Workload control (WLC) systems constitute a framework mainly for the inputoutput control systems which regulate both jobs̕ queues into the workshop and the flow of finished goods out of the workshop. This study is concerned with the job entry and release level of WLC which maintains a pool of unreleased jobs for the controlled release of jobs. While most of the studies in WLC concepts deal with the centralized workload control, our study decentralizes the job entry and release control and makes workstations more powerful in schedule decision making. Job̕s information is sent to the workstations by mediator which is the supervisor of the workstation. Both mediator and work stations are represented by agents in a distributed system. Jobs̕ routing information is assumed to be known in advance. The developed system is verified and validated by means of test runs. Results are analyzed as well.

Moving object identification and event recognition in video surveillance systems
Örten, Burkay Birant; Alatan, Abdullah Aydın; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2005)
This thesis is devoted to the problems of defining and developing the basic building blocks of an automated surveillance system. As its initial step, a background-modeling algorithm is described for segmenting moving objects from the background, which is capable of adapting to dynamic scene conditions, as well as determining shadows of the moving objects. After obtaining binary silhouettes for targets, object association between consecutive frames is achieved by a hypothesis-based tracking method. Both of t...
Implementation of concurrent constraint transaction logic and its user interface
Altunyuva, Fethi; Karagöz, Pınar; Department of Computer Engineering (2006)
This thesis implements a logical formalism framework called Concurrent Constraint Transaction Logic (abbr.,CCTR) which was defined for modeling and scheduling of workflows under resource allocation and cost constraints and develops an extensible and flexible graphical user interface for the framework. CCTR extends Concurrent Transaction Logic and integrates with Constraint Logic Programming to find the correct scheduling of tasks that involves resource and cost constraints. The developed system, which integ...
Generating motion-economical plans for manual operations
Canan, Özgen; Birtürk, Ayşe Nur; Department of Computer Engineering (2005)
This thesis discusses applying AI planning tools for generating plans for manual operations. Expertise of motion economy domain is used to select good plans among feasible ones. Motion economy is a field of industrial engineering, which deals with observing, reporting and improving manual operations. Motion economy knowledge is organized in principles regarding the sequences and characteristics of motions, arrangement of workspace, design of tools etc. A representation scheme is developed for products, work...
A measurement framework for component oriented software systems
Salman, Nael; Doğru, Ali Hikmet; Department of Computer Engineering (2006)
A measurement framework is presented for component oriented (CO) software systems. Fundamental concepts in component orientation are defined. The factors that influence CO systems’ structural complexity are identified. Metrics quantifying and characterizing these factors are defined. A set of properties that a CO complexity metric must satisfy are defined. Metrics are evaluated first using the set of properties defined in this thesis and also using the set of properties defined by Tian and Zelkowitz in [84]...
An automated tool for information security management system
Erkan, Ahmet; Arifoğlu, Ali; Department of Information Systems (2006)
This thesis focuses on automation of processes of Information Security Management System. In accordance with two International Standards, ISO/IEC 27001:2005 and ISO/IEC 17799:2005, to automate the activities required for a documented ISMS as much as possible helps organizations. Some of the well known tools in this scope are analyzed and a comparative study on them including “InfoSec Toolkit”, which is developed for this purpose in the thesis scope, is given. “InfoSec Toolkit” is based on ISO/IEC 27001:2005...
