Single CNC machine scheduling with controllable processing times and multiple due dates
(Bilkent University, 2004)
In order to reflect the characteristics of a modern manufacturing environment, elements of customer satisfaction and the competition between firms should be considered simultaneously. Manufacturers should be careful on ...
An inventory model for recyclable goods with a disposal option
(Bilkent University, 2002-09)
Integrated flexible capacity and inventory management under flexible capacity uncertainty
(Bilkent University, 2006)
In a manufacturing environment with volatile demand, inventory management can be coupled with dynamic capacity adjustments for handling the fluctuations more effectively. In this study we consider the integrated management ...
An exact algorithm for the vehicle routing problem with backhauls
(Bilkent University, 2001)
We consider the Vehicle Routing Problem with Backhauls, in which a eet of vehicles located at a central depot is to be used to serve a set of customers partitioned into two subsets of linehaul and backhaul customers. ...
Shortest path problem with re-routing en-route
(Bilkent University, 2008)
In this study, we examine the shortest path problem under the possibility of “re-routing” when an arc that is being traversed is blocked due to reasons such as road and weather conditions, congestion, accidents etc. If ...
Generating robust and stable machine schedules from a proactive standpoint
(Bilkent University, 2009)
In practice, scheduling systems are subject to considerable uncertainty in highly dynamic operating environments. The ability to cope with uncertainty in the scheduling process is becoming an increasingly important issue. ...
The line balancing algorithm for optimal buffer allocation in production lines
(Bilkent University, 2002)
Buffer allocation is a challenging design problem in serial production lines that is often faced in the industry. Effective use of buffers (i.e. how much buffer storage to allow and where to place it) in production lines ...
Modeling and optimization of Central Ring Transportation System (CRTS) in Turkish Land Forces
(Bilkent University, 2003)
This thesis shows how Turkish Land Forces can optimally meet delivery and pick-up demands of its units via Central Ring Transportation System. A mixed integer programming model is proposed, and for the implementation of ...
Multimodal multicommodity routing problem with scheduled services
(Bilkent University, 2008)
We study a multicommodity network flow problem faced by a third party logistics company that has the possibility of using ground and maritime transportation. We are given a set of commodities which should be picked up ...
Scheduling preventive maintenance on a single machine : a machining conditions based approach
(Bilkent University, 2002-12)
