Optimized harvest scheduling in eucalyptus plantations under operational, spatial and climatic constraints
(IPEF-INST PESQUISAS ESTUDOS FLORESTAIS, 2010)
The representation of sustainability concerns in industrial forests management plans, in relation to environmental, social and economic aspects, involve a great amount of details when analyzing and understanding the ...
Heterogeneous effects of financial constraints on innovation: Evidence from Chile
(Oxford University Press, 2015)
In this paper we study the effect of financial constraints on innovation using data from a 2007 survey of more than 10,000 Chilean firms. In contrast with other surveys, this dataset allows for the construction of a direct ...
Influence of the Operational Constraints in the Active Transmission Losses Allocation via Lagrange Multipliers
(IEEE-INST ELECTRICAL ELECTRONICS ENGINEERS INC, 2010)
This paper presents an approach for the active transmission losses allocation between the agents of the system. The approach uses the primal and dual variable information of the Optimal Power Flow in the losses allocation ...
On the solution of mathematical programming problems with equilibrium constraints
Mathematical programming problems with equilibrium constraints (MPEC) are nonlinear programming problems where the constraints have a form that is analogous to first-order optimality conditions of constrained optimization. ...
A new formulation for scheduling unrelated processor under precedence constraints
(Gauthier-villars/editions ElsevierParisFrança, 1999)
A novel constraint programming model for large-scale scheduling problems in multiproduct multistage batch plants: Limited resources and campaign-based operation
This contribution introduces an efficient constraint programming (CP) model that copes with large-scale scheduling problems in multiproduct multistage batch plants. It addresses several features found in industrial ...
Fundamental principles of the Toyota Way and the Theory of Constraints: Comparative analysis and synthesis
Several researchers have attempted to understand the essence of the principles that support Toyota Way and Theory of Constraints management philosophies, because they recognise such principles as central to explain their ...
A Model ofthe Distríbuted Constraint Satísfactíon Problem and an Algorithm for Configuratíon Design
(Revista Computación y Sistemas; Vol. 1 No. 2, 1997-12-15)
Abstract. The objective of this research is to develop an approach to representing and satisfying constraints during the cooperative configuration design of complex objects with hierarchical structure. Designers often ...
On the regularization of mixed complementarity problems
A variational inequality problem (VIP) satisfying a constraint qualification can be reduced to a mixed complementarity problem (MCP). Monotonicity of the VIP implies that the MCP is also monotone. Introducing regularizing ...
