Abstract - Remote Laser Welding (RLW) been considered as a new and promising green technology for sheet metal assembly in automotive industry because of its benefits on several concerns. However, the recent RLW systems are limited in their applicability due to lack of systematic control methodologies. In order to overcome this problem, this study aims to develop a control module to obtain good quality joints of RLW by using Back Propagation Neural

Network (BPNN). A certain parameters are used in this study, such as laser power, welding speed, part-to-part gap, plasma, temperature, and reflection. The output of this study only includes 1 variable, which is the results of visual inspection by human, ranging to 2 options (good and bad).

Your Creed

Tuley, Marty Basic Health Publications ePub


YOU HAVE MADE AN IMPORTANT DECISION. You have decided to change your life! You have decided to stop wishing you were healthier and instead to do something about it.


You have decided that you will play ball with your children without getting winded. You have decided to pick out clothes you like, not just ones that fit you. You have decided to ease into a chair, instead of squeeze into it. You have decided to kick, scrape, and fight for every single minute of this life and grab for all the gusto you can because life really is too short.

You have decided that you will not sit around and hope you do not get heart disease, cancer, and/or diabetes. If you sit, you are a target. You have chosen not to be a target. You have decided you will do everything possible to make sure you don’t get caught in the crossfire of disease.

You have decided that you will not do this alone. You will educate your children, your spouse, and your friends about your worthy cause. You will take anyone who will listen and participate along for the ride. You will have a more positive future, because you have decided to … GET OFF YOUR ASS!

6. Error Handling

Guy Harrison O'Reilly Media ePub

The perfect programmer, living in a perfect world, would always write programs that anticipate every possible circumstance. Those programs would either always work correctly, or fail "gracefully" by providing comprehensive diagnostic information to the support team and very readable messages to the user.

For a certain class of applicationssoftware supporting life support systems or the space shuttle, for instancethis level of perfection is actually a part of the requirements, because any unexpected failure of the software would be catastrophic. However, in the world of business applications, we usually make certain assumptions about our execution environmentwe assume the MySQL server will be running, that our tables have not been dropped, that the host machine is not on fire, and so on. If any of these conditions occurs, then we accept that our application will fail. In many other circumstances, we can and should anticipate potential failures and write code to manage those situations. This is where exception handling comes into play.
