Optimal design of healthcare services after the separation of prescribing and dispensing.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): International Journal of Production Research. May2022, Vol. 60 Issue 9, p2918-2941. 24p. 1 Chart, 8 Graphs.

Abstract: Healthcare services are customer-intensive services and usually accompanied by other treatment-related consumptions, e.g. medications. Traditionally in China, prescribing and dispensing are both made by hospitals, which causes high drug expenses. To so...

Integrated design for product–service systems: a focus on multi-disciplinary interface.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): International Journal of Production Research. Oct2021, Vol. 59 Issue 19, p5884-5902. 19p. 2 Color Photographs, 8 Diagrams, 3 Charts.

Abstract: The increased competitive pressure forces companies to cease distinguishing products and services, and to provide customers with highly individualised solutions. To meet this requirement, it has been proposed the concept of product–service system (PSS)...

A geometric branch-and-bound algorithm for the service bundle design problem.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): European Journal of Operational Research. Dec2022, Vol. 303 Issue 3, p1044-1056. 13p.

Abstract: • A Geometric-Branch-and-bound algorithm for the 0–1 sum-of-ratios problem. • The GB&B algorithm strengthens the bounds of each dimension to solve the problem. • The algorithm converts the sum-of-ratios problem into a series of single-ratio ones. • A p...

Designing a service system with price- and distance-sensitive demand: A case study in mining industry.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): European Journal of Operational Research. Dec2022, Vol. 303 Issue 3, p1355-1371. 17p.

Abstract: • A profit-maximizing congested facility location problem is studied with price- and distance sensitive demands. • A general functional form is considered for the demand and two discriminatory and uniform pricing strategies are employed. • The service ...

Lagrange dual bound computation for stochastic service network design.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): European Journal of Operational Research. Nov2022, Vol. 302 Issue 3, p1097-1112. 16p.

Abstract: • Lower bounds play an important role in SSND algorithm development. • A Lagrange dual bound of SSND is developed by introducing scenario bundling into scenario-wise decomposition. • Theoretical analysis establishes the superiority of bundling-wise dec...

Social Media as a Tool for Consumer Engagement in Hospital Quality Improvement and Service Design: Barriers and Enablers for Implementation.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): International Journal of Health Policy & Management. Oct2022, Vol. 11 Issue 10, p2287-2298. 12p.

Abstract: Background: Social media can be used to engage consumers in hospital service design and quality improvement (QI) activities, however its uptake may be limited by a lack of guidance to support implementation. This article presents the perceived barriers...

An exact algorithm for the single liner service design problem with speed optimisation.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): International Journal of Production Research. Nov 2021, Vol. 59 Issue 22, p6809-6832. 24p. 13 Charts, 5 Graphs.

Abstract: This paper models a single liner service design and operations problem. The model selects the ports to be included, their sequence, the sailing speed of vessels, the number of vessels and the amounts of cargo to transport by the service. The objective ...
