Supplier selection, one of the most important issues of a company, must be systematically considered from the decision makers’ perspectives. For this reason, the supplier selection process were evaluated by researchers for many years in a large framework comprised of various experimental and analytical techniques and successful applications were done in(More)
Manual assembly production systems are still the most viable method for production a variety of products in small to medium batches. However, manual assembly work is often associated with ergonomically poor conditions that result in Work Related Musculoskeletal Disorders WRMDs, which result in low productivity and quality problems. Yet ergonomics is not(More)
A walking worker assembly line (WWAL), in which each cross-trained worker travels along the line to carry out all required tasks, is an example of lean system, specifically designed to respond quickly and economically to the fluctuating nature of market demands. Because of the complexity of WWAL design problems, classical heuristic approaches are not(More)
Result-Oriented Product Service System is a type of PSS which has the highest level of service content. Result-Oriented PSS providers sell functions to customers instead of selling products. In current researches, PSS is usually modelled based on the product lifecycle perspective. This paper proposes a new concept for developing Result-Oriented PSS from the(More)
In recent years, many flexible assembly systems have been adopted as effective and productive solutions to respond the changes and uncertainties in a competitive manufacturing environment. Successful designs of these systems must be capable of satisfying the strategic objectives of a management in manufacturing company. An example of such systems is(More)
Remanufacture strategy has been broadly applied to curb the environmental impacts of waste from discarded products. The strategy strives for waste reduction by promoting reutilisation and service life extension of end-of-life products. However, challenged by fast changing technologies and fashions, to rebuild a product just “as it is (or was)” often falls(More)
This paper develops a structure model with four layers to describe a result oriented PSS. Moreover, a design model which name is Life-cycle Oriented Design Model is also proposed. The model includes four steps which are System Requirement Analysis, System Capacity Modelling, Equipment Consumption Modelling and Support Plan for Equipments' product lifecycle(More)
