Technology selection in the presence of dual-role factors

Reza Farzipoor Saen
2010 International Journal of Advanced Operations Management (IJAOM)  
One of the uses of Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) is technology selection. The traditional models of DEA do not consider dual-role factors.  ...  The objective of this paper is to use a model for selecting the best technologies in the presence of dual-role factors.  ...  First, the approach improves the quality of technology selection, but by no means it is aimed to fully replace management judgment.  ...

Solving vehicle routing problems with asymmetric costs and heterogeneous fleets

Rosa Herrero, Alejandro Rodríguez, José Cáceres Cruz, Angel A. Juan
2014 International Journal of Advanced Operations Management (IJAOM)  
The proposed approach combines a randomised version of a well-known savings heuristic with several local searches specifically adapted to deal with the asymmetric nature of costs.  ...  However, most VRP-related academic articles assume the existence of a homogeneous fleet of vehicles and/or a symmetric cost matrix. These assumptions are not always reasonable in real-life scenarios.  ...  Acknowledgements This work has been partially supported by the Ibero-American Program for Science, Technology and Development (CYTED2010-511RT0419, IN3-HAROSA network) and by the Spanish Ministry of Science  ...

Multi-period cell loading and job sequencing in a cellular manufacturing system

Gokhan Egilmez, Gürsel A. Süer
2015 International Journal of Advanced Operations Management (IJAOM)  
Additionally, three types of due dates (tight, medium and loose) were used to study the impact of tightness of due times.  ...  The objectives are to minimize the number of tardy jobs 2 (nT) in a multi-period planning horizon and optimize the scheduling of tardy jobs.  ...  Allowing of early start means that as long as capacity is available (current load is less than 40 hours for one cell), following periods' jobs can be processed in advance.  ...
