A Double-Quality-Guaranteed (DQG) Renting Scheme For Service Providers

Pathi V Venkata Sivannarayana, B Srinivas


A fresh double renting scheme is proposed for service providers. It unites long-term renting with short-term renting, which can not only please quality-of-service requirements under the varying supplier for profit maximization is devise and two kinds of optimal solutions, i.e., the ideal solutions and the actual solutions, are get respectively. A series of contrast are given to confirm the performance of our scheme. The results show that the proposed Double-Quality-Guaranteed (DQG) renting scheme can realize more profit than the compared Single-Quality-Unguaranteed (SQU) renting scheme in the foundation of guaranteeing the service quality entirely
