#### The parallel surrogate constraint approach to the linear feasibility problem

(Springer, 1996)

The linear feasibility problem arises in several areas of applied mathematics and medical science, in several forms of image reconstruction problems. The surrogate constraint algorithm of Yang and Murty for the linear ...

#### Linear programming via a quadratic penalty function

(Physica - Verlag, 1996)

We use quadratic penalty functions along with some recent ideas from linear l1 estimation to arrive at a new characterization of primal optimal solutions in linear programs. The algorithmic implications of this analysis ...

#### Composite regions of feasibility for certain classes of distance constrained network location problems

(INFORMS, 1996)

Distance constrained network location involves locating m new facilities on a transport network G so as to satisfy upper bounds on distances between pairs of new facilities and pairs of new and existing facilities. The ...

#### An integrated process planning approach for CNC machine tools

(Springer-Verlag, 1996)

In view of the high investment and tooling cost of a CNC machining centre, the cutting and idle times should be optimised by considering the tool consumption and the non-machining time cost components. In this paper, we ...

#### A note on the within-cell layout problem based on operation sequences

(Taylor & Francis, 1996)

The existing studies in the literature usually ignore the within-cell layout problem while forming part families and manufacturing cells. A new approach is proposed to solve the part-family and machine-cell formation problem ...

#### On the consistency of a two-sample matching test

(Taylor & Francis, 1996)

Let {X k} and {Y k}, 1 ≤ k ≤n be the order statistics of independent random samples from continuous distribution function F and G respectively. To test the null hypothesis H 0 : G = F, known, against the alternative H 1 : ...

#### Tool allocation and machining conditions optimization for CNC machines

(Elsevier, 1996)

In the literature, there exist many variations of machining economics problem in terms of modelling approaches and solution methodologies. However most of the existing studies focus on the single machining operation which ...

#### Part-machine grouping using a multi-objective cluster analysis

(1996)

In the existing literature, the part-family 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 new finite continuation algorithm for linear programming

(Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics, 1996)

We describe a new finite continuation algorithm for linear programming. The dual of the linear programming problem with unit lower and upper bounds is formulated as an f\ minimization problem augmented with the addition ...

#### A neural network model for scheduling problems

(Elsevier, 1996)

Artificial neural networks (ANNs) have been successfully applied to solve a variety of problems. This paper proposes a new neural network approach to solve the single machine mean tardiness scheduling problem and the minimum ...
