  • Cascading failures with local load redistribution in interdependent Watts-Strogatz networks 

    Hong, Chen; Zhang, Jun; Du, Wen-Bo; Sallán Leyes, José María; Lordan González, Oriol (2016-11)
    Article
    Open Access
    Cascading failures of loads in isolated networks have been studied extensively over the last decade. Since 2010, such research has extended to interdependent networks. In this paper, we study cascading failures with local ...
  • Integration of simulation and DEA to determine the most efficient patient appointment scheduling model for a specific healthcare setting 

    Aslani, Nazanin; Zhang, Jun (OmniaScience, 2014-10)
    Article
    Open Access
    Purpose: This study is to develop a systematic approach for determining the most efficient patient appointment scheduling (PAS) model for a specific healthcare setting with its multiple appointments requests characteristics ...
  • Optimal allocation of node capacity in cascade-robustness networks 

    Chen, Zhen; Zhang, Jun; Du, Wen-Bo; Lordan González, Oriol; Tang, Jiangjun (2015-10-23)
    Article
    Open Access
    The robustness of large scale critical infrastructures, which can be modeled as complex networks, is of great significance. One of the most important means to enhance robustness is to optimize the allocation of resources. ...
  • Optimal decisions and comparison of VMI and CPFR under price-sensitive uncertain demand 

    Kazemi, Yasaman; Zhang, Jun (School of Industrial and Aeronautic Engineering of Terrassa (ETSEIAT). Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC), 2013-07)
    Article
    Open Access
    Purpose: The purpose of this study is to compare the performance of two advanced supply chain coordination mechanisms, Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI) and Collaborative Planning Forecasting and Replenishment (CPFR), under ...
  • Production control and supplier selection under demand disruptions 

    Chen, Xianzhe; Zhang, Jun (School of Industrial and Aeronautic Engineering of Terrassa (ETSEIAT). Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC), 2010-12)
    Article
    Open Access
    This paper investigates the effects of demand disruptions on production control and supplier selection in a three-echelon supply chain system. The customer demand is modeled as a jump-diffusion process in a continuous-time ...
