It is well-known that production scheduling can be largely categorized into open and closed-shops (Graves (1981)). Open-shops are job-shops, flow-shops, machine-shops and project-shops and deal exclusively with the assignment, sequencing and timing decisions (Pinedo (1995)). Closed-shops on the other hand also deal with the same three decision-groups as(More)
Animal-scavenging alterations on human remains can be mistaken as human criminal activity. A 32-day study, documenting animal scavenging on a human cadaver, was conducted at the Southeast Texas Applied Forensic Science facility, Sam Houston State University, Huntsville, Texas. A Stealth Cam Rogue IR was positioned near the cadaver to capture scavenging(More)
This article describes an effective and simple primal heuristic to greedily encourage a reduction in the number of binary or 0-1 logic variables before an implicit enumerative-type search heuristic is deployed to find integer-feasible solutions to " hard " production scheduling problems. The basis of the technique is to employ well-known smoothing functions(More)
Pellets of mineralized and demineralized bone and a composite mixture of mineralized and demineralized, devitalized bone particles were implanted subcutaneously on the dorsal body wall of young adult rats. Two weeks post-implantation, the pellets were removed and processed for histochemical and morphological analyses. Rat proximal tibia was also processed(More)
Lewis rats immunized with Peptide M (an oligopeptide epitope of the S-antigen protein) developed experimental autoimmune uveoretinitis (EAU) and experimental autoimmune pinealitis (EAP). Temporal changes in mononuclear infiltrate to the pineal gland were quantitated by computer image analysis of sections immunostained with monoclonal antibodies to specific(More)
Nonlinear planning and scheduling models for crude-oil atmospheric and vacuum distillation units are essential to manage increased complexities and narrow margins present in the petroleum industry. Traditionally, conventional swing-cut modeling is based on fixed yields with fixed properties for the hypothetical cuts that swing between adjacent light and(More)
