#### Hazardous waste management system design under population and environmental impact considerations

(Academic Press, 2017)

This paper presents a multi objective mixed integer location/routing model that aims to minimize
transportation cost and risks for large-scale hazardous waste management systems (HWMSs). Risks
induced by hazardous wastes ...

#### 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 ...

#### 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 ...

#### Buyer's quantile hedge portfolios in discrete-time trading

(2013)

The problem of quantile hedging for American claims is studied from the perspective of the buyer of a contingent claim by minimizing the 'expected failure ratio'. After a general study of the problem in infinite-state ...

#### 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 ...

#### Inequity averse optimization in operational research

(Elsevier, 2015)

There are many applications across a broad range of business problem domains in which equity is a concern and many well-known operational research (OR) problems such as knapsack, scheduling or assignment problems have been ...

#### A simulation based learning meachanism for scheduling systems with continuous control and update structure

(IEEE, 2005)

A simulation based learning mechanism is proposed in this study. The system learns in the manufacturing environment by constructing a learning tree and selects a dispatching rule from the tree for each scheduling period. ...

#### Mixed-integer second-order cone programming for lower hedging of American contingent claims in incomplete markets

(2013)

We describe a challenging class of large mixed-integer second-order cone programming models which arise in computing the maximum price that a buyer is willing to disburse to acquire an American contingent claim in an ...

#### A parametric simplex algorithm for linear vector optimization problems

(Springer, 2017)

In this paper, a parametric simplex algorithm for solving linear vector optimization problems (LVOPs) is presented. This algorithm can be seen as a variant of the multi-objective simplex (the Evans–Steuer) algorithm (Math ...

#### Spatial analysis of single allocation hub location problems

(Springer, 2016)

Hubs are special facilities that serve as switching, transshipment and sorting nodes in many-to-many distribution systems. Flow is consolidated at hubs to exploit economies of scale and to reduce transportation costs between ...
