In this paper, a production quantity model with random defective items, service level constraints and repair failure is studied. The existence of only one machine results in limited production capacity and partial backordering. The aim of this research is to determine the optimal cycle length, optimal production quantity and optimal backordered quantity of(More)
The Vehicle Routing Problem (VRP) has been thoroughly studied in the last decades. However, the main focus has been on the deterministic version where customer demands are fixed and known in advance. Uncertainty in demand has not received enough consideration. When demands are uncertain, several problems arise in the VRP. For example, there might be unmet(More)
This paper illustrates the results of an investigation into developing a new robust train-timetabling problem in a single-track railway line. The proposed model is formulated as a robust form of the mixed integer approach. A branch-and-bound (B&B) algorithm, along with a new heuristic beam search (BS) algorithm, is presented to solve the model for(More)
