A Practical Method for Design of Hybrid-Type Production Facilities
A comprehensive methodology for the design of hybrid-type production shops that comprise both manufacturing cells and individual workcenters is presented. It targets the minimization of the material handling effort within ...
Hierarchical Modeling Approach for Production Planning
Production management problems are complex owing to large dimensionality, wide variety of decisions of varying scope, focus and time-horizon, and disturbances. A hierarchical approach to these problems is a way to address ...
Manufacturing Cell Design Using Simulated Annealing: an Industrial Application
In this paper, we give a brief summary of simulated annealing procedures used to solve combinatorial optimization problems. We then present the manufacturing cell design problem which consists of designing cells of limited ...
