#### Implementation of a Flexible Manufacturing Protocol.

(1986)

This paper is concerned with the development and implementation of a flexible manufacturing protocol for automated machining. Of specific interest is the machining of prismatic parts in a flexible manufacturing cell. The ...

#### On the Prediction of Local Patterns in Cellular Automata.

(1986)

The class of deterministic one-dimensional cellular automata studied recently by Wolfram are considered. We represent a state of an automaton as a probability distribution of patterns of a fixed size. In this way information ...

#### Feedback Control for an Abstract Parabolic Equation.

(1986)

The abstract parabolic equation x = Ax (A sectionial) is marginally stable if the nullspace H_0 of A is non-trivial but e^(+A) is exponentially stable on a complement H_1. An example is u_t> = DELTA u with Neumann boundary ...

#### Integration of Network Analysis Systems with MRP in a Make-to- Order Manufacturing Environment.

(1986)

The unique requirements in a make-to-order manufacturing environment dealing with long lead time products cannot be satisfied by either MRP or Network Analysis systems alone, but necessitate a combination of features of ...

#### A Design Concept for Reliable Mobile Radio Networks with Frequency Hopping Signaling.

(1986)

The design of a packet radio network must reflect the operational requirements and environmental constraints to which it is subject. In this paper, we outline those features that distinguish the High Frequency (HF) Intra ...

#### Application of Goal Tree-Success Tree Model as the Knowledge- Base of Operator Advisory Systems.

(1986)

The most important portion of an expert system development is the articulation of knowledge by the expert and its satisfactory formulation in a suitable knowledge representation scheme for mechanization by a computer. A ...

#### System Level Fault Diagnosis: An Overview.

(1986)

Recent times have seen a rapid growth in the development of digital systems. The cost of the hardware has shown a remarkable decline allowing designers to build systems which are extremely complex. This in turn has resulted ...

#### Adaptive Policies for a System of Competing Queues I: Convergence Results for the Long-Run Average Cost.

(1986)

This paper considers a system of discrete-time queues competing for the attention of a single geometric server. The problem of implementing a given Markov stationary service allocation policy g through an adaptive allocation ...

#### Integration of Engineering Systems.

(1986)

Systems integration is recognized as a key to improving efficiency and productivity in an engineering and manufacturing environment. The ultimate goal is to provide engineering management with improved systems efficiency, ...

#### Computer Integrated Manufacturing: Overview and Suggested Strategy.

(1986)

The relatively new area of manufacturing technology referred to as Computer Integrated Manufacturing (CIM) is defined and explored In terms of its current status and future potential. The various components of CIM are ...
