Modeling and Analyzing the Dependability of Short Range Wireless Technologies via Field Failure Data Analysis
Gabriella Carrozza,Marcello Cinque
Journal of Software , 2009, DOI: 10.4304/jsw.4.7.707-716
Abstract: Direct analysis of failures from the field of application is an effective practice to understand the actual dependability behavior of an operational system. However, despite its wide use over the last four decades on a large variety of systems, field data analysis has rarely been applied to wireless networks. Users accessing the Internet ubiquitously through these networks are increasing, and they expect the same dependability level they already experience on wired networks. But how can we analyze the dependability level of a wireless network? The article defines a novel combined approach to model and analyze the dependability of short range wireless technologies exploiting field data. Through the experience gained from extensive failure analysis of Bluetooth networks, the paper shows how field failure data can play a key role to fill the gap on understanding the dependability behavior of wireless networks.

Abstract: Embedded and ubiquitous computing systems have considerably increased their scope of application over the past few years, and they include nowadays also mission- and business- critical scenarios. The advances call for a variety of compelling issues, including dependability, security, quality-of-service, modeling, autonomy, middleware support, new applications, real-time, development techniques, etc. This Special Issue is based on innovative ideas on embedded and ubiquitous systems discussed during the 6th IFIP Workshop on Software Technologies for Future Embedded and Ubiquitous Systems (SEUS), held in Anacapri, Capri Island (Italy), in October 2008. SEUS is a agship event of the IFIP Working Group 10.2 on embedded systems which brings together experts in the field of embedded and ubiquitous computing systems with the aim of exchanging ideas and advancing the state-of-art about the above mentioned issues. Selected papers have been invited out of the 38 papers published in the SEUS 2008 proceedings. Authors of invited papers were required to enrich their work with substantial new material with respect to the original SEUS contributions. Rigorous review of received submissions led to the selection of 12 high quality manuscripts, included in this Special Issue. The Special Issue is conceptually divided into three sections, each of them composed of four papers. The first section is about “Middleware and Applications”. Especially in ubiquitous and distributed embedded systems, middleware is a vital system part enabling various functions and features for the designated applications. The first paper of this section entitled “Exploring Delay-Aware Transactions in Heterogeneous Mobile Environments”, authored by N. Suri et al., deals with transaction handling for database, banking or stock applications on mobile embedde
On Double-Headed Relative Clauses
Guglielmo Cinque
Linguística : Revista de Estudos Linguísticos da Universidade do Porto , 2011,
Abstract: The present article documents the presence in a number of languages and language families (as well as in various child languages) of relative clauses displaying simultaneously an internal and an external head, and considers the implications of this finding for the general theory of relative clauses.
Lo studente riflessivo : l’uso di dispositivi mobili tra formazione on-the job e PLN (Personal Learning Network)
Maria Cinque
Form@re : Open Journal per la Formazione in Rete , 2013,
Abstract: La formazione rivolta ad alcune tipologie di professioni richiede, oltre all’erogazione di contenuti teorici, un periodo di training svolto direttamente sul campo sotto la supervisione di personale esperto. In questa fase l’apprendimento avviene mediante esperienza diretta, sebbene controllata , e la sua efficacia si basa non semplicemente sull’imitazione di una pratica, ma sul processo metacognitivo che su tale pratica viene attivato. Occorre per questo che il docente o il tutor conduca lo studente nel raggiungimento di capacità riflessive rispetto alla prassi messa in atto. Alcuni progetti di mobile learning svolti in contesti diversi – un policlinico universitario e una scuola alberghiera – hanno dimostrato come l’utilizzo didattico di tecnologie senza fili consenta, da un lato, di rendere esplicita la conoscenza tacita insita nelle attività di training, dall’altro di rendere meno formale l’apprendimento delle materie tradizionali. Attraverso questa prospettiva il mobile learning esce dal contesto puramente istituzionale, identificandosi come mezzo idoneo a supportare i momenti formativi che avvengono più o meno intenzionalmente nella vita quotidiana.
Intelligent Multi-Agent Based Information Management Methods to Direct Complex Industrial Systems  [PDF]
Danilo Avola, Luigi Cinque, Giuseppe Placidi
Intelligent Information Management (IIM) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/iim.2012.46038
Abstract: In recent years, the increasingly complexity of the logistic and technical aspects of the novel manufacturing environments, as well as the need to increase the performance and safety characteristics of the related cooperation, coordi-nation and control mechanisms is encouraging the development of new information management strategies to direct and man- age the automated systems involved in the manufacturing processes. The Computational Intelligent (CI) approaches seem to provide an effective support to the challenges posed by the next generation industrial systems. In particular, the Intelligent Agents (IAs) and the Multi-Agent Systems (MASs) paradigms seem to provide the best suitable solutions. Autonomy, flexibility and adaptability of the agent-based technology are the key points to manage both automated and information processes of any industrial system. The paper describes the main features of the IAs and MASs and how their technology can be adapted to support the current and next generation advanced industrial systems. Moreover, a study of how a MAS is utilized within a productive process is depicted.

Workers’ Effort: A Comparison between Capitalist and Cooperative Firms  [PDF]
Michele Alessandrini, Marcello Messori
Theoretical Economics Letters (TEL) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/tel.2016.63066
Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to compare the efficiency of capitalistic and cooperative firms by focusing on the workers’ effort in production activity, when this effort is only known to workers, thus causing information asymmetries between workers and managers of both types of firms. Therefore, our model uses a principal-agents framework with workers’ hidden actions. The agency relations are not centered on the optimal design of incentive mechanisms but on the efficient (albeit incomplete) managerial monitoring of workers’ private effort. Moreover there is a trade-off between this monitoring activity and another managerial activity, i.e. the organization of production processes. We show that, taking into account the information asymmetries that characterize our model, the cooperative firm requires less monitoring than the capitalist firm to achieve the same efficient level of workers’ effort. This allows the manager of the former firm to devote more working time to organizational activity than the manager of the latter firm. In this respect, the governance of the cooperative firm dominates that of the capitalist firm. However, both types of firms need capital to operate and face different financial constraints in terms of the capital’s purchasing cost. These financial constraints affect the cooperative firm more severely than the capitalistic firm. Our conclusion is that these two types of firms have specific strengths and weaknesses, which make it difficult to reach general analytical results in terms of their relative efficiency. Additionally, the financial constraints characterizing the cooperative firm hinder maximization of its long-term growth rate; on the other hand, this kind of firm can better exploit the virtuous circle between increases in the employment level and increases in the growth rate.

Cinque, Valdir Moreira;Bianchi, Estela Regina Ferraz;
Revista da Escola de Enfermagem da USP , 2010, DOI: 10.1590/S0080-62342010000400020
Abstract: the purpose of the present study is to identify the stressors experienced by family members during the process of organ donation, evince the most distressful moment of the process and verify the association of variable with the family members' experience. the sample consisted of 16 family members that were making the donation through a organ search organization, in s?o paulo, in 2007. a structured instrument was used, containing question addressing the family members' experience and their evaluation of the donation process. the main stressors reported were: dissatisfaction with the service (31.25%); receiving a harsh notification about the individual's brain death (62.50%); and the wait to release the body (62.50%), which was considered the most distressful moment of the process. using the phi coefficient, it was found that there was a moderate association between the variables of interest with the family's experience. in conclusion, the donation process is stressful on the family and nursing care is necessary in each stage of the process to offer support and reduce the distress on the family members.
A Continuous Improvement and Monitoring Performance System: Monitor - Analysis - Action – Review (MAAR) Charts
Vito Romaniello,Paolo Renna,Vincenzo Cinque
IBIMA Business Review , 2011,
Abstract: The research presented in this paper concerns the development of a methodology for monitoring and continuous performance improvement. The proposed approach is derived from the classical Deming cycle adapted to a real industrial environment. The approach consists of four phases: Monitor, Analysis, Action and Review (MAAR); these phases are summarized in a single information panel that allows to improve the monitoring process. This paper presents a discussion of the real case study application of the methodology in area manufacturing of ANSALDO STS S.p.A. The case study discussed here shows the application of basic principles, management tools and techniques towards performance improvement in a manufacturing plant. The innovative issues of the MAAR approach developed regard: the possibility to apply the methodology to wide fields of enterprises (as maintenance, quality management, design, financial, etc.) and the real-manufacturing orientation. The results show the real benefits obtained by the implementation of the proposed methodology.
