  • Development of a management information system at South Bank Polytechnic

    Publication Year: 1991, Page(s):7 - 12
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (552 KB)

    The prospect of wholly independent status for South Bank Polytechnic in the late 1980s, responsible for its own finance, property and personnel, gave considerable motivation towards improving management structures and information systems. The Peat Marwick McLintock analysis of the overall management information needs of the Polytechnic identified the interrelationship of five information sources: ... View full abstract»

    The author discusses the evolution of the industrial robot and the enabling technologies which dominate the subject of robotics. In the early 1960s the available supporting technology in electronics and computing was not sufficiently well developed to expect a successful industrial robot to take its place in the manufacturing scene. It was not until the mid 1970s that the robot started to make an ... View full abstract»

    PCs together with their wide range of third-party expansion hardware and high-level software give the R&D engineer the means to provide powerful and low-cost one-off instrumentation tools specifically tailored to his unique requirements. Where more robust or multiple applications are required PC compatible processor cards for industrial bus systems enable direct transfer into an industry standard ... View full abstract»

    The military customer of today is faced with escalating costs and inadequate reliability and availability of avionic systems. The evolution of increasingly sophisticated electronics has offered the military unimaginable increases in processing power and functional capability. Consequently, avionics is now a major driver in air vehicle design, accounting for around 40% of the acquisition cost of a ... View full abstract»

  • Time-critical communication systems

    Publication Year: 1991, Page(s):35 - 42
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (740 KB)

    This article is concerned with shared-medium communication systems, primarily private systems for process-control plant and/or discrete parts manufacture. The particular systems in question are those two layers at the bottom of the CIM hierarchy, namely the 'field level' and 'station level'. These systems are often dubbed 'real time', or 'time critical' systems. The distinguishing features between... View full abstract»
