Minimizing the number of tool switching instants in Flexible Manufacturing Systems
Konak, Abdullah; Kulturel-Konak, Sadan; Azizoğlu, Meral (Elsevier BV, 2008-12-01)
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.
Minimizing the Age of Information in Broadcast Wireless Networks
Kadota, Igor; Uysal, Elif; Singh, Rahul; Modiano, Eytan (2016-09-30)
We consider a wireless broadcast network with a base station sending time-sensitive information to a number of clients. The Age of Information (AoI), namely the amount of time that elapsed since the most recently delivered packet was generated, captures the freshness of the information. We formulate a discrete-time decision problem to find a scheduling policy that minimizes the expected weighted sum AoI of the clients in the network. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first work to provide a scheduli...
Minimizing the Number of Detrimental Objects in Multi-Dimensional Graph-Based Codes
Hareedy, Ahmed; Kuditipudi, Rohith; Calderbank, Robert (2020-09-01)
© 1972-2012 IEEE.The increasing demand for access to data has led to dramatic increases in data storage densities, and as densities increase, new sources of error appear. Multi-dimensional (MD) graph-based codes are capable of mitigating error sources like interference and channel non-uniformity in dense storage devices. A recent innovation improves the performance of MD spatially-coupled codes that are based on circulants by carefully relocating some circulants to minimize the number of short cycles. Howev...
Minimizing total flow time on a single flexible machine
Karakayali, Ibrahim; Azizoğlu, Meral (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2006-03-01)
In this study, we address a job sequencing and tool switching problem arising in flexible manufacturing systems. We consider the single machine problem of minimizing total flow time. We prove that the problem is NP-hard in the strong sense and show that the tool switching problem is polynomially solvable for a given sequence.
Minimization of Transmission Duration of Data Packets over an Energy Harvesting Fading Channel
Ozcelik, F. Mehmet; Uctu, Goksel; Uysal, Elif (2012-12-01)
The offline problem of transmission completion time minimization for an energy harvesting transmitter under fading is extended to allow packet arrivals during transmission. A method for computing an optimal power and rate allocation (i.e., an optimal offline schedule) is developed and studied.
