Partmachine grouping using a multiobjective cluster analysis
(1996)In the existing literature, the partfamily formation problem is handled either by the coding systems or the cluster analysis. In this study, we propose a new method that will consider both design and manufacturing attributes ... 
A pathbased approach for hazmat transport network design
(Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences (I N F O R M S), 2008)The people living and working around the roads used for hazardous material (hazmat) shipments face the risk of suffering undesirable consequences of an accident. The main responsibility to mitigate the hazmat transport ... 
A penalty continuation method for the ℓ∞ solution of overdetermined linear systems
(Springer Netherlands, 1998)A new algorithm for the ℓ∞ solution of overdetermined linear systems is given. The algorithm is based on the application of quadratic penalty functions to a primal linear programming formulation of the ℓ∞ problem. The ... 
Performance bounds on optimal fixed prices
(2013)We consider the problem of selling a fixed stock of items over a finite horizon when the buyers arrive following a Poisson process. We obtain a general lower bound on the performance of using a fixed price rather than ... 
Performance evaluation models for singleitem periodic pull production systems
(Palgrave Macmillan, 1996)A number of pull production systems reported in the literature are found to be equivalent to a tandem queue so that existing accurate tandemqueue approximation methods can be used to evaluate such systems. In this study, ... 
The periodic vehicle routing problem with driver consistency
(Elsevier, 2018)The Periodic Vehicle Routing Problem is a generalization of the classical capacitated vehicle routing problem in which routes are determined for a planning horizon of several days. Each customer has an associated set of ... 
Piecewiselinear pathways to the optimal solution set in linear programming
(Kluwer Academic Publishers  Plenum Publishers, 1997)This paper takes a fresh look at the application of quadratic penalty functions to linear programming. Recently, Madsen et al. (Ref. 1) described a continuation algorithm for linear programming based on smoothing a dual ... 
Polycrystalline diamond end mill cutting edge design to improve ductilemode machining of silicon
(Elsevier, 201801)Silicon is a commonly used material in optoelectronics and micro fluidics devices. Micro mechanical milling of silicon with polycrystalline diamond (PCD) tools has the potential to produce threedimensional surfaces with ... 
Polyhedral analysis for concentrator location problems
(Springer, 2006)The concentrator location problem is to choose a subset of a given terminal set to install concentrators and to assign each remaining terminal node to a concentrator to minimize the cost of installation and assignment. The ... 
Polyhedral analysis for the twoitem uncapacitated lotsizing problem with oneway substitution
(Elsevier, 20090728)We consider a production planning problem for two items where the high quality item can substitute the demand for the low quality item. Given the number of periods, the demands, the production, inventory holding, setup ... 
Polyhedral analysis for the uncapacitated hub location problem with modular arc capacities
(Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics, 2005)We consider the problem of installing a twolevel telecommunication network. Terminal nodes communicate with each other through hubs. Hubs can be installed on terminal nodes and they are interconnected by a complete network. ... 
A polyhedral study of multiechelon lot sizing with intermediate demands
(Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences (I N F O R M S), 2012)In this paper, we study a multiechelon uncapacitated lotsizing problem in series (mULS), where the output of the intermediate echelons has its own external demand and is also an input to the next echelon. We propose a ... 
Postdisaster assessment routing problem
(Elsevier, 2018)In this study, we propose a postdisaster assessment strategy as part of response operations in which effective and fast relief routing are of utmost importance. In particular, the road segments and the population points ... 
Predictive/reactive scheduling with controllable processing times and earlinesstardiness penalties
(Taylor & Francis, 2009)In this study, a machine scheduling problem with controllable processing times in a parallelmachine environment is considered. The objectives are the minimization of manufacturing cost, which is a convex function of ...

A prescription fraud detection model
(Elsevier Ireland Ltd., 2012)Prescription fraud is a main problem that causes substantial monetary loss in health care systems. We aimed to develop a model for detecting cases of prescription fraud and test it on real world data from a large multicenter ... 
Pricing American contingent claims by stochastic linear programming
(Taylor & Francis, 2009)We consider pricing of American contingent claims (ACC) as well as their special cases, in a multiperiod, discrete time, discrete state space setting. Until now, determining the buyer's price for ACCs required solving an ... 
Pricing American perpetual warrants by linear programming
(Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics, 2009)A warrant is an option that entitles the holder to purchase shares of a common stock at some prespecified price during a specified interval. The problem of pricing a perpetual warrant (with no specified interval) of the ... 
Pricing multiple exercise American options by linear programming
(Springer New York LLC, 2017)We consider the problem of computing the lower hedging price of American options of the call and put type written on a nondividend paying stock in a nonrecombinant tree model with multiple exercise rights. We prove using ... 
A private contributions game for joint replenishment
(2012)We study a noncooperative game for joint replenishment by n firms that operate under an EOQlike setting. Each firm decides whether to replenish independently or to participate in joint replenishment, and how much to ...
