The purposes of this study were to examine gender differences during drop jumps, to evaluate the effect of a set of simple instructions on kinematic and kinetic parameters during a drop jump, and to determine if there are gender differences in the effects of instruction on those parameters. Twenty-five basketball players, 13 men and 12 women, performed drop(More)
The rapid flow of information through a command-and-control organization strengthens the agility of the command and increases the efficiency of the organization. Therefore, a metric is proposed for the speed of useful information as it flows in an organization, enterprise or command structure. Information is assumed to be useful if a member of the(More)
This paper describes an agent-based model for exploring the effects of traditional supervisory merit-based promotions and hierarchical organizational structure on the flow of information. Each agent simulating a worker follows the same rules for handling information and promotion: Agents differ only in the breadth of information they consider important. The(More)
This paper describes the work of the W3C Decisions and Decision-making Incubator 1 , with the goal to identify requirements for a standard decision format, through a set of use cases, and to develop a first version of a potential standard format for representing decisions, fulfilling the requirements of the use cases and exploiting semantic web standards.(More)
—This paper describes design considerations for the implementation of a decision-support system based on a Common Decision Exchange Protocol (CDEP), which is an XML-, REST-based protocol for representing generic human decisions in a simple, interoperable format. The paper also describes characteristics of decisions that should be expressed using CDEP and(More)
Research shows that an analytical solution of information velocity is intractable but met-rics that support understanding the factors that affect information flow can be useful. This paper describes an agent-based model for information flow that explores physical analogs to the metric's causal measures. Interactions and exchanges are modeled as physical(More)
