  • 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 ...
  • Fast, Shannon M. (Shannon Marie) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    Epidemic trajectories and associated social responses vary widely between populations, with severe reactions sometimes observed. When confronted with fatal or novel pathogens, people exhibit a variety of behaviors from ...
  • Soldner, Mallory Jo (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    This research seeks to address potential "passenger-centric" modifications to the way that ground holding delays are allocated in Ground Delay Programs. The allocation of landing slots to arriving flights during time periods ...
  • Shenk, Kimberly N (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    Myocardial infarction is a derivative of heart disease that is a growing concern in the United States today. With heart disease becoming increasingly predominant, it is important to not only take steps toward preventing ...
  • Diwan, Sarvee (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    This thesis evaluates the performance of Dynamic Programming (DP) models as applied to airline Revenue Management (RM) compared to traditional Revenue Management models like EMSRb as DP models offer a theoretically attractive ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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, ...
