This paper considers the outpatient no-show problem faced by a rural free clinic located in the south-eastern United States. Using data mining and simulation techniques, we develop sequencing schemes for patients, in order to optimize a combination of performance measures used at the clinic. We utilize association rule mining (ARM) to build a model for(More)
A central design challenge facing network planners is how to select a cost-effective network configuration that can provide uninterrupted service despite edge failures. In this paper, we study the Survivable Network Design (SND) problem, a core model underlying the design of such resilient networks that incorporates complex cost and connectivity trade-offs.(More)
Using simulation, we compare three offline packing heuristics for adjustable-size bins, a problem derived from operating room scheduling, on 500 days of generated data using different cost structures. Unlike classical bin-packing studies, we found that next-fit-decreasing is the best performing method. Subject Areas: Simulation, Bin Packing, OR and(More)
Why projects are late” is a fundamental issue in theory and in practice. One well established explanation is that a project’s network structure can be a significant factor—the “fatter” or more parallel the project, the later the project completion. Herein we show that a lack of agility, which may frequently arise in projects when there are external(More)
