Case Studies#

Interval manipulation

This tutorial introduces the use of staircase for manipulating intervals. The ideas demonstrated form the basis for the piso package.

Queue analysis

This case study illustrates the use of staircase for queue analysis, including the exploration of the queue size distribution.

Asset utilisation

This case study demonstrates the use of staircase for quick calculation of asset utilisation over various time periods.

Data leakage

This case study shows how staircase can be used to simplify feature engineering, for machine learning models, while avoiding data leakage.
