Inside IISE Journals

This month we highlight two articles from IISE Transactions. The first article studies how to address the uncertainties of input parameters and minimize the bias of outputs introduced by the input parameter estimation errors. To address this problem, the authors proposed using simulation to learn the bias of the performance estimator and adjusting the inputparameter estimator based on the learned bias. This is especially effective in situations where the models have no closedform expression and can be evaluated only through simulation. The second article studies the multiple traveling salesmen problem to minimize the total distance traveled. The authors proposed a decomposition-based method, which outperforms existing methods and is easy to implement to solve real problems. These articles will appear in the January 2018 issue of IISE Transactions (Vol 50, No. 1).
