    This paper will attempt to illuminate the advantages of an approach to the job shop scheduling problem using priority based search algorithms and database technology. It will use as basis a system developed for and ...
  • Lottering, W.A.; Claasen, S.J. (Schalk Johannes) (Southern African Institute for Industrial Engineering, 1988-12)
    Ontwerpdoelwitte vir die betroubaarheid an instandhoubaarheid van substelsels moet so bepaal word dat die gebruikersvereiste ten opsigte van betroubaarheid en instandhoubaarheid van die stelsel behaal word as substelseldoelwitte ...
  • Kruger, P.S. (Paul Stephanus), 1944- (1989-06)
    The purpose and scope of this paper may be summarized as follows: An attempt to make the Industrial Engineering community aware of the existence and potential benefits of Expert Systems technology, providing a superficial ...
  • Kruger, P.S. (Paul Stephanus), 1944- (South African Journal of Industrial Engineering, 1989-06)
    This paper will attempt to provide information with regard to some of the expert system development tools that are available. It will also provide some guidelines which may be used in the selection of appropriate system ...
  • Richter, W.; Kruger, P.S. (Paul Stephanus), 1944- (South African Journal of Industrial Engineering, 1989-06)
    Artificial intelligence techniques are rapidly emerging as important contributors to more effective management. One of the greatest growth areas probably lies in the use of Expert System methodology for supporting managerial ...
  • Kruger, P.S. (Paul Stephanus), 1944- (South African Journal of Industrial Engineering, 1989-06)
    The purpose of this paper is primarily to explore and illustrate the concepts and possible application areas of expert system technology, as well as the characteristics and features of some expert system development ...
  • Kleinschmidt, Heinrich; Kruger, P.S. (Paul Stephanus), 1944- (South African Journal of Industrial Engineering, 1989-12)
    The concepts of mission analysis and supportability are considered from the first principles of processes and the interface between the two concepts are discussed.
  • Kruger, P.S. (Paul Stephanus), 1944-; Schutte, C.S.L. (South African Journal of Industrial Engineering, 1990-06)
    Simulation modelling is a general purpose tool that may be used to provide decision support in a number of application areas. It may be used to analyze, design or "optimize" manufacturing materials handling, management ...
