This paper presents a knowledge-based Decision Support System (DSS) for classification, formulation and solution of multiple objective linear programming problems. The authors propose a generic taxonomy which is used to classify commonly encountered types of linear programming problems. Classification of the problem, vis-a-vis the proposed taxonomy, is(More)
This paper considers the problem of schedtding multiple products on several dilTerent production lines (i.e. the n-job, m-machine scheduli problem) wheo multiple objectives exist. Spectically a goal programming model is developed and demonstrated via a case example. The production setting modeled in this paper includes three separate production lines that(More)
In this paper an integer, non-linear mathematical programming model is developed to allocate emergency medical service (EMS) ambulances to sectors within a county in order to meet a government-mandated response-time criterion. However, in addition to the response-time criterion, the model also reflects criteria for budget and work-load, and, since ambulance(More)
The growing usage of computer networks is requiring improvements in network technologies and management techniques so users will receive high quality service. As more individuals transmit data through a computer network, the quality of service received by the users begins to degrade. A major aspect of computer networks that is vital to quality of service is(More)
