    In this survey we have limited ourselves to a general statement of the problem of dynamic relocation, and used this statement to describe a number of representative dynamic relocation techniques. This approach was used mainly to simplify the exposition. The problem statement is probably no more “general” than the composite of the techniques presented, and will undoubtedly require ame...

  • A computer-aided linkage analysis system

    Publication Year: 1965, Page(s):200 - 223

    A technique for analyzing two- and three-dimensional linkages by solving vector equations for position, motion, and force was programmed for a digital computer. A model plex that treats a linkage as one or more vector loops is generated. The program selects the applicable equations for position solution. Algorithms are simplified by storing linkage information in the form of a tree-organized plex. View full abstract»

  • Fabrication and assembly operations, Part V: Production order sequencing

    Between conventional techniques of scheduling and the actual production order sequencing lies a gap which should be bridged to provide a logical system connection between the planning process and the implementation of the shop loading function. Project network techniques, including PERT, generally do not consider the constraints on resources.1,2 It is true that resource utilization can ... View full abstract»

  • Fabrication and assembly operations, Part VI: Parameter values for sequencing control

    The method described makes it possible to assign weights to important priority factors by the use of control variables. A function that in part measures the deviation from a desired system state is optimized by the choice of values of these control variables. Under the assumption that Equation 5 represents the dynamics of the system, Equation 8 provides the system with an input that minimizes the ... View full abstract»

    Methods for allocating resources in shops with fabrication activities are generally based on a particular mathematical model of the shop activities. The methods often assume that the model is completely accurate and that the shop activities are invariant. In practice, however, one or both of these assumptions may be invalid. View full abstract»
