#### Towards finding global representations of the efficient set in multiple objective mathematical programming

(John Wiley & Sons, 1997)

We propose and justify the proposition that finding truly global representations of the efficient sets of multiple objective mathematical programs is a worthy goal. We summarize the essential elements of a general global ...

#### A goal programming approach to mixed-model assembly line balancing problem

(Elsevier, 1997)

In this paper, a binary goal programming model for the mixed-model assembly line balancing (ALB) problem is developed. The model is based on the concepts developed by Patterson and Albracht [1] and the model of Deckro and ...

#### A new lower bounding scheme for the total weighted tardiness problem

(1998)

We propose a new dominance rule that provides a sufficient condition for local optimality for the 1∥Σw1Ti problem. We prove that if any sequence violates the proposed dominance rule, then switching the violating jobs either ...

#### Integration of reasoning systems in architectural modeling activities

(Elsevier Science, 1998)

In the first phase of a design process, the designer understands the problem and assimilates it to a conceptual framework that is already known to him. Due to the nature of design problems, the reasoning methods and ...

#### A saturated linear dynamical network for approximating maximum clique

(Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 1999-06)

We use a saturated linear gradient dynamical network for finding an approximate solution to the maximum clique problem. We show that for almost all initial conditions, any solution of the network defined on a closed hypercube ...

#### A beam search-based algorithm and evaluation of scheduling approaches for fexible manufacturing systems

(Taylor & Francis, 1998)

This paper presents a new algorithm for the flexible manufacturing system (FMS) scheduling problem. The proposed algorithm is a heuristic based on filtered beam search. It considers finite buffer capacity, routing and ...

#### TELPACK: An Advanced teletraffic analysis package

(1998)

Performance evaluation of computer and communication networks gives rise to teletraffic problems of potentially large dimensionality. We briefly summarize a unifying system theoretic approach to efficient solution of a ...

#### Joint lot sizing and tool management in a CNC environment

(Elsevier, 1999)

We propose a new algorithm to solve lot sizing, tool allocation and machining conditions optimization problems simultaneously to minimize total production cost in a CNC environment. Most of the existing lot sizing and tool ...

#### A hierarchical model for the cell loading problem of cellular manufacturing systems

(Taylor & Francis, 1998)

A hierarchical cell loading approach is proposed to solve the production planning problem in cellular manufacturing systems. Our aim is to minimize the variable cost of production subject to production and inventory balance ...

#### Inventory control under substitutable demand: A stochastic game application

(John Wiley & Sons, 2002)

Substitutable product inventory problem is analyzed using the concepts of stochastic game theory. It is assumed that there are two substitutable products that are sold by different retailers and the demand for each product ...
