    System Dynamics Forecasting on Taiwan Power Supply Chain

    Zhiqiu Yu1,*, Shuo-Yan Chou1, Phan Nguyen Ky Phuc2, Tiffany Hui-Kuang Yu3

    Computer Systems Science and Engineering, Vol.41, No.3, pp. 1191-1205, 2022, DOI:10.32604/csse.2022.021239

    Abstract This research aims to study the sustainability of Taiwan power supply chain based on system dynamics forecasting. The paper tries to investigate electricity shortage effects not only on the industrial side, but also from the standpoint of society. In our model, different forecasting methods such as linear regression, time series analysis, and gray forecasting are also considered to predict the parameters. Further tests such as the structure, dimension, historical fit, and sensitivity of the model are also conducted in this paper. Through analysis forecasting result, we believe that the demand for electricity in Taiwan will continue to increase to a… More >

    Fusion-Based Supply Chain Collaboration Using Machine Learning Techniques

    Naeem Ali1, Taher M. Ghazal2,3, Alia Ahmed1, Sagheer Abbas4, M. A. Khan5, Haitham M. Alzoubi6, Umar Farooq7, Munir Ahmad4, Muhammad Adnan Khan8,*

    Intelligent Automation & Soft Computing, Vol.31, No.3, pp. 1671-1687, 2022, DOI:10.32604/iasc.2022.019892

    Abstract Supply Chain Collaboration is the network of various entities that work cohesively to make up the entire process. The supply chain organizations’ success is dependent on integration, teamwork, and the communication of information. Every day, supply chain and business players work in a dynamic setting. They must balance competing goals such as process robustness, risk reduction, vulnerability reduction, real financial risks, and resilience against just-in-time and cost-efficiency. Decision-making based on shared information in Supply Chain Collaboration constitutes the recital and competitiveness of the collective process. Supply Chain Collaboration has prompted companies to implement the perfect data analytics functions (e.g., data… More >

    A Fuzzy MCDM Model of Supplier Selection in Supply Chain Management

    Jui-Chung Kao1, Chia-Nan Wang2,*, Viet Tinh Nguyen3 and Syed Tam Husain3

    Intelligent Automation & Soft Computing, Vol.31, No.3, pp. 1451-1466, 2022, DOI:10.32604/iasc.2022.021778

    Abstract According to a new study by the International Labor Organization (ILO), the COVID-19 pandemic has had a strong impact on the garment industry in the Asia-Pacific region. A sharp drop in retail sales in key export markets has affected workers and businesses across supply chains. To ensure the effectiveness and efficiency of garment supply chain, choosing a sustainable supplier should be a main concern of all businesses. The supplier selection problem in garment industry involves multiple quantitative and qualitative criteria. There have been many research and literatures about the development and application of Multicriteria Decision Making (MCDM) models in solving… More >
