Automated modular file-based distributed configuration management for Unix servers of heterogeneous applications

Proceedings of the IEEE Third International Workshop on Systems Management, 1998

We describe a project to develop a configuration management solution that will allow several heterogeneous applications to access standardized common and operating system functionality in a Unix environment. The configuration requirements from several applications can be integrated on a single host. A file-based API to common functions allows applications to be modular and portable across Unix-like operating system flavors.

  • Dynamic Software Product Lines

    Economies of scope imply mass customization, which can be defined as producing goods and services to meet individual customers' needs with near mass production efficiency. Product line engineering (PLE) provides a means of customizing variants of mass–produced products. Its key aim is to create an underlying architecture for an organization's product platform in which core assets can be reused to engineer new products from the basic family. Developers have successfully applied software product lines (SPLs) in many different domains – including avionics, medical devices, and information systems – in a wide variety of organizations. In addition, modern computing and network environments demand a higher degree of adaptability from their software systems. Computing environments, user requirements, and interface mechanisms between software and hardware devices, such as sensors, can change dynamically during runtime. In dynamic software product lines (DSPLs), monitoring the current situation and controlling the adaptation are the central tasks

  • Low cost X-band power amplifier MMIC

The stepper-based volume 0.5 micron and 0.25 micron GaAs pHEMT processes utilize 4 inter-level metallisation and four dielectric layers for high frequency performance whilst maintaining the economies of scale of 150mm (6") diameter substrates. The fabricated GaAs X-Band PA MMICs exhibit SW to low NY output power under pulsed conditions; 16dB of power gain and power added efficiencies approaching 40%. Excellent repeatability and high yields over a number of wafers have been demonstrated. The design and GaAs process approach taken here with DUV stepper and 150 mm wafer diameter will lead to a significant cost reduction for high performance power amplifier MMICs up to 30GHz.

  • Realization of strong ports and shipping services in developing countries using multi-criteria selection algorithm

    Trade is growing as a proportion of world GDP and this was obvious during the financial crises during the year of 2008. Governments and international organizations gave a higher priority to improving ports and shipping services. This leads to deregulation, which, together with technological advances, increases the incentives for shipping companies to form alliances and to merge. Another cause of the process of developing countries to reevaluate the situation is technological change, which has led to an increase of fixed costs as a proportion of total average costs. This leads to larger optimum unit sizes of vessels, ports, and companies, which in turn reduces the number of participants in the long-term market equilibrium. To analyze the impacts of these trends, the paper examines the use of multi-criteria selection mechanism to achieve economies of scale in ports of developing countries. The criteria are based on declines in liner shipping companies' profits; the danger of overcapacity; fluctuations in freight-rates; the strength of alliances; ports as transshipment centers; options for small liner operators; benefits for importers, exporters and consumers; and the implications for regulatory bodies.

  • A 50 W Ka-Band Solid-State Power Amplifier and Upconverter for Transportable and Platform-Mount SATCOM Systems

    This paper describes the performance of an L-to-Ka-band upconverter for satellite communications. This upconverter uses spatially combined grid amplifier modules to achieve 50 W saturated output power, while meeting linearity requirements for third-order intermodulation, AM/PM conversion, and spectral regrowth at 25 W output. The production unit is packaged in a compact rugged outdoor enclosure that weighs only 32 pounds. The unit's size and efficiency allow it to be mounted very near the feed on truck or trailer systems, thereby eliminating cumbersome long waveguide runs. Furthermore, this solid-state unit maintains the potential for high-volume production, thereby lowering cost through economies of scale

  • The future of SAPP, WAPP, CAPP, and EAPP

    Vital new transmission lines are high on the agenda of energy planners in the various regions of Africa. These lines are identified within the power pools of Southern Africa and West Africa. The new Central Africa power pool is in the process of identifying these lines as also is the East Africa region. What are the economic gains from these new lines and what are the plans for a continent wide network? The power pool modeling at Purdue University is helping utilities across Africa to answer these questions. This paper outlines some of the transmission modeling issues that are being considered at Purdue and with colleagues across Africa.

  • The DER Revolution and Right Sizing of Energy Resources

    Small, distributed resources provide benefits to both utilities and end users, and installation of these resources continues to grow in number. Small generators located at or near the loads they serve have the technical and economic advantage over large remote plants when siting, construction time, reliability, and operational flexibility are considered. Among these advantages include avoidance of significant grid construction and maintenance costs and improvements to utility grid performance. This presentation starts with a historical look at the evolution of steam turbine power stations from local, neighborhood-scale generators into huge, remote power plants in the 1960s. It also discusses the technical and economic impacts of DER on the existing grid infrastructure
