The paper pulls together research that the author and other researchers have carried out on using Shannon entropy as a measure for goal seeking input/output systems. Its aim is to show how the approach developed here can help to identify where and when systems start to behave unpredictably....
Mixed model manufacturing systems are increasingly used to meet global competition by providing a broad variety of products to customers. The increase of product variety adds more complexity to production processes, thus, leading to a negative effect on the performance of production processes....
This paper extends maximum entropy estimation of discrete probability distributions to the continuous case. This transition leads to a non-parametric estimation of a probability density function, preserving the maximum entropy principle. Furthermore, the derived density estimate provides a...
This paper proposes a model to assess the vulnerability of supply chain networks to disturbances, based upon topography and interconnectedness of various resources in the networks. First, in this paper the vulnerability of a supply chain system is defined based on expected amount of information...
We propose a new application of information entropy and motivate this application with the problem of routing aircraft between their gates and assigned runways for optimising airport surface operations. In this context, the more clustered (i.e., the less scattered) the scheduled uses of taxiway...
