  • Taylor, Neil; Price, Chris (2002-04)
    Failure mode and effects analysis (FMEA) is typically performed by a team of engineers working together. In general, they will only consider single point failures in a system. Consideration of all possible combinations of ...
  • Hughes, Nigel; Chou, Enxi; Price, Chris; Lee, Mark (1999-05)
    This paper considers the application of functional modelling to the automated production of FMEAs for mechanical systems. We consider how a functional model can be generated algorithmically from the geometric and assembly ...
  • Ratcliffe, Mark; Moström, Jan Erik; Eckerdal, Anna; McCartney, Robert; Zander, Carol (2006)
    This paper examines software designs produced by students nearing completion of their Computer Science degrees. The results of this multi-national, multi-institutional experiment present some interesting implications for ...
  • Ratcliffe, Mark; Thomas, Lynda (2004)
    This paper describes a project that aims to enhance student learning of Object Oriented Programming through the development of an interactive learning environment. Through a series of connected experiments we have sought ...
  • Thomasson, Benjy; Ellis, Wayne; Thomas, Lynda; Ratcliffe, Mark (2003)
    This paper describes a project being undertaken at the University of Wales, Aberystwyth that captures students’ designs in an attempt to improve the pedagogy. To enhance their understanding of object oriented programming, ...
  • Garrett, Simon; Lee, Mark (1999-02)
  • Shen, Qiang; Keppens, Jeroen (2004)
    Probabilistic abduction extends conventional symbolic abductive reasoning with Bayesian inference methods. This allows for the uncertainty underlying implications to be expressed with probabilities as well as assumptions, ...
  • Snooke, Neal; Price, Chris (1997-06-03)
    Qualitative reasoning about electrical systems has reached a level of achievement which allows it to be used for applications on realistic automotive circuits. The type of circuits for which it is most effective can be ...
  • Lee, Mark (1999)
    This paper explores the fundamental nature of the technology known as Model-Based Reasoning. The central concept of representation is examined and the roles of prediction and explanation are emphasised. We argue that these ...
  • Boongoen, Tossapon; Shen, Qiang (2008-06-01)
    Aggregation operators are crucial to integrating diverse decision makers' opinion. While minimum and maximum can represent optimistic and pessimistic extremes, an Ordered Weighted Aggregation (OWA)operator is able to reflect ...
  • Price, Chris; Pugh, Dave; Snooke, Neal; Hunt, John; Wilson, Myra (1997)
    Increasing complexity of design in automotive electrical systems has been paralleled by increased demands for analysis of the safety and reliability aspects of those designs. Such demands can place a great burden on the ...
  • Zhou, Yuren; He, Jun; Nie, Qing (2009-02)
    The satisfiability problem is a basic core NP-complete problem. In recent years, a lot of heuristic algorithms have been developed to solve this problem, and many experiments have evaluated and compared the performance of ...
  • MacParthaláin, Neil Seosamh; Shen, Qiang; Jensen, Richard (2006-09-04)
    Feature Selection (FS) methods based on fuzzy-rough set theory (FRFS) have employed the dependency function to guide the FS process with much success. More recently a method has been developed which uses fuzzy-entropy ...
  • Eckerdal, Anna; Ratcliffe, Mark; McCartney, Robert; Moström, Jan Erik; Zander, Carol (2005)
    This paper examines the problem of studying and comparing student software designs. We propose semantic categorization as a way to organize widely varying data items. We describe how this was used to organize a particular ...
  • Shen, Qiang; Lee, Mark; Keppens, Jeroen (2005)
    Despite increasing interest in the development of intelligent techniques to aid in the prevention and detection of crime, an important issue that has not yet been addressed by existing work is the use of knowledge based ...
  • Keppens, Jeroen; Shen, Qiang; Price, Christopher John (2011-08-01)
    As forensic science and forensic statistics become increasingly sophisticated, and judges and juries demand more timely delivery of more convincing scientific evidence, crime investigation is becoming progressively more ...
  • Shen, Qiang; Keppens, Jeroen (2004)
    The predominant knowledge-based approach to automated model construction, compositional modelling, employs a set of models of particular functional components. Its inference mechanism takes a scenario describing the ...
  • Jensen, Richard; Shen, Qiang (Wiley-Blackwell, 2008-10-17)
    Computational Intelligence and Feature Selection provides a high level audience with both the background and fundamental ideas behind feature selection with an emphasis on those techniques based on rough and fuzzy sets, ...
  • Price, Chris (Springer Verlag, 1999)
    Diagnostic systems are among the most successful applications of knowledge-based systems (KBS) technology. This is true both in terms of the number of applications built, and in terms of the benefits which such systems ...
  • Shen, Qiang; Zhao, Ruiqing (2010-08-30)
    This paper presents an extension of the assumption-based truth maintenance system (ATMS), called “credibilistic ATMS,” which has the capability to cope with uncertain justifications and assumptions. Such justifications and ...
