    • A new bounding mechanism for the CNC machine scheduling problems with controllable processing times 

      Kayan, R. K.; Akturk, M. S. (Elsevier, 2005)
      In this study, we determine the upper and lower bounds for the processing time of each job under controllable machining conditions. The proposed bounding scheme is used to find a set of discrete efficient points on the ...
    • Robotic cell scheduling with operational flexibility 

      Akturk, M. S.; Gultekin, H.; Karasan, O. E. (Elsevier, 2005)
      In this paper, we study the problem of two-machine, identical parts robotic cell scheduling with operational flexibility. We assume that every part to be processed has a number of operations to be completed in these two ...
    • Scheduling in a three-machine robotic flexible manufacturing cell 

      Gultekin, H.; Akturk, M. S.; Karasan, O. E. (Elsevier, 2007)
      In this study, we consider a flexible manufacturing cell (FMC) processing identical parts on which the loading and unloading of machines are made by a robot. The machines used in FMCs are predominantly CNC machines and ...
    • Scheduling in robotic cells: process flexibility and cell layout 

      Gultekin, H.; Akturk, M. S.; Karasan, O. E. (Taylor & Francis, 2008)
      The focus of this study is the identical parts robotic cell scheduling problem with m machines under the assumption of process and operational flexibility. A direct consequence of this assumption is a new robot move cycle ...
