Urban brownfields are found in all parts of the world. They suffer from a negative image and are generally being viewed as problem areas. However, urban brownfields also offer potentials for new uses and for the ecological regeneration of cities. Strategic decision-making has a long term impact on the quality of life, ecological balance and urban structure. Therefore, the paper is aimed at providing a methodology for selecting the optimal scenario for urban brownfields regarding criteria for urban development and focuses on three possible scenarios representing sustainable urban development in the city. The results of the research are provided as a priority list for each scenario in the context of every neighbourhood of Vilnius city. The obtained results show the scenario optimal for each neighbourhood having the highest priority to implementing solutions in real life. Economic, social, physical (urbanistic) and environmental criteria are considered. Geographic information system (GIS) tools are employed for collecting spatial information, obtaining the initial set of criteria and deriving statistical data. Different MCDA methods, including TOPSIS, EDAS, COPRAS and SAW are used in the research. The correlation between the values of the sets pairs of cumulative criteria for the applied MCDA methods appeared to be satisfactory for the conducted re-search. The developed framework will support the decision-making process in brownfield land redevelopment aiding sustainable urban planning.
Article 0 Reads 1 Citation Assessment of efficiency of assignment of vehicles to tasks in supply chains: a case study of a municipal company Published: 17 January 2017

The main purpose of the paper is to present criteria of efficiency of assignment of vehicles to tasks at municipal companies, which collect garbage from city inhabitants. Three types of criteria are introduced in the paper: garbage collection time, length of route allocation, and utilization of resources. A two-stage method of optimization of task-routes is proposed. It generates tasks at the first stage and assigns vehicles to the tasks at the second stage. At municipal companies that are responsible for garbage, collection tasks are not pre-defined, and consequently tasks must be designated before the workday. The proposed method is based on genetic algorithm, which is used for the purpose of optimization of the assignment problem. The obtained by the algorithm optimal assignment is compared with assignments obtained in the random way. Criteria of evaluation of efficiency of the obtained route of different mutually conflicting dimensions were introduced, such as is task realization time, distances travelled on particular routes, and number of vehicles involved in garbage collection. Efficiency of the obtained assignment appeared to be sufficiently good.
Conference 0 Reads 1 Citation On multiple dimensions of criteria representing financial globalisation Published: 12 May 2016
Business and Management 2016, doi: 10.3846/bm.2016.31
A prevailing contemporary concept of major researchers in the field of economics suggests that financial globalisation creates positive effect on economic growth. Besides this crucial hypothesis many other related with financial liberalisation hypotheses are being tested. Financial liberalisation is an integral part of globalisation. Quantitative gauging of the level of globalisation creates opportunities for more precise identification of causes of prominence or lagging of the home country or any other country in question in comparison with its peers, and creates possibilities to analyse if the country is fully realising its economic potential. Analysis of criteria and their categories, which reflect the level of financial globalisation, is a compulsory step for any quantitative evaluation. The purpose of the study is to reveal importance of accurate evaluation of the level of financial globalisation for allowing further important research to be carried out on such prime economic processes as economic growth, corruption; income inequality; politics; financial stability; prudential policy, to provide a brief overview of the variety of existing approaches available in the literature, which attempt to quantitatively evaluate the level of financial globalisation.

PROMET - Traffic&Transportation, doi: 10.7307/ptt.v28i2.1767
A rapid rise in car ownership in the cities of Lithuania, particularly in Vilnius, has generated continuous traffic jams in the streets and thus has consequently increased a negative transport impact and demand for financial and land resources. Also, a high level of car ownership requires large reserves of transport infrastructure. Therefore, it is necessary to create favourable conditions for creating sustainable urban transport infrastructure satisfying the needs of local inhabitants. Within the framework of the European Union Structural Assistance for the period 2014-2020, Vilnius city municipality administration is planning to submit an application to receiving financial support for the implementation of the Park-and-Ride (hereinafter P&R) scheme for Vilnius. The paper is aimed at working out a multi-criteria methodology for selecting the sites of P&R lots and at carrying out a developmental analysis of P&R facilities by creating the above introduced scheme for parking lots in Vilnius City. The expert method has been used for utilizing a set of relevant criteria for planning the P&R scheme. With the help of the expert survey, the weights and significance of the defined criteria have been identified. Multi-criteria methods have been applied for calculating and presenting developmental priorities and a strategy for the implementation of the offered proposals.

Evaluation of the level of soundness and stability of commercial banks is an idiosyncratic task, since banks have a complicated internal business structure, intertwined cash flows and strong influence of market conditions on their soundness levels. Using several methods of multicriteria decision aid (MCDA) SAW, PROMETHEE II, TOPSIS and COPRAS in this paper to make the evaluation provided clear and intelligible evaluation in the form of rankings. Te result made in this format is designed to make rough comparisons of commercial banks. Nevertheless, more detailed evaluation must employ additional proprietary tools promptly exposing numerous specific data in a clear form. Reporting tools, simplifying thorough analysis of financial data, which exposes bank performance, are proposed in this paper. They help a decision-maker (depositor, bank management or a comptroller) to instantly observe both strength and weakness of commercial banks by categories of its performance criteria (capital, assets, management, earnings and liquidity) and dynamics of performance of a bank.
