This pocket guide is a practical book and provides compulsory reading material for anyone who wants to learn more about SqEME® process management, or intends using SqEME. It acts as an instructive guide, with directives and tips showing an efficient approach for structuring, mastering and improving processes; supported by real life case studies. This pocket guide explains the essentials of SqEME® process management. As a methodology, SqEME ® views processes from four different perspectives known as ‘windows’. The content of this title is broken down into these four ‘windows’: Constitution; Correspondence; Chemistry; Construction; The language and drawing conventions for SqEME are dealt with as key issues. SqEME® is an open standard for developing a processed-centred architecture of an enterprise. It may be reproduced freely by any organization wishing to use it to develop a governance structure on the quality of their business processes. SqEME® Process Management is a method that facilitates discussion of the design of the organization, in a subtle but unambiguous way. Processes have to hold a prominent place in observing organizations: how are the different parts of the organization tuned to each other and how does adequate communication take place? SqEME® as a methodology views processes from four different perspectives. SqEME® calls these ‘windows’; by means of which one seeks for the Constitution, Chemistry, Correspondence and Construction of the enterprise. SqEME® is the result of more than twenty years experience with the management of business processes within various organizations. SqEME® has been applied successfully in industry (chemistry, automotive, construction, paper), in the business sector (IT service, healthcare), in the non-profit sector, and in public companies such as the Prosecution Counsel, County Councils and local authorities. The SqEME® Foundation is a platform for discussing the method and its application, where insights into the basic assumptions and backgrounds are shared: www.sqeme.org.

Programming multi-core and many-core computing systems Sabri Pllana, Linnaeus University, Sweden Fatos Xhafa, Technical University of Catalonia, Spain Provides state-of-the-art methods for programming multi-core and many-core systems The book comprises a selection of twenty two chapters covering: fundamental techniques and algorithms; programming approaches; methodologies and frameworks; scheduling and management; testing and evaluation methodologies; and case studies for programming multi-core and many-core systems. Program development for multi-core processors, especially for heterogeneous multi-core processors, is significantly more complex than for single-core processors. However, programmers have been traditionally trained for the development of sequential programs, and only a small percentage of them have experience with parallel programming. In the past, only a relatively small group of programmers interested in High Performance Computing (HPC) was concerned with the parallel programming issues, but the situation has changed dramatically with the appearance of multi-core processors on commonly used computing systems. It is expected that with the pervasiveness of multi-core processors, parallel programming will become mainstream. The pervasiveness of multi-core processors affects a large spectrum of systems, from embedded and general-purpose, to high-end computing systems. This book assists programmers in mastering the efficient programming of multi-core systems, which is of paramount importance for the software-intensive industry towards a more effective product-development cycle. Key features: Lessons, challenges, and roadmaps ahead. Contains real world examples and case studies. Helps programmers in mastering the efficient programming of multi-core and many-core systems. The book serves as a reference for a larger audience of practitioners, young researchers and graduate level students. A basic level of programming knowledge is required to use this book.
