KeywordBook management, Meta-Language, Ubiquitous, RFID

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:

HTML/XHTML/XML/CSS/Javascript, the basic element of Ajax. PHP, a widely-used general-purpose scripting language that is especially suited for Web development and can be embedded into HTML. Quick and low cost. ROR, Ruby On Rails, Rails is a full-stack framework for developing database-backed web applications according to the Model-View-Control pattern. JSF, Java Server Faces technology simplifies building user interfaces for JavaServer applications. Developers of various skill levels can quickly build web applications by: assembling reusable UI components in a page; connecting these components to an application data source; and wiring client-generated events to server-side event handlers. Using the Bar-Code and RFID technique as the physical device implementingDiagram reader Components: a webcam, processing. We use our own identification patterns to identify books. Color and shape of the diagram is used to identify the book. We make the identification patterns as simple as possible so that when new books come in, we can easily add the books to our database. And we can draw it directly by hand and put on the books. We also can organize books in a way that fits to our own demand. For example, let’s assume that current interest of our group is Galois connection then, we can add red circle on the diagrams on the books related to Galois connection. That way we can easily know that whether the book borrowed is relevant for our current interest. RFID Components: RFID reader, RFID tags We use RFID to identify readers. Each reader has his own RFID card to borrow books. Work Schedule2008/7/1 – 2008/7/8 Theoretical/Tools preparation. 2008/7/8 – 2008/7/15 Technology implementing and debugging. 2008/7/15 – 2008/7/22 Innovation summarizing, system improvement.
