  • Srour, F. Jordan; Van De Velde, Steef (2015-10-21)
    Many full truckload pick-up and delivery problems in the intermodal freight container transport industry can be modeled as Asymmetric Traveling Salesman Problems (ATSPs). Several authors have noted that while ATSPs are ...
  • Srour, F. Jordan; Yorke-Smith, Neil (International Foundation for Autonomous Agents and Multiagent Systems, 2017-12-20)
    Case studies report that corruption is not easily combated by policy changes, and that reform policies can have unexpected side-effects in practice. Using agent-based simulation, this paper studies potential anti-corruption ...
  • Srour, F. Jordan; Harb, Hassan; Yorke-Smith, Neil (Springer, 2018-01-03)
    The progress of containers through customs is more often an exercise in negotiation rather than a structured queuing process. As soon as a regulatory process involves negotiation, corruption becomes a factor. Studies by ...
  • Srour, F. Jordan; Lattouf, M. Ghayth; Srour, Issam M. (American Society of Civil Engineers, 2018-01-19)
    Strategic workforce management decisions (e.g., hiring, training, and staffing) have a direct effect on the cost, schedule, and quality of work. This paper presents the preliminary findings of a survey of construction/site ...
  • Srour, F. Jordan; Newton, Diane (2015-10-20)
    Freight planning is an increasingly visible topic in the arena of transportation planning. Freight planning metrics and benchmarks can help state agencies select and assess the impact of improvement projects with respect ...
  • Srour, F. Jordan; Zuidwijk, Rob (Erasmus Research Institute of Management, Erasmus University, 2018-01-08)
    In this paper we derive the worst-case ratio of an online algorithm for the Traveling Salesman Problem (TSP) with two disclosure dates. This problem, a variant of the online TSP with release dates, is characterized by the ...
  • Srour, F. Jordan; Mahr, Tamas; De Weerdt, Mathijs; Zuidwijk, Rob (DUP, 2017-12-21)
    Decision support within transport companies should not only use traditional objective functions, but also reason about qualitative effects on all involved actors. We propose a fuzzy logic rule base that can be used in ...
  • Bazi, Gabriel; El Khoury, John; Srour, F. Jordan (2017-10-12)
    This paper describes a method for using location data to optimize the routing of pavement data collection vehicles. In much of the developed world, pavement testing is performed on a regular basis; the pavement testing ...
  • Srour, F. Jordan; Kiomjian, Daoud; Srour, Issam M. (2016-10-26)
    This paper brings forth from the literature a series of learning curve models and evaluates them through the lens of the construction industry. The review suggests that there is still no consensus on which model provides ...
  • Srour, F. Jordan; Mahr, Tamas; De Weerdt, Mathijs; Zuidwijk, Rob (Erasmus Research Institute of Management (ERIM), Erasmus University Rotterdam, 2018-01-10)
    This paper describes five sets of 33 Mixed Integer Problem instances each, for a total of 165 instances, derived from a real-world full-truckload pick-up and delivery problem with time windows at the Port of Rotterdam. ...
  • Srour, F. Jordan; Lang, Niels; Moonen, Hans M.; Zuidwijk, Rob A. (Erasmus Research Institute of Management, Erasmus University, 2018-01-04)
    Based on a literature survey, we aim to answer our main question: “How should we plan and execute logistics in supply chains that aim to meet today’s requirements, and how can we support such planning and execution using ...
  • Srour, F. Jordan; Nasrallah, Walid F. (2018-01-09)
    This paper introduces a new algorithm for enumerating regular Boolean functions. This algorithm exploits the equivalence between regular Boolean functions and positive threshold functions that can be used to represent ...
  • Srour, F. Jordan; Ketter, Wolfgang (2015-10-20)
  • Srour, F. Jordan; Van Oosterhout, Marcel; Van Baalen, Peter; Zuidwijk, Rob (Transportation Research Board, 2017-12-19)
  • El Khoury, John; Srour, F. Jordan; Bazi, Gabriel (SSRN, 2017-07-07)
    Federal laws require regular condition reporting for portions of the national highway system. Most agencies use instrumented vehicles to collect data on and report the required information. The routing of these vehicles, ...
  • Srour, F. Jordan; Jabr, Nabih (2018-01-19)
    This document reports data from the Lebanese red Cross regarding calls received for ambulance services in 2016. The primary aim of this report is to illustrate facets of the pre-hospital care system in Lebanon via data ...
  • Srour, F. Jordan; Kiomjian, Daoud; Srour, Issam (American Society of Civil Engineers, 2018-01-02)
    Several studies recognize the existence of a relationship between learning and experience, on one hand, and productivity and quality of work, on the other hand. This paper examines, through the use of a case study, the ...
  • Srour, F. Jordan; Agatz, Niels; Oppen, Johan (2016-10-26)
    In many real-life routing problems there is more uncertainty with respect to the required timing of the service than with respect to the service locations. We focus on a pickup and delivery problem with time windows in ...
  • Srour, F. Jordan; Srour, Issam; Lattouf, M. Ghayth (2017-12-18)
    Purpose The construction industry is dynamic and often unregulated due to its complex, project-based nature. This makes the task of implementing human resource management (HRM) functions more difficult than in other ...
  • Srour, F. Jordan; Badr, Nabil Georges (SCITEPRESS, 2018-01-22)
