As a result of civil war in Syria and Turkey’s open-door policy, almost 3 million refugees moved to Turkey since March 2011. The unexpected arrival of a large number of refugees within a relatively short period of time caused inadequate planning of the government-operated camps to fulfill the humanitarian needs of those affected individuals. The purpose of this study is to develop an optimization model that helps in the distribution of humanitarian aid to the refugees. The multi-objective optimization model decides on the facility locations by integrating total transportation distance minimization and covered demand maximization. Uncertainties in the supply ...

This paper summarizes the results of analyses to identify characteristics of flight deck information automation systems which can lead to potential human factors issues. Information automation systems are responsible for the collection, processing, analysis, and presentation of information to the flightcrew. Information automation systems can pose human factors issues and challenges particular to this type of automation. This paper presents a formal definition of information automation and identifies characteristics and associated human factors issues in the domain of aircraft flight deck systems. A method was developed to identify a set of consistent and independent characteristics of information automation. Characteristics, a ...
