  • Turlington, Ralph Donald, III (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    DNA synthesis technologies are advancing at exponential rates, with production of ever longer, more complex, and less expensive sequences of double stranded DNA. This has fostered development of industrial scale design, ...
  • Dudnik, Sara A (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    Value-added processes that bear associated wait times occur frequently during production manufacturing and increase cycle time. Since the wait time is integral to the value created by the process, it can be difficult to ...
  • Larson, David (David William) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    Dramatically increasing the hourly workforce at a rapid pace to support accelerated product demand in an aircraft manufacturing facility in a short amount of time resulted in: (1) increased rework, and (2) increased part ...
  • Shetty, Dipak (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
  • Sawant, Samir (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    Mobile application ('apps') development is a recent pandemic phenomenon; companies that are not associated with mobile technologies are noticing it and want to develop their own mobile apps. However, these companies do not ...
  • Yap, Xiang Ling (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    New technologies such as distributed generation and electric vehicles are connecting to the electricity distribution grid, a regulated natural monopoly. Existing regulatory schemes were not designed for these new technologies ...
  • Quezada Gomez, Juan Manuel (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    The automobile innovation transformed the human life style ever since its introduction to the public, and for over the last one hundred years incumbent technologies have been adopted to improve its performance characteristics. ...
  • London, Brian (Brian N.) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    The development of increasingly complex, innovative systems under greater constraints has been the trend over the past several decades. In order to be successful, organizations must develop products that meet customer needs ...
  • Schrang, Oliver Stiles (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    As the commoditization of the PC market erodes product margins, increasing emphasis is placed on cost optimization within the supply chain. One critical component of this is the financial impact of inventory policies and ...
  • Saad, Fady M. (Fady Malak) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    In today's world startups are playing a key role to stimulate the economy, solve pressing problems and create fulfilling employment opportunities. However, the failure rate of startups in the US, one of the most prominent ...
  • Simaiakis, Ioannis (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    Taxiing aircraft contribute significantly to the fuel burn and emissions at airports. This thesis investigates the possibility of reducing fuel burn and emissions from surface operations through a reduction of the taxi ...
  • Ajemian, Stephen P (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
