  • Cardin, Michel-Alexandre, 1979- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    This thesis proposes a practical approach to defining flexible design and development strategies for maximizing the expected value of engineering systems. Specifically, the approach deals with the fact that it is generally ...
  • Buscher, Stephanie Ann; Poyato Ayuso, Ángel (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    Natural disasters such as the earthquake and subsequent tsunami that hit Japan in 2011 can have catastrophic effects on businesses. This type of unexpected event can cause millions of dollars in damages, lost sales and can ...
  • Ranjan, Manya (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    Capturing CO2 from air, referred to as Air Capture, is being proposed as a viable climate change mitigation technology. The two major benefits of air capture, reported in literature, are that it allows us to reduce the ...
  • Latner, Avi; Valerdi, Ricardo (Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Engineering Systems Division, 2011-03)
    This paper provides an industry case study for measuring the performance of software as a service (SaaS) product features in order to prioritize development efforts. The case is based on empirical data from HubSpot and it ...
  • Latner, Avi (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    Software as a Service (SaaS) delivery model has become widespread. This deployment model changes the economics of software delivery but also has an impact on development. Releasing updates to customers is immediate and the ...
  • Weir, Tristan John (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    Emergency responders have suffered from a lack of cross-agency radio communications for the past three decades. After numerous firefighters died in the terrorist attacks of September 11, partially due to a lack of ...
  • Spead, Benjamin, 1978- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
    This thesis presents lessons from the development of an on-line, web-based feedback system and preliminary analysis of the socio-technical interactions associated with the specification, design and use of this system. The ...
  • O'Keefe, Samantha F (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    Safe drinking water is essential for human survival, yet it is unavailable to over 1 billion of the world's people living in poverty (World Bank, 2009). The current methods used to identify drinking water sources are ...
  • Sui, Xiaodi (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    Li & Fung is the leading consumer goods design, development, sourcing and logistics company for global retailers and brands. Its networks cover over 15,000 suppliers and 300 offices and distribution centers in 40 economies ...
  • Llussa, Fernanda (Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Engineering Systems Division, 2009-10)
    Female entrepreneurs are much less frequent than male entrepreneurs. In this paper we investigate a possible culprit: access to financial services. We use a dataset with entrepreneurship rates by opportunity and by need ...
  • Dreher, Jonathan J. (Jonathan Jacob) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    The convergence of the information age with an improved understanding of the effects humans have on the environment provides exciting new opportunities to improve our impact on the world. Though modem companies collect and ...
  • Balasubramaniam, Anitha (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    Product design and development is a complex process that involves extensive engineering considerations as well as management decisions based on the overall vision for the product. Traditionally, most decision making in ...
  • Reddy, Harry, 1963- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    The banking industry is consolidating to streamline its operations through mergers and acquisitions, and is adopting new technologies to develop innovative products and services, thereby achieving both economies of scale ...

  • Sowell, Jesse H., II (Jesse Horton) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    This inquiry started with the simple question, "Who manages the Internet infrastructure and how?" Since, this question evolved into an evaluation of the routing system and the institutions that manage it. This institutional ...
  • Broniatowski, David A.; Moses, Joel (Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Engineering Systems Division, 2014-03)
    System structure is a key determinant of system behavior. There is a particularly strong link between a system’s structure and its flexibility – it’s capacity to respond to changes. Often, adding flexibility entails adding ...
  • Ressler, Kyle T. (Kyle Thomas) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    This thesis documents the potential value of using flexible design to implement Major League Ballparks (MLBP). Credible evidence suggests that most ballparks were designed to fixed specifications that do not facilitate ...
