    • Assembly line balancing using genetic algorithms 

      Tanyer, Muzaffer (Bilkent University, 1997)
      For the last few decades, the genetic algorithms (GAs) have been used as a kind of heuristic in many areas of manufacturing. Facility layout, scheduling, process planning, and assembly line balancing are some of the areas ...
    • An evolutionary basic design tool 

      Akbulut, Dilek (Bilkent University, 2010)
      As a creative act, design aims at achieving innovative solutions to fulfill the requirements provided in the problem definition. In recent years, computational methods began to be used not only in design presentation but ...
    • A genetic algorithm-based search for parametric reform alternatives for the Turkish pension system : 2005-2060 

      Alparslan, Mustafa Artun (Bilkent University, 2005)
      In this thesis, we search for parametric reform alternatives so as to achieve a balance in the long term accumulated difference between pension expenditures and revenues of the SSI, the largest pension fund in Turkey, ...
    • Multicriteria inventory classification using a genetic algorithm 

      Guvenir, H. A.; Erel, E. (Elsevier, 1998)
      One of the application areas of genetic algorithms is parameter optimization. This paper addresses the problem of optimizing a set of parameters that represent the weights of criteria, where the sum of all weights is 1. A ...
    • Two novel multiway circuit partitioning algorithms using relaxed locking 

      Dasdan, A.; Aykanat, C. (IEEE, 1997)
      All the previous Kernighan-Lin-based (KL-based) circuit partitioning algorithms employ the locking mechanism, which enforces each cell to move exactly once per pass. In this paper, we propose two novel approaches for ...
