21. Nanotribology Application in the Coining Industry (II) - Optimization of Lubricant Film Formation on Blanks
Topic: Process Improvement
Published: 6/25/2013
Authors: Tsi-Neng Ying, Richard Swift Gates
Abstract: A new method has been developed to lubricate metal coin blanks during the coin production process. The lubricant is formed on the metal surfaces as a monomolecular film during burnishing which provides an exceptional combination of chemical and trib ...

22. New Capabilities for Process and Interaction Modeling in BPMN 2
Topic: Process Improvement
Published: 1/5/2011
Authors: Stephen White, Conrad E Bock
Abstract: This paper provides a high-level introduction to new features in processes and interaction diagrams in the Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN) Version 2.0. BPMN 2.0 expands the capabilities of BPMN 1.x Process and Collaboration diagrams, a ...

23. 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 ...

24. Ontological Behavior Modeling
Topic: Process Improvement
Published: 5/20/2011
Authors: Conrad E Bock, James Odell
Abstract: This article gives an example of improving the effectiveness of behavior modeling languages using ontological techniques. The techniques are applied to behaviors in the Unified Modeling Language (UML), using the logical meanings for classification in ...

Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7961
Topic: Process Improvement
Published: 11/20/2013
Authors: Alexander Brodsky, Guodong Shao, Frank H Riddick
Abstract: This paper introduces NIST‰s Sustainable Process Analytics Formalism (SPAF) to facilitate the use of simulation and optimization technologies for decision support in sustainable manufacturing. SPAF allows formal modeling of modular, extensible, and r ...

26. Performance Evaluation of Robotic Knowledge Representation (PERK)
Topic: Process Improvement
Published: 3/22/2012
Authors: Craig I Schlenoff, Sebti Foufou, Stephen B. Balakirsky
Abstract: In this paper, we explore some ways in which symbolic knowledge representations have been evaluated in the past and provide some thoughts on what should be considered when applying and evaluating these types of knowledge representations for real-time ...

27. Processes Analytics Formalism for Decision Guidance in Sustainable Manufacturing
Topic: Process Improvement
Published: 5/19/2014
Authors: Alexander Brodsky, Guodong Shao, Frank H Riddick
Abstract: This paper introduces National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)‰s Sustainable Process Analytics Formalism (SPAF) to facilitate the use of simulation and optimization technologies for decision support in sustainable manufacturing. SPAF all ...

28. Relationship between machinability index and in-process parameters during orthogonal cutting of steels
Topic: Process Improvement
Published: 6/1/2011
Authors: Eric Paul Whitenton, Iban Arriola, Jarred Heigel, Pedro Arrazola
Abstract: Temperature and plastic strain maps were obtained during orthogonal cutting of two AISI 4140 steels with different machinability indexes using a high-speed dual-spectrum (visible and infrared) and visible spectrum cameras, respectively. Surface and i ...

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 ...

30. 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 ...
