Introduction to Data Envelopment Analysis and Its Uses: With DeaSolver Software and References
ISBN: 9780387285801 / Angielski / Miękka / 354 str. Recent years have seen a great variety of applications of DEA (Data Envelopment Analysis) for use in evaluating the performances of many different kinds of entities engaged in many different activities in many different contexts in many different countries. One reason is that DEA has opened up possibilities for use in cases which have been resistant to other approaches because of the complex (often unknown) nature of the relations between multiple inputs and multiple outputs involved in many of these activities (which are often reported in noncommeasurable units). Examples include the... Recent years have seen a great variety of applications of DEA (Data Envelopment Analysis) for use in evaluating the performances of many different ...

This book results from my continuous and deep interest in multiple criteria decision making (MCDM). Eleven years ago I wrote in my p vious monograph: "This work results from my interest in the ?eld of vector optimization. I stumbled ?rst upon this subject in 1982 ... ]. I was attracted then by a gap between vector optimization used to serve as a formal model for multiple objective decision problems and the  cision problems themselves, the gap nonexistent in...

The Management of Transshipment Terminals: Decision Support for Terminal Operations in Finished Vehicle Supply Chains
ISBN: 9780387308531 / Angielski / Twarda / 177 str. 1.1 Freight Transshipment We observe an ongoing trend towards globalized industrial produc tion. Multinational companies aim at strategic competitive advantages by distributing their activities around the globe. As a result, the in dividual supply chains become longer and more complex. Next to the supply chain reliability, companies try to keep supply chains cost effi cient and responsive, i.e. warrant short order fulfillment lead times (Siirie and Wagner, 2005). The above goals dictate low inventory levels at the stages of a supply chain as well as a high frequency of transports between the...

Handbook on Modelling for Discrete Optimization
ISBN: 9780387329413 / Angielski / Twarda / 434 str. The primary reason for producing this book is to demonstrate and commu nicate the pervasive nature of Discrete Optimisation. It has applications across a very wide range of activities. Many of the applications are only known to specialists. Our aim is to rectify this. It has long been recognized that ''modelling" is as important, if not more important, a mathematical activity as designing algorithms for solving these discrete optimisation problems. Nevertheless solving the resultant models is also often far from straightforward. Although in recent years it has become viable to solve many...

Metaheuristic Procedures for Training Neural Networks
ISBN: 9780387334158 / Angielski / Twarda / 252 str. Artificial neural networks (ANNs) offer a general framework for representing nonlinear mappings from several input variables to several output variables, and they can be considered as an extension of the many conventional mapping techniques. In addition to many considerations on their biological foundations and their really wide spectrum of applications, constructing appropriate ANNs can be seen as a really hard problem. A distinguished task in building ANNs is the tuning of a set of parameters known as weights. This will be the main focus of the present book. The trained ANNs can be...
