Machine scheduling in custom furniture industry through neuro-evolutionary hybridization

Juan C. Vidal, Manuel Mucientes, Alberto Bugarín, Manuel Lama
2011 Applied Soft Computing  
Machine scheduling is a critical problem in industries where products are custom-designed.  ...  The wide range of products, the lack of previous experiences in manufacturing, and the several conflicting criteria used to evaluate the quality of the schedules define a huge search space.  ...  Neural networks are universal approximators and can easily be trained to map multidimensional nonlinear functions because of their parallel architecture.  ...

Innovation and scaling of ICT for the bottom-of-the-pyramid

Chris Foster, Richard Heeks
2013 Journal of Information Technology  
That perspective is then instantiated through the case study of a successfully-scaled ICT innovation that has reached millions of poor consumers: the Kenyan m-money system, M-Pesa.  ...  Synthesising the literature that challenges these dualities, this paper creates a systemic perspective that is particularly appropriate for scaling of ICT to bottom-of-the-pyramid (BoP) markets.  ...  The later functional expansion (section 4.5) can be read as part of a new scaling iteration for the new (albeit closely related) innovation of m-money systems, which will run in staggered parallel to the  ...
