Hub location-allocation in intermodal logistic networks
Within the context of intermodal logistics, the design of transportation networks becomes more complex than it is for single mode logistics. In an intermodal network, the respective modes areExpand

The capacitated lot sizing problem with setup carry-over
Although there is a significant amount of literature on the capacitated lot sizing problem, there has been insufficient consideration of planning problems in which it is possible for a lot size, orExpand

We describe a formulation of the dynamic lot sizing problem when demand is random and the costs are non-stationary. Assuming that the distribution of the cumulative demand is known for each periodExpand

Adaptive Inventory Control for Nonstationary Demand and Partial Information
This paper examines several different policies for an inventory control problem in which the demand process is nonstationary and partially observed. The probability distribution for the demand inExpand

A review of the stochastic lot scheduling problem 1 This paper is based upon work supported in part
Abstract This paper surveys the current research literature on the stochastic lot scheduling problem which deals with scheduling production of multiple products with random demand on a singleExpand

Design of intermodal logistics networks with hub delays
In an intermodal hub network, cost benefits can be achieved through the use of intermodal shipments and the economies of scale due to consolidation of flows at the hubs. However, due to limitedExpand

Intermodal logistics: The interplay of financial, operational and service issues
This research addresses strategic planning for an interregional, hub based, intermodal logistics network operated by a logistics service provider. A tabu search meta-heuristic is used to solve aExpand

“On-the-fly” line balancing with very little WIP
Abstract Dynamic line balancing (DLB) allows the workers on a production line to help each other with some tasks. However, for buffer capacity of 2 or less per stage, the advantage of DLB appeared toExpand

Coordinating production and inventory to improve service
Customer service has assumed strategic importance in most manufacturing environments. Corporate reputations often depend on how reliably promised lead times are met. A goal of filling orders within aExpand

Optimization-based planning for the stochastic lot-scheduling problem
We describe a finite-horizon stochastic optimization model for the stochastic lot-scheduling problem and procedures for finding near-optimal solutions. Several different products are produced by aExpand
