Profit oriented disassembly line balancing

Altekin, Fatma Tevhide
In this study, we deal with the profit oriented partial disassembly line balancing problem which seeks a feasible assignment of selected disassembly tasks to stations such that the precedence relations among the tasks are satisfied and the profit is maximized. We consider two versions of this problem. In the profit maximization per cycle problem (PC), we maximize the profit for a single disassembly cycle given the task times and costs, part revenues and demands and station costs. We propose a heuristic solution approach for PC based on the liner programming relaxation of our mixed integer programming formulation. In the profit maximization over the planning horizon problem (PH), the planning horizon is divided into time zones each of which may have a different disassembly rate and a different line balance. We also incorporate other issues such as finite supply of discarded product, subassembly and released part inventories availability, and smoothing of the number of stations across the zones. PH is decomposed into a number of successive per cycle problems, which are solved by a similar heuristic approach. Computational analysis is conducted for both problems and results are reported.


Multi criteria assembly line balancing problem with equipment decisions
Pekin, Nilüfer; Azizoğlu, Meral; Department of Industrial Engineering (2006)
In this thesis, we develop an exact algorithm for an assembly line balancing problem with equipment selection decisions. Two objectives are considered: minimizing the total equipment costs and the number of workstations. Our aim is to choose the type of the equipment(s) in every workstation and determine the assignment of the tasks to each workstation and equipment type. We aim to propose a set of efficient solutions for each problem and leave the choice of the best solution to the decision maker̕s preferen...
Disassembly line balancing with limited supply and subassembly availability
Altekin, FT; Kandiller, L; Özdemirel, Nur Evin (2003-10-30)
Disassembly line balancing problem (DLBP) aims at finding a feasible assignment of disassembly tasks to workstations such that precedence relations among tasks are satisfied and some measure of effectiveness is optimized. We consider partial disassembly under limited supply of a single product as well as availability of its subassemblies. Hence, in satisfying the demand for revenue generating parts, both discarded products and available subassemblies can be utilized. We assume that part revenues and demand,...
CPPI strategy on defined contribution pension scheme under cushion option and discrete time trading setting
Gülveren, Anıl; Kestel, Sevtap Ayşe; Department of Actuarial Sciences (2016)
A Defined Contribution (DC) pension plan requires periodic contributions for a certain time in order to aggregate funds for the old ages. It enables the participant to pay a monthly/yearly premium whose valuation is done in financial markets. The choice of the market products (assets, bonds etc.) is processed by a centralized system at which a pension company/government has authority to manage the fund. Therefore, a risk management on the fund has to be taken into account. Such long term investment schemes ...
Optimal Limit Order Book Trading Strategies with Stochastic Volatility in the Underlying Asset
Aydoğan, Burcu; Uğur, Ömür; Aksoy, Ümit (2022-1-01)
In quantitative finance, there have been numerous new aspects and developments related with the stochastic control and optimization problems which handle the controlled variables of performing the behavior of a dynamical system to achieve certain objectives. In this paper, we address the optimal trading strategies via price impact models using Heston stochastic volatility framework including jump processes either in price or in volatility of the price dynamics with the aim of maximizing expected return of t...
Integrated demand and procurement portfolio management with spot market volatility and option contracts
Merzifonluoglu, Yasemin (2017-04-01)
The newsvendor problem aims to optimally choose a level of order quantity to respond to a known demand distribution with the objective of maximizing expected return. In practice, the decision maker is often challenged with more complex settings involving multiple decisions and uncertainties. For instance, firms may benefit from choosing the set of customer orders to satisfy. It may also be worthwhile for many firms to select a supply portfolio instead of relying on a single procurement mode. This paper prov...
