Sound System Engineering Third Edition is a complete revision and expansion of the former work. Written by two leading authorities in the field of audio engineering, this highly respected guide covers the fundamentals necessary for the understanding of today's systems as well as for those systems yet to come. The space formerly occupied by outdated photographs of manufacturers' product and of older system installations has now been filled with new measurements and discussions of the measurement process. The "Mathematics for Audio chapter has been expanded to include the mathematics of phasors. The "Interfacing Electrical and Acoustic Systems chapter has a completely new section covering the analysis of alternating current circuits. Additionally, system gain structure is now treated by both the available input power method and the voltage only method, complete with illustrations of each. All chapters dealing with loudspeaker directivity and coverage, the acoustic environment, room acoustics, speech intelligibility, and acoustic gain appear in up to date versions. In addition there is new material on signal delay and synchronization and equalization. There are completely new chapters on microphones, loudspeakers and loudspeaker arrays including line arrays with steering and beam-width control, and signal processing, both analog and digital. The book runs the gamut of sound system design from the simplest all-analog paging system to the largest multipurpose digital systems. In writing this third edition, the authors kept in mind the needs of sound system installers, sound system service technicians, and sound system designers. All three groups will find the material to be useful for everyday work as well as beneficial in the furtherance of their overall audio education.

Current IT developments like component-based development and Web services have emerged as effective ways of building complex enterprise-scale information systems and providing enterprise application integration. To aid this process, platforms such as .NET and WebSphere have become standards in web-based systems development. However, there are still a lot of issues that need to be addressed before service-oriented software engineering (SOSE) becomes a prominent and widely accepted paradigm for enterprise information systems development and integration. This book provides a comprehensive view of SOSE through a number of different perspectives. Some of those perspectives include: service-based concepts, modeling and documentation, service discovery and composition, service-oriented architecture, model-driven development of service-oriented applications, service security and service-orientation in mobile settings. The book provides readers with an in-depth knowledge of the main challenges and practices in the exciting, new world of service-oriented software engineering. Addressing both technical and organizational aspects of this new field, it offers a balance making it valuable to a variety of readers, including IT architects, developers, managers, and analysts.

Bei der Entwicklung komplexer Automatisierungssysteme sind immer umfangreichere Aufgaben von einer steigenden Anzahl miteinander kommunizierender Rechner zu lösen. Dazu bedarf es der Verwendung einer adäquaten Entwicklungsumgebung. Dieses Buch beschreibt die Ergebnisse des Verbundprojekts PROSYT, in dem unter Beteiligung von 18 Partnern aus Industrie und Wissenschaft eine Systementwicklungsumgebung zur Realisierung verteilbarer Realzeitsysteme entstand. Verschiedene (Software-)Werkzeuge unterschiedlicher Hersteller wurden syntaktisch und semantisch in Werkzeuglinien integriert, um den gesamten Systemlebenszyklus vom Requirement-Engineering bis zur Wartung mit einem integrierten System abzudecken. Das Entwicklungssystem PROSYT besteht aus einem offenen Rahmensystem, in das die Werkzeuge horizontal und vertikal integriert wurden. Das Rahmensystem enthält ein Dialogsystem (PRODIA), ein Nonstandard Datenbanksystem (PRODAT) und eine wissensbasierte Recherchenkomponente (Projekt-Advisor). Drei integrierte Werkzeuglinien (SARS-IGS-VICO-PEARL, EPOS-PRODOS-CAT-PRISE/PDAS und PASQUALE-PRODOS), die den gesamten Systemzyklus abdecken, zeigen die Nützlichkeit und Angemessenheit der Konzepte der Basissysteme sowie die Realisierbarkeit der Integration mit vertretbarem Aufwand von Werkzeugen unterschiedlicher Firmen. Das Buch wendet sich an Anwender von Softwarewerkzeugen, Entwickler von integrierten Werkzeugsystemen und von Rahmensystemen und potentielle Anwender wissensbasierter Methoden bei der Projektabwicklung.

Real-world engineering problems often require concurrent optimisation of several design objectives, which are conflicting in most of the cases. Such an optimisation is generally called multi-objective or multi-criterion optimisation. The area of research that applies evolutionary methodologies to multi-objective optimisation is of special and growing interest. It brings a solution to many yet-opened real-world problems and questions. Generally, multi-objective engineering problems have no single optimal design, but several solutions of equal efficiency allowing different trade-offs. The decision maker's preferences are normally used to select the most adequate design. Such preferences may be dictated before or after the optimisation takes place. They may also be introduced interactively at different levels of the optimisation process. Multi-objective optimisation methods can be subdivided into classical and evolutionary. The classical methods usually aim at a single solution while the evolutionary methods target a whole set of so-called Pareto-optimal solutions. The aim of this book is to provide a representation of the state-of-the-art of the evolutionary multi-objective optimisation research area and related new trends. Furthermore, it reports many innovative designs yielded by the application of such optimisation methods. The contents of the book are divided into two main parts: evolutionary multi-objective optimisation and evolutionary multi-objective designs.

Manufacturing Systems Engineering

A Unified Approach to Manufacturing Technology, Production Management and Industrial Economics

This second edition of the classic textbook has been written to provide a completely up-to-date text for students of mechanical, industrial, manufacturing and production engineering, and is an indispensable reference for professional industrial engineers and managers. In his outstanding book, Professor Katsundo Hitomi integrates three key themes into the text: * manufacturing technology * production management * industrial economics Manufacturing technology is concerned with the flow of materials from the acquisition of raw materials, through conversion in the workshop to the shipping of finished goods to the customer. Production management deals with the flow of information, by which the flow of materials is managed efficiently, through planning and control techniques. Industrial economics focuses on the flow of production costs, aiming to minimise these to facilitate competitive pricing. Professor Hitomi argues that the fundamental purpose of manufacturing is to create tangible goods, and it has a tradition dating back to the prehistoric toolmakers. The fundamental importance of manufacturing is that it facilitates basic existence, it creates wealth, and it contributes to human happiness - manufacturing matters. Nowadays we regard manufacturing as operating in these other contexts, beyond the technological. It is in this unique synthesis that Professor Hitomi's study constitutes a new discipline: manufacturing systems engineering - a system that will promote manufacturing excellence. Key Features: * The classic textbook in manufacturing engineering * Fully revised edition providing a modern introduction to manufacturing technology, production managment and industrial economics * Includes review questions and problems for the student reader

Swarm intelligence is an innovative computational way to solve hard problems. This discipline is inspired by the behaviour of social insect (e.g. ants, termites, bees and wasps) colonies as well as fish schools and bird flocks. The content of this book is divided into two main parts: ant colony optimisation and particle swarm optimisation. The former describes systems that have been engineered using ant colony optimisation and the latter presents systems that were designed based on particle swarm optimisation.
