  • An integrated highly synchronous, high resolution, real time eye tracking
           system for dynamic flight movement
    • Abstract: Publication date: August 2019Source: Advanced Engineering Informatics, Volume 41Author(s): Hong Jie Wee, Sun Woh Lye, Jean-Philippe Pinheiro Electronic surveillance systems are being used rapidly today, ranging from a simple video camera to a complex biometric surveillance system for facial patterns and intelligent computer vision based surveillance systems, which are applied in many fields such as home monitoring, security surveillance of important places and mission critical tasks like air traffic control surveillance. Such systems normally involve a computer system and a human surveillance operator, who looks at the dynamic display to perform his surveillance tasks. Exploitation of shared information between these physical heterogeneous data capture systems with human operated functions is one emerging aspect in electronic surveillance that has yet to be addressed deeply. Hence, an innovative interaction interface for such knowledge extraction and representation is required. Such an interface should establish a data activity register frame which captures information depicting various surveillance activities at a specified spatial and time reference.This paper presents a real time eye tracking system, which integrates two sets of activity data in a highly dynamic changing and synchronous manner in real-time with respect to both spatial and time frames, through the “Dynamic Data Alignment and Timestamp Synchronisation Model”. This model matches the timestamps of the two data streams, aligns them to the same spatial reference frame before fusing them together into a data activity register frame. The Air Traffic Control (ATC) domain is used to illustrate this model, where experiments are conducted under simulated radar traffic situations with participants and their radar input data. Test results revealed that this model is able to synchronise the timestamp of the eye and dynamic display data, align both of these data spatially, while taking into account dynamic changes in space and time on a simulated radar display. This system can also distinguish and show variations in the monitoring behaviour of participants. As such, new knowledge can be extracted and represented through this innovative interface, which can then be applied to other applications in the field of electronic surveillance to unearth monitoring behaviour of the human surveillance operator.
       
  • Inferring workplace safety hazards from the spatial patterns of
           workers’ wearable data
    • Abstract: Publication date: August 2019Source: Advanced Engineering Informatics, Volume 41Author(s): Kanghyeok Yang, Changbum R. Ahn Hazard identification in construction typically requires safety managers to manually inspect an area. However, current approach is very limited due to the dynamic nature of construction sites and the subjective nature of human perception. Using wearable inertial measurement units (WIMU), previous literatures revealed the relationship between a worker’s abnormal gait patterns and the existence of slip, trip and fall (STF) hazards. Though the prior work demonstrated the strong correlation between STF hazards and abnormal gait patterns, automated hazard identification is a challenging issue due to the lack of knowledge on decision threshold on identifying hazards under different construction environments. To fill the research gap, this study developed an approach that can automatically identify the STF hazards without knowledge about thresholds by investigating the spatial associations of workers’ abnormal gait occurrences. An experiment simulating a brick installation was performed with different types of STF hazards (e.g., poor housekeeping), and results demonstrate the feasibility of STF hazards identification with the developed approach. The results highlight the opportunities of revealing potential accident hotspots via an efficient and semi-automated methodology, which overcomes many of the limitations in current practice.

  • Xgboost application on bridge management systems for proactive damage
           estimation
    • Abstract: Publication date: August 2019Source: Advanced Engineering Informatics, Volume 41Author(s): Soram Lim, Seokho Chi Bridge inspection is one of the most fundamental tasks in bridge management practices. Because of limited professional manpower and budget constraints, providing prior information about possible damage can reduce inspection errors and time. The purpose of this study was to estimate the condition of bridges at a damage level, considering various influencing factors for seven different damage types by six different main structure types, using data from the Korean Bridge Management System. The extreme gradient boosting (XGBoost) method was used because it has the advantage of not assuming determinacy and independence, and it clearly can handle the numerous variables that affect damage to bridges. As a result, out of the 38 decision trees that were generated, 36 trees were derived with significant performance measures. The influence of the variables was calculated by the Shapley Additive Explanation (SHAP) value. Age, average daily truck traffic, vehicle weight limit, total length, and effective width were found to be the major factors that influenced damage to bridges. This study confirmed that more detailed structural factors were significant contributors to severe damage to complex structural designs and the use of multiple kinds of materials, such as the cross-sectional properties of girders for the concrete deck of bridges with steel girders compared to the properties of the decks for bridges made of a simple slab of reinforced concrete. The research findings emphasized the benefits of artificial intelligence in the analysis of the conditions of bridges and showed its potential for use in network-level decision making for preventive maintenance.
       
  • A directed failure causality network (DFCN) based method for function
           components risk prioritization under interval type-2 fuzzy environment
    • Abstract: Publication date: August 2019Source: Advanced Engineering Informatics, Volume 41Author(s): Hongzhan Ma, Xuening Chu, Weizhong Wang, Xinwang Liu, Deyi Xue Failure risk prioritization of function components plays a key role in the process to redesign a mechanical product. However, the failure causality relationships (FCRs) among failure modes of components are often ignored in the existing design risk assessment methods, leading to inaccurate risk prioritization results. A failure mode in one component can be the cause of a failure mode in another component, and a failure mode with low chance of failure may result in another failure mode with high chance of failure through propagation among failure modes. Thus, the ultimate effects of each failure mode should be determined by considering the effects of failure propagations. In this research, a directed failure causality network (DFCN) model considering FCRs is proposed to describe the FCRs and to predict risks of the designed product. In addition, uncertainties of linguistic terms in evaluation are also considered in the developed model, because linguistic terms are more suitable and natural than quantitative numbers for design engineers to assess design risks based on their knowledge. To describe these uncertainties, interval type-2 fuzzy set is employed to model the designers’ subjective linguistic terms for determining the weights of edges and weights of vertices in the DFCN. A case study for failure risk prioritization of components in redesign of a large tonnage crawler crane (LTCC) is implemented to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed method.
       
  • A novel approach for sand liquefaction prediction via local mean-based
           pseudo nearest neighbor algorithm and its engineering application
    • Abstract: Publication date: August 2019Source: Advanced Engineering Informatics, Volume 41Author(s): Shuai Huang, Mingming Huang, Yuejun Lyu The prediction method plays crucial roles in accurate prediction of sand liquefaction. Recently, machine learning has been widely used for prediction of sand liquefaction, and the Local Mean-based Pseudo Nearest Neighbor (LMPNN) algorithm, one of machine learning techniques, showed good performance in pattern recognition. In this study, we propose a sand liquefaction prediction model based on the LMPNN algorithm, which is the first work of applying the LMPNN algorithm to sand liquefaction prediction. Then, our proposed prediction model is used for evaluation of site liquefaction grade in Tongzhou District of China. And the comparison between our proposed prediction model with the liquefaction evaluation method in the Chinese code is made, which will provide an important approach to predicting the sand liquefaction grades for the major construction project sites. Extensive experiments on grade prediction demonstrate that the effectiveness of our proposed prediction model based on the LMPNN algorithm. In addition, shaking table test of an engineering site model is conducted for evaluating whether this engineering site model is liquefaction and non-liquefaction or not. And the experiment result of the shaking table test is the same as that of our proposed prediction model based on LMPNN algorithm, which further demonstrates the effectiveness of our proposed prediction model. Consequently, our proposed prediction model is proved to have a good prospect of engineering application in the liquefaction prediction.
       
  • Automated classification of building information modeling (BIM) case
           studies by BIM use based on natural language processing (NLP) and
           unsupervised learning
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 30 April 2019Source: Advanced Engineering InformaticsAuthor(s): Namcheol Jung, Ghang Lee This paper comparatively analyzes a method to automatically classify case studies of building information modeling (BIM) in construction projects by BIM use. It generally takes a minimum of thirty minutes to hours of collection and review and an average of four information sources to identify a project that has used BIM in a manner that is of interest. To automate and expedite the analysis tasks, this study deployed natural language processing (NLP) and commonly used unsupervised learning for text classification, namely latent semantic analysis (LSA) and latent Dirichlet allocation (LDA). The results were validated against one of representative supervised learning methods for text classification—support vector machine (SVM). When LSA and LDA detected phrases in a BIM case study that had higher similarity values to the definition of each BIM use than the threshold values, the system determined that the project had deployed BIM in the detected approach. For the classification of BIM use, the BIM uses specified by Pennsylvania State University were utilized. The approach was validated using 240 BIM case studies (512,892 features). When BIM uses were employed in a project, the project was labeled as “1”; when they were not, the project was labeled as “0.” The performance was analyzed by changing parameters: namely, document segmentation, feature weighting, dimensionality reduction coefficient (k-value), the number of topics, and the number of iterations. LDA yielded the highest F1 score, 80.75% on average. LDA and LSA yielded high recall and low precision in most cases. Conversely, SVM yielded high precision and low recall in most cases and fluctuations in F1 scores.

  • A structural service innovation approach for designing smart product
           service systems: Case study of smart beauty service
    • Abstract: Publication date: April 2019Source: Advanced Engineering Informatics, Volume 40Author(s): Ching-Hung Lee, Chun-Hsien Chen, Amy J.C. Trappey Smart Product-service systems (PSS) are the emerging type of PSS that offer market value and dynamic intelligence combining products and services as solutions to consumers based on digital technology. To design a smart PSS with an effective way, a structural design approach is required. Nevertheless, only a few existing researchers discussed this topic. Aiming to bridge this gap, an integrated way is proposed for smart PSS design. This study refines a generic approach for structural service innovation approach which integrates the advantage of PSS engineering and service engineering for designing smart product service systems. The structural design approach is based on the Theory of Inventive Problem Solving (TRIZ) incorporating with service blueprint named PRR method. Three design phases are demonstrated as verification of the PRR method by an elaborated case study of the smart beauty service. Based on PRR, three key design phases are integrated, i.e., (1) problem definition, (2) resolution generation, and (3) resolution design. Empirical results and implications are collected and discussed to obtain valuable insights for value creation.
       
  • A meta-model approach for formal specification and consistent management
           of multi-LOD building models
    • Abstract: Publication date: April 2019Source: Advanced Engineering Informatics, Volume 40Author(s): Jimmy Abualdenien, André Borrmann The design of a building is a collaborative process among experts from multiple disciplines. Using Building Information Modeling (BIM), a model is developed through multiple refinement stages to satisfy various design and engineering requirements. Such refinements of geometric and semantic information are described as levels of development (LOD). Thus far, there is no method to explicitly define an LOD’s requirements nor to precisely specify the uncertainties involved. Furthermore, despite the insufficient information in the early design stages, a BIM model appears precise and certain, which can lead to false assumptions and model evaluations, for example, in the case of energy efficiency calculations or structural analyses. Hence, this paper presents a multi-LOD meta-model to explicitly describe an LOD’s requirements, incorporating the potential fuzziness of both, geometric and semantic information of individual elements. The explicitly defined fuzziness can be taken into account when applying simulations or analyses for assessing the performance of different building design variants. To support the continuous elaboration of a building from the conceptual to the detailed design stages, the multi-LOD model makes it possible to ensure the consistency of the geometric and semantic information as well as the topological coherence across the different LODs. The feasibility of the approach is demonstrated by its prototypical implementation as a web-server and user-interface, providing a means for managing and checking the exchange requirements both at the meta-level and for concrete building model instances. The paper is concluded with a case study of a real-world construction project that demonstrates the use of the meta-model to support model analysis and the decision-making process.
       
  • A Relative Entropy Weibull-SAX framework for health indices construction
           and health stage division in degradation modeling of multivariate time
           series asset data
    • Abstract: Publication date: April 2019Source: Advanced Engineering Informatics, Volume 40Author(s): Oluseun Omotola Aremu, David Hyland-Wood, Peter Ross McAree Predictive maintenance is the monitoring of an asset’s condition over its life cycle to provide a prognosis for when maintenance is required. Prior to prognosis, an asset’s life cycle is modeled by a health indicator (HI) which is derived from sensor measurements and describes an asset’s degradation over a life cycle. Often an asset’s HI is accompanied by a health stage (HS) division, which describes the asset’s life cycle condition in discrete states. Generally, HSs are discrete representations generated from discrete state transition models, dynamic state space models, or subjectively defined thresholds, which use sensor measurements to provide a HS division related to an asset’s life cycle degradation. HS division methods are often designed for a specific asset in which HS division is based on user assumptions and not generalizable to different asset types or asset data representations. Also, HS division methods are often limited to a bi-state HS division (normal and failure), in which unobservable states are often generalized transition states. As assets become more complex and require multivariate measurements, more advanced methods are required to model an asset’s degradation using HIs and HSs. This work introduces Relative Entropy Weibull-SAX (REWS), a data-driven HI and HS degradation modeling method for multivariate asset data. REWS constructs a HI using relative entropy to represent an asset’s condition as a change of entropy during its life cycle. The relative entropy representation is then discretized into HS divisions using a Weibull distribution based Symbolic Aggregate approXimation. REWS’s utility is demonstrated on the Commercial Modular Aero-Propulsion System Simulation dataset which describes the life cycle observations of multiple aircraft engines.
       
  • Image processing based automatic recognition of asphalt pavement patch
           using a metaheuristic optimized machine learning approach
    • Abstract: Publication date: April 2019Source: Advanced Engineering Informatics, Volume 40Author(s): Nhat-Duc Hoang Patch detection is an important task in pavement condition survey. This study establishes an automatic approach for asphalt pavement patch recognition based on image texture analysis and hybrid machine learning algorithms. Features based on image texture that employs statistical properties of color channels and the gray-scale co-occurrence matrix are used by the Least Squares Support Vector Machine (LSSVM) for discriminating patched areas from non-patch ones. In addition, to optimize the LSSVM training phase, the Differential Flower Pollination (DFP) metaheuristic is used. A data set constructed from a set of 1000 image samples has been utilized to train and verify the proposed integration of image texture analysis techniques, LSSVM, and DFP. Experimental results show that the new model can achieve a good prediction result with Classification Accuracy Rate = 95.30%, Positive Predictive Value = 0.96, and the Negative Predictive Value = 0.95. Additionally, a patch detection program has been developed and compiled in Visual C# .NET to ease the implementation of the hybrid model. Thus, the newly developed method can be a potential tool for traffic management agencies during the phase of pavement condition evaluation.Graphical abstractGraphical abstract for this article
       
  • Multi-objective optimization design of a complex building based on an
           artificial neural network and performance evaluation of algorithms
    • Abstract: Publication date: April 2019Source: Advanced Engineering Informatics, Volume 40Author(s): Binghui Si, Jianguo Wang, Xinyue Yao, Xing Shi, Xing Jin, Xin Zhou While optimization studies focusing on real-world buildings are somewhat limited, many building optimization studies to date have used simple hypothetical buildings for the following three reasons: (1) the shape and form of real buildings are complex and difficult to mathematically describe; (2) computer models built based on real buildings are computationally expensive, which makes the optimization process time-consuming and impractical and (3) although algorithm performance is crucial for achieving effective building performance optimization (BPO), there is a lack of agreement regarding the proper selection of optimization algorithms and algorithm control parameters. This study applied BPO to the design of a newly built complex building. A number of design variables, including the shape of the building’s eaves, were optimized to improve building energy efficiency and indoor thermal comfort. Instead of using a detailed simulation model, a surrogate model developed by an artificial neural network (ANN) was used to reduce the computing time. In this study, the performance of four multi-objective algorithms was evaluated by using the proposed performance evaluation criteria to select the best algorithm and parameter values for population size and number of generations. The performance evaluation results of the algorithms implied that NSGA-II (with a population size and number of generations of 40 and 45, respectively) performed the best in the case study. The final optimal solution significantly improves building performance, demonstrating the success of the BPO technique in solving complex building design problems. In addition, the findings on the performance evaluation of the algorithms provide guidance for users regarding the selection of suitable algorithms and parameter settings based on the most important performance criteria.
       
  • Maximum variation analysis based analytical target cascading for
           multidisciplinary robust design optimization under interval uncertainty
    • Abstract: Publication date: April 2019Source: Advanced Engineering Informatics, Volume 40Author(s): Wei Li, Mi Xiao, Yongsheng Yi, Liang Gao Analytical target cascading (ATC) is a generally used hierarchical method for deterministic multidisciplinary design optimization (MDO). However, uncertainty is almost inevitable in the lifecycle of a complex system. In engineering practical design, the interval information of uncertainty can be more easily obtained compared to probability information. In this paper, a maximum variation analysis based ATC (MVA-ATC) approach is developed. In this approach, all subsystems are autonomously optimized under the interval uncertainty. MVA is used to establish an outer-inner framework which is employed to find the optimal scheme of system and subsystems. All subsystems are coordinated at the system level to search the system robust optimal solution. The accuracy and validation of the presented approach are tested using a classical mathematical example, a heart dipole optimization problem, and a battery thermal management system (BTMS) design problem.
       
  • Cross-border e-commerce commodity risk assessment using text mining and
           fuzzy rule-based reasoning
    • Abstract: Publication date: April 2019Source: Advanced Engineering Informatics, Volume 40Author(s): Bo Song, Wei Yan, Tianjiao Zhang The potentially conflicting regulations of different countries can cause significant risk for cross-border e-commerce (CBEC), since the multi-varieties, small-batch transaction mode of CBEC prohibit the customs from carrying out comprehensive inspection on commodity quality. In this paper, a risk assessment method utilizing text mining and fuzzy rule-based reasoning is proposed, which is able to assess CBEC commodity risk quantitatively and semi-automatically. To do this, first the commodity safety regulations are transformed into risk rules considering a fuzzy representation of risk consequence. Then the features of CBEC commodities are extracted from webpages and the commodities are classified to be assessed with corresponding risk factors. For the inherent risk factors representing violations of safety regulations, the risk consequence is inferred using fuzzy rules. For the historical risk factors representing how often a kind of commodities have violated safety regulations, the risk probability and consequence are assessed by analyzing the import inspection record. At last, the overall risk of a CBEC commodity is obtained by aggregating the output of related risk factor. Experimental results show that the proposed method enhances CBEC commodity risk assessment by improving its efficiency and accuracy.

Secondly, a multiple-objective mixed integer programming model is formulated which fully considering the minimum transportation cost, minimum template disturbance and maximum space utilization. Moreover, a case study is conducted to intuitively illustrate the regeneration problem of yard template. Finally, performance analysis and sensitivity analysis are performed to validate the effectiveness of the model.
       
  • Convolutional neural network: Deep learning-based classification of
           building quality problems
    • Abstract: Publication date: April 2019Source: Advanced Engineering Informatics, Volume 40Author(s): Botao Zhong, Xuejiao Xing, Peter Love, Xu Wang, Hanbin Luo The rapid development of the construction industry in China has introduced unprecedented quality-related problems in the country’s building industry. In response to this issue, the government has established various complaint channels to report quality problems. Therefore, building quality complaints (BQCs) need to be classified and solved by respective agencies or departments rapidly for avoiding adverse impact on the safety, health, and well-being of people. However, the current process of classifying BQCs is labor intensive, time consuming, and error prone. An automatic complaint classification is required to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of complaint handling, but studies on this issue are limited. Prevailing text classification research in construction has focused on utilizing conventional shallow machine learning. By contrast, this study explores a novel convolutional neural network (CNN)-based approach that incorporates a deep-learning method to automatically classify the short texts contained within BQCs. The presented approach enables capturing the semantic features in BQC texts and automatic classification of the BQCs into predefined categories. After the model optimization, tests are conducted to examine the practical application of the text classification approach compared with Bayes-based and support vector machine classifiers. Results indicate that the developed CNN-based approach performs well in the Chinese BQC classification with limited manual intervention and few complicated feature engineering.

  • Data-driven operational risk analysis in E-Commerce Logistics
    • Abstract: Publication date: April 2019Source: Advanced Engineering Informatics, Volume 40Author(s): Gangyan Xu, Xuan Qiu, Meng Fang, Xiaofei Kou, Ying Yu The efficiency of E-Commerce Logistics (ECL) has become a major success factor for e-commerce companies in the competitive marketplace nowadays. However, the operation of ECL is complex and vulnerable to many risks, which would severely threaten its performance. A clear understanding of these risks would benefit a lot for conducting targeted measures to effectively mitigate their adverse effects. Therefore, this paper proposes a quantitatively analysis approach for operational risks in ECL based on extensive historical e-commerce transaction data. More specifically, the typical operation process of ECL is extracted through sequential analysis of key activities. After that, taking operation time as the key performance indicator, the performance patterns of different operation phases are analyzed. Then, considering the diverse distributions of operation time in different phases, especially the multimodal distribution of transportation time, a Gaussian Mixture Model (GMM) based risk analysis approach is proposed. Finally, an experimental case study is provided to measure the operational risks using real-life ECL data, and several managerial implications are also discussed based on the results.
       
  • Automated BIM data validation integrating open-standard schema with visual
           programming language
    • Abstract: Publication date: April 2019Source: Advanced Engineering Informatics, Volume 40Author(s): Pedram Ghannad, Yong-Cheol Lee, Johannes Dimyadi, Wawan Solihin A building design must comply with a wide spectrum of requirements stipulated by building codes, normative standards, owner’s specifications, industry’s guidelines, and project requirements. The current rule-based compliance checking practice is a costly bottleneck in a building project, and thus, there is a demand for a design evaluation process that incorporates automated checking capabilities to address the inefficiency and the error-prone nature of the current manual checking practice. The inherent complexity of building design rules and impracticability of existing automated checking approaches are two key challenges that must be addressed to enable practical compliance checking automation. This research study proposes a new modularized framework that integrates the emerging open standard, LegalRuleML, with a Visual Programming Language. The framework allows a standardized method of defining design rules in a machine-readable and executable format. The proposed approach encompasses the entire compliance checking process from the interpretation of natural language-based requirements to machine-readable rules, rule categorization, rule parameterization, and the execution of the rules on the ISO-standard building information model. This modularized BIM-based design validation framework is expected to help automatically and iteratively evaluate the level of quality and defects of information conveyed in a given building model as an essential part of the early design process.
       
  • Empty container repositioning strategy in intermodal transport with demand
           switching
    • Abstract: Publication date: April 2019Source: Advanced Engineering Informatics, Volume 40Author(s): Tian Luo, Daofang Chang In this paper, we study the empty container inventory repositioning problem with customer demand switching in intermodal transport. The objective of this article is to solve the empty container repositioning problem by contract coordination theory, and to improve the coordination of empty container management and the profit of each participant. We consider an intermodal transport system composed of the rail firm and the liner firm. First, we have considered the situation of no cooperation between the dry port and the seaport, and established a model where there is only the customer demand switching without the occurrence of empty container repositioning. Next, we consider the cooperation between the dry port and the seaport in the decentralized model and the centralized model, and set up the empty container repositioning models from the seaport to the dry port respectively. We analyse the optimal inventory level for the dry port and the seaport under different models, and the effect of the repositioning price on the optimal inventory level. We then apply the contract coordination theory to the empty container inventory repositioning problem. We propose an inventory coordination strategy based on a revenue sharing contract and coordinate the intermodal transport system by choosing the appropriate contract parameters. The results of the study show that under the guidance of the seaport, the revenue sharing contract can achieve a win-win situation for the dry port and the seaport.
