Aspect-Oriented Programming (AOP) has been proposed as a technique for improving separation of concerns in software and becomes a popular research topic. The AOP language bindings with implementation framework are generally available which allow you to directly use AOP with several programming languages such as Ruby, Squeak, Smalltalk, C, C++,(More)
Nursing scheduling problem (NSP) has been verified NP-Complete. The Nursing scheduling is a dynamic process interacting with parties iteratively to reflect the revised expectations and constrained rules. It is an orchestrating process which needs not only the scheduling algorithms and shifting methodologies but also the interaction and coordination. Based(More)
