Optimization in Healthcare Delivery Modeling: Methods and Applications



Optimization of printed circuit board manufacturing: Integrated modeling and algorithms
Altinkemer, K; Kazaz, B; Köksalan, Mustafa Murat; Moskowitz, H (2000-07-16)
This paper focuses on an integrated optimization problem that is designed to improve productivity in printed circuit board (PCB) manufacturing. We examine the problems of allocating the components to feeders and sequencing the placement of these components on the PCBs, populated by a rotary head machine with surface mount technology. While previous research focuses on sequencing the placement and only considers this subproblem as part of an interrelated set of problems, we provide an integrated approach whi...
Optimization approaches for classification and feature selection using overlapping hyperboxes
Akbulut, Derya; Özdemirel, Nur Evin; İyigün, Cem; Department of Industrial Engineering (2019)
In this thesis, an optimization approach is proposed for the binary classification problem. A mixed integer programming (MIP) model formulation is used to generate hyperboxes as classifiers. The hyperboxes are determined by lower and upper bounds on the feature values, and overlapping of hyperboxes is allowed to reach a balance between misclassification and overfitting. For the test phase, distance-based heuristic algorithms are also developed to classify the overlap and uncovered samples that are not class...
Optimization techniques for nonconvex problems and optimum discrete transmit beamformer design /
Demir, Özlem Tuğfe; Tuncer, Temel Engin; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2014)
In this thesis, transmit beamformer design is investigated for single group multicast scenario. The problem is considered for both discrete and continuous case. The discrete problem is converted to a linear form in which there are both discrete and continuous variables. The resulting mixed integer linear programming problem is optimally solved with much lower computational complexity than brute force search. For practical reasons, robust version of the problem is also elaborated and solved with mixed intege...
Optimization algorithms for resource allocation problem of air tasking order preparation
Bayrak, Ahmet Engin; Polat, Faruk; Department of Computer Engineering (2010)
In recent years, evolving technology has provided a wide range of resources for Military forces. However, that wideness also caused resource management difficulties in combat missions. Air Tasking Order (ATO) is prepared for various missions of air combats in order to reach objectives by an optimized resource management. Considering combinatorial military aspects with dynamic objectives and various constraints; computer support became inevitable for optimizing the resource management in air force operations...
Weber, Gerhard Wilhelm; Kropat, Erik; Tezel, Aysun; Belen, Selma (2010-05-01)
In this paper we survey recent advances and mathematical foundations of regulatory networks. We explain their interdisciplinary implications with special regard to Operational Research and financial sciences and introduce the so-called eco-finance networks. These networks, originally developed in the context of modeling and prediction of gene-expression patterns, have proved to provide a conceptual framework for the modeling of dynamical systems with respect to errors and uncertainty as well as the influenc...
