Complexity of Production Management in a Petri Net Environment
The objective of this paper is to show that Petri nets facilitate a comprehensive approach to production management and reduce the complexity of the problems involved at the expense of some constraints imposed on the ...
Hierarchical Production Planning for Complex Manufacturing
A hierarchical approach to production planning for complex manufacturing systems is presented. A single facility comprising of a number of work-centers that produce multiple part types is considered. The planning horizon ...
An Investigation of the Mechanics in the Machining of Ceramic Material
This study is an investigation into the mechanics in machining ceramic materials. Extensive experimentation is done in an effort to understand the process of material removal. The theory of fracture mechanics is used to ...
The Mechanics of Material Removal Mechanisms in the Machining of Ceramics
This paper presents a study on the mechanics of material removal for ceramic materials by observing single-point turning process of aluminum oxide (Al2O3). On-line cutting force measurement is performed and the surface ...
A Dual Ascent Approach to the Fixed-Charge Capacitated Network Design Problem
In this paper we consider the problem of constructing a network over which a number of commodities are to be transported. Fixed costs are associated to the construction of network arcs and variable costs are associated to ...
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 ...
