    Business operations have changed significantly over the last 30 years as technological and economic changes have driven increasing opportunities and competition. Most industrial companies have seen this change from product quality competition in the 1970s to product pricing competition in the 1980s to product availability and mix competition in the 1990s. Each new wave of competition has added new... View full abstract»

    Describes and tests the notion of a generic search interpreter (GSI). A GSI is an interpreter and an associated programming language with three characteristics: (1) any conceivable algorithmic search strategy can be programmed in the language, (2) any given program will work for any given search problem, and (3) perturbing any given program results in a feasible alternative program. These characte... View full abstract»

    We demonstrate the close links between the airline and the manufacturing industries in so far as some of their decision support problems are concerned. We show that the yield management problem for the airline characterized by perishable and limited resources has a counterpart in manufacturing although with some variations. In the process of establishing similarities we highlight the importance of... View full abstract»

    Route switching is an important issue to connection-oriented communication that needs to maintain a route for a certain period. This paper suggests a new approach to ease the route switching problems in a network with higher migration rate of hosts. By monitoring the signal strength of messages, a host in a route that receives an incoming message can detect possible route fluctuations locally. As ... View full abstract»

    The lack of infrastructure performance for Web-based applications often translates into lost revenues and customers. While a classic Web site could survive with 95% availability, an e-commerce solution could hardly last with a few hours of downtime in a week. For e-commerce, like any other new technology, there comes a time when the infrastructure must achieve unprecedented levels of reliability, ... View full abstract»
