He has published over 300 refereed papers which attracted more than 1400 citations over the last 20 years (ISI Web of Science; Google Scholar).

His DSc degree (1993) and the Title of Professor (2006) were gained in the area of information science for his international published contributions. Since coming to Australia in 1994, he has been awarded over 20 different competitive grants, and has also coordinated 4 Large European Union (EU) grants in the area of intelligent systems development. Contribution to the Research Area of Intelligent Information and Knowledge Management. The research of Prof Szczerbicki contributes significantly to the area of smart information use in modelling and development of complex and intelligent systems. With his papers published in the beginning of the nineties in IEEE Transactions he developed autonomous systems based on information processing for the purposes of intelligent decision support. This was his unique contribution to the emerging cross-disciplinary research area of smart information use for which information has a value, is treated as the main resource, and is the basis for intelligent decision making. Since then, he has contributed to the field with over 200 refereed publications making an outstanding impact at the international level.

In 1999 he was invited to serve as a Board Member of International Academic Advisory Council for Natural and Artificial Intelligence Systems Organization (NAISO), Canada. He was also invited to join Editorial Boards of Cybernetics and Systems, Cognitive Processing, International Journal of Knowledge-Based Intelligent Engineering Systems, and Management and Control. The contributions of Professor Szczerbicki have additionally been most recently acknowledged by (i) 20 invitations to deliver keynote addresses at international conferences (ii) invitation to act as a General Chair for International Symposium on Advances in Intelligent Industrial Systems, Australia 2000, Co-Chair for International Conference on Intelligent Information Technology for Environmental Engineering, Poland 2003, Track Chair for KES06, KES10, KES12 in the UK and (iii) invitation to guest edit over 20 volumes of CBS Special Issue on Intelligent Systems in the period of  2002-2016.

© Springer International Publishing AG 2017.This paper illustrates the idea of Smart Innovation Engineering (SIE) System that helps in carrying the process of product innovation. The SIE system collects the experiential knowledge from the formal decisional events. This expe- riential knowledge is collected from the set of similar products having some common functions and features. Due to the fact that SIE system collects, captures and reuses the experiential knowledge of all the similar products apart from the knowledge about new technological advancements, it behaves like a group of experts in its domain. Through this system, the innovation process of manufactured products can be greatly enhanced. Moreover, entrepreneurs and manufacturing organizations will be able to take proper, enhanced decisions and most importantly at appropriate time. The expertise of SIE System is ever increasing as every decision taken is stored in the form of set of experience that can be used in future for similar queries.

Copyright © 2016 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC. In this article, we introduce a novel concept combining neural network technology and Decisional DNA for knowledge representation and sharing. Instead of using traditional machine learning and knowledge discovery methods, this approach explores the way of knowledge extraction through deep learning processes based on a domains past decisional events captured by Decisional DNA. We compare our approach with kNN (k-nearest neighbors), logistic regression, and AdaBoost in classification tasks, and the results show that our approach is very promising with regard to the enhancement of the accuracy of knowledge-based predictions required in complex decision-making problems.

Copyright © 2016 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC. Knowledge and experience are essential requirements for product innovation. The presented paper proposes a systematic approach for product innovation support using a Smart Knowledge Management System comprising a Set of Experience Knowledge Structure (SOEKS) and Decisional DNA (DDNA). This proposed system is dynamic in nature because it updates itself every time a new decision related to innovation is made. Through this system, the product innovation process can be performed semiautomatically and efficiently because it stores knowledge of past experiences of innovative decisions.

Copyright © 2016 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC. In recent times, traditional manufacturing is upgrading and adopting Industry 4.0, which supports computerization of manufacturing by round-the-clock connection and communication of engineering objects. Consequently, Decisional DNA-based knowledge representation of manufacturing objects, processes, and system is achieved by virtual engineering objects (VEO), virtual engineering processes (VEP), and virtual engineering factories (VEF), respectively. In this study, assimilation of VEO-VEP-VEF concept in the Cyber-physical system-based Industry 4.0 is proposed. The planned concept is implemented on a case study. Also, Decisional DNA features such as similarity identification and phenotyping are explored for validation. It is concluded that this approach can support Industry 4.0 and can facilitate in real time critical, creative, and effective decision making.

© 2015 Informa UK Limited, trading as Taylor & Francis Group. The objective of this research is to provide a user-friendly and effective way of representing engineering processes for distributed manufacturing systems so that they can develop, accumulate and share knowledge. The basic definition and principle of the approach is introduced first and then the prototype version of the system is developed and demonstrated with case studies, which verify the feasibility of the proposed approach. This paper proposes a novel concept of virtual engineering process (VEP), which is experience-based knowledge representation of engineering processes. VEP is an extension of our previous work on virtual engineering object (VEO). VEP model includes complete process knowledge required to manufacture a component. This knowledge is captured from three distinctive aspects related to manufacturing. First, information about the manufacturing operations involved. Second, information about the resources/machines required to perform operations and third, information about process level decisions that are taken. It also aims to combine/share experience of engineering objects, manufacturing processes, and systems. It applies bio-inspired knowledge engineering approach called decisional DNA and set of experience-based knowledge representation.

© 2014 Elsevier B.V. In the real world, it is common to face optimization problems that have two or more objectives that must be optimized at the same time, that are typically explained in different units, and are in conflict with one another. This paper presents a hybrid structure that combines set of experience knowledge structures (SOEKS) and evolutionary algorithms, NSGA-II (Non-dominated Sorting Genetic Algorithm II), to solve multiple optimization problems. The proposed structure uses experience that is derived from a former decision event to improve the evolutionary algorithm's ability to find optimal solutions rapidly and efficiently. It is embedded in a smart experience-based data analysis system (SEDAS) introduced in the paper. Experimental illustrative results of SEDAS application to solve a travelling salesman problem show that our new proposed hybrid model can find optimal or close to true Pareto-optimal solutions in a fast and efficient way.

© J.UCS This paper proposes a service-oriented architecture for video analysis which separates object detection from event recognition. Our aim is to introduce new tools to be considered in the pathway towards Cognitive Vision as a support for classical Computer Vision techniques that have been broadly used by the scientific community. In the article, we particularly focus in solving some of the reported scalability issues found in current Computer Vision approaches by introducing an experience based approximation based on the Set of Experience Knowledge Structure (SOEKS). In our proposal, object detection takes place clientside, while event recognition takes place server-side. In order to implement our approach, we introduce a novel architecture that aims at recognizing events defined by a user using production rules (a part of the SOEKS model) and the detections made by the client using their own algorithms for visual recognition. In order to test our methodology, we present a case study, showing the scalability enhancements provided.

© Springer International Publishing Switzerland 2015. This paper presents a knowledge representation case study by constructing Decisional DNA of engineering objects. Decisional DNA, as a knowledge representation structure not only offers great possibilities on gathering explicit knowledge of formal decision events but also it is a powerful tool for decision-making process. The concept of Virtual engineering Object (VEO), which is a knowledge and experience representation of engineering artefacts, is also discussed. In this paper, we present several Sets of Experience of engineering objects used in manufacturing that were collected for the construction of a VEO-chromosome within the VEO-Decisional DNA. VEO is used to enhance manufacturing systems with predicting capabilities, facilitating decision-making in engineering processes knowledge handling.

© 2014 The authors and IOS Press. All rights reserved. Decision recommendations are a set of alternative options for clinical decisions (e.g. diagnosis, prognosis, treatment selection, follow-up and prevention) that are provided to decision makers by knowledge-based Clinical Decision Support Systems (k-CDSS) as aids. We propose to follow a reasoning over domain approach for the generation of decision recommendations, by gathering and inferring conclusions from production rules. In order to rationalize our approach we present a specification that will sustain the logic models supported in the Knowledge Bases we use for persistence. We introduce first the underlying knowledge model and then the necessary extensions that will convey towards the solution of the reported needs. The starting point of our approach is the work of Toro et al. [13] on Reflexive Ontologies (RO). We also propose an extension of RO, by including the handling and reasoning that production rules provide. Our approach speeds-up the recommendation generation process.

Clinical Decision Support Systems (CDSS) are active knowledge resources that use patient data to generate case specific advice. The fast pace of change of clinical knowledge imposes to CDSS the continuous update of the domain knowledge and decision criteria. Traditional approaches require costly tedious manual maintenance of the CDSS knowledge bases and repositories. Often, such an effort cannot be assumed by medical teams, hence maintenance is often faulty. In this paper, we propose a (semi-)automatic update process of the underlying knowledge bases and decision criteria of CDSS, following a learning paradigm based on previous experiences, such as the continuous learning that clinicians carry out in real life. In this process clinical decisional events are acquired and formalized inside the system by the use of the SOEKS and Decisional DNA experiential knowledge representation techniques. We propose three algorithms processing clinical experience to: (a) provide a weighting of the different decision criteria, (b) obtain their fine-tuning, and (c) achieve the formalization of new decision criteria. Finally, we present an implementation instance of a CDSS for the domain of breast cancer diagnosis and treatment. © 2014 Elsevier B.V.

Ontology processing is arguably a time-consuming process with high associated computational costs. Query actions constitute a crucial part of the reasoning process and are a primary source of time consumption. Reflexive ontologies (ROs) is a novel approach intended to reduce time consumption problems while providing a fast reaction from ontology-based applications. In this article we present the implementation of a knowledge-based clinical decision support system (CDSS) for the diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease, which was the benchmark used to evaluate the impact of RO in the overall performance of the system. The implementation details and the definition of the implementation methodology are exposed in this article, along with the results of the evaluation. Some novel techniques that aim to optimize the performance of ROs are also presented with highlights of the test application introduced in our previous work. © 2013 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.

In this article, we present a concept and case study of a novel approach that generates a television (TV) user's profile utilizing principles of fuzzy logic. A user profile refers to the user's basic information, such as gender, age, and profession. The generated profile has the potential to significantly improve Digital TV (DTV), making the service smarter and more user friendly. We apply the proposed approach to our previous work that introduced decisional DNA TV, which enables TV broadcasters to suggest program choices based upon the user's past viewing habits. Decisional DNA is a domain-independent, flexible, and standard experiential knowledge repository solution that allows for knowledge to be acquired, reused, evolved, and shared in an easy and portable way. The presented conceptual approach demonstrates how fuzzy logic methods can be deployed within DNA TV through an experimental implementation that generates a user profile by capturing viewing habits. © 2013 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.

Reinventing the wheel and making mistakes that have already been made by others are the obvious dangers when we embark on a new project. We can avoid these traps by smart use of past experience, which includes past mistakes, related to the area of our activities. The above creates two obvious challenges: first, experience capture and storage; and second, the ability to formalize it and use as a decision support tool. This article tries to address the two challenges by proposing an approach to smart experience management and illustrating this approach with a case involving the information technology (IT) workflow platform.

Nowadays, knowledge-based embedded systems have become a new trend on embedded systems. They are capable of knowledge acquisition, reusing, evolving and sharing. However, due to the lack of standardized solutions and development platforms, it is not only very hard to share knowledge among different knowledge-based embedded systems, but this also causes huge waste by redesign, redevelopment, and knowledge re-acquiring. In this paper, we propose the Decisional DNA-based Embedded Systems as a new approach to meet this demand. Decisional DNA is a domain-independent, flexible and standard knowledge representation structure. We apply Decisional DNA to embedded systems to make them acquire, reuse, evolve and share knowledge in an easy and standard way. As a result, we propose the features, architecture and application types for the embedded systems.

Virtual Engineering (VE) is defined as the integration of geometric models and related engineering tools (such as analysis, simulation, optimization and decision-making, etc), within a computerized environment that facilitates multidisciplinary and collaborative product development [1]. The focus of Virtual Engineering is to engage the human capacity for evaluation of complex systems and situations [2] . In this article, we present an architecture for the Semantic enhancement of Virtual Engineering Applications (VEA) through their embedded Virtual Engineering Tools. Our architecture follows a User-Intention-Domain schema and makes use of state of the art technologies like the Set of Experience Knowledge Structure and the Reflexive Ontologies in order to offer a better User experience with VEA. The main advantages of using Semantics in VEA can be summarized are: (i) an improved information and embedded Knowledge management, (ii) Enhancements in the search, knowledge and information sharing processes during the use of the VEA, (iii) The use of the intrinsic Knowledge embedded in the elements being described by the VEA and (iv) the empowerment of the User's knowledge and embedding of such knowledge in a structured and explicit conceptualization. © 2009 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.

Knowledge engineering techniques are becoming useful and popular components of hybrid integrated systems used to solve complicated practical problems in different disciplines. Knowledge engineering techniques offer features such as: learning from experience, handling noisy and incomplete data, helping with decision making, and predicting. This chapter presents the application of a knowledge structure to different fields of study by constructing Decisional DNA. Decisional DNA, as a knowledge representation structure, offers great possibilities on gathering explicit knowledge of formal decision events as well as a tool for decision making processes. Its versatility is shown in this chapter when applied to decisional domains in finances and energy. The main advantages of using the Decisional DNA rely on: (i) versatility and dynamicity of the knowledge structure, (ii) storage of day-to-day explicit experience in a single structure, (iii) transportability and share ability of the knowledge, and (iv) predicting capabilities based on the collected experience. Thus, after showing the results, we conclude that the Decisional DNA, as a unique structure, can be applied to multi-domain systems while enhancing predicting capabilities and facilitating knowledge engineering processes inside decision making systems. © 2009 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.

Knowledge-based systems, knowledge technologies, and knowledge management are the areas that have been gaining significant attention and importance in the recent process of the knowledge-based economy creation. The above relates not only to the national economy as a whole (macroeconomic level) but also to particular economy sectors and individual organizations. This article focuses on the role of knowledge management tools, technologies, and approaches in the process of dynamic development of Polish nongovernmental organization (NGO) sector. First, the current state of this role is examined and then a systemic model solution is proposed with an example of implementation supporting the enhancement of NGO operations and performance. The article concludes with the outline of further research in this area.

This article is a brief communication of a concept for building an experience-related knowledge database on top of a workflow system. The presented solution has two important characteristics. First, it is based on minimal effort approach and thus is truly cost-efficient. The second advantage of the proposed approach is low risk related to introduction of new workflow features. The novel ideas of the approach are illustrated using well-known, open-source software and an ordinary relational database. The presented solution is universal and can be easily tailored to be possible to use with other real-life cases including commercially boxed software.

Knowledge management, which covers knowledge acquisition, representation, storage, and usage, is one one of the most important smart use of information to enter into knowledge based society. The ability of the society to manage the existing knowledge base has become the benchmark by which the forward movement and expansion of knowledge horizons can be possible. Acquisition of the knowledge from efficient transformation of information, can mean the difference between success and failure for any company in the competitive environment of the global economy and knowledge society. The ability of the transformation of the information into knowledge, and then to use it in the decision making process, contributes in a substantial way to intelligent enterprises, known as the ability of a company to act appropriately in uncertain environments.

Systems become increasingly complex. Their decomposition into smaller units is the usual way to overcome the problem of complexity. This has historically led to the development of atomized structures consisting of a limited number of autonomous subsystems that decide about their own information input and output requirements, i.e., they can be characterized by what is called an information closure. Autonomous subsystems still can be interrelated and embedded in larger systems, as autonomy and independence are not equivalent concepts. These ideas are gaining a very strong interest in both academia and industry, and the atomized approach to information flow modeling and evaluation is an idea whose time has certainly come. This presentation discusses some modeling and evaluation issues, and challenges existing in the exciting area of knowledge capture for information flow-management support for autonomous subsystems.

The paper is concerned with autonomous agents competing among each other in a business setting in dynamic environment. Agents represent, in the most general way, businesses or companies characterized by three control parameters: process intensity, quality, and cost. The conceptual framework of a mathematical model based on pareto-optimality is presented that captures the relationship between the above parameters and describes the dynamics of agent's environment modelled as autoregressive process of the second order.

Concurrency is influenced by various agents, such as manufacturing agent, marketing, economic, design agent, etc. Concurrency set is a collection of attributes (manufacturability, serviceability, etc.) necessary to achieve concurrency. This paper discusses an approach to plan an optimal policy to expand concurrency sets in such a way that the desired concurrency level is confidently addressed by a designer during the design process undertaken in a concurrent environment. The presented approach is based on deduction graphs and the optimal concurrency plan is arrived at by applying a 0-1 integer programming technique.

Modelling of multilevel decisionmaking with imprecision can be applied to many different areas. In this paper it is proposed as a support tool in the field of concurrent engineering for the problem of concurrency satisfaction. The underlying conceptual model belongs to the class of deduction graphs in graph theory for which a theoretical framework exists. Concurrency is satisfied by a design team and is influenced by various agents, such as manufacturing agent, marketing, economic, maintenance agent, etc. Concurrency set is a collection of attributes (manufacturability, serviceability, etc.) necessary to achieve concurrency. This paper discusses an approach to plan an optimal policy to expand concurrency sets in situations where some attributes can be defined by different levels of acceptance. The ideas presented are illustrated with examples.

Concurrent engineering is gaining strong interest in industry. It can achieve what traditional engineering systems cannot: reduction in time and money needed for product design and manufacture. However, the concurrent strategy that considers a number of different life-cycle attributes might increase the complexity of the design process and make it more difficult to plan and manage. This paper proposes a methodology for the use of a multi-agent distributed system as the core logic in developing a planning system for a concurrent product design environment. It discusses both a framework and multi-agent architectural model necessary to implement a workable multi-agent system for product development.

In concurrent engineering (CE), an attempt is made to perform design activities simultaneously rather than in series as in the case of traditional design processes. The theoretical benefits of this concurrent approach are a reduction of the duration of the design project, cost savings, and better quality of the final design. Practical implementations of CE in industry indicate that successfully managing the CE design process to achieve these goals will require advanced techniques and tools. A framework for a multiagent distributed system that supports analysis, planning and scheduling in order to provide coordination and control of the design process in a CE design environment is proposed. The ultimate goal of the envisaged framework is to provide engineering management with a design process planning software application which utilizes multiagent distributed systems (MADS) integrated to other knowledge sources (agents) by means of a blackboard-based architecture.

This paper introduces Petri nets as a modelling and simulation tool for the performance analysis of components (agents) of a manufacturing system. Manufacturing agents are characterized by concurrent and asynchronous events taking place in dynamic environment. Petri nets are well suited for modelling of such agents because they capture the precedence relations for these events. Other techniques like linear programming, scheduling, SLAM II simulation system, analytical models, queuing theory, MANUPLAN modelling, and/or neural networks could also be used for the above analysis. Petri net, however, is a tool with the highest level of flexibility, enables rapid modelling development, has detailed modelling capabilities, and fast execution. An illustrative example of analysis included in the paper shows that Petri net provides detailed information on system states and dynamics, as well as performance measures.

Autonomous manufacturing agents consist of components (people, machines) tied by the flow of information. Such an information flow defines an information structure for an agent (acquisition and exchange of information). Information structure differs in different types of external and internal environments. For dynamic environments the effects of the delay of information form a very important issue that has not yet been solved in practice. This issue matches very frequent real-life situations in which the following should be answered: 'What is better, complete information but heavily delayed or incomplete information less delayed?' A mathematical model can be used to describe an information flow, the resulting information structure, and informational balance (amount of information vs. delay of information) in dynamic environments. However, analysis and evaluation of an information flow based on mathematical model is difficult because of its substantial complexity. Qualitative reasoning methods are discussed and qualitative approach is proposed to ease the task of balancing informational needs of an agent.

In an organizational and behavioural context, autonomous systems consist of groups of people tied by the flow of information between a group and its external environment as well as within a group. A mathematical model is used to evaluate such an information flow. The evaluation is performed for different types of external and internal environments. Two major cases are taken into account, i.e. static and dynamic processes describing the external environment. Such issues as the role of correlation and interaction, and the losses caused by incomplete and delayed information are addressed. The results of the model-based evaluation of an information flow in different decision situations are formulated as IF ¿ AND ¿ THEN rules that provide some useful knowledge about functioning of autonomous groups. Generation of such knowledge is an important factor in successful implementation of some ideas related to atomized organizations. The concepts included in the model are illustrated with an example providing interpretation and relationship with real situations. © 1994 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.

In an organizational context autonomous agents consist of groups of people, machines, robots, and/or guided vehicles tied by the flow of information between an agent and its external environment as well as within an agent. Mathematical modeling is used to evaluate such an information flow. The evaluation of an information flow is performed for different types of external and internal environments. Two major cases are taken into account, i.e., static and dynamic processes describing the external environment. Such issues as the role of correlation as well as interaction and the losses caused by incomplete and delayed information are addressed. Only actions that are described by real numbers and utility functions that are twice differentiable are considered. The results of the model-based evaluation of an information flow in different decision situations are formulated as IF ¿ AND ¿ THEN rules that provide some useful knowledge about autonomous agents functioning. Generation of such knowledge is an important factor in successful implementation of ideas related to atomized organizations and provides a bridge into the distributed systems and artificial intelligence (AI) communities. To support the development of such a bridge, an approach is suggested that combines knowledge expressed by traditional IF ¿ THEN rules with machine learning technique based on the training of a neural network. A three-layer neural configuration is used. It is demonstrated that the use of networks shows promise as a tool for the development of information structure for autonomous agents. The concepts included in the paper are illustrated with examples providing interpretation and relation to real situations. © 1993 IEEE

The environment of the manufacturing systems designer who at the early design stage is preoccupied with modelling and identification processes, is increasing in complexity. To deal with this complexity, systems analysts need to he supported in a number of areas and stages of their activities. This paper looks at the early stage of such activities that concerns decomposition of tasks and functions identifying a manufacturing system. Decomposition occurs at the highest level of abstraction and it must provide enough information for the lower level design stages where manufacturing functions are transformed into manufacturing agents that are further integrated through the flow of information into the informational model of the overall system. The proposed approach includes incorporation of logic into functional space and some elements of optimization in this space. The methodology presented is illustrated with examples. © 1993 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.

A three stage approach to the development of multi-agent systems is proposed involving functional decomposition, agent representation, and information flow integration. The information flow integration stage is discussed in detail. A rule-based agent integration for construction of autonomous subsystems and systems useful in integrated manufacturing is presented. The approach formalizes the integration process that a system analyst solves in an ad hoc manner. The approach presented facilitates the discovery of new integrated manufacturing solutions. It involves generation of a set of autonomous agents for building an overall system. Hierarchically structured subsystems are developed at different levels of abstraction that parallel the approach used by an expert system analyst. The implementation of an integration process in an object-oriented programming environment is also suggested. © 1993 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.

Some elements of the systems approach to the analysis of an information flow in a dynamic environment are proposed. The resulting control system is designed to enable a manager to structure an information exchange taking into account the effects of delay. It matches very frequent real-life situations in which the following should be answered: ¿What is better, complete information but heavily delayed or incomplete information less delayed?¿ The paper is primarily concerned with the mathematical representation of the functioning of autonomous groups, i.e. groups which themselves determine information requirements, flow and processing. Emphasis is placed on the role of delay in an evaluation of information flow. © 1993 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.

Organizations that are divided into a certain number of groups are said to have an atomized structure. Group approach to organization is recently gaining popularity. There are a number of techniques that can be used to study and develop mathematical models of group functioning. This technique originates from what is called cybernetic design of organization and they are based on the systems approach, mathematical modelling and simulation. The tools developed so far, however, are applied to the groups that have already been denned as parts of a larger organization. What is still needed is a technique upon which the decision concerning creation of groups may be based. The intent of this paper is to propose a graph-based approach for atomized organization structure development. The depth-first search algorithm versus matrix based technique is discussed. It is shown that the group retrieval process may be carried out using easily programmable operations on an adjacency matrix. © 1992 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.

In this paper, a methodology for the specification stage in conceptual design is presented. The specification stage provides requirements and transforms them into functions of the designed object. It occurs at the highest level of abstraction and it must provide enough information for the synthesis process where functions are transformed into design components that are further synthesized into the designed object. The proposed approach includes the following issues: specification of requirements, specification of functions, incorporation of logic into functional and requirement trees, representation of requirements-functions interaction, and optimization in the functional space.

Conceptual design is a process of converting design requirements into an acceptable design solution. An object-oriented system for conceptual design is presented. The process of component synthesis is guided by production rules. An object-oriented programming paradigm is chosen since it simulates the designer's way of thinking during conceptual design. The system is implemented in Smalltalk-80 programming language and environment. Besides providing all the characteristics of an object-oriented language, Smalltalk-80 allows for development of highly user-friendly interfaces.

Currently we are witnessing a substantial diffusion of mathematical modelling methods from the so-called hard sciences to the socio-economic and life sciences. The general thesis that more mathematical modelling is appropriate for the study of organization is shared by many authors. In this paper an attempt has been made to show how mathematical tools can be used in the analysis of an information flow in the functioning of autonomous groups. Such analysis helps us to understand the role of certain parameters describing group external and internal environments in an information flow evaluation. The analysts presented is descriptive in nature and provides some useful IF ¿THEN ¿ rules describing group functioning in various decision situations. The rules obtained are in conformity with our intuition, they account for some facts observed in real life, and can be used to support decision-making in the process of structuring an information flow between a group and its external environment, as well as information exchange within a group (between group members). An illustrative example is included to demonstrate the relation between the concepts presented and real situations. © 1991 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.

In mathematical models representing economic, industrial, social, and behavioural phenomena, the representation of the prototypes is less reliabie and accurate than in the so-called hard sciences. The uses of models in this area are also entirely different; they are created and used mainly to gain some understanding of the prototype. Such a prototype is analysed in this paper, which is primarily concerned with the mathematical representation of the functioning of autonomous groups, i.e. groups which themselves determine information requirements, flow, and processing. Emphasis is placed on the role of correlation (describing the group¿s external environment) and interaction (describing the group¿s internal environment) in an evaluation of information flow. © 1990 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.

The required level of interaction and flexibility in almost any organization in a technological environment can be achieved by designing and creating its structure based on a systems approach. The ideas and features of such an approach certainly look attractive but only in a few cases they have been successfully implemented. One of the reasons is the difficulty with organizing a control process. We will introduce the concept of control based on sensoring the value of the formation structure and its losses due to information delay and incompleteness. For the sake of simplicity a technologically based group, which is a subsystem of an organization, has been chosen. We will discuss the systems approach in modelling group functioning.

In about one third of accommodation spaces in ships the required noise level is exceeded. Building of the 'quiet' ship requires applying prediction methods at a very early design stage. In this paper a new approach to prediction of A-weighted noise levels and octave band noise levels, based on the statistical multiple regression theory is proposed. The results of this method correspond with the measurement results and the accuracy of this method is comparable with other equivalent methods of prediction of A-weighted noise levels.

Results of the second stage of investigations aimed at the development of an effective method for predicting noise levels in accomodations in the superstructure of ships are presented. The present procedure is based on a statistical model of multiple regression and uses standard results of noise measurements on board ships. It permits prediction of noise levels in 6 octave bands over the frequency range 63-2000 Hz, with an accuracy comparable to those of the equivalent foreign methods.

© 2018, Springer International Publishing AG. This paper proposes the integration of image processing techniques (such as image segmentation, feature extraction and selection) and a knowledge representation approach in a framework for the development of an automatic system able to identify, in real time, unsafe activities in industrial environments. In this framework, the visual information (feature extraction) acquired from video-camera images and other context based gathered data are represented as Set of Experience Knowledge Structure (SOEKS), a formal decision event for reasoning and risk evaluation. Then, grouped sets of decisions from the same category are stored as decisional experience Decisional DNA (DDNA) to support future decision making events in similar input images. Unlike the existing sensor and vision-based approaches, that required rewriting most of the code when a condition, situation or requirement changes, our platform is an adaptable system capable of working in a variety of video analysis scenarios. Depending on the safety requirements of each industrial environment, users can feed the system with flexible rules and in the end, the platform provides decision makers with hazard evaluations that reuse experience for event identification and correction.

© 2018, Springer International Publishing AG. This paper presents a semi-automatic system capable of facilitating product innovation process. This system, known as Smart Innovation Engineering (SIE) system, helps in decision-making by using the explicit knowledge of formal decision events. The SIE system carries the promise to support the innovation processes of manufactured products in a quick and efficient way. It stores and reuses the past decisional events or sets of experiences related to innovation issues, which significantly enhances innovation progression. This system can be potentially used in large enterprises manufacturing a range of similar products or a group of Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). The analysis of basic concepts and implementation method proves that SIE system is an expert system facilitating Cyber Physical Systems (CPS) and it can play a vital role towards Industry 4.0. This system provides flexibility and customization of products, is quick and systematic, and can be further extended and used for lean innovation and sustainable innovation.

© 2017 - IOS Press and the authors. All rights reserved. In this paper, we propose the Neural Knowledge DNA, a framework that tailors the ideas underlying the success of neural networks to the scope of knowledge representation. Knowledge representation is a fundamental field that dedicates to representing information about the world in a form that computer systems can utilize to solve complex tasks. The proposed Neural Knowledge DNA is designed to support discovering, storing, reusing, improving, and sharing knowledge among machines and computing devices. It is constructed in a similar fashion of how DNA formed: Built up by four essential elements. As the DNA produces phenotypes, the Neural Knowledge DNA carries information and knowledge via its four essential interrelated elements, namely, Networks, Experiences, States, and Actions; which store the detail of the artificial neural networks for training and reusing such knowledge. The novelty of this approach is that it uses previous decisional experience to collect and expand intelligence for future decision making formalized support. The experience based collective computational techniques of Set of Experience Knowledge Structure (SOEKS) and Decisional DNA (DDNA) are used to develop aforesaid decisional sustenance. Together with artificial neural networks and reinforcement learning, the proposed Neural Knowledge DNA is used to catch knowledge of a very simple maze problem, and the results show that our Neural Knowledge DNA is a very promising knowledge representation approach for artificial neural network-based intelligent systems.

© 2016 The Authors. This paper presents a framework for monitoring, analysing and decision making for a smart manufacturing environment. We maintain that this approach could play a vital role in developing an architecture and implementation of Industry 4.0. The proposed model has features like experience based knowledge representation and semantic analysis of engineering objects and manufacturing process. It is also capable of continuous real time visualization of key performance indicators (KPI's) and supports M2M communications over novel protocols like OPC-UA. Our model covers the industrial manufacturing cycle right from capturing raw data at machine level, converting it into useful information, doing semantics analysis and performs real time KPI visualization.

© Springer International Publishing Switzerland 2015. In this paper, we propose a novel approach, the Experience-Oriented Smart Things that allows experiential knowledge discovery, storage, involving, and sharing for Internet of Things. The main features, architecture, and initial experiments of this approach are introduced. Rather than take all the data produced by Internet of Things, this approach focuses on acquiring only interesting data for its knowledge discovery process. By catching decision events, this approach gathers its own daily operation experience, which is the interesting data, and uses such experience for knowledge discovery. An initial experiment was made at the end of this paper, by applying this approach to a sensors-equipped bicycle, the bicycle is able to learn user¿s physical features and recognize its user out of other riders. Customized version of Decisional DNA is used in this approach as the knowledge representation technique. Decisional DNA is a domain-independent, and flexible, and standard experiential knowledge repository solution that allows knowledge to be acquired, reused, evolved and shared easily. The presented conceptual approach demonstrates how knowledge can be discovered through its domain¿s experiences and stored as Decisional DNA.

© 2015 The Authors. Published by Elsevier B.V. This paper reviews the theories, parallels and variances between Virtual Engineering Object (VEO)/Virtual Engineering Process (VEP) and Cyber Physical System (CPS). VEO and VEP is an experience based knowledge representation of engineering objects and processes respectively. Cyber-physical systems (CPSs) are the next generation of engineered systems in which computing, communication, and control technologies are tightly integrated. The analysis of basic concepts and implementation method proves that VEO/VEP is a specialized form of CPS and it can play a vital role in the structure building of Industry 4.0. Integration of the two models may result in intelligent machines and advanced analytics.

The paper introduces some challenges of the fast growing mortgage market in Poland. One of these challenges is the need for a model development that could be used for various predictions related to this market. At the current stage of the model development process our main goal is to propose and introduce sub-models the role of which would be to describe three different economic environments: stable, fast growing, and recession. After proposing the above three sub-models the paper concludes with directions of further research in this area. © 2011 Springer-Verlag.

In this paper a methodology for the specification stage in conceptual design is presented. It allows for problem solving in an active interaction with the designer. An important part of the proposed methodology is the requiremental and functional tree representing the overall logic and structure of the design problem. The specification stage aims at providing requirements and transforming them into functions of the designed object. It occurs at the highest level of abstraction and it must provide enough information to begin the synthesis process where functions are transformed into design components that are further synthesized into the designed object. The proposed approach was motivated by the following problems: specification of requirements, specification of functions, incorporation of logic into functional and requiremental trees, representation of requirements-functions interaction, and optimization in the functional space. The methodology presented is illustrated with examples.
