Uncertain Values. An Axiomatic Approach to Axiological Uncertainty

Stefan Riedener
We need an argument to defend that it's true. This book introduces an axiomatic approach to answer these worries.  ...  The result is a formally cogent and philosophically compelling extension of standard decision theory, and original take on the problem of axiological or This book is based on my DPhil thesis, which I submitted  ...  In this book, I'll adopt an axiomatic approach from standard decision theory to answer the question of meaning and the question of truth about EVM.  ...

Argumentative systems for IS design

Mike Metcalfe
2002 Information Technology and People  
It has a deep philosophical basis, confronts the issue of uneven power relationships in stakeholders, does not assume objective knowledge, and encourages a learn-by-doing modular approach allowing rolling  ...  The argumentative system, known to the decision-making, communications, knowledge creation, problem solving, and research methods literature, can be generalised to assist IS design.  ...  The Working Paper Series is intended to make available the preliminary results of current research within CoBAR, in the areas of accounting, finance, information systems and business.  ...

Understanding Information Systems Outsourcing Success and Risks Through the Lens of Cognitive Biases

Anne C. Rouse, Brian J. Corbitt
2007 European Conference on Information Systems  
In this paper we adopt an "evidence based management" approach to first test these assumptions through a qualitative metaanalysis of academic studies into IS outsourcing outcomes.  ...  These focus groups were interpreted through the lens of research on a range of cognitive mechanisms and biases that are known to affect decision makers.  ...  once-off development of a system where the purchaser has no development capability) from (ii) outsourcing of ongoing services as an alternative to in-house delivery.  ...

Modeling the planning process in advanced planning systems

Anastasia J. Zoryk-Schalla, Jan C. Fransoo, Ton G. de Kok
2004 Information & Management  
In this paper, we examine this modeling process. Our approach is based on a normative method for hierarchical planning and presents a case study where this modeling process was used.  ...  Whereas much of the modeling literature in supply chain planning addresses the analysis of decision models and presents solution techniques and much of the empirical literature on planning systems such  ...  Replanning, as incorporated in a rolling schedule approach.  ...

The Front-End of Product Development as Systems Thinking and Predictive Learning

Charles L.K. Yamamura, Celma O. Ribeiro, Denise Dantas, Jose A. Quintanilha, Fernando T. Berssaneti
2019 Procedia Manufacturing  
This paper proposes the front-end should be akin to a scientific inquiry, with systems thinking and predictive learning as mainstays to create customer value and reduce its "fuzziness".  ...  This paper proposes the front-end should be akin to a scientific inquiry, with systems thinking and predictive learning as mainstays to create customer value and reduce its "fuzziness".  ...  Definitions were compiled for theoretical fit, rigor and conciseness. A central proposition was made and a theoretical model showing both conventional and systemic approaches were built.  ...

Mahmoud Houshmand, Mehdi Amani, L. Slatineanu
2017 MATEC Web of Conferences  
A literature review conducted and axiomatic design theory selected for this purpose.  ...  It has been reported that more than 50% of knowledge management systems have failed, therefore, it is required to seek for a new and comprehensive scientific approach to design and implement it.  ...  [14] in 2005, first began to design a knowledge management system based on the axiomatic design approach.  ...

A better best system account of lawhood

Jonathan Cohen, Craig Callender
2009 Philosophical Studies  
We'll argue that an acceptable MRL should (i) avoid inter-system comparisons of simplicity, strength, and balance, (ii) make lawhood epistemically accessible, and (iii) allow for laws in the special sciences  ...  Our question in this paper will be how best to formulate a theory of this kind.  ...  Glanzberg, David Hilbert, Carl Hoefer, Nick Huggett, Colin Klein, Barry Loewer, Ulrich Meyer, Chris Meacham, Jill North, Jonathan Schaffer, Joshua Schechter, Ted Sider, Paul Teller, Brian Weatherson, and an  ...

Aristotle's Natural Deduction System [chapter]

John Corcoran
1974 Ancient Logic and Its Modern Interpretations  
AristotIe In the present article we attempt to show that Aristotie's syllogistic is an underlying logie which includes a natural deductive system and that it is not an axiomatic theoryas had previously  ...  In the third place, the Aristotelian system is seen to be complete in the sense that every valid argument expressible in his system admits of a deduction within his deductive system; i.e., every semantically  ...  Thus an axiomatic science, though not itself a logical system, presupposes a logical system for its deductions (cf. Church, pp. 57, 317) .  ...

José A. Olalde Rangel
2005 Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine  
Western medical science lacks a solid philosophical and theoretical approach to disease cognition and therapeutics.  ...  The General System Theory (GST) took a forward step by proposing a departure from the mechanistic biological concept—of analyzing parts and processes in isolation—and brought us towards an organismic model  ...  They have had the valor to make Systemic Medicine a reality, and have so far brought the benefits of adaptogens to 300 000 patients.  ...
