Inside IISE Journals

This month we highlight two articles from IISE Transactions. The first article addresses how to maximize asset availability and avoid unscheduled shutdowns and failures by proposing a prognostic modeling functional data analytic framework with algorithms in a big data environment. The solution presented has the potential to make a great impact in industries that rely on the continuous availability of capital-intensive assets like the energy and power generation sector. The second article proposes a novel statistical model for the unique data of nurse care coordination, along with further use of the model to examine and reveal how multiple aspects of nurses' care coordination activities are related to their demographic and workload variables at the individual/nurse level as well as the structure, policy and climate of the nurses' practice environment at the unit level. The authors demonstrated the developed method with real data sets to improve staff-nurse care coordination within hospital units to improve patient quality of life and save costs in the healthcare system. These articles will appear in the July 2017 issue (Volume 49, No. 7).
