A Genetic Algorithm Approach to a General Category Project Scheduling Problem
(IEEE-INST ELECTRICAL ELECTRONICS ENGINEERS INC, 345 E 47TH ST, NEW YORK, NY 10017-2394 USA, 1999-02)
A genetic algorithm (GA) approach is proposed for the general resource constrained project scheduling model, in which activities may be executed in more than one operating mode and renewable as well as nonrenewable resource ...
A Hierarchical Planning System for Energy Intensive Production Environments
(ELSEVIER SCIENCE BV, PO BOX 211, 1000 AE AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS, 1999-01-15)
This paper describes a hierarchical production planning approach with decision support features for energy intensive industries with particular reference to a tile manufacturing factory. In the tiling industry, the facilities ...
Hybrid Heuristics for the Multi-stage Capacitated Lot Sizing and Loading Problem
(STOCKTON PRESS, HOUNDMILLS, BASINGSTOKE RG21 6XS, HAMPSHIRE, ENGLAND, 1999-08)
The multi-stage capacitated lot sizing and loading problem (MCLSLP) deals with the issue of determining the lot sizes of product items in serially-arranged manufacturing stages and loading them on parallel facilities in ...
FRACTOP: A Geometric Partitioning Metaheuristic for Global Optimization
(KLUWER ACADEMIC PUBL, SPUIBOULEVARD 50, PO BOX 17, 3300 AA DORDRECHT, NETHERLANDS, 1999-06)
We propose a new metaheuristic, FRACTOP, for global optimization. FRACTOP is based on the geometric partitioning of the feasible region so that search metaheuristics such as Simulated Annealing (SA), or Genetic Algorithms ...
A Note On the Use of a Fuzzy Approach in Adaptive Partitioning Algorithms for Global Optimization
(IEEE-INST ELECTRICAL ELECTRONICS ENGINEERS INC, 445 HOES LANE, PISCATAWAY, NJ 08855-4141 USA, 1999-08)
In global optimization, adaptive partitioning algorithms (APA) operate on the basis of partitioning the feasible region into subregions, sampling and evaluating each subregion, and selecting one or more subregions for ...
A hierarchical planning approach for a production-distribution system
(TAYLOR & FRANCIS LTD, ONE GUNPOWDER SQUARE, LONDON EC4A 3DE, ENGLAND, 1999-11-10)
A production-distribution model involving production and transportation decisions in a central factory and its warehouses is developed. The model is based on the operating system of a multi-national company producing ...
On Scheduling Project Activities With Variable Expenditure Rates
(KLUWER ACADEMIC PUBL, SPUIBOULEVARD 50, PO BOX 17, 3300 AA DORDRECHT, NETHERLANDS, 1998-08)
Commercial projects are undertaken with the expectation of maximizing financial returns. There are a variety of cash flow models in the literature in which payments, whose amounts depend on the type of contract quoted ...
Kinetics of the thermal dehydration of acid-activated montmorillonite by the rising temperature technique
The activation energies of dehydration and combustion of organic materials in a clay sample, and of dehydration of natural and acid-activated montmorillonite have been determined using a rising temperature programme ...
The Mechanism of Acid Activation of Montmorillonite
(TÜBİTAK Yayınları, 1991-01)
Improving performance of switched reluctance motor by fuzzy logic controller
This paper presents torque ripple minimization of a switched reluctance motor (SRM) by using a fuzzy controller, The nonlinear model of the SRM and the mathematical model of the converter circuit are driven. The motor used ...
