As in previous years, the panel carried out a survey of harassment advisers, the results of which are appended. All university advisers were asked, and college advisers registered with the panel were invited, to return reports indicating the ways in which the existence and identity of advisers were made generally known within their institution; and, if they had been approached for help in their capacity as advisers, to give anonymised reports outlining the basic characteristics of the complaint or inquiries they had dealt with during the year. Advisers were also invited to indicate any particular problems which they had encountered in attempting to deal with the complaints.
Returns were received from seventy departments, faculties, and other university institutions (out of eighty-six circulated) and from twenty-two colleges and societies. Members of the panel made similar returns.
The returns only relate to matters brought to the attention of advisers, and therefore cannot be taken to provide a complete view of experience of harassment within the University. In particular, the panel understands that a large number of complaints were made to the Welfare Officers at OUSU. Although the panel does not have details of these complaints, the information available does nevertheless supply some insight as to how the University's, and to a lesser extent colleges', advisory machinery is being used, and with what effect. The survey shows a figure similar to that of 19934, with a slight increase in the numbers directed to the panel, and a decrease in those seeking advice direct from departmental advisers.
In Trinity Term the panel received an interim discussion paper from the Committee to Review Disciplinary Procedures to which it has responded in detail. The panel was particularly interested to read the Zellick Report on student disciplinary procedures and has expressed some concern as to the approach adopted by the task force, particularly in relation to students who do not wish to pursue criminal proceedings, but are none the less anxious that the university or college disciplinary mechanism should provide them with some redress. In Michaelmas Term, the panel arranged for Ms Sue Ashtiany, a local solicitor, to give a presentation to the panel on the legal issues underpinning the consideration of harassment. It was particularly noted in the course of the discussion that it is unsatisfactory that the University's code and regulations define harassment differently. The panel hopes that the forthcoming review of the working of the code of practice on harassment will address this issue.

IDEAS (Integrated design engineering and analysis system) is a package for design, analysis, and manufacture of mechanical components. At the core of the system is a sophisticated solid modeller which enables creation and visualisation of three- dimensional representations of objects.
The solid modeller is used as the basic input for a number of other modules (including finite element modelling, mechanism design, machining, and drafting). The approach adopted is that the user should build a solid model of the component, then carry out analysis tasks using that geometry (e.g. a stress analysis). The integration means that the basic geometry only needs to be input once. Modifications can be readily made if the analysis reveals that they are appropriate.
Once the design has been finalised, working drawings can be produced with very little effort from the solid model. The geometry can also be used to produce instructions for CNC machines so that manufacture of complex components can be easily accomplished.
Besides being of immense use in the design of components, IDEAS has become an industry standard solid modeller for several other major advanced IT software packages unrelated to CAD. It is anticipated that there would be considerable interest in the use of IDEAS for some of these other applications, as well as the purely CAD application.
Use of the package is supported primarily by members of the Department of Engineering Science's EDPG (Engineering Design and Projects Group) with assistance from members of the academic staff where appropriate.
Each department wishing to use the package will be asked to nominate one person to act as a primary contact for that department.
Anyone considering the application of the IDEAS package to a project may discuss the matter with the EDPG (e-mail: email@example.com). Enquiries about user registration and booking of the workstation should be addressed to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
