Convex envelope results and strong formulations for a class of mixed-integer programs
Denizel, M; Erenguc, SS; Sherali, HD (1996-06-01)
In this article we present a novel technique for deriving the convex envelope of certain nonconvex fixed-charge functions of the type that arise in several related applications that have been considered in the literature. One common attribute of these problems is that they involve choosing levels for the undertaking of several activities. Two or more activities share a common resource, and a fixed charge is incurred when any of these activities is undertaken at a positive level. We consider nonconvex progra...

Solution approaches for flexible job shop scheduling problems

In this thesis, we consider a flexible job shop scheduling problem existing in discrete parts manufacturing industries. We are motivated by the production environment of Roketsan Missiles Industries Incorporation, operating at Turkish defense industry. Our objective is to minimize the total weighted completion times of the jobs in the system. We formulate the problem as a mixed integer linear program and find that our model could find optimal solutions only to small sized problem instances. For medium and l...
