Operations Research (OR) is the study of mathematical models for complex organizational systems. Optimization is a branch of OR which uses mathematical techniques such as linear and nonlinear programming to derive values for system variables that will optimize performance. Introduction to Operations Research – p.5
Researchers have developed a new method for upcycling abundant, seemingly low-value plastics into high-quality liquid products, such as motor oils, lubricants, detergents and even cosmetics.
Fracking companies across the nation use a multitude of methods for disposing of the flowback water they produce. Dependent on each state's regulations for disposal, energy companies often have three different methods to choose from; deep well injection, open air pits, or treatment and reuse of the water.

Lehigh University's College of Business is accredited by AACSB International-The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. AACSB International accreditation assures quality and promotes excellence and continuous improvement in undergraduate and graduate education for business administration and accounting.
Lehigh's Healthcare Systems Engineering Master program is unique in that the students come from a variety of academic and professional backgrounds, their common denominator being a collective frustration with the state of the healthcare system and a desire to use innovative and analytical approaches to improve it.
Verify the design, set up pilot runs, implement the production process and hand it over to the process owner(s). Quality management tools and methods. Within the individual phases of a DMAIC or DMADV project, Six Sigma utilizes many established quality-management tools that …
Surrogate models have been widely adopted for reliability analysis. The common approach is to construct a series of surrogates based on a training set and then pick out the best one with the highest accuracy as an approximation of the time-consuming limit state function. However, the traditional method increases the risk of adopting an inappropriate model and does not take full advantage of ...
Step 6: Design Evaluation Research. The key to a good evaluation plan is the design of the study or studies to answer the evaluation questions. There are many possible research designs and plans. Your objective should be to maximize the reliability and the validity of your evaluation results.
Integrated Process Design and Control. The industrial process design and control functions are becoming more integrated. Greater opportunities exist to prove plant operability early during the conceptual process design. This is becoming more important as customers demand greater supply reliability and consistent product quality.

Computational Experience with Hypergraph-based Methods for Automatic Decomposition in Discrete Optimization Jiadong Wangy1 and Ted Ralphsz1 1Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering, Lehigh University, USA November 11, 2012 Abstract
Definitions Clinical Research is work that is hypothesis-driven and systematically designed with the goal of creating new knowledge. Data is gathered by interaction or intervention with individuals. Identifiable individual health information is gathered. Quality Improvement is the process of systematic, data- guided activities to support better outcomes, better
Creating new knowledge through groundbreaking research while sharing meaningful insights with tomorrow's innovators: Lehigh is unique among competitive research universities in insisting upon a true balance between the two.Lehigh researchers engage in ongoing discovery and innovation that matters — including health and healthcare, energy and its environmental impact, and sustainable ...

Introduction of an evidence-based practice change, such as hourly rounding, can be difficult in the hospital setting. This study used ethnographic methods to examine problems with the implementation of hourly rounding on 2 similar inpatient units at our hospital.
The Healthcare Systems Engineering program provides the option for a Certificate in Healthcare Systems Engineering. The certificate may be completed as a standalone curriculum, paired with another Master's degree from Lehigh, or taken on the path towards completing a Master of Engineering Degree in Healthcare Systems Engineering.
Planning is a critical process in every company. It drives many of the processes that are the foundation of the supply chain. Without effective demand and inventory planning, companies would need to react to constantly changing market trends leading to operational uncertainty, poor customer service, and, ultimately, weakened financial performance.
Mar 10, 2015· Methods. Learning Evaluation is an approach to multi-organization assessment. Qualitative and quantitative data are collected to conduct real-time assessment of implementation processes while also assessing changes in context, facilitating quality improvement using run charts and audit and feedback, and generating transportable lessons.
General The process of posing questions and then seeking to answer them by collecting and analyzing suitable data is an essential component of research in a remarkably diverse array of fields. This includes agriculture, medical research, industrial research, forensic science, market research, environmental science, political science and quality assurance.
Quality metrics, given the geometric location, will be related to the processing conditions and resultant microstructure. Ultimately, a process-microstructure-property model is envisioned (and validated with probabilistic modeling) for reliability and life prediction of printed materials.
Outcome measures may seem to represent the "gold standard" in measuring quality, but an outcome is the result of numerous factors, many beyond providers' control. Risk-adjustment methods—mathematical models that correct for differing characteristics within a population, such as patient health status—can help account for these factors.
Quality control is a process through which a business seeks to ensure that product quality is maintained or improved and manufacturing errors are reduced or eliminated. Quality control requires ...
