” The ripple effects of too many meetings can be astonishing…But there’s hope! While a whole host of cultural changes need to take place to make meetings at your organization more productive and efficient, a few good tools can also go a long way in keeping everyone on the right track (and out of your Outlook calendar when there’s no reason for you to go there).

E-learning Platform Development Model

Authors: Sabina – Daniela AXINTE, Gabriel PETRICAIonut – Daniel BARBU

Published: ADVANCED TOPICS IN ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING – ATEE 2017

“As digital life became more intertwined with our daily activities, humans developed an increasing reliance on cloud computing to sync data between all their devices, acquired 24/7 access to information through the internet, as well as the ability to share data from anywhere using a variety of methods. Predictably, technology began to exert its influence in education, with new practices of large-scale knowledge distribution advancing from concept to reality. It did not take long before the idea of a Quality Assurance e-learning platform emerged. To create it, however, one requires an appropriate software development model.
Software systems undergo a series of transformations that represent their outset, early development, transition to production, maintenance and retirement from one generation to the next. This paper examines and clarifies a variety of techniques for understanding or modeling how these systems are developed. Subsequently, the practice through which a suitable candidate for an e-learning platform is selected will be outlined and the product plan detailed.” Read more…

Reliability Analysis of a Web Server by FTA Method

Authors: Gabriel PETRICA, Ionut – Daniel BARBU, Sabina – Daniela AXINTE, Cristian PASCARIU

Published: ADVANCED TOPICS IN ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING – ATEE 2017

“FTA (Fault Tree Analysis) is one of the most used methods for reliability analysis and to quantify the risks associated with the failures of systems. This method performs analysis of the combination of events that can lead to a critical system failure (called Top Event of the designed Fault Tree) and allows calculating the probability of failure. In this paper, has been built the Fault Tree for a Web server considering failures that may occur at hardware level (the basic components for the considered computer system). After realizing the Fault Tree, were made two types of analysis: qualitative (which led to the identification of minimal cut sets) and quantitative (this allowed the calculation of the probability of occurrence of the considered critical event – <<Web server not operational>>.” Read more…
