Abstract

  Supplier selection is one of the most important activities of purchasing departments. This importance is increased even more by new strategies in a supply chain, because of the key role suppliers perform in terms of quality, costs and services which affect the outcome in the buyer’s company. Supplier selection is a multiple criteria decision making problem in which the objectives are not equally important. In practice, vagueness and imprecision of the goals, constraints and parameters in this problem make the decision making complicated. Simultaneously, in this model, vagueness of input data and varying importance of criteria are considered. In real cases, where Decision- Makers (DMs) face up to uncertain data and situations, the proposed model can help DMs to find out the appropriate ordering from each supplier, and allows purchasing manager(s) to manage supply chain performance on cost, quality, on time delivery, etc. An additive weighted model is presented for fuzzy multi objective supplier selection problem with fuzzy weights. The model is explained by an illustrative example.

Abstract

  In this paper Semi-Markov models are used to forecast the triple dimensions of next earthquake occurrences. Each earthquake can be investigated in three dimensions including temporal, spatial and magnitude. Semi-Markov models can be used for earthquake forecasting in each arbitrary area and each area can be divided into several zones. In Semi-Markov models each zone can be considered as a state of proposed Semi-Markov model. At first proposed Semi-Markov model is explained to forecast the three mentioned dimensions of next earthquake occurrences. Next, a zoning method is introduced and several algorithms for the validation of the proposed method are also described to obtain the errors of this method.

Abstract

In this paper we focus on a continuously deteriorating two units series equipment which its failure can not be measured by cost criterion. For these types of systems avoiding failure during the actual operation of the system is extremely important. In this paper we determine inspection periods and maintenance policy in such a way that failure probability is limited to a pre-specified value and then optimum policy and inspection period are obtained to minimize long-run cost per time unit. The inspection periods and maintenance policy are found in two phases. Failure probability is limited to a pre-specified value In the first phase, and in the second phase optimum maintenance thresholds and inspection periods are obtained in such a way that minimize long-run expected.

Abstract

The science parks have important role in development of technology and are able to make economic growth of the countries. The purpose of this paper is the presentation of a Fuzzy Expert System (FIS) as Intelligent Systems to evaluate the science and technology parks. One of the problems for evaluating Science and Technology parks is to have the high number of criteria and science parks which AHP method and some other MCDM methods that with them have evaluated parks are not suitable practically. Therefore presenting a system which is able to compare this high number of science parks with many criteria is one of the findings of this paper. At the end, we have described a numerical example. This paper is a useful information resource for managers of Science and Technology parks and interested parties to invest and to recognize the science parks better.

Abstract

Implementation of the risk management concepts into construction practice may enhance the performance of project by taking appropriate response actions against identified risks. This research proposes a multi-criteria group decision making approach for the evaluation of different alternative response scenarios. To take into account the uncertainties inherent in evaluation process, fuzzy logic is integrated into the revaluation process. To evaluate alternative response scenarios, first the collective group weight of each criterion is calculated considering opinions of a group consisted of five experts. As each expert has its own ideas, attitudes, knowledge and personalities, different experts will give their preferences in different ways. Fuzzy preference relations are used to unify the opinions of different experts. After computation of collective weights, the best alternative response scenario is selected by the use of proposed fuzzy group decision making methodology which aggregates opinions of different experts. To evaluate the performance of the proposed methodology, it is implemented in a real project and the best alternative responses scenario is selected for one of the identified risks.

Abstract

In this paper, we propose an extended relocation model for warehouses configuration in a supply chain network, in which uncertainty is associated to operational costs, production capacity and demands whereas, existing researches in this area are often restricted to deterministic environments. In real cases, we usually deal with stochastic parameters and this point justifies why the relocation model under uncertainty should be evaluated. Albeit the random parameters can be replaced by their expectations for solving the problem, but sometimes, some methodologies such as two-stage stochastic programming works more capable. Thus, in this paper, for implementation of two stage stochastic approach, the sample average approximation (SAA) technique is integrated with the Bender's decomposition approach to improve the proposed model results. Moreover, this approach leads to approximate the fitted objective function of the problem comparison with the real stochastic problem especially for numerous scenarios. The proposed approach has been evaluated by two hypothetical numerical examples and the results show that the proposed approach can find better strategic solution in an uncertain environment comparing to the mean-value procedure (MVP) during the time horizon.

Abstract

In certain statistical process control applications, quality of a process or product can be characterized by a function commonly referred to as profile. Some of the potential applications of profile monitoring are cases where quality characteristic of interest is modelled using binary,multinomial or ordinal variables. In this paper, profiles with multinomial response are studied. For this purpose, multinomial logit regression (MLR) is considered as the basis.Then, the MLR is converted to Poisson GLM with log link. Two methods including Multivariate exponentially weighted moving average (MEWMA) statistics, and Likelihood ratio test (LRT) statistics are proposed to monitor MLR profiles in phase II. Performances of these three methods are evaluated by average run length criterion (ARL). A case study from alloy fasteners manufacturing process is used to illustrate the implementation of the proposed approach. Results indicate satisfactory performance for the proposed method.

Abstract

Monitoring the reliability of products in both the manufacturing and service processes is of main concern in today’s competitive market. To this end, statistical process control has been widely used to control the reliability-related quality variables. The so-far surveillance schemes have addressed processes with independent quality characteristics. In multistage processes, however, the cascade property must be effectively justified which entails establishing the relationship among quality variables with the purpose of optimal process monitoring. In some cases, measuring the values corresponding to specific covariates is not possible without great financial costs. Subsequently, the unmeasured covariates impose unobserved heterogeneity which decreases the detection power of a control scheme. The complicated picture arises when the presence of a censoring mechanism leads to inaccurate recording of the process response values. Hence, frailty and Cox proportional hazards models are employed and two regression-adjusted monitoring procedures are constructed to effectively account for both the observed and unobserved influential covariates in line with a censoring issue. The simulation-based study reveals that the proposed scheme based on the cumulative sum control chart outperforms its competing procedure with smaller out-of-control average run length values.

Abstract

Redundancy technique is known as a way to enhance the reliability and availability of non-reparable systems, but for repairable systems, another factor is getting prominent called as the number of maintenance resources. In this study, availability optimization of series-parallel systems is modelled by using Markovian process by which the number of maintenance resources is located into the objective model under constraints such as cost, weight, and volume. Due to complexity of the model as nonlinear programming , solving the model by commercial softwares is not possible, and a simple heuristic method called as simulated annealing is applied. Our main contribution in this study is related to the development of a new availability model considering a new decision variable called as the number of maintenance resources. A numerical simulation is solved and the results are shown to demonstrate the effecienct of the method.

Abstract

In this paper, a new approach based on game theory has been proposed to multi responses problem optimization. Game theory is a useful tool for decision making in the conflict of interests between intelligent players in order to select the best joint strategy for them through selecting the best joint desirability. Present research uses the game theory approach via definition of each response as each player and factors as strategies of each player. This approach cans determine the best predictor factor sets in order to obtain the best joint desirability of responses. For this aim, the signal to noise ratio(SN) index for each response have been calculated with considering the joint values of strategies then obtained SN ratios for each strategy is modeled in the game theory table. Finally, using Nash Equilibrium method, the best strategy which is the best values of predictor factors is determined. A real case and a numerical example are given to show the efficiency of the proposed method. In addition, the performance of the proposed method is compared with the VIKOR method.

Abstract

This paper offers an approach that could be useful for diverse types of layout problems or even area allocation problems. By this approach there is no need to large number of discrete variables and only by few continues variables large-scale layout problems could be solved in polynomial time. This is resulted from dividing area into discrete and continuous dimensions. Also defining decision variables as starting and finishing point of departments in area makes it possible to model layout problem so. This paper also provides new technique that models basic constraints of layout problems.

Abstract

This article addresses a single row facility layout problem where the objective is to optimize the arrangement of some rectangular facilities with different dimensions on a line. Regarding the NP-Hard nature of the considered problem, a hybrid meta-heuristic algorithm based on simulated annealing has been proposed to obtain a near optimal solution. A number of test problems are randomly generated and the results obtained by the proposed hybrid meta-heuristic are compared with exact solutions. The results imply that the proposed hybrid method provides more efficient solutions for the large-sized problem instances.

Abstract

Nowadays, the popularity of social networks as marketing tools has brought a deal of attention to social networks analysis (SNA). One of the well-known Problems in this field is influence maximization problems which related to flow of information within networks. Although, the problem have been considered by many researchers, the concept behind of this problem has been used less in business context. In this paper, by using a cost-benefits analysis, we propose a multi-objective optimization model which helps to identify the key nodes location, which are a symbol of potential influential customers in real social networks. The main novelty of this model is that it determines the best nodes by combining two essential and realistic elements simultaneously: diffusion speed and dispersion cost. Also, the performance of the proposed model is validated by detecting key nodes on a real social network

Abstract

Logistics planning in disaster response phase involves dispatching commodities such as medical materials, personnel, food, etc. to affected areas as soon as possible to accelerate the relief operations. Since transportation vehicles in disaster situations can be considered as scarce resources, thus, the efficient usage of them is substantially important. In this study, we provide a dynamic vehicle routing model for emergency logistics operations in the occurrence of natural disasters. The aim of the model is to find optimal routes for a fleet of vehicles to give emergency commodities to a set of affected areas by considering the existence of more than one arc between each two nodes in the network (multi-graph network). Proposed model considers FIFO property and focused on minimization of waiting time and total number of vehicles. Various problem instances have been provided to indicate the efficiency of the model. Finally, a brief sensitivity analysis is presented to investigate the impact of different parameters on the obtained solutions.

Abstract

Surgical theater is one of the most expensive hospital sources that a high percentage of hospital admissions are related to it. Therefore, efficient planning and scheduling of the operating rooms (ORs) is necessary to improve the efficiency of any healthcare system. Therefore, in this paper, the weekly OR planning and scheduling problem is addressed to minimize the waiting time of elective patients, overutilization and underutilization costs of ORs and the total completion time of surgeries. We take into account the available hours of ORs and the surgeons, legal constraints and job qualification of surgeons, and priority of patients in the model. A real-life example is provided to demonstrate the effectiveness and applicability of the model and is solved using ε-constraint method in GAMS software. Then, data envelopment analysis (DEA) is employed to obtain the best solution among the Pareto solutions obtained by ε-constraint method. Finally, the best Pareto solution is compared to the schedule used in the hospitals. The results indicate the best Pareto solution outperforms the schedule offered by the OR director.

Abstract

Innovation & Prosperity Fund (IPfund) in Iran as a governmental organization aims to develop new technology-based firms (NTBF) by its available resources through financing these firms. The innovative projects which refer to IPfund for financing are in a stage which can receive both fixed rate facilities and partnership in the projects, i.e. profit loss sharing (PLS). Since this fund must protect its initial and real value of its capital against inflation rate, therefore, this study aims to examine the suitable financing methods with considering risk. For this purpose we study on risk assessment models to see how to use risk adjusted net present value for knowledge based projects. On this basis, the NPV of a project has been analyzed by taking into account the risk variables (sales revenue and the cost of fixed investment) and using Monte Carlo simulation. The results indicate that in most cases for a project, the risk adjusted NPV in partnership scenario is more than the other scenario. In addition to, partnership in projects which demand for industrial production facilities is preferable for the IPfund than projects calling for working capital.

Abstract

Human-based quality control reduces the accuracy of this process. Also, the speed of decision making in some industries is very important. For removing these limitations in human-based quality control, in this paper, the design of an expert system for automatic and intelligent quality control is investigated. In fact, using an intelligent system, the accuracy in quality control is increased. It requires the knowledge of experts in quality control and design of expert systems based on the knowledge and information provided by human and equipment. For this purpose, Fuzzy Inference System (FIS) and Image Processing approach are integrated. In this expert system, the input information is the images of the products and the results of processing on images for quality control are as output. At first, they may be noisy images; the pre-processing is done and then a fuzzy system is used to be processed. In this fuzzy system, according to the images, the rules are designed to extract the specific features that are required. At second, after the required attributes are extracted, the control chart is used in terms of quality. Furthermore, the empirical case study of copper rods industry is presented to show the abilities of the proposed approach.

Abstract

This paper deals with multi- objective nonlinear programming problem having rough intervals in the constraints. The problem is approached by taking maximum value range and minimum value range inequalities as constraints conditions, reduces it into two classical multi-objective nonlinear programming problems, called lower and upper approximation problems.  All of the lower and upper approximation problems may be solved using the weighting method, where an optimal rough interval solution is obtained. The stability set of the first kind corresponding to the optimal rough interval solution is determined. An illustrative numerical example is given to clarify the obtained results.

Abstract

     Fully fuzzy linear programming is applied to water resources management due to its close connection with human life, which is considered to be of great importance. This paper investigates the decision-making concerning water resources management under uncertainty based on two-stage stochastic fuzzy linear programming. A solution method for solving the problem with fuzziness in relations is suggested to prove its applicability. The purpose of the method is to generate a set of solutions for water resources planning that helps the decision-maker make a tradeoff between economic efficiency and risk violation of the constraints. Finally, a numerical example is given and is approached by the proposed method.
