    Hwang, C.L.; Paidy, S.R.; Yoon, K.; Masud, Abu S.M. (1980)
    A system of classifying about two dozen major methods for mathematical programming with multiple objectives, or multiple objective decision making (MODM) is presented. The classification has been based upon four categories ...
  • An aggregate production planning model and application of three multiple objective decision methods 

    Masud, Abu S.M.; Hwang, C.L. (Taylor & Francis, 1980)
    This paper presents a multiple objective formulation of the multi-product, multi-period aggregate production planning problem. The proposed model provides for individual consideration of the conflicting multiple objectives ...
  • Interactive sequential goal programming 

    Masud, Abu S.M.; Hwang, C.L. (Palgrave Macmillan, 1981)
    This paper introduces a new solution method based on Goal Programming for Multiple Objective Decision Making (MODM) problems. The method, called Interactive Sequential Goal Programming (ISGP), combines and extends the ...
  • An aggregate production planning model and application of three multiple objective decision methods 

    Masud, Abu S.M.; Hwang, C.L. (Industrial Engineering and Management Press, Institute of Industrial Engineers, 1984)
  • Forecasting plant labor productivity with a time series model 

    Masud, Abu S.M. (Elsevier Ltd., 1985)
    Plant labor productivity index, defined as the ratio of the standard labor hours and actual labor hours, is an important factor in the determination of the future manpower needs at Cessna Aircraft Co. (Pawnee Division). ...
  • A microcomputer-based knowledge system for CAD software selection 

    Masud, Abu S.M. (Elsevier, 1987)
    This paper documents a prototype knowledge system which has been developed to select the most appropriate CAD software based on the user's requirements and preferences.
  • An algorithm for multiple-objective non-linear programming 

    Masud, Abu S.M.; Zheng, Xitong (Palgrave Macmillan, 1989)
    An interactive algorithm to solve multiple-objective non-linear programming (MONLP) problems is proposed. In each iteration of the proposed algorithm, the decision-maker is presented with a solution and a set of direction ...
  • A knowledge-based system for sensor selection 

    Ong, Jin B.; Eyada, Osama K.; Masud, Abu S.M. (Elsevier, 1989)
    This paper presents a Knowledge-based system (KBS) developed to allow users, who may not be knowledgeable about sensors, to select sensors suitable for their specific needs. The KBS runs on a micro-computer. The selection ...
  • Essex -- An intelligent advisor for expert system shell selection 

    Huffman, John E.; Masud, Abu S.M.; Hommertzheim, Don (Elsevier, 1989)
    This paper described an advisory system for selecting expert system software. Some background into the problems that an organization might face in the selection of expert system software will first be presented. After this, ...
  • Physiological capacities of individuals with cerebral palsy
