Using Criticalities as a Heuristic for Answer Set Programming
SABUNCU, ORKUNT; Alpaslan, Ferda Nur; AKMAN, VAROL (2004-01-08)
Answer Set Programming is a new paradigm based on logic programming. The main component of answer set programming is a system that finds the answer sets of logic programs. During the computation of an answer set, systems are faced with choice points where they have to select a literal and assign it a truth value. Generally, systems utilize some heuristics to choose new literals at the choice points. The heuristic used is one of the key factors for the performance of the system. A new heuristic for answer s...
A decision matrix based method for determining priorities of quality improvement projects in manufacturing with inspection error and rework
Dolgun, Leman Esra; Köksal, Gülser; Department of Industrial Engineering (2006)
The purpose of this study was to develop a decision model for early-stage breast cancer patients. This model provides an opportunity for comparing two main treatment options, mastectomy and lumpectomy, with respect to quality of life by making use of Decision Theoretic Techniques. A Markov chain was constructed to project the clinical history of breast carcinoma following surgery. Then, health states used in the model were characterized by transition probabilities and utilities for quality of life. A Multi ...
An integrated incident detection methodology with gps-equipped vehicles
Demiroluk, Sami; Tüydeş Yaman, Hediye; Department of Civil Engineering (2007)
Recurrent congestion in urban traffic networks, especially on arterials, is a growing problem. Non-recurrent congestion, mainly due to incidents, only aggravates the problem. Any solution requires monitoring of the network, for which many developing countries, such as Turkey, do not have the traditional surveillance systems on arterials mainly due to high costs. An alternative solution is the utilization of Global Positioning System (GPS) technology, which is increasingly used in traffic monitoring. It is e...
An Object-oriented framework for functional mock-up interface co-simulation
Aslan, Memduha; Oğuztüzün, Mehmet Halit S.; Durak, Umut; Department of Computer Engineering (2016)
Integration of subsystem or component models in a simulation environment is a crucial task in system development. Variation in model interfaces due to the use of a variety of modeling tools from different vendors complicates this task. Functional Mockup Interface (FMI) is a standard that lays out a tool-independent interface for dynamic system models. In practice, the developers of FMI-compliant models, known as Functional Mockup Units (FMUs), need guidance. In this thesis, an object-oriented framework for ...
