    • Abstract: Managing Software Project Risks (Planning Phase) with Proposed Fuzzy Regression Analysis Techniques with Fuzzy Concepts
      Pages 31-40
      Author abdelrafe elzamlyBurairah Hussi
      Regardless how much effort we put for the success of software projects, many software projects have a very high failure rate. Tthe failure risk is not always avoidable, but it could be controllable through software development phases. The aim of this paper is to present the fuzzy regression analysis modelling techniques to mitigate the risks in a software development project in planning phase. Top ten software risk factors in the planning phase and the best thirty risk management techniques were presented to respondents. All selected risks in software projects (planning phase) were siginificance in software project manager's perspective, whereas all risk management techniques are used most of the time, and often. The study has been conducted on a group of software project managers in software development companies. Fuzzy multiple regression analysis techniques had shown that are effective in mitigating the occurrence of each software risk factor. Successful software project risk management will greatly improve the probability of project success.

  • The Reseach of the Vehicle Tracking and Illegal Trajectory Discriminant
           Based on Video

    • Abstract: The Reseach of the Vehicle Tracking and Illegal Trajectory Discriminant Based on Video
      Pages 41-44
      Author Jun GuZhenghua ZhangMin Xi
      The single Meanshift tracing with RGB model always loses its target under complex condition. The Meanshift and the prediction of kalman combined in tracking moving targets could improve it. According to the initial location, Meanshift and the prediction of kalman are combined to confirm the new location being the starting point of next tracking, then the trajectories of vehicles are shown. The trajectory of vehicle can distinguish whether the vehicles break rules and regulations. Experimental results show that improved tracking algorithm under complex condition has a certain degree of improvement, and the trajectory tracking has a smooth effect, which doesn’t take too much time, and still meets the requirement of real-time. Extraction of vehicle trajectory provides the basis of illegal discrimination. The lanes and the light determine whether the vehicle has run a red light or illegal turn. The detection method can accurately discriminate illegal vehicles to make video surveillance more intelligent.

  • Monitoring Exposure to Traffic Noise with Mobile Phones in China: A Review
           of Context

    • Abstract: Monitoring Exposure to Traffic Noise with Mobile Phones in China: A Review of Context
      Pages 52-63
      Author S. LeaoW. Zho
      There is sufficient scientific evidence that noise exposure can cause serious health problems, including hypertension and heart disease. 2Loud? is a mobile phone application developed and tested as a technology to accurately monitor, assess and map the level of exposure to traffic noise of citizens. This paper aims to set the basis for the test of 2Loud? in China, through a context review, as part of a collaborative research between Deakin University and the Chinese Academy of Science (RCEES). Australia and China share similarities and have differences in relation to patterns of urbanisation and technologies’ use, and cultural and political backgrounds. These can provide a fertile environment for the investigation of opportunities and barriers to develop environmental community sensing processes related to noise in urban areas, which can make an impact on the quality of life of the population.

  • A Review of TQM and IT Research in the ICT Industry: An Agenda for Future

    • Abstract: A Review of TQM and IT Research in the ICT Industry: An Agenda for Future
      Pages 64-84
      Author Suby KhanamFaisal TalibJamshed Siddiqu
      Over the past two decades, total quality management (TQM) and information technology (IT) have become the essential components of the information communication and technology (ICT) industry. TQM is an integrated approach that continuously improves the quality of performance while IT act as technical knowledge that supports quality experts and both are frequently used to fulfill customer requirements. There is a lack of sound literature review on TQM and IT together in the ICT industry. A comprehensive study of the published TQM and IT literature is undertaken to fill this gap that will also guide the future researchers in the area. The methodology adopted in this paper is the classification of literature review based on study type, nature of study, type of industry and country where study is conducted. A total of 153 TQM/IT related research papers were identified from different sources and 89 articles were finally filtered out for conducting the present study. The paper reflects the extent of work undertaken in the area as well as tries to re-structure and organize the available knowledge on TQM and IT in ICT industry. Major conclusions and suggestions for future research are presented at the end.

  • Effective Load Balancing for Wireless Sensor Networks with Multiple Mobile

    • Abstract: Effective Load Balancing for Wireless Sensor Networks with Multiple Mobile Sinks
      Pages 45-51
      Author Keiichi EndoShingo YanoDai Okan
      In this paper, we propose a method that extends the lifetime of wireless sensor networks by using multiple mobile sink nodes. The proposed method determines the positions of multiple sink nodes based on remaining battery levels of sensor nodes. When a sink node is moved, the new position of the sink node is determined considering the distance to other sink nodes and the distance to the sensor node with the lowest remaining battery level. The proposed method also considers remaining battery levels in constructing routing tables. We conduct a comparative evaluation of the existing and proposed methods via simulation to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed method.

  • Decision-making Software Architecture; the Visualization and Data Mining
           Assisted Approach

    • Abstract: Decision-making Software Architecture; the Visualization and Data Mining Assisted Approach
      Pages 12-26
      Author A. Mosav
      Multiple Criteria Decision Making (MCDM) is considered as a combined task of optimization and decision-making. Yet in solving real-life MCDM problems often most attention is paid to finding the complete Pareto-optimal set of the associated multiobjective optimization (MOO) problem and less to decision-making. In this paper, along with the presentation of two case studies, an interactive procedure has been suggested which involves the decision-maker (DM) in the optimization process helping to choose a single solution at the end. Our proposed method on the basis of reactive search optimization (RSO) algorithm and its novel software architecture packages of LIONsolver and Grapheur are capable of handling the big data often associated with MCDM problems. The two considered case studies are; firstly, a series of MCDM problems in construction workers’ management and secondly, the well-known MOO and decision-making problem of welded beam design.
