Betriebsstörungen und Warteschlangen: Die Erfassung by Klaus-Peter Kistner

By Klaus-Peter Kistner

Kistner legt eine streng aufgebaute vollstandige Theorie stor­ anfalliger Produktionssysteme vor. Der erste Teil enthalt eine Einflihrung in das challenge, der zweite Teil behandelt Betriebs­ storungen bei einzelnen Maschinen, und der dritte Teil analy~ siert Betriebsstorungen bei mehreren interdependenten Maschi­ nen. Im vierten Teil werden die Ergebnisse zusammengefaBt. Die vorliegende Arbeit ist ein fundamentales Werk zur Theorie der Betriebsstorungen. Hier wird eine wesentliche Llicke ge­ schlossen. Der Abhandlung liegt ein strenges Schema zugrunde:" In einem storanfalligen Produktionssystem sind vier Basispro­ zesse zu unterscheiden: AnkunftsprozeB, BedienungsprozeB, Sto­ rungsprozeB und ReparaturprozeB. Von diesen Basisprozessen wer­ den der WarteschlangenprozeB, WartezeitprozeB und der Maschi­ nenzustandsprozeB abgeleitet. Den Storungsprozessen kommt die groBte Bedeutung zu. Kistner flihrt eine eigene sehr sachadaqua­ te Systematik der Betriebsstorungen ein. Innerhalb der Storun­ gen unterscheidet Kistner unterbrechende Storungen, ausschuB­ verursachende Storungen, verzogerte Storungen und ein Nachlas­ sen der Bedienungsgeschwindigkeit. Im Rahmen dieser Hauptgrup­ pen von Storungen werden kumulative Storungen, externe Storun­ gen und interne Storungen unterschieden. Diese Grundformen von Betriebsstorungen und ihre verschiedenen Kombinationen ergeben eine Flille von Erklarungsmodellen und Optimierungsmodellen, die Kistner auf ihre Eigenschaften hin untersucht. Besonders gllicklich gelungen ist die Verbindung von allgemeinen Zustandsbedingungen und Optimalitatsbedingungen und ihre anschauliche numerische Auswertung. Eindrucksvoll sind auch die anschaulichen Vergleiche der verschiedenen Mo­ delle. Kistner leitet viele analytische und durch Simulation gewonnene neue Ergebnisse abo Hier kann nur auf einige hingewiesen wer­ den: Die optimale Betriebsgeschwindigkeit in einem storanfal­ ligen ProzeE ist groEer als bei einer storungsfreien Maschine.

Radar and Laser Cross Section Engineering (2nd Edition) by D. Jenn

By D. Jenn

There were many new advancements within the ten years because the first version of "Radar and Laser move part Engineering" was once released. Stealth expertise is now an enormous attention within the layout of all kinds of systems. the second one version incorporates a extra huge creation that covers the $64000 facets of stealth expertise and the original tradeoffs concerned with stealth layout. Prediction, aid, and dimension of electromagnetic scattering from complicated three-d goals continues to be the first emphasis of this article, constructed through the writer from classes taught on the Naval Postgraduate college. New themes on computational equipment just like the finite point technique and the finite integration strategy are lined, in addition to new components within the program of radar soaking up fabric and synthetic metamaterials. Matlab [registered] software program, homework difficulties, and an answer guide (available to teachers) complement the textual content. Written as a tutorial textual content, this ebook is usually recommended for upper-level undergraduate and graduate scholars. it's also a very good reference publication for engineers in who wish an advent to the physics and arithmetic of radar go part so that it will higher comprehend the interdisciplinary facets of stealth.
