This book seeks to promote the structured, standardized and accurate use of software measurement at all levels of modern software development companies. To do so, it focuses on seven main aspects: sound scientific foundations, cost-efficiency, standardization, value-maximization, flexibility, combining organizational and technical aspects, and seamless technology integration. Further, it supports companies in their journey from manual reporting to automated decision support by combining academic research and industrial practice. When scientists and engineers measure something, they tend to focus on two different things. Scientists focus on the ability of the measurement to quantify whatever is being measured; engineers, however, focus on finding the right qualities of measurement given the designed system (e.g. correctness), the system´s quality of use (e.g. ease of use), and the efficiency of the measurement process. In this book, the authors argue that both focuses are necessary, and that the two are complementary. Thus, the book is organized as a gradual progression from theories of measurement (yes, you need theories to be successful!) to practical, organizational aspects of maintaining measurement systems (yes, you need the practical side to understand how to be successful). The authors of this book come from academia and industry, where they worked together for the past twelve years. They have worked with both small and large software development organizations, as researchers and as measurement engineers, measurement program leaders and even teachers. They wrote this book to help readers define, implement, deploy and maintain company-wide measurement programs, which consist of a set of measures, indicators and roles that are built around the concept of measurement systems. Based on their experiences introducing over 40,000 measurement systems at over a dozen companies, they share essential tips and tricks on how to do it right and how to avoid common pitfalls.

Doktorarbeit / Dissertation aus dem Jahr 2008 im Fachbereich Informatik - Wirtschaftsinformatik, Note: magna cum laude, Eberhard-Karls-Universität Tübingen (Wirtschaftswissenschaftlichen Fakultät), Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Die wissenschaftliche Auseinandersetzung mit Kennzahlen- und Informationssystemen sowie ihre Umsetzung in der Praxis unterlagen in den letzten Jahrzehnten in der Betriebswirtschaftslehre im Allgemeinen und innerhalb der Wirtschaftsinformatik sowie des Controllings im Speziellen wechselnder Aufmerksamkeit. Über den Zeitverlauf hinweg war zu beobachten, dass die den Kennzahlen- und Informationssystemen zugrunde liegenden betriebswirtschaftlichen Konzepte teils verworfen, häufig jedoch verbessert und weiterentwickelt wurden. Diese konzeptionellen Fortschritte führten - verstärkt durch innovative Entwicklungen unter Nutzung der informations- und kommunikationstechnologischen Potenziale - zum heute weitverbreiteten Einsatz. Die große Bedeutung der Auseinandersetzung mit dieser Art von Systemen für die Wissenschaft zeigt sich daran, dass die nachfolgende Arbeit dem ersten von fünf für die Wirtschaftsinformatik priorisierten Forschungszielen, der Schaffung eines verbesserten Wissens über die Beherrschung von Komplexität in Informations- und Kommunikationssystemen zugeordnet werden kann. Eine Begründung der bis heute andauernden und mehr und mehr an Bedeutung gewinnenden Beschäftigung mit Kennzahlen- und Informationssystemen kann in der Wahrnehmung der hohen Relevanz von Information und ihrer Einstufung als Wirtschaftsgut, Produktions- und Wettbewerbsfaktor in der gegenwärtigen Informationsgesellschaft gefunden werden. Aufgrund der Erkenntnis, dass das effektive und effiziente Management der Informationen in Zeiten schneller wirtschaftlicher, technischer, politischer und sozialer Änderungen einen entscheidenden Faktor für eine erfolgreiche Unternehmensentwicklung darstellt, muss sich das Informationsmanagement im Unternehmen neuen Herausforderungen stellen. Nur so kann es seiner zugewiesenen Aufgabe nachkommen, einen Beitrag zur Erreichung der Unternehmensziele zu leisten. [...] Zur Erfüllung der steigenden Anforderungen und zur Bewältigung der Aufgabenvielfalt durch den Anwender, auch unter Zeitdruck, werden in Unternehmen System(e) zur Beschaffung, Verarbeitung, Übertragung, Speicherung und/oder Bereitstellung von Informationen eingesetzt. Diese bestehen im weiteren Sinne aus den Komponenten Organisation, Mensch und Technologie und verfolgen das Ziel, den Entscheidungsträger mit relevanten Informationen so zu versorgen, dass er in die Lage versetzt wird, die zur Erreichung der Unternehmensziele richtigen Entscheidungen treffen zu können ...

Standards such as IS017799, the Common Criteria (ISO15408), and a number of industry certifications and risk analysis methodologies have raised the bar for good security solutions from a business perspective. Designed for a professional audience composed of researchers and practitioners in industry, Quality of Protection: Security Measurements and Metrics is also suitable for advanced-level students in computer science. Information security in the business setting has matured in the last few decades. Standards, such as IS017799, the Common Criteria s, and a number of industry and academic certifications and risk analysis methodologies, have raised the bar on what is considered good security solution, from a business perspective. Yet, the evaluation of security solutions has largely a qualitative flavor. Notions such as Security Metrics, Quality of Protection (QoP) or Protection Level Agreement (PLA) have only surfaced in the literature. Quality of Protection: Security Measurements and Metrics is an edited volume based on the Quality of Protection Workshop at ESORICS 2005, the flagship European Symposium on Research in Computer Security. This book discusses how security research can progress towards a notion of quality of protection in security, comparable to the notion of quality of service in networking and software measurements and metrics, in empirical software engineering. Quality of Protection: Security Measurements and Metrics is designed for a professional audience, composed of researchers and practitioners in industry. This book is also suitable for graduate-level students in computer science and telecommunications.

Classical Control System

The Temperature measurement of liquid in a tank can be controlled by classical and advance control algorithms applying PID, FUZZY LOGIC , SFB, LQR. Here, we consider a three tank noninteracting system. We observed that tank1 affects the dynamic behavior of tank2. Similarly, tank2 affects the dynamic behavior of tank3 and vice versa, because the flow rate F1 depends on the difference between liquid levels h1and h2. Thus, a change in the inlet flowrate affects the liquid level in the tank, which in turn affects the temperature of the liquid. Basically, it is a thermal process. Various types of temperature sensors include RTD, T/C, and Thermistor. In this particular project the author used a mercury thermometer as sensor. Mathematical models of the three tank method give a third order equation. Each tank gives a transfer function of the first order system. They make it easy to check whether a particular algorithm is giving the requisite results. A lot of work has been carried out on the temperature control in terms of its stabilization. Many attempts have been made to control the response of temperature measuring systems.
