This analysis is mainly considered T-junction or T-junctions like all other forms of road geometries which are more prone to accident. The model proposed is constructed by using a electronics devices along with driving simulator, to study the behavior of the yang inexperienced drivers as well as an experienced driver about their reaction by calling their phone from unknown numbers intentionally. The results show that drivers distracted by mobile phones uses the hard breaking due to least available time to respond after identification of an event. Some of the research and theory bearing on decision making and risk perception, driver situation awareness, and possible mediators of risk-taking is also analyzed here.</p> Md Faysal Kabir, Sahadev Roy Copyright (c) 2021 Decision Making: Applications in Management and Engineering Tue, 03 Jan 2023 00:00:00 +0000 An application of a novel grey-CODAS method to the selection of hub airport in North Africa <p>Air transportation and airports are indispensable means of the modern world, where well-being and travel time reliability are pillars of strength. In the past few years, passengers traveling into, within, or out of Africa has enormously increased. However, the region lacks the basic facilities for linking African countries to the outside world. The research studies the possibility of assigning the optimal hub airport location in five North African countries, based on five main criteria. The criteria include airport pricing, hard and soft infrastructure, Catchment and landside access, as well as other aspects such as markets and airline partners. The study uses a hybrid grey-CODAS approach to decide the final priority of different decision alternatives. The method was implemented in steps to determine the criteria weights. Four experts participated in the evaluation to determine the importance of each criterion used for the ranking of suggested airport sites. The suggested sites include Cairo airport, Tripoli airport, Tunisia- Carthage airport, Algeria- Houari Boumediene airport, and Morocco- Mohammed V International airport. Model ranking suggested Morocco as the best alternative to locate a hub airport in North Africa.</p> Ibrahim Badi, Abdulaziz Alosta, Omar Elmansouri, Ali Abdulshahed, Salem Elsharief Copyright (c) 2022 Decision Making: Applications in Management and Engineering Thu, 19 Jan 2023 00:00:00 +0000 New model for making resilient decisions in an uncertain context: The rational resilience-based decision-making model (R2DM) <p class="DMAMEabstract" style="margin-top: 0cm;">The present paper came into existence with the specific purpose of providing an optimized process that enables making resilient decisions in an uncertain context, and here our interest is particularly focused on the activity of new venture creation and on the entrepreneurial decision-making logic, in particular, effectuation theory. Within this framework, the rational resilience-based decision-making model (R<sup>2</sup>DM) is introduced. The relevant steps of this model are: (1) The identification of the problem and the available options. In this instance, the studied situation is the effectual customer co-creation case, and the available alternatives are planning, visionary, adaptative and transforming approaches, (2) The definition of the selection criteria that should be used to evaluate the available alternatives. In our case, these criteria are the six principles of entrepreneurial resilience, which are set out in detail, (3) The choice of the methodology to be followed in assessing the available options. To that end, three interconnected methods, based mainly on logical thinking and reasoning, are proposed. They are respectively devoted to Entrepreneurial resilience (ER) calculation, options classification using logistic regression algorithm, and the determination of the most resilient route to reach objectives employing graph theory. The obtained results are compared to what is advocated in the literature and conclusions are made.</p> Saloua Said, Hafida Bouloiz, Maryam Gallab Copyright (c) 2022 Decision Making: Applications in Management and Engineering Wed, 25 Jan 2023 00:00:00 +0000
