Managing sustainable service improvements in manufacturing companies

Heiko Gebauer, Elgar Fleisch

The paper aims to provide a better understanding of how cognitive processes limit service improvements in typical product manufacturing companies.

Cybernetics of culture

James Rowe

The purpose of this paper is to argue that culture is our primeval management that has its roots the same desire for control that management does. The paper explores the…

Knowledge management: modeling the knowledge diffusion in community of practice

Nen‐Ting Huang, Chiu‐Chi Wei, Wei‐Kou Chang

To propose a model which can demonstrate the knowledge diffusion phenomenon in the community of practice.

Service‐oriented architecture is a driver for daily decision support

Annika Granebring, Péter Révay

A flexible platform for mixed‐integer non‐linear programming problems

Ralf Östermark

To propose a new algorithmic platform (minlp_machine) for complex mixed‐integer non‐linear programming (MINLP) problems.

Emerging innovative systems

Brian H. Rudall, C.J.H. Mann

This paper aims to review current research and developments with particular reference to emerging innovative management and information systems.

Newlook ASC, new WOSC address, machine translation

Alex M. Andrew

A reliable technique for solving third‐order dispersion equations

D. Lesnic

Initial value problems for the one‐dimensional third‐order dispersion equations are investigated using the reliable Adomian decomposition method (ADM).

Reconciliation of perception of information granules and granular mappings

Covering properties in intuitionistic fuzzy topological spaces

Francisco Gallego Lupiáñez

D.Çoker constructed the fundamental theory of intuitionistic fuzzy topological spaces. The purpose of this paper is to introduce a new concept of compactness and a…

A new look at the Heisenberg's uncertainty principle

Dwijesh K. Dutta Majumder, Swapan K. Dutta

Homomorphisms of fuzzy recognizers

S.R. Chaudhari

The purpose of this research paper is to develop an algorithm/methodology for the reduction of a fuzzy recognizer through an algebraic concept such as homomorphism.

Systems view, emergence and complexity

J. Korn

To describe a view of parts of the world as assemblies with emergent properties constructed from related properties or objects, and the modelling of production of emergent…

Time‐splitting procedures for the solution of the two‐dimensional transport equation

Mehdi Dehghan

The diffusion‐advection phenomena occur in many physical situations such as, the transport of heat in fluids, flow through porous media, the spread of contaminants in…

A simulation study of a new family of test statistics for the Behrens‐Fisher problem

Julio Angel Pardo, María del Carmen Pardo

To provide a new family of test statistics to solve the Behrens‐Fisher problem and to compare it with the classic test statistics through a different simulation studies.
