Users of mass rapid transit are often required to make transfers between different train lines to reach their destinations. Timetable synchronization minimizes delays during such transfers. This paper formulates a novel measure for timetable synchronization by means of a total passenger dissatisfaction index (TPDI); and the impact of such synchronization on the original unsynchronized timetable is...

Prevention of security breaches completely using the existing security technologies is unrealistic. As a result, intrusion detection is an important component in network security. However, many current intrusion detection systems (IDSs) are rule-based systems, which have limitations to detect novel intrusions. Moreover, encoding rules is time-consuming and highly depends on the knowledge of known ... View full abstract»

In the past few years, there has been an exponential increase in the amount of information available on the World Wide Web. This plethora of information can be extremely beneficial for users. However, the amount of human intervention that is currently required for this is inconvenient. Information extraction (IE) systems try to solve this problem by making the task as automatic as possible. Most o... View full abstract»

Finding realistic schedules for flexible job shop problems has attracted many researchers recently due to its nondeterministic polynomial time (NP) hardness. In this paper, we present an efficient approach for solving the multiple-objective flexible job shop by combining evolutionary algorithm and guided local search (GLS). Instead of applying random local search to find neighboring solutions, we ... View full abstract»

In this paper, we present a multiagent system aiming at assisting citizens in the current e-government scenario characterized by a huge amount of heterogeneous services that makes it difficult to quickly answer citizen queries. We show that the adoption of intelligent agent technology makes our system capable of helping a citizen in his search of services in such a way as to satisfy his interests ... View full abstract»

Setting the Processing Parameters in Injection Molding Through Multiple-Criteria Optimization: A Case StudyPublication Year: 2008, Page(s):710 - 715
Cited by: Papers (6)
In this correspondence, a case study involving statistical characterization and multiple criteria optimization on injection molding is presented. This case study is the first application of a method previously described in the literature involving data envelopment analysis geared toward setting design and process variables to meet several performance measures.

This correspondence presents a new approach that utilizes evolutionary computation and proportional-integral differential (PID) control to a multi-input multioutput (MIMO) nonlinear system. This approach is demonstrated through a laboratory helicopter called the twin rotor MIMO system (TRMS). The goals of control are to stabilize the TRMS in significant cross-couplings, reach a desired position, a... View full abstract»
