This paper discusses the first phase of a computer-assisted methodology for implementing CIM within small and medium enterprises. Some of the existing methodologies and tools were furnished by extra items to ease the process for small and medium size manufacturing companies. The methodology aims at using limited expertise, limited staff, and minimising cost. The existing analysis tools (i.e. DFDs, ELH, and tools in the GRAI methodology) were modified and a new tool was developed (PIFR) to shed light on the needs (and new forms) of integration of material and data flows in various parts of the organization. A knowledge base is developed for portability and ease of use. To demonstrate the methodology, a case study was carried out in a firm in apparel industry.


A Methodology for cross-resolution modeling in DEVS using event-B refinement
Kara, Ahmet; Oğuztüzün, Mehmet Halit S.; Alpdemir, Mahmut Nedim; Department of Computer Engineering (2014)
This thesis proposes a software engineering solution for implementing simulations via composition of models at different resolution levels with the help of formal methods. Our solution provides a systematic methodology that offers a well-defined sequence of stages to obtain executable converters for entity resolution mapping, given the types of entity attributes that are exchanged at model interfaces and the mapping specifications. Our methodology relies on Event-B as the formal specification language and D...
Best Practices Analysis of MOOCs
Eşfer Günay, Sezin; Çağıltay, Kürşat (null; 2016-11-16)
This paper reports the findings of a best practices analysis work conducted for an EU project which focuses on developing 100 Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) for Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs). With the aim to examine the best practices in EU, developed countries, Turkey and BRICS countries, following criteria have been considered: installed a platform for online trainings, online training in Information and Communication technology (ICT), experience in training of adults and training online conten...
A method for supporting data collection in user research studies at domestic environments
Öztoprak, Aydın; Erbuğ, Çiğdem; Department of Industrial Design (2011)
This thesis analyzes data collection tools and methods in domestic environments for smart product development processes. The aim of the study is to create a method for supporting data collection studies in user research of smart products at domestic environments. The study examines the utilization of information and communication technologies in ethnographic data collection methods at domestic environments with a qualitative approach. Two case studies are conducted to understand and analyze the effects of c...
A method for decentralized business process modeling
Türetken, Oktay; Demirörs, Onur; Department of Information Systems (2007)
This thesis study proposes a method for organizations to perform business process modeling in a decentralized and concurrent manner. The Plural method is based on the idea that organizations’ processes can be modeled by individuals actually performing the processes. Instead of having a central and devoted group of people to understand, analyze, model and improve processes, individuals are held responsible to model and improve their own processes concurrently. These individual models are then integrated to f...
A fuzzy database and knowledge base environment for intelligent retrieval
Koyuncu, M; Yazıcı, Adnan (2001-07-28)
We discuss an environment that permits flexible modeling and fuzzy querying of complex data and knowledge including uncertainty. With such an environment, one can have intelligent retrieval of information from knowledge- intensive applications. In this study, we specifically describe the details (the model, inference mechanism, etc,) of the fuzzy knowledge base system (coupled with a fuzzy object-oriented database system, namely FOOD) of this environment.
