The Single-item lot sizing problem in SMT production lines

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.


The plastic and the ultimate resistance of four-bolt extended end-plate connections
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 ...
The tools transporter movements problem in flexible manufacturing sysems
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...
The influence of thickness/grain size ratio in microforming through crystal plasticity
Bulut, Orhun; Acar, Sadik Sefa; Yalçınkaya, Tuncay (2021-01-01)
Microscale forming operations have become popular due to miniaturisation which focuses on micro scale design and manufacturing of devices, components and parts, e.g. in RF-MEMS. In such processes when the component dimension becomes comparable with the grain size, considerable size effect is observed. Recent experimental studies on micron sized sheet specimens have shown that the ratio between thickness (t) and grain size (d) has a significant influence on the mechanical behavior of materials which cannot b...
A Study of structural design based on optimality
Tamkan, Durukan; Tarman, Işık Hakan; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2019)
Topology optimization is one of the most powerful tool that designers use to reduce weight and cost in aerospace industry. However, traditional manufacturing techniques limit the oncoming advantages of topology optimization. New manufacturing techniques change the philosophy of topology optimization nearly dismissing the limits of manufacturing. Additive manufacturing not only adjoins complex shapes to design but also adjoins porous/lattice structures. In the first part of the thesis, a boarding step is opt...
