  • Mirghorbani, Seyedeh Saeideh (University of Alabama Libraries, 2018)
    Inefficient resource allocation and planning, expensive treatment costs, and low patient adherence to medication plans lead to undesired health outcomes in patients with chronic diseases. Operation research and stochastic ...
  • Dogru, Ali Kemal (University of Alabama Libraries, 2018)
    Naive clinical capacity planning, myopic appointment scheduling techniques, and unavoidable appointment interruptions lead to excessive patient waiting time, physician idle time and overtime, which result in inefficient ...
  • Fontem, Belleh (University of Alabama Libraries, 2014)
    The standard approach to mathematical optimization is to construct models which assume 1) perfect knowledge of the algebraic form of the optimizable function, and 2) that the problem parameters are not subject to external ...
  • Freeman, Nickolas Kirk (University of Alabama Libraries, 2014)
    The presence of uncertainty complicates planning decisions in all industries and sectors. In an operations context, failure to acknowledge and incorporate the unknowns in the decision-making process may lead to undesirable ...
  • Mercado Velasco, Gary Ricardo (University of Alabama Libraries, 2012)
    Parametric control charts are very attractive and have been used in the industry for a very long time. However, in many applications the underlying process distribution is not known sufficiently to assume a specific ...
  • Capar, Ibrahim (University of Alabama Libraries, 2016)
    Traditional optimization models, whether classified as deterministic or stochastic, require problem related parameters to be known with certainty or according to a probability distribution. However, in many real life ...
  • Firouz, Mohammad Firouz (University of Alabama Libraries, 2016)
    This dissertation focuses on two contributions in supply chain management when there is a risk of disruptions. The first contribution investigates the supply chain network design of a consumable product with risks imposed ...
  • Ballard, Marcus Alan (University of Alabama Libraries, 2018)
    A network consists of vertices and edges that connect the vertices. A network is clustered by assigning each of the N vertices to one of k groups, usually in order to optimize a given objective function. This dissertation ...
  • Li, Rong (University of Alabama Libraries, 2012)
    Routing related costs constitute a significant portion of the overall logistics costs in most service industries. Private companies are continuously striving to reduce their vehicle routing costs to maintain a better ...
