BackgroundCondsidered, you have hundreds of books, all kinds of, include mathematic, physics, electronics, software engineering, art and music, and you have a lot of friends, whoms most interest is to borrow books from you and seek knowledge. So, how do you mannage your books, did you ever encounter the following problem:
When you looking for a book for the reference of your paper, but it disappeared, you didn't know whom you lend the book, and when the book returns. (Time Uncontrollable) For some books, you did know it's in your office, but you just can't find it, or it will take you some time to fnd it (10 minites, 20 minutes or longer). (Space Uncontrollable) To satisfy your friends needs, you may make several copys of one book, but after that, most of copy is of little value, and waste your money. (Efficiency) Some times, when your read some books, you got a excellent idea, you want to share it with your friends/students, but you just dident know who read it, and the reader's review of a certain books (rating, comment, tags, and so on). Also, since you can't read through all your books, time limited, you want to know the spirit of the unreaded book, but there is no such records. (Effective)
Both Efficiency and Effective problem is the energy problem, the spirit of industiral engineering. Thus, as an industrial engineer, why not use come ready-made technology to setup a system to management our own books, implement the engineering methodology, and deliver us to the convenient living/working environment. Engineering do things.
Objective & MethodologyUsing Meta-Language as the automatic enumeration and reasoning kernelMeta-Language as a executable tool for us to modeling complex system. Using the term of abstract algebra, we could use algebraic operands/operator set and the connection between them to describe the object and process network existed in the aimed system.
Possible object will be: Book content (Unique number, name, tag, comment, review, last borrow/return date, and so on.), Bookcase content, Personal content, ans so on. Possible process will be: Borrow process, Return process, Newbook brought-in process, and review and comment process, and so on. Via the algebraic structure, we can initialize several value function to evaluate which book should recommend to whom, and construct some statistical process to summary some valuable information among the data set.
Using rich web client development framework as control logic and user interfaceVia internet, people may use the personlized and customized computer program without complicated device installation and configuration. Ajax/Flash/SilverServer also provide the rich representation method for user interface. Current possible web development framework:
