Modular Crates – A Holistic Design Approach For Optimizing Cube Size In Industrial Packaging, Marshal Louie, Kumar B 2018 Department of Printing Technology, College of Engineering, Guindy Campus, Anna University, Chennai

Modular Crates – A Holistic Design Approach For Optimizing Cube Size In Industrial Packaging, Marshal Louie, Kumar B

Journal of Applied Packaging Research

Global market is a field where all industries strive to provide personalized product for every customer demand in order to compete with their competitors in the business battlefield. Product personalization varies with customer to customer which increases the product variety. When the product size variability is vast, producing packages for every individual product is not only difficult but also increases the design time, production time, total manufacturing cost and inventory cost. For the present scenario, Industrial packages does not opt customizability for variable product sizes. Customized package for personalized product is achievable only by redesigning the existing distribution package with ...


Robust Allocation Of Funds For Nonstructural Flood Risk Mitigation In Coastal Louisiana, Simón Gómez Sierra, David R. Johnson, Matthew P. Shisler, Zachariah T. Richardson 2018 Universidad de Los Andes - Colombia

Robust Allocation Of Funds For Nonstructural Flood Risk Mitigation In Coastal Louisiana, Simón Gómez Sierra, David R. Johnson, Matthew P. Shisler, Zachariah T. Richardson

The Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) Symposium

Coastal Louisiana is a critical economic, ecological and cultural asset, acting as a major hub for waterborne commerce, fisheries, and the petrochemical industry, and also as one of the world’s unique wetlands. Unfortunately, this rich environment is in great danger from the threat of hurricanes and storm surge flooding. Direct economic losses are estimated to average $2.7 billion per year under current conditions, and this could increase to $12 billion a year, or more, within 50 years if nothing is done. To prevent this catastrophe, Louisiana has developed a Comprehensive Master Plan for a Sustainable Coast, which plans ...


Efvs Effects On Pilot Performance, Michael Campbell, Nsikak Udo-Imeh, Steven J. Landry 2018 Purdue University

Efvs Effects On Pilot Performance, Michael Campbell, Nsikak Udo-Imeh, Steven J. Landry

The Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) Symposium

Flight tests have been conducted at Purdue University using a computer-based flying simulator in an attempt to determine and measure the effects of Enhanced Flight Vision Systems (EFVS) on the performance of pilots during landing. Knowledge of these effects could help guide future design and implementation of EFVS in modern commercial aircraft, and further increase pilots’ ability to control the aircraft in low-visibility conditions. The problem that has faced researchers in the past has revolved around the difficulty in interpreting the data which is generated by these tests. The difficulty in making a generalized conclusion based on the large amount ...


Configuring Traditional Multi-Dock, Unit-Load Warehouses, Mahmut Tutam 2018 University of Arkansas, Fayetteville

Configuring Traditional Multi-Dock, Unit-Load Warehouses, Mahmut Tutam

Theses and Dissertations

The development of expected-distance formulas for multi-dock-door, unit-load warehouse configurations is the focus of the dissertation. From formulations derived, the width-to-depth ratios minimizing expected distances are obtained for rectangle-shaped, unit-load warehouse configurations. Partitioning the storage region in the warehouse into three classes, the performance of a multi-dock-door, unit-load warehouse is studied when storage regions can be either rectangle-shaped or contour-line-shaped. Our first contribution is the development of formulas for expected distance traveled in storing and retrieving unit loads in a rectangle-shaped warehouse having multiple dock doors along one warehouse wall and storage racks aligned perpendicular to that wall. Two formulations ...


Optimization Methods For Maintaining Complex Systems, Khatereh Ahadi 2018 University of Arkansas, Fayetteville

Optimization Methods For Maintaining Complex Systems, Khatereh Ahadi

Theses and Dissertations

My dissertation research focuses on developing and applying methodologies for optimizing the maintenance of complex systems. The main goal of these methodologies is minimizing maintenance and failure cost and maximizing the economic output of the systems. In Chapter 1, we develop a stochastic programming model to select a budget-limited subset of maintenance dredging projects to maximize the expected commodity tonnage that can be transported through the inland waterway system. The inland navigation system ensures cost-effective marine transportation throughout many portions of the country and is therefore vital to the U.S. economy. The uncertainty in these processes creates a challenging ...


Modeling And Solution Approaches For Non-Traditional Network Flow Problems With Complicating Constraints, Negin Enayaty Ahangar 2018 University of Arkansas, Fayetteville

Modeling And Solution Approaches For Non-Traditional Network Flow Problems With Complicating Constraints, Negin Enayaty Ahangar

Theses and Dissertations

In this dissertation, we model three network-based optimization problems. Chapter 2 addresses the question of what the operation plan should be for interdependent infrastructure systems in resource-constrained environments so that they collectively operate at the highest level. We develop a network-based operation model of these systems that accounts for interdependencies among them. To solve this large-scale model, a solution approach is proposed that relatively quickly generates high-quality solutions to the problem.

Chapter 3 presents a routing model for a single train within a railyard with the objective of minimizing the total length traveled by train. The difference between this problem ...


A Service System With On-Demand Agents, Stochastic Gradient Algorithms And The Sarah Algorithm, Lam Nguyen 2018 Lehigh University

A Service System With On-Demand Agents, Stochastic Gradient Algorithms And The Sarah Algorithm, Lam Nguyen

Theses and Dissertations

We consider a system, where a random flow of customers is served by agents invited on-demand. Each invited agent arrives into the system after a random time, and leaves it with some probability after each service completion. Customers and/or agents may be impatient. The objective is to design a real-time adaptive invitation scheme that minimizes customer and agent waiting times.We study some aspects of the SGD method with a fixed, large learning rate and propose a novel assumption of the objective function, under which this method has improved convergence rates. We also propose a convergence analysis of SGD ...
