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) ...
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 ...
A new dominance rule to minimize total weighted tardiness with unequal release dates
We present a new dominance rule by considering the time-dependent orderings between each pair of jobs for the single machine total weighted tardiness problem with release dates. The proposed dominance rule provides a ...
