Common Metamodel of Questionnaire Model and Decision Tree Model

Mirza Suljic, Edin Osmanbegovic, Željko Dobrović
2018 Research in Applied Economics  
Therefore, the result reveals a common meta-model that over common concepts and with the use of metamodeling connects the methods: questionnaires and decision trees.  ...  The questionnaire method was established as one of the methods for data collecting, while the decision tree method represents an alternative way of presenting and analyzing decision making situations.  ...  All data collected by the survey method can be globally seen as entering a dynamic system for processing and information transferring, and on its output there is a tree decision method as a decision-making  ...

Framework for Modelling Multi-stakeholder City Logistics Domain Using the Agent based Modelling Approach

Nilesh Anand, J.H. Ron van Duin, Lori Tavasszy
2016 Transportation Research Procedia  
This is exacerbated by interdependency of city logistics activities, decision making with limited information and stakeholders' preference for personal objectives over system efficiency.  ...  With the capabilities of representing a system in a natural and flexible way, agent based modelling (ABM) is a promising alternative for the city logistics domain.  ...  The game focuses on validating the decision making process of a shop-agent by comparing it with the decision making process of a player who is playing a role of shop-agent in the game.  ...
