Sustainability Assessment of Nations and Related Decision Making Using Fuzzy Logic

Kouloumpis, V.D.; Kouikoglou, Vassilis S.; Phillis, Yannis A. Systems Journal, IEEE, 2008

This paper refines and extends in fundamental ways an existing model for the numerical assessment of sustainability called sustainability assessment by fuzzy evaluation (SAFE). SAFE, in its basic form, uses fuzzy logic to combine a large suite of basic indicators and then computes numerical values of sustainability for a number of composite indicators such as air, land, economy, health, etc. ...


Skill acquisition in engineering education for achieving sustainability

Chandu, R.S.; Kancharla, N.A. Engineering Education: Innovative Practices and Future Trends (AICERA), 2012 IEEE International Conference on, 2012

Engineering problems interconnected sustainability challenges such as climate change, loss of biodiversity, economic and social instability are becoming increasingly serious concerns for mankind. Engineers have so far failed to address the problems of sustainability. It was found in several survey's that engineering graduates do not possess necessary skills to tackle sustainability related problems. Sustainability is a problem being faced by ...
