Dr. Eunshin Byon

Dr. Eunshin Byon is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Industrial and Operations Engineering at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, USA.  She received her Ph.D. degree in Industrial and Systems Engineering from the Texas A&M University, College Station, USA, and joined the University of Michigan in 2011.

Importance Sampling for Reliability Evaluation with Stochastic Computer Models (12-1:30pm)
ABSTRACT:

Importance sampling has been used to improve the efficiency of simulations where the simulation output is uniquely determined, given a fixed input. We extend the theory of importance sampling to estimate a system’s reliability with stochastic simulations. Thanks to the advance of computing power, stochastic computer models are employed in many applications to represent a complex system behavior. More

 Data-driven Modeling and Analysis for Wind Power Systems (1:30-3pm)
ABSTRACT:

To quantify and minimize the uncertainties in the design and operational stage, we model and analyze the dependency of wind turbine responses (e.g., power generation, loads and condition monitoring sensor measurement) on operating conditions and the interactions among turbines. Our research entails several areas… More

Healthcare and the Environment: Emissions and Effects of Surgical Models and their Material Use

The growing field of sustainability research endeavors to confront a fundamental challenge of our society- how  do we streamline our current consumption while simultaneously ensuring we can achieve our future requirements?In no area is this more evident than US healthcare. Spending on healthcare has reached nearly 18% of the USGDP. More

Seminar: Labor Cost Accounting for Small Differences in Operating Room Time @ Hackerman Hall B-17
Feb 4 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

Labor Cost Accounting for Small Differences in Operating Room Time Such as From Lean Methods

Over 25 years, Prof. Dexter & colleagues have studied the health system of anesthesia and
surgical delivery, from the lowest level of using sensor information for making changes
minute to minute through the upper level of health policy. Join his talk to learn
how there can be accurate cost prediction for the impact of structural and operating
room architectural changes that result in small changes in operating room times.
