Multi-granular Arithmetic in a Coarse-Grain Reconfigurable Architecture

Stef Louwers, Luc Waeijen, Mark Wijtvliet, Ruud Koolen, Henk Corporaal
2016 2016 Euromicro Conference on Digital System Design (DSD)  
In this report, we investigate the details of performing common arithmetic operations in a multi-granular setting in the context of the BLOCKS CGRA architecture.  ...  One way of solving this issue is by designing the operation circuits such that several such units can be combined efficiently to form a single, bigger arithmetic unit.  ...  Of course, implementing large operations as a multi-granular composition does come at a cost.  ...

An empirical foundation for product flexibility

P.K. Palani Rajan, Michael Van Wie, Matthew I. Campbell, Kristin L. Wood, Kevin N. Otto
2005 Design Studies  
In this paper, we develop a method to evaluate product flexibility by performing an empirical study that examines the dependency of flexibility on the number of parts, functions, interfaces, types of interfaces  ...  , modules, and the manner of module arrangement.  ...  One important aspect, addressed throughout the study, is the granularity of these functional models. These are maintained on the same level of granularity, as much as possible throughout the study.  ...

Applying Learner-Centered Design Principles to UML Sequence Diagrams

Debra VanderMeer, kaushik Dutta
2009 Journal of Database Management  
Based on this analysis, and drawing on the theory of learner-centered design, we develop a set of recommendations for presenting the sequence diagram building task to the student analyst to reduce the  ...  complexity of learning how to build them.  ...  This is a logical jump in abstraction from a lower granularity of detail to a higher granularity of detail, where the student analyst must add detail not explicitly provided in the requirements document  ...

Mini-MES: A Microservices-Based Apps System for Data Interconnecting and Production Controlling in Decentralized Manufacturing

Pulin Li, Pingyu Jiang, Jiajun Liu
2019 Applied Sciences  
Manufacturing factories and their resources are moving towards being networked, flat, flexible, and diversified in the context of social manufacturing.  ...  The basic properties of the M2ES Apps System, such as its running logic and its data organization, are discussed, and a real-world industrial case is described to illustrate how it works.  ...  Finer granularity always goes with more Apps, which will decrease convenience. So, it is vital to decompose the functions with appropriate granularity.  ...
