  • Dynamic Priority Rule Selection for Solving Multi-objective Job Shop
           Scheduling Problems

    • Abstract: Publication date:  Feb 2018
      Source:Universal Journal of Industrial and Business Management  Volume  6  Number  1  Aydin Teymourifar   Ozan Bahadir   and Gurkan Ozturk   In this paper, a new approach has been suggested for solving the multi-objective job shop scheduling problem, in which, simple priority rules are used dynamically, according to the varied state of the scheduling environment. The rules assign priority to the jobs that waiting in queues based on their features and/or the scheduling environment. Since the real scheduling environments are generally dynamic, it is better to use different rules during the scheduling according to the state of the shop floor at each decision time. Based on this approach, a new algorithm is designed, which uses different rules over the scheduling time. This approach can be easily applied to solve the real scheduling problems of the manufacturing systems. The algorithm has been compared with some classic rules from the literature. The results show that the proposed approach is more effective than using a fixed priority rule.

  • Identification of Supply Chain Performance Indicators: Case Study of Costa
           Rican Coffee Production

    • Abstract: Publication date:  Feb 2018
      Source:Universal Journal of Industrial and Business Management  Volume  6  Number  1  Mercedes Montero   Ann-Christine Schmalenberg   Olman Quirós   and Reiner Doluschitz   Background: coffee production is one of the most important agricultural products for Costa Rica, especially because of the large proportion of small and medium farmers involved. This research intends to provide the identification of performance indicators for coffee production using the Asociación de Productores Agropecuarios de las Comunidades de Acosta y Aserrí (ASOPROAAA), as case of study. Methods: 21 expert surveys were conducted, based on ASOPROAAA and its farmers. Results: indicators of performance were measured in each of the sustainability dimensions. Farmers' record keeping was a problem; however, data was collected and double checked by participants. Conclusion: the identification of supply chain performance indicators was possible in all the sustainability dimensions, benchmarking of these results with other Costa Rican companies would require further research. The identified indicators can be used as a first approach for sustainable performance in coffee, since they were adapted to the production system and its specific characteristic.
