Optimal break times improve work performance, study shows

Optimal break times improve work performance, study shows

Workers who perform routine tasks do so faster and with fewer errors if they take breaks at the right times, a Mizzou Engineering team has found. And those optimal break times depend on the intensity of the task. Jung Hyup Kim, an associate professor in Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering, and Vitor De Oliveira Vargas, [...]
Smart appointment system could decrease patient wait time

Smart appointment system could decrease patient wait time

We’ve all been there. You schedule a doctor’s appointment for 10 a.m. and show up on time only to sit in the waiting room for 45 minutes. This not only frustrates patients, it also costs clinics money. That’s why a Mizzou Engineer has developed a scheduling system that uses machine learning to more efficiently book [...]
