    Higher performance requirements and increasing system complexity lead to an increasing requirement for the use of optimization methods in control system design. Their use ranges from the fine tuning of parameters to the minimization of specific criteria. A common criticism of optimization methods, such as the LQG and H-infinity approaches in control system design, is that the objectives do not ade... View full abstract»

    The decline of the UK's competitive position has been there for all to see. The cut and thrust and struggle for companies to survive has become a way of life. To close down a plant, once an anathema to business, has now become an acceptable course of action to follow based upon some corporate strategic decision. There is a lack of understanding and empathy by top management towards manufacturing a... View full abstract»

    Stochastic learning automata have been applied to a wide range of problems including image compression, relaxation labelling, real-time process control, multiprocessor scheduling and communications network routing and flow control. As with the present state of the art in neural networks there have been no shortage of potential applications buy many suggestions have been ill-conceived. The author s... View full abstract»

    Outlines the motivation, developments and achievements within ESPRIT project p820: Design and Experimentation of a Real-Time Knowledge Based System Toolkit for Process Control Applications. The project has developed a kernel of the toolkit, now called the QUIC Toolkit (QUalitative Industrial Control) and is being validated on three important demonstrator applications relevant to industrial control...

    To take a slightly simplified view, an object in a program is a variable that can be manipulated only by a prescribed set of procedures. Programs written in almost all programming languages can be designed around the notion of objects. Software engineers are interested in two questions about objects: which objects should be used in the construction of a given program; and what general principles c... View full abstract»

    A prototype system which allows a project network to be portrayed graphically as a CPA network on a high-resolution workstation. Initially, the project network is described, the system calculates the natural completion date of the project from standard CPA calculations. The user is then able to specify a target completion date. An algorithm then examines the network to identify all the activities ... View full abstract»
