1. Presenting a bi-objective integrated production planning model considering constraints on order acceptance, production and customer delivery using meta-heuristic algorithms

Morteza Karimi; Tahmoores Sohrabi; Hasan Mehrmanesh

Articles in Press, Accepted Manuscript, Available Online from 03 October 2021

  In this study, the problem of simultaneous determination of order acceptance, scheduling and batch delivery considering sequence-dependent setup and capacity constraint has been presented. This problem is a combination of the three problems of order acceptance, scheduling and batch delivery. The most ...  Read More

Articles in Press, Accepted Manuscript, Available Online from 03 October 2021

  Since human societies have endured massive financial disruptions and life losses after the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is critical to eliminate this disease as soon as possible. Today, the invention of the COVID-19 vaccine made this objective more reachable. But unfortunately, the suppliant ...  Read More

3. Ant colony optimization, genetic algorithm and hybrid metaheuristics: A new solution for parallel machines scheduling with sequence-dependent set-up times

Mahdi Nakhaeinejad

Volume 7, Issue 2 , Summer and Autumn 2020, , Pages 223-239


  The parallel machine scheduling problem (PMSP) is one of the most difficult classes of problem. Due to the complexity of the problem, obtaining optimal solution for the problems with large size is very time consuming and sometimes, computationally infeasible. So, heuristic algorithms that provide near-optimal ...  Read More

4. Multi-objective scheduling and assembly line balancing with resource constraint and cost uncertainty: A “box” set robust optimization

Javad Behnamian; Zeynab Rahami

Volume 7, Issue 1 , Winter and Spring 2020, , Pages 220-232


  Assembly lines are flow-oriented production systems that are of great importance in the industrial production of standard, high-volume products and even more recently, they have become commonplace in producing low-volume custom products. The main goal of designers of these lines is to increase the efficiency ...  Read More

5. Virtual manufacturing cells scheduling considering lotstreaming and sequence dependent setup times

A. Ayooq; A. Alem Tabriz; A. Javani

Volume 2, Issue 1 , Winter and Spring 2015, , Pages 61-73

  In this paper, a new mathematical model for the problem of job scheduling in virtual manufacturing cells (VMC) is presented to minimizing the completion time of all jobs. Sequence dependent setup times of machines is considered and lot-streaming is possible. In Virtual manufacturing cells, ...  Read More
