Designing machine operating strategy with simulated annealing and Monte Carlo simulation
This paper describes a simulation-based parameter design (PD) approach for optimizing machine operating strategy under stochastic running conditions. The approach presents a Taguchi-based definition to the PD problem in ...
Simulation-based Six Sigma value function for system-level performance assessment and improvement
The purpose of this paper is to develop a simulation-based value function (VF) that combines multiple key performance indicators (KPIs) into a unified Sigma rating (SR) for system-level performance assessment and improvement. ...
Simulation-based optimization for performance enhancement of public departments
This paper proposes an approach for enhancing the performance of public departments that are characterized by congestion and low efficiency. The proposed approach utilizes discrete-event simulation (DES) tools integrated ...
A Framework for Optimizing the Supply Chain Performance of a Steel Producer
Supply Chain Management (SCM) is focused on developing, optimizing, and operating efficient supply chains. Efficient supply chains are characterized by cost effective decisions, lean flow and structure, high degree of ...
Impact of Capacity Constraints on the Dynamic Response of Two Level Supply Chain
(Springer, Berlin, Heidelberg, 2014)
This paper investigates the impact of capacity constraints on the stability boundaries of two tier supply chain. System dynamic simulation using iThink Software has been applied to explore the impact of different levels ...
