Shaping Watersheds Through Augmented Reality, Emma Gallegos Apr 2017

Shaping Watersheds Through Augmented Reality, Emma Gallegos

Symposium on Undergraduate Research and Creative Expression

Finding new ways to keep people interested in learning has always been a challenge. The augmented reality sandbox has the potential to keep the spirit of learning alive! By using an IR sensor, a projector and a sandbox, learning takes on a new shape. The sensors read movement and depth of sand in a 3' x 4' sandbox and a project lays a color out on top to indicate depth. The technology also has the ability to simulate rainfall where the "rain" actually looks and functions like water. Using this to help students of all ages and grades learn more ...


Optimization Of A Mixed-Model Assembly Sequencing, Enrique Alameda Basora Apr 2017

Optimization Of A Mixed-Model Assembly Sequencing, Enrique Alameda Basora

Symposium on Undergraduate Research and Creative Expression

In manufacturing assembly facilities, the lack of efficient and effective shop floor communication creates an environment where logistics and quality problems occur daily and take longer than necessary to resolve. Although Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems have been developed and implemented to prevent these types of problems, they are not able to react quickly to unforeseen events such as part shortages. This work focuses on creating a mixed-model assembly sequencing optimization formulation that can be solved quickly to minimize the total earliness and lateness when delivering a finished product to downstream operations or customers. Previous research on mixed-model assembly sequencing ...

A Machine Learning Approach To Post-Market Surveillance Of Medical Devices, Jonathan Bates, Shu-Xia Li, Craig Parzynski, Ronald Coifman, Harlan Krumholz, Joseph Ross

Yale Day of Data

Post-market surveillance is a collection of processes and activities used by product manufacturers and regulators, such as the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to monitor the safety and effectiveness of medical devices once they are available for use “on the market”. These activities are designed to generate information to identify poorly performing devices and other safety problems, accurately characterize real-world device performance and clinical outcomes, and facilitate the development of new devices, or new uses for existing devices. Typically, a device is monitored by comparing adverse events in the exposed population to a matched unexposed population. This research ...

Rethinking Advising: Developing A Proactive Culture To Improve Retention, Amber Settle, John Glatz Oct 2011

Rethinking Advising: Developing A Proactive Culture To Improve Retention, Amber Settle, John Glatz

Amber Settle

In 2009 DePaul University’s College of Computing and Digital Media (DePaul CDM) discovered a significant lag in undergraduate retention rates as well as four, five and six-year graduation rates as compared to other major colleges at the university. DePaul CDM’s investment in online student service resources had over time caused the unintentional reinvention of the college advising office into one that supported a very limited number of students, focusing primarily on students either in academic distress or students nearing graduation. 
In an effort to modify the advising culture at DePaul CDM into a more proactive one, a strategic ...

Demystifying The Legend Of Resistance To Change, Hamid Tahbaz Tavakoli, Nader Ale Ebrahim, Arash Golnam

Nader Ale Ebrahim

Nothing is permanent except change. Many authors stress that the reason for the failure of many change initiatives can be found in resistance to change. Resistance to change introduces costs and delays into the change process that are difficult to anticipate but must be taken into consideration. Undoubtedly the resistance to change is key topic in change management and should be seriously considered to help the organization achieve advantages of the transformation. Considering the importance of resistance to change, this paper aims to delve deeper in this field through theoretical exposition of the concept, elaborating more on the literature involving ...


Using Agent Based Simulation And Game Theory Analysis To Study Information Sharing In Organizations – The Infoscape, Richard Donald Jolly, Wayne W. Wakeland Jan 2008

Using Agent Based Simulation And Game Theory Analysis To Study Information Sharing In Organizations – The Infoscape, Richard Donald Jolly, Wayne W. Wakeland

Systems Science Faculty Publications and Presentations

Information sharing in organizations, especially the impact of sharing freely versus not sharing, was studied using game theory and agent based simulation. A game theoretic analysis was performed, and Netlogo simulations were carried out wherein some agents hoarded information while others shared information. As expected, sharing was found to greatly increase the overall amount of information within the organization. Unexpectedly, agents who share acquire more information than hoarders. This is due to the synergy that develops between groups of agents who are sharing with each other. The density of the agents is important-as the density increases, the probability increases that ...
