Surviving the CFATS Site Security Plan – Tips for Inspection and Resubmission

March 24, 2011 8:43 am | by Tyco

As the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) moves forward with the Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards (CFATS), the program continues to evolve. This white paper describes the ongoing CFATS compliance process (which is a combination of technical, procedural, and personnel security) and also provides insight regarding how to develop or revise a comprehensive Site Security Plan (SSP) and prepare for a CFATS Authorization Inspection (AI). Recommendations are relevant to SSPs for all tier levels and should be considered for a facility's initial SSP submission and/or any required SSP resubmission.

Four key strategies for enabling innovation in the age of smart

March 23, 2011 12:25 pm | by IBM

"Smart products have changed the way manufacturers approach developing of complex products. Get the top four ways your organization can use an integrated product management process to thrive on a smarter planet in this informative paper. Product innovation has evolved over the past few years. In the past, innovation relied primarily on advancements in hardware and electronics, but now innovation is dependent on software. In addition, this evolution also involves product engineering being primarily managed within a single company moving to a more collaborative model, involving design partners and suppliers. As a result, innovative product development requires an approach that supports tight collaboration and increasingly complex value chains — an approach IBM calls integrated product management (IPM). To learn more, download this white paper."

"Get answers about how to address quality within product line engineering frameworks, with a focus on these key points:- How your business is impacted when quality management, software testing and the product delivery process are not kept in-line.- How focusing on quality can help bring your software and hardware delivery tools into alignment the software.- The processes and methodologies that help create a robust support environment."


Delivering a smarter planet: an exploration of systems of systems

March 23, 2011 12:04 pm | by IBM

The emergence of ultra-large scale Systems of Systems promises efficiencies and capabilities for the creation and delivery of societal services unimaginable 10 years ago. Such systems have, as parts, not only information management systems but also cyber physical systems such as power grids, emergency response systems, water and sewer systems, and so on. This brave new world requires ways of thinking, planning, development, delivery, deployment and operation that differ widely from those of conventional systems. Systems of systems have chaotic interactions that are too complex to fully engineer in the traditional sense, yet must offer 100% reliability, even in the presence of failures. These systems bring not only promise, but also challenge and opportunity. New ways to reason about reliability, safety, and security are needed to ensure success. With the Smarter Planet initiative, IBM is tackling the exciting possibilities and addressing the needs of this space. This white paper will help you better understand the opportunities and challenges related to large-scale systems of systems by examining the evolution of systems and emerging issues related to creating smarter systems.

The invisible thread: driving innovation through software in smart products

March 23, 2011 12:00 pm | by IBM

Get the help your organization needs to link product paths into an intelligent whole, using software as the invisible thread to make it happen. This white paper examines software delivery for smart products, plus strategies for turning software development evolution into a business practice, and more.

Electromagnetic Safety In Wireless Communications & Bio-Medical Technologies

March 21, 2011 11:04 am | by ANSYS

In wireless-communication and bio-medical technologies, no device can be brought to market without proof that it satisfies safety standards related to Specific Absorption Ratio (SAR). In the case of hand-held devices such as cellular phones, the concern is often about power density absorbed by the brain. In other applications, such as radio transmitters, Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) , or medical implants transmitting data wirelessly, electromagnetic power can be absorbed by any organ. Ensuring that safety standards are met is essential for any equipment manufacturer. In this white paper, we will show how this can be done with ANSYS HFSS

Electromagnetic Compatibility Considerations For Switched Mode Power Supplies

March 18, 2011 11:48 am | by CUI

Switched Mode Power Supplies (SMPS) generate Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) by virtue of their inherent design characteristics. Internal SMPS circuits can generate undesirable emissions that are rich in harmonics and cause electrical interference both internally to the circuit in which the power supply is installed, and to other electronic equipment in the vicinity of the emission source. This paper examines the rules and regulations governing control of EMI, discusses types of noise generated by SMPS, and provides basic guidance for EMI mitigation.

Direct Digital Manufacturing Part 1: What Is Direct Digital Manufacturing?

March 16, 2011 1:02 pm | by Stratasys

The use of additive fabrication processes is what differentiates direct digital manufacturing (DDM) from conventional manufacturing methods, and it is from these technologies that unique advantages and opportunities arise.  

Choosing A Servo Architecture: What’s Best For Your Application?

March 16, 2011 12:08 pm | by Bosch Rexroth

With an integrated motor/drive system, units can be daisy-chained off a single power supply, dramatically reducing the cabling and associated installation costs.

Avoiding Headaches: Selecting The Right HMI

March 16, 2011 11:45 am | by Bosch Rexroth

Customers might not know of all the requirements at the start of a project, so it may be wise to leave a little expansion room for additional memory or function keys, or providing a color display even though the project may not explicitly call for it.
