System Cost Modeling and SysML Integration in Model - Based Systems Engineering
(Monterey, California: Naval Postgraduate School, 2017-01-18)
US DoD Application Domain Empirical Software Cost Analysis
General software cost parameters such as size, effort distribution, and productivity are necessarily imprecise due to variations by domain. To improve this situation, empirical software cost analysis using the primary US ...
Total Ownership Cost Models for Valuing System Flexibility
A significant challenge in systems engineering and acquisition is to justify investments in system flexibility as opposed to buying more features or copies of a less-flexible systems. The Total Ownership Cost (TOC) has ...
Simulating Fine-Scale Marine Pollution Plumes for Autonomous Robotic Environmental Monitoring
(Frontiers in Robotics and AI, 2018-05-28)
Marine plumes exhibit characteristics such as intermittency, sinuous structure, shape and flow field coherency, and a time varying concentration profile. Due to the lack of experimental quantification of these characteristics ...

North Atlantic Aerosol Properties and Direct Radiative Effects: Key Results from TARFOX and ACE-2
Aerosol effects on atmospheric radiative fluxes provide a forcing function that can change the climate in potentially significant ways. This aerosol radiative Forcing is a major source of uncertainty in understanding the ...
Towards A Wider Application of the Systems Approach in Information Systems and Software Engineering
(IGI Global, 2010)
The chapter provides possible directions for the wider application of the systems approach to information systems development. Potential improvement of software development practices is linked by some leading experts to ...
Skills, the gender wage gap, and cities
(Wiley Online, 2016)
This paper links gender wage gaps with the urban wage premium. First, the study documents gender wage gaps are narrower in larger U.S. metropolitan areas in 2000 and 2010. Skill agglomerations are then considered to ...
Rooted in a Sense of Purpose
Is it possible to build business schools with a social conscience? Yes, but we must do more to integrate ethics and emphasize public sector management if we are to shape the role business education plays in the future of society.
