  • Magee, Christopher L. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Engineering Systems Division, 2003-06)
    This paper reports a personal assessment of the readiness of new B.S. level engineering graduates to practice engineering immediately upon graduation. This assessment when reinforced by significant prior work motivates a ...
  • Sakhrani, Vivek A. (Vivek Ashok) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    This thesis frames design in infrastructure public-private partnerships (P3s) as an exercise in negotiated collaboration. I investigate whether the collaborative design process in P3s can systematically deliver the benefits ...
  • Gupta, Hitesh (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    With the increasing complexities in supply chains and increasing global trade, integrated supply chain network design is utilized by the firms in order to reduce the overall cost while meeting the customer demand with ...
  • Scott, Shane P. (Shane Paul) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    Under a charter from the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the author participated in a study of the military's behavioral health system for the purpose of determining the means and effectiveness of that system for ...
  • Kelic, Andjelka, 1972- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    A system dynamics model is developed and run to study the adoption of fiber-to-the-home as a residential broadband technology. Communities that currently do not have broadband in the United States are modeled. This case ...
  • Smith, Sally A. (Sally Amanda) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    From June to December 2011, the impact of rapid international expansion on the Global Supply Chain organization at Amgen - one of the world's leading human therapeutics companies in the biotechnology industry - was ...
  • Leveson, Nancy G. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Engineering Systems Division, 2002-05)
    New technology is making fundamental changes in the etiology of accidents and is creating a need for changes in the explanatory mechanisms used. We need better and less subjective understanding of why accidents occur and ...
  • Srivali, Nahathai (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    Abstract The vision of the Operations Technology Group at Amgen is to enable a robust pipeline through focused and efficient operations research studies. Process design is traditionally developed by performing experiments, ...
  • Wang, Zhiyong, S.M. Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Engineering Systems Division (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    Although the concepts of sustainable building have been widely accepted in the market, there are unavoidable challenges toward widespread acceptance and long-term practice. Crossing green building development, there is ...
  • Chen, Guineng; Shen, Yu; Martinez, Luis Miguel; de Abreu e Silva, Joao (Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Engineering Systems Division, 2012-03)
    This paper presents a comprehensive framework for modeling the impacts of large-scale transport infrastructure which have the potential to fundamentally alter the spatial interaction properties of regions, producing ...
  • Ranganath, Naveen Chandra (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    Over the last fifty years, diffusion researchers have sought to explain why the rate of adoption of an innovation varies over time. Some innovations are adopted quickly as compared to others, which take decades for adoption. ...
  • Enos, James R. (James Robert) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    This thesis utilizes eight Enterprise Architecture views to analyze the U.S. Army Aviation Center of Excellence's Flight School XXI Enterprise and provides recommendations to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of ...
  • Whitney, Daniel E. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Engineering Systems Division, 2009-10)
    Percolation or cascades on random networks are typically analyzed using generating functions. This approach requires that the network be assumed infinite and weakly connected. These assumptions are not obeyed by real or ...
  • Smith, Ariadne G. (Ariadne Geneviève) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    This thesis explores the application of open design to the process of developing physical products. Open design is a type of decentralized innovation that is derived from applying principles of open source software and ...
  • Baldwin, Alexander (Alexander Lee); Shin, Jaesung (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    Forecasting demand for limited-life cycle products is essentially projecting an arc trend of demand growth and decline over a relatively short time horizon. When planning for a new limited-life product, many marketing and ...
