In this report, supply chains of factory outlet stores are analyzed. Here, the concept of factory outlet stores have been investigated in literature to be able to understand which goal these stores serves. Based on a pull based supply chain perspective, replenishment has been investigated. Here, demand forecast, inventory, order ful_llment and...

Deep neural networks (DNNs) are becoming the core components of many applications running on edge devices,especially for image-based analysis, e.g., identifying objects, faces, and genders. While very successful in resource rich environments like the cloud of powerful computers, utilizing Deep Learning on edge devices for inference is not used...

Waste-to-energy is the process of generating energy from municipal waste. The most conventional energy recovery method is incineration, which takes place at a waste-to-energy plant. The incoming waste is collected in a bunker, where an overhead crane stacks and mixes the material before feeding it to the furnaces. The more homogeneous the waste...

For any real-time system, being predictable with respect to time is a basic necessity. The combination of a preemptive execution model and a multiprocessor platform poses a challenge when analysing the predictability of a system. In this thesis, we present a new type of framework for the worst-case response time analysis for preemptive tasks...

This paper addresses the airline centred Arrival Sequencing and Scheduling problem aimed at the smart distribution of arrival delays, considering the explicit preferences from users. We consider the scenario in which actions are executed solely in the en-route phase with the available leeway present in the<br/>current ATM system. The arrival...

Quantum networks are networks composed of quantum processors that facilitate the exchange of information in the form of quantum bits, also called qubits. Qubits observe a physical phenomenon known as entanglement that enables the transmission of quantum information over long distances as well as the realization of novel protocols and...

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...

Gang scheduling, has long been adopted by the high-performance computing community as a way to reduce the synchronization overhead between related threads. Gang schedulling allows for several threads to execute in lock steps without suffering from long busy-wait periods or be penalised by large context-switch overheads. If several threads use...

This research is focused on the proactive-reactive rescheduling process of the Train Unit Shunting Problem (TUSP) on train maintenance shunting yards. An important difference between a scheduling process and the rescheduling process is that a reschedule must be both feasible and desirable (similar to pre-schedule), while a schedule does not...

The competition in the airline industry has rapidly increased during the last decades, especially with the entrance in the market of low-cost carriers. The high costs incurred in Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) activities are generating a great interest in the improvement of maintenance operations as a way to stay competitive in the...

The MRO market currently spans around 9.5% of the total operating cost of an airline. Of this, 70% is covered by heavy-maintenance. Reduction of these costs and improving efficiency could, therefore, be significant for an airline. A possible solution is the optimization of the long-term schedule of heavy-maintenance checks. Current approaches...

Industrial companies aim for optimizing profit from delivering project outcomes. Maximizing profit relies on optimization of using resources, production capacity and available time. To reach this goal, companies are typically reliant on planning and production schedules. This problem is known as the project portfolio selection and scheduling...

While multiprocessor platforms have been widely adopted by the embedded systems industry in the past couple of years, there are still fundamental challenges about their timing predictability for applications with real-time timing constraints. The common-off-the-shelf (COTS) multiprocessor platforms typically use complex hardware components,...

One of the main elements for creating an optimal operating room schedule is an accurate surgery duration estimation. Currently, this estimation is only done preoperatively. However, multiple factors during the surgery itself could influence the duration, for example bleeding. Literature showed the possibility of intraoperatively estimating a...

In this thesis we consider multiple Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs) navigating a common workspace to fulfill intralogistics tasks, typically formulated as the Multi-Agent Path Finding (MAPF) problem. To keep plan execution deadlock-free, one approach is to construct an Action Dependency Graph (ADG) which encodes the ordering of AGVs as they...

In this thesis, the design and implementation of a wireless communication module and an accompanying network are discussed. This wireless communication module is used in a device which communicates frost temperatures measured at orchards. The goal is to gather data on how fruit frost develops on orchards, and to warn a fruit farmer if it starts...

The execution of multi-inference tasks on low-powered edge devices has become increasingly popular in recent years for adding value to data on-device. The focus of the optimization of such jobs has been on hardware, neural network architectures, and frameworks to reduce execution speed. However, it is yet not known how different scheduling...

A ship lock scheduling model called LOSCO was developed in order to decrease passage times at locks with two parallel chambers. Three locks were chosen to model, as they are some of the busiest locks of the Netherlands. The Krammersluizen, the Sluizen Hansweert and the Kreekraksluizen. Passage times are not collected at the locks, therefore the...

<br/>This thesis is done in cooperation with Sime Darby Oils Zwijndrecht (SDOZ). SDOZ is a refinery of vegetable based oils. The goal of this thesis is to optimize the scheduling of the Refined Oil Storage (ROS) of the refinery. This is done because within the company it is suspected that the current way of assigning the tanks, that is...

The flight planning process is an extensive and long process to direct and maintain a high level of operations within the airspace. As air traffic demand grows year after year, it's worthwhile to optimise the European air traffic system further. One way of optimising the system, is by creating optimal flight schedules that solve for demand...
