An Approach for determining process economy parameters of multivariate loss functions

Özkan, Gökçe
The aim of this study is to provide an effective method for determining parameters of multivariate loss functions, which are related with process economics. The loss functions are widely used in product and process design and other quality engineering applications. Although there are several studies about different types of loss functions, there is a lack of studies on determining cost matrix parameters of these functions. For this purpose, we propose a method based on multi-objective decision making tools. We illustrate use of the method on two example problems, and discuss their results.


An Interactive approach to two-response product and process design optimization with statistical inferences
Özateş, Melis; Köksal, Gülser; Köksalan, Murat; Department of Industrial Engineering (2015)
In this study, an interactive approach has been developed for two-response product and process design optimization problems treating the single response problems as a special case. This approach considers preferences of the decision maker explicitly and the correlation between the responses. It uses a predefined set of objectives that are commonly encountered in the literature and industrial applications. However, instead of presenting all objective values at each iteration, a set of performance measures ar...
Assessment of software process and metrics to support quantitative understanding
TARHAN, AYÇA; Demirörs, Onur (2007-11-07)
The use of process metrics and data for quantitative understanding is not very straightforward. If we have an identification of process components and follow a measurement process, we are likely to use process metrics and data effectively. But if we don't have these practices, we can hardly trust oil process metrics and data for quantitative understanding. In this paper, we summarize eight case studies that we performed in different industrial contexts. The case studies rely on an assessment approach that i...
An improved method for inference of piecewise linear systems by detecting jumps using derivative estimation
Selcuk, A. M.; Öktem, Hüseyin Avni (Elsevier BV, 2009-08-01)
Inference of dynamical systems using piecewise linear models is a promising active research area. Most of the investigations in this field have been stimulated by the research in functional genomics. In this article we study the inference problem in piecewise linear systems. We propose first identifying the state transitions by detecting the jumps of the derivative estimates, then finding the guard conditions of the state transitions (thresholds) from the values of the state variables at the state transitio...
A simulation study on marginalized transition random effects models for multivariate longitudinal binary data
Yalçınöz, Zerrin; İlk Dağ, Özlem; Department of Statistics (2008)
In this thesis, a simulation study is held and a statistical model is fitted to the simulated data. This data is assumed to be the satisfaction of the customers who withdraw their salary from a particular bank. It is a longitudinal data which has bivariate and binary response. It is assumed to be collected from 200 individuals at four different time points. In such data sets, two types of dependence -the dependence within subject measurements and the dependence between responses- are important and these are...
An approach for decentralized process modeling
Turetken, Oktay; Demirörs, Onur (2007-05-20)
This paper describes a method for organizations to perform process modeling in a decentralized and concurrent manner. The approach is based on the idea that modeling organizations' processes can be performed by individuals actually performing the processes. Instead of having a central and devoted group of people to analyze, understand, model and improve processes, real performers are held responsible to model and improve their own processes concurrently. The paper also summarizes the lessons learned by appl...
