  • Messmacher, Eduardo B. (Eduardo Bernhart), 1972- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2000)
    Organizations perform work essentially through operations and projects. The characteristics of projects makes them extremely difficult to manage: their non repetitive nature discards the trial and error learning, while ...
  • Pinker, Edieal Jacob; Larson, Richard C., 1943-; Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Operations Research Center (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Operations Research Center, 1995)
  • Veatch, Michael H.; Wein, Lawrence M. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Operations Research Center, 1991-08)
    Weber and Stidham (1987) used submodularity to establish transition monotonicity (a service completion at one station cannot reduce the service rate at another station) for Markovian queueing networks that meet certain ...

    In 1986, the total profits of the U.S. airline industry were of the order of $800 million, while its total delay costs due to congestion approached the figure of $2 billion. Motivated by this important problem of congestion ...

  • Bertsimas, Dimitris J.; Mourtzinou, Georgia (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Operations Research Center, 1993-10)
    We propose a new approach to analyze multiclass queueing systems in heavy traffic based on what we consider as fundamental laws in queueing systems, namely distributional and conservation laws. Methodologically, we extend ...

  • Magazine, Michael J.; Polak, George G.; Sharma, Dushyant (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Operations Research Center, 2001-03)
    In the manufacture of printed circuit boards, electronic components are attached to a blank board by one or more pick-and-place machines. Frequent machine setups, though time consuming, can reduce overall processing time. ...
  • Koepke, Corbin G. (Corbin Gene), 1977- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
    The United States Air Force's Air Mobility Command is responsible for creating a schedule and executing that schedule for a large-scale air mobility network that encompasses different mission areas. One of the mission areas ...
  • Jernigan, Nicholas R. (Nicholas Richard) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    In this paper we present a mixed integer optimization framework for modeling the shipment of goods between origin destination (O-D) pairs by vehicles of different types over a time-space network. The output of the model ...
  • Balakrishnan, Anantaram; Magnanti, Thomas L.; Mirchandani, Prakash (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Operations Research Center, 1991-12)
    This paper studies a new multi-facility network synthesis problem, called the Multi-level Network Design (MLND) problem, that arises in the topological design of hierarchical communication, transportation, and electric ...
  • Lepird, John R (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    Developed in the 1970's and 1980's, the Traffic Alert and Collision Avoidance System (TCAS) is the last safety net to prevent an aircraft mid-air collision. Although TCAS has been historically very effective, TCAS logic ...

  • Gouveia, Luis; Magnanti, Thomas L. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Operations Research Center, 2001-08)
    The Diameter-Constrained Minimum Spanning Tree Problem seeks a least cost spanning tree subject to a (diameter) bound imposed on the number of edges in the tree between any node pair. A traditional multicommodity flow model ...
  • Meyers, Carol, Ph. D. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    (cont.) We first address the complexity of finding an optimal minimum cost solution to a congestion game. We consider both network and general congestion games, and we examine several variants of the problem concerning the ...

  • Keilson, Julian; Servi, Les D. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Operations Research Center, 1990-01)
    For a network of G/oo service facilities, the transient joint distribution of the facility populations is found to have a simple Poisson product form with simple explicit formula for the means. In the network it is assumed ...
