Model of Ball Mill Based on the CPS

With the development of the new technology of intelligent manufacturing and cyber physical system, a new scheme is proposed for designing of predictive production based on ball mill. First, physical model (PM) and the model based on data (cyber model, CM) are discussed. Then, the combination of physical model and cyber model (CPM) is realized. Physical model is established according to the volume balance formula and the material balance formula. Cyber model uses the algorithm of the extreme

A GENERALIZED RANDOMIZED RESPONSE MODEL

In this paper we have suggested a generalized version of the Gjestvang and Singh (2006) model and have studied its properties. We have shown that the randomized response models due to Warner (1965), Mangat and Singh (1990), Mangat (1994) and Gjestvang and Singh (2006) are members of the proposed RR model. The conditions are obtained in which the suggested RR model is more efficient than the Warner (1965) model, Mangat and Singh (1990) model and Mangat (1994) model and Gjestvang and Singh (2006
