  • Chiraphadhanakul, Virot (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    A myriad of uncontrollable factors in airline operations make delays and disruptions unavoidable. Most conventional scheduling models, however, ignore the presence of uncertainties in actual operations in order to limit ...
  • Psaraftis, Harilaos N.; Solomon, Marius M.; Magnanti, Thomas L.; Kim, Tai-Up (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Operations Research Center, 1986-09)
    In this paper we examine computational complexity issues and develop algorithms for a class of "shoreline" single-vehicle routing and scheduling problems with release time constraints. Problems in this class are interesting ...
  • Leung, Janny M. Y.; Magnanti, Thomas L.; Singhal, Vijay (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Operations Research Center, 1988-01)
    We develop an optimization-based approach for a point-to-point route planning problem that arises in many large scale delivery systems(for example, less-than-truckload freight, rail, mail and package delivery, communications). ...
  • Key, Jonathan Ramsay, 1976- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
    This thesis considers tlhe problem of routing in a network where the travel times along the arcs are modeled as independent random variables. A standard approach to routing in such networks is to select a path with the ...
  • Cohen, Jonathan E. W. (Jonathan Ephraim Weis), 1976- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2000)
    In this thesis, we considered the costs and benefits of implementing Positive Passenger Bag Match (PPBM) - an anti-terrorist measure to keep bombs out of checked luggage - on US domestic passenger flights. We constructed ...
  • Veatch, Michael H.; Wein, Lawrence M. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Operations Research Center, 1992-09)
    A single machine produces several different classes of items in a make-to-stock mode. We consider the problem of scheduling the machine to regulate finished goods inventory, minimizing holding and backorder or holding and ...
  • Bai, X.; Gershwin, Stanley B. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Operations Research Center, 1990-06)
    In this paper, a real-time feedback control algorithm is developed for scheduling single-part-type production lines in which there are three important classes of activities: operations, failures, and starvation or blockage. ...
  • Sethuraman, Jayachandran, 1970- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1999)
  • Chevalier, Philippe B.; Wein, Lawrence M. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Operations Research Center, 1990-07)
    We consider the problem of finding an optimal dynamic priority sequencing policy to maximize the mean throughput rate in a multistation, multiclass closed queueing network with general service time distributions and a ...
  • Berman, Oded; Larson, Richard C., 1943- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Operations Research Center, 1994-02)
    We define a service factory to be a network of service-related-workstations, at which assigned workers process work-in-progress that flows through the workstations. Examples of service factory work include mail processing ...
  • Stier Moses, Nicolás E (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
    A common assumption in network optimization models is that a central authority controls the whole system. However, in some applications there are independent users, and assuming that they will follow directions given by ...

  • Kolen, A.W. J.; Rinnooy Kan, A. H. G.; Van Hoesel, C. P. M.; Wagelmans, Albert (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Operations Research Center, 1990-10)
    When jobs have to be processed on a set of identical parallel machines so as to minimize the makespan of the schedule, list scheduling rules form a popular class of heuristics. The order in which jobs appear on the list ...
  • Shapiro, Jeremy F., 1939-; White, David Edwin; Wood, David O. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Operations Research Center, 1977)
  • Van Hoesel, Stan; Wagelmans, Albert (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Operations Research Center, 1990-11)
    In this paper we study sensitivity analysis of the uncapacitated single level economic lot-sizing problem, which was introduced by Wagner and Whitin about thirty years ago. In particular we are concerned with the computation ...
