As supply chains span across one or more continents, an intermediate firm becomes an inevitable supply chain component. While seller-financing options (e.g. delay in payment), are well studied, res...

This article presents an approach to the assessment of operational manufacturing systems complexity based on the irregularities hidden in manufacturing key performance indicator time-series by empl...
We propose a multistage algorithm for the Vehicle Routing Problem with Time Windows and Synchronised Visits, which is capable of solving large problem instances arising in Home Health Care applications. The algorithm is based on a Constraint Programming formulation of the daily Home Care Scheduling and Routing Problem. It contains visits with hard time windows and pairwise synchronisation to be staffed by carers who have different skills and work custom shift patterns with contractual breaks. In...

AbstractNo-shows in medical centres cause under-utilisation of resources and increase waiting times in specialty health care services. Although this problem has been addressed in literature, behavi...

AbstractRecent research has discovered links between patient satisfaction and waiting time perceptions. We examine factors associated with waiting time estimation behaviour and how it can be linked to patient flow modelling. Using data from more than 250 patients, we evaluate machine learning (ML) methods to understand waiting time estimation behaviour in two emergency department areas. Our attribute ranking and selection methods reveal that actual waiting time, clinical attributes, and the serv...

AbstractThis article presents a survey of the literature on the application of operational research (OR) in healthcare, with a particular focus on behavioural considerations. In order to explore the extent to which behavioural aspects are included, we perform a search of the most relevant OR journals for articles with content related to the representation of behaviour in models, evidence of behavioural change using models, and the impact on organisations beyond the use of a model. A detailed ana...

AbstractIn the classical queueing theory literature, a server is commonly assumed to work at a constant speed. Motivated by observations from healthcare applications, a study is made to explore the nature of the relationship between service times and workload in order to assess and quantify any workforce (server) behaviours. Consequently, an initial analytical queueing model is considered with switching thresholds to allow for two-speed service. In this model service time depends on queue length...

Due to fierce competition in the product market under conditions of supplier encroachment, many brand name retailers, including Sears, Best Buy, and Circuit City, depend on the extended warranty contracts that they sell along with the products. The distribution of extended warranties through an intermediary can be characterized in terms of two basic forms. A large proportion of retailers sell their own extended warranty, whilst others choose to resell the extended warranty provided by upstream a...

In this paper we compare the emergency department (ED) treatment processes which occur when an Ambulance Offload Zone (OZ) is functioning and when it is not. An OZ is a monitored waiting space for ...
