1. Problem Definition

I am planning to renovate my house in sha Allah in February 2014 and I will call it “Our Lovely House Brownfield Project”.

The term brownfield was originally used in construction and development to reference land that at some point was occupied by a permanent structure. In a brownfield project the structure would need to be demolished or renovated. (Source: http://www.webopedia.com/TERM/B/brownfield.html)

W7_TOM_ Lease VS Purchase (Own) Analysis of a Diesel Generator


1. Problem Definition

I am planning to start my own business and one from many business options seems favorable to me is investing in retail sectors which is a mini-mart at suburban area.

I wanted to have a 24 hours service mini-mart therefore need to have a Diesel Generator as a back-up power.

For information, a diesel generator is the combination of a diesel engine with an electric generator (often an alternator) to generate electrical energy.

Diesel generating sets are used in places without connection to the power grid, as emergency power-supply if the grid fails, as well as for more complex applications such as peak-lopping, grid support and export to the power grid. Sizing of diesel generators is critical to avoid low-load or a shortage of power and is complicated by modern electronics, specifically non-linear loads.

W3.1_TOM_Using Multiattribute Decisions Making Tools & Techniques to Determine Best Transportation Mode of Home-Office-Home


1 – Problem Recognition, Definition and Evaluation

I am one of million commuters who travel every day to Jakarta for business purpose. Traffic in Jakarta is a nightmare; Vehicles Growth in Jakarta is 11% while Road Growth is only 0.01% (http://www.tribunnews.com/metropolitan/2013/03/05/kendaraan-tumbuh-11-jalan-cuma-tumbuh-001).

It was predicted that in 2014 there will be saturated traffic congestion in Jakarta as shown in Figure 1 below if private vehicles are uncontrollable. I have to anticipate this situation and my plan is to formulate which is the best option transportation mode to take on.
