In a current high competitive business environment, cost estimation is a strategic tool in order to make decisions related to products during their design and development phases. Against traditional estimation methods, that needs to wait until the technical description of the product is completed, there exist new methods allowing to estimate the cost(More)
This paper proposes various lower bounds to the makespan of the flexible job shop scheduling problem (FJSP). The FJSP is known in the literature as one of the most difficult combinatorial optimisation problems (NP-hard). We will use genetic algorithms for the optimisation of this type of problems. The list of the demands is divided in two sets: the actual(More)
This paper first presents an improved method of temporal decomposition for minimising the searching space of scheduling problems. Next, the effects of the temporal decomposition procedure in scheduling problems are analysed. It is theoretically shown that the complexity of a scheduling algorithm using decomposed subsets varies inversely with that of the(More)
The outsourcing of logistics activities has become a common practice by many companies, which implies an efficient choice of the Third-Party Logistics (3PLs) providers. A literature review on the 3PLs provider’s selection problem shows that this selection is a very complex process which depends on several factors, which are often in conflict with one(More)
Life cycle assessment (LCA) is increasingly used as a decision support system that enables the modelling, the evaluation and the comparison of different alternatives of products, processes or supply chains as regards their environmental and sustainable impacts. In the textile-garment domain, the complexity of the supply chain adds to the difficulty of the(More)
