Short-Term Schedulability Analysis of Multiple Distiller Crude Oil Operations in Refinery With Oil Residency Time ConstraintPublication Year: 2009, Page(s):1 - 16
Cited by: Papers (25)
Because of the complexity of a short-term scheduling problem for crude oil operations, some constraints are ignored in modeling the system by the existing approaches, leading to an infeasible solution. To avoid this, the short-term scheduling problem can be studied in control theory perspective by viewing an operation decision in the schedule as a control. With this idea, this paper conducts the s... View full abstract»

This paper presents a new framework for design and validation of industrial automation systems based on systematic application of formal methods. The engineering methodology proposed in this paper is based on the component design of automated manufacturing systems from intelligent mechatronic components. Foundations of such componentspsila information infrastructure are the new IEC 61499 architect... View full abstract»
An Ant Colony Optimization Approach to a Grid Workflow Scheduling Problem With Various QoS RequirementsPublication Year: 2009, Page(s):29 - 43
Cited by: Papers (141)
Grid computing is increasingly considered as a promising next-generation computational platform that supports wide-area parallel and distributed computing. In grid environments, applications are always regarded as workflows. The problem of scheduling workflows in terms of certain quality of service (QoS) requirements is challenging and it significantly influences the performance of grids. By now, ... View full abstract»

This paper describes the application of known and novel prognostic algorithms on systems that can be described by low-dimensional, potentially nonlinear dynamics. The methods rely on estimating the conditional probability distribution of the output of the system at a future time given knowledge of the current state of the system. We show how to estimate these conditional probabilities using a vari... View full abstract»
A Hybrid of Cooperative Particle Swarm Optimization and Cultural Algorithm for Neural Fuzzy Networks and Its Prediction ApplicationsPublication Year: 2009, Page(s):55 - 68
Cited by: Papers (97)
This study presents an evolutionary neural fuzzy network, designed using the functional-link-based neural fuzzy network (FLNFN) and a new evolutionary learning algorithm. This new evolutionary learning algorithm is based on a hybrid of cooperative particle swarm optimization and cultural algorithm. It is thus called cultural cooperative particle swarm optimization (CCPSO). The proposed CCPSO metho... View full abstract»
Power Transformer Fault Classification Based on Dissolved Gas Analysis by Implementing Bootstrap and Genetic ProgrammingPublication Year: 2009, Page(s):69 - 79
Cited by: Papers (56)
This paper presents an intelligent fault classification approach to power transformer dissolved gas analysis (DGA), dealing with highly versatile or noise-corrupted data. Bootstrap and genetic programming (GP) are implemented to improve the interpretation accuracy for DGA of power transformers. Bootstrap preprocessing is utilized to approximately equalize the sample numbers for different fault cla... View full abstract»
Integrating a Piecewise Linear Representation Method and a Neural Network Model for Stock Trading Points PredictionPublication Year: 2009, Page(s):80 - 92
Cited by: Papers (45)
Recently, the piecewise linear representation (PLR) method has been applied to the stock market for pattern matching. As such, similar patterns can be retrieved from historical data and future prices of the stock can be predicted according to the patterns retrieved. In this paper, a different approach is taken by applying PLR to decompose historical data into different segments. As a result, tempo... View full abstract»

On April 10, 2006, Major General Bostick, the Commanding General of the United States Army Recruiting Command (USAREC), in conjunction with the Assistant Secretary of the Army for Manpower and Reserve Affairs, approved a new method of selecting individuals from within the Army for recruiting duty. Implementation currently waits for similar and current research concerning drill sergeants. Previousl... View full abstract»
Anomaly Detection and Diagnosis Algorithms for Discrete Symbol Sequences with Applications to Airline SafetyPublication Year: 2009, Page(s):101 - 113
Cited by: Papers (39)
We present a set of novel algorithms which we call sequenceMiner that detect and characterize anomalies in large sets of high-dimensional symbol sequences that arise from recordings of switch sensors in the cockpits of commercial airliners. While the algorithms that we present are general and domain-independent, we focus on a specific problem that is critical to determining the system-wide ... View full abstract»

Information fusion offers a promising solution to the development of a high-performance classification system. In this paper, the problem of multiple gait features fusion is explored with the framework of the factorial hidden Markov model (FHMM). The FHMM has a multiple-layer structure and provides an alternative to combine several gait features without concatenating them into a single augmented f... View full abstract»
Multicriteria Partner Selection in Virtual Organizations With Transportation Costs and Other Network InterdependenciesPublication Year: 2009, Page(s):124 - 129
Cited by: Papers (16)
In this correspondence, we study how the selection of partners in a virtual organization (VO) can be assisted through mixed-integer linear programming (MILP) models. Additionally to fixed and variable costs, we present extensions that accommodate transportation costs, capacity risk measures, and interorganizational dependencies such as the success of past collaboration. Experiences from a real cas... View full abstract»
