    Software engineering has made significant contributions to 'engineering-in-the-large'. The nature of the software process has been researched, and computer-based tools and environments have been built to support this process. Other more established engineering disciplines, such as instrument design, have developed professional practices, mature mathematical frameworks for system modelling and acce... View full abstract»

    The article describes an approach to the design of object systems within a CIM environment. Current CIM systems are based on organisational decomposition, where software modules are developed to correspond to existing enterprise management structures. Using an object environment, enterprise resources can be presented as virtual models. This allows a functional decomposition, resulting in the requi... View full abstract»

  • Portable software for multiprocessor systems

    The authors describe Prelude, a programming language and accompanying system support for writing portable parallel programs for multiprocessor architectures. Prelude allows the programmer to separate the description of the computation to be performed by a program from the description of how that computation is to be mapped onto a machine. This makes it easier to tune the performance of a program o... View full abstract»

    Burning a fossil fuel produces heat and combustion residues. In a power generation plant boiler, for example, some of this heat is transferred from the furnace side, through the boiler tubes, into the water side. The heated water is converted into steam, which in turn drives the turbines and generators in order to produce electrical power. This process, and its inherent inefficiencies, is well und...

  • Automatic production of NC code for machining form features in generic parts

    Publication Year: 1992, Page(s):287 - 295

    A prototype system for CAPP (computer-aided process planning) and the automatic generation of NC code for machining form features in generic parts is described. By means of this system, it is possible to program and simulate all the operations involved in the production of a part. The planning of the production process starts with the solid model of the final part, the solid model of the blank, as... View full abstract»
