'Introduction to software engineering design' emphasizes design practice at an introductory level using object-oriented analysis and design techniques and UML 2.0. Readers will learn to use best practices in software design and development. Pedagogical features include learning objectives and orientation diagrams, summaries of key concepts, end-of-section quizzes, a large running case study, team projects, over 400 end-of-chapter exercises, and a glossary of key terms. This text covers all aspects of software design in four parts - Part I introduces the discipline of design, generic design processes, and design management; Part II covers software product design, including analysis activities such as needs elicitation and documentation, requirements development activities such as requirements specification and validation, prototyping, and use case modeling; Part III coversengineering design analysis, including conceptual modeling and both architectural and detailed design; Part IV surveys patterns in software design, including architectural styles and common mid-level design patterns.
This book has been created on the basis of contributions to the 54th International Conference of Machine Design Departments that was held for the 60th anniversary of Technical University of Liberec. This international conference which follows a tradition going back more than 50 years is one of the longest-running series of conferences held in central Europe, dealing with methods and applications in machine design. The main aim of the conference was to provide an international forum where experts, researchers, engineers and industrial practitioners, managers and Ph.D. students could meet, share their experiences and present the results of their efforts in the broad field of machine design and related fields. The book has seven chapters which focus on new knowledge of machine design, optimization, tribology, experimental methods and measuring, engineering analyses and product innovation. Authors presented new design methods of machine parts and more complex assemblies with the help of numerical methods such as FEM. Research, measurements and studies of new materials, including composites for energy-efficient constructions are also described. The book also includes solutions and results useful for optimization and innovation of complex design problems in various industries.
Architects often employ design methods to help them find more creative forms. These methods make it possible to break free of the traditional canon of forms and established paradigms. At the same time, there must be enough leeway for a functional, systematic design conception to take shape. This volume focuses in depth on the design methods that have decisively shaped current architectural practice. Themes are - Diagrammatic methods (using drawings and schematic representations), -Mimetic methods (imitative), - Parametric methods (using a characteristic quantity), - Automated and digital design methods of the contemporary avant-garde, e.g. scaling, datascapes, folding, and morphing.
Research Methods in Human-Computer Interaction is a comprehensive guide to performing research and is essential reading for both quantitative and qualitative methods. Since the first edition was published in 2009, the book has been adopted for use at leading universities around the world, including Harvard University, Carnegie-Mellon University, the University of Washington, the University of Toronto, HiOA (Norway), KTH (Sweden), Tel Aviv University (Israel), and many others. Chapters cover a broad range of topics relevant to the collection and analysis of HCI data, going beyond experimental design and surveys, to cover ethnography, diaries, physiological measurements, case studies, crowdsourcing, and other essential elements in the well-informed HCI researcher's toolkit. Continual technological evolution has led to an explosion of new techniques and a need for this updated 2nd edition, to reflect the most recent research in the field and newer trends in research methodology. This Research Methods in HCI revision contains updates throughout, including more detail on statistical tests, coding qualitative data, and data collection via mobile devices and sensors. Other new material covers performing research with children, older adults, and people with cognitive impairments. Comprehensive and updated guide to the latest research methodologies and approaches, and now available in EPUB3 format (choose any of the ePub or Mobi formats after purchase of the eBook). Expanded discussions of online datasets, crowdsourcing, statistical tests, coding qualitative data, laws and regulations relating to the use of human participants, and data collection via mobile devices and sensors New material on performing research with children, older adults, and people with cognitive impairments, two new case studies from Google and Yahoo!, and techniques for expanding the influence of your research to reach non-researcher audiences, including software developers and policymakers
Proceedings of the 7th Annual European Computer Conference (CompEuro 93), held in Paris, May 1993. The papers are organized into four tracks, each track being divided into several homogeneous sessions: automated manufacturing systems (modeling, maintenance, production system design and control, planning and scheduling); CAD/CAM (automated process planning, CAD, simulation and structured documentation, object oriented approach); machine control (inspection and vision systems, robot and process controllers, design of control systems, real time, motion planning and process control); and integration (flexible manufacturing systems, manufacturing database, information system and EDI, industrial networks).

This book is the first to bring together the techniques of object modelling, advanced software engineering and simulation modelling in a comprehensive guide for students and professionals. By offering an introduction to simulation and state-of-the-art object model concepts, it enables readers to master modelling techniques which meet the challenges inherent in the design and utilization of complex software systems. Following an extensive study of the major object-oriented analysis and design techniques, David Hill shows how a modelling method adapted to simulation can be translated to industrial and research applications. It illustrates how to generate automatic simulation code for the simulation and animation of manufacturing systems, and thus is the only text to provide object-oriented code generation techniques and present the design of a simulation animation builder. Finally, the book includes detailed appendices on simulation languages and an introduction to the C++ programming language.
As a reference guide to designing for ADA and other international and American standards, this guide covers accessibilty for the disabled, elderly and children and encompasses vision, touch, hearing and motor impairment.
Information Systems Analysis and Design presents essential knowledge about management information systems development, while providing a good balance between the core concepts and secondary concepts. It is intended for four-year university/college students who study information systems analysis and design. Students will learn the information systems development strategies, the systems acquisition approach to information systems development, and the process of information systems development. The book highlights the most important methods for information systems acquisition development, such as process modeling and systems acquisition design. To maintain a well-rounded approach to the topic, both fundamental knowledge about information systems development and hands-on material are presented. Succinct tutorials for professional systems development projects are also included.
