Managing word-of-mouth with capacity allocation and advertisement
Dipkaya, Asya; Batun, Sakine; Çavdar, Bahar; Department of Industrial Engineering (2021-9)
We study the advertising and capacity decisions of a service firm under endogenous demand and multiple time periods. Consumers are exposed to two types of information: experiences of other consumers regarding fill rate of ...
An integrated cutting stock and lot sizing problem
Şanan, Ayşe Burcu; Azizoğlu, Meral; Köksalan, Murat; Department of Industrial Engineering (2021-9)
In this thesis, we consider an integrated two dimensional cutting stock and lot sizing problem arising in an aircraft manufacturing plant. The items are to be cut from steel panels of identical size to satisfy all periodic...
Dimension reduction for tree-structured data
Durak, Erdinç; Tural, Mustafa Kemal; İyigün, Cem; Department of Industrial Engineering (2021-9)
Statistical analysis of tree-structured data is one of the exciting research areas with expanding application areas. In classical data analysis, the data objects are points in the Euclidean space, whereas they are trees in...
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...
Unmanned Air Vehicle Routing With Multiple Objectives
Daşdemir, Erdi; Azizoğlu, Meral; Tezcaner Öztürk, Diclehan; Department of Industrial Engineering (2021-7)
Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) are special types of aircraft operating without a human pilot on board. In this thesis, the multi-objective UAV route planning is addressed by studying three different problems. In the first...
Energy conscious machine and robot speed decisions in two machine robotic cell scheduling
Güzel, Betül Necibe; Gürel, Sinan; Department of Industrial Engineering (2021-6-15)
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...
