  • Entity-relationship modeling

    Publication Year: 1994, Page(s):29 - 34
    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (600 KB)

    The entity-relationship (ER) model and its accompanying ER diagrams are widely used for database design and systems analysis. Many books and articles just provide a definition of each modeling component and give examples of the pre-built ER diagrams. As a result, beginners in data modeling have a great deal of difficulty learning how to approach a given problem, what questions to ask in order to b... View full abstract»

  • Parallel processing

    Publication Year: 1994, Page(s):17 - 20

    Parallel processing is many problem solvers operating simultaneously or concurrently to reach a solution. A parallel processing computer system typically breaks down a big problem into many subproblems. It then solves it through close cooperation of a large number of interconnected processors. Parallel processing is the only way to overcome the limitation of traditional architectures. Following th... View full abstract»

    Information technology's growth has led to an obsession to provide better and more communication services than ever before. Computer communication networks are the latest manifestation of this obsession. Computer networks have been playing an increasingly larger role in our day to day activities. However, there is technology available that makes it possible for us to envision simultaneous transmis... View full abstract»

    In rule-based expert systems, knowledge is represented as rules. A rule-based system is one example of deductive reasoning. However, in tasks such as design, diagnosis, planning, management and assessment we often observe a different type of reasoning. An expert facing a new problem is usually reminded of similar situations, recalls their results and perhaps the reasoning. In other words, previous... View full abstract»

  • High conductivity copper

    Publication Year: 1994, Page(s):39 - 41
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (324 KB)

    A round for centuries, copper remains an important metallic element in the world today. Copper's high electrical and thermal conductivity as well as its excellent corrosion resistance makes it ideal for use in the electrical, electronics, telecommunication, and construction industries. Electrical and electronic applications already consume more than 50% of all copper and will probably place furthe... View full abstract»

  • Creative problem solving

    Publication Year: 1994, Page(s):4 - 9

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (864 KB)

    Problem solving, as commonly taught in schools, is an analytical or procedural approach. This approach almost exclusively employs left-brain thinking modes, is competitive, and relies on individual effort. However, creative problem solving is a framework that encourages whole-brain, iterative thinking in the most effective sequence; it is cooperative in nature and is most productive when done as a...

  • Nondestructive evaluation

    Publication Year: 1994, Page(s):35 - 38

    Nondestructive evaluation (NDE) is to materials what CAT (computerized axial tomography) scanning is to the human body-an attempt to look inside without opening it up. As in CAT scanning, modern NDE requires sophisticated mathematical software to perform its function. This is especially true with regard to quantitative NDE, wherein we attempt to quantify defects, that is, determine their size, loc... View full abstract»
