Identifying variability key characteristics for automation design - A case study of finishing process

Sanchez-Salas, Angel; Goh, Yee Mey; Case, Keith // 2017
This paper describes an investigation of human interaction with process ‎variability (i.e. variability not introduced by the humans themselves) in a manual manufacturing process. The process studied ...

Integrated process and data model for applying scenario-technique in requirements engineering

Graessler, Iris; Scholle, Philipp; Pottebaum, Jens // 2017
Originating from strategic management, scenario-technique yields potentials for requirements engineering. In this paper an integrated process model for such an application of scenario-technique is ...

Large-scale engineering prototyping - Approaching complex engineering problems CERN-style

Gerstenberg, Achim; Steinert, Martin // 2017
During the early concept creation phase of complex engineering problems with high degrees of uncertainty the design requirements are mostly unknown. Therefore, modules, usually used in manufacturing, ...

Lean assessment and transformation strategies in product development: a longitudinal study

Welo, Torgeir; Ringen, Geir // 2017
Maintaining simultaneous focus on efficiency and effectiveness is a difficult yet necessary strategy to deliver commercially viable products in today’s global world of competition. As a result, ...

Maturity of models in a multi-model decision support system

Johansson, Christian; Wall, Johan; Panarotto, Massimo // 2017
To reduce uncertainty in decisions, engineers experiment with models, such as, exploring what-if scenarios, and thus increase knowledge. Still, because modelling is an idealisation of reality, there ...

Boolean Searches

The following examples demonstrate some search strings that use boolean operators:

  • design community
    Find rows that contain at least one of the two words.
  • +design +community
    Find rows that contain both words.
  • +design community
    Find rows that contain the word “design”, but rank rows higher if they also contain “community”.
  • +design -community
    Find rows that contain the word “design” but not “community”.
  • +design ~community
    Find rows that contain the word “design”, but if the row also contains the word “community”, rate it lower than if row does not.
  • +design +(>community <decisions)
    Find rows that contain the words “design” and “community”, or “design” and “decisions” (in any order), but rank “design community” higher than “design decisions”
  • design*
    Find rows that contain words such as “design”, “designs”, “designing”, or “designer”.
  • "some words"
    Find rows that contain the exact phrase “some words” (for example, rows that contain “some words of wisdom” but not “some noise words”). Note that the " characters that enclose the phrase are operator characters that delimit the phrase. They are not the quotation marks that enclose the search string itself.
