Threshold Reliability of Networks with Small Failure Sets
This paper addresses two classes of reliability analysis models: a network flow model and a project scheduling model. For the network flow model we are given a capacitated source/sink graph in which arcs fail randomly. The ...
Reliability, Covering and Balanced Matrices
The paper addresses a certain generalized covering integer program. The original application that motivated the study of this problem was an emergency services vehicle location problem. In this paper, we show that the same ...
Bounding a Probability Measure over a Polymatroid with an Application to Transportation Problems
We are given a set of supply nodes, a set of demand nodes and a set of arcs between certain supply/demand pairs, which indicate if the supply node can serve as a source for the demand node. The level of the supply available ...
Building Decision Support Systems That Use Operations Research Models as Database Applications
In this paper we address the problem of building decision support systems that make use of multiple operations research models as database application. The motivation for developing applications in a database environment ...
A Reliability Model Applied to Emergency Service Vehicle Location
This article proposes a reliability model for the emergency service vehicle location problem. Emergency services planners must solve the strategic problem of where to locate emergency services stations and the tatical ...
MANDATE: MAnaging Networks using DAtabase TEchnology
In a recent opinion poll of telecommunications executives, enterprise network management was identified to be the top technological issue of the future. At present, however, there do not exist any viable solutions to this ...
