Technology audit activities arc carried out for assessment of firms' technological requirements, capacity or management capability. The aim of these assessments is to define the weaknesses of firms and develop actions in order to improve firms' technological capacity and/or technology management capability. Generally these activities are implemented with survey questionnaires. These questionnaires can be filled by managers of firms or can be implemented as an interview by independent experts. However, evaluating surveys and preparing useful comments related to results can consume lots of time and also contain lots of biases/subjectivity. In accordance to ease the decision making process and provide more verified/accurate results, we develop a methodology based on an Artificial Neural Network (ANN) algorithm which is aimed to behave like a decision maker. And in this study, we use a synthetic data set which is prepared for assessment of technology management capability of selected 70 Turkish firms.


Acquiring innovative software systems: Experiences from the field
Demirörs, Onur; Karagoz, N. Alpay; Gencel, Cigdem (2007-08-31)
Managing acquisition of software projects, containing innovative components, brings many challenges to acquirer organizations. Innovative software projects usually have unclear requirements and scope. They require stakeholders such as research institutes, software development organizations and the domain experts who work. together and need a flexible budget and time frame to be successful. As a result, the acquisition management activities such as estimation of the product size and the required development ...

Three models were developed and tested for the optimal capacity expansion planning in a hypothetical multiaquifer system. The response of the system was included in the models using response matrices. All models are 0/1 mixed-integer programming models and enable the determination of minimum capital investment and operation costs of well fields and associated pipeline facilities while satisfying a set of system constraints. The performances of the models are compared in terms of computational requirement...
Quantifying risk management process in a software organization
Yakın, Cenkler; Saatçioğlu, Ömer; Department of Industrial Engineering (2006)
This study presents a quantifying risk management process and its application on a software organization in terms of risk items mitigated, exposures covered, costs, and expected exposures covered. Risk management is defined as setting forth a discipline and environment of proactive decisions and actions to assess continuously what can go wrong (risks), to determine what risks are important to deal with, and to implement strategies to deal with those risks. Risk management can be applied in all of the busine...
Considering manufacturing cost and scheduling performance on a CNC turning machine
Gürel, Sinan (Elsevier BV, 2007-02-16)
A well known industry application that allows controllable processing times is the manufacturing operations on CNC machines. For each turning operation as an example, there is a nonlinear relationship between the manufacturing cost and its required processing time on a CNC turning machine. If we consider total manufacturing cost (F-1) and total weighted completion time (F-2) objectives simultaneously on a single CNC machine, making appropriate processing time decisions is as critical as making job sequencin...
Integrated framework to investigate value innovations
Dikmen Toker, İrem; Birgönül, Mustafa Talat (American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), 2005-04-01)
A conceptual framework has been developed to investigate value innovations within construction companies. A visual metaphor has been defined to model the innovation system where the elements of the model are objectives, strategies, environmental barriers/drivers, and organizational factors. The major idea is that none of the elements of the model alone can explain the innovative capability, and elements as well as their interrelations should be considered concurrently to investigate how the innovation syste...
