  • Blog Post: Costa Concordia: Mathematical Model of the Submarine

    Hopefully the Costa Concordia won’t become a submarine, but the only ready control system design document that I could find easily was from MIT. Multivariable control system design for a submarine The copy isn’t printable since the document was generated in 1976, here is the diagram...
  • Blog Post: Costa Concordia: The Goals of Software Architecture

    With the tragedy of the Costa Concordia, design with the human in the control loop comes to mind.  A cruise ship is a large system with many moving parts and error points.  In a large mechanical system like a ship have long used computers, in the past the computers might have been the sextant...
  • Blog Post: Software Architecture: Many ways for the beginner, only a few for the master

  • Blog Post: Software Engineering: Success or no success, generally the schools aren’t going to be helpful

    Hadar Ziv, at UC Irvine, in my opinion, is the teacher you want to get to know. His specialty is loosely around software engineering, and his students are quite knowledgeable about the in and outs of system design. In Southern California another school that does a good job is California State University...
