  • Wein, Lawrence M.; Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Operations Research Center (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Operations Research Center, 1988)
  • Belloni, Alexandre; Sagastizabal, Claudia (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Operations Research Center, 2004-06)
    Lagrangian relaxation is a popular technique to solve difficult optimization problems. However, the applicability of this technique depends on having a relatively low number of hard constraints to dualize. When there are ...
  • Vranas, Peter B.; Bertsimas, Dimitris J.; Odoni, Amedeo R. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Operations Research Center, 1992-06)
    The yearly congestion costs in the US airline industry are estimated to be of the order of $2 billion. In [6] we have introduced and studied generic integer programming models for the static multi-airport ground holding ...
  • Modiano, Eduardo Marco; Shapiro, Jeremy F., 1939- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Operations Research Center, 1979)
  • Williams, Gareth Pierce (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    Planning and controlling production in a large make-to-order manufacturing network poses complex and costly operational problems. As customers continually submit customized orders, a centralized decision-maker must quickly ...
  • Martin, Kiel M. (Kiel Michael) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    In this thesis, we analyze intratheater airlift operations, and propose methods to improve the planning process. The United States Air Mobility Command is responsible for the air component of the world wide U.S. military ...
  • Schonfeld, Daniel (Daniel Ryan) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    Despite groundbreaking technology and revised operating procedures designed to improve the safety of air travel, numerous aviation accidents still occur every year. According to a recent report by the FAA's Aviation Weather ...
  • Bertsimas, Dimitris J.; Perakis, Georgia (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Operations Research Center, 2001-08)
    We present an optimization approach for jointly learning the demand as a functionof price, and dynamically setting prices of products in an oligopoly environment in order to maximize expected revenue. The models we consider ...
  • Adida, Elodie (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    Recently, revenue management has become popular in many industries such as the airline, the supply chain, and the transportation industry. Decision makers realize that even small improvements in their operations can have ...
  • Simon, Carine (Carine Anne Marie) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    In this thesis, we focus on oligopolistic markets for a single perishable product, where firms compete by setting prices (Bertrand competition) or by allocating quantities (Cournot competition) dynamically over a finite ...
  • Ou, Jihong; Wein, Lawrence M. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Operations Research Center, 1991-05)
    Motivated by semiconductor wafer fabrication, we consider a scheduling problem for a single-server multiclass queue. A single workstation fabricates semiconductor wafers according to a variety of different processes, where ...
  • Amonlirdviman, Kevin, 1975- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2002)
  • Van Hoesel, C. P. M.; Wagelmans, Albert; Wolsey, Laurence A. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Operations Research Center, 1991-02)
    A partial description of the convex hull of solutions to the economic lot-sizing problem with start-up costs (ELSS) has been derived recently. Here a larger class of valid inequalities is given and it is shown that these ...
  • Shum, Wanhang (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    In the past decade, we have seen significant increase in the level of outsourcing in many industries. This increase in the level of outsourcing increases the importance of implementing effective contracts in supply chains. ...
  • Wei, Yehua, Ph. D. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    The long chain has been an important concept in the design of flexible processes. This design concept, as well as other sparse flexibility structures, have been applied by the automotive and other industries as a way to ...
  • Ferreira, Joseph Jr.; Keeney, Ralph L. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Operations Research Center, 1971-12)
    In newspaper editorials, public commentaries and the like, licensing authorities are often advised to solve the "accident problem" by taking the "nut behind the wheel" off the road. This paper uses six-year driver records ...
  • Cucchiaro, Stephen; Ferreira, Joseph Jr.; Sicherman, Alan (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Operations Research Center, 1974-05)
    The effect of Massachusetts' reduced drinking age on auto accidents is examined by employing an interrupted time series analysis of monthly accident data covering the period January, 1969, through September 1973. The data ...
  • Hall, William D. (William David), 1968- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1999)
    This thesis proposes methods of allocating airport capacity to the users of the National Airspace System (NAS) during periods in which demand for the resources exceeds capacity. A metric by which the proposed methods are ...
  • Jones, Lee K.; Larson, Richard C., 1943- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Operations Research Center, 1994-03)
    This paper derives recursive algorithms for efficiently computing event probabilities related to order statistics and applies the results in a queue inferencing setting. Consider a set of N i.i.d. random variables in [0, ...
  • Jones, Lee K.; Larson, Richard C., 1943- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Operations Research Center, 1991-05)
    Consider a set of N i.i.d. random variables in [0, 1]. When the experimental values of the random variables are arranged in ascending order from smallest to largest, one has the order statistics of the set of random ...
