The frequency of chronic diseases such as cardiovascular diseases has significantly increased in recent years. This study is a developmental research which is categorized as descriptive-survey in terms of data collection method. The aim of this study is to prioritize 22 districts of Tehran for the purpose of prevention from cardiovascular diseases. In the present study, after extraction of the effective factors on the prevalence of cardiovascular diseases from previous studies, the weight of each factor with their specific data for each 22 districts of Tehran (collected from relevant organizations) is obtained using two levels of Fuzzy Delphi method and one level of fuzzy best-worst method, for confirming or denying factors and weighting them based on the opinion of 25 cardiologists, respectively, and transferred to Arc GIS software for prioritizing 22 districts of Tehran.Using a combination of fuzzy best-worst method, which is one of the newest methods for making multi-criteria decision, and GIS, for weighting parameters and prioritizing 22 districts of Tehran, gives an acceptable worth to the present study.Our results-after classification, drawing, and combination of maps- indicated that the 8th district (except a little part in the west) is the best district, and 16th and 19th districts (approximately whole district) are in the last priority for prevention of cardiovascular diseases. Other districts respectively placed in the second to 21th places.

The selection of an appropriate cutting tool for the production of different jobs in a flexible manufacturing system (FMS) can play a pivotal role in the efficient utilization of the FMS. The selection procedure of a cutting tool for different production operations becomes more significant with the availability of similar types of tools in the FMS. In order to select and allocate appropriate tool for various production operations in the FMS, the tool selection rules are commonly used. The application of tool selection rules is also observed to be beneficial when a system demands two or more tools for the production operations at different work centers at the same time in the FMS. In this paper, investigations are carried out to evaluate the performance of different tool selection rules in the FMS. The performance of the tool selection rules is evaluated by simulation with respect to different performance parameters in the FMS namely makespan, mean work center utilization (%) and mean automatic tool transporter (ATT) utilization (%).
