Speech Title: Consumer Electronics and Green Technology Sustainability for Facilities Management in Electronics Retail Sectors

Abstract: This research concerns Consumer Electronics and Green Technology Sustainability for Facilities Management in Electronics Retail Sectors. The research demonstrates the benefits of Consumer Electronics driven Facilities Management (CEdFM) and emphasised that it may be realized in a number of ways. The approach in this research work, given the immaturity of the Consumer Electronics driven Facilities Management field, is exploratory and descriptive. This research treats the claims of the benefits made by proponents of various Consumer Electronics driven Facilities Management (CEdFM) approaches, and the application of such approaches to the electronics retail sectors. The research gives a means of addressing the questions "What Consumer Electronics driven Facilities Management practices are used by certain Electronic retailers, what benefits do they identify, and how do these benefits compare to the stances taken in the Consumer Electronics driven Facilities Management and Electronic retailing literatures?" One feature of the CEdFM literature that receives particular attention here is the contrast some see between traditional Facilities Management practices and the emerging set of Consumer Electronics driven Facilities Management possibilities. Retailing, and in particular, electronic retailing is chosen as the sector for study, in order to provide a Consumer Electronics - literate background where these two contrasting sets of claims might be investigated. Green Technology Sustainability remains an essential aspect of providing pedagogical portfolio for delivering Consumer Electronics driven Facilities Management that will enable the achievement of energy savings and environmental sustainability in the business and industrial sectors. The issue of virtual usability and awareness management strategy may result in achieving excellence in energy efficiency and usage, environmental considerations and energy re-use strategic models. The return on investment (ROI) as strategic outcome of the model may restore organizations with huge energy wastage without thinking of cost, environmental impact and carbon emissions. This research aims to identify the problems, and investigate the technological gap and management set back in terms of resource utilization within the UK Consumer Electronics driven Facilities Management companies. As the key research intentions stated that this research investigation is based on an assumption that: 'there is a significant gap between the Consumer Electronics driven Facilities Management based approach and the traditional facilities management practices due to low level of investment in Research and Development (R&D) and the short-term views of company management on capital investment and the returns that Consumer Electronic retailers see as immediately required'. The British economy grows at a European rate. To bring Britain to the level of technology enjoyed by competitors in Consumer Electronics driven Facilities Management companies will require high investment in Consumer Electronics industries.

Speech Title: Adaptive Digital Filters - Theory and Applications

Abstract: This talk will cover basic theory and some applications of a special group of algorithms and techniques used for digital signal processing known as adaptive digital filters. Those filters are different from the ordinary, fixed digital filters in a sense that they can change their behaviour and properties during the operation by changing its coefficients. This leads to interesting properties of those algorithms and wide range of applications. Main theory and rules behind the adaptive coefficients change will be described in this talk and the main equations used to implement some basic adaptive algorithms given. Four main configurations in which those filters can be employed will be described and some of the applications such are active noise control and system identification explained and demonstrated at the end of the talk. Finally, some interesting industrial and commercial applications of adaptive filters including noise cancellation headphones, electrocardiography and medical imaging and similar will be discussed and demonstrated.

Speech Title: Material Handling Tools for a Discrete Manufacturing System: A Comparison of Optimization and Simulation

Abstract: The improvement of the performance of material handling tools (MHT) and the work in process (WIP) in a discrete manufacturing system have a great importance for increasing the efficiency of the production. To this end, the static and dynamic status of MHTs is analyzed in this paper. A Markov decision process (MDP) is used to model the MHT problems. The quantified relationships between MHTs and WIP will be discussed within the CONWIP (constant WIP) and Little's law methodologies. A dynamic programming (DP) based algorithm is developed to determine a solution for the MDP model. To reduce the computational complexity of the DP algorithm, the states are grouped to iterate appropriately with different priorities of the states. Computational experiments are conducted in a discrete semiconductor factory and the proposed MDP+DP method is compared with simulation. The computational results show that the developed method produces rather good feasible solutions.

Abstract: The main constraint of most personal consumer electronic devices is not computational power, but rather their energy consumption. These devices rely in fact on fast multi-core platforms with powerful accelerators and could be even exploited better, if it were not to the stringent constraints imposed by batteries.
The research community has widely addressed the issue of of the energy-efficiency in electronic devices since at least 20 years, by introducing various solutions from the device to the system level; however, for a number of reasons in most cases these ideas did not find their way into commercial products in spite of theirs.
In this talk we will overview the approaches that are more promising for their deployment in consumer electronic devices, by quantifying their expected benefit and their economic sustainability .
