Workforce scheduling model

Workforce Scheduling Model Student’s Name: Institutional Affiliation: Chapter 4 Case Study and Model Formulation This chapter focuses on a case study of a power plant experiencing workforce problems of operators taking excess overtime hours. The extra hours require the plant to incur extra expenditure and add to overall production costs lowering the profit margin of the plant, aside from generating problems during regular scheduling of shifts. The solution to this problem is to formulate a mathematical model to generate the optimal workforce scheduling plan to reduce the demand for the excess overtime hours. An optimal workforce scheduling plan reduces the pressure on workers and allows the...

Thermal imaging with drone

Acknowledgements Abstract Most methods use 2D thermal images because they are easily obtainable. However, the proposed procedure for 3D model reconstruction in this paper can provide helpful support in making interpretation and evaluation of thermal data more automatic, faster and objective. Contrary to other methods, thermal imaging can work in environments without ambient light. It can penetrate obscurants like smoke, haze, and fog. The paper will address the challenge of 3D reconstruction from images of thermal infrared (TIR). It seeks to demonstrate that commercial computer vision software may be used to orient the sequence of TIR images from a drone and produce 3D point cloud without having...

Comparative Analysis of Louvain and K-Means Methods for Community Detection By Firstname LastnameUniversity Name Abstract Community detection in the graphs of complex real network systems is a significant area of data science research. A community or a cluster is one that has many edges joining the vertices included within the cluster while fewer edges joining with the vertices not included. The criteria for inclusion in a community is based on the data of the vertices and edges. A system’s data helps form communities of a system.

This dependence has resulted in a catch-22 following Brexit and other developing relationships within the financial sector of the UK. The effect of the EU on the UK’s financial sector is...
