  • Landivar Chávez, José Luis (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    Hewlett-Packard's Industry Standard Servers (ISS) organization offers a large variety of server computers and accessories. The large range of options available to its customers gives way to complex processes and less than ...
  • Ma, Jan, S.M. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    This project explores portfolio management and planning through effectively reducing complexity within operations. We apply this to a major healthcare company (referred to as Company X). The anticipated launch of new ...
  • Chaudhari, Upendra Vasant (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1993)
  • Sommerkorn, Peter (Peter Wilford) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    A significant amount of complexity exists within the brand and product portfolios of PharmaCo. This complexity is driven by several factors: first, medical needs for differing products and dosages; second, marketing requests ...
  • Kinnunen, Matti J. (Matti Juhani) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    This thesis lays the necessary groundwork for measuring the complexity of systems architecture models. We propose a set of complexity measures, which are usable with models defined using the Object-Process Model (OPM). In ...
  • Stockmeyer, Larry Joseph (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1974)
  • Drucker, Andrew Donald (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    Joint computation is the ubiquitous scenario in which a computer is presented with not one, but many computational tasks to perform. A fundamental question arises: when can we cleverly combine computations, to perform them ...
  • Cai, Yang, Ph. D. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    We prove a generalization of von Neumann's minmax theorem to the class of separable multiplayer zero-sum games, introduced in [Bregman and Fokin 1998]. These games are polymatrix-that is, graphical games in which every ...
  • Tzamos, Christos (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    Myerson's seminal work provides a computationally efficient revenue-optimal auction for selling one item to multiple bidders. Generalizing this work to selling multiple items at once has been a central question in economics ...
  • Lai, Katherine Jane (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    In this thesis, we investigate various interpretations of the Union-Split-Find problem, an extension of the classic Union-Find problem. In the Union-Split Find problem, we maintain disjoint sets of ordered elements subject ...
  • Ziegler, Ronald J., 1965- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    Automobiles are complex products. High product complexity drives high levels of design and process complexity and complicatedness. This thesis attempts to reduce complicatedness in the automotive vehicle design and development ...
  • Klivans, Adam R (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2002)
    This thesis details a new vantage point for attacking longstanding problems in machine learning. We use tools from computational complexity theory to make progress on problems from computational learning theory. Our methods ...
  • Lee, Tae-Sik, 1974- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2003)
    During the last couple of decades, the term complexity has been commonly found in use in many fields of science, sometimes as a measurable quantity with a rigorous but narrow definition and other times as merely an ad hoc ...
  • Marticello, Daniel Nicholas, Jr (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    Joseph Tainter's theory of societal collapse is applied in an examination of the U.S. Air Force's aircraft acquisition system in order to gain insight into the enterprise's lagging performance. Theories of collapse at both ...
  • Myers, Elise McKenna (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    Stromatolites, columnar rock-like structures, are potentially some of the oldest, microbially mediated fossils visible in the rock record; if biogenesis is able to be confirmed for these ancient stromatolites, some being ...
  • Gaige, Terry A. (Terry Alden), 1981- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    The complex array of fiber orientations exhibited by muscles such as the tongue, esophagus, and heart, enable function beyond basic pulling. Among other things, the presence of crossing geometry adds the ability to push ...
  • Kaup, Thomas (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1993)
    Whereas the separation of work from domestic life introduced during the industrial revolution has brought enormous increases in productivity through the division of labor, the cultural cost of this fracture for society is ...
  • Foo, Catherine, 1980- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2003)
  • Faranca, Anthony G. (Anthony Gilbert), 1971- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
    E-commerce is generally thought of as a world without walls. Although a computer monitor may replace a storefront window, the products that are purchased online have to be distributed from a brick and mortar warehouse. ...
  • Coslovsky, Salo Vinocur (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    This dissertation bridges the fields of international development, legal sociology, and organizational behavior to examine how Brazilian prosecutors enforce labor and environmental laws. Typically, the enforcement of ...
