Multiobjective Decision Making: Theory and Methodology
ISBN: 9780486462899 / Angielski / Miękka / 406 str. This firstrate text explores the theory and methodology of systems engineering in evaluating alternative courses of action and associated decisionmaking policies. It treats criteria as multidimensional, rather than scalar, in the development of normative theories. These contribute to a behavioral theory of decision making and provide guidance for exercising judgment.
An introductory discussion of the systemic approach to judgment and decision is followed by explorations of psychological value measurements, utility, classical decision analysis, and vector optimization theory. The second... This firstrate text explores the theory and methodology of systems engineering in evaluating alternative courses of action and associated decisionma...

Constrained Markov Decision Processes
ISBN: 9780849303821 / Angielski / Twarda / 256 str. This book provides a unified approach for the study of constrained Markov decision processes with a finite state space and unbounded costs. Unlike the single controller case considered in many other books, the author considers a single controller with several objectives, such as minimizing delays and loss, probabilities, and maximization of throughputs. It is desirable to design a controller that minimizes one cost objective, subject to inequality constraints on other cost objectives. This framework describes dynamic decision problems arising frequently in many engineering fields. A thorough...

Reliability and Warranties: Methods for Product Development and Quality Improvement
ISBN: 9780849371493 / Angielski / Twarda / 195 str. Our modern view of quality is a multifaceted conglomeration of probability, planning, and perception. Although warranties are important first as an estimate and then as a measurement of reliability, most books on reliability and quality relegate the topic of warranties to a single chapter. Today s engineering student needs an integrated view that considers all aspects that contribute to overall quality along with methods to analyze, predict, measure, and improve each component.

Convexification and Global Optimization in Continuous and MixedInteger Nonlinear Programming: Theory, Algorithms, Software, and Applications
ISBN: 9781402010316 / Angielski / Twarda / 478 str. Interest in constrained optimization originated with the simple linear pro gramming model since it was practical and perhaps the only computationally tractable model at the time. Constrained linear optimization models were soon adopted in numerous application areas and are perhaps the most widely used mathematical models in operations research and management science at the time of this writing. Modelers have, however, found the assumption of linearity to be overly restrictive in expressing the realworld phenomena and problems in economics, finance, business, communication, engineering...

ISBN: 9781402076534 / Angielski / Twarda / 719 str. Combinatorial optimization is the process of finding the best, or optimal, so lution for problems with a discrete set of feasible solutions. Applications arise in numerous settings involving operations management and logistics, such as routing, scheduling, packing, inventory and production management, lo cation, logic, and assignment of resources. The economic impact of combi natorial optimization is profound, affecting sectors as diverse as transporta tion (airlines, trucking, rail, and shipping), forestry, manufacturing, logistics, aerospace, energy (electrical power, petroleum, and natural...

Networks of Interacting Machines: Production Organization in Complex Industrial Systems and Biological Cells
ISBN: 9789812564986 / Angielski / Twarda / 267 str. This review volume is devoted to a discussion of analogies and differences of complex production systems  natural, as in biological cells, or manmade, as in economic systems or industrial production. Taking this unified look at production is based on two observations: Cells and many biological networks are complex production units that have evolved to solve production problems in a reliable and optimal way in a highly stochastic environment. On the other hand, industrial production is becoming increasingly complex and often hard to predict. As a result, modeling and control of such...

Probability Models in Operations Research
ISBN: 9781420054897 / Angielski / Twarda / 224 str. Industrial engineering has expanded from its origins in manufacturing to transportation, health care, logistics, services, and more.

Feature Selection in Data Mining  Approaches Based on Information Theory
ISBN: 9783836427111 / Angielski / Miękka / 104 str. In many predictive modeling tasks, one has a fixed set of observations from which a vast, or even infinite, set of potentially predictive features can be computed. Of these features, often only a small number are expected to be useful in a predictive model. Models which use the entire set of features will almost certainly overfit on future data sets. The book presents streamwise feature selection which interleaves the process of generating new features with that of feature testing. Streamwise feature selection scales well to large feature sets. The book also describes how to use streamwise...
