    Capital-intensive companies and organizations that purchase long-life industrial equipment, such as the transit agencies and railroad companies, often have language in their procurement specifications that define the useful life of the equipment and the necessary tools and equipment to maintain their defined life-cycle. However, if the organization is not structured around life-cycle maintenance then these long-term objectives will surely become just an unrealistic hope. View full abstract»

    Many activities in today's organizations are becoming ever more dependent on communications and computer networks, and network managers are faced with the enormous challenge of increasing the availability and efficiency of their infrastructures, which grow both in size and complexity. This makes it crucial to plan network operation systematically, to define and implement appropriate procedures for regular monitoring and performance assessment, and to set up proper tools for maintenance and troubleshooting purposes. Furthermore, proactive network testing must be pursued; it is vital to gather some ideas of normal network operation documented in order to have a comparison term when problems occur. The article has dealt with the measurement instruments and procedures currently adopted for network testing and advances in the field for the I&M research community. View full abstract»

    In this part of the tutorial, the author takes up the mathematical end of control theory in earnest. The author presents the elements of both analysis and design of linear continuous-time systems with feedback, but before dealing with these issues he discusses what is probably the single most important notion in control theory-stability.
