Systems Engineering with SysML/UML: Modeling, Analysis, Design (The OMG Press)

According to the Boeing Commercial Aircraft Company, a Boeing 747-400 aircraft has a maximum gross take-off weight (including a typical 416 passengers, 171 cubic meters of freight in the cargo hold, and over 200,000 kg of fuel) of nearly 400,000 kg. Four behemoth engines push the bird at up to 88 percent of the speed of sound for unbelievable distances, up to 13,500 km, without refueling. The length of the aircraft alone (45 m) is longer than the Wright brothers ’ entire first flight.

But these amazing statistics, after 30 years finally to be eclipsed by even larger passenger aircraft, are nothing compared to the complexity of the system of systems which makes up the Boeing 747-400. The aircraft ’ s electrical systems comprise some 274 km of wiring alone; high-strength aluminum and titanium parts are designed to work both standing still and heated by rapidly passing air. Backup systems keep navigation and life-sustaining systems running if primary systems fail; and even the in-flight entertainment system is one of the more complex systems on earth. In fact, the Boeing 747-400 comprises some 6 million parts, about half of which are simply fasteners like screws and bolts. It ’ s no wonder that a Boeing spokesman once quipped, “ We view a 777 as a collection of parts flying in close proximity. ” As a frequent flyer, I constantly and fervently hope that that proximity goal is respected!

All of these facts reflect a fact that all engineers understand: complexity is difficult to manage, and most interesting systems are complex. Worse, the compounding of systems into systems of systems—e.g., back to our airplane, the electrical, hydraulic, propulsion, lift surface, life support, navigation, and other systems of aircrafts— tends to introduce new complexities in the form of unexpected

Replication: Theory and Practice
Replication: Theory and Practice

Replication is a topic of interest in the distributed computing, distributed systems, and database communities. Although these communities have traditionally looked at replication from different viewpoints and with different goals (e.g., performance versus fault tolerance), recent developments have led to a convergence of these different...

T-SQL in One Hour a Day, Sams Teach Yourself
Many excellent books about T-SQL are available, so how is this one different? In talking to the many people I meet in my travels around the country, I have heard one common complaint. Instead of the host of wonderful books available to expert database administrators (DBAs), most SQL Server readers yearn for a book targeted toward the...
