Using moving-window cross-validation algorithm to optimize bid-based cost estimating data usage.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): International Journal of Construction Management. Nov2022, Vol. 22 Issue 15, p2855-2863. 9p.

Abstract: Transportation agencies provide guidance on using bid data from previous projects to prepare construction cost estimates that are based on assumptions whose validity is not challenged in the existing literature. Some of these assumptions refer to the o...

What difference might retractions make? An estimate of the potential epistemic cost of retractions on meta-analyses.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Accountability in Research: Policies & Quality Assurance. Oct2022, Vol. 29 Issue 7, p442-459. 18p. 1 Diagram, 2 Graphs.

Abstract: The extent to which a retraction might require revising previous scientific estimates and beliefs – which we define as the epistemic cost – is unknown. We collected a sample of 229 meta-analyses published between 2013 and 2016 that had cited a retracte...

Posterior Separable Cost of Information.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): American Economic Review. Oct2022, Vol. 112 Issue 10, p3215-3259. 45p.

Authors:

Abstract: We provide testable conditions under which the cost of acquiring information is given by the expected reduction of a measure of uncertainty (e.g., entropy). The assumption, under the name of posterior separability, is nearly universal in the literature...

Cost estimate system using structured query language in BIM.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): International Journal of Construction Management. Oct2022, Vol. 22 Issue 14, p2731-2743. 13p.

Authors:

Abstract: Projects mainly fail due to inaccurate cost estimates. Building Information Modelling (BIM) provides an opportunity to utilize its database to develop a reliable cost estimate. The existing BIM-Based cost estimate tools rely on quantity extraction of d...

A Risk Assessment Framework for Scheduling Projects With Resource and Duration Uncertainties.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): IEEE Transactions on Engineering Management. Oct2022, Vol. 69 Issue 5, p1917-1931. 15p.

Abstract: This article investigates the impacts of uncertainties in duration and resource availability and usage on project time and cost. This is done by modeling different scenarios as relevant resource-constrained project scheduling problems. The aim is to de...

Functional sufficient dimension reduction based on weighted method.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Communications in Statistics: Simulation & Computation. 2022, Vol. 51 Issue 11, p6902-6923. 22p.

Abstract: In the last 20 years, many of functional sufficient dimension reduction (FSDR) methods are developed. Among all of the FSDR methods, the most popular methods are functional sliced inverse regression (FSIR) and functional sliced average variance estimat...

Affordability through design: the role of building costs in collaborative housing.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Housing Studies. Nov2022, Vol. 37 Issue 10, p1800-1820. 21p. 3 Diagrams, 2 Charts.

Abstract: Against the background of the current housing affordability crisis, a new wave of 'collaborative housing' (CH) is developing in many European cities. In this paper, CH refers to housing projects where residents choose to share certain spaces and are in...

Class‐wise boundary regression by uncertainty in temporal action detection.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): IET Image Processing (Wiley-Blackwell). Dec2022, Vol. 16 Issue 14, p3854-3862. 9p.

Abstract: Temporal action detection is a crucial aspect of video understanding. It aims to classify the action as well as locate the start and end boundaries of the action in the untrimmed videos. As deep learning is frequently utilized, the accuracy of annotati...

To do or not to do? Cost-sensitive causal classification with individual treatment effect estimates.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): European Journal of Operational Research. Mar2023, Vol. 305 Issue 2, p838-852. 15p.

Abstract: • We introduce a cost-sensitive decision-making framework for causal classification. • We derive the classification boundary to maximize the expected causal profit. • We establish a new cost-sensitive ranking approach with individual treatment effects....
