A design process for system architecture design using multi-criteria optimization is described using a case study of an aero engine health management (EHM) system. The EHM system functional operations need to be deployed in order to satisfy their operational attribute requirements within the constraints of resource limitations. Considering the large(More)
Airline delay costs are incurred both on the day of operations (tactical cost) and at the planning stage (strategic cost). The latter may take the form of buffer in schedules. Strategic and tactical costs are not independent. Passenger costs of delay to the airline, crew, fuel, maintenance and fleet costs are quantified. Cost trade-offs are presented as a(More)
The dynamic equations of motion for a system of multiple mobile manipulators carrying a common deformable object are developed. The derived centralized model is based on Kane's approach to dynamics. The imposed kinematic nonholonomic constraints are included and incorporated into the dynamics. It is pointed out, however, that these kinematic constraints are(More)
