An integrated evaluation of facility location, capacity acquisition, and technology selection for designing global manufacturing strategies
(Elsevier BV, 1992)
Emergence of global markets enhanced the emergence of global firms which have plants in different countries and implement an integrated management style. Due to the intensive competition in global markets, manufacturing ...
Data dependent worst case bound improving techniques in zero-one programming
(Elsevier BV, 1991)
A simple perturbation of data is suggested for use in conjunction with approximation algorithms for the purpose of improving the available bounds (upper and lower), and the worst case bounds. The technique does not require ...
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, due-dates) are inevitable facts. All these dynamic changes, together with random disturbances (e.g. machine breakdowns) ...
A characterization of the optimal set of linear programs based on the augmented lagrangian
(Taylor & Francis, 1999)
It is proved that in a certain neighborhood of the optimal set of multipliers, the set of minimizers of the augmented lagrangian nmction generates a new characterization of the optimal solution set of the linear program.
Single machine earliness-tardiness scheduling problems using the equal-slack rule
(Palgrave Macmillan Ltd., 1994)
The purpose of this paper is to analyze a special case of the non-pre-emptive single machine scheduling problem where the distinct due dates for each job are related to processing times according to the Equal-Slack rule. ...
The green network design problem
Logistics activities are at the heart of world trade, but they also have unintended consequences on the environment due to the use of land, energy, and other types of natural resources. The significant energy usage by the ...
A branch and price approach for routing and refueling station location model
The deviation flow refueling location problem is to locate p refueling stations in order to maximize the flow volume that can be refueled respecting the range limitations of the alternative fuel vehicles and the shortest ...
Simulation optimization: a comprehensive review on theory and applications
(Taylor & Francis, 2004)
For several decades, simulation has been used as a descriptive tool by the operations research community in the modeling and analysis of a wide variety of complex real systems. With recent developments in simulation ...
Dynamic lot sizing and tool management in automated manufacturing systems
The overall aim of this study is to show that there is a critical interface between the lot sizing and tool management decisions, and these two problems cannot be viewed in isolation. We propose "ve alternative algorithms ...
The splittable flow arc set with capacity and minimum load constraints
We study the convex hull of the splittable flow arc set with capacity and minimum load constraints. This set arises as a relaxation of problems where clients have demand for a resource that can be installed in integer ...
