  • Shioda, Romy, 1977- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2002)
  • Agbokou, Claudine Biova, 1979- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
    Major airlines aim to generate schedules that maximize profit potential and satisfy constraints involving flight schedule design, fleet assignment, aircraft maintenance routing and crew scheduling. Almost all aircraft and ...
  • Marla, Lavanya (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    We consider large-scale, network-based, resource allocation problems under uncertainty, with specific focus on the class of problems referred to as multi-commodity flow problems with time-windows. These problems are at the ...
  • Bryant, Corban Harrell (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    In this thesis. we introduce and analyze methods of creating theater-level robust mission plans for Effects Based Operations (EBO) of teams of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), and propose methods of effectively presenting ...
  • Frost, Emily Anne (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    In this thesis, I design and implement a novel method of schedule and path selection between predetermined waypoints for unmanned underwater vehicles under uncertainty. The problem is first formulated as a mixed-integer ...
  • Culver, David M. (David Martin) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    This thesis considers the tactical reconnaissance asset allocation problem in military operations. Specifically this thesis presents methods to optimize, under uncertain conditions, tactical reconnaissance asset allocation ...
  • Cates, Jacob Roy (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    As our technology continues to increase, our military wishes to reduce the risk service members endure by using unmanned vehicles. These unmanned vehicles will, over time, become more independent and trustworthy in our ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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)
  • Boyer, Christopher A. (Christopher Andrew) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    The emergence of less restricted fare structures in the airline industry reduced the capability of airlines to segment demand through restrictions such as Saturday night minimum stay, advance purchase, non-refundability, ...
  • Wike, Carl E., 1948- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1999)
  • Jeffreys, Christopher G. (Christopher Grey), 1979- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
    Stem (cell research is one of the most promising and cutting-edge fields i the miedical sciences. It is believed that this innovative research will lead to life-saving treatments in the coming years. As part of their work, ...
  • Parandehgheibi, Marzieh (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    We consider the problem of protection in multilayer networks. In single-layer net- works, a pair of disjoint paths can be used to provide protection for a source-destination pair. However, this approach cannot be directly ...
  • Alighanbari, Mehdi, 1976- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
    For many vehicles, obstacles, and targets, coordination of a fleet of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) is a very complicated optimization problem, and the computation time typically increases very rapidly with the problem ...
  • Hanowsky, Michael John (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    A prototype tool was developed to support the planning of ground delay programs (GDPs) under uncertainty. Planned hours in advance, GDPs are subject to significant arrival capacity uncertainty, which reduces their efficacy ...
  • Gupta, Shubham, Ph. D. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    This thesis is motivated by the desire to estimate air traffic delays at airports under a range of assumptions about the predictability of (a) inter-arrival times of demands (arrivals and departures) and (b) service times ...
  • Murphy, Maurice D (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    This thesis explores how operations research methods can be applied in the emergency response community by looking at two recent tropical storm disasters; tropical cyclone Yemyin in Pakistan, June 2007 and super typhoon ...
  • Thomer, Joseph L. (Joseph Louis) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    By combining the strengths of human and computers, Human Machine Collaborative Decision Making has been shown to generate higher quality solutions in less time than conventional computerized methods. In many cases, it is ...
  • Sakamoto, Philemon (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    With the continued development of high endurance Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) and Unmanned Combat Aerial Vehicles (UCAV) that are capable of performing autonomous fiunctions across the spectrum of military operations, ...
