  • Fuzzy Goal Programming Problem Based on Minmax Approach for Optimal System

    • Authors: Nurullah Umarusman
      Abstract: Every system in nature evolved in order to carry on their existence and reach their targets with minimal losses. The fundamental condition of a system’s success lies on making the correct decision by evaluating multiple, complicated, and conflicting goals based on the present constraints. Many mathematical programming problems are make up of objective functions combined by the decision maker based on the constrains. This study investigates how an optimal design can be reached based on Minmax approach. Goal Programming and a Fuzzy Goal Programming known as MA approach are used in this study. The solution of a problem organized as a Multiple De novo programming in order to determine the resource amounts for a business in handcrafts is carried out based on these two approaches. Budget constrain is organized as a goal to solve the problem based on MA approach, and a solution is proposed accordingly. The acquired results suggest that the solution results of Minmax Goal Programming and MA approach are the same.

  • The Econometric Analysis of the Relationship Between Perceived Corruption,
           Foreign Trade and Foreign Direct Investment in the Context of
           International Indices

    • Authors: Büşra Gezikol; Hakan Tunahan
      Abstract: The aim of this study is to reveal the transformation of corruption into an economic problem in the historical process and the effects of international economic relations (foreign trade and foreign direct investment) on corruption. In accordance with this purpose, the relationship between perceived corruption, measured by ICRG and CPI indices, and foreign trade and foreign direct investment is evaluated through panel data analysis. Within the scope of analysis, the countries are evaluated in four basic categories according to 2017 income classification of the World Bank. The model established for the ICRG index is found significant in low-income countries. In these countries, increase in exports causes increase the corruption. In low-middle income countries increase in imports reduces the corruption while increase in exports causes increasing the corruption in high-middle income countries. In order to assess the impact of the customs duties ICRG and CPI models for the 60 countries that aren’t categorized in 2003-2015 periods have significant results. In both models, it is seen that increase in exports decreases the corruption while increase in customs duties rates increase the corruption.

           Kano Model

    • Authors: Selçuk Çebi; Esra İlbahar
      Abstract: Mobile phones have been popular by providing with access to the internet based on evolving technology. On the global market, various companies offer different mobile phone designs with various product features. However, the significance of these features with regards to customer expectations and perception is uncertain. For this, within the scope of this study, it is aimed to classify mobile phone design features in the direction of user perception and expectation. This will allow manufacturers to develop customer expectation and perception oriented designs. In the scope of the study, the telephone design parameters were classified by using fuzzy Kano Model and the obtained classification was compared with results obtained from classic Kano Model. Kano Model surveys have been prepared to define the importance of user-oriented features in the mobile phone designs that have been recently introduced to the market and these surveys have been applied to 118 participants between 18-35 years old.

  • Sustainable and Renewable Energy Power Plants Evaluation by Fuzzy TODIM

    • Authors: A. Çağrı Tolga; Zeynep K. Turgut
      Abstract: Sustainable and renewable energy systems are an effective solution to depletion of fossil energy resources and prevent serious environmental problems resulted from energy production. Turkey has rich renewable energy potential due to its geographical features. In this regard, the government puts emphasis on increasing renewable energy utilization rate in meeting energy demand of the country. Therefore encouragement policies are implemented in this field and energy investors are supported economically. In his study, we aimed to find out the best performing sustainable and renewable energy alternative and thus to guide decision makers on energy investments. Therefore we evaluated four energy power plant types, which are solar, wind, hydroelectric and landfilled gas (LFG). For the evaluation of the alternatives, there are many factors to consider and multicriteria decision making (MCDM) methods are an appropriate approach for this issue. In this regard, we determined 22 evaluation criteria in technical, economical and environmental aspect and applied TODIM technique. It is based on prospect theory and the most significant difference from the other MCDM methods is to deal with risk in decision-making. In order to cope with vagueness and uncertainty in this evaluation process, we integrated fuzzy sets into the system. Finally we evaluated the results obtained and presented a sensitivity analysis at the end.

  • Using an Integrated Grey AHP–MOORA Approach for Personnel Selection: An
           Application on Manager Selection in the Health Industry

    • Authors: Yakup Çelikbilek
      Abstract: Right personnel selection is always an important problem for companies. Especially today, with globalizing world, developing technologies and increasing specialization, human resources management personnel can become inadequate about the right personnel selection. Especially in the areas of business, where human life is concerned, right personnel selection decision become more important and critical. One of the other important problems encountered during personnel selection process is the presence of decisions with subjective judgements. It is taken attention that MOORA method has the success of making the right decision when the studies in the literature is observed. Because of this, in this study, An integrated grey AHP–MOORA approach is presented for personnel selection. The reason of selection of grey numbers is its success of representing subjective judgements and including the bias caused by personal judgements by minimizing it during the selection process. Firstly, through this perspective, after the introduction section, a literature review evaluating the studies on personnel selection is allocated. In Section 3, operation with grey numbers are explained. In Section 4, grey AHP method and In Section 5, grey MOORA method are explained in detail. In Section 6, proposed integrated grey AHP–MOORA approach is given with step by step explanation. In Section 7, an application on manager selection in health industry is carried out as a real life problem and its results are validated by comparing with different methods.

  • Risk-Based DEA Efficiency and SSD Efficiency of OECD Members Stock Indices

    • Authors: Neslihan Fidan Keçeci; Yonca Erdem Demirtaş
      Abstract: A stock market index gives some illustrative information regarding the financial market. In this study, we are interested in stock indices efficiency of OECD member countries. We use Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) methodology and Second Order Stochastic Dominance (SSD) Criteria as an efficiency metrics. DEA is a linear programming based technique for measuring the relative efficiency of homogenous decision making units by their input-output rates. In the Risk-Based DEA, traditional and modern risk measures are used as inputs of the model and the mean return as an output. We consider Conditional Value at Risk (CVaR) as a modern risk measure of financial asset returns. Another approach for the efficiency is Stochastic Dominance (SD) rule that takes into account the entire distribution of return, rather than the return distribution characteristics. There are several papers show that SSD constraints related to the CVaR constraints in an optimization model. Therefore, we compare Risk-Based DEA results with optimization problem with SSD constraints in the empirical study. We also test SSD efficiency of stock index pairs. The results are valuable for the asset managers who need to evaluate the performance of a stock index among others.

  • An Ant Colony Optimization Algorithm Approach for Solving Multi-objective
           Capacitated Vehicle Routing Problem

    • Authors: Osman Pala; Mehmet Aksaraylı
      Abstract: In the transportation and logistics sector, the problem of vehicle routing is an important issue that needs to be addressed in many ways. The aim of the work is to minimize the total tour time and the average length of time that a passenger travels on by a service company that is carrying passengers between the hotel and the airport with their service vehicles. Due to the limitations of passenger transport in vehicles, the problem is dealt with as a Multi-objective Capacitated Vehicle Routing problem. An Ant Colony Optimization Algorithm which is a heuristic method is proposed for solving the problem. According to the results of the solution, it is observed that the proposed model provides significant improvements in terms of both parameters in terms of the duration of the tours and the duration of the average transportation time of the customers.
