    Advances in Managing Humanitarian Operations
    Springer | Operations Research & Decision Theory | January 18, 2016 | ISBN-10: 3319244167 | 283 pages | pdf | 7.2 mb

    Editors: Zobel, Christopher W., Altay, Nezih, Haselkorn, Mark P. (Eds.)
    First book to examine the three distinct problem areas of disaster relief, development aid, and community aid
    First book to examine these problems from a service operations perspective
    Editors are among the most prominent researchers in the field, as are many of the contributors

    This volume provides a survey of current research problems and results in humanitarian operations research. Additionally, it discusses existing applications of humanitarian operations research, and considers new research efforts that clearly extend existing research and applications. The book is divided into three sections that provide an overview of the subject, a look at the theory, and an examination of applications.
    The overview section presents chapters on modeling approaches and metrics to evaluate nonprofit operations; chief findings of fieldwork research in disaster response logistics; the use of cash as a form of relief; and measuring markets that supply cash-based humanitarian interventions.
    The theory section includes chapters that examine the partner proliferation problem in disaster response networks; a case study of humanitarian logistics that examines how humanitarian culture informs change adoption; and a look at the current state of the art for information visibility in humanitarian operations.
    Finally, the application section focuses on blood products, vaccines, and food assistance, with individual chapters on efficient inventorying and distribution of blood products during disasters; a detailed look at modeling in the context of the vaccine supply chain; a framework for achieving equity, effectiveness, and efficiency in food bank operations; and a spatio-temporal vulnerability assessment of the resilience of a population affected by sudden lack of food.
