Fuzzy Logic is one of the concepts that has created different scientific attitudes by entering into various professional fields nowadays and in some cases has made remarkable effects on the results of the practical researches. However, the existence of stochastic and uncertain situations in risk and accident field, affects the possibility of the forecasting and preventing the occurrence of the accident and the undesired results of it.

In this paper, fuzzy approach is used for risk evaluating and forecasting, in accidents caused by working with vehicles such as lift truck. Basically, by using fuzzy rules in forecasting various accident scenarios, considering all input variables of research problem, the uncertainty space in the research subject is reduced to the possible minimum state and a better capability of accident forecasting is created in comparison to the classic two-valued situations. This new approach helps the senior managers make decisions in risk and accident management with stronger scientific support and more reliably.

With regard to the industry's development, occupational safety is a key factor in protecting the worker's health, achieving organizational goals and increasing productivity. Therefore, research is needed to investigate the factors affecting occupational safety. This research, based on the information gathered from the paint halts of one of the industrial units of Tehran, uses data mining technique to identify the important factors.Initially with Literature review to 2018, an insight into existing approaches and new ideas earned. Then, with a significant 5600 units of data, the results of the charts, association rules and K-means algorithm were used to extract the latent knowledge with the least error without human intervention from the six-step methodology of Crisp for data mining.The results of charts, association rules, and K-means algorithm for clustering are in a line and have been successful in determining effective factors such as important age groups and education, identifying important events, identifying the halls and finally, the root causes of major events that were the research questions.The results reveal the importance of very young and young age with often diploma education and low experience, in major accidents involving bruising, injury, and torsion, often due to self-unsafe act and unsafe conditions as slipping or collision with things. In addition, the important body members, hands and feet in the color retouching and surface color cabins are more at risk. These results help improve safety strategies. Finally, suggestions for future research were presented.

Background: In this paper healthcare condition of 31 countries that are the members of Organization for Economic and Co-operative Development (OECD) is measured by considering 14 indicators that are relevant to three main pillars of sustainable development.
Method: To estimate the efficiency scores, Principle Component Analysis-Data Envelopment Analysis PCA-DEA additive model in both forms of envelopment and multiplier is used to determine efficiency scores and also to define benchmarks and improvement plan for the inefficient countries. Then Decision Tree Analysis is also used to realize that which factors were the most influential ones to make a county an efficient Decision Making Unit (DMU).
Results: According to the PCA-DEA additive model, among 31 OECD countries, 16 countries have become inefficient, that USA have taken the lowest efficiency score, and among efficient countries Iceland could be considered as a paragon which has the highest frequency between the countries that are defined as the benchmarks. Decision tree analysis also show that exposure to PM2.5 is an influential factor on the efficiency status of countries.
Conclusion: This research gives an insight about the sustainable development and healthcare system and show the impressive effect of environmental and social factors like: exposure to PM2.5 and water quality, population insurance coverage, and AIDS on the healthcare efficiency of OECD countries

Organizations have used Customer Lifetime Value (CLV) as an appropriate pattern to classify their customers. Data mining techniques have enabled organizations to analyze their customers’ behaviors more quantitatively. This research has been carried out to cluster customers based on factors of CLV model including length, recency, frequency, and monetary (LRFM) through data mining. Based on LRFM, transaction data of 1865 customers in a software company has been analyzed through Crisp-DM method and the research roadmap. Four CLV factors have been developed based on feature selection algorithm. They also have been prepared for clustering using quintile method. To determine the optimum number of clusters, silhouette and SSE indexes have been evaluated. Additionally, k-means algorithm has been applied to cluster the customers. Then, CLV amounts have been evaluated and the clusters have been ranked. The results show that customers have been clustered in 4 groups namely high value loyal customers, uncertain lost customers, uncertain new customers, and high consumption cost customers. The first cluster customers with the highest number and the highest CLV are the most valuable customers and the fourth, third, and second cluster customers are in the second, third, and fourth positions respectively. The attributes of customers in each cluster have been analyzed and the marketing strategies have been proposed for each group.

Purpose: Non-cancerous prostate lesions such as prostate calcification, prostate enlargement, and prostate inflammation cause too many problems for men’s health. This research proposes a novel approach, a combination of image processing techniques and deep learning methods for classification and segmentation of the prostate in CT-scan images by considering the experienced physicians’ reports.
Methodology: Due to the various symptoms and nature of these lesions, a three-phases innovative approach has been implemented. In the first phase, using Mask R-CNN, in the second phase, considering the age of each patient and comparison with the standard size of the prostate gland, and finally, using the morphology features, the presence of three common non-cancerous lesions in the prostate gland has investigated.
Findings: A hierarchical multitask approach is introduced and the final amount of classification, localization, and segmentation loss is 1%, 1%, and 7%, respectively. Eventually, the overall loss ratio of the model is about 9%.
Originality: In this study, a medical assistant approach is introduced to increase diagnosis process accuracy and reduce error using a real dataset of abdominal and pelvics’ CT scans and the physicians’ reports for each image. A multi-tasks convolutional neural network; also presented to perform localization, classification, and segmentation of the prostate gland in CT scans at the same time.
