Reducing Waiting Times! An Effort to Centralize Campus Security
There has been a surge of student’s intake in engineering colleges for the past decade due to demand-pull effect from the IT sector. However most engineering colleges including FITE is burdened with some infrastructural constraints such as number of entry/exit points of the institute, number of personnel to be hired for each service points for security issues. This has led to long waiting times at such service points inside the campus. Relaxing these measures will lead to partial compromise in security measures inside the campus. This case attempts to frame a solution procedure, which balances both our objectives of reducing waiting times as well as integrating campus security in an effective manner, which is sustainable considering the growth rate of student’s intake in the campus continues.
Expected Learning Outcome
- • Appreciate the application of Operations Research and Information Management System as a combined tool to solve real life problems.
Case Positioning and Setting
The case can be used for ‘E-Governance’ and ‘Urban Operations Research’ course and is useful for students who are intending to specialize in the field of Information Systems Management or Operations Management in a MBA programme.
