31. The Multi-Relationship Evaluation Design (MRED) Framework: Producing Evaluation Blueprints to Test Emerging, Advanced, and Intelligent Systems
Topic: Process Improvement
Published: 9/30/2010
Authors: Brian A Weiss, Linda C. Schmidt
Abstract: This paper introduces the Multi-Relationship Evaluation Design (MRED) framework whose objective is to take uncertain input data and automatically output comprehensive evaluation blueprints complete with targeted evaluation elements. MRED is unique in ...

Topic: Process Improvement
Published: 5/5/2010
Authors: Brian A Weiss, Linda C. Schmidt, Harry A. Scott, Craig I Schlenoff
Abstract: As new technologies are developed and mature, it becomes extremely important to provide both formative and summative assessments on their performance. Performance assessment events range in form from a few simple tests of key elements of the technolo ...

33. Carbon Weight Analysis for Machining Operation and Allocation for Redesign
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7560
Topic: Process Improvement
Published: 12/16/2009
Authors: Gaurav Ameta, Mahesh Mani, Sudarsan Rachuri, Kevin W Lyons, Shaw C Feng, Ram D Sriram
Abstract: The objective of this research is to explore and develop a new methodology for computing carbon weight (CW) - often referred to as carbon footprint, in manufacturing processes from the part level to assembly level. In this initial study we focused on ...

34. The Impact of Scenario Development on the Performance of Speech Translation Systems Prescribed by the SCORE Framework
Topic: Process Improvement
Published: 9/25/2009
Authors: Brian A Weiss, Craig I Schlenoff
Abstract: The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency's (DARPA) Spoken Language Communication and Translation for Tactical Use (TRANSTAC) program is a focused advanced technology research and development program. The intent of the TRANSTAC program is to ...

35. Dynamic Properties for Modeling and Simulation of Machining: An Update of Results from the NIST Pulse-Heated Kolsky Bar
Topic: Process Improvement
Published: 5/7/2009
Authors: Timothy J Burns, Steven P Mates, Richard L. Rhorer, Eric Paul Whitenton, Debasis Basak
Abstract: The NIST Pulse-Heated Kolsky Bar Laboratory has been developed for the measure-ment of dynamic properties of metals, primarily for application to the study of high-speed machining processes. Because the work material in these processes can be subject ...

36. On Capturing Information Requirements in Process Specifications
Topic: Process Improvement
Published: 2/1/2007
Authors: Edward J. Barkmeyer Jr., Peter O Denno
Abstract: Historically, business process models refer only to large information sets, and database models and messaging standards provide models of all information about the related business entities that might be used in any of several business processes. In ...

37. Allocation of Manufacturers through Internet-based Collaboration for Distributed Process Planning
Topic: Process Improvement
Published: 8/1/2006
Authors: Jungyub Woo, Hyunbo Cho, Boonserm Kulvatunyou
Abstract: The pursuit of lower cost, shorter time-to-market, and better quality has led to a shift toward global production in today?s competitive business environment. This shift, however, forces manufacturing enterprises to have separate design houses and ma ...

38. UML 2 Activity and Action Models
Topic: Process Improvement
Published: 7/1/2003
Author: Conrad E Bock
Abstract: This is the first in a series introducing the activity model in the Unified Modeling Language, version 2 (UML 2), and how it integrates with the action model [1]. The series is a companion to the standard, providing additional background, rationale, ...
