New publication: The Buffer Allocation Problem in production lines: Formulations, solution methods, and instances

Flow production lines with finite buffer capacities are used in practice for mass production, e.g., in the automotive and food industries. The decision regarding the allocation of buffer capacities to mitigate throughput losses from stochastic processing times and unreliable stations is known as the ...

New publication: Task assignment with start time-dependent processing times for personnel at check-in counters

This paper addresses a task assignment problem encountered by check-in counter personnel at airports. The problem consists of assigning multiskilled agents to a sequence of tasks in check-in counters. Because each task’s ending time is fixed to comply with the flight schedule, its processing time ...

New publication: Optimization of buffer allocations in flow lines with limited supply

The supply of flow lines is often assumed to be unlimited or to follow certain distributions. However, this assumption may not always be realistic, as flow lines are usually an integral part of a supply chain where raw material is replenished based on some rule. We therefore include the limited ...
