  1. 1. Product guarantees and liability rules : an economic analysis

    Author : Hillman Soeria-Atmadja; Stockholms universitet; []

    Abstract : This study is an economic analysis of product guarantees and liability rules as devices for protecting consumers against risks of product failure, ranging from simple product malfunctioning to product-related injuries. It attempts to shed light on consumer policy issues that are raised by market inefficiencies due to unequal access to product information between consumers and producers. READ MORE

  2. 2. Resource budgeting as a tool for reduced development cost for embedded real-time computer systems

    Author : Mattias Wecksten; Högskolan i Halmstad; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Real-time systems; Embedded; Resource budgeting; Design tool; Tightness optimization; Guarantees;

    Abstract : Wouldn’t it be great if there were a systematic method for derivation of non functional constraints available at design time that made it possible to verify design and make implementa tion a much clearer task? This kind of methods are needed since systems of increasing com plexity has to be developed, and the cost for failing has proven to bee too high. The problem is how to derive the design time constraints into implementation time constraints, maintaining the traceability for the individual constraints, and early on get indications whether a project is about to fail or not.

    Abstract : A network is generally a collection of different hardware-based network devices carrying out various network functions, (NF). These NF implementations are special purpose and expensive. Network function virtualization (NFV) is an alternative which uses software-based implementation of NFs in inexpensive commodity servers.
