  • 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 ...

    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)
    Uneaten food, whether by patients or unserved, is considered food waste. Plate waste is the remaining, uneaten food after being served to patients in the hospital. The uneaten food has a cascading environmental impact on ...
  • The role of information usage in a retail supply chain: a causal data mining and analytical modeling approach 

    Sener, Abdurrezzak; Barut, Mehmet; Oztekin, Asil; Avcilar, Mutlu Yuksel; Yildirim, Mehmet Bayram (Elsevier, 2019-06)
    This study utilizes both a resource-based view and organizational learning theory to present the need to distinguish information sharing from information usage. Our main research aim was to investigate the mediating role ...
  • Automated scanning techniques using UR5 

    Lopez-Hawa, Homar; VanPelt, Alexander; Emmanuel, Suveen; Yihun, Yimesker S. (Hindawi, 2019-02-03)
    This study seeks to advance technologies pertaining to integration of low-cost collaborative robots to perform scanning operations where moderate accuracy is needed. Part inspection is an almost universal aspect of ...
  • Dynamic thermal softening behavior of additive materials for hybrid manufacturing 

    Mates, Steven P.; Stoudt, Mark R.; Jacob, Gregor; Moscoso-Kingsley, Wilfredo; Madhavan, Viswanathan (Springer, Cham, 2018)
    Hybrid manufacturing involves both additive and subtractive (machining) processes to achieve the final product. Substantial differences can exist between the mechanical behavior of additively as-built materials compared ...
  • The flow stress of AM IN 625 under conditions of high strain and strain rate 

    Ananda-Kumar, Rajesh; Lopez-Hawa, Homar; Moscoso-Kingsley, Wilfredo; Madhavan, Viswanathan (Springer, Cham, 2019)
    Additively manufactured (AM) nickel superalloy (In 625) with known processing history and quasi-static properties has been investigated under extreme strains up to about 100% and strain rate up to about 10 4 /s by machining. ...
  • A new mixture cure model under competing risks to score online consumer loans 

    Zhang, Nailong; Yang, Qingyu; Kelleher, Aidan; Si, Wujun (Routledge, 2019-01-18)
    In credit scoring, survival analysis models have been widely applied to answer the question as to whether and when an applicant would default. In this paper, we propose a novel mixture cure proportional hazards model under ...
  • Effective cost minimization strategy and an optimization model of a reliable global supply chain system 

    Daehy, Yahya H.; Krishnan, Krishna K.; Alsaadi, Ahmed K.; Alghamdi, Saleh Y. (Growing Science, 2019)
    Attributable to high competition in global manufacturing market and outsourcing suppliers, many supply chain systems have become more complex and faced with high risks and low performance. Many financial losses and failures ...
