Engineering the Decision-Making Process Using Multiple Markov Theories and DEMO [chapter]

Sérgio Guerreiro
2015 Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing  
In this context, this paper combines information systems engineering (DEMO business transactions design) and operation research (Markov theories) to contribute to the decision-making body of knowledge.  ...  For this reason, in a process-based organization, when change is demanded (e.g., business processes re-engineering) it is difficult to collect, and interpret, the complete information about the current  ...  So forth, we propose and evaluate an innovative approach combining DEMO-based business process design [5, 7] ) and operations research (using Markov decision process (MDP) and partial observable Markov  ...

A Risk-Based Approach Supporting Enterprise Architecture Evolution [chapter]

Khaled Gaaloul, Sérgio Guerreiro
2015 Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing  
To that end, we rationalize on a set of design decisions that are mapped on a non deterministic finite automaton, which is then evaluated by Markov decision processes.  ...  In this paper, we present an approach supporting design decision during EA evolution. The idea is to reason on (To-be) models when evolving to a posterior state.  ...  consider that all the artifacts are observable and then a Markov decision processes (MDP) could be used in that situation.  ...

Learning Frameworks for Dynamic Joint RF Energy Harvesting and Channel Access

Fahira Sangare, Duy H. N. Nguyen, Zhu Han
2019 IEEE Access  
The second strategy is an opportunistic sensing framework for the Markovian MAB when the state of the underlying Markov process is partially observed.  ...  The simulation results show that lower regrets can be obtained with more information on the underlying Markov process of the MAB.  ...  Based on the partially observed Markov decision process (POMDP) framework, we propose a greedy strategy to select the channel pair with the highest believed future reward.  ...

Security Risk Management via Dynamic Games with Learning

Praveen Bommannavar, Tansu Alpcan, Nick Bambos
