and productivity by at least one order of magnitude. COSA
is based on the premise that one of the primary causes
of the software unreliability crisis is the practice of
basing software construction on the algorithm. COSA is

(composition) and execution model. Software creation consists
of connecting elementary concurrent objects (cells) together
using a graphical software composition environment. Cells
can be combined into high-level, plug-compatible components
and/or applications. There is no programming language

Secondly, to make supply chain processes more reliable,
planning systems have to plan for accomplishing robustness,
even when facing significant disturbances. Thirdly, most
current systems do not learn from experience to become
better over time.

in Electronic Markets
In the follow-up of the recent advances in telematic
services and information technologies, we are currently
experiencing a revolution in the way that financial and
commodity markets operate. In particular, brokerage agencies
have enabled small-scale investors to participate in various
marketplaces through Internet: huge parts of the US contracting
volume is supported electronically, and Europe will catch
up to similar amounts soon. However, the incessant rise
of the number of operations realised by investors with
limited experience has exceeded the capacity of many agencies
to provide expert brokers, who advise investors respecting
the most adequate operations for their profile, and who
support them during the enactment of market operations.
