Remotely Possible? Simple Remote Access To The Network, Margaret Sylvia Oct 1996

Remotely Possible? Simple Remote Access To The Network, Margaret Sylvia

Margaret Sylvia

Remote access to the library is possible without a magic wand. we have seen increased use of the library in recent years, either because of, or despite, the possibility of remote access. One reason may be that some full-text material is still only available inside the library. Remote access was first implemented in the St. Mary's University Academic Library in 1991, shortly after the installation of the first network in the library. Various options for remote access are compared and contrasted, including the EA/2 solution.

Unified Process Specification Language: Requirements For Modeling Process, Craig Schlenoff, Amy Knutilla, Steven Ray Aug 1996

Unified Process Specification Language: Requirements For Modeling Process, Craig Schlenoff, Amy Knutilla, Steven Ray

Steven R Ray

A wide range of applications deal with the manipulation and expression of collections of activities. Examples include project management, workflow management, business process reengineering, product realization process modeling, manufacturing process planning, production scheduling, simulation, and Computer Aided Software Engineering, each of which is supported by some combination of graphical programming and control languages, Petri nets, PERT charts or other representation methodology. Each of these applications serves a specific audience and need, and focuses on particular aspects of a process. Nevertheless, much could be gained by sharing information among applications. One of the primary obstacles to such integration is the lack ...


An Architecture Of Component - Based Capp Systems For Agile Manufacturing, Chun Zhang, Shaw Feng, Steven Ray Jan 1996

An Architecture Of Component - Based Capp Systems For Agile Manufacturing, Chun Zhang, Shaw Feng, Steven Ray

Steven R Ray

The current manufacturing planning software systems (such as computer aided process planning (CAPP) systems) are general and in a closed form, i.e., it is very difficult to modify these systems to respond to a user's dynamically changing needs. These systems are no longer suitable for agile manufacturing. This research work aims at developing an architecture for rapid development of CAPP systems. The architecture supports the construction of CAPP systems from prepackaged, plug-compatible software components. The specifications of the architecture and its building blocks are defined. A prototype system is under development to prove the concept.

An Application Of Plausible Reasoning To Information Retrieval, Farhad Oroumchian, Robert Oddy Dec 1995

An Application Of Plausible Reasoning To Information Retrieval, Farhad Oroumchian, Robert Oddy

Robert Oddy

This work explores the use of plausible inferences as a means of retrieving relevant documents. Collins and Michalski’s theory of plausible reasoning has been modified to accommodate information retrieval. Methods are proposed to represent document contents by logical terms and statements, and queries by incomplete logical statements. Extensions to plausible inferences are discussed. Two versions of the extended plausible reasoning system were implemented, one using dominance weights (described in the paper) and the other using tf. Idf (Term Frequency Inverse Document Frequency) weights. Experiments were conducted using the titles and abstracts of the CACM collection and it was found ...
