  • About the Edition

    Decision Criteria and Optimal Inventory Processes provides a theoretical and practical introduction to decision criteria and inventory processes. Inventory theory is presented by focusing on the analysis and processes underlying decision criteria. Included are many state-of-the-art criterion models as background material. These models are extended to the authors" newly developed fuzzy criterion models which constitute a general framework for the study of stochastic inventory models with special focus on the real world inventory theoretic reservoir operations problems. The applications of fuzzy criterion dynamic programming models are illustrated by reservoir operations including the integrated network of reservoir operation and the open inventory network problems. An interesting feature of this book is the special attention it pays to the analysis of some theoretical and applied aspects of fuzzy criteria and dynamic fuzzy criterion models, thus opening up a new way of injecting the much-needed type of non-cost, intuitive, and easy-to-use methods into multi-stage inventory processes. This is accomplished by constructing and optimizing the fuzzy criterion models developed for inventory processes. Practitioners in operations research, management science, and engineering will find numerous new ideas and strategies for modeling real world multi- stage inventory problems, and researchers and applied mathematicians will find this work a stimulating and useful reference.

ADVERTISEMENTS: The decision-making process though a logical one is a difficult task. All decisions can be categorized into the following three basic models. (1) The Rational/Classical Model. (2) The Administrative or Bounded Rationality Model. ADVERTISEMENTS: (3) The Retrospective Decision-Making Model. All models are beneficial for understanding the nature of decision-making processes in.

Multiple-criteria decision-making (MCDM) or multiple-criteria decision analysis (MCDA) Decision Criteria and Optimal Inventory Processes book a sub-discipline of operations research that explicitly evaluates multiple conflicting criteria in decision Decision Criteria and Optimal Inventory Processes book (both in daily Decision Criteria and Optimal Inventory Processes book and in settings such as business, government and medicine).

Conflicting criteria are typical in evaluating options: cost or price is usually one of the main criteria, and. The following research utilizes Multi-Criteria Decision Making (MCDM) in order to build a business strategy to reduce product costs, improve competitiveness, focus on production planning based on actual operating capacity and flexible adjustment according to the market, maximize the labor productivity of technology workshops, reduce costs and inventory, and focus on producing many Author: Chia-Nan Wang, Hsiung-Tien Tsai, Thanh-Phong Ho, Van-Thanh Nguyen, Ying-Fang Huang.

Effective inventory management is at the core of supply chain management excellence. in-process, partner inventories and more, truly sits at the intersection of demand and supply.

Yet our understanding of inventory management practices in many respects still has a long way to go. In many decision processes there is a hierarchy of decision makers and decisions are taken at different levels in thishierarchy. Multilevel Optimization focuses on the whole hierarchy structure.

From the Publisher: The past decade has seen considerable theoretical and applied research on Markov decision processes, as well as the growing use of these models in ecology, economics, communications engineering, and other fields where outcomes are uncertain and sequential decision-making processes.

Decision making and problem solving are ongoing processes of evaluating situations or problems, considering alternatives, making choices, and following them up with the necessary actions.

Sometimes the decision‐making process is extremely short, and mental reflection is essentially instantaneous. Decision Tree Induction This section introduces a decision tree classifier, which is a simple yet widely used classification technique.

How a Decision Tree Works To illustrate how classification with a decision tree works, consider a simpler version of the vertebrate classification problem described in the previous sec-tion.

Inventory management can help business be more profitable by lowering their cost of goods sold and/or by increasing sales. Inventory Management is “making sure that items are available when customers call for it, but not too much stock so that inventory turnover goals are met” - Juhi Gonzales, Inventory Management and Systems Consulting.
