Strategic information systems (SIS) focus on the use of information system (IS) and information technology (IT) in the strategic management process in business organizations. The emphasis is on the strategic view of IS and IT and their impact on organizational strategy. Increased competition and advances in information technologies push for considerable(More)
With widespread increasing applications of mechanized tunneling in almost all ground conditions, prediction of tunnel boring machine (TBM) performance is required for time planning, cost control and choice of excavation method in order to make tunneling economical. Penetration rate is a principal measure of full-face TBM performance and is used to evaluate(More)
It was suggested in 2004 by some researchers that it might be possible to improve production systems performance by applying the first and second laws of thermodynamics to reduce system entropy. Then these laws were used to modify the economic order quantity (EOQ) model to derive an equivalent entropic order quantity (EnOQ). Moreover the political(More)
Soils support ecosystem functions such as plant growth and water quality because of certain physical, chemical, and biological properties. These properties have been studied at different spatial scales, including point scales to satisfy basic research needs, and regional scales to satisfy monitoring needs. Recently, soil property data for the entire USA(More)
Comparison and ranking of evolutionary applications, especially the multi-objective ones, is a prevalent method in the literature for benchmarking, validation, and etc. It usually refers to the inquiries on how it should be carried out and what indexes for which one of the applications could be used. The aim of this paper is to propose a Fuzzy Comparison(More)
Keeping Information Systems (IS) aligned with the corporations' strategy plan is a controversial issue. The aim of this paper is to prepare an expert system based on intelligent softbots and prepare and propose a portfolio of IS that has the maximum alignment with the strategy plan. Attaining such an issue, an expert system, which emerges through the(More)

Open shop scheduling problem is a common scheduling problem and has wide engineering applications in manufacturing. In some industrial cases, open shop scheduling could be a long scheduling problem as an aircraft production. In these cases, time value of money plays a significant role in determining a schedule cost. This paper addresses the problem of(More)
