On Parallel-Machine Scheduling with Operator-Constrained Setups
The processing of a task on a machine often requires an operator to setup the job. In this paper we consider the problem of scheduling a finite set of jobs on a number of identical parallel machines. Each job has a setup ...
Design of Material Flow Networks in Manufacturing Facilities
In this paper we consider the design of material handling flow paths in a discrete parts manufacturing facility. A fixed-charge capacitated network design model is presented and two efficient heuristics are proposed to ...
