    • Analysis of Erlang transfer lines 

      Dönmez, Nebahat (Bilkent University, 1997)
      Transfer lines are widely used in the modeling and analysis of complex production systems. The literature is mostly devoted to the analysis of transfer lines with exponential processing times. However, most of the time ...
    • Analytical loading models and control strategies in flexible manufacturing systems: a comparative study 

      Kırkavak, Nureddin (Bilkent University, 1990)
      There are three problem areas in designing and implementing a manufacturing line : the part family selection and grouping, system configuration and toolings and the operational control of manufacturing. The manufacturing ...
    • Design and analysis of just-in-time production systems 

      Oğuz, Ceyda (Bilkent University, 1988)
      Just-in-Time (JIT) production systems have initially appeared in the Japanese manufacturing environment due to the scarcity of their critical resources. The main aim in JIT production systems is to eliminate waste. ...
    • Design and implementation of an MRP-II system in electronics industry 

      Cankat, A Burç (Bilkent University, 1991)
      Manufacturing Resource Planning (MRP II) system is a modern production planning and control method that is relatively new in our country. In today's competitive and continuously improving industrial scene MRP II ...
    • Facility location, capacity acquisition and technology selection models for manufacturing strategy planning 

      Verter, Vedat (Bilkent University, 1993)
      The primary aim of this dissertation research is to contribute to the manufacturing strategy planning process. The firm is perceived as a value chain which can be represented by a production-distribution network. Structural ...
    • A hybrid model for designing attributes sampling plans 

      Sanin, M Başar (Bilkent University, 1994)
      In single sampling plans by attributes, statistical and economical considerations have traditionally been discussed separately. An approach taking into account both considerations simultaneously would be more useful in ...
    • M/M/1 polling models with two finite queues 

      Daşçı, Abdullah (Bilkent University, 1995)
      Polling models are special kinds of queueing models where multiple-customer type single-stage is considered. In this thesis, first an overview and a classification of polling models will be given. Then two-costomer one ...
    • Modelling and analysis of pull production systems 

      Kırkavak, Nureddin (Bilkent University, 1995)
      A variety of production systems appearing in the literature are reviewed in order to develop a classification scheme for production systems. A number of pull production systems appearing in the classification are found ...
    • On the distribution of throughput of transfer lines 

      Deler, Bahar (Bilkent University, 1998)
      A transfer line corresponds to a manufacturing system consisting of a number of work stations in series integrated into one system by a common transfer mechanism and a control system. There is a vast literature on the ...
    • Order quantity and pricing decisions in linear cost inventory systems 

      Polatoglu, Lutfi Hakan (Bilkent University, 1992)
      The primary concern of this study is to reveal the fundamental characteristics of the linear cost inventory model where price is a decision variable in addition to procurement quantity. In this context, the optimal ...
    • Serial production lines under pull environment 

      Eskigün, Erdem (Bilkent University, 1996)
      Uie aim of this thesis is to evaliuite the performance of transfer lines under pull environment. In this study, we have modelled a two-stage trcuisfer line separated by finite buffers by using Markov-Chcun representation. ...
    • Single machine scheduling problems: early-tardy penalties 

      Oguz, Ceyda (Bilkent University, 1993)
      The primary concern of this dissertation is to analyze single machine total earliness and tardiness scheduling problems with different due dates and to develop both a dynamic programming formulation for its exact solution ...
