Transportation Operations Management Book Excerpt:

Transportation Operations Management provides the analytical tools and industry-wide context necessary to understand and address the critical real-world problems in transportation operations and planning that shippers, carriers, and third-party logistics providers face every day. The book examines operational problems from all transportation modes—air, motor carrier, water vessel, pipeline, and rail—to show how these interact in the real world of today’s carriers and shippers. The book also outlines and analyzes key issues such as designing efficient domestic and international transportation networks; choosing optimal locations within market spaces; designing infrastructure to manage network congestion; leveraging intermodalism for operational flexibility; leveraging techniques for costing, pricing, and revenue management; using tracking technology for decisionmaking; maintaining regulatory compliance in operations; and managing environmental stewardship. Paying particular attention to the influence of the logistical constraints of time, physical space, and location, the book reveals the key role of transportation in strategic and tactical decision-making. The book uses mathematical techniques such as the theory of capacity management, the microeconomics of costing and pricing, risk management, linear optimization, productivity measurement, queueing theory, and complex scheduling. The book also uses real-world problems with their actual marketplace constraints in technology, geography, and government regulations to provide an applied context to the techniques examined. Applies the latest analytical techniques to address real-world situations domestically and internationally, from industry and government, demonstrating the interplay between business and government, and planning vs day-to-day operations Includes case studies that demonstrate the opportunities and constraints regarding how workable solutions to an operations management problem can be structured Includes learning aids such as chapter objectives, in-depth discussion of techniques, and key points made in prose, mathematically, and diagrammatically

Advances in Managing Humanitarian Operations Book Excerpt:

This volume provides a survey of current research problems and results in humanitarian operations research. Additionally, it discusses existing applications of humanitarian operations research, and considers new research efforts that clearly extend existing research and applications. The book is divided into three sections that provide an overview of the subject, a look at the theory, and an examination of applications. The overview section presents chapters on modeling approaches and metrics to evaluate nonprofit operations; chief findings of fieldwork research in disaster response logistics; the use of cash as a form of relief; and measuring markets that supply cash-based humanitarian interventions. The theory section includes chapters that examine the partner proliferation problem in disaster response networks; a case study of humanitarian logistics that examines how humanitarian culture informs change adoption; and a look at the current state of the art for information visibility in humanitarian operations. Finally, the application section focuses on blood products, vaccines, and food assistance, with individual chapters on efficient inventorying and distribution of blood products during disasters; a detailed look at modeling in the context of the vaccine supply chain; a framework for achieving equity, effectiveness, and efficiency in food bank operations; and a spatio-temporal vulnerabili ty assessment of the resilience of a population affected by sudden lack of food.

Analytics for the Sharing Economy Mathematics Engineering and Business Perspectives Book Excerpt:

The book provides an encompassing overview of all aspects relating to the sharing economy paradigm in different fields of study, and shows the ongoing research efforts in filling previously identified gaps in understanding in this area. Control and optimization analytics for the sharing economy explores bespoke analytics, tools, and business models that can be used to help design collaborative consumption services (the shared economy). It provides case studies of collaborative consumption in the areas of energy and mobility. The contributors review successful examples of sharing systems, and explore the theory for designing effective and stable shared-economy models. They discuss recent innovations in and uses of shared economy models in niche areas, such as energy and mobility. Readers learn the scientific challenging issues associated with the realization of a sharing economy. Conceptual and practical matters are examined, and the state-of-the-art tools and techniques to address such applications are explained. The contributors also show readers how topical problems in engineering, such as energy consumption in power grids, or bike sharing in transportation networks, can be formulated and solved from a general collaborative consumption perspective. Since the book takes a mathematical perspective to the topic, researchers in business, computer science, optimization and control find it useful. Practitioners also use the book as a point of reference, as it explores and investigates the analytics behind economy sharing.
