    • Automated robotic assembly line design with unavailability periods and tool changes 

      Gultekin, H.; Tula, A.; Akturk, M. S. (Inderscience Publishers, 2016)
      We focus on an assembly line design problem of a fully automated robotic spot-welding line. Different from existing studies, we take the prescheduled unavailability periods, such as lunch and tea breaks, into account ...
    • Balancing of U-type assembly systems using simulated annealing 

      Erel, E.; Sabuncuoğlu İ.; Aksu, B. A. (Taylor & Francis, 2001)
      The paper presents a new simulated annealing (SA)-based algorithm for the assembly line-balancing problem with a U-type con®guration. The proposed algorithm employs an intelligent mechanism to search a large solution space. ...
    • Design of a fully automated robotic spot-welding line 

      Akturk, M. S.; Tula, A.; Gultekin, H. (2011)
      The mixed model assembly line design problem includes allocating operations to the stations in the robotic cell and satisfying the demand and cycle time within a desired interval for each model to be produced. We also ...
    • A methodology for solving single-model, stochastic assembly line balancing problem 

      Sarin, S. C.; Erel, E.; Dar-El, E. M. (Pergamon Press, 1999)
      In this paper, a methodology is developed to solve the single-model, stochastic assembly line balancing problem for the objective of minimizing the total labor cost and the expected incompletion cost arising from tasks not ...
