The superconducting magnets of the ITER fusion reactor will be excited with high voltage during fast discharge. Especially fast voltage excitations of these large magnets can lead to high local electrical stresses caused by a non linear voltage distribution or oscillations within a coil. Investigation of the dielectric properties of the ITER model coils delivered valuable experience for the specification ...

Strategies for integrating CASE environments

[{u'author_order': 1, u'affiliation': u'Tech. Univ., Aachen, Germany', u'full_name': u'M. Jarke'}] IEEE Software, 1992

An experimental information-system environment, called DAIDA (development assistance for integrated database applications), developed as part of the European Community's ESPRIT program is described. DAIDA goes beyond traditional knowledge-based techniques for CASE by addressing three important dimensions of integration in a process-oriented model: how to handle dependencies among development stages, how to manage the evolving relationship among systems and their technical ...

This paper proposes a link bandwidth design method considering failures in an IP network. When we design the link bandwidth, we need to consider rerouted traffic's bandwidth by failures in order to avoid the traffic congestion. If we knew the point-to-point traffic matrix, we could easily obtain the required link bandwidth after failures. However, the support in routers for measuring ...

A microwave power sensor could measure the power levels ranging from 20 dBm to -70 dBm. The linearity is an important specification for accurate power measurements. The estimate of the linearity accuracy of power sensors is well- developed and studied. There are only limited papers and discussions on the validation of the power level linearity. In this report, we are ...

  • Organization for Assuring Software Quality

    This chapter looks at the quality assurance organization. It focuses on mangers of the various levels, from top management to development, and maintenance team leaders. The chapter discusses the three levels of management found in many software development organizations and the software quality assurance (SQA) function. Three levels of management are top management level, department managers' level and project managers and team leaders. The chapter summarizes the top management which is committed to software quality management requirements. The departments' management quality assurance responsibilities include responsibilities for quality activities related to the department and infrastructure services. The chapter presents the SQA unit and its associated players of the major SQA system. The SQA system major party is the SQA function/team. Additional players in the SQA system also include, beside the SQA unit professionals, interested practitioners found among the software development and maintenance staff.

It discusses the components involved in SQA process implementation: establishing SQA processes and their coordination with related software processes; SQA plan (SQAP) and project plan; preproject process; and cost of software quality. The chapter then focuses on product and process assurance activities aimed at evaluating the conformance of software products and processes and related documentation to contract requirements and relevant regulations and conventions. In addition, the three additional tools and methods that support development teams in their efforts to ensure the quality of their software processes and software products are discussed: templates and checklists; configuration management; and CASE tools and IDEs. Finally, the chapter presents basic software quality and software engineering topics that are closely related to SQA.

  • Software Testing

    This chapter focuses on the operative characteristics of software testing. The software testing process includes determining software testing strategies and requirement‐driven software testing. The chapter explains the designing and implementation of the testing process. Automated test management software packages provide features applicable for manual testing together with automated testing. Shortened test duration, cost savings and improvements in test management and control processes are the factors that have motivated the development of test automation tools. An analysis of the characteristics of alpha and beta site tests reveals that in no case they should replace the formal software tests performed by the developer. Specialized software packages for code reviews and document reviews can perform a portion of the qualification tests by listing cases of nonconformity to coding standards, procedures, and work instructions.
