A Cost Model for Expressing and Estimating Ecological Costs of Software Driven Systems

The ecological footprint of our every day activities has become one of the greatest problems facing mankind today. Reducing the environmental footprint of IT, which has become a major contributor to green house gas emissions in the last decade, is therefore a major research challenge for both industry and academia. The focus of this book is to provide the foundation for expressing and estimating ecological costs of software systems in all life-cycle phases including the earliest phases of software development, thus helping all stakeholders make well-informed choices. In particular, common eco-cost drivers as well as new metrics are defined which allow meaningful and precise descriptions of ecological costs. Based on these concepts, auxiliary models are introduced which allow ecological costs and the circumstances causing them to be expressed in a unified, unambiguous, and easy-to-understand way. These models provide input to algorithmic eco-cost estimation models which show the impact of development decisions on ecological costs even in early phases of software development. Both the estimation and auxiliary models accommodate different input, allowing them to deliver the most accurate eco-cost estimates possible based on the information available. The approach presented in this book can therefore be used as the fulcrum of green software engineering methods to explore the eco-costs of applications' features and architectures at early stages in the development process before significant resources have been invested in their implementation. It therefore facilitates the creation of eco-friendlier software systems and by that contributing to the solution of one of the greatest problems facing mankind today.

Intelligent Energy Field Manufacturing

Edited by prominent researchers and with contributions from experts in their individual areas, Intelligent Energy Field Manufacturing: Interdisciplinary Process Innovations explores a new philosophy of engineering. An in-depth introduction to Intelligent Energy Field Manufacturing (EFM), this book explores a fresh engineering methodology that not only integrates but goes beyond methodologies such as Design for Six Sigma, Lean Manufacturing, Concurrent Engineering, TRIZ, green and sustainable manufacturing, and more. This book gives a systematic introduction to classic non-mechanical manufacturing processes as well as offering big pictures of some technical frontiers in modern engineering. The book suggests that any manufacturing process is actually a process of injecting human intelligence into the interaction between material and the various energy fields in order to transfer the material into desired configurations. It discusses technological innovation, dynamic M-PIE flows, the generalities of energy fields, logic functional materials and intelligence, the open scheme of intelligent EFM implementation, and the principles of intelligent EFM. The book takes a highly interdisciplinary approach that includes research frontiers such as micro/nano fabrication, high strain rate processes, laser shock forming, materials science and engineering, bioengineering, etc., in addition to a detailed treatment of the so called "non-traditional" manufacturing processes, which covers waterjet machining, laser material processing, ultrasonic material processing, EDM/ECM, etc. Filled with illustrative pictures, figures, and tables that make technical materials more absorbable, the book cuts across multiple engineering disciplines. The majority of books in this area report the facts of proven knowledge, while the behind-the-scenes thinking is usually neglected. This book examines the big picture of manufacturing in depth before diving into the details of an individual process, demonstrating how innovations are achieved. It lowers barriers to technical innovation, meets new engineering challenges, and systematically introduces manufacturing processes.
