    Several synchronisation problems should be solved in order to develop interactive multimedia applications in the distributed environment. These problems include intra-medium synchronisation, inter-media synchronisation, and interactive synchronisation. The dynamic extended finite state machine (DEFSM) model, and the corresponding control schemes to handle four VCR-like user interactions, i.e. reve... View full abstract»

    A current EPSRC project, product introduction process: a simulation in the extended enterprise (PIPSEE) is discussed. PIPSEE attempts to improve the execution of the product introduction process (PIP) within an extended enterprise in the aerospace sector. The modus operandi for accomplishing this has been to develop process understanding amongst a core team, spanning four different companies, thro... View full abstract»

    Prior research has shown that high levels of software reuse can be achieved through the use of object-oriented frameworks. An object-oriented framework captures the common aspects of a family of applications, thus allowing the designers and implementers to reuse this experience at the design and code levels. In spite of being a powerful design solution, frameworks are not always easy to use. A tec... View full abstract»

    The authors describe a language based approach to the specification of authorisation policies that can be used to support the range of access control policies in commercial object systems. They discuss the issues involved in the design of a language for role based access control systems. The notion of roles is used as a primitive construct within the language. The basic constructs of the language ... View full abstract»
