    This paper presents a new extension to ordinary Petri nets (PNs) that uses complex-valued tokens. By allowing two kinds of tokens, "real" and "imaginary," each place marking contains both quantity and type information. Complex-valued token PNs were designed to integrate seamlessly with other popular Petri net extensions such as timed nets, stochastic nets, and colored nets. This simple and intuiti...

  • An extended event graph with negative places and tokens for time window constraints

    We introduce places with negative holding times and tokens with negative token counts into a timed event graph in order to model and analyze time window constraints. We extend the enabling and firing rules for such an extended event graph named a negative event graph (NEG). We develop necessary and sufficient conditions based on the circuits for which the NEG is live, that is, an infinite sequence... View full abstract»

  • Control of Markov chains with safety bounds

    Publication Year: 2005, Page(s):333 - 343

    In an earlier paper, the authors introduced the notion of safety control of stochastic discrete event systems (DESs), modeled as controlled Markov chains. Safety was specified as an upper bound on the components of the state probability distribution, and the class of irreducible and aperiodic Markov chains were analyzed relative to this safety criterion. Under the assumption of complete state obse... View full abstract»

  • Dual constrained single machine sequencing to minimize total weighted completion time

    We study a single-machine sequencing problem with both release dates and deadlines to minimize the total weighted completion time. We propose a branch-and-bound algorithm for this problem. The algorithm exploits an effective lower bound and a dynamic programming dominance technique. As a byproduct of the lower bound, we have developed a new algorithm for the generalized isotonic regression problem... View full abstract»

  • A generic deviation-based approach for synthesis of tolerances

    Publication Year: 2005, Page(s):358 - 368
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (840 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    In this paper, a generic model for the synthesis of tolerances for manufactured parts is presented. The model uses a method of transforming traditional tolerance specifications (as defined in ASME Y14.5M) to a generalized coordinate system (hereinafter referred to as deviation space). Small displacement torsors (SDTs) have been used for representing the deviations. The tolerance synthesis method i... View full abstract»

  • How to reach the dynamic limits of parallel robots? An autonomous control approach

    Publication Year: 2005, Page(s):369 - 380
    Cited by:  Papers (24)

    Based on closed kinematic chains, parallel robots obtain favorable dynamic properties as well as high stiffness. Hence, their application can significantly enlarge the productivity of automated production processes. A control concept for tapping the high potential concerning low cycle times and high path-tracking accuracy is presented. The proposed approach adapts autonomously to changing dynamic ...

    This research is focused on developing trajectory planning tools for the automotive painting industry. The geometric complexity of automotive surfaces and the complexity of the spray patterns produced by modern paint atomizers combine to make this a challenging and interesting problem. This paper documents our efforts to develop computationally tractable analytic deposition models for electrostati... View full abstract»

    In this study, an automatic mold polishing system (AMPS) has been successfully developed. The AMPS integrates with mold geometry process kernel, path planner, process planner, and force control robot into a system. The polishing path is generated and drawn on the three-dimensional mold surface for verification. The AMPS can also automatic process the task planning according to the polishing requir...

    This paper introduces multi-depot vehicle routing problem with fixed distribution of vehicles (MDVRPFD) which is one important and useful variant of the traditional multi-depot vehicle routing problem (MDVRP) in the supply chain management and transportation studies. After modeling the MDVRPFD as a binary programming problem, we propose two solution methodologies: two-stage and one-stage approache... View full abstract»
