Serin, Harun
In this study, we examine the single-item lot sizing problem in surface mount technology (SMT) production lines which consist of a single automated pick-and-place surface mount equipment (SME). In our problem setting, processing and set up times depend on the component assignment to the component pockets on an SME. Blank body loading and component pack capacities are also taken into account. We propose an integrated mathematical model to the single-item lot sizing problem in SMT production lines where lot sizing and component assignment decisions are carried out together. In addition, we examine special cases for the component assignment problem and discuss how these cases influence the solution of the problem.

Özkılıç, Yasin Onuralp; Topkaya, Cem (2021-06-01)
Widely used design guidelines and specifications provide methods to calculate plastic resistance of end-plates considering yield line mechanisms. Experiments reported to date showed that the ultimate resistance of end-plates can be considerably larger than its plastic resistance due to strain hardening. Using the ultimate strength in design can be a viable and cost-effective option; however, limited studies exist on quantifying the ultimate strength. In this paper, a database of four-bolt extended end-plate...
The tool transporter movements problem in flexible manufacturing systems
Karzan, Fatma Kilinc; Azizoğlu, Meral (2008-01-01)
We consider a job sequencing and tool transporter movements problem on a single flexible machine with limited tool magazine capacity. A tool transporter having limited capacity is used in transporting the tools between the machine and tool crib area. Our aim is to minimize the number of the tool transporter movements. We present several lower and upper bounds, propose a Branch-and-Bound algorithm and a Beam Search procedure, and report results from a computational experiment. We find that optimal solutions ...

In this study, we address a part-type sequencing and tool switching problem arising in Flexible Manufacturing Systems. We consider the single machine problem of minimizing the number of tool switching instants. We propose two tabu search approaches to find high-quality solutions. Our computational results reveal that both tabu search approaches produce optimal or near-optimal solutions in reasonable times.

Kılınç, Fatma; Azizoğlu, Meral; Department of Industrial Engineering (2005)
In this study, we address job sequencing and tool switching problem arising in Flexible Manufacturing Systems. We consider a single machine with limited tool slots on its tool magazine. The available tool slots cannot accommodate all the tools required by all jobs, therefore tool switches between jobs are required. A single tool transporter with limited capacity is used in transporting the tools from the storage area to the machine. Our aim is to minimize the number of tool transporter movements. We provide...
A branch and bound method for the line balancing problem in U-shaped assembly lines with equipment requirements
Ogan, Dilek; Azizoğlu, Meral (2015-07-01)
In this study we consider a U-shaped assembly line balancing problem where each task uses a specified set of equipments and each type of equipment has a specified cost. Our problem is to assign the tasks together with their equipments to the workstations so as to minimize the total equipment cost. We formulate the problem as a mixed integer linear programming model that is capable of solving small sized instances. We propose a branch and bound algorithm that uses efficient precedence relations and lower bou...
