    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Nasiri, Mohsen (Author) ; Hajji, Rasool (Supervisor)
    Inventory control has been always considered important due to its prominent role in managing and better application of resources in the field of operational systems. Ordering system or review stock policy in supply chain management can be mentioned as one of the inventory control study fields of management. A lot of researches have been done in investigating ordering system in supply chain under certainty conditions; however, since the real world is full of uncertainties, parameters such as demand cannot be predicted exactly and we encounter with ambiguity. In this case, using crisp (exact) values can cause to decide wrongly (a wrong decision). On the other hand, due to absence of sufficient... 

    Automated Code Reviewer Recommendation for Pull Requests

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Moosa Reza, Mina Sadat (Author) ; Heydarnoori, Abbas (Supervisor)
    Nowadays, by distributed software development growth based on pull-requests, it is possible to review code changes before integrating into the master program by a third-party, informally and tool-based which is called Modern Code Review (MCR). Effectively performing MCR can facilitate the software evolution phase through reducing post-release defects. In MCR, after sending the pull request, the developer invites appropriate reviewers to inspect his code. Due to the high volume of requests and potential reviewers in many projects, selecting the appropriate reviewer is difficult and time consuming. Previously, a variety of recommender systems have been proposed that use methods based on...

    Strategic Network Formation defines how and why networks take particular forms. In many networks, the relation between nodes is determined by the choice of the participating players involved, not by an arbitrary rule. A "strategic2 modeling of network requires defining a network’s costs and benefits and predicts how individual preferences become outcomes. In strategic network formation it is important to look at the overall social benefit and to see if networks that players create manage to be efficient for the society in general. The code review process also referred to as peer review, stands out as a tried and tested method in a large palette of applications to allow... 

    Hierarchical Classification of Mobile App Reviews

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Mazraeh Khatiri, Sajad (Author) ; Heydarnoori, Abbas (Supervisor)
    Mobile application marketplaces are not only a distribution platform but also a place for users to give feedback on their experience with application. User reviews contain useful information for software evolution tasks including bug reports, user experience, and feature requests. Considering the massive number of reviews that popular apps receive every day, manual inspection of reviews is not feasible in many cases. Researchers have developed automated tools to classify reviews into fixed and general-purpose categories related to software evolution in order to assist developers. Although this classification can reduce the time and effort for mobile developers, it does not consider the...

    A Game Theoretic Inventory Model for a Two-Echelon Supply Chain with Poisson Demand

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Alaei, Saeed (Author) ; Hajji, Alireza (Supervisor)
    In this research, we study the differences between the centralized and decentralized approaches in a two-stage serial supply chain including a manufacturer and a retailer under the lost sale policy. The centralized approach results in optimal solution of the system and the decentralized one is based on Stackelberg game in which the manufacturer is the leader. The retailer uses the continuous review (r, Q) policy and the demand arrives according to the stationary Poisson process. In order to obtain the solution for two approaches, a set of computational steps are developed. Furthermore, we provide a numerical example and the corresponding sensitivity analysis to compare the two approaches....

    In transportation literature, User Equilibrium (UE) has been widely studied since early 1950's, many studies of which define equilibrium flow of traffic for uncapacitated networks based on Wardrop's first principle, implying also a Nash Equilibrium (NE). Although, in general, the two equilibria (UE and NE) are not explicitly the same, they are shown to be equivalent under special conditions for uncapacitated UE, when volume delay functions are separable, continuous, non-decreasing and non-negative. A good deal of research is devoted to explain UE in capacitated networks based on Wardrop's first principle and the concept of generalized costs. However, UE for capacitated networks, even under...
