There is an abundance of business process modeling techniques that capture and address different aspects of a business process. A limited number of these process models allow further quantitative analysis, and only a few enable structured process improvement. This paper reviews and classifies the main techniques for business process modeling with regard to(More)
The difficulties faced by existing Multi-objective Evolutionary Algorithms (MOEAs) in handling many-objective problems relate to the inefficiency of selection operators, high computational cost and difficulty in visualization of objective space. While many approaches aim to counter these difficulties by increasing the fidelity of the standard selection(More)
A business incurs much higher charges when attempting to win new customers than to retain existing ones. As a result, much research has been invested into new ways of identifying those customers who have a high risk of churning. However customer retention efforts have also been costing organisations large amounts of resource. In response to these issues,(More)
The selective detection and quantification of macromolecular targets is a fundamental biological mechanism in nature. Molecularly imprinted polymers (MIPs) have been identified as one of the most promising synthetic alternatives to bioreceptors. However, expanding this methodology towards selective recognition of bulky templates such as proteins appears to(More)
Collaboration means working together to achieve a common goal or to solve a problem, and in modern businesses, it is an important factor for information sharing and quality. This is due to the ability of collaborations to shape the structure and behaviour of organisations through the pooling of expertise and standardising of work patterns. Grounded on(More)
Dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs) have received considerable attention as a cost-effective alternative to conventional inorganic solar cells. These cells operate on a process similar to photosynthesis, the process by which green plants generate chemical energy from sunlight. A thick semiconductor nanoparticle film provides a large surface area for the(More)
This paper emphasizes the necessity of formally bringing qualitative and quantitative criteria of ergonomic design together, and provides a novel complementary design framework with this aim. Within this framework, different design criteria are viewed as optimization objectives, and design solutions are iteratively improved through the cooperative efforts(More)
Traditional methods often employed to solve complex real world problems tend to inhibit elaborate exploration of the search space. They can be expensive and often results in sub-optimal solutions. Evolutionary computation (EC) is generating considerable interest for solving real world engineering problems. They are proving robust in delivering global(More)
