We, the faculty and staff of the School of Languages, Humanities, and Social Sciences, affirm our adherence to the beliefs here articulated.

Every student is a unique individual who possesses talents and potentials that must be honed and nurtured by the academic community.

Every student’s educability arises from his possession of an intellect that seeks the truth, and a will that pursues what is good.

Every student is influenced by family, community, and environment but is responsible for personal choices and decisions made freely.

In helping the student excel in his chosen field, we need to make them deeply aware of what it means to be human.

The SLHS exists to foster in the student a strong appreciation of his inherent dignity, and to move him to respect the same in others.

The goal of SLHS education is to cultivate the love for life-long learning. It seeks to help develop the ability of every student to distinguish what is true and what is good from the abundance of information, ideas, and thoughts that current day technology makes accessible to him. And, having done so, the student becomes disposed towards the intelligent use of his freedom.

SLHS education fortifies the student’s desire and ability for critical analysis and evaluation of circumstances and events around him by educating him on the timeless and unchanging truths about man and man’s existence. Armed with such ability, the student can therefore arrive at informed judgments and take prudent action on current relevant issues.

SLHS education instils in every student a strong sense of citizenship in his country and in the larger global community, and thus prepares him to work well in multi-cultural settings, in the service of the common good of society.

The prime duty of a teacher is to facilitate the acquisition of relevant and useful knowledge and…...

Software Business the developed system. Prototyping is comprised of the following steps: Requirements Definition /Collection - Similar to the Conceptualization phase of the Waterfall Model, but not as comprehensive, the information collected is usually limited to a subset of the complete system requirements Design - Once the initial layer of requirements information is collected, or new information is gathered, it is rapidly integrated into a new or existing design so that it may be folded into the prototype. Prototype Creation / Modification -The information from the design is rapidly rolled into a prototype. This may mean the creation/modification of paper information, new coding, or modifications to existing coding. Assessment - The prototype is presented to the customer for review. Comments and suggestions are collected from the customer. Prototype Refinement - Information collected from the customer is digested and the prototype is refined. The developer revises the prototype to make it more effective and efficient. System Implementation -In most cases, the system is rewritten once requirements are understood. Sometimes, the Iterative process eventually produces a working system that can be the cornerstone for the fully functional system. Problems/Challenges associated with the Iterative Model While the Iterative Model addresses many of the problems associated with the Waterfall Model, it does present new challenges. • The user community needs to be......

Maglev Trains

...Design of a Small-Scale Prototype for a Stabilized Permanent Magnet Levitated Vehicle No. 88 Geoffrey A. Long, O. James Fiske, Brad E. Paden LaunchPoint Technologies, Goleta, California, USA,, ABSTRACT: A small-scale proof-of-concept prototype has been designed and built as the next stage in the development of a novel maglev vehicle concept. This prototype demonstrates many of the key advantages of the technology which uses permanent magnets for levitation and does not require any moving parts in a track bifurcation. Key design features and performance characteristics of the prototype are described: the control system for stable levitation, the linear synchronous motor for propulsion and the method of track switching. Alternative system configurations and other applications of the technology are also briefly discussed. 1 INTRODUCTION The repelling forces resulting from bringing like poles of two magnets together is a commonly experienced phenomenon. The use of this repelling force to levitate a vehicle was considered early in the exploration of maglev vehicle technologies (Pollgreen 1964, Olsen 1965), but was largely discarded due to poor performance of the magnetic materials available at the time. As SmCo materials became available, the approach was revisited but again set aside by most due to the material’s high cost (Sinha 1987). In the 1980’s and 90’s NdFeB materials began to be developed as a low cost......

Concepts and Prototypes

...metaphysics, and philosophy of the mind. A prototype on the other hand, is an early sample or model built to test a concept or process or to act as a thing to be replicated or learned from. Prototype is a term used in a variety of contexts, including semantics, design, electronics, and software programming. A prototype is created to test and experiment a new design to improve precision by system analysts and users. Prototyping helps to offer specifications for a real, working system rather than a theoretical one. They are handmade early versions of something that you might want to produce. Basically, a prototype is a mock-up handmade item made for experimental use or as an example. A prototype is a model used to test and evaluate an experiment or design. On the other hand, prototype in psychology means generally, an item, person or event believed to be the typical example or representation to stand for that category. The prototype theory is a cognitive science theory developed by Eleanor Rosch in the early 1970s, with help from other experts in the field of cognitive psychology. In Rosch's theory, people classify items and concepts based on a prototype or an ideal representation of that category. For instance, the concept of dog is often characterized by fur, a tail, and paws. When discussing or thinking about dogs, people think of classic, stereotypical examples such as german shepherds or spaniels, because it represents the prototype. While a wolf or a jackal might also......

...Arbor, MI 48106-1346 © Theresa Hueftle, 2005 Abstract The purpose of this study was to determine the most effective way to deliver just-in-time learning using mobile technology for newspaper salespeople working in the field. The goal was to produce a pedagogical platform that was time sensitive, had on the job accessibility, and did not overload the salesperson’s mental abilities. The instructional design prototype used an action research approach. The study was based on the works of Gloria Gery (electronic performance support) and Ruth Clarks (building expertise). This study provided the information from an authentic newspaper environment to develop a mobile performance support prototype for newspaper salespeople. Results revealed the hardware, authoring software, content, architecture, and learning theory for developing a prototype. The Pocket PC could deliver the mobile EPSS because the device met the needs of the mobile EPSS and salespeople based on survey results and small group interviews. The researcher selected RoboHelp for developing the prototype because the software was easy to use and had the ability to output multiple formats. Emergent evidence suggested that the mobile EPSS should include: an array of information that covered (a) market research, (b) product, (c) sales, and (d) production. An effective architecture was deemed usable based on the hardware evaluation and Alison Head’s usability criteria. Evidence suggested that the six identified......

The Main Purpose of Prototyping

...later. B. If a prototype is developed using system prototyping, the prototype is a model of the entire system and, if it meets user requirements, can be fleshed out into a full information system. Rapid Application Development (RAD) uses iterative system prototyping to create the final application. A prototype designed using design, or throwaway, prototyping is meant to be discarded after user review, whether or not its design details will be incorporated into the final version. This is frequently used to do mock-ups of user input screens, for example, before the back-end code is developed. C. CASE tools speed development by automatically creating diagrams and sometimes even code from analyst input. Combining CASE tools with 4GLs and application, report, and screen generators gives systems analysts the ability to create information systems quickly and accurately with effective documentation. D. Advantages: • Users get to see, and possibly interact with, a system rather than imagining what it will be like. • Design problems are identified and corrected earlier in the process. • TCO can be lowered by early design refinements, or even scrapping a project when it becomes apparent that it won’t succeed. Disadvantages: • The prototype is not a fully-functioning system, so there may be key details that are not identified until the system is complete. • If the prototype is too elaborate, the work put into it can actually delay the project as a whole. • Prototypes are......

Rapid Application Development vs Waterfall Method

...because of its sequential diagram and this is the reason why many product installation instructions are written in the same linear sequential form. Each step in the waterfall model demonstrates high focus in each phase before being able to move the project forward. The first phase must list all requirements of the project or the new system must be captured and documented in a software requirement document. Using the waterfall model project managers must gather all the detailed information for the project before signing off and proceeding to the next designing phases. After reaching the final phases of the project for testing and then implementation the end user returns and gives their feedback. The customer is now able to see their first prototype since they first met with developers in the initial requirements phase. There are many criticisms of the waterfall model which also originate from the waterfall models strengths. As projects became more difficult the first phase requirements cannot possibly capture every detail of the project before starting. As projects became much larger the time it took complete the project went much longer than projected. Designers or programmers would have to wait until requirements were completely captured before working on their phase. Also, the customer, end user, would wait the longest time in order to see the project at the implementation phase. The negatives of the waterfall model became apparent when trying to apply the waterfall model......

Document Model Prototypes

...Document Object Model Prototypes, Part 1: Introduction Introduction This article is the first installment of a two-part series that introduces advanced JavaScript techniques in Windows Internet Explorer 8. Web applications have come a long way since the birth of the static Web page. Today, Web developers need improved programming functionality, flexibility, and features to enable them to build the next generation of Web applications. The Internet Explorer Web platform provides many of the features and functionality necessary to build those applications. Where the Web platform's built-in support ends, JavaScript, the principle scripting language used on the Web, is often used to code innovative new features that supplement the Web platform, cater to Web site specific scenarios, normalize differences between browsers, and so on. To further empower Web developers with the programming tools necessary to build new JavaScript scenarios that innovate, extend, and build-upon the Web platform, Internet Explorer 8 offers a collection of features that extend some of JavaScript's advanced functionality into the Document Object Model (DOM). This article provides an overview of JavaScript prototype inheritance and introduces the DOM prototypes feature available in Internet Explorer 8; Part 2 introduces a new type of JavaScript property called an accessor property (or getter/setter property). Prototypes in JavaScript To begin a discussion of DOM prototypes, it is crucial to......

...performance engineering. Its launch quality had always been on par or better than that of its major competitors. However, since the late 1980s, the entry of Japanese competition (Honda’s Acura and Toyota Lexus) had set higher standards of conformance in this industry. 1. What are the causes and consequences of BMW’s quality problems with newly launched products? What should be done to improve launch quality? One of the primary reasons for BMW’s quality issues was its strategy of using different tools and materials in the prototyping process when compared to the production runs.BMW supported such a ‘dual’ development process to provide flexibility to its prototyping craftsmen to make changes to the design quickly. For instance, the prototype shop was able to make new parts within a week of being intimated of a design change. In contrast, the lead time for procuring pre-production tools from suppliers was 6 months. Providing such flexibility though had a flip side to it - something which worked in the prototyping phase may not work in the production phase. This meant that potential problems in the design could be identified very late in the development process. People in pilot production spent a lot of their time identifying and solving the big problems leaving them little or no time for minor problems and fine tuning. Thus there were chances of minor issues creeping into actual production resulting in customer complaints after sales. Another reason which contributed......

Waterfall vs. Rad: How to Pick the Right Method for Your Project You'Ve Heard a Lot About Each of These Development Methods, and Maybe You Prefer One over the Other. but How Do You Choose the Best Method for a

...through a series of prototype steps to discover them all. Do you need a prototype? The beauty of the prototype is that it provides an early look at the solution and it allows the customer to develop a better set of requirements through an iterative process. However, a prototype is not applicable with many projects. For instance, if your project involves implementing batch processes, there may not be much value to a prototype. Stick with the waterfall process on these projects. On the other hand, Web projects, because of their visual nature and the ability to reuse many components, lend themselves well to the RAD approach. Are you using a packaged solution? The RAD methodology and the use of the prototype imply that you are building something. If you are implementing a packaged solution, a RAD approach probably will not work as well. It's also hard to break a package implementation into smaller pieces. In general, if you are working with a packaged solution, the waterfall approach is better. The exception is that the more customization that is done to a package, the more opportunity there is to use the package in a prototype mode and utilize RAD in general. How flexible is your team? The waterfall method is best when you want everything documented and you want to force all proposed changes through scope-change management. By its nature, RAD requires a high degree of flexibility and the ability to manage through change. For instance, your initial prototype may......
