  • Managing intellectual property: Nail it down before you lose it

    Publication Year: 2002, Page(s):266 - 267

    Managing intellectual property is about using intellectual property rights (IPR) to protect an innovative concept in order to produce a commercial advantage. Intellectual property rights are the building blocks for managing intellectual property. They are a collection of registrable and unregistrable rights which have different, but sometimes overlapping, uses. IPR includes patents, registered des... View full abstract»

  • Some dimensions of risk not often considered by engineers

    Publication Year: 2002, Page(s):268 - 272

    For many years risk analysis has informed the design and operation of technologically risky systems, and many engineers and scientists consider risk to be objectively measurable. But a great deal of research into the subject by social scientists, including psychological studies into risk perception and decision-making, should interest engineers and could inform improvements to the process of risk ...

    If there is a single point at which today's global IT industry was born, it could be argued that it was on the 17th November 1951, when LEO, the Lyons Electronic Office, ran the first business application on an electronic computer. 50 years later a conference was held in London to mark the '50 years of business computing'. This article is based on the 2001 Pinkerton Lecture given on the 5th Novemb... View full abstract»

  • Oilfield control system

    Publication Year: 2002, Page(s):281 - 286
    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (319 KB)

    Real-time control techniques for measuring parameters in crude oil storage tanks are described. The techniques enable the height of the oil/water layer in the storage tanks to be measured. By using this measuring technique for the oil-water interface, with the height of the interface in the tanks, coupled with the measurements of the water/oil content ratio, the density and flow rate of crude oil ...

  • Introduction to systems engineering with use cases

    Publication Year: 2002, Page(s):289 - 297

    Systems engineering copes with complexity by organising development hierarchically into subsystems, some being software. Use cases are organised collections of scenarios, used to define the purposes of systems and software. They are well established in software engineering but more controversial for systems. Well organised use case models are suitable for eliciting and analysing functional require... View full abstract»

  • Developing a raster detector system with the J array processing language

    Publication Year: 2002, Page(s):299 - 304
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (443 KB)

    All digital copying aims to reproduce an original image as faithfully as possible under certain constraints. In the past, image processing had to be implemented in hardware for performance reasons. Here, a 100% software solution is outlined. In order to find such a solution an appropriate methodology based on the array processing language J is used. Although J is ideal for prototyping such designs... View full abstract»

  • Advanced control of a hydrogen reformer

    Publication Year: 2002, Page(s):305 - 314

    The objective of the hydrogen reformer process is to produce hydrogen by catalysis from desulphurised hydrocarbons. The controller to be designed is the fuel flow controller, whose main objective is to maintain the reformer at a constant temperature despite important variations in the temperature of the input steam. With the proposed controller the simulation demonstrates that the output temperatu... View full abstract»

    A commercial system for distributed document management, which was designed during a recent TCS Programme, is described. A brief introduction to the commercial partner, AMI-The Advance Group Ltd., is given, and the design features required from the system are discussed. The article concludes by discussing the degree of commercial success accruing from the system and the associated business demands... View full abstract»
