  • Zhi, Jianing (University of Alabama Libraries, 2016)
    This dissertation reports on three integrated supply chain problems that incorporate several key components of modern supply chains, including location, transportation, inventory, and customer selection. The first part of ...
  • 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 ...
  • Ishfaq, Rafay (University of Alabama Libraries, 2010)
    This research is motivated by the extraordinary increase in the use of intermodal shipments in recent years for both domestic and global movement of freight. Three mathematical models, which explore the dynamics of intermodal ...
  • 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 ...
  • Sarkar, Shuchismita (University of Alabama Libraries, 2019)
    The objective of cluster analysis is to find distinct groups of similar observations. There are many algorithms in literature that can perform this task and among them model based clustering is one of the most flexible ...
  • 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 ...
  • Palmer, Nathan Curtis (University of Alabama Libraries, 2009)
    It is important for every company to minimize its costs. This includes labor costs. We develop mathematical models that allow a company to minimize its labor costs by deciding from where to hire workers and the amount that ...
