1st Edition

William Lewis
November 30, 1998

Most manuals assume software testing is being performed as part of a well-defined, structured development cycle based on clearly stated requirements and standards. Unfortunately, this is not often the case in the real world. Indeed, the one true constant in software development is change.PDCA/TEST...

Fusion of Neural Networks, Fuzzy Systems and Genetic Algorithms: Industrial Applications

1st Edition

Lakhmi C. Jain, N.M. Martin
November 17, 1998

Artificial neural networks can mimic the biological information-processing mechanism in - a very limited sense. Fuzzy logic provides a basis for representing uncertain and imprecise knowledge and forms a basis for human reasoning. Neural networks display genuine promise in solving problems, but a...
