    The key is that quality is about prevention. If one lived in a perfect world where everything was done right first time, where all communications were performed without ambiguity, where people worked in harmony, one would not need to think about quality at all! The purpose of implementing a quality management system is to improve the efficiency and the effectiveness of the business. The opportunit... View full abstract»

    The use of the fast fourier transform (FFT) algorithm in commercially available and custom-built digital spectrum analysers has resulted in an increasing interest in system identification in the frequency domain. Historically, pseudo-random binary signals have been widely used as perturbation signals for system identification because they are easy to generate using simple shift-register circuitry,...

  • Managing IS/IT strategic planning

    Publication Year: 1991 , Page(s): 156 - 160

    The extensive promotion of IS/IT strategic planning in the 1980s raised expectations that have not been met. In large parts this resulted from an emphasis of IS/IT planning as a one-off exercise rather than as a management process integrated into the business planning cycle-a requirement for the 1990s. In essence, IS/IT strategic planning is a repetitive activity. It involves integration, iteratio... View full abstract»
