Reliability of Dragline’s Subsystems

Systems are functional mechanisms, intending to perform a specific task in a defined time period. During the operations of systems, it is encountered with the imperative shutdowns due to external and internal considerations. Retrospective data covering the causes of the shutdowns and their durations can help to predict the time-dependent reliability amounts of the system, detect the critical parts, and improve the maintenance and repair plans. Reliability analyses, especially common at the industries in need of minimum malfunction such as aeronautics and space industry, are also utilized in the excavation machines in mining industry with an increasing trend. This study contains the methodology to determine the reliabilities of dragline's subsystems, and so, to find the overall reliability of dragline. For this reason, recent data belonging to dragline were classified according to its subsystems; reliability calculations were performed using general renewal process.

Reliability of COSMIC Functional Size Measurement Results: A Multiple Case Study on Industry Cases
Top, Ozden Ozcan; Demirörs, Onur; Ozkan, Baris (2009-08-29)
Accuracy of the functional size is critical in software project management, since functional size is the most prevalent input for effort and cost estimation models. Functional size measurement is performed based on standardized manuals; however, the accuracy of FSM results is still based on the knowledge and cautions of the measurers. In this study we performed a multiple case study to identify the reliability of COSMIC and to observe the frequently encountered errors during functional size measurement. Pro...
Assessment of agile maturity models: a multiple case study
Özcan Top, Özden (2013-06-04)
Agile methods are welcomed by software community in recent years. The move from traditional methods to agile methods is not straightforward. Software organizations need assistance to achieve transition from traditional software development approaches to agile approaches and to improve their agile capability. During the last few years several agile maturity models/frameworks are developed to guide organizations in agile process improvement and agile adoption. In this study, we assess the strengths and weakne...
Investigating the effect of variations in the test development process: a case from a safety-critical system
TARHAN, AYÇA; Demirörs, Onur (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2011-12-01)
Variation is inherent to a process, and process management demands understanding the nature of variation in quantitative terms, for evaluation and prediction purposes. This understanding requires the identification of process indicators that build the system of variation. To utilize quantitative techniques to understand and improve a software process, more indicators are needed than in a manufacturing process. The need to identify the indicators of a software process and the lack of a generic approach to as...
Design of a variable five-axes adjustable configuration robot manipulator
YUCEL, AS; Ersak, Aydın (1994-04-14)
A robot manipulator design is presented in this paper supplying a few kinematical configurations in a single structure which is in the mean time, reconfigurable for given tasks and hence making the level of flexibility and adaptability much higher for changing working environments
Using feature models for reusability in agile methods
Jedyk, Marcin; Doğru, Ali Hikmet; Department of Computer Engineering (2011)
The approach proposed in this thesis contributes to implementing source code reuse and re-engineering techniques for agile software development. This work includes an introduction to feature models and some of the Feature Oriented Software Development (FOSD) practices to achieve a lightweight way of retrieving source code. A Feature model created during the course of following FOSD practices serves as an additional layer of documentation which represents the problem space for the developed application. This...
