Note:The 10th International Workshop on Intelligent Statistical Quality Control took place in Seattle, USA, Aug 18-20, 2010. It was hosted by Professor C. M. Mastrangelo, Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering, University ofWashington, Seattle. The workshop was jointly organized by Professors H.- J. Lenz, C. M. Mastrangelo, W. Schmid and P.-T. Wilrich. The twenty-seven papers in this volume were carefully selected by the scientific program committee,reviewed by its members, revised by the author s and, finally, adapted for this volume by the editors. The book is divided into two parts: Part I On-line Controlcovers fields like control charting, monitoring and surveillance aswell as acceptance sampling. Part II Off-line Control is devoted to experi mental design, process capability analysis and data quality. The purpose of the book is on the one hand to provide insights into important new developmentsin the area of statistical quality control especially surveillance and monitoring and on the other hand to critically discuss methods used in on-line and off-line statistical quality control

Note:Dynamics of Information Systems presents state-of-the-art research explaining the importance of information in the evolution of a distributed or networked system. This book presents techniques for measuring the value orsignificance of information wit hin the context of a system. Each chapter reveals a unique topic or perspective from experts in this exciting area of research. These newly developed techniques have numerous applications including: thedetection of terrorist networks, the design of highly functioning businesses and computer systems, modeling the distributed sensory and control physiology of animals, quantum entanglement and genome modeling, multi-robotic systemsdesign, as well as industrial and manufacturing safety. This volume is intende d for graduate students and researchers interested in the most recent developments in information theory and dynamical systems, as well as scientists inother fields interested in the application of these principles to their own area of study

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Safety critical and high-integrity systems, such as industrial plants and economic systems, can be subject to abrupt changes - for instance, due to component or interconnection failure, sudden environment changes, etc. Combiningprobability and operat or theory, Discrete-Time Markov Jump Linear Systems provides a unified and rigorous treatment of recent results for the control theory of discrete jump linear systems, which are used in these areas of application.The book is designed for experts in linear systems with Markov jump parameters, but is also of interest for specialists in stochastic control since it presents stochastic control problems for which an explicit solution is possible -making the book suitable for course use. Oswaldo Luiz do Valle Co sta is Professor in the Department of Telecommunications and Control Engineering at the University of So Paulo, Marcelo Dutra Fragoso is Professor in the Department ofSystems and Control at the National Laboratory for Scientific Computing - LNCC/MCT, Rio de Janeiro, and Ricardo Paulino Marques works in the Department of Telecommunications and Control Engineering at the University of So Paulo
