Simulation experts know very well that there are similarities between the models they build for different manufacturing systems. This article describes a module based generic model generator for discrete manufacturing systems. The module based generator was developed from a group technology (GT) classification scheme. The GT scheme uses common model features as a basis for creating generic model components. Specific user models are constructed by modifying and configuring the generic models rather than building them from scratch, thus reducing the effort and skill expected of the user in the process of model abstraction, construction, and validation/verification.


A unification model and tool support for software functional size measurement methods
Efe, Pınar; Demirörs, Onur; Department of Information Systems (2006)
Software size estimation/measurement has been the objective of a lot of research in the software engineering community due to the need of reliable size estimates. FSM Methods have become widely used in software project management to measure the functional size of software since its first publication, late 1970s. Although all FSM methods measure the functional size by quantifying the FURs, each method defined its own measurement process and metric. Therefore, a piece of software has several functional sizes ...
A gis domain framework utilizing jar libraries as components
Ödoğru, Ebru; Doğru, Ali Hikmet; Department of Computer Engineering (2005)
A Component Oriented Software Engineering (COSE) modeling environment is enhanced with the capability to import executable components and deliver applications through their composition. For this purpose, an interface layer that utilizes JAR libraries as components has been developed. Also, Domain Engineering process has been applied to Geographical Information Systems (GIS) domain and utilized towards converting the environment to a development framework. The interface layer imports JAR libraries into the C...
A pre-enactment model for measuring process quality
Güceğlioğlu, A. Selçuk; Demirörs, Onur; Department of Information Systems (2006)
Most of the process measurement studies are related with time and cost based models. Although quality is the other conventional aspect, there are no widely used models for measuring the process quality in the literature. In order to provide complementary information about the quality, a process quality measurement model has been chosen to be developed and the studies about process characteristics have been searched in the scope of the thesis. Moreover, by utilizing the similarities between process and softw...
A programming language for beginners based on Turkish syntax
Tutar, Sercan; Bozşahin, Hüseyin Cem; Department of Computer Engineering (2004)
Programming is a difficult activity because it requires thinking in a way that ordinary people are not familiar with. It becomes more complex considering the unusual and sometimes contradictory (with daily life usage) symbols when designing programming languages. This thesis introduces an experimental programming language called TPD, which is designed to reduce the syntax- and semantics-oriented difficulties to a minimum and provide a head start in programming to high school students and novice programmers ...
A composite dislocation cell model to describe strain path change effects in BCC metals
Yalçınkaya, Tuncay; Geers, M.G.D. (IOP Publishing, 2009-11-16)
Sheet metal forming processes are within the core of many modern manufacturing technologies, as applied in, e.g., automotive and packaging industries. Initially flat sheet material is forced to transform plastically into a three-dimensional shape through complex loading modes. Deviation from a proportional strain path is associated with hardening or softening of the material due to the induced plastic anisotropy resulting from the prior deformation. The main cause of these transient anisotropic effects at m...
