This paper presents a real time approach for optimizing the production rate of a line in the field of multiproduct Hoist Scheduling Problem (scheduling of the moves of a hoist in electroplating facilities). As a real time context is considered, any time a new job arrives, a new schedule of the whole jobs has to be computed. This local problem is referred as(More)
Mediation Information System Engineering project is starting its third iteration (MISE 3.0). The main objective of this paper is to introduce that version. MISE 3.0 aims at defining and designing a platform, dedicated to detect, initiate and support any collaboration opportunity among potential partners (obviously based on results inherited from MISE 1.0(More)
The purpose of this paper is, on the one hand, to identify to define and classify customization requirements and, on the other hand, to evaluate how generic modeling and configuration assistance within the Constraint Satisfaction Problem (CSP) framework can fulfil the requirements. The aim is to provide commercial configurator knowledge base designers with(More)
Quality control lead times are one of most significant causes of loss of time in the pharmaceutical and cosmetics industries. This is partly due to the organization of laboratories that feature parallel multipurpose machines for chromatographic analyses. The testing process requires long setup times and operators are needed to launch the process. The(More)
During the winter, snowfalls may occur, producing potential problems for traffic management. These road crises might be reduced setting up a collaborative network of heterogeneous actors aiming to solve this critical situation. Because crises deal with a lot of information, an Information Decision Support System might be deployed. Our point of view is to(More)
Our communication deals with the design of electrical/electronical wiring system for automotive industry. For this kind of product, we want to show how configuration techniques can be a significant assistance for design. After a brief presentation of the product and design requirements, we propose a design method, then we show how and why configuration and(More)
The French project OpenPaaS aims at providing a social platform to help companies initiating and managing their collaborations. Nowadays, data exchange is no sufficient and collaborations need to be supported for every interaction between the actors of the collaboration.
