  • Using the fuzzy analytic network process for selecting technology R&D projects

    Technology development programs have proven to be useful strategies for governments to encourage private firms to undertake R&D projects. Due to limited budgets, a government must select proper R&D projects for funding. R&D project selection is full of uncertainty and can be viewed as a multiple-criteria decision that is normally made by a review committee. In this study, we propose a fuzzy ...

  • Evaluation of advanced manufacturing technologies for world-class using analytical network process method

    In this paper, we develop a decision tool to help managers make more accurate decisions about their investments in advanced manufacturing technologies. Since selection of a new technology is an innately multidimensional problem and there exist interdependent relationships among different dimensions of the system, the analytic network process (ANP) method is used to consider interdependencies ...

  • Data analytics and the materials cycle

    Data has the potential to revolutionise the materials industry, from extraction to processing to commercialisation. But it can only do so with the right mix of technology, skills and strategy. Dr Matt Jones explains. Using data is nothing new, but the rapid increase in data sources and quantity of data collected means getting the most out of it is ever more important. Properly used, data ...

  • Using Devices and Analytics in Safety

    Technology touches virtually everything we do in modern society and in EH&S, it is becoming more prevalent by the day. Businesses can now use analytics and devices to vastly improve their safety strategy and, thanks to data that is obtainable from both humans and connected machines, make much smarter, strategic EH&S decisions. The rise of the ...

  • Analytical hierarchical process (AHP) as a decision support tool in water resources management

    Despite advances in water conservation, abstraction and transport, water demand has been increasing worldwide in the past few decades. This has resulted in an increased pressure on stakeholders to provide sustainable solutions to meet future water demands. The decision-making process to find those solutions is becoming increasingly complicated. First, owing to the arrival of new technologies or ...

  • Greywater treatment for reuse: comparison of reuse options using analytic hierarchy process

    The objective of the present study was to: (i) examine the performance of two-stage sand filtration and the effect of coagulants on greywater (GW) characteristics; (ii) assess the quality of treated GW for reuse; and (iii) compare reuse options using the analytic hierarchy process (AHP). Four treatment options were examined on site. The first option was related to two-stage sand filtration ...

  • A combined graph theory and analytic hierarchy process approach for multicriteria evaluation of hydrogen energy systems

    Hydrogen is a renewable energy source and has the potential to mitigate the green house gas effect and to meet the increasing global electricity demand. In the present study, a multicriteria methodology is developed by combining graph theory and analytic hierarchy process methods for the evaluation and selection of hydrogen energy systems. The hydrogen energy system alternatives are assessed ...

  • Predictive Analytics Will Be Critical to Beating the Driver Shortage

    The number of people working in the U.S. trucking industry hit an all-time high in December: 1.47 million, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. That’s impressive — and great for the industry — but in no way does it eliminate the intense, industry-wide concern about and focus on the enormous projected need for more drivers every year through at least 2030.  ...

  • Sampling and On-Site Analytical Methods for Volatiles in Soil and Groundwater - Field Guidance Manual

    Abstract: Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are among the most frequently identified contaminants in soil and groundwater samples obtained during the investigation of suspected hazardous waste sites. Because some VOCs and their degradation products are potentially mutagenic, carcinogenic, or teratogenic, their concentrations in these two matrices are key factors in the risk assessment process. ...

  • Analytical Devices for the Measurement of Water Vapor and Hydrocarbon Dew-Point in Natural Gas

    Introduction The determination of water vapor (water dew point) is crucial in the processing, custody transfer and transport of natural gas. High levels of water vapor in a natural gas stream can lead to a number of problems which include the formation of hydrates and the contribution to corrosion of plant and equipment. Furthermore, water vapor present in natural gas streams affects the ...

  • Thermal Treatment Technologies

    Hot gas decontamination: Hot gas decontamination is a technology still in the pilot-scale of development that can be used for decontamination of explosives-contaminated masonry or metallic structures. The method involves sealing and insulating the structures, heating with hot gas stream to 260 °C (500 °F) for a prescribed period of time, volatilizing the explosive contaminants, and destroying ...

  • The research on the measurement of corporate technology capability

    There is a consensus among scholars supporting the notion that firms that receive technology transfer need a certain level of technological capability to transfer technology effectively from external sources. However, technology capability has many different dimensions and is difficult to measure. Thus, there is no complete set of indicators that can measure the degree of technology capability in ...
