    • 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 ...
    • Cyclic scheduling of a 2-machine robotic cell with tooling constraints 

      Gultekin, H.; Akturk, M. S.; Karasan, O. E. (Elsevier, 2006)
      In this study, we deal with the robotic cell scheduling problem with two machines and identical parts. In an ideal FMS, CNC machines are capable of performing all the required operations as long as the required tools are ...
    • 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 ...
    • 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 ...
    • Robotic assembly line design with tool changes 

      Tula, Adnan (Bilkent University, 2009)
      This thesis is focused on assembly line design problems in robotic cells. The mixed-model assembly line design problem that we study has several subproblems such as allocating operations to the stations in the robotic ...
    • 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 ...
