A study of scheduling rules of flexible manufacturing systems : a simulation approach
(Taylor & Francis, 1998)
This study examines the effects of scheduling rules on the performance of flexible manufacturing systems (FMSs). Several machine and AGV scheduling rules are tested against the mean flowtime criterion. In general, scheduling ...
Diffusion approximation for processes with Semi-Markov switches and applications in queueing models
(Springer, Boston, 1999)
Stochastic processes with semi-Markov switches (or in semi-Markov environment) and general Switching processes are considered. In case of asymptotically ergodic environment functional Averaging Principle and Diffusion ...

The linear assignment problem
We present a broad survey of recent polynomial algorithms for the linear assignment problem. They all use essentially alternating trees and/or strongly feasible trees. Most of them employ Dijkstra’s shortest path algorithm ...
Asymptotic analysis of stochastic models of hierarchic structure and applications in queueing models
(Notable Pubns, 1998)
A class of switching stochastic systems with hierarchic state space working in different scales of time ( slow and fast) that are adequate mathematical models at the analysis and modelling of various classes of computing ...
Solution and cost analysis of general multi-channel and multi-stage filtering circuits
The fractional Fourier domain multi-channel and multi-stage filtering configurations that have been recently proposed enable us to obtain either exact realizations or useful approximations of linear systems or matrix-vector ...
Concurrent consideration of product design, process planning and production planning activities
In manufacturing engineering, product design, process planning and production planning activities are often considered independently. However, in order to effectively respond to changes in business situations, such as ...
