    Intelligent Fractional-Order Controller for SMES Systems in Renewable Energy-Based Microgrid

    Aadel M. Alatwi1,2, Abualkasim Bakeer3, Sherif A. Zaid1,*, Ibrahem E. Atawi1, Hani Albalawi1,4, Ahmed M. Kassem5

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.140, No.2, pp. 1807-1830, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2024.048521

    Abstract An autonomous microgrid that runs on renewable energy sources is presented in this article. It has a superconducting magnetic energy storage (SMES) device, wind energy-producing devices, and an energy storage battery. However, because such microgrids are nonlinear and the energy they create varies with time, controlling and managing the energy inside them is a difficult issue. Fractional-order proportional integral (FOPI) controller is recommended for the current research to enhance a standalone microgrid’s energy management and performance. The suggested dedicated control for the SMES comprises two loops: the outer loop, which uses the FOPI to regulate… More >

    Étude observationnelle des comportements familiaux durant la phase palliative terminale

    A. Van Lander, A. Bioy, V. Guastella

    Psycho-Oncologie, Vol.16, No.2, pp. 234-242, 2022, DOI:10.3166/pson-2022-0196

    Abstract Accompagner l’entourage d’un patient atteint de maladie grave, évolutive ou terminale est une obligation légale (loi 99, art. L. 1er B) et nécessite des professionnels éclairés sur les mécanismes spécifiques. Objectif : découvrir les mécanismes psychoadaptatifs familiaux lors de la phase terminale. Méthode : la méthode était qualitative avec une observation participante dans un service de soins palliatifs entre 2016 et 2020. Résultats : l’observation de 649 familles révèle des détresses spécifiques, une relation soignante et/ou fusionnelle et un pacte dénégatif sur le mourir. L’absence de communication familiale sur le mourir est protectrice. Conclusion : More >

    Delivery Service Management System Using Google Maps for SMEs in Emerging Countries

    Sophea Horng, Pisal Yenradee*

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.75, No.3, pp. 6119-6143, 2023, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2023.038764

    Abstract This paper proposes a Delivery Service Management (DSM) system for Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) that own a delivery fleet of pickup trucks to manage Business-to-Business (B2B) delivery services. The proposed DSM system integrates four systems: Delivery Location Positioning (DLP), Delivery Route Planning (DRP), Arrival Time Prediction (ATP), and Communication and Data Sharing (CDS) systems. These systems are used to pinpoint the delivery locations of customers, plan the delivery route of each truck, predict arrival time (with an interval) at each delivery location, and communicate and share information among stakeholders, respectively. The DSM system deploys… More >

    Applying Job Shop Scheduling to SMEs Manufacturing Platform to Revitalize B2B Relationship

    Yeonjee Choi1, Hyun Suk Hwang2, Chang Soo Kim1,*

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.74, No.3, pp. 4901-4916, 2023, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2023.035219

    Abstract A small and medium enterprises (SMEs) manufacturing platform aims to perform as a significant revenue to SMEs and vendors by providing scheduling and monitoring capabilities. The optimal job shop scheduling is generated by utilizing the scheduling system of the platform, and a minimum production time, i.e., makespan decides whether the scheduling is optimal or not. This scheduling result allows manufacturers to achieve high productivity, energy savings, and customer satisfaction. Manufacturing in Industry 4.0 requires dynamic, uncertain, complex production environments, and customer-centered services. This paper proposes a novel method for solving the difficulties of the SMEs… More >

    Two-Stage PLS-SEM and Fuzzy AHP Approach to Investigate Vietnamese SMEs’ Export Competitiveness

    Phi-Hung Nguyen1,2,*

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.72, No.2, pp. 4107-4123, 2022, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2022.026286

    Abstract Vietnam is paying great to the seafood exporting sector, offering various significant production advantages, concluding that it is critical to understand the competitiveness of the target market and implement effective strategies. However, due to COVID 19, the value of Vietnamese pangasius exports resulted in low and unpredictable profits for pangasius farmers. It is obvious to recognize competitiveness as Multi-Criteria Decision Making (MCDM) problem in the uncertain business environment. Therefore, this study is the first to propose a two-staged Partial Least Squares-Structural Equation Modeling (PLS-SEM) and Fuzzy Analytic Hierarchy Process (FAHP) analysis to identify potential criteria… More >

    Strengthening Software Make vs. Buy Decision: A Mixed-Method Approach

    Farooq Javeed1, Basit Shahzad2, Asadullah Shaikh3, Mana Saleh Al Reshan3,*, Saba Ahmad1, Hani Alshahrani3, Khairan Rajab3

    Intelligent Automation & Soft Computing, Vol.32, No.1, pp. 193-205, 2022, DOI:10.32604/iasc.2022.021769

    Abstract Over the past few decades, multiple software development process models, tools, and techniques have been used by practitioners. Despite using these techniques, most software development organizations still fail to meet customer’s needs within time and budget. Time overrun is one of the major reasons for project failure. There is a need to come up with a comprehensive solution that would increase the chances of project success. However, the “make vs. buy” decision can be helpful for “in time” software development. Social media have become a popular platform for discussion of all sorts of topics, so software… More >

    Modernization Framework to Enhance the Security of Legacy Information Systems

    Musawwer Khan1, Islam Ali1, Wasif Nisar1, Muhammad Qaiser Saleem2, Ali S. Ahmed2, Haysam E. Elamin3, Waqar Mehmood4, Muhammad Shafiq5,*

    Intelligent Automation & Soft Computing, Vol.32, No.1, pp. 543-555, 2022, DOI:10.32604/iasc.2022.016120

    Abstract Due to various issues such as lack of agility, low performance, security issues, and high maintenance costs, the organization replaces its legacy information system (LIS). However, with the expansion of information technology, the security of the old system has received great attention. The protection of legacy data and information is critical to the organization. However, achieving safety through modernization, redevelopment, or redesign of LIS is a time-consuming and costly solution, especially in small and medium enterprises (SMEs). In addition, newly developed systems often lose inherent business rules, data integrity, and user trust. In this paper,… More >

    CMMI Compliant Workflow Models to Track and Control Changes

    Islam Ali1, Syed Muhammad Ali1, Waqar Mehmood2, Wasif Nisar1, Muhammad Qaiser Saleem3, Majzoob K. Omer3, Mahmood Niazi4, Muhammad Shafiq5, Jin-Ghoo Choi5,*

    Intelligent Automation & Soft Computing, Vol.31, No.1, pp. 387-405, 2022, DOI:10.32604/iasc.2022.015955

    Abstract The Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) is a renowned Software Process Improvement (SPI) framework. Research studies have revealed that CMMI adoption needs a lot of resources in terms of training, funds, and professional workers. However, the software SMEs (SSMEs) have few resources and cannot adopt CMMI. One of the challenges of adopting CMMI is that CMMI tells “What to do?” as requirements to be met, and leaves “How to do?” to the implementers. The software industry especially SSMEs faces difficulties in successfully implementing various process areas (PAs) particularly Configuration Management Process Area (CM-PA). SG-2 (Track… More >

    Workflow Models to Establish Software Baselines in SSMEs

    Islam Ali1, Wasif Nisar1, Waqar Mehmood2, Muhammad Qaiser Saleem3, Ali S. Ahmed3, Haysam E. Elamin4, Mahmood Niazi5, Muhammad Shafiq6,*

    Intelligent Automation & Soft Computing, Vol.28, No.3, pp. 693-713, 2021, DOI:10.32604/iasc.2021.016381

    Abstract Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) is used for Software Process Improvement (SPI) worldwide. Research reveals that CMMI adoption needs a lot of resources in terms of training, funds, and professional workers. Software Small & Medium Enterprises (SSMEs) cannot, however, reserve resources for the purpose. One of the challenges of CMMI adoption is that CMMI identifies “What-to-Do” as a requirement to fulfill and leaves “How-To-Do” to implementers. Implementation of Configuration Management Process Area (CM-PA), being one of the umbrella activities, presents more obstacles generally to the software industry and particularly to SSMEs as compared to other PAs.… More >
