    • Agents to the Rescue? 

      West, Patricia M.; Ariely, Dan; Bellman, Steve; Bradlow, Eric; Huber, Joel; e.a. (1999)
      The advent of electronic environments is bound to have profound effects on consumer decision making. While the exact nature of these influences is only partially known it is clear that consumers could benefit from ...
    • Analyzing Multiple Product Development Projects Based On Information and Resource Constraints 

      Yassine, Ali; Browning, Tyson (2002-09-17)
      Product development (PD) and engineering design processes are often characterized by the information flowing among activities. In PD, this flow forms a complex activity web—a process that can be viewed as a complex system. ...
    • Assessment of Rework Probabilities for Simulating Product Development Processes Using the Design Structure Matrix (DSM) 

      Yassine, Ali A.; Whitney, Daniel E.; Zambito, Tony (2001-09-09)
      This paper uses the Design Structure Matrix (DSM) to model and simulate the performance of development processes. Though the simulation is a powerful tool for analyzing process performance, its ability is limited by the ...
    • Do-It-Right-First-Time (Draft) Approach To Design Structure Matrix (DSM) Restructuring 

      Whitney, Daniel E.; Yassine, Ali A.; Lavine, Jerry; Zambito, Tony (2002-09-17)
      This paper argues, using two real-world applications from the automotive industry, that the biggest benefit of a Design Structure Matrix (DSM) model may come not from resequencing and partitioning, but rather from ...
    • Modeling Traffic Flow Emissions 

      Cappiello, Alessandra (2002-09-17)
      The main topic of this thesis is the development of light-duty vehicle dynamic emission models and their integration with dynamic traffic models. Combined, these models constitute fundamental components to support ...
    • Performance of Coupled Product Development Activities with a Deadline 

      Joglekar, Nitindra R.; Whitney, Daniel E.; Yassine, Ali A.; Eppinger, Steven D. (2002-09-17)
      This paper explores the performance of coupled development tasks subject to a deadline constraint by proposing a performance generation model (PGM). The goal of the PGM is to develop insights about optimal strategies ...
    • Precision Robot Calibration Using Kinematically Placed Inclinometers 

      Robertson, Alec P.; Slocum, Alexander; Willoughby, Patrick J. (2002-09-17)
      In the field of industrial robotics, many different calibration methods exist to reduce error in the robot system. Locating the manipulator home position is a common calibration technique, which can be divided into three ...
    • A Statistical Model of Vehicle Emissions and Fuel Consumption 

      Cappiello, Alessandra; Chabini, Ismail; Nam, Edward K.; Lue, Alessandro; Zeid, Maya Abou (2002-09-17)
      A number of vehicle emission models are overly simple, such as static speed-dependent models widely used in practice, and other models are sophisticated as to require excessive inputs and calculations, which can slow down ...
    • A Statistical Model of Vehicle Emissions and Fuel Consumption 

      Cappiello, Alessandra; Chabini, Ismail; Lue, Alessandro; Zeid, Maya Abou; Nam, Edward K. (2002-09-17)
      Many vehicle emission models are overly simple, such as the speed dependent models used widely, and other models are sufficiently complicated as to require excessive inputs and calculations, which can slow down computational ...
