The aim of this paper is to present aspects of mathematical modeling for the hierarchization of study programs from universities, based on several quality characteristics. The tools used pertain to multicriterial optimization, to the different methods of assessing importance coefficients, to the utility theory, the fuzzy formalism, and to the fuzzy simple additive weighting method. The conclusion is that multicriterial decision-making methods can be efficiently used in assessing the quality of study programs, noting that, just like other methods from the decision theory, the multicriterial decision-making methods highlight aspects of problems differently, therefore, there can be no comparison or competitiveness between them, and choosing one over the other is up to the decision-maker.
It is known that for the scientific substantiation of quality management have been applied models that pertain to mathematical statistics, the probability theory, the information theory, fuzzy systems, graphic methods, time series, and algebraic and numerical methods.
The models are designed to identify certain flaws and to prevent failures, but also to develop goals based on the implementation of the proposed solutions.
The models are recommendations for the identification of opportunities to improve the quality management of human resource training and to make changes in the attitudes and actions performed by the management of organizations.
This paper sets forth a new result that use the concept of global indicator.
The fixed point theory is essential to various theoretical and applied fields, such as variational and linear inequalities, the approximation theory, nonlinear analysis, integral and differential equations and inclusions, the dynamic systems theory, mathematics of fractals, mathematical economics (game theory, equilibrium problems, and optimisation problems) and mathematical modelling. This paper presents a few benchmarks regarding the applications of the fixed point theory. This paper also debates if the results of the fixed point theory can be applied to the mathematical modelling of quality.

Global macro economical context, forced the researchers and organization from food industry, to focus more on identifying and developing of new alternative methods that might lead to a good performance in crisis conditions. These new methods aim a cost optimization, reduction of the environmental impact and the increase of customer satisfaction, while all the organizations pursue the sustainability of their own business.
The method presented in this paper, confirms the efforts of the researchers and organizations in food industry. In this study, food quality was defined throughout attributive and quantitative dimensions in order to establish a correlation between them. Sensory method it is proposed as an alternative in the educational system with the purpose of training the future specialists for sustainable development of the society.
Analysis of the role and implications of the funds coming from the European Union have on the national economy is very complex and complicated at the same time, because of the multitude of issues and indicators that this process shapes and drives, depending on the source of funding, the modality of funding and on the destination for which it has been allocated. Using mathematical models to assess the impact of European funding on the national economy is paramount valuable as it brings important information that can be used by policy makers in decision making sewage inputs and financial resources, in view of adopting optimal economic policy
The process of quality management consists of several stages defined by specific verbs. Some experts have named the stages after the following verbs[1,2,3]: to forecast and to plan, to organize, to direct, to control (Fayol), to plan, to do, to check, to act (Deming); to design, to implement, to manufacture, to deliver; to design, to supply, to control, to assess; to develop, to inspect, to control, to improve or to enhance; to establish quality policies and quality objectives, to establish strategies for quality planning, to determine strategies for quality control, to establish quality assurance policies, to establish policies in the field of quality improvement. In this work we will show that a model of improving the quality management process could be defined starting from the following verbs: to identify needs, to program, to construct, to verify. We will also define a new quality indicator in the Oprean-Bucur model. We applied the models for a course of the Faculty of Engineering from Sibiu, Romania.

The paper proposes the detailing of the concept of “Research School”, which encourage the maximization of the performance, both in the doctoral studies and also in the scientific research. The multi-criteria programming is used for the classification of the Romanian Research Schools in the field of engineering sciences. The application, realized through the method of multi-criteria programming in the field of evaluation and ranking of the research schools, will highlight that an optimum decision may be made through modelling and simulation in this field, with the information provided by Microsoft Excel, regarding the selection of a research school as being the closest to performance or excellence, and also regarding the ranking of the research schools.
