Apple devices to boost NFC tech
September 11, 2014
Apple's move into mobile payments, announced on Tuesday with the launch of its new iPhone 6 phones and the Apple Watch, is expected to boost the wireless technology behind it − near-field communications (NFC) - say analysts and makers of the technology. All the new Apple devices will come equipped to operate its new payments service "Apple Pay", which launches in the US next month and allows users to pay for items in stores by tapping their phone on contactless card payment terminals instead of the underlying credit or debit card. For Apple Pay to work, the new devices come with a "secure element" chip and a near-field communications, or NFC, antenna. The NFC segment is dominated by NXP Semiconductors, which invented the technology with Sony.

PLM Software Selection Model for Project Management Using Hierarchical Decision Modeling With Criteria From PMBOK® Knowledge Areas
September 01, 2014
FULL TEXT Abstract: This article presents a methodology for product lifecycle management (PLM) software selection utilizing the nine knowledge areas of the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK®) (A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide, 2008). The methodology utilizes a five-process gate approach where the PLM offerings are researched, sorted, paired down, evaluated, and implemented. The primary decision model utilizes hierarchical decision modeling (HDM). Prioritizations are assigned to the PMBOK® knowledge areas utilizing a pair-wise comparison survey and then assessed across the different PLM system offerings. The proposed decision methodology is meant to serve only as a guide to assist with selection of PLM software from a project management perspective. To validate the model, several applications are presented that apply the selection methodology to different industries: semiconductor, information technology (IT), and automotive supply. Keywords: Project Management, PMBOK, Product Life-Cycle Management, Product Development, Program Management, Hierarchical Decision Modeling, Software Selection EMJ Focus Areas: Engineering Management Professsion, Knowledge Management, Program & Project Management, Technology Management

Unleashing VPF Technology
August 14, 2014
Centralised air conditioners should ideally provide comfort and energy efficiency. Variable Primary Flow systems coupled with Pressure Independent Balancing and Control Valves deliver on both counts, says Ismail Serhan Ozten of Danfoss, who presents proof to support his assertion. Infrastructure challenge It is to state the obvious that most commercial buildings have very low occupancy after office hours or during weekends. This renders operating centralised air conditioning systems during these times wasteful. The challenge is to run them efficiently. In example 1 the building has 10 floors and all of them are occupied from morning till late afternoon. During evening time, a single floor is open for business. Thus, the centralised air conditioning system that distributes air for the entire building has to work for the sake of cooling only a single floor. Modern building outlook requirements do not allow an additional air conditioning equipment to be displayed outside the building. Therefore, running a separate smaller air conditioning system is not an option. In such a scenario, the Variable Primary Flow system could be the answer.
