Seaport operators are becoming more environmentally conscious and are looking to electrify their terminals to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions. This leads to higher energy-related costs and more congestion on the electricity grid. This thesis investigates the potential of demand response as a viable strategy to reduce energy-related costs....

A mathematical model has been developed to determine the timing of the tasks that can be performed on a variety of units to produce a variety of end states and to monitor the flow of the material through the network. The mathematical model is based on the work of Kondili et al. (1993) and is extended with the ability to monitor and restrict the...

Increasing competition amongst airlines necessitates them to improve the efficiency of their operations. Even though maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) represent a significant portion of an airline’s operational costs, aircraft maintenance scheduling is often still a manual process, producing suboptimal solutions. Airlines typically operate...
