Topic: Process (computing)


In the News (Wed 19 Jun 19)

  
  Process (computing) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In computing, a process is a running instance of a program, including all variables and other states.
It is usual to associate a single process with a main program, and 'daughter' processes with any spin-off, parallel processes, which behave like asynchronous subroutines.
However, if the process attempts to access code or data on disk, then it will be suspended while that content is moved into physical memory through a process known as paging.

 Process (general) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Identification of a process is a subjective task, because whole Universe demostrates one continuous universal process.
A process may be identified by the changes it creates in the properties of one or more objects under its influence.
A process may be categorized as singular, recurrent, or periodic.

 After Hours Computing: Our Design Process
The "Story Boarding" process helps you take the idea from your head and place in on a medium that can be shared with the developers.
By the end of the process the general content of each page and the flow between the pages should be fully defined.
Two approaches to this are to use a word processing program to develop your outline or to perform a "cut and paste" to a physical storyboard.

 WebSphere Application Server: A foundation for on demand computing
Web-based computing is, in some sense, a natural extension of the multitiered distributed computing model, whereby the presentation logic has been relocated in the middle tier of the distributed computing topology and drives the interaction with the end user through fixed-function devices in the user's presence.
For the most part, information computing is in principle a cost of doing business—a necessary activity to remove the tedium of repetitive tasks or to assist employees to perform their jobs.
They need to manage their computing resources more efficiently to be able to share resources over a broader range of applications and to be able to dynamically adjust the allocation of those resources to different applications as demand for each application fluctuates throughout the day.

 process - a definition from Whatis.com
Like a task, a process is a running program with which a particular set of data is associated so that the process can be kept track of.
A process can initiate a subprocess, which is a called a child process (and the initiating process is sometimes referred to as its parent).
A child process is a replica of the parent process and shares some of its resources, but cannot exist if the parent is terminated.

 Computing in Instructional Process
Twenty-nine percent of the faculty surveyed used the computer in a course.
Seventy-three percent of the student body is enrolled in a course that uses computing (there are 184 such courses).
Students categorize the use of computing in courses as "integral" to the course and feel that it "quantitatively" improves the course.

 Learn business process modeling basics for the analyst
A process element is an artifact asset that defines a segment of a process which is designed and managed to be reusable within BP models.
As Figure 2 shows, an analyst creates various process elements in the appropriate editor (for example, a use process editor for the graphical representation of a BP flow, consisting of activities and the connections between them).
Processes: Processes are a sequence of activities, conditions that dictate when these activities will be performed, resources required to perform activities, and the data flows between activities and interaction with services.

 Modernizing Bridge Safety Inspection with Process Improvement & Mobile Computing
The research determined that the inspection process is readily transformable from one that relies on marking up paper reports in the field and then returning to the office for semi-manual reporting to one that is electronically assisted using mobile PC’s in the areas of field data capture, automated bridge inventory updates, and semi-automated report production.
While this process is convenient for the inspector in terms of initial data entry, one weakness is the inefficiency in gathering widely diffused data.
For process transformational purposes all three inspection functions are considered essential components of the whole inspection process and each must be addressed and integrated into the whole for process transformation to succeed.

 Meet the experts: Lennart Frantzell demystifies the autonomic computing integration process
The first step in our engagement process is to look at the architecture of the application and determine how this architecture, and consequently, the Business Partner, can benefit from autonomic computing.
In general, autonomic computing by itself is a "closed loop" scenario (we have the GLA, the CBE, and so on); however, in most large-scale implementations, you want to really go beyond that and tie into existing systems-management software.
Their customers are often deployed with Tivoli, and we will add to that an autonomic computing facility, kind of a "bridge" if you will, a conduit between the Sana application and the Tivoli TEC, which fits in very nicely with the existing architecture.

 Business Process Management Suites | BPM Rules! | July 7, 2005 | Network Computing   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
Business processes are governed by a plethora of rules, which determine how tasks are routed, which task will be executed next, and how long the process can wait for a response from another system or human being.
Working processes continued to execute based on the version deployed when they were launched, while new processes executed based on the new version.
All the products tested provide operational metrics, such as process execution times, number of times a process has executed, and which user executed how many tasks, as well as the means to track more business-centric stats, such as the value of a process as determined by the process data.

With business-process computing, all these systems are seamlessly connected, so the process is completed in real time during a single interaction with the customer.
Instead of modeling their own processes, companies can take out-of-the-box processes and slightly customize them to reflect their unique approach, resulting in significant savings in time and cost.
The emergence of business-process computing means that the days of closed, monolithic application suites and proprietary integration solutions are over.

 [No title]
Microsoft's goal in dynamic computing, from a business process flow perspective, is to "create the best technology to enable process flow." Accordingly, the company positions itself as a "tool and platform provider," not a provider of the best, most-comprehensive process flow solutions.
Create a larger central repository of business process flows that can be downloaded and deployed by developers to help them solve real world process flow problems rapidly.
This is despite the fact that responding customers of all sizes view "an in-depth understanding of our unique business process requirements" to be the single most important factor (and understanding of their vertical industry requirements as one of the most important factors) as a requirement for a vendor to become a strategic vendor.
