Abstract - Business process modeling and execution in SOA requires a set of methodologies and tools which support transition from analysis to execution level. Web services play a significant role in application development in SOA environment and publishing its functionality on registries to link their data and operations for different applications.

Web service selection must satisfy not only the functional requirements but also the Non Functional Requirements

(NFR) of the user. Based on our literature survey, we observe the need for improvement in current approaches so as to consider NFR during web service selection. Further, as number of users and their specific requirements increase,

Abstract – Knowledge Management is a young discipline that nowadays it is important for software development organizations (SDO). For this reason, this paper presents a review about the form knowledge management has been included in several Software Process Reference Models. For this study, five software process reference models, broadly used in Latin-American countries, were analyzed. The findings of this study show that in all models there are elements of knowledge management processes, and there are two models with a process area named Knowledge Management.

Nevertheless, the knowledge management aspects included in these models is grounded in statements from Earl’s systems and engineering schools. Likewise, in terms of Gold’s knowledge management capabilities, the technology, knowledge acquisition and knowledge conversion capabilities are broadly covered but elements for others capabilities are not included in these reference models.

Abstract - The complex embedded systems of locomotives require a vast amount of the Hardware-in-the-Loop (HIL) testing before manufacturing. Various simulation efforts are required to commit testing of the target embedded systems.

Therefore, development of the most effective systems is necessary for efficient and accurate verification of the embedded systems. Since most of the verification is complete on the software, simulator seldom uses behaviors of IO operations, which are critical in real-time applications including embedded systems for locomotives. This paper proposes a bus interface system to replacing the existing massive IO cards in an embedded system integrated in a locomotive simulator for providing reconfigurable extension while maintaining required IO specifications including IO access speed and signal fidelity. The developed bus interface system is integrated to a modified Modbus (FEBus) and the main simulator computer. The bus interface system is implemented with FPGA including the NIOS II processor core with associated other IP cores. In order to evaluate capability of the HIL simulation with the developed system, a couple of interface protocols, such as PCI over a PMC connection and

Abstract - This study represents a vector model of intellect and it also demonstrates entered by the authors the notions of vectors of intelligence and preparedness for a given type of intellectual activity and the scalar action on implementation of intellectual activity. Based on Field Theory, the mathematical substantiation of the wave nature of intelligence and intellectual activity has been received. The boundary value problem has been formulated and solved in order to assess the change of the condition of the student’s preparedness to certain intellectual activity. The solution of this problem will allow prediction of the development of the process of intellectual activity as well as to study the possibility of the processes of interference among separate kinds of intelligence.

Abstract

There are a plethora of formal methods for educating undergraduate students, including recommendations for classroom management, concept presentation and assignment creation. What is often overlooked is the influence that student-instructor attachment might have on performance. On the primary and secondary levels there is evidence to support what we would assume to be true; that attachment does effect performance. We then assume that, to some degree, these findings would carry over to collegebased instruction. Instructors have their preferred teaching styles (based on their personality types and learning styles), but regardless of the variations that exist and how well they correspond to student preferences, what is essential to learning is student motivation. Motivation could be influenced by a combination of factors, including inherent interest, career objectives, external pressures (i.e., parental expectation), and appropriate (based on skill level) complexity of assignments.
