  • Testa, Mariapaola (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    In the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) area, the production of numerical solid waste (MI\SW) increased by 32% between 1990 and 2011, exceeding 660 million tonnes in 2011; the world-wide ...
  • Yang, Lang, S.M. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    Increases in car ownership and usage have resulted in serious traffic congestion problems in many large cities worldwide. Innovative travel modes and services can play an important role in improving the efficiency and ...
  • Evans, Jane A. (Jane Amanda) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    With the globalization of culture and economic trade, it is increasingly important not only to detect outbreaks of infectious disease early, but also to anticipate the social response to the disease. In this thesis, we use ...
  • Messmacher, Eduardo B. (Eduardo Bernhart), 1972- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2000)
    Organizations perform work essentially through operations and projects. The characteristics of projects makes them extremely difficult to manage: their non repetitive nature discards the trial and error learning, while ...
  • Koepke, Corbin G. (Corbin Gene), 1977- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
    The United States Air Force's Air Mobility Command is responsible for creating a schedule and executing that schedule for a large-scale air mobility network that encompasses different mission areas. One of the mission areas ...
  • Jernigan, Nicholas R. (Nicholas Richard) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    In this paper we present a mixed integer optimization framework for modeling the shipment of goods between origin destination (O-D) pairs by vehicles of different types over a time-space network. The output of the model ...
  • Lepird, John R (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    Developed in the 1970's and 1980's, the Traffic Alert and Collision Avoidance System (TCAS) is the last safety net to prevent an aircraft mid-air collision. Although TCAS has been historically very effective, TCAS logic ...
  • Jang, Young Jae, 1974- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2001)
  • Achy-Brou, Aristide C. E., 1976- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2001)
    We consider a single product multistage serial inventory system with several installations, say N - I, ... , l. Installation N - I intakes exogenous supply of a single commodity. For i E {I, ... N - 2}, installation i is ...
  • Shah, Premal (Premal Y.) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    We consider in this thesis the problem of pricing American Put Options in a model-free framework where we do not make any assumptions about the price dynamics of the underlying except those implied by the no-arbitrage ...
  • Negron, Blair Ellen Leake (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    Unmanned aerial vehicles are being incorporated in an increasing variety of operations. To take full advantage of the vehicles, the plans for the operations should integrate each vehicle's capabilities when planning the ...
  • Cho, Philip Y (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    The effective scheduling of fighter aircraft maintenance in the Air Force is crucial to overall mission accomplishment. An effective maintenance scheduling policy maximizes the use of maintenance resources and aircraft ...
  • DeGregory, Keith W. (Keith William) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    More than four years after the end of major combat operations in the 2003 Iraq War, the United States military continues to sustain casualties at rates higher than those during the ground campaign. Combat service support ...
  • Marks, Christopher E. (Christopher Edward) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    Improvised Explosive Devices, or IEDs, have become a familiar and lethal part of contemporary military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan, producing more casualties than any other weapons system. One reason for their success ...
  • Hung, Benjamin W. K. (Benjamin Wei Kit) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    This work considers the nonlethal targeting assignment problem in counterinsurgency in Afghanistan, the problem of deciding on the people whom US forces should engage through outreach, negotiations, meetings, and other ...
  • Tardy, Raphaël, 1979- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    Major package delivery companies employ hundreds of thousands of people, generate billions of dollars in revenues and operate very large fleets of ground vehicles ranging from custom- built package cars to large tractors ...
  • Borjian Boroujeni, Setareh (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    With the continuous growth in international container shipping, many container terminals in maritime ports face congestion, particularly during peak hours of service, and when there is limited space in the storage area. ...
  • Rossillon, Kevin Joseph (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    In this thesis, we introduce and analyze models for air asset scheduling within a military theater. Specifically, we seek to create models that generate aircraft-specific schedules for Air Tasking Orders (ATOs) within a ...
  • Paynter, Jonathan L. (Jonathan Lawrence) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    A feature of many conflicts is the presence of a border that separates an area of on-going military operations from an area that the enemy can use permissively. This thesis considers analytic techniques for planning military ...
  • Foreman, John William (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    This thesis describes the design and implementation of an optimization model to manage inventory at Dell's American factories. Specifically, the model is a mixed integer program which makes routing decisions on incoming ...
