This thesis provides insight into how the design approach, also known as ‘Design Thinking’ could be implemented in infrastructure planning processes. This is done with the objective to prevent premature convergence, which means, too early choosing for a solution by which other valuable alternatives are ‘killed off.’ By preventing premature...

The social dimension in water management and the interaction of stakeholders is a challenge when modeling hydrological systems. Case studies are essential to uncovering relations and unexpected results. In this research, a case study of the Guayllabamba basin in Ecuador is proposed. Mainly, the interactions, perspectives, and relations between...

In operational airline crew scheduling, one of the major tasks is to allocate flight activities to individual crew members. This task is referred to as the crew rostering problem; an optimization problem that aims to assign flights to crew members in a cost-effective way, while also considering preferences of crewmembers. Flights are combined...

Whilst research in solar cell materials lead to higher efficiencies every year, new difficulties arise with every breakthrough to get an even higher efficiency. Therefore, every component of a PV system should be examined, as well as how their behaviour under operation affects performance to improve the overall PV yield. In particular the...

The summer and autumn of 2018 showed the negative effects of both low-flow conditions and bed degradation over the last century on the river functions of the Dutch Rhine. These resulted in record-breaking water levels, extreme low navigation depth and subsequently nautical problems. As climate change will increase the inter-annual variability of...

This thesis describes the design process of a service/tool for the management and prevention of periprosthetic joint infection (PJI) cases. PJI is a complication that follows total joint replacement and is devastating for the patient. It causes physical and mental strain and the patient's health never returns to close to what it was prior to the...

This research explores the factors that challenge the implementation of Revenue Management (RM) in manufacturing industries. Previous research focused mainly on Order Management to explain how RM could be applied with studies that are mathematical by nature. However, there is no empirical study explaining the implementation process of RM in...

As population levels protected by large dams have risen in the last decades, accurately assessing flood hazard and risk will become increasingly important for developing and sustaining flood mitigation policies. Recent research has shown that the degree of control and protection offered by retaining structures largely depend on their operation...

Managing electrical distribution assets entails making the decision on how to proceed with an ageing asset. The three options that asset managers have are run to fail, perform maintenance or repairs and lastly to replace. This decision making process is becoming incrementally more important due to the threat of replacement waves. This a...
