Speech Title

The BMMB Model and 6Pi Framewrok for Innovation and Engineering Management


Whether Chinese culture positively or negatively influences innovation and engineering management has been discussed for a long time. This talk will introduce a BMMB model (Body-Mind-Matter-BoK) to explore the impact of Chinese culture on innovation and engineering management. The BMMB model provides a system linkage among human body, mind of thinking, matters to be studied and the related body of knowledge as well as the impact from the Chinese culture. The BMMB model will be further developed into a 6Pi framework that can be directly used for any project on innovation, new product development, entrepreneurship and engineering management. The BMMB and 6Pi model will be summerised in a U model of Chinese Wisdom and may explain the suucess of Asian economic miracles in Chinese culture circle.

An Effective Genetic Algorithm for the Resource Leveling Problem with Generalized Precedence Relations


 Resource leveling aims to obtain a feasible schedule to minimize the resource usage fluctuations during project execution. It is of crucial importance in project scheduling to ensure the effective use of scarce and expensive renewable resources, and has been successfully applied to production environments, such as make-to-order and engineering-to-order systems. In real life projects, general temporal relationships are often needed to model complex time-dependencies among activities. We develop a novel genetic algorithm (GA) for the resource leveling problem with generalized precedence relations (RLP-GPR). Our design and implementation of GA features an efficient schedule generation scheme, built upon a new encoding mechanism that combines the random key representation and the shift vector representation. A two-pass local search based improvement procedure is devised and integrated into the GA to enhance the algorithmic performance. Our GA is able to obtain near optimal solutions with less than 2% optimality gap for small instances in fractions of a second. It outperforms or is competitive with the state-of-the-art algorithms for large benchmark instances with size up to 1000 activities.
