Decentralised process modelling [chapter]

Bashar Nuseibeh, Jeff Kramer, Anthony Finkelstein, Ulf Leonhardt
1995 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper, we advocate decentralised process modelling and suggest that understanding and modelling the development processes of individual development participants is the key to supporting collaborative  ...  Different situations can be used to trigger a variety of further development actions, such as consistency checks between process models of different development participants.  ...  An Approach to Decentralised Process Modelling Approach. Our approach is to represent individual process models locally by associating them with individual development participants.  ...

A spatially explicit whole-system model of the lignocellulosic bioethanol supply chain: an assessment of decentralised processing potential

Alex J Dunnett, Claire S Adjiman, Nilay Shah
2008 Biotechnology for Biofuels  
Conclusion: The conceptual and mathematical modelling framework developed provides a valuable tool for the assessment and optimisation of the lignocellulosic bioethanol supply chain.  ...  A combined production and logistics model has been developed to investigate cost-optimal system configurations for a range of technological, system scale, biomass supply and ethanol demand distribution  ...  These could be more readily decentralised, compared with fully integrated CHP systems, reducing the sensitivity of decentralised processing configurations (Figure 6b) to Process hot utility requirements  ...

Information theoretic quantiser design for decentralised estimation of hidden Markov models

S. Dey, F.A. Galati
2003 IEEE International Conference on Acoustics, Speech, and Signal Processing, 2003. Proceedings. (ICASSP '03).  
Quantiser design for a nonlinear filter is considered in the context of a decentralised estimation system with communication constraints.  ...  The filter is based on quantised outputs of a discretetime, two-state Hidden Markov Model (HMM) as measured by two remote sensor nodes.  ...  The fact that Hidden Markov Processes can model many nonlinear systems well provides the motivation for studying them in this context.  ...

Design and analysis of a multivariable fractional order controller for a non-minimum phase system

Cristina I Muresan, Eva H Dulf, Cosmin Copot, Robin De Keyser, Clara Ionescu
2015 Journal of Vibration and Control  
Two control strategies for multivariable processes are proposed that are based on a decentralised and a steady state decoupling approach. The designed controllers are fractional order PIs.  ...  Previous research for the same non-minimum phase process has proven that simple decentralised or decoupling techniques do not yield satisfactorily results and a multivariable IMC controller has been proposed  ...  Performance index for the disturbance rejection tests Control strategy Output y Output y 1 2 Nominal Modelling errors Nominal Modelling errors Decentralised fractional order control J =  ...

Learning to Model Opponent Learning (Student Abstract)

Ian Davies, Zheng Tian, Jun Wang
In this work, we develop a novel approach to modelling an opponent's learning dynamics which we term Learning to Model Opponent Learning (LeMOL).  ...  We show our structured opponent model is more accurate and stable than naive behaviour cloning baselines.  ...  This is particularly pronounced in the decentralised setting where the increased opponent model accuracy and stability provided by modelling the opponent's learning process is essential to attain similar  ...

Decentralised vs partially centralised self-organisation model for mobile robots in large structure assembly

Spartak Ljasenko, Pedro Ferreira, Laura Justham, Niels Lohse
2019 Computers in industry (Print)  
For that reason, an alternative, fully decentralised agent behaviour model was developed and compared to the hybrid one.  ...  Through simulated experiments, it was found that the decentralised agent behaviour model achieved much higher responsiveness; however, it required additional spare capacity to compensate for its decision-making  ...  By design, the decentralised model is not affected by increasing the frequency of disruptions that may arise in the manufacturing process.  ...

Decentralised Coordination for Software Process Enactment [chapter]

Jun Yan, Yun Yang, Gitesh K. Raikundalia
