Auction Based Models for Ticket Allocation Problem in IT Service Delivery Industry

Prasad M. Deshpande, Dinesh Garg, N. Rama Suri
2008 2008 IEEE International Conference on Services Computing  
In this paper, we study the service request (ticket) allocation problem which arises in every IT service delivery organization. We refer to this problem as Ticket Allocation Problem (TAP).  ...  Through simulation experiments, we show that the auction based pull model results in higher efficiency than the push model.  ...  Ticket Allocation Problem (TAP) In a typical IT service delivery organization, a significant fraction of the technical staff is engaged in operational services such as: IT infrastructure management services  ...

Iterative Combinatorial Auction for Carrier Collaboration in Logistics Services

Hamidreza Mehrizi, Chun Wang
2013 2013 IEEE International Conference on Systems, Man, and Cybernetics  
In this thesis, we propose an auction-based model for carrier collaboration in transportation services.  ...  We first present a centralized carrier collaboration problem model in which a central entity has all required information to compute an optimal solution.  ...  In chapter 4, we proposed a practical auction -based CCP model for decentralized framework.  ...

A Dynamic Pricing Model for Unifying Programmatic Guarantee and Real-Time Bidding in Display Advertising

Bowei Chen, Shuai Yuan, Jun Wang
2014 Proceedings of 20th ACM SIGKDD Conference on Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining - ADKDD'14  
This paper proposes a mathematical model that allocates and prices the future impressions between real-time auctions and guaranteed contracts.  ...  We evaluate our method with RTB datasets and find that the model adopts different strategies in allocation and pricing according to the level of competition.  ...  The same allocation problem is discussed in [4] by using stochastic control models.  ...

On the tradeoff between privacy and efficiency: A bidding mechanism for scheduling non-commercial services

Chun Wang, Farnaz Dargahi, Mohammad Fozlul Haque Bhuiyan
2012 Computers in industry (Print)  
In this paper, we present a bidding-based mechanism which aims at generating high quality schedules and, at the same time, protecting customers' privacy.  ...  We show that, under the proposed bidding procedure, myopic bidding is the dominant strategy for customers.  ...  However, in non-commercial services industries, such as scientific facility services, government services and healthcare services, for social economic and political reasons, service providers cannot use  ...
