Marko Boon - Projects

Statlab
This is the biggest project Michel Vollebregt and I have been working on. Statlab a program which simulates a process in a factory. The user has to improve this process. First he has to setup a screening experiment, in order to find the factors that influence the process. Then he has to find the best settings for the factors using the method of the steepest ascent.

Cow
In modern dairy industry automatic barns have been developed. The cows are fed and milked automatically. This program lets the user develop an automatic barn. Then it calculates all kinds of performance measures, like the number of cows that are waiting to be fed or milked. The barn is modelled as a queueing network with 6 stations. The cows are the ''customers'' in the network.

Q
This is an applet which calculates all sorts of performance measures of common queues, like the M/M/1, M/G/1 and so on.

Box
This is a statistical Java applet. The user has to improve a production process by changing the values of the input factors. Then a demonstration is given of the Box method, which tries to improve the same process. This application is in Dutch only.

StatApplets
On this page you will find some small, interactive Java applets that help to understand a particular statistical topic better. At this moment there are two applets. The first is an applet which is about Statistical Quality Control. It calculates the Cp and the Cpk, while the user can change all kinds of parameters.
The second applet is an applet which draws distribution functions. The user can modify the parameters and see their effect on the shape of the function.

Hospital 2000
This is another Java applet. It is a tool which can be used to calculate the number of beds that hospitals need for different specialties. It has some nice graphical options. The Java Plugin version 1.2 or higher is needed.

LaTeX/MiKTeX
Wil Kortsmit and I have composed a CD-ROM with a LaTeX distribution, GhostView, WinEdt and more. This page contains some information about this project, as well as general information about LaTeX.

TrafficJam3D
The user chooses an intersection (existing in Eindhoven) and determines settings like which signals get green light at the same time and for how long. Then the settings are being simulated and compared to settings determined by a mathematical heuristic algorithm. The program contains a real-time simulation so the user can really see his settings.
