an integral part of today's industrial scenario. As a result, simulation has evolved as a major tool in the programming and the design of robots. Simulation in this sense includes actually having a computer draw conclusions about the workings of a system. These conclusions are derived from the knowledge already possessed about the system in question. It is, in effect, a knowledge based ... View full abstract»

  • Looking back: why the electric automobile lost market share. How social behavior can affect product technology

    Publication Year: 2000 , Page(s): 40 - 43

    The authors present a behavioral analysis of electric automobile market share loss, which shows that the explanation of technological trajectories requires more than a reference to performance characteristics and social factors. Although historical narratives furnish us with plausible accounts incorporating social and behavioral variables, they do not identify the underlying general processes and ... View full abstract»

  • A schooling on their implications for software engineering [trends]

    Publication Year: 2000 , Page(s): 11 - 13

    A discussion is presented on trends in software engineering. This can be done by simply extrapolating some of the popular, current trends. And, in fact, we examine a few of these obvious indicators. However, software engineering has had new approaches that are more revolutionary than evolutionary. In particular, we try to discern trends in software engineering based on trends in delivered software... View full abstract»

    Any product development involves projecting its potential success in achieving its functional and commercial goals. Better quality designs that match customer needs and preferences and integrate other lifecycle issues early in the software development process are more likely to be competitive. Thus, there is significant concern in industry about quality product design, which is addressed by qualit... View full abstract»

  • Time and the eyes to see [waveform analysis]

    Publication Year: 2000 , Page(s): 4 - 6

    In engineering we frequently make use of an oscilloscope to see the various forms of waves with which we work. If it is a sound wave, we would use a microphone to capture the wave. The microphone is known as a transducer, converting the acoustic energy into electrical energy. A photo-sensor acts as a transducer for a light wave and an antenna is able to retrieve a radio wave. To interpret the wave... View full abstract»

  • Computational finance models

    Publication Year: 2000 , Page(s): 8 - 10

    The author discusses his involvement in developing computational finance software. These computational finance models attempt to model the randomness of a stock's price. At a fixed future time, a stock's price is modeled as a random variable with a normal distribution centered about the current price adjusted with a simple growth multiplier. The standard deviation of this normal distribution depen... View full abstract»
