Inside IISE Journals

This month we highlight two articles from IISE Transactions. The first article studies how to decide locations and sizes of warehouses in a supply chain distribution system. The authors propose a model where customers choose their preferred facility according to a combination of facility location and waiting time, and they design a method to help the system operator provide a balance between system cost and quality-of-service to the customers. The second investigates the appointment capacity planning of primary care delivery with e-visits in a healthcare system. The author develops a novel discrete-time bulk-service queueing model that serves as a quantitative tool for care providers and administrators to design clinical services to improve patient accessibility and provider productivity. These articles will appear in the November 2018 issue (Vol 50, No. 11).
