A verification approach for dynamics of metamodel based conceptual models of the mission space
Eryılmaz, Utkan; Bilgen, Semih; Department of Information Systems (2011)
Conceptual models were introduced in the simulation world in order to describe the problem domain in detail before any implementation is attempted. One of the recent approaches for conceptual modeling of the military mission space is the KAMA approach which provides a process description, a UML based notation, and a supporting tool for developing conceptual models. The prominence of the approach stems from availability of guidance and applications in real life case studies. Although the credibility of a con...
A new framework for evaluation of field based academic performances of higher education institutions
Ömrüuzun, Fatih; Baykal, Nazife; Akkaya, Ayşen; Department of Information Systems (2011)
Measurement and evaluation of academic performance is an highly debated research area and results of the studies in this area are closely followed by a large segment of the society. In general, researches conducted in this domain evaluate higher education institutions as a whole, but such an approach actually represents an average performance of the research fields, which are actively studied by the members of institutions. This may be misleading, because academic performance varies for each university depe...
Research and design for a material sample information system appropriate to industrial design students
Akın, Izzettin Fazıl; Pedgley, Owaın Francıs; Department of Industrial Design (2013)
The material of a product is one of the most important elements of product design that an industrial designer considers. It is also a major aspect of product innovation. Unfortunately, most of today’s material selection systems have been built on a technical basis and with an engineering perspective on product design. Current research shows that a physical environment allowing industrial designers to interact with material samples would greatly enhance designers’ material judgements and expertise and, there...
Evolution of web search results within years
Altıngövde, İsmail Sengör; Ulusoy, Özgür (2011-01-01)
We provide a first large-scale analysis of the evolution of query results obtained from a real search engine at two distant points in time, namely, in 2007 and 2010, for a set of 630,000 real queries.
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...
