    Every action a business process performs must be explicitly anticipated, designed for, and implemented by business professionals. The business process is dependent upon business rules (BRs) to achieve its objectives, which also involve pre- and post-conditions in the business process (BP). Most of the current techniques implement these rules directly into BPs. This will result in the BP becoming e... View full abstract»

    Optimal control and management of power systems require extensive analyses of phenomena that can compromise their operation in order to evaluate their impact on the security and reliability levels of the electrical networks. For complex networks, this process, known as power systems contingencies analysis, requires large computational efforts, whereas computation times should be less than a few mi... View full abstract»

    In this paper, a data-mining approach is applied to optimize combustion efficiency of a coal-fired boiler. The combustion process is complex, nonlinear, and nonstationary. A virtual testing procedure is developed to validate the results produced by the optimization methods. The developed procedure quantifies improvements in the combustion efficiency without performing live testing, which is expens... View full abstract»

  • Applying and adapting the IEC 61346 standard to industrial automation applications

    Publication Year: 2006, Page(s):185 - 191

    The IEC 61346 standard describes a reference designation system for identifying the objects and structuring the information of virtually any kind of technical system. The generality of the standard leads in some cases to a slightly loose definition of its concepts, which can hamper its applicability to a concrete domain. Our aim is to make the IEC 61346 standard suitable for the construction of re... View full abstract»

    The time-triggered approach is a well-suited approach for building distributed hard real-time systems. Since many applications of transducer networks have real-time requirements, a time-triggered communication interface for smart transducers is desirable; however, such a time-triggered interface must still support features for monitoring, maintenance, plug-and-play, etc. The approach of the Object...

    The defect detection on manufactures is extremely important in the optimization of industrial processes; particularly, the visual inspection plays a fundamental role. The visual inspection is often carried out by a human expert. However, new technology features have made this inspection unreliable. For this reason, many researchers have been engaged to develop automatic analysis processes of manuf... View full abstract»
