A nonparametric approach for optimal reliability allocation in health services
(Emerald Group Publishing Ltd., 2016-02-01)
Reliability evaluation of healthcare services has been a challenging task for both operations managers and system engineers working in the respective field. The purpose of this paper is to develop a data envelopment ...
On the sensitivity of desirability functions for multiresponse optimization
(Amer Inst Mathematical Sciences, 2008-11)
Desirability functions have been one of the most important multiresponse optimization technique since the early eighties. Main reasons for this popularity might be counted as the convenience of the implementation of the ...
Multiresponse optimisation of powder metals via probabilistic loss functions
(Inderscience Enterprises LTD., 2013)
Quadratic loss functions have been used extensively within the context of quality engineering and experimental design for process and product optimisation and robust design. In general, this approach determines optimal ...
Reliability evaluation of healthcare services by assessing the technical efficiency
(Routledge Journals, Taylor & Francis LTD., 2011)
Classical reliability analysis techniques of manufacturing and defence industries are not a perfect fit for the assessment of the reliability of services. This is partly due to the lack of proper and valid reliability ...
Failure analysis and warranty modeling of used cars
(Pergamon-Elsevier Science LTD., 2011-09)
Reliability is an important aspect of product perception and manufacturers are compelled to take corrective actions on the items failing within the warranty period. Automotive manufacturers are being exposed to significant ...
A DBN based reactive maintenance model for a complex system in thermal power plants
(Elsevier Sci LTD, 2019-10)
Thermal power plants consist of several complex systems having many interacting hidden components. Any unexpected failure may lead to prolonged downtime and serious lost profits. Therefore, implementing an effective ...
