Risk Management: Achieving Higher Maturity & Capability Levels through the LEGO Approach
2016 Edition, October 1, 2016 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

A common challenge in life is to evaluate and deal with risks. Even though Risk management is fundamental to any activity, it is too often evaluated and managed from a qualitative rather than a quantitative perspective. In order to improve, too often organizations are seeking...

The LEGO approach for achieving max-min capacity in reciprocal multipoint networks
2000 Edition, Volume 1, January 1, 2000 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

A simple approach is presented for locally enabled global optimization (LEGO) of multinode networks with reciprocal internode transmit and receive channel responses. The method is applied here to the maximization of the minimum capacity achievable at each...

The LEGO approach for achieving max-min capacity in reciprocal multipoint networks
2001 Edition, Volume 1, January 1, 2001 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

Locally enabled, globally optimized (LEGO) wireless networks offer paradigm shifting performance enhancements for wireless networks equipped with multiple antennas. In this paper attention is focused on some convergence aspects of an improved version of the LEGO algorithm. A...

Mixed LEGO-EFIE approach for the analysis of radiating elements and anisotropic media
2014 Edition, April 1, 2014 - European Association on Antennas and Propagation (EurAAP)

We describe a domain decomposition strategy based on the combination of linear embedding via Green's operators (LEGO) and an electric-field integral equation (EFIE) for solving radiating conducting elements in the presence of anisotropic media. Furthermore, in order to...

Combined LEGO-eigencurrent approach for enhanced solution of electrically large 2-D EBG structures
2010 Edition, April 1, 2010 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

We combine the linear embedding via Green's operators (LEGO) and the eigencurrent expansion method (EEM) to efficiently deal with 2-D electrically large electromagnetic band-gap (EBG) structures. In LEGO, the composite structure is broken up into elements called...

SEI capability maturity model's impact on contractors
1995 Edition, Volume 28, January 1, 1995 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

The Software Engineering Institute's Capability Maturity Model measures software development companies' ability to produce quality software within budget and on schedule. The CMM rates software development companies and government agencies at one of five maturity...

Achieving higher SEI levels
1994 Edition, Volume 11, July 1, 1994 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

Two years or more can pass between formal SEI (Software Engineering Institute) assessments using the Capability Maturity Model (CMM). An organization seeking to monitor its progress to a higher SEI level needs a method for internally conducting incremental...

Roadmapping as a Platform for Developing Management Toolkits: A Collaborative Design Approach with the LEGO Group
2017 Edition, July 1, 2017 - Portland International Conference on Management of Engineering and Technology

Roadmapping holds a unique position in industrially-relevant management tools: it can act as an integrative central hub to which other tools easily connect. Unfortunately, this type of application is generally not considered. Therefore, we are championing roadmapping as a platform for...

Hybrid LEGO-CBF method for the analysis of locally complex metallic structures
2017 Edition, September 1, 2017 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

An enhanced version of the Linear Embedding via Green's Operators (LEGO) method is introduced to analyze complex 3-D metallic structures located inside a single electromagnetic (EM) brick. For the sake of computational efficiency and memory storage requirement the...

Achieving higher levels of CMMI maturity using simulation
2002 Edition, Volume 2, January 1, 2002 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

Simulation and the Capability Maturity Model Integrated (CMMI) are both fundamentally process focused with common objectives. Both are tools used to advance process capabilities and performance. Can organizations apply simulation to their business practices to help them...
