This paper presents two mixed-reality (MR) environments that provide alternative mediums that allow groups of people to share the same work and communication space in face-to-face and remote manners. Two experiments were executed to test the capabilities of the two MR systems in realistic environment and collaborative tasks against prevalent methods. Results indicated that the two MR systems signi... View full abstract»
Modeling Co-construction Processes in a Socio-Technical Framework to Support Collaborative Engineering DesignPublication Year: 2011, Page(s):297 - 305
Cited by: Papers (4)
In this paper, we have described a co-construction process model, in the context of a socio-technical framework, to support the collaborative engineering design. This paper has reviewed our previous work in building a co-construction model on the conceptual, logical, and analytical layers and then proposed an expanded Petri net representation that is developed toward a more comprehensive and opera...

Engineering asset management (EAM) is a broad discipline and the EAM functions and processes are characterized by its distributed nature. However, engineering asset nowadays mostly relies on self-maintained experiential rule bases and periodic maintenance, which is lacking a collaborative engineering approach. This research proposes a collaborative environment integrated by a service center with d... View full abstract»

This paper describes an analytic and synthetic new service development (NSD) method for devising collaborative service systems (CSSs). The predominant NSD method is a process-based one that belongs to the well-established service blueprints approach in order to create flexible flowchart-like models of customer-provider interaction flows. In contrast to the static service blueprints approach, the p... View full abstract»

As the applications of wireless sensor networks continue to expand, it is important to support fast and simultaneous data aggregation over multiple regions for advanced data analysis. In this paper, we propose a solution by using a novel distributed data structure called distributed data cube (DDC). A DDC maintains a set of special forms of aggregate values (prefix sum, prefix average, prefix max,... View full abstract»

Effective engineering-change management (ECM) is a real challenge in mechanical engineering industry and manufacturing companies. Computer-aided design systems are usually connected to other systems such as ERP or product data management, but currently this integration does not provide effective means to manage engineering change (EC). While communication between multidisciplinary teams working on... View full abstract»

Positioning multiple sensors for acquisition of a given environment is one of the fundamental research areas in various fields, such as military scouting, computer vision, and robotics. In this paper, we propose a new model for the problem of sensor deployment. Deploying and configuring a set of given sensors on a synthetically generated 3-D terrain have multiple objectives on conflicting attribut... View full abstract»

This paper analyzes exception handling in business process management (BPM) with a major focus on resilience, i.e., the capability to maintain operations under a wide spectrum of potential breakdowns. The research highlights the need to support various types of exceptions, including expected, planned, unexpected, and true exceptions. The developed support contemplates the vital human involvement i... View full abstract»

This paper addresses a detailed procedure to generate an optimal satellite antenna profile. The goal of antenna profile is to provide a sequence of commands for antenna movements such that the antenna directs as many ground station as possible under some constraints. The main task in generating the antenna profile is to schedule the antenna movements taking account of satellite orbit and attitude ... View full abstract»
A Multifaceted Approach to Modeling Agent Trust for Effective Communication in the Application of Mobile Ad Hoc Vehicular NetworksPublication Year: 2011, Page(s):407 - 420
Cited by: Papers (27)
An increasingly large number of cars are being equipped with global positioning system and Wi-Fi devices, enabling vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communication with the goal of providing increased passenger and road safety. This technology actuates the need for agents that assist users by intelligently processing the received information. Some of these agents might become self-interested and try to maxi...
