T paper considers a multicomponent, multiproduct periodic-review assemble-to-order (ATO) system that uses an independent base-stock policy for inventory replenishment. Product demands in each period are integer-valued correlated random variables, with each product being assembled from multiple units of a subset of components. The system quotes a(More)

We study a multicomponent, multiproduct production and inventory system in which individual components are made to stock but final products are assembled to customer orders. Each component is produced by an independent production facility with finite capacity, and the component inventory is controlled by an independent base-stock policy. For any given(More)
Malaria is one of the major parasitic diseases in China. During the past 40 years, large scale malaria control activities were conducted in the country relying on primary health care nets and community participation. The control of malaria was implemented according to the principles of adopting integrated measures and repeated practices which are(More)
We consider an assemble-to-order (ATO) system: Components are made to stock by production facilities with finite capacities, and final products are assembled only in response to customers’ orders. The key performance measures in this system, such as order fill rates, involve evaluation of multivariate probability distributions, which is computationally(More)
In this paper, we consider a model of social learning in a population of myopic, memoryless agents. The agents are placed on integer points on an infinite line. Each period, they perform experiments with one of two technologies, then each observes the outcomes and technology choices of the two adjacent agents as well as his own outcome. Two learning rules(More)
In this paper, we propose a new greedy-like heuristic method, which is primarily intended for the general MDKP, but proves itself effective also for the 0-1 MDKP. Our heuristic differs from the existing greedy-like heuristics in two aspects. First, existing heuristics rely on each item’s aggregate consumption of resources to make item selection decisions,(More)
