Integration of shipment scheduling decisions for forward and reverse channels in a recoverable item system
(Elsevier, 201211)In this paper, we consider the problem of finding the economic shipment quantities of failed and recovered items between a central depot and a collection center to coordinate the flow in both ways. Our model takes an ... 
Interaction of design and operational parameters in periodic review kanban systems
(Taylor & Francis, 2003)In this study, we propose an analytical model to determine the withdrawal cycle length, kanban sizes and number of kanbans simultaneously in a multiitem, multistage, multiperiod, capacitated periodic review kanban system. ... 
An intermodal multicommodity routing problem with scheduled services
(2012)We study a multicommodity routing problem faced by an intermodal service operator that uses ground and maritime transportation. Given a planning horizon, a set of commodities to be picked up at their release times and to ... 
Inventory and coordination issues with two substitutable products
(Elsevier, 201003)This study considers a two level supply chain in a newsboy setting with two substitutable products. Demands for the two products are assumed independent as long as both are available. If, however, a product stocks out, ... 
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 ... 
Inventory theory
(Taylor & Francis, 2016)Inventory theory is concerned with management of the quantity and timing of the replenishment of assets typically stored to satisfy future demands. In this chapter, we introduce the fundamentals of inventory theory and the ... 
Investigating the influence of builtup edge on forces and surface roughness in micro scale orthogonal machining of titanium alloy Ti6Al4V
(Elsevier, 2016)The edge geometry of cutting tools directly influences the chip formation mechanism in micromechanical machining, where the edge radius and uncut chip thickness are in the same order of magnitude. An uncut chip thickness ... 
Investigating the influence of friction conditions on finite element simulation of microscale machining with the presence of builtup edge
(Springer, 2017)In micromachining, the uncut chip thickness is less than the cutting tool edge radius, which results in a large negative effective rake angle. Depending on the material properties, this large negative rake angle promotes ... 
Investigation of the effect of cutting tool edge radius on material separation due to ductile fracture in machining
(Elsevier, 200907)This paper investigates the interaction between cutting tool edge radius and material separation due to ductile fracture based on Atkins' model of machining. Atkins' machining model considers the energy needed for material ... 
Investments viewed as growth processes
(Taylor & Francis, 1995)For modeling investment decision situations, we present a mathematical basis that views the cash flow sequences as growth processes. We first emphasize the pedagogical value of the basic model by showing that all traditionally ... 
Is better nuclear weapon detection capability justified?
(Walter de Gruyter GmbH, 2011)In this paper, we present a decision tree model for evaluation of the next generation radiation portal technology (Advanced Spectroscopic Portals or ASPs) to scan containers entering the United States nonintrusively against ... 
Job shop scheduling with beam search
(Elsevier Science B.V., Amsterdam, Netherlands, 1999)Beam Search is a heuristic method for solving optimization problems. It is an adaptation of the branch and bound method in which only some nodes are evaluated in the search tree. At any level, only the promising nodes are ... 
Joint cell loading and scheduling approach to cellular manufacturing systems
(Taylor & Francis, 20110131)A hierarchical multiobjective heuristic algorithm and pricing mechanism are developed to first determine the cell loading decisions, and then lot sizes for each item and to obtain a sequence of items comprising the group ... 
Joint decisions on inventory replenishment and emission reduction investment under different emission regulations
(Taylor & Francis, 20140916)Carbon emission regulation policies have emerged as mechanisms to control firms’ carbon emissions. To meet regulatory requirements, firms can make changes in their production planning decisions or invest in green technologies. ... 
Joint gateway selection, transmission slot assignment, routing and power control for wireless mesh networks
(Elsevier, 201307)Wireless mesh networks (WMNs) provide cost effective solutions for setting up a communications network over a certain geographic area. In this paper, we study strategic problems of WMNs such as selecting the gateway nodes ... 
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 ... 
Joint mixability of some integer matrices
(Elsevier B.V.Elsevier BV, 2016)We study the problem of permuting each column of a given matrix to achieve minimum maximal row sum or maximum minimal row sum, a problem of interest in probability theory and quantitative finance where quantiles of a random ... 
A joint production and transportation planning problem with heterogeneous vehicles
(2014)We consider a manufacturer's planning problem to schedule order production and transportation to respective destinations. The manufacturer in this setting can use two vehicle types for outbound shipments. The first type ... 
A joint replenishment policy with individual control and constant size orders
(Taylor & Francis, 2010)We consider inventory systems with multiple items under stochastic demand and jointly incurred order setup costs. The problem is to determine the replenishment policy that minimises the total expected ordering, inventory ... 
knodedisjoint hopconstrained survivable networks: polyhedral analysis and branch and cut
(SpringerVerlag France, 2018)Given a graph with weights on the edges, a set of origin and destination pairs of nodes, and two integers L ≥ 2 and k ≥ 2, the knodedisjoint hopconstrained network design problem is to find a minimum weight subgraph of ...
