Strategies to model scheduling decisions to plan the soft drink production process
In this paper we present a mixed integer model that integrates lot sizing and lot scheduling decisions for the production planning of a soft drink company. The main contribution of the paper is to present a model that ...
Tabu search to solve the Synchronized and Integrated Two-Level Lot Sizing and Scheduling Problem
This paper proposes a tabu search approach to solve the Synchronized and Integrated Two-Level Lot Sizing and Scheduling Problem (SITLSP). It is a real-world problem, often found in soft drink companies, where the production ...
Solution approaches for the soft drink integrated production lot sizing and scheduling problem
(Elsevier B.V., 2009-07-16)
In this paper we present a mixed integer programming model that integrates production lot sizing and scheduling decisions of beverage plants with sequence-dependent setup costs and times. The model considers that the ...
An integral approach to inferential quality control with self-validating soft-sensors
This paper presents an integral technique for designing an inferential quality control applicable to multivariate processes. The technique includes a self-validating soft-sensor and a multivariate quality control index ...
Quantum section method for the soft stadium
The soft stadium is defined by a monomial potential with exponent α as a parameter, such that α → ∞ corresponds to the billiard. The practical use of the quantum section method depends only on the partial separability of ...
