In this paper, we develop a multi-objective model to optimally control the lead time of a multistage assembly system, using an interactive method. The multistage assembly system is modelled as an open queueing network, whose service stations represent manufacturing or assembly operations. It is assumed that the product order arrives according to a Poisson(More)
This paper presents the optimal sequence of a set of jobs for a single machine with idle insert, in which the objective function is to minimize the sum of maximum earliness and tardiness (n/1/I/ETmax). Since this problem tries to minimize and diminish the values of earliness and tardiness, the results can be useful for different production systems such as(More)
In this paper, we apply the stochastic dynamic programming to find the dynamic shortest path from the source node to the sink node in stochastic dynamic networks, in which the arc lengths are independent random variables with exponential distributions. In each node there is an environmental variable, which evolves in accordance with a continuous time Markov(More)
In this paper, solving a cell formation (CF) problem in dynamic condition is going to be discussed by using some traditional metaheuristic methods such as genetic algorithm (GA), simulated annealing (SA) and tabu search (TS). Most of previous researches were done under the static condition. Due to the fact that CF is a NP-hard problem, then solving the(More)
In this paper, we develop a multi-objective model to optimally control the lead time of a multi-stage assembly system, using genetic algorithms. The multi-stage assembly system is modelled as an open queueing network. It is assumed that the product order arrives according to a Poisson process. In each service station, there is either one or infinite number(More)
We develop a multi-objective model for the time-cost trade-off problem in PERT networks with generalized Erlang distributions of activity durations, using a genetic algorithm. The mean duration of each activity is assumed to be a non-increasing function and the direct cost of each activity is assumed to be a non-decreasing function of the amount of resource(More)
In this paper we develop an open queueing network for optimal design of multi-stage assemblies, in which each service station represents a manufacturing or assembly operation. The arrival processes of the individual parts of the product are independent Poisson processes with equal rates. In each service station, there is a server with exponential(More)
This paper presents the optimal scheduling in a single machine by considering idle insert. The objective function is to minimize the sum of maximum earliness and tardiness. This scheduling problem can be applied in different production systems such as just in time (JIT) systems. Special case of common due date is presented and the associated optimal(More)
