  • Accounting for patient heterogeneity in nurse staffing using a queueing-theory approach 

    Eimanzadeh, Parisa; Gloede, Heather; Soule, Joyce; Salari, Ehsan (Taylor & Francis, 2018-06-30)
    Evidence from observational studies suggests that inadequate nurse staffing in hospitals and heavy nurse workload may compromise patient safety and quality of care. There are recommended minimum nurse-to-patient ratios for ...
  • The interplay of strategic orientations and their influence on sme performance 

    Pett, Timothy L.; Francis, John D.; Wolff, James (Middle Tennessee State University, 2019-10-19)
    This paper examines the role that learning orientation plays with respect to entrepreneurial orientation, market orientation, and, ultimately, the performance of small and medium-sized enterprises SMEs. Previous research ...
  • Prediction of airline delays based on machine learning algorithms 

    Dand, Alok; Saeed, Khawaja A.; Yildirim, Mehmet Bayram (Association for Information Systems, 2019)
    Every year around 20% of all flights are delayed or canceled. The costs of these events to the airline companies and passengers are in billions of dollars each year. According to a report published in 2010 by UC Berkeley, ...

    Additively manufactured nickel superalloy (IN 625) has gained popularity as an alternative to produce high value products of complex geometries for high strength applications under high temperature and corrosive environments. ...
  • Intra-fraction motion prediction in MRI-guided radiation therapy using Markov processes 

    Mirzapour, Azam; Mazur, Thomas R.; Sharp, Gregory; Salari, Ehsan (NLM (Medline), 2019-09-23)
    Internal organ motion during radiation delivery may lead to underdosing of cancer cells or overdosing of normal tissue, potentially causing treatment failure or normal-tissue toxicity. Organ motion is of particular concern ...
  • Augmenting learning components for safety in resource constrained autonomous robots 

    Ramakrishna, Shreyas; Dubey, Abhishek; Burruss, Matthew P.; Hartsell, Charles; Mahadevan, Nagabhushan; Nannapaneni, Saideep; Laszka, Aron; Karsai, Gabor (IEEE, 2019-05)
    Learning enabled components (LECs) trained using data-driven algorithms are increasingly being used in autonomous robots commonly found in factories, hospitals, and educational laboratories. However, these LECs do not ...
  • Rehabilitation engineering 

    Smith, Raymond V.; Leslie, John H. (CRC Press, 1990)
    The purpose of this handbook is to bring together information on the special devices and associated systems which have been developed to assist the handicapped in living and vocational pursuits and in clinical use. This ...
  • Towards demand-oriented flexible rerouting of public transit under uncertainty 

    Nannapaneni, Saideep; Dubey, Abhishek (Association for Computing Machinery, Inc., 2019-04-15)
    This paper proposes a flexible rerouting strategy for the public transit to accommodate the spatiooral variation in the travel demand. Transit routes are typically static in nature, i.e., the buses serve well-defined routes; ...
  • Role of temperature in quanta mechanisms of facilitation in the frog neuromuscular junction 

    Yeghiazarian, Lilit; Kaiser, Mark J. (Springer-Verlag, 1998-08)
    The results of computer simulations on the Double Barrier Synapse (DBS) model are presented which quantify the relationship between the synapse parameters and the quanta transfer process. The DBS model is applicable ...
  • Markov model of sex-linked recessive trait transmission 

    Yeghiazarian, Lilit; Kaiser, Mark J. (Pergamon Press, 1999-04-1)
    A Markov model of sex-linked recessive trait transmission is developed with genotypes viewed as the states of the transmission process and the changes of generations considered to occur at discrete moments of time. Gender ...
  • The n-point and six-partite point of a convex polygon 

    Kaiser, Mark J. (Pergamon Press, 2000-08-1)
    The n-point of a planar convex polygon is defined through a geometric optimization problem associated with a 'balance' functional and wedge set. The balance functional provides a measure of the imbalance of the polygon ...
  • Scheduling of multi-spindle CNC gantry mills 

    Cheraghi, S. Hossein; Waram, Vish (Springer New York LLC, 2002-01-8)
    This paper considers the problem of scheduling a multi-spindle CNC gantry mill. Multiple spindle gantry mills are characterized by their ability to process multiple numbers of parts simultaneously and that they allow a ...
  • Green eggs and ham 

    Kaiser, Mark J.; Cheraghi, S. Hossein (Elsevier Ltd, 1997-08-1)
    A dish of ham and eggs is required to be divided equally by a single straight knife cut. A constructive solution procedure is described through the introduction of a balance functional and a geometric optimization problem. ...
  • Selecting a multicriteria inventory classification model to improve customer order fill rate 

    Iqbal, Qamar; Malzahn, Don; Whitman, Lawrence E. (Hindawi Limited, 2017-04-5)
    Multicriteria models have been proposed for inventory classification in previous studies. However, it is important to make a decision when a particular multicriteria inventory classification model should be preferred over ...
  • Food waste in hospitals: review 

    Alshqaqeeq, Fadhel Y.; Twomey, Janet M.; Overcash, Michael (Inderscience Enterprises Ltd., 2019-03-12)
