    Kishk, Mohammed; Al-Hajj, Assem (Glasgow Caledonian University, School of the Built & Natural Environment, 2000)
    KISHK, M. and AL-HAJJ, A., 2000. A fuzzy model and algorithm to handle subjectivity in life cycle costing based decision-making. Journal of Financial Management of Property and Construction, 5(1-2), pp. 93-104
    A life cycle costing (LCC) algorithm that can effectively deal with judgmental assessments of input parameters is proposed. This algorithm is based on the fuzzy set theory and interval mathematics. The development of the ...

    A number of recently developed algorithms to handle uncertain information in whole life costing (WLC) are explained and validated in the context of two example applications. In the first example application, the proposed ...
  • An innovative integrated approach to whole life costing. 

    Kishk, Mohammed; Al-Hajj, Assem; Pollock, Robert (Glasgow Caledonian University, School of the Built & Natural Environment, 2002)
    KISHK, M., Al-HAJJ, A. and POLLOCK, R., 2002. An innovative integrated approach to whole life costing. Journal of Financial Management of Property and Construction, 7(1), pp. 31-40
    A number of recently developed algorithms are combined to build an innovative integrated whole life costing approach. The integration process is based on the simple idea of breaking the decision-making process into a ...
  • Stone cleaning: a value assessment. 

    Laing, Richard Alexander (The Robert Gordon University Scott Sutherland School of Architecture and Built Environment, 1999-03)
    Buildings are an important record of a country's history and cultural heritage, and make an important contribution to modern cultural identity. Any intervention which changes their appearance, or the manner in which they ...
