Quality is key to success in U.S. space and missile defense programs, but quality problems exist that have endangered entire missions along with less-visible problems leading to unnecessary repair, scrap, rework, and stoppage; long delays; and millions in cost growth. Tthis report examined quality problems related to parts and manufacturing processes and materials across the DoD and NASA. The report assessed: (1) the extent to which parts quality problems affect those agencies' space and missile defense programs; (2) causes of any problems; and (3) initiatives to prevent, detect, and mitigate

This title describes techniques newly available in SAS to find global optima using intelligent search techniques that are modeled after biological or physical processes. These techniques are flexible and robust, and are applicable to problems where traditional calculus-based methods do not apply or are too difficult or complicated. With these procedures, you can solve combinatorial problems, nonlinear function optimization problems, mixed integer problems, sequencing problems, and multiple objective Pareto optimization problems. This title serves as the primary documentation for the new 9.1 Ge

Discrete optimization problems are everywhere, from traditional operations research planning problems, such as scheduling, facility location, and network design; to computer science problems in databases; to advertising issues in viral marketing. Yet most such problems are NP-hard. Thus unless P = NP, there are no efficient algorithms to find optimal solutions to such problems. This book shows how to design approximation algorithms: efficient algorithms that find provably near-optimal solutions. The book is organized around central algorithmic techniques for designing approximation algorithms,

In 2000, Congress asked for a review of the Chemical Safety Boardżs (CSB) effectiveness in carrying out its mission. The report cited problems with CSBżs governance, mgmt., policies, and procedures. It was recommended that CSB obtain the services of an existing office of Inspector General (IG). Since FY 2001, 3 IGs -- from FEMA, DHS, and EPA -- have provided oversight to CSB. This report examined: (1) how CSB has responded to the recommendations regarding CSBżs investigative gap, data quality problems, human capital problems, and accountability and mgmt. problems for meeting its mission req
