State Space Collapse in Many-Server Diffusion Limits of Parallel Server Systems and Applications
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2006-07-05)
We consider a class of queueing systems that consist of server pools in parallel and multiple customer classes. Customer service times are assumed to be exponentially distributed. We study the asymptotic behavior of these ...
Spare parts provisioning for rotatable, fleet-operated components
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 1973-05)
Performance improvements through flexible workforce
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2008-08-25)
This thesis focuses on increasing the efficiency of systems with cross-trained workforce and finite storage spaces. Our objective is to maximize the throughput and minimize the setup costs (if they exist). More specifically, ...
Customer allocation policies in a two server network: stability and exact asymptotics
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2003-12-01)
Analytical Approach to Estimating AMHS Performance in 300mm Fabs
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2006-07-07)
This thesis proposes a computationally effective analytical approach to automated material handling system (AMHS) performance modeling for a simple closed loop AMHS, such as is typical in supporting a 300mm wafer fab bay. ...
Applications of Decision Analysis to Health Care
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2007-12-06)
This dissertation deals with three problems in health care. In the first, we consider the incentives to change prices and capital levels at hospitals, using optimal control under the assumption that private payers charge ...
An investigation of the effects of non-preemptive priority and operator interference in a textile weaving process
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 1965-05)
A variable-channel queuing model with a limited number of channels
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 1960-08)
Bias optimality in a two-class nonstationary queueing system
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 1998-08)
The multiple-server queue with heterogeneous service times
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 1973-08)
