  • Seidel, Scott B (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    Combat outposts (COPs) are small, well-protected bases from which soldiers reside and conduct operations from. Used extensively during the "Surge" in Iraq, COPs are usually established in populated areas and are prevalent ...
  • McAllister, Daniel B. (Daniel Brandford) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    We consider the problem of assigning a scarce number of interceptors to a wave of incoming atmospheric re-entry vehicles (RV). In this single wave, there is time to assign interceptors to a wave of incoming RVs, gain ...
  • Sasanuma, Katsunobu (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    Drivers in urban neighborhoods who cruise streets, seeking inexpensive on-street parking create a significant fraction of measured traffic congestion. The solution to this problem is to reduce the total traffic volume ...
  • Andersson, Kari (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2000)
    This thesis explores the benefits of increasing communication and collaboration between airlines and air traffic controllers during the arrival process at hub airports. In particular, this study estimates operational ...
  • Sheth, Mallory (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    Predicting outcomes for critically ill patients is a topic of considerable interest. The most widely used models utilize data from early in a patient's stay to predict risk of death. While research has shown that use of ...
  • Mundell, Lee Carter (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2016)
    The rapid growth of the availability of wearable biosensors has created the opportunity for using physiological signals to measure worker performance. An important question is how to use such signals to not just measure, ...
  • Rizzo, Ludovica (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    In the era of Big Data, online retailers have access to a large amount of data about their customers. This data can include demographic information, shopping carts, transactions and browsing history. In the last decade, ...
  • Crimmel, Brian A (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    The U.S. military considers Unmanned Underwater Vehicles (UUVs) a critical component of the future for two primary reasons - they are effective force multipliers and a significant risk-reducing agent. As the military's ...
  • Idris, Husni Rifat (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2001)
    The Departure Planner (DP) is a concept for a decision-aiding tool that is aimed at improving the performance of departure operations at major congested airports. In order to support the development of DP tools and other ...
  • Limpaitoon, Tanachai (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    In this thesis we consider a multi-period truckload pick-up and delivery problem dealing with real-time requests over a finite time horizon. We introduce the notion of postponement of requests, whereby the company can ...
  • Tziligakis, Constantine Nikolaos (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1999)
  • Shioda, Romy, 1977- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2002)
    We develop two classes of optimization models in order to maximize revenue in a restaurant, while controlling average waiting time as well as perceived fairness, that may violate the first-come-first-serve (FCFS) rule. In ...
  • 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 ...
