    The use of technological tools in logistics has the intention of increasing visibility, capacity and control in the supply chain. Decrease of uncertainties due to asymmetric data has been the constant challenge of management. Misdiagnosis of situations and equipment, inaccurate production planning, shrinkage and counterfeiting are some of the common problems as a consequence of erroneous informati... View full abstract»

    Over the past ten couple of years, there is a variety of effort models proposed by academicians and practitioners at early stage of software development life cycle. Some addressed that efforts could be predicted using lines of codes (LOC) and COCOMO, others emphasized that it could be made using function point analysis (FPA) or others. The study seeks to develop a model that estimates software eff... View full abstract»

    United States border security has become a major concern in the recent past. In order to enhance border security, a system must be put in place to allow the tracking of shipments from origin to destination. Researchers at Purdue University, USA have developed a centralized, Internet based security tool which utilizes barcodes, RF technology, etc. to identify drivers and track the load integrity. T...

    The most common method for classifying inventory items is the annual dollar usage ranking method (ABC classification), which assumes, accordingly to the Pareto principle, that a small number of items account for a large share of the cost-volume, an intermediate category of moderate cost-volume items and a large number of low cost or usage items. However, using only one criterion for decision makin... View full abstract»

    Service innovation is critical to today's businesses. Unfortunately, the formulation and development of innovative service concepts have been impeded by the "semantic gap" between abstract business strategies and specific organizational and informational structures. To address this challenge, this paper explores the intersecting territories of service innovation, strategic management, and agent-or... View full abstract»

    MPEG-21 describes for us the future blueprint of multimedia application with the diversity of user preferences and environments. In fact, it is very necessary to form normative description of user preferences for multimedia application; however, there is no accepted model to provide formal and reliable representation. The method by statistical vector matrix (SVM) and interactive management is pres... View full abstract»

    Information and communication technologies (ICTs) are now widely accepted by developing countries as a critical tool in their efforts, so policy makers should develop ICT policies or e-policies in order to monitor and evaluate political, socio-economic and cultural impacts of ICT and also measure progress in the use of ICTs to achieve the development strategies and policies. The paper focuses on t... View full abstract»

    Hurst exponent is an important index to describe the fractional Brownian motion, many paper got the result based on big data sample. To small sample we designed a modified aggregated variance method to evaluate the Hurst exponent based on the aggregated variance method. We found that the new method could improve the R-squared when the sample data relatively small View full abstract»
