With the advent of potent network technology, software/system engineering has evolved from a traditional platform-centric focus into a network-centric paradigm where the 'system of systems' perspective has been the norm. Under this paradigm, architecting has become a critical process in the life cycle of software/system engineering. The need for a structured description of the architecting process is undeniable. This paper fulfils that need and provides a structured description of the process of architecting a software-based network-centric system of systems. The architecting process is described using a set of goals that are specific to architecting, and the associated specific practices that enable the realisation of these goals. The architecting process description presented herein is intended to guide the software/system architects.

Thoroughly modern installers keep on industry trend
The ErP Directive, through its various iterations since 2009, not only places high demands on the efficiency levels of a wide range of heating products, and especially hot water storage in our homes, but also on installers to communicate the benefits of greater energy efficiency to their customers. If the target to reduce energy use by 20% by 2020 is remotely realistic, not only has product design got to be improved in such areas as switching, power consumption and motor technology, but consumer behaviour has got...

CDMF–RELSUS concept: reliable products are sustainable products - influences on product design, ...
Based on the customer's product recognition, sustainability and environmental protection become key sales arguments within the automotive industry. The customer expects reduced resource consumptions, environmental friendly manufacturing and a long usage phase. Especially product reliability saves resources in many ways. Manufacturer product reliability is associated with higher development and production costs, but, especially in industries with high innovation rates, customer usage is limited to the product...
Making manufacturing more sustainable - Subcommittee E60.13 lays groundwork for standards
A new ASTM International subcommittee has begun work on standards that address sustainable manufacturing. Sometimes zero is not zero. Case in point: Manufacturer X sends no byproducts or waste to landfills or to incinerators. Manufacturer Y doesn’t dump waste in landfills, yet it does opt to burn refuse for energy. Both claim they have “zero landfill” programs. Which one is correct? Until recently, there were no standards under way to determine what zero actually was. Enter new ASTM Internation...
