This paper shows that the presence of integrated technology shocks will prevent input prices and sales from being cointegrated with inventories. It is further shown that the commonly used cointegration tests are not applicable to the inventory equation arising from a dynamic linear‑quadratic (LQ) model, because of the long run endogeneity of the regressors and the moving‑average error term. The paper examines suitable estimation methods for the LQ inventory model in the presence of endogenous regressors and moving-average errors. Using appropriate estimation methods, cointegration is found among inventories, material prices, and sales for two-digit sectoral data, thus, providing evidence against the presence of integrated technology shocks. The results also indicate that the implausible parameter estimates obtained by previous researchers are the result of inappropriate estimation methods and ignored structural changes.

Optimization of Power Conversion Efficiency in Threshold Self-Compensated UHF Rectifiers With Charge Conservation Principle
Gharehbaghi, Kaveh; KOÇER, FATİH; Külah, Haluk (2017-09-01)
This paper presents a compact model for threshold self-compensated rectifiers that can be used to optimize circuit parameters early in the design phase instead of time-consuming transient simulations. A design procedure is presented for finding the optimum aspect ratio of transistors used in the converter and number of rectifying stages to achieve the maximum power conversion efficiency. In the presented analysis, the relation between the power conversion efficiency and the load current over the variation o...
Allocation and tooling decisions in flexible manufacturing systems
Özpeynirci, Selin; Azizoğlu, Meral; Department of Industrial Engineering (2007)
In this thesis, we consider a capacity allocation problem in flexible manufacturing systems. We assume limited time and tool magazine capacities on the Computer Numerically Controlled (CNC) machines. We have a set of operations that have to be assigned to the machines and each operation requires a set of tools to be processed. Our problem is to allocate the available capacity of the CNC machines to operations and their required tools. We consider two problems in this study: maximizing the total weight of op...
Closed-loop supply chain network design under demand, return and quality uncertainty
Batun, Sakine (2018-07-08)
We consider the problem of designing a closed-loop supply chain (CLSC) network in the presence of uncertainty in demand quantities, return rates, and quality of the returned products. We formulate the problem as a two-stage stochastic mixed-integer program (SMIP) that maximizes the total expected profit. The first-stage decisions in our model are facility location and capacity decisions, and the second-stage decisions are the forward/backward flows on the network and hence the production/recovery quantities...

Optimal pricing and ordering policy for non-instantaneous deteriorating items under inflation and customer returns
Ghoreishi, M.; Mirzazadeh, A.; Weber, Gerhard Wilhelm (Informa UK Limited, 2014-01-01)
This paper deals with an economic production quantity inventory model for non-instantaneous deteriorating items under inflationary conditions considering customer returns. We adopt a price-and time-dependent demand function. Also, the customer returns are considered as a function of both price and demand. The effects of time value of money are studied using the Discounted Cash Flow approach. The main objective is to determine the optimal selling price, the optimal replenishment cycles, and the optimal produ...
