A Joint Policy for Preventive Maintenance and Spare Part Inventory Control
Kaya, Tuna Berk; Bayındır, Zeynep Pelin; Bakal, İsmail Serdar; Department of Industrial Engineering (2021-8)
Machine failures are the primary cause of production disruption in manufacturing systems, leading to significant profit loss. Preventive maintenance activities can adjust the frequency of failures to a certain point. Both ...
Two-mode probabilistic distance clustering
Caner, Yağmur; İyigün, Cem; Department of Industrial Engineering (2021-7-29)
Probabilistic Distance Clustering (PDC) is a soft clustering technique constructed around some axioms. It is a center-based approach and assigns each data point to multiple clusters with a membership probability. The PDC i...
Energy conscious machine and robot speed decisions in two machine robotic cell scheduling

Minimizing cycle time has always been a critical objective in manufacturing cells. Recently, energy efficient and environmentally conscious manufacturing practices have received increasing attention from researchers and pr...
Atashi Khoei, Arsham; Süral, Haldun; Tural, Mustafa Kemal; Department of Industrial Engineering (2021-5-26)
Green logistics encompasses the efforts to observe and reduce the environmental impacts of logistics activities. This thesis studies different problems in two subdivisions of green logistics that are green transportation a...
Decentralized inventory planning with transshipments in a multi-project environment
Soylu Nazlı, Duygu; Bakal, İsmail Serdar; Savaşaneril Tüfekci, Seçil; Department of Industrial Engineering (2021-3-17)
Many companies in project-based industries manage their inventories in a decentralized manner on a project-by-project basis. Even if one project has excess supply of a material, the other may have excess demand of it, whic...
K-median clustering algorithms for time series data
Gökçem, Yiğit; İyigün, Cem; Department of Industrial Engineering (2021-3-10)
Clustering is an unsupervised learning method, that groups the unlabeled data forgathering valuable information. Clustering can be applied on various types of data. Inthis study, we have focused on time series clustering. ...
Finding an energy efficient path for a plug - in electric vehicle via speed optimization
Erdoğan, Bilgenur; Tural, Mustafa Kemal; Department of Industrial Engineering (2021-2-24)
Given an origin-destination pair over a directed network, the problem of determining a path joining origin and destination, the speed of a plug-in electric vehicle on each road segment, i.e., arc, along the path, the charg...
An evolutionary algorithm to the two-echelon location routing problems with hard time windows
Müslim, Melissa; Süral, Haldun; İyigün, Cem; Department of Industrial Engineering (2021-2-10)
Rapid growth in freight distribution networks due to increasing demand created the necessity for effective and efficient methods for freight vehicle movements. Motivated by the effective distribution network design problem...
The capacitated vehicle routing problem with simultaneous pickup-delivery and time windows in the sustainable food supply chains
Farshchi, Mahdi; Meral, Fatma Sedef; Can Çetinkaya, Ferda; Department of Industrial Engineering (2021-1-14)
The aim of our study is transportation planning in perishable food supply chains. We model this problem as the vehicle routing problem with simultaneous pickup and delivery, and soft time windows for perishable products (V...
A stochastic disassembly line balancing problem with hazardous tasks
Göksoy Kalaycılar, Eda; Batun, Sakine; Department of Industrial Engineering (2020-11)
In this thesis, we study a Stochastic Disassembly Line Balancing Problem (SDLBP) with hazardous tasks. We define success and failure events for each hazardous task and describe several scenarios over all hazardous tasks. O...
A solution methodology for the unit commitment problem in traditional-and-wind integrated hybrid power systems under supply/demand uncertainty and emission limitations
Karabaş, Tolga; Meral, Fatma Sedef; Department of Industrial Engineering (2020-9)
Unit commitment problem (UCP) is one of the essential problems in operations planning of power generation systems. The objective is to minimize total operating cost while meeting the forecasted load requirements and satisf...
Management of interdependent infrastructure networks under disaster-related uncertainties
Canbilen, Tuğçe; Batun, Sakine; Çelik, Melih; Department of Industrial Engineering (2020-8)
During a disaster, multiple infrastructures such as power, water, or telecommunications networks may face disruptions in their services. Services of these infrastructures are vital in the aftermath of a disaster to facilit...
Location–routing and synchronization problems in city logistics
Farham, Mohammad Saleh; Süral, Haldun; Department of Industrial Engineering (2020)
City logistics aims to improve urban freight transportation by considering the costs and benefits of public and private sectors, consolidating segmented freight shipments, and integrating the individual actors in a collabo...
Minimum weighted perfect neighborhood set problem
Hastürk, Umur; Tural, Mustafa Kemal; Department of Operational Research (2020)
Given an undirected simple graph G = (V,E), the open neighborhood of a vertex j ∈ V , denoted by δ(j), is defined as the set of all vertices that are adjacent to j , i.e., δ(j) = {i
A Study of the day-ahead energy market auctions from a multi-objective perspective
Ceyhan, Gökhan; Lokman, Banu; Department of Industrial Engineering (2020)
In this study, we develop approaches for the market clearing problem in European day-ahead electricity markets. We first present the surplus maximization problem and extend it with pricing constraints that limit market los...
A Markov decision process with unobservable strength under Markovian environment
Altınkeser, Pınar; Serin, Yaşar Yasemin; Department of Industrial Engineering (2020)
This thesis focuses on a system which survives or fails depending on the stress it is exposed to and strength occurrences. Stress and strength are random quantities generated by two factors, an unobservable Markovian envir...
New product introduction incentives for suppliers and a common retailer
Kırcı, Kubilay.; Karaer, Özgen; Department of Industrial Engineering (2020)
In this thesis, we investigate the effect of the new product introduction in a supply chain of two suppliers and a common retailer. We study two settings. In this first, we find the two-product equilibrium in which each su...
