Questions related to Systems
Currently I am researching the possibility's of implementing a Feedback loop based on a Lessons Learned database to Close the Loop in a project organization that focusses on Marine Contracting.
I'm looking for articles, best practices, best in class methods for implementing and maintaining these kinds of systems/tools.
I am looking for software for Systems mapping and Causal loop diagrams. It would be wonderful if any of you with experience in this could share some information.
Have you used any? Any advice or feedback? Pros and cons?
Thanks in advance,
What is the difference between "process" and "system"?
- When we look at something and see a sequence of activities producing outputs we are observing a process
- A process produces results through work being done in the process
- Processes produce outputs
- Process owners manage process outputs
- When we look at something and see the buildings, the people, the relationships, the activities and the interactions we are observing a system
- A system produces results through the interaction of elements
- Systems create outcomes
- System managers manage outcomes
There are therefore two quite different types of management.
- There is process management which will manage the achievement of results by planning, organizing, controlling and continually improving the work required to produce them.
- There is system management which will manage a system of interacting elements that function together to achieve an objective.
The boundary between process and system is where the output fulfils a system objective. For example, If we treat the series of steps in frying an egg as a process, we will find that frying the egg is one stage of a meal preparation process. The meal preparation process is one stage in the service delivery process. Any of these processes can interact with the outputs from a process that manages the resources used in meal preparation process. Cut off the supply of electricity and the cook can’t fry the egg. We therefore ascend through a hierarchy of processes to a system of processes which together with other elements deliver an experience that will delight the customer – the objective of frying the egg, preparing the meal and delivering the service.
Business entity management processes are more and more often supported by computerized Business Intelligence platforms that facilitate multi-criteria analysis and reporting.
Complex, multi-criteria analyzes regarding the verification of large companies' operations require aggregation and analytical processing of large data sets in Big Data database systems.
Specialized IT companies produce applications that help in conducting economic analyzes, i.e. the Business Intelligence platform.
More and more often, large and medium-sized companies use these platforms to adapt them to the specifics of their business.
However, in what direction will technological progress be realized in this field?
In view of the above, the current question is: Will the artificial intelligence for Business Intelligence application be implemented as part of the progressing computerization of analytical processes?
Please, answer, comments. I invite you to the discussion.
I've sketched the following basic metrics categories that one can get from a cloud-native application monitoring solution and use for e.g. anomaly detection:
- structural (e.g. length of a request trace)
- temporal (e.g. traces as distributed on the timescale, duration of the trace and calls within it)
- performance (e.g. 99%-tile response time, throughput)
- resource (e.g. CPU utilization, memory utilization)
- workload (e.g. request rate by endpoint)
- capacity (e.g. number of pods for service)
What do you think about it? Is there something missing? Can some more coarse-granular grouping be introduced?
I am researching on controlling systems with time varying parametric changes. After studying few exemplar/textbook systems, I would want to apply it to a practical scenario. Thus, looking for a system matrix (A(t)) of such a robotic/real life system.
Do you have the mathematical formula of the punching force in the case of drawing with a hemispherical punch system ?
Thanks in advance.
I believe that the risk continues to grow in financial systems. This means that another global crisis can not be ruled out in the next few years. The financial system has not been repaired, and necessary investment programs for prudential systems have not been forced on investment banks. Large banks are becoming even larger. in autumn 2008 one of Lehman Brothers investment banks collapsed but several other similar ones earned in this crisis, in addition, there are many indications that they have contributed significantly to generating such a high systemic risk, they used the crisis to their business goals. The investment banks were not restricted from taking such high credit risk, which contributed to the outbreak of the global financial crisis in 2008. The system still remains vulnerable, the procedures are still not honestly observed. The fact that another global financial crisis will generate investment banks is almost certain. The only question is when will it happen?
Please, answer, comments. I invite you to the discussion.

How we can perturb an abstract model.?Like if we have a system of equations $dx/dt=f(x,y), dy/dt=g(x,y), x(0)=x_0, y(0)=y_0$. If we wish to perturb the given system, so in how many ways one can do that? Like what I saw that we can do it by adding perturbation term(s) to right side of the above system, varying the initial conditions, or adding some singularity terms e.g multiplying epsilon to left side of any of above equations.
If a very high % of higher ed. students think: "open my brain and just pour the knowledge in" we may be doomed in discovering things for bad sciences (with no one willing to look at whole systems of understanding -- though they do not work).
There has always been a disturbing % of students (including ones who have become professors) that had this basic attitude and approach. Now, in this iPhone, etc age, it seems the % may have reached "critical mass" for hopelessness.
The good news: one or a few people could process a whole new system and investigate it (these students being among some very rare subset). These students (several) could make entire good careers out of such work. They may well occupy some seats on a plane to Oslo some day too. AND:
Frankly: analytic professors OWE THE WHOLE WORLD SUCH ANALYSIS for penance for their false persuading assertions that have messed up behavioral science FOR 100 YEARS !!
It would be great, if you could share any transfection efficiency and viability information. Many thanks in advance.
Can I measure the motivation of students by asking direct questions such as 'The use of the system has motivated me' or do I need to use one of the motivation theories such as Theories of Motivation and ARCS model?
I need recent scientific articles full text free, to developed my thesis (onychophagia)
Taking into account the definition of autonomy in systems ( the ability of a system to achieve its own objectives without external interference) how can we distinguish systems that are fully autonomous of those who are partially autonomous ?

What is the information given by bode diagram in addition to informations given by nyquist diagram in impedance spectroscopy of an electrochemical system?
I am working with stimuli-sensitive polymer nanoparticles to deliver doxorubicin and I don not know the the volume of PBS that I should use to asses the release profile of the system.
I perform microstructural simulations and consider a polycrystal with cubic lattice. Each grain characterizes by its coordinate system Cc, which is somehow oriented relative to the global (specimen) coordinate system Cs. The orientation is expressed in terms of direction cosines. I need to construct an orientation matrix g consisting of three orthogonal vectors: Cc = g * Cs. The question is how I should order my three unit vectors in the orientation matrix. Should I put the unit vector with the maximum x coordinate in the first row, the unit vector with the maximum y coordinate in the second row and so on?
I initially used the landsat gapfil extension in a different system and filled gaps, but the extension is not working on my current system. And I could not get a different data to mosaic and fill the gaps. Please help
Thanks in anticipation
Does anybody know some works or system methods on the choice of the appropriate Machine Learning classifier, which is not trial and error-based?
At present, I am using various classifiers, but I would like to justify the choice of my classifier with criteria a bit more scientific than just accuracy.
Thank you very much in advanced for any help.
Like in C-H activation reaction s if I looking for a meta selective reaction, then how will I determine meta:other products from nmr of reaction mixture?
I am aware of the Novolink polymer detection system kit, Leica Biosystems. But I would like to know about other vendors for the same kit that might be better than this one.
I want to know is there any research paper in which researchers proved that refrigerants mixing with nano materials increase COP/ refrigeration effect of the system.
How can we evaluate the Noise Spectral Density(N0) of a system and what would be some typical values for N0 for a LEO satellite receiver operating at 12GHz. What would be N0 of AWNG generated by 1/sqrt(2)*[rand(1/N)+j*rand(1,N)] in MATLAB where N=Number of bits.
can any one here guid me to system or solution allow creating DB in web base interface or from web base solution and ingest the data from third party system.
Thanks in advance
is there any proper way, how to determine a signal-to-noise ratio in mass spectrometry, in particular in TGA-MS system?
And do I really need it when I already have my LOD and LOQ calculated against a sufficient amount of blanks?
Without taking the interaction into account, each site could be occupied by two electrons, one with spin up and one with spin down. Due to the interaction the electrons would then feel a strong Coulomb repulsion, which Mott argued splits the band in two: The lower band is then occupied by the first electron per site, the upper by the second. If each site is only occupied by a single electron the lower band is completely filled and the upper band completely empty, the system thus a so-called Mott insulator.
I have carbanion generated in my reaction system. If I add ferrocene derivative (ferrocene carboxaldehyde ) to this system having carbanion, Does nucleophillic attack is possible on cyclopentadienyl ring of ferrocene?
Looking for current research efforts in system science and system engineering that use interpretive structural modeling as a formal approach.
Is there any Standard ANSI/ASME flowcharts? My interest is in processes with human – machine interaction. e.g. car driving, buying in vending machine, among others.
Graphs are one the useful network modeling tools to analyse the structure and dynamic of different networks regardless of their nature or origin.
common properties of networks help you to analyse or design networks (this inspiration may arises from a social or economic network to apply in biological systems). metabolic or protein interaction networks are studied by this method and the results were conceivable.
Now the question is how graph based modeling can be practiced to study the interactions and correlations between different systems,for example interaction of metabolic networks with nervous system (of course at first,it's necessary to define such graphical models for nervous system)?
Which probabilistic mediators would be needed and what will be properties of such bridges between different cooperating systems for biological networks?
I formulated this new Content Addressable Memory (CAM) using Bloom Filters. It is called pbCAM (probabilistically-banked CAM). Its energy consumption is significantly lower than that of a traditional CAM, so, it allows much larger CAM chips (Integrated Circuits) to be built. Currently, CAMs are confined into network routers (Cisco, etc ...) having much larger CAMs available, which are memory chips that address the information based on a Key (i.e., content), rather than the ADDRESS of the storage (like RAMs), this could have a huge impact in the way we program. Although using Bloom filters in databases is nothing novel, the way this idea is formulated achieves significant energy savings by simultaneously reducing the voltage and frequency of the less-populated CAM banks, thereby achieving super-linear energy savings, which is something that cannot be done in a SQL database, i.e., pure software.
Currently, we are wired to think that, we have to know the ADDRESS OF STORAGE. So, when I create an array, say, int a, I need to address it using its known index, e.g., a. However, if I could address it using its CONTENT and didn't care about where it was stored, like the RUBY language does (i.e., a["Name"] instead of a), and this programming language didn't have a huge performance overhead like Ruby does, this could revolutionize how we view STORAGE of DATA.
What applications can you imagine that could benefit with such a CONTENT-BASED programming ? and a massively-hardware-accelerated CAM-type storage, rather than RAM-type ?
