Abstract

It is important for small growing textile companies to make key decisions based on accurate and reliable information about the present production process and how future changes could affect them. Using traditional mathematical methods it is not possible to accurately and reliably reflect the real stochastic behaviour of processes and activities carried out in this industry. There are, however, information technologies such as the computer simulation technique that allow such information to be obtained taking this behaviour into account.he research carried out a simulation study of the garment making process of a small textile company in order to propose a better distribution of resources by experimenting with a simulation model of the process, In addition, some of the quantitative information obtained with this technique is presented. The results obtained show that making changes in assigning tasks and resources reduces the production time of a batch of 100 units in one hour and reduces approximately 30 minutes the average time that a unit remains in the system. All the information was obtained by means of a simulation model verified and validated without the need to experience such changes with the real system.

Abstract

GitHub is a platform that provides hosting for software development version control using Git. It features an application programming interface to allow the software to interact with the platform. The enormous quantity of information Hosted in GitHub may be useful to make studies about the current presence of development tools in the open-source software development community. However, the search engine has restrictions that make it impossible to issue complex queries to the platform. In this report, it is described as an object-oriented and extensible solution, named QuantityEr, to obtain the number of search results of complex queries to GitHub by using the inclusion-exclusion principle. The mathematical definitions, as well as related concepts, are presented. The mathematical model is discussed. The application of general design and used development tools are presented. Also, the results of the execution examples are showed. It is concluded that the treated problem has been solved although more work may be done to improve the solution.

Abstract

In our work we conducted a study for solving differential equations an application to modeling in a particular case of the biopharmaceutical sector, which was necessary at the time realize the importance of the application of this drug in a disease that became a pandemic Worldwide. In this problem the impact of zidovudine (azidothymidine or AZT) described on the survival of those who develop acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) infection with the Human Immunodeficiency Virus. For the solution of this model it is has an ordinary differential equation of first order with initial values on which the separation of variables is applied to obtain the real solution analytically and apply numerical methods 3 (Euler, Improved Euler and Runge Kuta 4) using MATLAB mathematical wizard to calculate approximate solutions. Finally, we show the results of the methods, the absolute and relative errors of each and a comparison with the analytical solution and their respective tables and graphs.

Abstract

The implementation of any software development process involves the consumption of critical resources. Software engineers cannot experiment with different development processes before starting them in real projects, due to the time that would entail and the amount of elements that are involved, so it is vital to have tools that allow the pre-visualization of the results of executing the software development process and how the environmental variables affect it, thus being able to anticipate under what conditions the software development process will be deployed. This paper presents the modelling and simulation of a software development process using System Dynamics (SD), which allows the graphical representation of the elements intervening in the software process, and the incorporation of as many relevant elements as possible. As a software costs estimation reference, the COCOMO estimation model was used; which beyond being reliable has a theoretical-practical foundation. As an ideal, and real, software process system, the Craig Larman Software Process model was chosen, also known as the Larman Method. The simulation model developed here, allows one to make some initial estimation of the software process and its elements’ behavior in the course of the simulation time. This is possible thanks to the observation and study of the system’s state variables, empowering one to discern about the effect of changes in the parameters on the general process, hence, carrying out relevant and interesting scenario studies. This model becomes a tool for supporting Software Project Management teams and enterprises whose business care on Technological Projects Management.

Fingerprints indexing component based on global features

Fingerprints indexing component based on global features

Abstract

The fingerprint orientation field is a widely used feature for developing indexing strategies. Such feature brings stability and decreases the response times during the identification process. The use of attribute relational graphs and dynamic masks can exploit the features provided by the partitioning scheme. The penetration index and the error rate for each of the proposed strategies were determined. To verify the results obtained were used the databases provided by the Fingerprint Verification Competition. Both search schemes reveal the facilities offered by the orientation field for guiding the searching process; reducing the number of comparisons in 53.24%; proving its stability against different fingerprint image qualities. Based on the results, it was proven that the adoption of such indexing strategies will reduce the response time in the identification module proposed by the Identification and Digital Security Center at the University of Informatics Sciences.

Keywords: attribute relational graphs, dynamic masks, fingerprints indexing, orientation field
