Situated in the concurrent engineering field, this paper presents an integrated Computer Aided chain for Human-centered design. By using specific methods and software tools, integrating digital mannequin simulation into a Computer Supported Collaborative Workshop in design, we show that it is possible to develop the project, the product, the process and the(More)
User modeling and user adaptive interaction has become a central research issue to understand users as they interact with technology. The importance of the development of well adapted interfaces to several kinds of users and the differences that characterize them is the basis of the successful interaction. User Personas is a technique that allows the(More)
Under the National Forest Management Act of 1979, the USDA Forest Service is charged with maintaining viable populations of all existing native vertebrate species on lands they administer. Accomplishment of this responsibility requires complete assessment of all federally authorized, funded, or implemented projects that may jeopardize the continued(More)
Current manufacturing scheduling has still difficulties to deal with real-world situations and, hence, human intervention is required to maintain real-time adaptation and optimization, to efficiently adapt to the inherent complex system dynamics. In this paper the prototype of an Adaptive Decision Support System for Interactive Scheduling with MetaCognition(More)
User modeling and user adaptive interaction research areas are becoming crucial applied issues to understand and support users as they interact with technology. Modeling the decisions to be made and the constraints placed by market globalization in a way that can address the needs of all stakeholders has been a long time area of academic and industrial(More)
Contemporary manufacturing scheduling has still limitations in real-world environments where disturbances on working conditions could occur over time. Therefore, human intervention is required to maintain real-time adaptation and optimization and efficiently adapt to the inherent dynamic of markets. This paper addresses the problem of incorporating rush(More)
Manufacturing environments require a real-time adaptation and optimization method to dynamically and intelligently maintain the current scheduling plan feasible. This way, the organization keeps clients satisfied and achieves its objectives (costs are minimized and profits maximized). This paper proposes an optimization approach - Selection Constructive(More)
