According to the principle of the static equilibrium, a definition of an equilibrium in production processes in civil engineering on the basis of the Game Theory is proposed. This creates an approach to solutions of dimensioning of construction processes, which has not been available through other methods. Furthermore, suggestions of fields of applications are given.

Solving optimization problems with time varying objective functions by methods of evolutionary computation can be grounded on the theoretical framework of dynamic fitness landscapes. In this chapter, we define such dynamic fitness landscapes and discuss their properties. To this end, analyzing tools for measuring topological and dynamical landscape properties are studied. Based on these landscape measures we obtain an approach for drawing conclusion regarding characteristic features of a given optimization problem. This may allow to address the question of how difficult the problem is for an evolutionary search, and what type of algorithm is most likely to solve it successfully. The methodology is illustrated using a well-known example, the moving peaks. © 2013 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.

This paper deals with the special role of knowledge examination within a knowledge production value chain. Any generated knowledge has to be examined to achieve diffusion and commercialisation. The methods of examination, however, vary. Within aeronautics, original equipment manufacturers executed for a long time the function as knowledge examiners, while the further diffusion was mainly based on trust and social proximities. With global sourcing and the rising importance of system suppliers as integrators of new knowledge, examination has to be more formalised posing new challenges to incumbent SMEs. The paper investigates these challenges and consequences for the aeronautics value chain. Copyright © 2010 Inderscience Enterprises Ltd.

Structural changes in the markets for large civil aircrafts cause new challenges for cluster policies in regions with production locations. The paper describes these challenges based on Porter's diamond model and compares the strategies and conditions for cluster policies at the two main Airbus production locations in Hamburg and Toulouse Copyright © 2010 Inderscience Enterprises Ltd.

Intransitivity is supposed to be a main reason for deficits in coevolutionary progress and inheritable superiority. Besides, coevolutionary dynamics is characterized by interactions yielding subjective fitness, but aiming at solutions that are superior with respect to an objective measurement. Such an approximation of objective fitness may be, for instance, generalization performance. In the paper a link between rating– and ranking–based measures of intransitivity and fitness landscapes that can address the dichotomy between subjective and objective fitness is explored. The approach is illustrated by numerical experiments involving a simple random game with continuously tunable degree of randomness. © Springer International Publishing Switzerland 2015.
