    With time-based competition and rapid technology advancements, effective manufacturing scheduling and supply chain coordination are critical to quickly respond to changing market conditions. These problems, however, are difficult in view of inherent complexity and various uncertainties involved. A manufacturing scheduling problem is first formulated within the job shop context with order arrivals,... View full abstract»

    RFID has a history which began with radar in the 1920s and 1930s. Later, transistors made it possible to include lots of chips on a single circuit leading to the tags in use today. The components and functionality of RFID, both active and passive systems, will be explained. The current push for RFID was instituted by Wal-Mart. But, everything has not proceeded according to plan. Presently, there a... View full abstract»

  • Nonlinear Output Regulation: Robust and Adaptive Approach

    Publication Year: 2007, Page(s):nil28 - nil29
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (424 KB)

    Output regulation is one of the most fundamental control problems and it aims to design a feedback controller to achieve asymptotic tracking and disturbance rejection in an uncertain plant. It distinguishes from other problems/approaches in that it can handle a class of reference inputs and disturbances generated by an autonomous system called exosystem. The key technique in handling the output re... View full abstract»

  • Robust dynamic operating model for supply chain with uncertain product demands and raw material supplies

    Publication Year: 2007, Page(s):1 - 5
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (182 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    A dynamic robust operating model is proposed to deal with multiple incommensurable goals for a multi-product, multi-stage supply chain with uncertain product demands and raw material supplies. The uncertainties are modeled as a number of discrete scenarios with certain probabilities. The operating model is a multi-objective dynamic programming problem satisfying several conflict objectives, such a... View full abstract»

    We present in this paper an empirical desired headway model for a single lane car-following theory based on the equation of motion of each vehicle. In this new model, traffic situation is suggested to be divided into car-following and free travel regions, and in car-following area the stimulus is a function of space difference between the current headway and the empirical desired headway with a co...

    Effective disturbance information handling mechanism is indispensable for agile operations of MES (manufacturing execution system). An autonomous multi-agent-based process model for disturbance information incorporating three kinds of information searching models, i.e., broadcast, facilitator and acquaintance model, is first put forward, which facilitates rapid delivering and handling of disturban...

    In this paper, we present a return supply chain super- network model, which consists of m manufacturers, n distributors, and o markets. Manufacturers are assumed to produce homogeneous products; the distributors can return exceed products to manufacturers and the consumers may purchase the products from the distributors according to their economic status. In the model, the mem... View full abstract»

First of all, the input space is divided into multiple regions, local T-S models and controllers are designed in each region, such that the approach precision improves as the fuzzy domain decreases under a constant fuzzy rule. Then, a region controller, which is chosen accor... View full abstract»

    This paper uses the lifting technique to derive the lifted state-space models for non-uniformly sampled multirate systems, and transform the obtained models into the canonical ones. Based on the Kalman filtering principle, we derive the state filtering algorithm by minimizing the estimation error covariance matrix and further compute the state estimates of the original systems by using inverse tra...
