A problem space algorithm for single machine weighted tardiness problems
(Taylor & Francis Inc., 2003)
We propose a problem space genetic algorithm to solve single machine total weighted tardiness scheduling problems. The proposed algorithm utilizes global and time-dependent local dominance rules to improve the neighborhood ...
Inventory control under substitutable demand: A stochastic game application
(John Wiley & Sons, 2002)
Substitutable product inventory problem is analyzed using the concepts of stochastic game theory. It is assumed that there are two substitutable products that are sold by different retailers and the demand for each product ...
A local search heuristic with self-tuning parameter for permutation flow-shop scheduling problem
In this paper, a new local search metaheuristic is proposed for the permutation flow-shop scheduling problem. In general, metaheuristics are widely used to solve this problem due to its NP-completeness. Although these ...
Simulation metamodelling with neural networks: an experimental investigation
Artificial neural networks are often proposed as an alternative approach for formalizing various quantitative and qualitative aspects of complex systems. This paper examines the robustness of using neural networks as a ...
Designing a road network for hazardous materials shipments
We consider the problem of designating hazardous materials routes in and through a major population center. Initially, we restrict our attention to a minimally connected network (a tree) where we can predict accurately the ...
