    In this paper, according to the requirements of university volleyball sport performance assessments, a grey incidence model is developed to analyze the influence factors of university volleyball teams' performance based on the characteristics of the university volleyball teams. Then, the AHP (Analytic Hierarchy Process) method is used to compute the weights of each assessment criterion of universi... View full abstract»

  • Performance evaluation with cost estimation for supervised systems

    Publication Year: 2012, Page(s):6 - 11
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (351 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Supervisory control theory deals with automated synthesis of models of supervisory controllers that ensure safe and nonblocking behavior of the supervised system. Typically, (large) supervised systems cannot be guaranteed to meet elaborated performance requirements, as ensuring them during the synthesis procedure is a costly undertaking. We propose a model-based systems engineering framework that ... View full abstract»

    In this paper, in order to solve the problem that based in favor subjective and standards are not comprehensive in the strategic supplier selection, we established the indicator system for the selection of the strategic supplier by quantitative and qualitative methods, and proposed a supplier selection model based on several stage selection and grey relational analysis. Then we got the correlation... View full abstract»

  • Functional model for zero-sum game and its matrix solution concerning uncertain information

    Publication Year: 2012, Page(s):17 - 23
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (402 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    A novel matrix solution is developed for the zero-sum game concerning uncertain information. Specifically, a new functional model for the game with grey information is introduced, which contains uncertain variables because of information shortage. Additionally, the matrix solution is designed for the functional model in which the players' optimal probabilities of mixed strategies and optimal profi... View full abstract»

    This study investigates the role of psychological empowerment in the customer evaluation. To test effect, employees and customers were surveyed in 4S stores. We aggregated the employee-individual and customer-individual level data to a higher unit level, and a gray preference model was proposed to explain the role of empowerment in customer evaluation. This study demonstrates that customer loyalty... View full abstract»

    The road network of a small town is represented as a directed graph where each road junction is a vertex and each road segment (which has a length and a priority value) is a directed edge. We assume that there are several plows available to service the roads. We seek to compute an optimal allocation of routes to plows. Each route begins and ends at the same (depot) vertex. The union of all plow ro... View full abstract»

    Auditing is a continuous process that involves collection of audit evidences. Electronic audit evidence (EAE) is a main form of audit evidence in an informationization environment. Quick and accurate electronic audit evidence in an informationization environment has become an important decision problem for auditors in today's economy. This paper provides optimized audit evidence gathering method b... View full abstract»

  • A new slip ratio observer and its application in electric vehicle wheel slip control

    Traction motor systems for electric vehicles provides fast torque response that may let the driver input result in excessive propelling or regenerative braking torque, which can reduce tire-road adherence. The same situation can also occur due to excessive wheel slip that tends to spin or skid the wheels, resulting in safety issues or energy losses. However, to measure the slip ratios for vehicle ...

    This paper describes the development of a dexterous endoscopic parallel manipulator for laparoscopic surgery using rigid mechanism. Endoscopic parallel manipulator is developed based on the concept of virtual chain and screw theory. The inverse and forward kinematics solutions are derived analytically and numerically respectively. Also the singularity analysis is investigated. The known problem of... View full abstract»

    Using `Simultaneous Localization and Mapping' (SLAM), mobile robots can become truly autonomous in the exploration of their environment. However, once these environments becomes too large, Multi-Robot SLAM becomes a requirement. This paper will outline how a mobile robot should decide when best to merge its maps with another robot's upon rendezvous, as opposed to doing so immediately. This decisio... View full abstract»

    The aim of this paper is to introduce a nonlinear error framework for nonholonomic mobile robots for which a robust tracking controller is synthesized such that the overall feedback error system is globally asymptotically stable (GAS); this, in turn, accomplishes the desired trajectory tracking of the control, since the errors are driven to the equilibrium. In contrast to locally asymptotically st... View full abstract»
