In the current demanding global marketplace, ensuring that human fit, form and function are comprehensively addressed, is becoming an increasingly important aspect of design and, in particular, obliges the most important automotive industries to develop more flexible assembly lines and better methods for PLM solution. In the meantime, designers attempt to(More)
Contemporary Grids are characterized by a middleware that provides the necessary virtualization of computation and data resources for the shared working environment of the Grid. In a large-scale view, different middleware technologies and implementations have to coexist. The SOA approach provides the needed architectural backbone for interoperable(More)
This Twenty-first century global systems such as climate change models, energy systems, and international trade, have traditionally trusted conventional logic and mathematics to reduce complexity. The 2008 failing of conventional predictive models (in all economical, political, and social spheres) proved that a new approach is needed to understand and(More)
The paper deals with an innovative system achieving an auxiliary source of energy supply from photovoltaic solar system, which operates in case of blackouts by providing a set of loads determined by the continuity of service during the absence of power supply by the network. The system is designed mainly suitable for use in the field of home appliances. It(More)
Purpose: The aim of this work consists in developing a design methodology for preventive ergonomics and comfort analyses of Human-Machine-Interface (HMI). Design/methodology/approach: Our method is based on the simulation of the main posture that a digital human model (a manikin representing, for example, a car’s driver) takes while using a machine (in this(More)
The nature and scope of fusion of imprecise data in the design is explored and discussed with subjective view of de Finetti. Every stage in the design process includes a level of approximation and is typically high in the preliminary phase. Engineering projects often are modified in several design iterations before being completed. Information received from(More)
The paper deals with a smart load priority control strategy for Photovoltaic Uninterruptible Power Supply (PV-UPS) system. This hybrid uninterruptible power supply system achieves an auxiliary source of energy supply from photovoltaic modules, which operates in case of blackouts by providing a set of loads determined by the continuity of service during the(More)
