Suitable Planning and scheduling has a great impact on increasing the level of service and efficiency of the hospital. in this thesis, a mixed integer programming model for scheduling weekly elective patients in the surgical theater with the objective of maximizing the number of elective patients for the surgery and also the workload of the operating room... 

    Coordinated Scheduling of Power and Natural Gas Systems Considering Demand Uncertainty

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Nik Payam, Hossein (Author) ; Rafiee, Majid (Supervisor)
    The everyday increasing electricity consumption of household and industrial sectors across the world, and also the limited generation capacity and fuel supplies has led electricity companies, whether in private or government sectors, to focus deliberately on power generation planning, its costs, risks and constraints Because of many reasons including high efficiency, low cost of capital investment, expeditious permitting, and operation flexibility of gas-fired generating units, electricity companies prefer them to old ones like coal-fired or oil-fired generating units. Thus natural gas has gained a significant share in the portfolio of electricity generation fuel resources, and it is...

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Firooze, Saeed (Author) ; Rafiee, Majid (Supervisor)
    The aim of Emergency Medical Services (EMS) is to provide fast medical care and to transport patients to hospitals at the earliest possible time, so as to reduce injury and fatality rate. Healthcare managers try to improve healthcare systems by reducing the response time to demands. In this thesis, we present mathematical models for the problem of location and relocation of emergency vehicles after the end of their service time or after they have returned to a hospital. We believe that implementing these models can help managers improve the performance of emergency medical services. In the first part of this study, we present a two-level deterministic optimization model considering demand... 

    Proposing a Solution Algorithm for Operating Room Scheduling Problem Using Open Scheduling and Elective Patient Strategy

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Iranzad, Reza (Author) ; Rafiee, Majid (Supervisor)
    Operating rooms have always been the most expensive and also the most profitable section in hospitals which include approximately one third of cost and two third of income. The management always wants to decrease the cost of hospitals. On the other hand, usually this goal stands against other goals such as patient’s satisfaction. So the manager should make a balance between these goals. In this research, we will propose an integer programming model for operating room scheduling problem without uncertainty for elective patients. In order to make the model more realistic, we want to make connection between operating room theatre and intensive care units. Also, we will consider desirable...

    In this thesis we will focus on operating room scheduling considering open strategy and uncertainty in the duration of operations for elective patients. A mixed integer programming model will be proposed having the expected list of patients that are going to be scheduled in the specific time horizon and working hours of doctors with the purpose of maximizing the number of scheduled elective patients in the determined time horizon. We aim to assign each patient to an operating room and a start time regarding operating rooms and surgeons working hours, care units capacity constraints and sequencing constraints.

    Providing a Solving Method for Post-Earthquake Resource Allocation Model with Uncertainties

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Jamshidi, Fatemeh (Author) ; Rafiee, Majid (Supervisor)
    Large amounts of relief resources such as water, tents, medical equipment and fuel after a major disaster need to reach the affected people. Satisfying the needs of victims is crucial to the success of crisis relief operations, as a lack of relief resources can lead to the suffering and loss of lives of victims. According to studies, large-scale catastrophes have occurred frequently in recent years. Therefore, it is necessary to pay more attention to the management of post-crisis resources. Since the distribution of emergency resources depends largely on the efficiency and effectiveness of logistics operations, the primary objectives include minimizing logistics time and cost, minimizing... 

    Designing a Comprehensive Quality System and Quality Assurance System in Iran

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Soltani, Mohammad Saleh (Author) ; Rafiee, Majid (Supervisor)
    The design of an indicator for "quality rate measurement" has been done in many countries around the world, and the quality rate, like other economic indicators, is subject to public judgment. Prerequisite for the formation of this index is the existence of a "comprehensive system" for quality management in the country, in which the duties and powers of various institutions in the issue of quality are specified and responsible for each process. With this excellent system, quality management is done in an integrated manner and quality can be managed efficiently by providing indicators.Quality assessment, in addition to hearing the customer's voice, requires other aspects, including examining...
