  • 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 

    Fernandez, Jeffrey E.; Pitetti, Kenneth H.; Betzen, M. T. (Sage Publications, 1990-08)
    The physical work capacity (PWC) and the physiological response to stimulated tasks of nine ambulatory individuals with cerebral palsy (CP) were studied. Energy demand for each work task was determined by percentage of PWC ...
  • Psychophysical lifting capacity over extended periods 

    Fernandez, Jeffrey E.; Ayoub, M. M.; Smith, James L. (Taylor & Francis, 1991-01)
    The effect of time on an individual's lifting capacity over extended periods using a psychophysical approach was studied. Twelve male subjects estimated their lifting capacity in a 25 min period, and then attempted to lift ...
  • SENSES: A knowledge-based sensor selection system 

    Ong, Jin B.; Masud, Abu S.M.; Eyada, Osama K. (Elsevier Ltd., 1992)
    A key component in any measurement and control system is the sensor. To operate reliably a sensor must meet all of the critical application specifications. Due to the myriad of factors that must be taken into consideration ...
