Intentional Perspectives on Information Systems Engineering by Michel Léonard (auth.), Selmin Nurcan, Camille Salinesi,

By Michel Léonard (auth.), Selmin Nurcan, Camille Salinesi, Carine Souveyet, Jolita Ralyté (eds.)

Requirements engineering has lengthy stated the significance of the proposal that procedure standards are stakeholder ambitions – instead of procedure features – and must be elicited, modeled and analyzed hence.

during this ebook, Nurcan and her coeditors have amassed 20 contributions from best researchers in info structures engineering, offering a accomplished evaluate of today’s diverse views at the thought of goal within the info structures neighborhood. those unique papers honor Colette Rolland for her contributions to this box – she used to be most likely the 1st to stress that ‘intention’ should be regarded as a first class thought in info structures engineering. Written through long term collaborators – and customarily neighbors – of Colette Rolland, this quantity covers issues like goal-oriented specifications engineering, model-driven improvement, technique engineering, and company modeling.

As such, it's a travel d’horizon of Colette Rolland’s lifework, and it was once offered to her at the celebration of her retirement at CAiSE 2010 in Hammamet, the convention that she cofounded after which nurtured and supported for over 20 years.

A detailed approach to model transport, heterogeneous chemistry, and electrochemistry in solid-oxide fuel cells

This e-book lays out a numerical framework for the designated description of heterogeneous chemistry, electrochemistry and porous media shipping in solid-oxide gasoline cells (SOFC). Assuming hydrogen because the simply electrochemically energetic species, a transformed Butler-Volmer equation is used to version the electrochemical cost move.

Advanced Information Systems Engineering: 8th International Conference, CAiSE'96 Heraklion, Crete, Greece, May 20–24, 1996 Proceedings

This booklet provides the refereed lawsuits of the eighth foreign convention on complex details structures Engineering, CAiSE '96, held in Herakleion, Crete, Greece, in may possibly 1996. The 30 revised complete papers incorporated within the publication have been chosen from a complete of a few a hundred submissions. The publication is organised in sections on CASE environments, temporal and energetic database applied sciences, adventure reviews, interoperability in info structures, formal tools in method improvement, novel architectures, workflow administration and disbursed details structures, details modelling, object-oriented database layout, and semantic hyperlinks and abstraction.

Engineering Turbulence Modelling and Experiments 5

Turbulence is among the key matters in tackling engineering movement difficulties. As robust pcs and actual numerical equipment at the moment are on hand for fixing the movement equations, and because engineering purposes almost always contain turbulence results, the reliability of CFD research relies more and more at the functionality of the turbulence versions.

Two visions are possible (perhaps more): one is to consider that services are upon IS; the second is to consider that in the future IS will be composed only of services. But, one question will still emerge: how to integrate a new service into an existing IS [5, 6]? This is a rather short and incomplete presentation of the concept of service, coming from the IS domain. Numerous disciplines will be interested by this concept, which can be defined more broadly, for instance: “the application of competences for the benefit of another, meaning that service is a kind of action, performance or promise that is exchanged for value between provider and client” [32].

In spite of this there is widespread concern that the methodological basis for building sustainable computerized information systems is too weak. The dissatisfaction comes both from within the IT-profession and from the user side, both from those who engineer the systems and from those who pay the bill for failed projects. The IT-profession is not satisfied with itself. , from software engineering [47]. Much of the dissatisfaction is due to the profound technological changes of the last 10–20 years.

To make sense out of messages, be they uttered in language or as numbers, the messages must be related to a model of what the messages are about. This model of “the real world” must be shared among the communicating parties if misunderstandings are to be avoided. Computer systems will break down if the various digital components do not share a common model of “reality” and a common model of data representation. People may be able to discover misunderstandings prior to a system breakdown and to take corrective actions, computers cannot.
