Article
Accurate forecasts of daily arrivals are of essential to allocate seat resources for transportation companies. Most studies addressed the issue from conventional time series aspects to retrieve historical arrival patterns and project future numbers. This study aims to utilize railway reservation records instead of arrival data to construct self-evo...
Article
Tourism activities derived from specific themes are getting popular in the market; nevertheless, extant or novel service content in the itinerary is not always appreciated by tourists. This study aims to propose an analytic tool for evaluating prospective policies so that tourism operators can expect potential effects before official implementation...
Article
The aim of this study is to explore preferences of thematic itineraries from tourists’ perspectives. As traditional Chinese holy folklore creatures normally concretized as stone statue, these statues with spiritual power are perceived to be apotheosis and are deemed unique tourism resources. This study utilizes holy lion statues as an example of th...
Article
As transportation is essential for tourism development, effectively utilizing its perishable resources has become an important issue. This study aims to analyse the relationship between airline fares and using conditions from the perspective of millennial tourists and taking the Taipei–Tokyo market as an example. The study attempts to show a revenu...
Article
To assess tourist motivations at the battlefield site on Kinmen Island of Taiwan, an empirical investigation was conducted. From a convenience sample, we collected 437 effective responses of respondents including domestic and international tourists with different cultural background in Kinmen. The structure of motivation was first examined via fact...
Article
Wineries and distilleries commonly provide itineraries for tourists to experience their historical background, producing techniques, storage places, along with a sip of alcohol at the end. By providing such services, winery/distillery operators aim to build up customer relationship and strengthen company images, which in the long run result in a br...
Article
Tourism has become one of the most important leisure activities for residences in Taiwan. The tourism-driven transportation demand is significant and should be regarded as a vital issue. In order to understand tourists’ behaviors while facing multiple mode alternatives in a tourist spot, this study addresses the issue of tourism mode preferences th...
Article
A fare table derived from homogeneous service is essential for revenue management applications in the airline industry. Restrictions or so-called fences are usually regarded as a useful tool to differentiate homogeneous seat service. Nevertheless, the relationships among fares and fences are not yet clear. This study aims to investigate passengers’...
Article
Full-text available
This study utilizes the characteristics of railway reservation data and proposes a novel model based on the concept of curve similarity. The proposed model considers mainly temporal features hidden in the reservation data and establishes four modules. Similarity evaluation module is responsible for identifying similar booking curves in the historic...
Article
The aim of this study is to explore the notion of destination resources and competitiveness through comparative analyses of tourists’ perceptions and satisfaction, using Kinmen Island of Taiwan as an example. Based upon an empirical investigation, the study draws upon the effective responses of 577 Taiwanese and Chinese tourists in Kinmen and attem...
Article
The objective of this study aims to investigate tourist preferences for liquor souvenirs at a destination by identifying key influencing factors and address the impact of demographic features on preferences. The framework of multinomial logit model is applied to reveal the importance of attributes on the choice of a liquor souvenir. 310 stated-pref...
Chapter
This entry overviews the trend and status quo of crime and punishment in Taiwan. Background and distinguishing features of the Taiwanese criminal justice are concisely introduced. More fundamentally, statistics of recent crimes in Taiwan are collected in order to show the patterns of crime events and the corresponding components. The correlation be...
Article
Full-text available
Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to investigate the perceptions and satisfaction between police officers and citizens on Kinmen Island (of Taiwan), using an analytical framework that combines five primary dimensions and 25 corresponding determinants. Design/methodology/approach – It considers recent developments in the application of perform...
Article
Demand forecasting provides essential information for intercity bus operators to conduct the fare menu aiming to attract passengers from multiple segments. As a result, it is critical for the bus corporation to be capable of integrating forecasting and pricing activities in the daily operation. This study focuses on analyzing real ticket sales data...
Article
The objective of this study is to survey the usage of internet filter software for blocking inappropriate web contents in Taiwan, and also to investigate the precedent factors for adopting such a prevention tool. We surveyed 417 households with children/adolescents (aged below 16) and home internet access. Participants answered questions which were...
Chapter
Given that customers can reserve many days before the service day, they, not uncommon, are also allowed to cancel their reservations before using the service. Expecting the volume of cancellations helps operators effectively manipulate their resources, which in many cases are limited and also perishable such as hotel rooms and railway seats. This p...
Article
This paper proposes a three-stage model to predict final sales when advanced booking, which is prevalent in the service industry, is available. The concept behind the proposal is that similar booking patterns during the reservation period indicate the trend of sales. Booking curves which record accumulated reservations were collected from a railway...
Chapter
This study addresses how to construct sales forecasting models by using restaurant reservation data. The issues of how to retrieve booking patterns, search for influential parameters, and divide samples for training, validating, and testing are discussed. Regression and Pick Up models, which are common practice, are also built as benchmarks. We use...
Article
Accurate forecasts are the base for correct decisions in revenue management. This paper addresses two novel neural network structures for short-term railway passenger demand forecasting. An idea to render information at suitable places rather than mixing all available information at the beginning in neural network operations is proposed. The first...
Conference Paper
This paper proposes a three-stage model to predict final sales when advanced booking, which is prevalent in service industry, is available. The concept behind the proposal is that similar booking patterns during the reservation period indicate the trend of sales. Booking curves which record accumulated reservations are collected. The first stage is...
Article
Full-text available
This paper develops two dynamic neural network structures to forecast short-term railway passenger demand. The first neural network structure follows the idea of autoregressive model in time series forecasting and forms a nonlinear autoregressive model. In addition, two experiments are tested to eliminate redundant inputs and training samples. The...
Article
Presented is a demand-responsive pricing method for the product line of Taiwan high-speed rail. Considered are the objectives of both the operator and the passenger with their leader-follower and noncooperative relationships. The method is constructed by a bilevel program. A pricing model, which is the upper-level problem, considers three structure...
