On the exact solution of the no-wait flow shop problem with due date constraints
(Computers & Operations Research, 2017-05)
This paper deals with the no-wait flow shop scheduling problem with due date constraints. In the no-wait flow shop problem, waiting time is not allowed between successive operations of jobs. Moreover, the jobs should be ...
Studying the Reasons for Delay and Cost Overrun in Construction Projects: The Case of Iran.
(Journal of Construction in Developing Countries, 2016-07-31)
Undesirable delays in construction projects impose excessive costs and precipitate exacerbated durations. Investigating Iran, a developing Middle Eastern country, this paper focuses on the reasons for construction project ...
Studying the effect of server side constraints on the makespan of the no-wait flow shop problem with sequence dependent setup times.
(International Journal of Production Research, 2015)
This paper deals with the problem of scheduling the no-wait flow-shop system with sequence-dependent set-up times and server side-constraints. No-wait constraints state that there should be no waiting time between consecutive ...
A particle swarm optimisation for the no-wait flow shop problem with due date constraints.
(International Journal of Production Research, 2016)
This paper considers the no-wait flow shop scheduling problem with due date constraints. In the no-wait flow shop problem, waiting time is not allowed between successive operations of jobs. Moreover, a due date is associated ...
Studying the impact of merged and divided storage policies on the profitability of a remanufacturing system with deteriorating revenues
(International Journal of Production Economics, 2017-11)
Merging capacity for a remanufacturing system is studied in this paper. In the system under study, there are two streams for returns and each stream has its dedicated processing line. However, the storage space is merged ...
Continuous process improvement implementation framework using multi-objective genetic algorithms and discrete event simulation
(Business Process Management Journal, 2018)
Purpose Continuous process improvement is a hard problem, especially in high variety/low volume environments due to the complex interrelationships between processes. The purpose of this paper is to address the process ...
