This method is often perceived to create a better interaction within the group (Rowe, 1991). The Delphi Method has been widely used to obtain a constant flow of expert opinions through survey. Questions come from related literature and those recommended by experts. Murray et al.  proposed to apply the Fuzzy Delphi method to group decisions.
The Delphi technique is a problem solving technique where you do not need to be in the same room to brainstorm ideas. For example using skype, E-mails or anonymous questionnaires. This can be used for the lack of flexibility challenge, an anonymous questionnaire can be sent to all of McDonald’s franchise owners to determine if all franchises are onboard with the, “Build your burger” solution and if not, they can suggest a possible solution. For the last challenge I would suggest the ‘DRIVE Technique’. This stands for Define; define the problem.
Measure of Dispersion Measure of Location Measure of location helps to report a typical value in the set of observations. The five measure of location are: 1. Arithmetic Mean Arithmetic mean is calculated by adding all the values in the data set then dividing it with the number
All the parts were formed in a cone shape with a diameter of 94 mm and to achieve the depth of 50 mm. Following table III shows the variable parameter combination during the experiments. For AA8011 experiments were formed according to L9 orthogonal array to obtain the quantitative values of response parameters. The orthogonal array is generally used to minimize the cost of experimentation and process time and meaning optimisation results should comes out. Table III Single point incremental forming parameter and their levels Factors Unit Level 1 Level 2 Level 3 Wall angle degrees 55 65 45 Step increment mm 0.2 0.5 1 Feed rate mm/min 500 800 1200 Spindle speed rpm 600 800 1000 The experimental work is also carried out to validate simulation results.
These generalized relationships are displayed in the form of 3 equations and can be used to determine unknown values for almost any offset slider-crank. These equations express the link lengths, L1, L2, and L3, as a function of the stroke,(ΔR4)max, the imbalance angle, β, and the angle of an arbitrary line L3, θ. Arbitrary line 3 is a designer-unique line that runs through the crank pivot point and the extreme retracted slider position. The 3 equations are as
This model has been used widely to assess forest conditions and status through the mapping of forest canopy density. Forest Canopy Density model is based on the growth phenomenon of forests and it can indicate the degree of degradation. Dense canopies represent healthy forest while sparse or no canopies indicate the reverse (Rikimaru et al 2002; Deka et al, 2012). FCD model is one of the useful methods to detect and estimate the canopy density over large area in a time and cost effective manner (Azizi Z et al
Radon transform is employed for estimating the orientation of texture patterns and Histogram equalization is performed to decrease illumination changes. For each wavelet sub images, cooccurrence matrix for gray texture analysis is calculated. Finally, the texture matching is performed based on statistical classification which includes six features namely mean, variance, smoothness, energy, homogeneity, and entropy. However, this system is not able to automatically recognize clothing patterns. In all these works , the needs of blind people were considered.
For example, if here is a curve and quadrilaterals at its beginning and end whose dimensions will depend on the curvature of the line at its initial and final points. If the form and position of the curve has been changed, the associated quadrilaterals will change their positions and sizes. This method of design extracts the required parameters from the designed structures and manipulates them using the right algorithms (Stavric & Marina, 2011). Associative design is based on parametric design techniques that exploit associative geometry. In parametric design relationships between objects are explicitly described, establishing interdependencies between the various objects.
