Agebased vs. stock level control policies for a perishable inventory system
(2001)In this study, we investigate the impact of modified lotsizereorder control policy for perishables which bases replenishment decisions on both the inventory level and the remaining lifetimes of items in stock. We derive ... 
The effects of structural characteristics of explanations on use of a DSS
(Elsevier, 2006)Research in the field of expert systems has shown that providing supporting explanations may influence effective use of system developed advice. However, despite many studies showing the less than optimal use made of DSS ... 
Evaluating predictive performance of judgemental extrapolations from simulated currency series
(Elsevier, 1999)Judgemental forecasting of exchange rates is critical for financial decisionmaking. Detailed investigations of the potential effects of timeseries characteristics on judgemental currency forecasts demand the use of ... 
A game theoretical modeling and simulation framework for the integration of unmanned aircraft systems in to the national airspace
(American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics Inc, AIAA, 2016)The focus of this paper is to present a game theoretical modeling and simulation frame work for the integration of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) into the National Airspace system (NAS). The problem of predicting the ... 
Guessing with lies
(2002)A practical algorithm was obtained for directly generating an optimal guessing sequence for guessing under lies. An optimal guessing strategy was defined as one which minimizes the number of average number of guesses in ... 
Incorporating justintime into a decision support system environment
(Elsevier BV, 1991)In this paper, a Decision Support System is proposed for a JustInTime production system. The Decision Support System includes three components: database, model base, and interface. The database contains the predefined ... 
Inventory control under substitutable demand: A stochastic game application
(John Wiley & Sons, 2002)Substitutable product inventory problem is analyzed using the concepts of stochastic game theory. It is assumed that there are two substitutable products that are sold by different retailers and the demand for each product ... 
Investments viewed as growth processes
(Taylor & Francis, 1995)For modeling investment decision situations, we present a mathematical basis that views the cash flow sequences as growth processes. We first emphasize the pedagogical value of the basic model by showing that all traditionally ... 
Marketdriven approach based on Markov decision theory for optimal use of resources in software development
(Institution of Engineering and Technology, 2004)Changes in requirements may have a severe impact on development processes. For example, if requirements change during the course of a software development activity, it may be necessary to reschedule development activities ... 
Matchup scheduling under a machine breakdown
(Elsevier, 1999)When a machine breakdown forces a modified flow shop (MFS) out of the prescribed state, the proposed strategy reschedules part of the initial schedule to match up with the preschedule at some point. The objective is to ... 
A new lower bounding scheme for the total weighted tardiness problem
(1998)We propose a new dominance rule that provides a sufficient condition for local optimality for the 1∥Σw1Ti problem. We prove that if any sequence violates the proposed dominance rule, then switching the violating jobs either ... 
Order of limits in reputations
(Springer, 2016)The fact that small departures from complete information might have large effects on the set of equilibrium payoffs draws interest in the adverse selection approach to study reputations in repeated games. It is well known ... 
Qualitative testcost sensitive classification
(Elsevier BV, 2010)This paper reports a new framework for testcost sensitive classification. It introduces a new loss function definition, in which misclassification cost and cost of feature extraction are combined qualitatively and the ... 
Qualitative testcost sensitive classification
(Bilkent University, 2008)Decision making is a procedure for selecting the best action among several alternatives. In many realworld problems, decision has to be taken under the circumstances in which one has to pay to acquire information. In ... 
Satisfying duedates in a job shop with sequencedependent family setups
(Taylor & Francis, 2003)This paper addresses job shop scheduling with sequence dependent family setups. Based on a simple, singlemachine dynamic scheduling problem, state dependent scheduling rules for the single machine problem are developed ... 
Testcost sensitive classification based on conditioned loss functions
(Springer, 200709)We report a novel approach for designing testcost sensitive classifiers that consider the misclassification cost together with the cost of feature extraction utilizing the consistency behavior for the first time. In this ... 
Voting as validation in robot programming
(Sage Publications Ltd., 199904)This paper investigates the use of voting as a conflictresolution technique for data analysis in robot programming. Voting represents an informationabstraction technique. It is argued that in some cases a voting approach ...
