At the early stage of information system analysis and design one of the challenge is to estimate total work effort needed, when only small number of analysis artifacts is available. As a solution we propose new method called SAMEE – Simple Adaptive Method for Effort Estimation. It is based on the idea of polynomial regression and uses selected UML artifacts like use cases, actors, domain classes and references between them. In this paper we describe implementation of this method in Enterprise Architect CASE tool and show simple example how to use it in real information system analysis.

This paper concerns the possibility of use the Jiles-Atherton extended model to describe the magnetic characteristics of construction steel St3 under mechanical stress. Results of the modelling utilizing extended Jiles-Atherton model are consistent with results of experimental measurements for magnetic hysteresis loops B(H). Material stress state determination by using non-destructive, magnetic properties based on testing techniques is an especially important problem.

Paper presents methodology of generation of the uniform, compressive or tensile stresses in ring-shaped amorphous alloys core. In this study we use the set of special nonmagnetic, cylindrical backings. These backings enabled the core to be wound as well as create the possibility of generation of uniform compressive and tensile stresses. Using presented methodology the magnetoelastic characteristics were experimentally determined for Fe40Ni38Mo4B18 Metglas 2826 MB amorphous alloy. Knowledge about these properties is important for users of inductive components with amorphous alloys cores due to the fact, that changes of flux density due to magnetoelastic effect exceed 40%.

We propose the time slot routing, a novel routing scheme that allows for a simple design of interconnection networks. The simulative results show that the proposed scheme demonstrates optimal performance at the maximal uniform network load, and for uniform loads the network throughput is greater than for deflection routing.

In the article we study a model of network transmissions with Active Queue Management in an intermediate IP router. We use the OMNET++ discrete event simulator to model the varies variants of the CHOKe algoithms. We model a system where CHOKe, xCHOKe and gCHOKe are the AQM policy. The obtained results shows the behaviour of these algorithms. The paper presents also the implementation of AQM mechanisms in the router based on Linux.

Instructions for authors

Submissions of a manuscript for publication in TaAI implies that the paper was not previously published (with possible exceptions of selected conference and invited papers) and is not being submitted for publication elsewhere; that permission for publication, if needed, has been granted by appropriate sources; and the first author ensures that other authors have approved the paper for publication.

Manuscripts (in 2 paper copies and electronic copy) should be sent directly to the Editorial Office. All further correspondence, proofs and offprints will be sent to the first author, unless indicated otherwise by the authors.

All papers will be evaluated by one of the Editors and will be reviewed.

Suitability for publication will be judged on the basis of relevance of the paper contents to the overall TaAI aims and scope, its originality, technical quality, importance and readability.

The language of the journal is English (with possible exceptions). The text should be formatted, and appropriate templates (DOC or TeX format) are available at:

Author will receive 10 offprints of published paper without charge.

Authors can receive their paper for a galley proof. Extensive changes of the text in galley proofs are unacceptable; in exceptional cases a note added in a proof can be included at the end of paper. If the proofs are not returned promptly, the article will be proof-read against the manuscript by the publisher and printed without author's corrections.

Editorial Office right is to skip galley proof stage in the process of publication.
