TL;DR: In this article, the authors developed an analytical model that explores how important supply chain parameters affect the cost savings to be realized from collaborative initiatives such as vendor-managed inventory (VMI).
Abstract: This paper develops an analytical model that explores how important supply chain parameters affect the cost savings to be realized from collaborative initiatives such as vendor-managed inventory (VMI). Results from the model show that the optimal replenishment frequency with VMI is greater than that without VMI, but the optimal shortage quantity and the optimal order quantity for buyer with VMI is smaller than those for buyer without VMI. Results also show that under a certain condition, the total inventory cost with VMI is lower than that without VMI and these benefits are disproportionally distributed between buyers and suppliers.

TL;DR: The driving force for the advancement of m-health solutions was researched and the most critical factor for the success ofm-health was suggested.
Abstract: The potential benefit of mobile and wireless information technology for healthcare service delivery, improving patient safety and reducing cost is increasingly recognized and emphasized. To contributing to the knowledge about critical factors determining the success of mobile health (m-Health) solutions, this study researched the driving force for the advancement of m-health solutions. The current advancement of m-health was reviewed. The challenges for developing and deploying m-health applications were addressed. The paper concluded in suggesting the most critical factor for the success of m-health. The method used for the study was literature research, market scan and analysis.

TL;DR: In this article, the authors discussed the current market practice of RTB advertising, presented the key roles and typical business processes in RTB markets, and summarized the current research progresses in the existing literature.
Abstract: Real-time bidding (RTB) is an emerging and promising business model for online computational advertising in the age of big data. Based on analysis of massive amounts of Cookie data generated by Internet users, RTB advertising has the potential of identifying in real-time the characteristic and interest of the target audience in each ad impression, automatically delivering best-matched ads, and optimizing their prices via auction-based programmatic buying scheme. RTB has significantly changed online advertising, evolving from the traditional pattern of "media buying" and "ad-slot buying" to "targetaudience buying", and is expected to be the standard business model for online advertising in the future. In this paper, we discussed the current market practice of RTB advertising, presented the key roles and typical business processes in RTB markets, and summarized the current research progresses in the existing literature. The aim of this paper is to provide useful reference and guidance for future works.

TL;DR: In this paper, the authors present an integrated survey of the field of optimal trajectory planning for train operations, and a short discussion of some open topics in the field is given, including analytical solutions and numerical optimization.
Abstract: Because of the rising energy prices and environmental concerns, the calculation of energy-optimal reference trajectories for trains is significant for energy saving. On the other hand, with the development automatic train operation (ATO), the optimal trajectory planning is significant to the performance of train operation. In this paper, we present an integrated survey of this field. First, a nonlinear continuous-time train model and a continuous-space model of train operations are described, after which the optimal trajectory planning problem is formulated based on these two models. The various approaches in the literature to calculate the reference trajectory are reviewed and categorized into two groups: analytical solutions and numerical optimization. Finally, a short discussion of some open topics in the field of optimal trajectory planning for train operations are given.

TL;DR: In this article, the authors proposed a software tool for optimal integrated motorway network traffic control including mainstream traffic flow control (MTFC), which is applied to a large-scale motorway ring road.
Abstract: Summary form only given. The continuously increasing daily traffic congestions on motorway networks around the world call for innovative control measures that would drastically improve the current traffic conditions. Mainstream traffic flow control (MTFC) is proposed as a novel and efficient motorway traffic management tool, and its possible implementation and principal impact on traffic flow efficiency is analysed. Variable speed limits, suitably operated and enforced, are considered as one (out of several possible) way(s) for MTFC realisation, either as a stand-alone measure or in combination with ramp metering. A computationally efficient software tool for optimal integrated motorway network traffic control including MTFC is applied to a large-scale motorway ring-road. It is demonstrated via several investigated control scenarios that traffic flow can be substantially improved via MTFC with or without integration with coordinated ramp metering actions.
