...Civil Engineering has been an aspect of life since the beginnings of human existence. The earliest practices of Civil engineering may have commenced between 4000 and 2000 BC in Ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia (Ancient Iraq) when humans started to abandon a nomadic existence, thus causing a need for the construction of shelter. During this time, transportation became increasingly important leading to the development of the wheel and sailing. Until modern times there was no clear distinction between civil engineering and architecture, and the term engineer and architect were mainly geographical variations referring to the same person, often used interchangeably. The construction of Pyramids in Egypt (circa 2700-2500 BC) might be considered the first instances of large structure constructions. In the 18th century, the term civil engineering was coined to incorporate all things civilian as opposed to military engineering. The first engineering school, The National School of Bridges and Highways, France, was opened in 1747. The first self-proclaimed civil engineer was John Smeaton who constructed the Eddystone Lighthouse. In 1771, Smeaton and some of his colleagues formed the Smeatonian Society of Civil Engineers, a group of leaders of the profession who met informally over dinner. Though there was evidence of some technical meetings, it was little more than a social society. In 1818, world’s first engineering society, the Institution of Civil Engineers was founded in London, and......

...Requirements Harvesting A large project in information technology can be long, difficult, and very frustrating. Many projects are either abandonded, put on hold, or even stopped due to problems that come up along the way. While there may be dozens of reason for these types of project failures, I am going to discuss one common cause. This is the painful task of gathering requirements. Paul Glen, a blogger for, offers a different approach. Requirements Negotiation Typically the process of gathering requirements involves sitting down with the stakeholders and getting a list of all the items they want to be provided once the project is complete. It is not uncommon for items to get added along the way or even removed. Changes in requirements can cause major problems with the success of the project. The problem is the mindset and approach to requirements gathering. Gathering implies that the requirements are already out there somewhere waiting to be picked up. (Glen 2011) “What's common in all these images of gathering is that there's something out there to be collected, like crops, shells, or people, and that those things are already whole and complete.” (Glen 2011) Instead of gathering requirements, the process should be more of a long and in-depth discussion on the items in an effort to negotiate what requirements can and will be provided. “Successful projects begin not with a harvest, but with a difficult set of discussions on what should be done.”......

...Requirements The manufacturing plant that the author works for would benefit from complete barcode capabilities as stated in the author’s previous paper. This paper will explain the processes that are needed in to find requirements for new software. What is needed is to find out what a system requirement is by asking questions within the organization. According to Wright, “a system requirement is a property that is essential for an IT system to perform its functions” (Wright, 2007). I will explain these requirements by looking at three areas within the organization. First there is a business requirement, user requirements, and lastly functional requirements. Business Requirements Business requirements are described as the objectives of the business. This answers the questions as to why the company is taking on the project. “The requirements grow out of the vision for the product. This vision is driven by goals and objectives of the company. This is a long-term view of what the product can accomplish for the users and the company” (Gottesdiener, 2008). For instance as stated earlier L-3 receiving area needs a barcode capability for one it will help the department stay on top of shipments that come into the area. Second, it will also allow less mistakes and higher accuracy for inventory. Third, it will increase the staff’s accessibility to other jobs within the department. Last, it will help the customer. These are just a few examples on how it will help the......

Project teams can take several small, easy steps to improve requirements to the point where they’re good enough. But every project is different. Your team might need to take steps that wouldn’t be right in other situations. The basic steps listed here, roughly in order, demand nothing more than a whiteboard or a pen and paper. Requirements management tools and specialized models can help later on. where software is just a (large) component. Later, you can analyze each interface in detail. Step 1: Mission and scope If you don’t know where you’re going, you’re not likely to end up there, said Forrest Gump. Is your mission clear? Write a short statement of what you want your project to achieve. Out of that will grow an understanding of the project’s scope. The scope will develop as you more clearly understand exactly what achieving the mission entails. A traditional context diagram is a good tool for describing scope in a simple outline. Unlike a use-case summary diagram, it indicates interfaces and the information or materials that must come in or out of them, rather than just roles (that is, UML actors). This becomes especially...

...INSULATORS: AN IDEAL FOR ELECTRICAL SAFETY By: Kirby Emmanuel C. Oraiz Frank Joseph P. Ruiz Ramel Joseph A. Derecho University of San Carlos Talamban Campus Nasipit, Talamban, Cebu City, Cebu INTRODUCTION: Science and technology are in continuous development. This leads to ever more demanding and intelligent technology. The demands made on modern materials are increasing with the same dynamism. The features that are demanded include greater strengths for material-saving constructions, lighter components for energy saving, higher quality for more security and longer service life. After all, cost-effectiveness plays a crucial role. Ceramic materials have in the past made an important contribution to this process of innovation. Requirements for the successful application of ceramics include constructions that are appropriate to the materials and the manufacturing processes, as well as appropriate applications. The point is not that common materials can be displaced, but rather that customised products allow completely new solutions. In order to make intelligent and effective use of the properties of ceramics, it is not sufficient simply to take an existing structural component and to replace it in every detail with a ceramic part. A drawing of the component used so far, however, together with a great deal of supplementary information, can show the way to the mass-produced ceramic component. Thermal, electrical, mechanical loading and the chemical environment......

...people all over the world. One path a person may choose to take is Software Engineering. What exactly is Software Engineering? Software Engineering is the study of development, maintenance and utilization of engineering to the design software. Projects that are larger than others require the system software to be built by a team or teams of engineers. In chapter 1 of Software Engineering Essentials Volume1: The Development Process the topic we discuss is Software Requirements. First, you have to understand what exactly software requirements are. The whole goal of the requirements phase in software development is being able to accurately decide what to build and then being able to document the result properly. All system requirements should be determined before the system design process. System design is the process where you come to the conclusion of which parts of the requirements will be designated to hardware and which to software. If you are not careful, you can easily run into a requirement problem. Not only are requirement problems continual they can be expensive. Requirements errors account for 70 percent to 85 percent of the rework costs on a software project (Wiegers 2003). In the article “Software requirements engineering: what, why, who, when and how”, “If one finds a requirements defect during the requirements phase and it costs one unit to fix (for example, three engineering hours, $500), the cost of fixing that same defect will typically increase......

...ENB100 - ENGINEERING & SUSTAINABILITY Progress Report (due in Wk12 Tutorial) ! Student Name: ! Student # Your task: Your role as a professional engineer will require you to assess multiple solutions for a single problem. Often, the suitability of the solution has little to do with the price or the provider but more to do with ‘fitness for purpose’. As such, it is vital that a structured process is used to identify the most appropriate solution. This process is called an evaluation matrix. ! Your task is two-fold. Firstly, in your own words, you need to define the term ‘evaluation matrix’. Make sure your definition relates to the engineering context and provide robust references. Secondly, you need to develop suitable criteria for use in your final project. Ensure you use clear and measurable criteria that take into account the client needs. ! ! ! 1. Definition An Evaluation matrices are used in the engineering profession as a tool to evaluate a number of different types of options against a prioritised criteria. If the design ideas do not meet the criteria then two different levels of the evaluation matrices can be used. The first level effectively acts as a filter with each different option evaluating it against the mandatory criteria. (UCLA, 1-2, 2014) para The design options that meed these mandatory criteria then go on to the second level with involves them being evaluated against prioritised criteria. This is vital this......

...Central Philippine University Jaro, Iloilo City School of Graduate Studies ACCIDENT CAUSATION THEORIES AND CONCEPTS (MENGR 711) In Partial Fulfilment to the Requirements of the Degree of Master in Engineering Submitted by: *** MENGR 711 Student Submitted to: *** Professor Date Submitted: October 1, 2015 All of us individuals must be obliged to be aware why accidents do happen in construction. Generally it is because of physical hazards which includes excessive noise and vibration, inadequate lighting, exposure to radiation, slippery surfaces, etc., environmental hazards is another reason such pollution, storm, earthquakes, etc., as well as human factors, even no safety regulations and lastly poor communication within, between, and among various trades working on a job site. An accident is defined as an unintended and unplanned occurrence that results in a negative effect. Accident causation theories have been developed in an attempt to predict accidents and thus prevent their occurrence. So far there has not been an accident prevention theory that has been universally accepted. They have however served in some preventative measures in some cases. For the record, an accident is technically anything that happens by chance or misfortune. This definition provides two important points. First, accidents are unavoidable as a whole; the chance of one occurring will virtually always be present. Second, the chance of an accident occurring......

An Experience of Principled Negotiation in Requirements Engineering

...AWRE’2002 215 An Experience of Principled Negotiation in Requirements Engineering David W. Bustard School of Computing and Information Engineering, University of Ulster Coleraine, BT52 1SA, Northern Ireland Abstract When considering ways of improving requirements engineering, or indeed any aspect of software development, it is often possible to build on relevant experience in other disciplines. In particular, in relation to the human side of reaching agreement on requirements, Principled Negotiation seems to offer a good framework for the process involved. This paper summarises the main concepts of Principled Negotiation and reports on an experience of its use over several years in helping Environmental Health Departments in Northern Ireland introduce IT systems. The relationship between Principled Negotiation and Soft Systems Methodology, a general problem solving strategy built on systems thinking concepts, is also considered briefly. Keywords: Principled Negotiation, Soft Systems Methodology, System Change Introduction In the preface to his classic text on the management of software development, Brooks (1975) starts with the statement that “In many ways, managing a computer programming project is like managing any other undertaking—in more ways than most programmers believe. But in many other ways it is different—in more ways than most professional managers expect.” This reminds developers that software can largely be treated like any......
