Effect of load, processing time and due date variation on the effectiveness of scheduling rules
(Taylor & Francis, 2002)In real manufacturing environments, variations in production factors (i.e. pro cessing time, demand, duedates) are inevitable facts. All these dynamic changes, together with random disturbances (e.g. machine breakdowns) ... 
An efficient algorithm for the single machine total tardiness problem
(Taylor & Francis, 2001)This paper presents an exact algorithm for the single machine total tardiness problem (1// L T;). We present a new synthesis of various results from the literature which leads to a compact and concise representation of job ... 
An efficient optimal solution to the twohoist nowait cyclic scheduling problem
(Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences (I N F O R M S), 2005)Hoist scheduling is a typical problem in the operation of electroplating systems. The cyclic scheduling policy is widely used in these systems in industry. Research on hoist scheduling has focused on the cyclic problem to ... 
Efficient simulated annealing based solution approaches to the competitive single and multiple allocation hub location problems
(Elsevier, 2018)Hub location problems (HLPs) constitute an important class of problems in logistics with numerous applications in passenger/cargo transportation, postal services, telecommunications, etc. This paper addresses the competitive ... 
Endogenous effects of hubbing on flow intensities
(Springer, 2016)Location of hub facilities and the allocation decisions in transport networks endogenously affect both the flow intensities and the transportation costs. Since the introduction of the hub location problem to the operations ... 
Energy based investigation of process parameters while drilling carbon fiber reinforced polymers
(Elsevier B.V., 2016)Carbon fiber reinforced polymers (CFRPs) are widely used in the aerospace industry due to their light weight, high strength, and low thermal conductivity. Drilling is a critical process that affects the quality of CFRP ... 
Energy management in microgrids with plugin electric vehicles, distributed energy resources and smart home appliances
(Springer, Singapore, 2015)Smart Grid is transforming the way energy is being generated and distributed today, leading to the development of environmentfriendly, economic and efficient technologies such as plugin electric vehicles (PEVs), distributed ... 
Energy management in microgrids with plugin electric vehicles, distributed energy resources and smart home appliances
(Springer Verlag, 2015)Smart Grid is transforming the way energy is being generated and distributed today, leading to the development of environmentfriendly, economic and efficient technologies such as plugin electric vehicles (PEVs), distributed ... 
Energy minimizing vehicle routing problem
(Springer, 2007)This paper proposes a new cost function based on distance and load of the vehicle for the Capacitated Vehicle Routing Problem. The vehiclerouting problem with this new loadbased cost objective is called the Energy ... 
An EOQ model with multiple suppliers and random capacity
(2006)We consider an EOQ model with multiple suppliers that have random capacities, which leads to uncertain yield in orders. A given order is fully received from a supplier if the order quantity is less than the supplier's ... 
Equational characterization of Boolean function classes
(Elsevier, 2000)Several noteworthy classes of Boolean functions can be characterized by algebraic identities (e.g. the class of positive functions consists of all functions f satisfying the identity f(x) V f(y) V f(x V y) = f(x V y)). We ... 
Equilibrium in an ambiguityaverse meanvariance investors market
(Elsevier, 20140916)In a financial market composed of n risky assets and a riskless asset, where short sales are allowed and mean–variance investors can be ambiguity averse, i.e., diffident about mean return estimates where confidence is ... 
An equipment replacement problem with dynamic production planning and capacity considerations
(Taylor & Francis, 1996)In this paper, we propose a 01 integer programming formulation for an equipment replacement problem in which the demand of a product varies from period to period and different types of equipment with different production ... 
Equitable decision making approaches over allocations of multiple benefits to multiple entities
(Elsevier, 2018)In this study, we develop decision support tools for policy makers that will help them make choices among a set of allocation alternatives. We assume that alternatives are evaluated based on their benefits to different ... 
Escaping local optima in a class of multiagent distributed optimization problems: a boosting function approach
(IEEE, 2014)We address the problem of multiple local optima commonly arising in optimization problems for multiagent systems, where objective functions are nonlinear and nonconvex. For the class of coverage control problems, we propose ... 
Estimation of a change point in a hazard function based on censored data
(Springer New York LLC, 2003)The hazard function plays an important role in reliability or survival studies since it describes the instantaneous risk of failure of items at a time point, given that they have not failed before. In some real life ... 
Evaluation of army corps artillery ammunition supply systems via simulation
(IEEE, 2002)The purpose of this paper is to discuss the evaluation of different alternatives for the implementation of Turkish army corps artillery ammunition supply system. The objective is to see whether the alternative systems ... 
Evaluation of army corps food supply system using simulation
(IEEE, 2003)The Food Supply System is one of the main elements of the Army Logistics System. The ultimate objective in a food supply system is to provide the food at the right time and in the right amount at the right place. If this ... 
Evaluation of NO2 column variations over the atmosphere of Kazakhstan using satellite data
(SPIE, 2018)Tropospheric NO2 concentrations obtained from the measurements of the Ozone Monitoring Instrument on board the NASA Aura satellite from 2005 to 2016 were studied to identify major NO2 emission hot spots, trends, and seasonal ... 
An evaluative study of operation grouping policies in an FMS
(Kluwer Academic Publishers, 2003)The increased use of flexible manufacturing systems to provide customers with diversified products efficiently has created a significant set of operational challenges for managers. This technology poses a number of decision ...
