  • Optimal control of a stochastic production inventory system with
           controllable backorder rate and investment to reduce inventory level
           variability
    • Authors: Abdelghani Echchabi, Mohammed Mispah Said Omar, Abdullah Mohammed Ayedh
      Pages: 149 - 164
      Abstract: This paper develops an inventory model that allows the backorder rate and inventory level variability to be control variables to widen the scope of applications of Lin's (2017a) model. We assume that the backorder rate is dependent on the amount of shortages according to a negative exponential function and the supplier could offer a backorder price discount on the stock-out item by negotiation to determine a target value of backorder rate and secure more backorders. Moreover, we investigate the impact of investing in inventory level variability reduction on inventory related costs. The objective of this paper is to simultaneously determine the optimal backorder price discount, inventory level variability, and switch-over control parameters <i>m</i> and <i>M</i> to minimise the long-run total expected cost of the system and improve the competitive edge. Numerical examples are also given to demonstrate the benefits of the model.
      Keywords: production inventory model; backorder price discount; investment; variable production rate; backorder rate

  • Cost optimisation of a discrete-time retrial queue with Bernoulli
           feedback and starting failure
    • Authors: Abdelghani Echchabi, Mohammed Mispah Said Omar, Abdullah Mohammed Ayedh
      Pages: 165 - 196
      Abstract: In this paper, we explore the performance characteristics of a discrete-time Geo/G/1 retrial queue with Bernoulli feedback where the server is subjected to starting failure. On the arrival of a customer, the server may either resume its service successfully with probability υ or may not resume its service successfully with probability <i>ῡ</i> = 1 − <i>υ</i> due to some faults which in turn force the server to repair and the customer may join the orbit. The service time, retrial time and repair time are general distributed. The purpose of this paper is two-fold. Firstly, we use generating function method and supplementary variable technique to derive expressions for system size, orbit size and other performance measures. Secondly, for a cost-effective system, we have found the optimal values of some critical system parameters such that the total system cost is minimised using <i>particle swarm optimisation (PSO) technique</i>. Finally, sensitivity analysis is also provided.

  • Impact of product-package design on material waste due to stock-induced
           consumption phenomenon
    • Authors: Neeta Sharma, Prem Vrat
      Pages: 197 - 211
      Abstract: This paper attempts to examine the impact of product-package design in influencing the consumption behaviour due to stock-induced consumption phenomenon. The exploratory research presented in this paper shows how a design feature in a product or packaging can enhance consumption rate over the normal consumption resulting in waste. It also reports the findings of primary research data collected through controlled condition experimentation on two consumable products from FMCG category - toothpaste and shampoo. It is shown that a bigger orifice size results in extra consumption in tubed or bottled products and the discounts offered by the manufacturer on bigger size products may be more than offset by the excess stock-induced consumption due to orifice size. The orifice size and product viscosity play significant role in controlling stock-induced material waste. The paper suggests the need for standardisation of orifice size and product viscosity to minimise the material waste in such products. Additionally, this research explores the effect of instantaneous volumetric stock availability for consumption in toothpaste tube on its consumption rate and attempts to estimate stock-dependent consumption parameters α and β for the consumption of toothpaste.
      Keywords: stock-dependent demand; stock-induced consumption; product and package design; sustainable consumption; orifice size; material waste

  • The simulation of elevator traffic flow based on VC++
    • Authors: Renyu Luo, Qingsheng Guo, Huali Wang, Jianfeng Zhong, Tianming Yu, Xueliang Wang, Renkai Luo
      Pages: 212 - 224
      Abstract: Elevators have become an indispensable tool for people. If each program is used in practice, it will waste a lot of human resources, material resources and financial resources, so the elevator simulation platform has played its advantages. Among them, the generation of traffic flow is the key factor. In order to realise the reasonable configuration of the elevator, it is necessary to accurately simulate the traffic flow in each period of the building, and the MATLAB program is calling by VC++ to complete the simulation. Through this method, the traffic flow at different times can be simulated by simple operation, and this method can fully play the advantages of the respective programs.
      Keywords: elevator traffic flow; VC++; MATLAB; simulation; traffic pattern; elevator; starting floors; destination floors; Poisson distribution; up peak traffic mode

  • Modular product architecture to manage product development complexity
    • Authors: Ahm Shamsuzzoha, Petri Helo, Sujan Piya, Mohammed Alkahtani
      Pages: 225 - 247
      Abstract: Shorter product life cycles, together with heterogeneous market demands, are forcing manufacturing companies to eliminate or reduce complexities in product development and supply chain. These complexities arise due to high level of interdependencies between component interfaces and supply chain participants. To address such complexities, companies need to focus on their product architecture and supply chain design. In this research, the impact of product architecture on developing modular products is highlighted. This modular principle is elaborated with the objective to reduce product development complexities. A case example is presented to define the importance of product architecture with the help of a design structure matrix (DSM) tool to reduce product development complexity. In addition, various drivers responsible for supply chain complexities are identified and categorised, and the relationship between product architecture and supply chain complexities are defined within the scope of this research.

      Pages: 248 - 265
      Abstract: This paper explores the factors affecting supply chain performance of dairy industry and to develop a framework using exploratory factor analysis (EFA) technique. A pre-structured questionnaire survey was conducted to explore the key factors of three interfaces of dairy supply chain viz. procurement, production, and distribution. The respondents were requested to rate the 50 statements/issues of different dairy supply chain practices on five-point Likert scale. The results of EFA grouped the 50 statements into eleven factors. The results reveal that dairy industry necessities substantial development in the supply chain practices in order to be competitive and proficient. Further, the study is helpful for the firms in the milk processing sector for handling the demand fluctuations, improved product quality, execution of effective information system, process flexibility and hence, enhanced supply chain performance.

  • Design of urban landscape visual simulation system based on
           three-dimensional simulation technology
    • Authors: Song Yang, Jing Yang
      Pages: 266 - 280
      Abstract: Aiming at the problems of inaccurate visual modelling of urban landscape and high cost of the system, a visual simulation system of urban landscape based on three-dimensional simulation technology is proposed and designed. For the hardware part, the overall framework of the system is designed, and the static landscape modelling and dynamic landscape driving are analysed, respectively. For the software part, the development process of the visual simulation system for urban landscape is described, the urban landscape plan is acquired, and the urban landscape model library is constructed. The experimental results show that the accuracy of the visual modelling system for urban landscape designed by the proposed method is over 80%, and the accuracy is good. The highest cost coefficient used in the visual simulation system for urban landscape is 0.7, the cost is low, and the users are satisfied with the system.

  • Selection of optimal assembly strategy at an engine assembly plant using
           fuzzy multi-criteria decision-making tools
    • Authors: L.N. Pattanaik, Abinash Jena
      Pages: 281 - 299
      Abstract: This paper is presenting a methodology to select an optimal assembly strategy using two fuzzy multi-criteria decision making (MCDM) tools as illustrated in a case study of an engine assembly plant. Based on an automotive engine assembly system, the existing challenges and related criteria are identified. Four potential assembly strategies compatible with existing system are developed to address the challenges. Two different fuzzy MCDM tools (VIKOR and TOPSIS) are applied for the multi-criteria problem to select the optimal assembly strategy. Four decision makers (DMs) from middle-level management are involved during the process. A comparison of results from the two MCDM tools is performed to consolidate the decision. For the present case, reconfigurable assembly system (RAS) is found to be the most preferred assembly strategy by both the MCDM tools. The ranking for rest of the alternatives are also found.
