1. A cloud-based simulated annealing algorithm for order acceptance problem with weighted tardiness penalties in permutation flow shop scheduling

M. Zandieh; M.M. Asgari Tehrani

Volume 1, Issue 1 , Summer and Autumn 2014, Pages 1-19

Abstract
  Make-to-order is a production strategy in which manufacturing starts only after a customer's order is received; in other words, it is a pull-type supply chain operation since manufacturing is carried out as soon as the demand is confirmed. This paper studies the order acceptance problem with weighted ...  Read More

2. A novel approach in robust group decision making for supply strategic planning

T.H. Hejazi; I. Soleimanmeigouni

Volume 1, Issue 1 , Summer and Autumn 2014, Pages 20-30

Abstract
  Long-term planning is a challenging process for dealing with problems in big industries. Quick and flexible process of responding to the existing variable requirements are considered in such problems. Some of important strategic decisions which should be made in this field are, namely the way that manufacturing ...  Read More

3. A queuing-location model for in multi-product supply chain with lead time under uncertainty

M. Ramezani

Volume 1, Issue 1 , Summer and Autumn 2014, Pages 31-42

Abstract
  Supply chain network design (SCND) problem has recently been gaining attention because an integrated management of the supply chain (SC) can reduce the unexpected/undesirable events and can affect definitely the efficiency of all the chain. A critical component of the planning activities of a manufacturing ...  Read More

4. Customer behavior mining based on RFM model to improve the customer relationship management

F. Bagheri; M.J. Tarokh

Volume 1, Issue 1 , Summer and Autumn 2014, Pages 43-57

Abstract
  Companies’ managers are very enthusiastic to extract the hidden and valuable knowledge from their organization data. Data mining is a new and well-known technique, which can be implemented on customers data and discover the hidden knowledge and information from customers' behaviors. Organizations ...  Read More

5. An inventory model for non-instantaneous deteriorating items with imperfect quality, delay in payments and time value money

M. Mahmoudinezhad; M. Ghoreishi; A. Mirzazadeh; A. Ghodratnama

Volume 1, Issue 1 , Summer and Autumn 2014, Pages 58-71

Abstract
  In this paper, Economic Order Quantity ( ) based model for non-instantaneous deteriorating items with imperfect quality, permissible delay in payments and inflation is proposed. We adopt a time-dependent demand function. Also, the effects of time value of money are studied using the Discounted Cash Flow ...  Read More

6. The optimal age-based replacement policy for systems subject to shocks

Behrouz Khorshidvand; Ashkan Ayough; Akbar Alem Tabriz

Volume 1, Issue 1 , Summer and Autumn 2014, Pages 72-82

Abstract
  In this article, two different systems subject to shocks occurring based on a non-homogeneous Poisson process (NHPP) are analyzed. Type –I system is consisted of a single unit and type –II system is consisted of two parallel units in which both units operate identically and simultaneously. ...  Read More
