Abstract:Based on exploration criteria, the Phase-Out of an asset comprises the operation end of that asset. However, given the high cost of some assets, decision makers are faced by the dilemma of developing policies that allow them to extend the exploration period or find alternative scenarios for their use. With the aim of creating value, in terms of maintenance planning, this paper proposes a decision support model based on a multi-criteria approach, with the objective of selecting the best alternative. The proposed model analyzes the exploration extension scenario of an asset, identifying the actions necessary to guarantee its operational availability in relation to other alternative scenarios. The model developed was applied to the Alpha Jet fleet of the Portuguese Air Force, which is in Phase-Out period and will cease to operate in January 2018, and there is no definite decision for its use.

Abstract:In the arid parts of Pakistan, the farmers are socially excluded owing to their lack of access to technology and unaffordability of farm inputs. Two thirds of Pakistan is arid and dependent on rain. Irregular patterns of rainfall also play havoc with agricultural productivity and ultimately affects GDP & food security. The purpose of this research was to observe the existence of social exclusion of the small farmers from different dimensions and to study their neutral relationship. Case studies of 15 farmers were conducted to get information about social exclusion from different dimensions and their relationship. Analysis of the data supports the hypothesis of farmers’ social exclusion along a host of dimensions such as education, infrastructure and technological access. The extent of social exclusion is significantly more in the case of farmers living in disadvantaged areas. Most of the farmers do not have enough means to enhance their yield; lack of education, lack of access to adequate water resources and unawareness about modern technologies which is the major contributor to their exclusion.
