Title:Software Reliability Modeling [electronic resource] : Fundamentals and Applications
Author(s): Shigeru Yamada
Date:2014
Publisher:Tokyo : Springer Japan : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Software reliability is one of the most important characteristics of software product quality. Its measurement and management technologies during the software product life cycle are essential to produce and maintainquality/reliable software systems. Part 1 of this book introduces several aspects of software reliability modeling and its applications. Hazard rate and nonhomogeneous Poisson process (NHPP) models are investigated particularly forquantitative software reliability assessment. Further, impe rfect debugging and software availability models are discussed with reference to incorporating practical factors of dynamic software behavior. Three software managementproblems are presented as application technologies of software reliability models: the optimal software release problem, the statistical testing-progress control, and the optimal testing-effort allocation problem. Part 2 of the bookdescribes several recent developments in software reliability modeling and their applications as quantitative techniques for software quality/reliability measurement and assessment. The discussion includes a quality engineeringanalysis of human factors affecting software reliability during the design review phase, which is the upper stream of software development , as well as software reliability growth models based on stochastic differential equations anddiscrete calculus during the testing phase, which is the lower stream. The final part of the book provides an illustration of quality-oriented software managemen t analysis by applying the multivariate analysis method and the existingsoftware reliability growth models to actual process monitoring data

Note:This book collects the proceedings of the 10th Workshop on Model-Oriented Design and Analysis (mODa). A model-oriented view on the design of experiments, which is the unifying theme of all mODa meetings, assumes some knowledge ofthe form of the data- generating process and naturally leads to the so-called optimum experimental design. Its theory and practice have since become important in many scientific and technological fields, ranging from optimal designs fordynamic models in pharmacological researc h, to designs for industrial experimentation, to designs for simulation experiments in environmental risk management, to name but a few. The methodology has become even more important in recentyears because of the increased speed of scientific development s, the complexity of the systems currently under investigation and the mounting pressure on businesses, industries and scientific researchers to reduce product and processdevelopment times. This increased competition requires ever increasing efficiency in experimentation, thus necessitating new statistical designs. This book presents a rich collection of carefully selected contributions ranging fromstatistical methodology to emerging applications. It primarily aims to provide an overview of recent advance s and challenges in the field, especially in the context of new formulations, methods and state-of-the-art algorithms. Thetopics included in this volume will be of interest to all scientists and engineers and statisticians who conduct experiments

Note:Despite significant achievements, the discipline of supply chain management is still unable to satisfactorily handle many practical real-world challenges. The authors of Networks Against Time claim that a unified supply chainnetwork analytics framewo rk is needed which should be able to handle optimization and competitive behavior while also maintain relevance to many industrial sectors in which perishable products are prominent, from healthcare to food andfrom fashion apparel to technology. This Brie f provides a wide range of critical supply chain problems which are modeled as generalized networks. Guidelines are provided to determine the arc multipliers that capture perish ability ofthe product whether food, radioisotopes, or even highly perishable blood in healthcare over space and time. Through case studies the authors portray the application of the models and algorithms to real-world sectors which illustratethe power of the framework in practice. The models and algorithms are fully described alon g with the input and output data in the case studies. This level of transparency is useful pedagogically as well as for future research and forapplications in practice. Researchers and practitioners in mathematics, in operations research and management sc ience, operations management, as well as in economics and computer science will find this book useful to gain a broaderappreciation of the richness of network supply chain structures, processes, and applications. This book can also be used by advanced und ergraduate students and graduate students in the disciplines noted above to familiarize themselveswith methodologies and supply chain network models and applications

Note:Matrix-analytic and related methods have become recognized as an important and fundamental approach for the mathematical analysis of general classes of complex stochastic models. Research in the area of matrix-analytic andrelated methods seeks to dis cover underlying probabilistic structures intrinsic in such stochastic models, develop numerical algorithms for computing functionals (e.g., performance measures) of the underlying stochastic processes, andapply these probabilistic structures and/or compu tational algorithms within a wide variety of fields. This volume presents recent research results on: the theory, algorithms and methodologies concerning matrix-analytic and relatedmethods in stochastic models and the application of matrix-analytic and re lated methods in various fields, which includes but is not limited to computer science and engineering, communication networks and telephony, electrical andindustrial engineering, operations research, management science, financial and risk analysis, and b io-statistics. These research studies provide deep insights and understanding of the stochastic models of interest from amathematicsandapplications perspective, as well as identify directions for future research

Note:Product and service innovations are the result of mutually interacting creative and coordination tasks within a system that has to balance technical decisions, marketplace taste, personnel management, and stakeholder commitment.The constituent elemen ts of such systems are often scattered across multiple firms and across the globe and constitute a complex system consisting of many interacting parts. In the spirit of the butterfly effect, metaphoricallydescribing the sensitivity to initials conditions of chaotic systems, this book builds an argument that innovation butterflies can, in the short term, take up significant amounts of effort and sap efficiencies within individualinnovation projects. Such innovation butterflies can be prompted by external f orces such as government legislation or unexpected spikes in the price of basic goods (such as oil), unexpected shifts in market tastes, or from acompany managers decisions or those of its competitors. Even the smallest change, the smallest disruption, to this system can steer a firm down an unpredictable and irreversibly different path in terms of technology and marketevolution. In the long term, they can shift the balance of the entire innovation portfolio into unplanned directions. More importantly, we describe how innovation leaders can influence the emergent behavior of the system for good orill. The first half of the book draws parallels from physics, economics, and sociology as well as evidence from multiple industries to describe the structural an d behavioral causes of emergent phenomena in innovation settings as wellas their often negative impacts. In the second half of the book, we turn to distributed management of innovation under emergence. We show that innovation butterflies, if improperly ma naged, most often lead to negative outcomes. On theother hand, it is also argued that while the complexity of the innovation system and the desire to experiment and try new and emergent alterna

Note:Building an accurate representation of firm-wide credit exposure, used for both trading and risk management, raises significant theoretical and technical challenges. This volume can be considered as a roadmap to finding practicalsolutions to the prob lem of modelling, pricing, and hedging counterparty credit exposure for large portfolios of both vanilla and exotic derivatives, usually traded by large Investment Banks. It is divided into four parts, (I)Methodology, (II) Architecture and Implementation, (III) Products, and (IV) Hedging and Managing Counterparty Risk. Starting from a generic modelling and valuation framework based on American Monte Carlo techniques, it presents asoftware architecture, which, with its modular design, allows the computatio n of credit exposure in a portfolio-aggregated and scenario-consistent way. An essential part of the design is the definition of a programming language, whichallows trade representation based on dynamic modelling features. Several chapters are then devote d to the analysis of credit exposure across all asset classes, namely foreign exchange, interest rate, credit derivatives and equity.Finally it considers how to mitigate and hedge counterparty exposure. The crucial question of dynamic hedging is addressed by constructing a hybrid product, the Contingent-Credit Default Swap. This volume addresses, from a quantitativeperspective, recent developments related to counterparty credit exposure computation. Its unique characteristic is the combination of a rigoro us but simple mathematical approach with a practical view of the financial problem at hand....a fantastic book that covers all aspects of credit exposure modelling. Nowhere else can the interested reader find such a comprehensive collection of insights ar ound this topic covering methodology, implementation, products andapplications. A must read for practitioners and quants working in this space. Jrg Behrens, Fintegral Consulting, CH In the afterm

The physics and chemistry of nano-scale systems have made rapid advances and there are real prospects of translating exciting scientific findings into a new generation of processes and high technologyproducts with a potential impact on severa l industrial sectors. In particular the development of nano-structured magnetic materials plays a leading role in the increasing miniaturization of devices with superior performances. Theapplication areas considered are: i) magneto-electronics, where the control of electron spins in magnetic hetero-structures offers new and improved functionalities in devices of integrated digital electronics. Magnetic randomaccess memories, MRAM are among the principal applications for new non-volatile RAM with fast dyna mics, toward the pico-, femto-second range. ii) magnetic MEMS (micro-electro-mechanical systems), which are the integration ofmechanical and electro/ferromagnetic elements (micro-actuators and sensors) with conventional electronics MEMS, promise a revolut ion in several product categories. In fact the proposed integration enables the development of smartproducts, where sensors can gather information from the environment by measuring thermal, magnetic, electric, mechanical, biological chemical, optical char acteristics and the electronic section processes the information and theactuator promotes the action realizing a complete control of the environment. iii) Magnetic recording is a leading technology in the information storage domain and the most relevant a pplication in the field of magnetics, showingsurprising continuous progress over several decades towards the limit of terabit per square inch of areal density.>
