There are some safety assessment, some of them are inherent safety and probabilistic
safety assessment. But, it has not clearly defined of them. This paper reports the difference of both
safeties and the way of realizing optimization of Life Cycle Cost of Safety Related System. And
it proposes the concept of Safety Cost and reports it on the Railway transmission systems．About
the railway systems, the cost loss is fewer than the more safety transportation facilities in signaling
systems. So it is important to identify the concepts of the inherent safety and the Safety Cost must
need to validate it by the Risk Assessment.
This document introduces Reliability Test Meeting of Reliability EngineeringAssociation
in Japan. I clarify a start process and the activity purpose of this meeting. And I explain the history
of the activity of this meeting. The report made by this meeting informs it about an important item
for a reliability test plan. Finally I show action program for the future of this meeting.
The functional safety focuses on the hardware, software, and human which construct
the safety-related control system, and specifies the requirements corresponding to the severity of the
damage foreseen when the safety-related control system becomes malfunction. In order to achieve
the functional safety, practical use of the basic researches accumulated in the past in fields, such
as dependability, reliability, electricity, machinery, software, and management of an organization, is
essential. This paper describes the relation of the technology of dependability and risk management
fields across boundaries in functional safety.
This document describes an argument and its basis of which Lcc (Life cycle costing)
method shall be a discipline as a current engineering technology under modern industry application.
And historical progress of this method is briefly introduced for understanding of this study and also
discussed the several issues on implementing this method into the current industrial practices. Additionally,
objective systematic approach is proposed as optimized conditions and its environment for
Lcc application with anticipated expectation of significant benefits for all industries and also social
services and national services.
The purpose of this paper is to propose an idea of the next-generation cost information system.
With the arrival of the cloud computing age, the corporate management is now facing changes.
In such situation, it is assumed that we have a large-scale virtual database and must choose the relating
data for effective decision making. For that, we suggest a conceptual model of OOCM based on
PSLX (Figs. 4 and 5). OOCM based on PSLX, as a next-generation cost information system, enables
data curation, collection and aggregation related to costs and we can use cost information flexibly
through repetitive dialogue.
Japan Society for Management Information (JASMIN) was established when the Japan
Society forManagement Informatics (JASMIN) and Association forManagement Information (AMI)
were merged in 1992, with a scope of researches into utilization technology of information technology
(IT). The article describes its brief history, as well as the positioning and the status of the Society
vis-`a-vis other academic societies in the related fields, the society in general and the international
community in the field, in particular Association for Information Systems (AIS) and International
Conferences on Information Systems (ICIS).
This article introduces the general situation of the Robotics Society of Japan (RSJ) that
was founded on January 28, 1983 for purposes of promoting progress in academic fields and providing
specialists with a venue for announcing their research and exchanging technical information.
Moreover, this article shows the activities of the RSJ and the cooperation with other academic societies.
