As an extension of the hybrid Genetic Algorithm-HGA proposed by Tang et al. (Comput. Math. Appl. 36 (1998) 11), this paper focuses on the critical techniques in the application of the GA to nonlinear programming (NLP) problems with equality and inequality constraints. Taking into account the equality constraints and embedding the information of infeasible(More)
Quality function deployment (QFD) is a planning and problem-solving tool that is gaining acceptance for translating customer requirements into the technical attributes of a product. Deriving the rating order of technical attributes from input variables is a crucial step in applying QFD. When the relative weights of customer requirements and the relationship(More)
Product planning is one of four important processes in new product development (NPD) using quality function deployment (QFD), which is a widely used customer-driven approach. In our opinion, the first problem to be solved is how to incorporate both qualitative and quantitative information regarding relationships between customer requirements (CRs) and(More)
This paper investigated an operating theater allocation problem with uncertain surgery duration and emergency demand. Under the consideration of surgery cancellation, a stochastic model was developed to minimize the total expected operating cost. A trade-off was sought between the total cost of opening operating rooms and the total overtime due to the(More)
Enterprises used to focus on technology when they deal with information security (InfoSec) risks. In recent years information security management system (ISMS) such as ISO27001 has been adopted to refine the roles of people and process under the paradigm of InfoSec. Some researchers have tried to address the importance of knowledge security protection.(More)
