Abstract

The advances in the computer technology have led to significant productivity enhancement in the information processing technology. This is basically due to increasing utilization of computers virtually in every area of applied sciences that urged efficient and effective information processing for solving the complex problems encountered. One can consider that such problems may be encountered in complex engineering systems. Historically, the computer-aided and/or enhanced applications were initially restricted to algorithmic computations. Algorithmic solutions are mostly systematic solution procedures primarily based on first principles. However, especially in the last decade, in
