Flexibility in manufacturing: A survey
This article is an attempt to survey the vast literature on flexibility in manufacturing that has accumulated over the last 10 to 20 years. The survey begins with a brief review of the classical
A Survey of the Maximum Principles for Optimal Control Problems with State Constraints
TLDR
The relations between the different sets of optimality conditions arising in Pontryagin's maximum principle are shown and the application of these maximum principle conditions is demonstrated by solving some illustrative examples.

Classification of flexible manufacturing systems
TLDR
There has been some uncertainty concerning the conditions under which a manufacturing system may be termed 'flexible', so eight types of flexibilities are defined and described to clarify this confusion.
Explicit Solution of a General Consumption/Investment Problem
TLDR
The value functions derived for geometric Brownian motion are shown to provide upper and lower bounds on the value functions in the more general context and are extended to consider more general risky investments.
Coordination of Supply Chains with Risk-Averse Agents
The extant supply chain management literature has not addressed the issue of coordination in supply chains involving risk-averse agents. We take up this issue and begin with defining a coordinating
