#### New characterizations of ℓ1 solutions to overdetermined systems of linear equations

(Elsevier, 1994)

New characterizations of the ℓ1 solutions to overdetermined system of linear equations are given. The first is a polyhedral characterization of the solution set in terms of a special sign vector using a simple property of ...

#### Analytical loading models in flexible manufacturing systems

(Elsevier, 1993)

It would be difficult to efficiently implement a manufacturing system without solving its design and operational problems. Based on this framework, a system configuration and tooling problem is modeled. The model turns out ...

#### A comparative study of cell formation in cellular manufacturing systems

(Taylor & Francis, 1994)

This paper analyses and evaluates six of the promising cell formation techniques by comparing and contrasting them in relation to the scores of efficiency indices of the exceptional elements and inner-cell densities, ...

#### 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 ...

#### An exact tool allocation approach for CNC machines

(Taylor & Francis, 1999)

An exact approach is developed to determine the optimum machining conditions and tool allocation decisions simultaneously to minimize the total production cost on a CNC turning machine. There are multiple machining operations ...

#### A new dominance rule for the total weighted tardiness problem

(Taylor & Francis, 1999)

We present a new dominance rule for the single machine total weighted tardiness problem with job dependent penalties. The proposed dominance rule provides a sufficient condition for local optimality. We show that if any ...

#### On Newton's method for Huber's robust M-estimation problems in linear regression

(Springer Netherlands, 1998)

The Newton method of Madsen and Nielsen (1990) for computing Huber's robust M-estimate in linear regression is considered. The original method was proved to converge finitely for full rank problems under some additional ...

#### A beam search-based algorithm and evaluation of scheduling approaches for fexible manufacturing systems

(Taylor & Francis, 1998)

This paper presents a new algorithm for the flexible manufacturing system (FMS) scheduling problem. The proposed algorithm is a heuristic based on filtered beam search. It considers finite buffer capacity, routing and ...

#### Scheduling for non regular performance measure under the due window approach

(Elsevier, 1999)

In the last two decades, Just-In-Time (JIT) production has proved to be an essential requirement of world class manufacturing. This has made schedulers most concerned about the realization of a JIT environment. The JIT ...

#### On connected Boolean functions

(Elsevier, 1999)

A Boolean function is called (co-)connected if the subgraph of the Boolean hypercube induced
by its (false) true points is connected; it is called strongly connected if it is both connected and
co-connected. The concept ...
