    In this paper, we concentrate on discussing and developing a fuzzy rough multi-objective inventory model. We present some crisp equivalent models and a traditional algorithm based on an interactive fuzzy satisfying method to obtain the decision maker's satisfying solution. Then these are applied to a practical inventory problem in which all inventory costs, purchasing and selling prices in the obj... View full abstract»

    In the logistics system, the facility location problem, which can be used to determine the mode, the structure and the form of the whole logistics system, is a very important decision problem in the logistics network. Often uncertainty may be associated with demand, supply or various relevant costs. In some cases, roughness and fuzziness simultaneously appear in a system, in order to describe this...

    Asset allocation is an important decision problem in financial planning. In this paper, we study the multistage dynamic asset allocation problem which an investor is allowed to reallocate its wealth among a set of assets over finite discrete decision points, in which the stochastic return rates of the assets follow a Markov chain with nonstationary transition probabilities. The objective is to max... View full abstract»

  • A HMM based method to select solutions for function modules

    Publication Year: 2007, Page(s):30 - 34
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (404 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    A systematic method is developed to select the optimal combination of solutions for each function module existing in a pre-defined Product Function Model (PFM). Based on the definition of three fundamental modes for constructing a PFM, any PFM generated from customer requirements could be transformed into a uniform series- connection format. Then, Hidden Markov Model (HMM) is introduced to model t... View full abstract»

    Threat evaluation is the most important component of multi-target tracing (MTT) system, and target information is often imprecise and fuzzy. Many multiple attribute decision making (MADM) methods were utilized to evaluate the threat extent of aerial targets, such as the analytic hierarchy process (AHP), fuzzy optimum (FO), the technique of order preference by similarity to ideal solution (TOPSIS) ...

    In order to thrive in global markets enterprises have to distinguish themselves from their competitors not only by manufacturing high quality products at low costs, but also with a superior logistic performance. A high logistic performance is aided by means of Logistic Operating Curves (LOC). These can be utilized in modeling the effects of logistic measures. Based on the LOC, a Decision Support S...

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (354 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Composite indicators (CIs) have been widely used for benchmarking and performance comparisons in many different areas. Past studies have shown that the weighted product method may be a good choice in constructing CIs. However, a problem in its application is the determination of the weights for sub-indicators. This paper extends the weighted product method and proposes a multiplicative optimizatio... View full abstract»
