    • An analysis of cyclic scheduling problems in robot centered cells 

      Yildiz, S.; Karasan, O .E.; Akturk, M. S. (2012)
      The focus of this study is a robot centered cell consisting of m computer numerical control (CNC) machines producing identical parts. Two pure cycles are singled out and further investigated as prominent cycles in minimizing ...
    • An analysis of pure robotic cycles 

      Yıldız, Serdar (Bilkent University, 2008)
      This thesis is focused on scheduling problems in robotic cells consisting of a number of CNC machines producing identical parts. We consider two different cell layouts which are in-line robotic cells and robot centered ...
    • Bicriteria robotic cell scheduling 

      Gultekin, H.; Akturk, M. S.; Karasan, O. E. (Springer, 2008)
      This paper considers the scheduling problems arising in two- and three-machine manufacturing cells configured in a flowshop which repeatedly produces one type of product and where transportation of the parts between the ...
    • Bicriteria robotic cell scheduling with controllable processing times 

      Yildiz, S.; Akturk, M. S.; Karasan, O. E. (Taylor & Francis, 2011)
      The current study deals with a bicriteria scheduling problem arising in an m-machine robotic cell consisting of CNC machines producing identical parts. Such machines by nature possess the process flexibility of altering ...
    • Bicriteria robotic operation allocation in a flexible manufacturing cell 

      Gultekin, H.; Akturk, M. S.; Karasan, O. E. (Elsevier, 2010)
      Consider a manufacturing cell of two identical CNC machines and a material handling robot. Identical parts requesting the completion of a number of operations are to be produced in a cyclic scheduling environment through ...
    • An integrated process planning approach for CNC machine tools 

      Aktürk, M. S.; Avcı, S. (Springer-Verlag, 1996)
      In view of the high investment and tooling cost of a CNC machining centre, the cutting and idle times should be optimised by considering the tool consumption and the non-machining time cost components. In this paper, we ...
    • Multiple part-type scheduling in flexible robotic cells 

      Batur, Gül Didem (Bilkent University, 2009)
      This thesis considers the scheduling problem arising in two-machine manufacturing cells which repeatedly produce a set of multiple part-types, and where transportation of the parts between the machines is performed by a ...
    • Pure cycles in flexible robotic cells 

      Gultekin, H.; Karasan O. E.; Akturk, M. S. (Elsevier, 2009)
      In this study, an m-machine flexible robotic manufacturing cell consisting of CNC machines is considered. The flexibility of the machines leads to a new class of robot move cycles called the pure cycles. We first model the ...
    • Scheduling in a three-machine flexible robotic cell 

      Gultekin H.; Akturk, M.S.; Karasan O.E. (2006)
      In this study, a three-machine flexible robotic manufacturing cell in which the CNC machines are used is considered. These machines are highly flexible and are capable of performing several different operations. Each machine ...
    • Scheduling in flexible robotic manufacturing cells 

      Gültekin, Hakan (Bilkent University, 2006)
      The focus of this thesis is the scheduling problems arising in robotic cells which consist of a number of machines and a material handling robot. The machines used in such systems for metal cutting industries are ...
