  • Evaluation of the effectiveness of methods and criteria for product
           classification in the warehouse
    • Authors: Augustyn Lorenc, Maciej Szkoda, Andrzej Szarata, Ilona Jacyna-GoÅ?da
      Pages: 147 - 164
      Abstract: The paper presents an algorithm for calculating the approximate picking time. In order to perform a simulation, the PickupSimulo software was developed. For this purpose, the PHP language and MySQL relational databases were used. The PickupSimulo makes it possible to define the warehouse topology, solve the product allocation problem (PAP) based on pre-defined criteria and calculate an approximate time of the picking process for that product layout. The warehouse under analysis enables the stocking of over 22,000 pallets. Two variants were analysed. In the first one, the product weight does not matter, whilst in the other the picker must make sure the lightest products are placed at the top of the logistic unit. Such an approach reduces the risk of damaging light products by heavy ones. The research results show that the presented method enables a reduction of the total warehouse costs by 10–16%.

  • Multi-objective invasive weeds optimisation algorithm for solving
           simultaneous scheduling of machines and multi-mode automated guided
           vehicles
    • Authors: Hojat Nabovati, Hassan Haleh, Behnam Vahdani
      Pages: 165 - 188
      Abstract: In this paper, a novel model is presented for machines and automated guided vehicles' simultaneous scheduling, which addresses an extension of the blocking job shop scheduling problem, considering the transferring of jobs between different machines using a limited number of multi-mode automated guided vehicles. Since the model is strictly NP-hard, and because objectives contradict each other, a meta-heuristic algorithm called 'multi-objective invasive weeds optimisation algorithm' with a new chromosome structure which guarantees the feasibility of solutions is developed to solve the proposed problem. Two other meta-heuristic algorithms namely 'non-dominated sorting genetic algorithm' and 'multi-objective particle swarm optimisation algorithm' are applied to validate the solutions obtained by the developed multi-objective invasive weeds optimisation algorithm. A certain method was applied to select the algorithm with the best performance. The result of ranking the algorithms indicated that the developed multi-objective invasive weeds optimisation algorithm had the best performance in terms of solving the mentioned problems.

  • Machine cell formation for dynamic part population considering part
           operation trade-off and worker assignment using simulated annealing-based
           genetic algorithm
    • Authors: Hojat Nabovati, Hassan Haleh, Behnam Vahdani
      Pages: 189 - 216
      Abstract: In this study, an integrated mathematical model for the cell formation problem is proposed considering the dynamic production environment. The proposed model yields, manufacturing cells, part families and worker's assignment simultaneously by allowing a cubic search space of 'machine-part-worker' in the CMS. The resources are aggregated into manufacturing cells based on the optimal process route among the user specified multiple routes. The model interprets flexibility in the processing of subsets of a part operation sequence in the different production mode (internal production/subcontracting part operation). It is a tangible advantage during unavailability of worker and unexpected machine break down occurring in the real world. The proposed cell formation problem has been solved by using a simulated annealing-based genetic algorithm (SAGA). The algorithm imparts synergy effect to improve intensification, diversification in the cubic search space and increases the possibility of achieving near-optimum solutions. To evaluate the computational performance of the proposed approach the algorithm is tested on a number of randomly generated instances. The results substantiate the efficiency of the proposed approach by minimising overall cost. [Received: 17 August 2018; Accepted: 28 July 2019]

  • Buffer allocation, equipment selection and line balancing optimisation in
           unreliable production lines
    • Authors: Hojat Nabovati, Hassan Haleh, Behnam Vahdani
      Pages: 217 - 246
      Abstract: This paper presents an integrated optimisation model to simultaneously solve buffer allocation, equipment selection and line balancing problems in unreliable production line systems. The considered unreliable serial production line consists of <i>m</i> workstations and <i>m</i> − 1 intermediate buffers. The objective is to maximise the system throughput level. A decomposition method is used to estimate the production line throughput. The decision variables in the formulated optimal design problem are buffer levels, types of equipment and the sets of tasks assigned to the workstations. An efficient algorithm, based on the nonlinear threshold accepting algorithm (NLTA) is proposed to solve this problem. The efficiency of the proposed approach is compared to existing algorithms and first tested on a simple assembly line balancing type-2 problem (SALB-2). Here the objective is to minimise the cycle time with a fixed number of workstations. In the second numerical experiment, the integrated model is solved using the NLTA, and its performance is compared to that of the great deluge algorithm (GDA) through several numerical examples.

      Abstract: Robotic assembly lines (RALs) are utilised due to the flexibility it provides to the overall production system. Industries mainly focus on reducing the operation costs involved. From the literature survey it can be seen that only few research has been reported in the area of cost related optimisation in RALs. This paper focuses on proposing a new model in RALs with the main objective of maximising line efficiency by minimising total assembly line cost. The proposed model can be used production managers to balance a RAL in an efficient manner. Since simple assembly line balancing problem is classified as NP-hard, proposed problem due to additional constraints also falls under the same category. Particle swarm optimisation (PSO) and differential evolution (DE) are applied as the optimisation tool to solve this problem. The performances of this proposed algorithm are tested on a set of reported benchmark problems. From the comparative study, it is found that the proposed DE algorithm obtain better solutions for the majority of the problems tested.
