  • Multiple-model description and generalised algorithm of
           ship-building wharf scheduling
    • Authors: Boris Sokolov, Vyacheslav Zelentsov, Semyon Potryasaev, Vladimir Kalinin, Oleg Tolpegin
      Pages: 238 - 252
      Abstract: We present a new multiple-model description and generalised algorithm of ship-building wharf scheduling. This description is represented as a special case of the job-shop-scheduling problem with dynamically distributed jobs, resources, flows, structures. The approach is based on a natural dynamic decomposition of the problem and its solution with the help of a modified form of continuous maximum principle coupled with combinatorial optimisation.

  • Agent-based modelling of urban land-use development: modelling and
           simulating households and economic activities location choice
    • Authors: Youssef Bouanan, Seghir Zerguini, Nathalie Gaussier
      Pages: 253 - 273
      Abstract: This article aims to respond to growing concerns about sustainable urbanisation, which in recent years have generated a need for prospective assessment in the field of transport and land-use planning, by predicting future land-use development. We introduce a land use model (part LU of a land use transport interaction model) which aims to simulate households and economic activities location choice within an urban system. We use the agent-based approach to simulate location choices to account for land use changes and to estimate residential and economic activities location. This is a dynamic bottom-up approach with the households and the firms as their basic components. The MUST-B model considers the agents' location choices according to the utility theory and the equilibrium between real estate supply and demand. The model is used to simulate urban land-use development in the urban area of Bordeaux, France.

  • Risk management and design of mitigation plans through discrete events
           simulation and genetic algorithms in offshore wind processes
    • Authors: David Chas Álvarez, Adolfo Lamas Rodríguez, José Antonio Muiña Dono
      Pages: 274 - 292
      Abstract: This paper tackles the difficult task of identifying risk and opportunities quantify them and propose mitigation plans that minimise the impact of the risk in manufacturing projects. For this reason, a discrete events simulation model representative of a manufacturing plant and manufacturing strategy has been developed. This simulation model will be able to identify and assess the risks of the project with regard to risk effect in the schedule or in the manufacturing cost and, on the other hand, simulation model will be used in combination with an optimiser based on genetic algorithms (GAs), allowing the design of new manufacturing strategies or new plant layouts. Finally, the experimental results were obtained customising the simulation model for a real project of manufacturing wind turbine foundations, in particular to the piles that hold the lattice structure (jacket) to the bottom of the sea.
      Keywords: genetic algorithms; risk management; mitigation plans; discrete events simulation; offshore wind processes; jacket

  • Numerical and experimental comparisons of pressed blades for large Francis
           turbine runners manufactured with a reconfigurable pressing setup and a
           conventional setup
    • Authors: Henri Champliaud, Zhengkun Feng
      Pages: 293 - 317
      Abstract: Quebec hydraulic power plants are mainly operated with large Francis turbines due to their ability to comply with a wide range of rates of flow and falls' heights. The variation of hydraulic conditions from one site to another forced engineers to create each time a new design for the runners and consequently lead to different thicknesses, sizes and shapes for the blades. The unit production costs are inevitably high since the punch and die matrices are completely redesigned for the production of a specific batch of blades. In this paper, the authors focus on a reconfigurable setup of punch and die matrices for forming blades from very thick plates offering a flexible alternative to the conventional setup. First, in order to validate the numerical model, a finite element simulation of the pressing process with a continuous conventional punch and die pair is performed. Second, the methodology for setting up a reconfigurable punch and die pair, based on a dense distribution of spherical headed poles, is presented. The model is then inserted in the previous finite element procedure. Numerical results agree well with data collected on blades pressed for the rehabilitation of a hydropower plant in Quebec.
      Keywords: pressing process; multi-point forming; finite element analysis; very thick plate; reconfigurable punch and die; experiments

  • An operating simulation tool for modelling and managing a job shop system
    • Authors: Eleonora Bottani, Marta Rinaldi, Roberto Montanari, Massimo Bertolini, Francesco Zammori
      Pages: 318 - 342
      Abstract: This study analyses the machinery department of a major Italian company, which manufacturers' equipment and plants for the food industry. At present, the machinery department is arranged as a pure job shop and the firm adopts a push strategy: every week the accepted orders are released in the shop floor and sequenced accordingly to the earliest due date dispatching rule, with no pre-emption. Yet, the resulting performance is not satisfactory: often the jobs are not completed within the planned week and work in progress accumulates in the shop floor increasing time and costs. Aiming to improve the current situation, especially in terms of makespan minimisation, the system has been first reproduced using the simulation environment SIMUL8™ and then different dispatching rules have been tested through simulation. Finally, the simulation model was turned into an operating tool that may support the production manager in selecting the most favourable dispatching rule depending on the list of jobs to be processed and on the current system's state. This tool was tested using historical data on the machinery department; the results obtained demonstrated the superiority and robustness of the proposed approach.
