    Document Overview:
    Master surgical scheduling can improve the manageability and efficiency of operating room departments. This approach cyclically executes a master surgical schedule of surgery types. Surgery types need to be constructed with low variability to be efficient. Each surgery type is scheduled based upon its frequency per cycle. Surgery types that cannot be scheduled repetitively are put together in so-called dummy surgeries. Narrowly defined surgery types, with low variability, lead to many of such dummy surgeries, which reduces the benefits of a master surgical scheduling approach. In this paper we propose a method, based on Ward's hierarchical cluster method, to obtain surgery types that minimize the weighted sum of the dummy surgery volume and the variability in resource demand of surgery types. The resulting surgery types (clusters) are thus based on logical features and can be used in master surgical scheduling. The approach is successfully tested on a case study in a regional hospital.

    Optimization Methods for Total Marrow Irradiation using Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy

    Document Overview:
    As part of the conditioning process to prepare the patient for the bone marrow transplant, the patient is treated with total marrow irradiation (TMI). The purpose of TMI is to eliminate the underlying disease and to suppress the recipient's immune systems, thus preventing rejection of new donor stem cells. Designing a treatment plan for TMI poses unique challenges that are not present in other forms of site-specific radiation therapy, for example, head-and-neck and prostate treatments. Specifically, the large site to be treated results in clinical treatments where the patient must be positioned far from the isocenter, as well as often repositioned during treatment, thus increasing uncertainty in delivered dose. Designing TMI treatments with intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) will provide more accurate treatments that can spare healthy tissues while simultaneously delivering the prescribed radiation dose to the bones. To bring the patient closer to isocenter, beam orientation optimization (BOO) will be used to incorporate non-coplanar beams. This work will present and discuss in detail the difficulties presented by TMI treatment planning in conjunction with IMRT, as well as the difficulties posed by non-coplanar BOO.

    Document Overview:
    There are two general classes of TLDs: generic TLDs (gTLD) and country code TLDs (ccTLD). The ccTLDs are assigned to both countries and regions. For example, the URL www.aaa.ug indicates a domain registered in Uganda, while www.bbb.eu signifies European domains. The World Wide Web has undergone yet another shift to the array of top-level domain (TLD) names available for use. TLDs are the set of letters or codes found to the right of the final dot of a URL such as dot-com or dot-gov.

    While there are many phone manufacturers, only a handful of companies provide cellular services. The selection process has a few chicken and egg components. For example, if you want an iPhone, services such as BlackBerry and Microsoft do not support it. If you want to use Sprint, make certain that it supports the device you want. For example, Apple's new iPads are only supported by AT&T and Verizon. In fact there are two different models - one for AT&T and another for Verizon.

    So since our collections are primarily digital, we should probably concentrate on identifying, evaluating, and promoting them to our clients. The bare identification offered by traditional cataloging hardly seems adequate. For example, it doesn't identify the $%@#$% licensing restrictions under which individual items struggle to reach users. Access to pbooks primarily operated under one restriction, namely whether someone else was already using it.

    Document Overview:
    Dedicated software systems hold a character of individual solutions that entail particular problems with regard to their cost estimation. Thus for many years now objective and reliable approaches to the cost estimation of such systems have been sought out so that they could provide the possibility to make rational investment decisions concerning those systems. The purpose of this paper is to bring in the approach to cost estimation of dedicated software systems that has been recently growing in global popularity, using it as a background for presenting conclusions resulting from practical verification of author's own model of dedicated software system cost estimation based on that approach.
