  • Object-oriented analysis of a flexible batch production system

    Publication Year: 1993, Page(s):233 - 238
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (874 KB)

    The object-oriented analysis (OOA) of a problem frequently encountered in control engineering is described: the automated control of a flexible production plant. The advantages of flexible production are explained and the choice of OOA as an approach is outlined. Using a simple example, readily generalisable to a wide range of cases, the steps of the analysis are described and illustrated. An exte... View full abstract»

    For over 100 years, comfort in road vehicles has been linked to the introduction of passive components that isolate passenger compartments from mechanical vibration. Near-optimal performance has been achieved by years of experimentation and testing, careful selection and shaping of individual component characteristics, and the development of ingenious mechanisms intended to minimise the effect of ...

  • Development of a stereolithography preprocessor for model verification

    Publication Year: 1993, Page(s):218 - 224

    An overview of the development of a stereolithography preprocessor for constructing wire frame images for model verifications is presented. Based on the data representation in stereolithography files, the preprocessor is designed to consist of four subsystems-data input in both ASCII and binary format, wire frame images construction, interactive verifications and data output in both ASCII and bina...

  • System dynamics- background, methodology and applications. 1. Background and methodology

    Publication Year: 1993, Page(s):201 - 208
    Cited by:  Papers (2)

    System dynamics is a methodology for modelling and redesign of manufacturing, business, and similar systems which are part man, part machine. It has been around for over 30 years. Some management consultants make extensive use of system dynamics, whilst others do not. Why is this so, and is it primarily an educational problem? The author describes the methodology, traces its history, and shows how... View full abstract»

  • Computerised Parkinson's Law

    Publication Year: 1993, Page(s):197 - 198
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (233 KB)

    Cyril Northcote Parkinson, 1909-1993, coined the phrase 'Parkinson's Law' in an article published by the Economist in 1958: work expands to fill the time available for its completion. Parkinson collected his aphorisms and published them in a book. This article argues, as recent events show, that work expands so as to fill the computers available and then overflows. But it needn't!.<> View full abstract»

  • Adapting decorative patterns for ceramic tableware

    Publication Year: 1993, Page(s):209 - 217
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (544 KB)

    The advent of three-dimensional computer graphics has allowed the use of the computer as a powerful tool to design and produce the patterns used to decorate ceramic dinnerware. The authors describe the special computer programmes which have been developed to adapt decorative patterns into different variations of size and shape of dinnerware. Geometrically, this means that these adapted patterns ca... View full abstract»
