Optimizing the layout of a grocery/ convenience store to maximize revenue from impulse items
In this paper we design a layout for a grocery/convenience store application based on the p-dispersion problem . The focus is to maximize the revenue from purchase of "impulse" items. We develop a two stage heuristic ...
Optimization of an airport security selectee lane system using simulation
In this thesis, we present an optimization approach for an airport security selectee lane system using simulation. A typical U.S. airport has two kinds of passenger checkpoint screening lanes: a normal lane and a selectee ...
Effect of surface conformity and roughness on wear - A finite element study
The use of computational methods such as finite element analysis to model wear and determine the useful life span of mechanical systems has gained considerable interest in recent years. To analyze the local wear taking ...
Study of methods and techniques for trocar insertion simulation
A critical first step for most minimally invasive surgical procedures is trocar insertion. What makes this procedure difficult to learn and master is that it is carried out with no or limited visual feedback of the underlying ...
