Sustainability's Coming Home: Preliminary Design Principles for the Sustainable Smart District

Robert Keller, Felix Röhrich, Lukas Schmidt, Gilbert Fridgen
2019 International Conference on Wirtschaftsinformatik  
The resulting nine preliminary design principles describe a first insight into the design of sustainable smart districts.  ...  On this basis, we derive and develop preliminary design principles with the help of semistructured interviews and a non-representative sample of the German population.  ...  What are preliminary design principles for a platform-based ecosystem of a sustainable smart district?  ...

Appendix A: Virtually Synchronous Methodology for Building Dynamic Reliable Services [chapter]

Ken Birman, Dahlia Malkhi, Robbert Van Renesse
2012 Guide to Reliable Distributed Systems  
In designing and building distributed systems, it is common engineering practice to separate steady-state ("normal") operation from abnormal events such as recovery from failure.  ...  We suspect that any developer confronting this topic will have had a considerable amount of experience with distributed systems.  ...  Reliable multicast is a good place to start because many distributed systems rely on some form of multicast-like mechanism at a basic level, perhaps presenting it as a multicast, or perhaps hiding it in  ...

Preliminary design of the SAFE platform

André DeHon, Sumit Ray, Olin Shivers, Jonathan M. Smith, Gregory Sullivan, Ben Karel, Thomas F. Knight, Gregory Malecha, Benoît Montagu, Robin Morisset, Greg Morrisett, Benjamin C. Pierce (+1 others)
2011 Proceedings of the 6th Workshop on Programming Languages and Operating Systems - PLOS '11  
Though the project is still at an early stage, we have assembled a set of basic architectural choices that we believe will yield a high-assurance system.  ...  Safe is a clean-slate design for a secure host architecture. It integrates advances in programming languages, operating systems, and hardware and incorporates formal methods at every step.  ...  Ultimately, we plan to add a static type system that will help guide the task of programming and provide an extra layer of checking, in keeping with the standard security principle of defense-in-depth.  ...

Transforming project delivery: integrated project delivery

Howard Ashcraft
2022 Oxford review of economic policy  
The design and construction industry has long suffered low productivity and poor project outcomes.  ...  This paper examines integrated project delivery (IPD), a collaborative contractual approach that alters a project's fundamental commercial, organizational, and legal structures to minimize dysfunction  ...  Some D-B projects only require adherence to performance specifications; others require compliance with a provided preliminary design. Any of these variations can affect the project outcome.  ...
