The majority of the issued facilities layout problems (FLPs) minimize the material handling cost and ignore other factors, such as area utilization, department shape and site shape size. These factors, however, might influence greatly the objective function and should give consideration. The research range of this paper is focus on the unequal areas(More)
We present a method for comparison and classii-cation of nonrigid motion using a deformable model and the associated modal dynamics. Using the solid state physics formulation, we develop the equations of motion and the analytical expressions of vibration modes of a multidimensional elastically-deformable model that we use for tracking of nonrigid features(More)
We present a method for analysis of nonrigid motion in time sequences of volume images (4D data). In this method nonrigid motion of the deforming object contour is dynamically approximated by a deformable surface. In order to reduce the number of parameters describing the deformation, we make use of modal analysis which provides a spatial smoothing of the(More)
This paper considers the problem of scheduling n jobs on a single machine to minimize the total weighted completion time. Each job has a release time, a processing time and a weight. For the problem, we present a bi-direction branching scheme based on branch and bound method, called bi-direction branch and bound (BDBAD), which incorporates forward-driven(More)
—In this research, the Genetic Algorithm (GA) and Space-Filling Curve (SFC) are combined along with the use of Taguchi method for finding the optimal combination of parameters. The new algorithm has been tested on 12 cases of spine-type facility layout for four different material handling directions, e.g. clockwise one-way, two-way, clockwise one way with a(More)
