Building an electronic records archive at the National Archives and Records Administration recommendations for a long-term strategy by National Research Council (U.S.)( )
6 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 380 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The federal government generates and increasingly saves a large and growing fraction of its records in electronic form. In 1998, the National Archives and Record Administration (NARA) launched its Electronic Archives (ERA) program to create a system to preserve and provide access to federal electronic records. To assist in this project, NARA asked the NRC to conduct a two-phase study to provide advice as it develops the ERA program. The first two reports (phase one) provided recommendations on design, engineering, and related issues facing the program. This report (phase two) focuses on longer term, more strategic issues including technology trends that will shape the ERA system, archival processes of the ERA, and future evolution of the system. It also provides an assessment of technical and design issues associated with record integrity and authenticity
VLSI systems and computations by H. T Kung( Book )
12 editions published in 1981 in English and Italian and held by 329 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Logical effort : designing fast CMOS circuits by Ivan Edward Sutherland( Book )
11 editions published between 1999 and 2008 in English and held by 242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The brainchild of circuit and computer graphics pioneers Ivan Sutherland and Bob Sproull, "logical effort" will change the way you approach design challenges. This book begins by equipping you with a sound understanding of the method's essential procedures and concepts - so you can apply it immediately. Later chapters explore the theory behind the method and detail its specialized applications

Using program transformations to derive line-drawing algorithms by Robert F Sproull( Book )
2 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A wide variety of line-drawing algorithms can be derived by applying program transformations to a simple, obviously correct algorithm. The transformations increase the algorithm's performance and eliminate the need for floating-point computations. Two familiar algorithms are derived in this way: Bresenham's algorithm and the digital differential analyzer (DDA). The transformations are then used to derive several highly parallel variants of Bresenham's algorithm, designed for use on displays that can generate more than one pixel at a time. The treatment shows a complete, extended example of the practical use of program transformations. Moreover, the transformations derive Bresenham's algorithm without recourse to complex geometric arguments. (Author)

Translating concurrent communicating programs into delay-insensitive circuits by Erik Brunvand( Book )
2 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Abstract: "Programs written in a subset of Occam are automatically translated into delay-insensitive circuits using syntax-directed techniques. The resulting circuits are improved using semantics-preserving circuit-to-circuit transformations. Since each step of the translation process can be proven correct, the resulting circuit behavior is a faithful copy of the original program behavior. A compiler has been constructed that automatically performs the translation and transformation."

The ultimate improvement cycle : maximizing profits through the integration of lean, six sigma, and the theory of constraints by Robert Sproull( Book )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Recognizing the need to implement quality and eliminate waste, companies embrace Lean, Six Sigma, or a combination of the two, typically taking a broad approach that seeks to remediate every process, critical or not. When this happens, efforts become distracted, improvements indefinitely delayed, and results mediocre at best. The Ultimate Improvement Cycle (UIC) integrates Lean, Six Sigma, and the Theory of Constraints into a combined strategy that will help you immediately focus your efforts on those areas that will make
