This paper considers a scheduling problem for a single burn-in oven in semiconductor manufacturing industry where the oven is a batch processing machine and each batch processing time is represented by the largest processing time among those of all the jobs contained in the batch. The objective measure of the problem is the maximum completion time(More)
This paper considers a reliability optimization problem for a series system with multiple-choice constraints incorporated at each subsystem to maximize the system reliability subject to the system budget. The problem is formulated as a nonlinear binary integer programming problem and characterized as an NP-hard problem. In the problem analysis, some(More)
This paper considers a scheduling problem for a single burn-in oven in the semiconductor manufacturing industry where the oven is a batch processing machine and each batch processing time is represented by the largest processing time among those of all the jobs contained in the batch. Each job belongs to one of the given number of families.Moreover, the(More)
This paper proposes a branch-and-price algorithm as an exact algorithm for the cross-docking supply chain network design problem introduced by one of the authors of this paper. The objective is to optimally locate cross-docking (CD) centres and allocate vehicles for direct transportation services from the associated origin node to the associated CD centre(More)
