people with complementary skils who are committed to a common purpose performance goals and approach for which they hold themselves mutualy accountable Explain why engineers work in teams and how diverse perspectives are critical for designproblem solving Individuals working alone are usually ineffective in solving current complex engineering problems instead well trained multidisciplinary teams can address complex problems more productively Even simple things like electric tooth brushes are surprising complex The New Your Times reports in 1999 quotAn average electronic toothbrush has

base storage solution with service such as Dropbox wwwdropboxcom Google Drive drivegooglecom or SugarSync httpwwwsugarsynccom Cloud based storage gives every team member access to the latest versions of your team s les without needing to send thousands of emails Group Messaging Effective communication between team members is a necessity for having effective teams To insure effective communications set up a group messaging system There are many ways to do this The key is to select the tools that will work best for your team 1 Email Have a rule that all group emails must be sent to all people 2 Group Texting Texting is one of the most used forms of communication for our generation Group Me httbsdroubmecom is a service that gives your team a phone number that will send every person a text when you text that number 3 Social Media Use IM and messaging features of your favor social media site to keep team members updated Find out when everyone is free to work Make sure that you know when team members are free during the week so you can have quick meetings during the day and not at midnight Your team can use this quotEasy Team Schedulerquot template on Google docs googOsxvg or whatever your team likes best MATLAB Variables What are variables Variables are arbitrary name that you give to some data that is stored in the computer to make programming easer The computer thinks that Force MassAcceeration Voltage Current Resistance and Price Quantity UnitPrice are all the same calculation because I named the variables differently we now have 3 equations that are used in very different applications dynamics electricity and accounting I like to think of variables as voodoo dolls for data thank you to BC Kwon Waqas Javed Dr Elmqvist Dr Yi for this analogy httpwwwyoutubecomwatchvxE2RcOzEU Variable naming rules I Variables are case sensitive Plato and plato are different I Variables must start with a letter 50cent is not acceptable variable I Variables can consist of letters digits and underscores I No symbols except for underscore Keha is not an acceptable variable I No spaces I Make sure a variable name is not a built in MATLAB function Booleans Booleans are the simplest type of data in MATLAB they have 2 possible values 1true xor 0false The primary uses of Booleans are the result of logic operators Scalar Numbers Scalar numbers are any single real or imaginary number such as 5 31415926 pi and any other number on the number line Myscalarva riable 5 Vectors Creating vectors Must start and end with brackets Row vectors use spaces or

and words that your program can use In MATLAB you use single quotes to make a string MyString 39Matlab is fun Other MATLAB commands we used this semester who displays variables that are in current memory clear clears all variables from memory clc just clears Command Window does NOT erase variables currently in use clear X w clears just variables x and w from memory doc launches the help in

39cosine plots a histogram with the number of histcyinderdia noofbins bins you told it to use frequency centers histcyinderdia noofbins Gives you the number of elements in each bin and the bin centers MATLAB Using variables Addition and subtraction MATLAB uses for addition and for subtraction because MATLAB is matrix based depending on what type of variable you use could result in different results aScalar xor bScalar is simple addition or subtraction aScalar xor aMatrix will add the scalar number to every number in the vector aMatriX xor aScalar will add the scalar number to every number in the vector aMatrix xor bMatriX only works if the vectorsMatrix are the same size and will addsubtract the numbers that are in the same position ie 1 2 34 5 6 5 7 9 Multiplication Division and Powers MATLAB doe s Liner Algebra multiplication and division by default which can produce unexpected results In FYE classes you will want to do element by element multiplication and division which is done by using a dot in front of the operator l aMatrix bMatix element by element multiplication works only if the matrixes are the same size aMatrix bMatix Liner Algebra multiplication do not use in FYE Classes cScaIaraMatix will work every time cScaIardScalar will work every time aMatrixcScalar will work every time cScaIaraMatrix will work every time aMatrix bMatix element by element division will

quotbMatix will cause an error WHEN DOING CALCULATIONS MAKE SURE THE RESULTS YOU GET MAKE SENSE Builtin Functions Sometimes there are calculations that for whatever reason are too hard to insert manually every time you need to use them Luckily MATLAB Excel your calculator other programming languages have functions to allow you to easily do hard calculations For example instead of calculating the sine of an angle manually you can use the sine function sin SineOpri sin 2pi Note pi is a built in value of 31415926 The general form of a function that you will use in calculations is and you just use this as another variable functionName input Example sin5 x y25xe Cos3x In MATLAB would be y 25 expsin 5x cos 3x UserDe ned functions turns your script into a secret agents All functions start with the following line called function de nition line function output1 output2 outputn functionName inputl input2 inputn The word function Your outputs in square bracket I If you have 0 outputs leave this blank I If you have 1 output no commas are need I If you have gt1 outputs separate each output with a comma Your function name must be the same as your m file Your inputs are in parentheses Multiple inputs are separated with commas I To check to see if your User Defined Function is complete make sure that there are no squiggly lines under your inputs and outputs in the function definition line I The variables that are in the function definition line will be defined when someone calls the function I You must use a vector to call multiple outputs The outputs will be in the same order as defined in the function definition line User de ned function verses script Script Function input function out myfunctionin in input what is your input help lines calculations out in25

programming 0 You cannot touch code so it is hard to understand or explain to other people 0 There are many ways to get the right answer 0 Some code is depended on other code but some is not 0 Small errors can have a major impact 0 Having a saved variable in the workspace can cause problems 0 It is very hard to guess and check your code 0 Errors in code tend to compound on previous errors 0 You have to think about what you are doing 0 You need to fully understand the problem you are working on Tools to help ow chart Flow charts are visual representations of the ow of processes They are very helpful in allowing you to plan out and test code in a visual manor Symbol What it does circleoval Start stop of the program There should be only one start and only one stop parallelogram Inputoutput rectangle Calculation diamond Decisionloop Must have one arrow in and 2 arrows outtrue condition and false condition NOTE it is very importation that you only have one action going on a time we are not programming for multiple cores so the computer can only do one action at a time Tools to Help pseudo code Pseudo code is code that does not follow the rules of any programming language Pseudo code allows you to get your ideas on paper without having to worry about if you are using the right syntax Think of pseudo code as a very rough draft of your code Pseudo code should be written on paper NOT a computer Tools to help iterative programming Iterative programming is an approach to programming where you write small chucks of code then test the code You repeat this until you are done with the program I am not going to give you an absolute rule on how many lines you can write However you should test your code after you nish any step such as getting all your inputs This means you could write 10 lines before testing your code like when you are declaring your variables or you could go only one line like when you are doing a complex calculation Remember the fewer lines of code you have to search to nd an error the better Tools to help software engineering V I mark p Dmmt yw ggjvm 7 I 1 Software engineering processes are a customized version of the design processes similar to what you learned earlier but with a focused on the challenges of software development I will be using the V model for software development that I modi ed to better represent homework in rst year engineering classes 1 Understanding the assignment 0 READ and do EVERYTHING that the instructions ask you to do 0 You might want to highlight or underline key facts or information 0 Homework in first year engineering classes and many other classes is set up to be done step by step and is graded on if you complete each step and each step is dependent on the previous steps 0 In industry Analysts report that as many as 71 percent of software projects that fail do so because of poor requirements management making it the single biggest reason for project failure bigger than bad technology missed deadlines or change management fiascoes 2 2 Identify the Hidden system Requirements 0 After you figure out what is required of you find the things that you MUST do but MAY NOT be explicitly stated in the instructions This includes comments and headers 0 You need to be aware of Hidden Requirements because that is where you will lose a lot of points even when you think you have done everything right However I do not expect you to write them down 3 Figure out the general steps 0 Come up with a plan of attack to solve the problem 0 Every problem has a specific set of steps that you need to do to get the right answer 0 You do not have to write down the general steps but if you are designing something complicated then you should 0 For program you could make a owchart or any other chart that allows you to plan your code 4 Work out the problem do the coding 0 Since you planed everything out and you know exactly what is expected of you this should be the easy part 2Lindquest C 2005 November 15 Fixing the software requirements mess CO Retrieved from httpwwwciocomarticle14295FixingtheSoftwareRequirementsMess 0 Make sure you test small chunks of code to make sure things are coming out as expected 5 Generate results 0 Come up with a solutions a make sure it is in the correct format 6 Verify completeness 0 Make sure that you have everything that is asked for 0 Also make sure your answers make sense No having things go faster than the speed of light 7 Submitting for grading 0 Submit your homework online or have a hardcopy ready for class 0 If you followed this model you should be getting good grades and you should not be spending too much time on your homework More information on software engineering CS 307 Software Engineering 1 class notes httpwwwcsourdueeduhomesbxd307

you to have an computer make choices for you General format iflogical expression some code if the logical expression of the if statements is true elseiflogical expression this is optional and you can have as many elseif as you needed some code if the logical expression of the elseif statements is true else this is optional and you need NO logical expression after some code if everything else is false end you must have an end NOTES I For every if you have you need to have an end I elseif and else are optional you do not need to have them I Smart Indent highlight and CtrlI or right Click

while loops While loops allow user to have the computer do repeated tasks over and over until a logical expression becomes false This is useful because let s say l have an activity that I want to do until some logical conditions become false I could make an quotif statementquot and copy it a million times so I can get the results or I can use a while loop General format declaration of initial values whilelogical expression code you want to run while the logical expression is true code that changes the logical expression end NOTES I For every while you have you need to have an end I You can put as much code as you want inside of a while loops I While loops only run if the logical expression is true I Smart Indent highlight and Ctrli or right click allows you to see your while loop

expression correctly or not at all You can stop an in nite loop manually by pressing ctrc For loops For loops are de nite loops meaning that you know the number of times the loop iterates beforehand For loops do NOT use logic They are controlled by a variable that gets its value from a vector General format fbr loquontrol someVector end this loop will run fer each element in someVector For loops end when you have gone through all the elements of the vector You do not need a logical statement or to change the value of loop control NOTES For every for you have you need to have an end You can put as much code as you want inside of a for loop For loops only run if there are values in someVector The for loop will not run if there are no values in someVector loopControl resets every time the

used for prediction 0 A regression line trendline is created that is a model of the data 0 As long as X is within range of the original data Cannot use line to predict values of data below or above original X values Regression by Eye Just draw a linear regression line trendline on the data This is quick and easy Does not give very good results ie will not produce the same resulted every time or can be inaccurate A line is created that is a model of the data Two point method Find the slope and intercept from the rst and last points on the trendline This is quick and easy Only takes in to account 2 data points so does not give the best prediction and if you chose different data points you can get different results Simple Linear Regression using Least Squares Method This is the preferred method because it takes in to account all data points and will produce the same result every time assuming you are doing it right and using the same data Calculating by Hand Solve for a and b l lll Calculating using MATLAB Remember alphabetical order t before val To nd the coef cients of the linear regression equation y ax b use the poly t command This will give you the coef cients a and b coef cients poly tx y 1 NOTE the 1 is used in this command to tell MATLAB that this is a rst order linear equation To nd the y values of the regression line trendline use the polyval command yPredicted polyvalcoef cients x MATLAB code example X data 1 y data 2 coeff poly t x y 1 y t polyval coeff X sse sumx y tquot2 sst sumy meanyquot2 rsquared 1 ssesst How good is your Simple Linear Regression You can tell how good a regression is by looking at the coef cient of determination It shows the strength of the linear relationship between the independent and dependent variable It shows the extent to which the dependent variable is dependent on the independent variable SSE Sum of Squares of Errors a measure of how well we can predict the dependent variable SST Sum of Squares of Deviations Total a measure of how much variability there is in the original dependent variable a I2 Coef cient of Determination the square of correlation coef cient is a measure of shared variance and is de ned as 1 SSESST r2 varies between 0 and 1 The closer to 1 the better the t r2 1 means y is completely dependent on X Note that a small r2 does not indicate a small error EX For r2 082 means a strong positive relationship between the independent and dependent variable It shows that the value of x predicts 82 of the variability of y 18 is due to other factors Danger of interpolating While it is very tempting to estimate values outside of your given data interpolating this brings extreme risk because you cannot assume that the data follows the same pattern A great example of this is the stock price of Lehman Brothers for the week of August 25 2008 the stock price followed a linear trend of price 712days past August 2512708 with an R squared value of 9721 This is really good regression for the real world however if you attempt to extend the trend for a few more weeks it would fail because Lehman Brothers led for bankruptcy on September 15 2008 making the stock worthless Data from yahoo nance Function discovery Simple linear regression is great for linear data however there is a lot of data that is not linear We can make simple linear regression even more powerful if we can make nonlinear data linear Luckily there is a way to do this Functions we are going to be working with Linear Power Exponential and Logarithmic Look at behavior on axes Look at behavior

favorite search engine to nd more indepth tutorials and examples like I did to make this sheet Handles where your data is stored In MATLAB GUIs the data of the GUIs is stored in a variable called handles so you can access your data in any part of the GUI Handles has a data type structure I like to think of handles as a wallet with cash variables I make and credit cards GUI components With a wallet the tradeoff for being able to have your money in a single place is to get it You have the inconvenience of opening the wallet For handles to get to your variables you have to type quothandles varibenamequot When using credit cards in addition to having to get the credit card out of your wallet you must use a special machine or your credit card is just a random account number The same is true with GUI components to be able to use GUI components You have to use get or set Once you are done with using the wallet you need to put it in a safe place when you are done For handles you use guidata to put your data in a safe place Programing Callback Functions There are 5 types of actions that you can do in the callback functions to make your GUI work When you design you program you can pick and choose which of the following ve actions you need to use 1 Getting data Before you can make any changes or do any calculations you need to retrieve data from the GUI This is done by the get command When you are working inside the callback function of a GUI component you would type var geth0bject Prqpertythe When you are working in any other function you need to type var gethandlesComponenttag PrqpertyName NOTE PropertyName should be replaced with String when you are reading text or Value when you are getting the state of a component such as a radio button NOTE Use var str2num var to convert var into a number 2 Validate data Check to make sure that the variables you are working with are what you expected You can use an if statement NCTTEquotvisemptystr2numstr returns true if str is just numbers and no letters NCTTEistrcmpstr1str2 returns true if strl and str2 are the same 3 Calculate data Do whatever calculations you need to do or run whatever functions you need to run NOTE Variables that are a part of the handles structure need to be referred to as handlesvar 4 Update the GUI Based on your calculations or data validation you might need to update the GUI To do this you use the set command When you are working inside the callback function of a GUI component you would type set hObject PropertyName PropertyValue When you are working in any other function you need to type set handlesComponenttag PropertyName PropertyValue NOTE PropertyName needs to be a property of the GUI component You can get a list of properties of each GUI component by doubleclicking on a component NOTE Use var num2str var to convert var into a string Return handles bacllt t0 the program Update handles structure Include this as the last line of the function to insure that any changes you make in the functions are able to pass to other functions guidata hObject handles Types of Components Available Note I did not include ActiveX controls because these controls interact with other programs Inputs Outputs Component controls Push Button Slider Static Text Axes Panel visual appeal only Radio Button Check Box Edit Text Popup Menu List box Toggle button

Animating Components Animation is the moving a GUI component a little bit at a time with a small pause between movements MATLAB only supports the running of one loop at a time By having conditional statements in your animation loop that are controlled by UserData property If you want animations to start when the GUI starts running put the animation code in the Outputhn Example code Timer timerTime 60 time is in seconds for TimePasted 11timerTime set handlestext String TimePasted display the time lapsed pause 1 pause for 1 second end Animating while I want to move the object until this is false a Location gethandlesComponenttag Position gets the current component location Location1 Location1 movebeThisManyPixals adjust the x location Location2 Location2 moverbyThisManyPixals adjusts

from other GUls You can get the handles of any GUI by using guidata Once you have them you can do whatever you want to the GUI When you have multiple GUIS open at the same time handlesOfMyGUI
