Decision Engineering Report (DEG) Series

Decision Engineering Report (DEG) Series

 

<p>The 'Decision Engineering Report Series' from Cranfield University publishes the research results from the Centre for Decision Engineering in Enterprise Integration. The research centre aims to establish itself as the leader in applied decision engineering research. The group's client base includes: Airbus, BAE SYSTEMS, BOC Edwards, BT Exact, Corus, EDS (Electronic Data Systems), Ford Motor Company, GKN Aerospace, Ministry of Defence (UK MOD), Nissan Technology Centre Europe, Johnson Controls, PRICE Systems, Rolls-Royce, Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) and XR Associates. The intention of the report series is to disseminate the centre’s findings faster and with greater detail than regular publications. The reports are produced on the core research interests within the centre:</p> <ul> <li>Cost engineering</li> <li>Product engineering</li> <li>Applied soft computing</li> </ul> <p>Currently edited by:</p> <p>Professor Rajkumar Roy and Yuchun Xu <br />r.roy@cranfield.ac.uk <br />yuchun.xu@cranfield.ac.uk <br />Manufacturing Department <br />Cranfield University <br />Cranfield <br />Bedfordshire <br />MK43 OAL</p> <p>International Review Panel: <ul> International Panel members: <li>Joshua Knowles, University of Manchester</li> <li>Erel Avineri, University of the West of England</li> <li>Keshav Dahal, University of Bradford</li> <li>Ashraf Saad, Georgia Tech, USA</li> <li>Muhammad Sarfraz, King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals, Saudi Arabia</li> <li>Soumya Banerjee, Birla Institute of Technology, Mesra, India</li> <li>Mauro Dell'Orco, Polytechnic of Bari, Italy</li> <li>Nirupam Chakraborti, Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur, India</li> <li>Dr Stephen O T Ogaji, Cranfield University</li> <li>Dr. Phillip Burrell, Southbank University</li> <li>Dr. Basim Majeed, Intelligent Systems Research Group, BT Research Laboratories</li> <li>Dr. Goran Bezanov, Southbank University</li> <li>Qing Wang, Durham University</li> <li>Fredrik Elgh, Jönköping University, Sweden</li> <li>Raymond P.
