    Spherical Fuzzy WASPAS-based Entropy Objective Weighting for International Payment Method Selection

    Phi-Hung Nguyen1,2,*, Thanh-Tuan Dang3, Kim-Anh Nguyen1, Hong-Anh Pham1

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.72, No.1, pp. 2055-2075, 2022, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2022.025532

    Abstract In international trade, exporters prefer to receive payments as quickly as possible, and importers want to make payments as late as possible. In this respect, the payment field, an essential condition for trade transactions, also represents the positions of exporters and importers conflict. In addition, there are many cases in which various variables must be considered rather than only one specific variable representatively affecting payment, particularly in the case of import-export Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises (SMEs) from emerging countries. A selection of proper payment methods can be categorized as a Multi-Criteria Decision-Making (MCDM) issue. Therefore,… More >

    Regulation Relatedness Map Creation Method with Latent Semantic Analysis

    Mehmet Murat Huyut1,*, Batuhan Kocaoğlu2, Ünzile Meram3

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.72, No.1, pp. 2093-2107, 2022, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2022.024190

    Abstract Regulatory authorities create a lot of legislation that must be followed. These create complex compliance requirements and time-consuming processes to find regulatory non-compliance. While the regulations establish rules in the relevant areas, recommendations and best practices for compliance are not generally mentioned. Best practices are often used to find a solution to this problem. There are numerous governance, management, and security frameworks in Information Technology (IT) area to guide businesses to run their processes at a much more mature level. Best practice maps can used to map another best practice, and users can adapt themselves… More >

    Chia-Nan Wang1, Chien-Chang Chou2,*, Hsien-Pin Hsu3, Van Thanh Nguyen4, Viet Tinh Nguyen4

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.70, No.1, pp. 397-412, 2022, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2022.019470

    Abstract The two main approaches that countries are using to ease the strain on healthcare infrastructure is building temporary hospitals that are specialized in treating COVID-19 patients and promoting preventive measures. As such, the selection of the optimal location for a temporary hospital and the calculation of the prioritization of preventive measures are two of the most critical decisions during the pandemic, especially in densely populated areas where the risk of transmission of the virus is highest. If the location selection process or the prioritization of measures is poor, healthcare workers and patients can be harmed,… More >
