Título: Best-worst multi-criteria decision-making method ((Para informações complementares clicar aqui)

Resumo: Decision-making is part of our daily life, where the goal of the decision-maker (DM) is to select a course of action among a set of alternatives. This presentation is about a new method, called best-worst method (BWM), which can be used to solve multi-criteria decision-making (MCDM) problems. In an MCDM problem, a number of alternatives are evaluated with respect to a number of criteria in order to (identify and) select the best alternative(s).

Palestrante: Dr. Jafar Rezaei - Assistant professor of operations and supply chain management - section Transport and Logistics, TU Delft, Holanda

Título: “Decision-making and environmental assessment in a Danish context”  (Para informações complementares clicar aqui)

Resumo: In his PhD, Ivar Lyhne investigated strategic decision-making processes and the application of the decision-support tool environmental assessment of plans and programs. In cooperation with the Danish energy sector, he explored decision-making processes and investigated views on environmental assessments. In this presentation, Ivar Lyhne will present his research. He will outline how current practices and institutional setup of strategic decision-making constitute challenges for the application of decision-support tools. He proposes to change our view of strategic decisions to a series of minor choices that in total constitute a strategic choice. Furthermore, based on research findings, he will argue that the dynamics of strategic developments in the sector constitute severe requirements on the flexibility of decision-support tool.

Palestrante: Professor Ivar Lyhne, Aalborg University

Título: “Deep Insights Anytime, Anywhere: a big data approach to research productivity through the study of National Science Foundation grant applications” (para informações complementares clicar aqui)

Resumo: A significant amount of data derived from federal funding are not appropriately archived, indexed, and utilized to make operational or policy decisions. These data are also known as “dark data”. This “dark data” are at extremely large scale. Understanding the impact of federal investments is not just an academic exercise. Rather, we see this as a process that can have direct policy and operational impacts on how the larger community is funded in the future.

Título: Ferramenta de Design Conceptual Participativo

Resumo: This work presents with practical cases conducted in Mozambique the wood fuel energy systems conceptual design metamodel, the 2MW. The 2MW is a novel design tool to assist all knowledgeable actors on wood fuel (e.g. firewood users, charcoal makers, policy makers) in the participatory conceptual design of WES, i.e.,in the process of co-conception, co-specification and co-modelling of WES. Furthermore the 2MW is an effective and useful framework to analyze and facilitate the definition/specification of production, business and political strategies on wood fuel.

Palestrante: Dr. Ricardo Martins (PhD do Imperial College)
