Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this article, the authors study the mangosteen supply chain in eastern Thailand and analyze the logistics cost structure for mangosteens farmers, and they find that the highest logistics cost consists of material handling such as post-harvest, grading, and handling, followed by transportation, procurement, customer communications, and inventory, respectively.

Journal ArticleDOI
Yejun Xu1, Huimin Wang1
TL;DR: In this article, the authors extend the distance measure to the linguistic fuzzy sets, and develop the linguistic distance operators, such as linguistic weighted distance (LWD) operator, linguistic ordered weighted distance operator (LOWD), and study some of their desired properties.

Journal ArticleDOI
Yun Yang1
TL;DR: Wang et al. as mentioned in this paper studied the career development of the employees in hotel industry in mainland China and found that women gain initial management jobs earlier than men and advance to senior position, but they are more difficult to become general manager than men.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this paper, a thermodynamic analysis of the actual air cycle refrigeration is performed, and the results show that the factors on the performance of an actual cycle include the pressure ratio, the isentropic efficiencies of the rotors, working temperature and etc.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this article, the authors explore how heritage themes and resources are treated in rapidly urbanizing cities to rectify the creation of tabula rasa and analyze the culture heritage of Penang which miss out by the local tourism authority from tourism perspective.

Journal ArticleDOI
Sanfa Cai1, Kai Ci1, Bin Zou1
TL;DR: From the perspective of engineering, the paper affords managers a theoretic method to control outsourcing risks by designing the incentive and monitoring mechanism of the producer services outsourcing contract.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: Results demonstrate that reversal patterns are convincingly identified by the model, and basically the model could be applied to establish a stock price reversal early warning system in the financial market.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: Wang et al. as mentioned in this paper developed an agent-based consumer affordability model, trying to observe the durables diffusion with price adjusting according to the evolution of product life cycle (PLC) by creating a large number of heterogeneous consumers in the artificial market.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: A BP neural network model is built up for the prediction to life casualties in an earthquake, which takes earthquake magnitude, depth of hypocenter, intensity of epicenter, level of preparedness, earthquake acceleration, population density, disaster forecasting as the key factors and fits for most cases of the earthquakes in this country.

Journal ArticleDOI
