A Class of Conflict Free Petri Nets Used for Controlling Manufacturing Systems
This paper is devoted to the behavior, evaluation and management of non-cyclic discrete systems in general and manufacturing systems in particular. We introduce a special type of Petri nets called CFIOs (Conflict-Free nets ...
Manufacturing Cell Formation Under Random Product Demand
The performance of cellular manufacturing systems is intrinsically sensitive to demand variations and machine breakdowns. A cell formation methodology that addresses, during the shop design stage, system robustness with ...
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 ...
