Multidisciplinary Approaches to Service-Oriented Engineering is a well-rounded collection of research that examines methods of providing optimal system design for service systems and applications engineering. While exploring topics such as cloud ecosystems, interface localization, and requirement prioritization, this publication provides information about the approaches and development of software architectures to improve service quality. This book is a vital resource for engineers, theoreticians, educators, developers, IT consultants, researchers, practitioners, and professionals.
Description : This book presents Systems Engineering from a modern, multidisciplinary engineering approach, providing the understanding that all aspects of systems design, systems, software, test, security, maintenance and the full life-cycle must be factored in to any large-scale system design; up front, not factored in later. It lays out a step-by-step approach to systems-of-systems architectural design, describing in detail the documentation flow throughout the systems engineering design process. It provides a straightforward look and the entire systems engineering process, providing realistic case studies, examples, and design problems that will enable students to gain a firm grasp on the fundamentals of modern systems engineering. Included is a comprehensive design problem that weaves throughout the entire text book, concluding with a complete top-level systems architecture for a real-world design problem.
Description : Continuing advancements in electronics creates the possibility of communicating with more people at greater distances. Such an evolution calls for more efficient techniques and designs in radio communications. Emerging Innovations in Microwave and Antenna Engineering provides innovative insights into theoretical studies on propagation and microwave design of passive and active devices. The content within this publication is separated into three sections: the design of antennas, the design of the antennas for the RFID system, and the design of a new structure of microwave amplifier. Highlighting topics including additive manufacturing technology, design application, and performance characteristics, it is designed for engineers, electricians, researchers, students, and professionals, and covers topics centered on modern antenna and microwave circuits design and theory.
Description : In today’s society, modern power grids are driven closer to transfer capacities due to increased consumption and power transfers, endangering the security of the systems. Providing methods in controlling variables to minimize costs, transmission loss, and voltage deviation of power system operation yields valuable economic information and insight into power flow. Optimal Power Flow Using Evolutionary Algorithms provides emerging research exploring the theoretical and practical aspects of optimizing power system operation through advanced electronic power devices. Featuring coverage on a broad range of topics such as hybridization algorithm, power system modeling, and transmission systems, this book is ideally designed for engineers, power system developers, academicians, and researchers seeking current research on emerging techniques in achieving quality power under normal operating conditions.

Description : Increasingly, information technology governance is being considered an integral part of corporate governance. There has been a rapid increase in awareness and adoption of IT governance as well as the desire to conform to national governance requirements to ensure that IT is aligned with the objectives of the organization. Information Technology Governance and Service Management: Frameworks and Adaptations provides an in-depth view into the critical contribution of IT service management to IT governance, and the strategic and tactical value provided by effective service management. A must-have resource for academics, students, and practitioners in fields affected by IT in organizations, this work gathers authoritative perspectives on the state of research on organizational challenges and benefits in current IT governance frameworks, adoption, and incorporation.
Description : This book constitutes the revised selected papers of the scientific satellite events that were held in conjunction with the 15th International Conference on Service-Oriented Computing, ICSOC 2017, held in Málaga, Spain, in November 2017. The ICSOC 2017 workshop track consisted of three workshops on a wide range of topics that fall into the general area of service computing: ASOCA 2017: The Second Workshop on Adaptive Service-Oriented and Cloud Applications ISyCC 2016: The Second Workshop on IoT Systems Provisioning and Management in Cloud Computing WESOACS 2017: The 13th International Workshop on Engineering Service-Oriented Applications and Cloud Services
Description : Discover the emerging science and engineering of System of Systems Many challenges of the twenty-first century, such as fossil fuel energy resources, require a new approach. The emergence of System of Systems (SoS) and System of Systems Engineering (SoSE) presents engineers and professionals with the potential for solving many of the challenges facing our world today. This groundbreaking book brings together the viewpoints of key global players in the field to not only define these challenges, but to provide possible solutions. Each chapter has been contributed by an international expert, and topics covered include modeling, simulation, architecture, the emergence of SoS and SoSE, net-centricity, standards, management, and optimization, with various applications to defense, transportation, energy, the environment, healthcare, service industry, aerospace, robotics, infrastructure, and information technology. The book has been complemented with several case studies—Space Exploration, Future Energy Resources, Commercial Airlines Maintenance, Manufacturing Sector, Service Sector, Intelligent Transportation, Future Combat Missions, Global Earth Observation System of Systems project, and many more—to give readers an understanding of the real-world applications of this relatively new technology. System of Systems Engineering is an indispensable resource for aerospace and defense engineers and professionals in related fields.
Description : Product Realization: A Comprehensive Approach is based on selected papers presented at the International Conference on Comprehensive Product Realization 2007 (ICCPR2007). The extended papers will provide the opportunity for scholars from all around the world to discuss their academic programs, identify research opportunities, and initiate joint research programs in the area of comprehensive product realization. Engineering design has evolved from an isolated semi-empirical activity to a highly interconnected, multidisciplinary product realization collaborative process. The scope of the book will focus on a number of themes within the framework of the conference that are deemed essential to educating the next generation of students and practicing engineers in the area of product realization.
