Title:A Kaizen Approach to Food Safety [electronic resource] : Quality Management in the Value Chain from Wheat to Bread
Author(s): Victoria Hill
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This book provides a Management Science approach to quality management in food production. Aspects of food quality, product conformance and reliability/food safety are examined, starting with wheat and ending with its value chaintransformation into b read. Protein qualities that influence glycemic index levels in bread are used to compare the value chains of France and the US. With Kaizen models the book shows how changes in these characteristics are the resultof management decisions made by the wheat growers in response to government policy and industry strategy. Lastly, it provides step-by-step instructions on how to apply kaizen methodology and Deming's work on quality improvement to makethe HACCPs (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points) in f ood safety systems more robust

Title:Integrating Routing Decisions in Public Transportation Problems [electronic resource]
Author(s): Marie E Schmidt
Date:2014
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This book treats three planning problems arising in public railway transportation planning: line planning, timetabling, and delay management, with the objective to minimize passengers travel time. While many optimizationapproaches simplify these prob lems by assuming that passengers route choice is independent of the solution, this book focuses on models which take into account that passengers will adapt their travel route to the implementedplanning solution. That is, a planning solution and passenger s routes are determined and evaluated simultaneously. This work is technically deep, with insightful findings regarding complexity and algorithmic approaches to publictransportation problems with integrated passenger routing. It is intended for researcher s in the fields of mathematics, computer science, or operations research, working in the field of public transportation from an optimizationstandpoint. It is also ideal for students who want to gain intuition and experience in doing complexity proofs and designing polynomial-time algorithms for network problems. The book models line planning, timetabling, and delaymanagement as combined design and routing problems on networks. In a complexity analysis, the border between NP-hard and polynomially solvable problems is illustrated. Based on that, the insights gained are used to develop solutionapproaches for the considered problems. Besides integer programming formulations, a heuristic method iterating planning and routing steps is proposed to solve the prob lems

Title:Statistical Decision Problems [electronic resource] : Selected Concepts and Portfolio Safeguard Case Studies
Author(s): Michael Zabarankin
Stan Uryasev
Date:2014
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Statistical Decision Problems presents a quick and concise introduction into the theory of risk, deviation and error measures that play a key role in statistical decision problems. It introduces state-of-the-art practical decisionmaking through twent y-one case studies from real-life applications. The case studies cover a broad area of topics and the authors include links with source code and data, a very helpful tool for the reader. In its core, the textdemonstrates how to use different factors to fo rmulate statistical decision problems arising in various risk management applications, such as optimal hedging, portfolio optimization, cash flow matching, classification, and more. Thepresentation is organized into three parts: selected concepts of stat istical decision theory, statistical decision problems, and case studies with portfolio safeguard. The text is primarily aimed at practitioners in the areas of riskmanagement, decision making, and statistics. However, the inclusion of a fair bit of mathem atical rigor renders this monograph an excellent introduction to the theory of general error, deviation, and risk measures for graduatestudents. It can be used as supplementary reading for graduate courses including statistical analysis, data mining, stoc hastic programming, financial engineering, to name a few. The high level of detail may serve useful to appliedmathematicians, engineers, and statisticians interested in modeling and managing risk in various applications

Note:This textbook provides a comprehensive and instructive coverage of vehicular traffic flow dynamics and modeling. It makes this fascinating interdisciplinary topic, which to date was only documented in parts by specializedmonographs, accessible to a b road readership. Numerous figures and problems with solutions help the reader to quickly understand and practice the presented concepts. This book is targeted at students of physics and traffic engineeringand, more generally, also at students and professi onals in computer science, mathematics, and interdisciplinary topics. It also offers material for project work in programming and simulation at college and university level. The mainpart, after presenting different categories of traffic data, is devoted t o a mathematical description of the dynamics of traffic flow, covering macroscopic models which describe traffic in terms of density, as well as microscopicmany-particle models in which each particle corresponds to a vehicle and its driver.Focus chapters on traffic instabilities and model calibration/validation present these topics in a novel and systematic way.Finally, thetheoretical framework is shown at work in selected applications such as traffic-state and travel-time estimation, intelligent transpor tation systems, traffic operations management, and a detailed physics-based model for fuelconsumption and emissions

Note:The importance of supply chain management has increased over the last few decades. Today, entire supply chains are competing with each other instead of individual companies. As such, supply chain management has become a way forcompanies to set themse lves apart from competing companies and their supply chains. Interestingly, supply chain management mainly focuses on efficiency-oriented topics rather than effectiveness-driven issues, in particular the designof supply chains from manufacturing sites dow nstream, instead of upstream from the customer. The Supply Chain Differentiation Guide offers a modern approach to supply chain management. While for many years one-size-fits-allapproaches to supply chain management were very common, the current efforts o f managers and academics alike focus on the simultaneous management of multiple supply chains. Despite the interest of the business sector in the managementof multiple supply chains, academia has largely neglected this topic to date. The Supply Chain Diff erentiation Guide addresses this shortcoming, introducing both established and cutting-edge management methods to the context of supplychain differentiation and providing inspirations for how to improve corporate operations

Note:Introduction to Global Optimization Exploiting Space-Filling Curves provides an overview of classical and new results pertaining to the usage of space-filling curves in global optimization. The authors look at a family ofderivative-free numerical alg orithms applying space-filling curves to reduce the dimensionality of the global optimization problem along with a number of unconventional ideas, such as adaptive strategies for estimating Lipschitzconstant, balancing global and local information to acce lerate the search. Convergence conditions of the described algorithms are studied in depth and theoretical considerations are illustrated through numerical examples. This workalso contains a code for implementing space-filling curves that can be used for constructing new global optimization algorithms. Basic ideas from this text can be applied to a number of problems including problems with multiextremaland partially defined constraints and non-redundant parallel computations can be organized. Professors, students, researchers, engineers, and other professionals in the fields of pure mathematics, nonlinear sciences studying fractals,operations research, management science, industrial and applied mathematics, computer science, engineering, economics, and t he environmental sciences will find this title useful .

Note:Despite significant achievements, the discipline of supply chain management is still unable to satisfactorily handle many practical real-world challenges. The authors of Networks Against Time claim that a unified supply chainnetwork analytics framewo rk is needed which should be able to handle optimization and competitive behavior while also maintain relevance to many industrial sectors in which perishable products are prominent, from healthcare to food andfrom fashion apparel to technology. This Brie f provides a wide range of critical supply chain problems which are modeled as generalized networks. Guidelines are provided to determine the arc multipliers that capture perish ability ofthe product whether food, radioisotopes, or even highly perishable blood in healthcare over space and time. Through case studies the authors portray the application of the models and algorithms to real-world sectors which illustratethe power of the framework in practice. The models and algorithms are fully described alon g with the input and output data in the case studies. This level of transparency is useful pedagogically as well as for future research and forapplications in practice. Researchers and practitioners in mathematics, in operations research and management sc ience, operations management, as well as in economics and computer science will find this book useful to gain a broaderappreciation of the richness of network supply chain structures, processes, and applications. This book can also be used by advanced und ergraduate students and graduate students in the disciplines noted above to familiarize themselveswith methodologies and supply chain network models and applications

Note:Water supply- and drainage systems and mixed water channel systems are networks whose high dynamic is determined and/or affected by consumer habits on drinking water on the one hand and by climate conditions, in particularrainfall, on the other hand. According to their size, water networks consist of hundreds or thousands of system elements. Moreover, different types of decisions (continuous and discrete) have to be taken in the water management. Thenetworks have to be optimized in terms of topology and operation by targeting a variety of criteria. Criteria may for example be economic, social or ecological ones and may compete with each other. The development of complex modelsystems and their use for deriving optimal decisions in water management is taking place at a rapid pace. Simulation and optimization methods originating in Operations Research have been used for several decades usually with verylimited direct cooperation with applied mathematics. The research presented here aims at bridging this gap, thereby opening up space for synergies and innovation. It is directly applicable for relevant practical problems and has beencarried out in cooperation with utility and dumping companies, infrastructure providers and planning offices. A close and di rect connection to the practice of water management has been established by involving application-orientedknow-how from the field of civil engineering. On the mathematical side all necessary disciplines were involved, including mixed-integer optimization, multi-objective and facility location optimization, numerics for cross-linked dynamictransportation systems and optimization as well as control of hybrid systems. Most of the presented research has been supported by the joint project Discret-continuous o ptimization of dynamic water systems of the federalministry of education and research (BMBF)

Note:Financial Decision Making Using Computational Intelligence covers all the recent developments in complex financial decision making through computational intelligence approaches. Computational intelligence has evolved rapidly inrecent years and it is now one of the most active fields in operations research and computer science. The increasing complexity of financial problems and the enormous volume of financial data often make it difficult to applytraditional modeling and algorithmic procedures. In th is context, the field of computational intelligence provides a wide range of useful techniques, including new modeling tools for decision making under risk and uncertainty, datamining techniques for analyzing complex data bases, and powerful algorithms fo r complex optimization problems. This book presents the recent advances made in financial decision making using computational intelligence, covering bothnew methodological developments as well as new emerging application areas. This work covers a wide ra nge of topics related to financial decision making, financial modeling, risk management, and financial engineering, includingalgorithmic trading, financial time-series analysis, asset pricing, portfolio management, auction markets, and insurance services.

Note:Product and service innovations are the result of mutually interacting creative and coordination tasks within a system that has to balance technical decisions, marketplace taste, personnel management, and stakeholder commitment.The constituent elemen ts of such systems are often scattered across multiple firms and across the globe and constitute a complex system consisting of many interacting parts. In the spirit of the butterfly effect, metaphoricallydescribing the sensitivity to initials conditions of chaotic systems, this book builds an argument that innovation butterflies can, in the short term, take up significant amounts of effort and sap efficiencies within individualinnovation projects. Such innovation butterflies can be prompted by external f orces such as government legislation or unexpected spikes in the price of basic goods (such as oil), unexpected shifts in market tastes, or from acompany managers decisions or those of its competitors. Even the smallest change, the smallest disruption, to this system can steer a firm down an unpredictable and irreversibly different path in terms of technology and marketevolution. In the long term, they can shift the balance of the entire innovation portfolio into unplanned directions. More importantly, we describe how innovation leaders can influence the emergent behavior of the system for good orill. The first half of the book draws parallels from physics, economics, and sociology as well as evidence from multiple industries to describe the structural an d behavioral causes of emergent phenomena in innovation settings as wellas their often negative impacts. In the second half of the book, we turn to distributed management of innovation under emergence. We show that innovation butterflies, if improperly ma naged, most often lead to negative outcomes. On theother hand, it is also argued that while the complexity of the innovation system and the desire to experiment and try new and emergent alterna

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Complex optimization problems abound in the real world. In the face of these challenges, established methods often fall short of providing solutions. However, exact and heuristic techniques are dramatically enhancingour ability to solve significant p ractical problems in the world of optimization. They are changing the landscape in the field, broadening the frontiers of the possible, and allowing us to engage effectively with a whole new range ofchallenges. This monograph sets out state-of-the-art opt imization methods for tackling the linear ordering problem (LOP). Whereas important applications in business, engineering and economics lie beyond the reach of methodologiesthat have been the focus of academic research for three decades, the fresh approac hes set out in this volume provide practical solutions to the LOP. The focus on the LOP does not limit the monographs scope and applicability,however. The exact and heuristic techniques outlined in these pages can be put to use in any number of combinator ial optimization problems. While the authors employ the LOP to illustrate cutting-edge optimization technologies, the bookis also a tutorial on how to design effective and successful implementations of exact and heuristic procedures alike. The information in these pages provides readers with a toolkit that can be employed in a variety of settings. As aresult, the book will be of great interest to researchers and practitioners in a number of fields, including computer science, mathematics, operations resea rch, management science, industrial engineering, and economics. It is alsosuitable for use as a textbook on issues of practical optimization in a masters course, or as a reference book for engineering optimization algorithms. The authors have sought to ma ke the book accessible to as wide an audience aspossible by providing the reader with basic definitions and concepts in optimization. In addition, the numerous tutorials aid speedy

Note:Forest Analytics with R combines practical, down-to-earth forestry data analysis and solutions to real forest management challenges with state-of-the-art statistical and data-handling functionality. The authors adopt aproblem-driven approach, in whic h statistical and mathematical tools are introduced in the context of the forestry problem that they can help to resolve. All the tools are introduced in the context of real forestry datasets, whichprovide compelling examples of practical applications. Th e modeling challenges covered within the book include imputation and interpolation for spatial data, fitting probability density functions to tree measurement data using maximumlikelihood, fitting allometric functions using both linear and non-linear leas t-squares regression, and fitting growth models using both linear and non-linear mixed-effects modeling. The coverage also includes deploying and usingforest growth models written in compiled languages, analysis of natural resources and forestry inventory data, and forest estate planning and optimization using linear programming. The book would be ideal for a one-semester class inforest biometrics or applied statistics for natural resources management. The text assumes no programming background, some intr oductory statistics, and very basic applied mathematics. Andrew Robinson has been associate professor offorest mensuration and forest biometrics at the University of Idaho, and is currently senior lecturer in applied statistics at the University of Melbou rne. He received his PhD in forestry from the University of Minnesota. Robinson isauthor of the popular and freely-available icebreakeR document.

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This is an introductory-level text on stochastic modeling. It is suited for undergraduate students in engineering, operations research, statistics, mathematics, actuarial science, business management, computer science, and publicpolicy. It employs a large number of examples to teach the students to use stochastic models of real-life systems to predict their performance, and use this analysis to design better systems. The book is devoted to the study ofimportant classes of stochastic processes: discre te and continuous time Markov processes, Poisson processes, renewal and regenerative processes, semi-Markov processes, queueing models, and diffusion processes. The book systematicallystudies the short-term and the long-term behavior, cost/reward models, and first passage times. All the material is illustrated with many examples, and case studies. The book provides a concise review of probability in the appendix.The book emphasizes numerical answers to the problems. A collection of MATLAB programs to acco mpany the this book can be downloaded from http://www.unc.edu/~vkulkarn/Maxim/maxim.zip. A graphical user interface to access the above filescan be downloaded from http://www.unc.edu/~vkulkarn/Maxim/maximgui.zip . The second edition incorporates several c hanges. First its title reflects the changes in content: the chapters on design and control have been removed. The booknow contains several case studies that teach the design principles. Two new chapters have been added. The new chapter on Poisson process es gives more attention to this important class of stochastic processes than the first edition did.The new chapter on Brownian motion reflects its increasing importance as an appropriate model for a variety of real-life situations, including finance.

Note:This volume covers recent developments in the design, operation, and management of telecommunication and computer network systems in performance engineering and addresses issues of uncertainty, robustness, and risk. Uncertaintyregarding loading and s ystem parameters leads to challenging optimization and robustness issues. Stochastic modeling combined with optimization theory ensures the optimum end-to-end performance of telecommunication or computer networksystems. In view of the diverse design optio ns possible, supporting models have many adjustable parameters and choosing the best set for a particular performance objective is delicate and time-consuming. An optimization based approachdetermines the optimal possible allocation for these parameters. Researchers and graduate students working at the interface of telecommunications and operations research will benefit from this book. Due to the practical approach, thisbook will also serve as a reference tool for scientists and engineers in telecommunica tion and computer networks who depend upon optimization
