  • It’s time the transportation industry starts talking about voice-activated devices

    Eighty-seven years ago a self-taught radio engineer named Bill Lear and a colleague, Howard Gates, created a prototype radio that would work inside an automobile. In doing so, they triggered not just an automotive advance but a whole new and still immensely popular “thing” in American motoring and, indeed, in American culture: cruising down the highway, windows down, radio blaring. ...

  • System of systems analytic hierarchy and stochastic optimisation design

    A formulated methodology of developing the system of systems analytical hierarchy and optimisation flow order is presented. The design problem is modelled as a multi-level hierarchical optimisation problem. The multi-levels such as, super system level, system level and subsystem level are defined. Based on the idea of system of systems, each system performance criteria can be decomposed into ...

  • Perspective 2 of the SoSE methodology: designing the unique methodology

    The second perspective in the SoSE methodology is to design the unique methodology to address the system of systems problem. Following from the first perspective which frames the situation, the approach to guide investigation of the problem, or unique methodology, must be established. Every system of systems problem is unique and therefore must have an approach that appreciates that uniqueness. ...

  • Equational zero vector databases, non-equational databases, and inherent internal control

    Equational zero vector accounting systems, based on duality principles and the double-entry model, were designed as ontological control systems to help prevent and detect fraud and errors inherent in non-equational, single-entry systems. Non-equational systems lend themselves to fraud and errors to a larger degree because the internal control inherent in an equational zero vector system has no ...

  • Global ethics in the light of Islamic Political Economy

    A theory of Islamic Political Economy is deduced from the Qur'an. Islamic Political Economy is shown to be an interactive, integrative and evolutionary system that endogenously combines moral attributes with knowledge formation. All of these are premised on the Episteme of the Oneness of God, bringing out its epistemological role in the construction of relations in world-systems. The attributes ...

  • Community structure and stability analysis for intraguild interactions among host, parasitoid, and predator

    Intraguild predation (IGP) occurs when one species preys on a competitor species that shares a common resource. Modifying a prey–predator model with prey infection, we propose a model of IG interactions among host, parasitoid, and predator, in which the predator eats parasitized and unparasitized hosts, and the adult parasitoid density is explicitly expressed. Parameter dependences of community ...

  • Reallocation of system mass and stiffness for achieving target specifications using a superelement/substructuring methodology

    Optimisation of models using desired targets is typically performed at the system level and result from the individual component dynamic characteristics. Optimisation can be performed when the component and system topology is defined. Previous work utilised Analytical Model Improvement techniques along with Localisation of Model Change procedures to determine the component target characteristics. ...

  • Systems engineering education for public policy

    Developments in public policy create new challenges for engineering and engineering education. Analytic and synthetic skills are required to handle the substantive complexities of policy problems, and managerial skills are necessary to design and guide the human interaction processes needed for knowledge integration, multi-party learning and negotiation, and decision-making. The resulting ...

  • Employing analytic tools in large-scale engineering public policy-making

    This paper examines the interactions of analytic approaches and policy-making for large-scale engineering projects. It is thereby argued that the efficiency of policy-making can be increased if a fruitful synergy between analytical decision analysis and political opinion forming can be achieved and nourished along the whole policy-making life cycle. The discussion is built around the NEAT rail ...
