Questions related to Industrial Engineering

Early production of products is also considered as "Excess finished goods inventory" in lean wastes. If early production is considered in both types of wastes such as 'overproduction' and 'Inventory', there will be the chance of recurrence of same waste in different categories. How to avoid this duplication?

Hello, I'm Deorita from Parahyangan Catholic University majoring in Industrial Engineering. As for now, I'm currently doing my thesis about the selection of HPLC machine supplier using ANP method. Can someone recommend me a sample of questionnaire on ANP method, or a suggestion on how to structure the question for the questionnaire?

Thank you so much for all the kind help.

Best regards,

Deorita.

I really appreciate every answer because this project is going to be my Master Degree Thesis.

I have already studied a lot of softwares, such as: Ecolizer, openLCA, GaBi, SimaPro, Ecochain and Umberto, and many databases: Eco-invent, US LCI, ELCD, Environmental footprint and BioEnergieDAT.

*This paper is a project to build a new function. I will propose a form of this function and I let people help me to develop the idea of this project, and in the same time we will try to applied this function in other sciences as quantum mechanics, probability, electronics …*

Some journals give reviewers 60 days, others give 40 days, 30 days, or 20 days to review a paper. MDPI journals give only 10 days, but it can be extended if the reviewer needs more time. In my opinion, 10 days might be too short, but 60 days is excessive. Allowing 60 days for a peer review is adding to the response time unnecessarily, and disadvantaging the authors. I can thoroughly review a paper in a day (if I dedicate myself to it), or two at most. A reviewer should only accept a review request if they are not too busy to do it in the next 10 to 20 days. I have encountered situations in which a reviewer agrees to the review, but does not submit the review at the end of 60 days, wasting those valuable 60 days from the author. What do you think the allowed time for reviewers should be?

Dear all, I want to solve three or four objective functions with the four or five decision variables (no. of decision variable> no of the objective function). There may be some game-theoretic approach to solve the problem. But I am searching for some MATHEMATICA code (Like the Direct Search method or other computational technique) to solve the problem. If there have, please suggest (other than GA).

Thank you.

In daily life single period and multi period inventory system is very necessary things. When the selling period is fixed that is we cant sell things outside that fixed time then it is called may be single period. Lets talk about it what is the actual definition.

A huge amount of water is evaporated to cool down and solidify the liquid metal strands coming out of bottom of CCM mould. The steam contains significant latent and sensible heat energy, besides the vapour is significantly devoid of microbes and soluble salt. Can the water vapour and/or its heat content be reutilized to increase thermal efficiency of Continous casting, theoretically and economically (like distilled water production, reinjecting vapour to water treatment plant to reduce mineral load in water to be treated as well as water requirement)? If not, then why? (except for very low energy saving but high investment to recycle the heat)

I need to find out what is the best algorithm to resolve this kind of assembly line. Somebody can say if the best way is modify some existing method?

Dear researchers,

I have the following questions:

1. I want to know how I can read a number of TABLES and PARAMETERS from excel?

2. How can I make GAMS show the zero values as "0" in the results? Obviously, the program drops them...

I know how to convert one table or parameter from GAMS to excel. When I use 'xls2gms' or 'gdxxrw', it is ok but just for one table, for example.

However, in my case study, there is a sheet that contains many tables, and I don't know how to convert them to the assigned table names in GAMS. The ide shows an error with this regard!

Thanks for your help in advance.

NFF (No Fault Found) has the major contribution to reduce the operational availability, resources and increase the cost of Maintenance of any aircraft in aviation. The likely causes are human factors, maintenance training, faults reporting, fault analysis, corrective Maintenance and procedures. However, mitigating these issues are completely a tedious process wherein management skill can't achieve the desired results. So, what are the other parameters/ technical factors that need to be considered?

As we know in this pandemic, everything seems quite hard to control. I hope the researches could discuss and share their thoughts for researching at this time. Especially related in Industrial Engineering.

Hi,

I'm an master student of advanced information systems and my bachelor degree was in industrial engineering. My field of interest in industrial engineering was quality related topics like SQC, SPC, DoE, Six Sigma, etc. Now I'm looking for a proper topic for my master thesis which combines Data Science and Quality related topics.

How do you measure the performance/utilization of a healthcare department/clinic? What methods/approaches/techniques/tools do you use or suggest? You have to consider the human factor. The resources of healthcare include nurses, doctors, technicians, assistants, etc.

Is the performance of a doctor measured by the number of patients treated? Or is the time spent by a nurse with patients, or is the performance of a clinic/department/hospital measured by the number of patients treated during the day?

A correct interpretation of reliability analysis is determinative for researchers and industrial developers to refine their design and also prepare proper maintenance scheduling and safety analysis. However, I still see that many designers prefer to use classical safety factors instead of reliability analysis techniques. what's your sense about this.

For example, imagine that you are going to buy a bearing and I say you this bearing's reliability is 94% for the expected life of 5 years. it means that if you test 100 bearings under normal performance, almost 6 of them should fail after 5 years. does this analysis makes sense for you in your research and development?

and if the answer is yes, how do you use the outcome of reliability analysis in your research area. the answer is important for me because I am going to start developing commercial software for reliability analysis and it is important to see what are the expectations of experts from the reliability analysis methods.

Thanks,

Sajad

Hello,

I am a novice researcher in the field of clustering algorithms. DBSCAN was the one which its mathematical background draw my attention to itself but unfortunately, except biological- and medical-oriented fields, I couldn't imagine any other use cases for the algorithm. I would appreciate if anyone introduce me some useful resources which DBSCAN is used in fields except medical or biological ones. According to my bachelor degree (Industrial Engineering), I'm particularly looking for industrial and manufacturing instances.

Regards.

Research strategies in many institutions require to carefully investigating the future trends in disciplines. Other plans such as hiring researchers, establishing new labs, … are based on the how we look to the future of research and our understanding what others working in. I hope that researchers discuss this important issue and exchange the related experiences and knowledge.

I am not sure if there exists a novel method to relate the state estimation method to the prediction of a survival function or reliability distribution function, which is more like a conventional method, in prognostics. Can anyone answer the question please?

My problem consists:

1. More than thousand Constraints and Variables

2. It is purely 0-1 programming i.e. all variables are binary.

3. Kindly note that I am not a good programmer.

Please provide me some links of books or videos discussing application of GA in Matlab for solving 0-1 programming with large number of variables and constraints.

I have gone through many YouTube videos but they have taken examples with only two or three variables without integer restrictions.

Lean as in Lean Six Sigma is a very structured and mature approach. In software engineering there are few attempts to re-invent the wheel by resurfacing techniques used for over 50 years in manufacturing as "new approaches".

Although a laudable initiative in many cases it is just a smoke screen for certifications and training courses.

What are some topics related to production and industrial engineers?

I am looking for INDEXED conferences in these field, possibly with an impact factor. Any clues ?

It doesnt matter where ...

While reading about high technological topics like dynamic scheduling in FMS in the context of Industry 4.0, being an Industrial Engineer, I find it very difficult to study about handling dynamic environment with codes. At the same time, I think this research topic is a hot area for research.

When I read about lean management tools such as value stream mapping. I find it easy. At the same time, I think this research topic is already being implemented everywhere and research papers are available with case studies.

Which topic should I choose? (trending+difficult vs easy+already implemented)

I am an undergraduate student in Production and Industrial Engineering, looking for a research proposal for applying in a doctoral program. Also, it would be great if you suggest some read. Or any suggestions?

As I know, the conventional cutting stock problem can be easily solved by column generation.

Now I want to carry these cuts by truck carriers and this time we want to minimize the number of trucks for transport. ( of course, less waste of stock leads to less number of trucks)

How to formulate this problem in one ILP? Which meets the orders for cuts and also minimize used truck carriers.

Any paper or other resources to help me with this problem?

There are lots of Optimization method /Evolutionary algorithms (EAs) in literature. Some of them is more effective (for solving linear/nonlinear problem) compared to other.

If we share our experiences then it will be helpful for all of us who are in the field of optimization. I may be missing some methods, researcher are requested to add those algorithms and the way of use like many model needs initial value, weight, velocity, different type of writing objective function etc. I am facing some problems that’s why I make this format which will definitely help me as well as all other researchers in this field. Expecting resourceful and cordial cooperation.

Is there any relation between block chain and inventory management?

There is a need to automate several industrial tasks which may require a number of humans and robots to perform it. Some can be done only using robots. Say there is a task X. My output looks like: Task X can be done if around 4 robots are assigned to it or 1 human and 1 robot are assigned to it. My input will describe the task based on which an algorithm will compute the desired output.

So basically could you share some research work where resource requirement for industrial tasks are modeled mathematically or even empirically? Or could you point to some existing algorithms in the domain of industrial engineering or otherwise where researchers have tackled the problem of identifying how much resources need to be thrown on a task to finish it successfully?

I have started programming binary bat algorithm to solve knapsack problem. i have misunderstanding of position concept in binary space :

Vnew= Vold+(Current-Best) * f;

S= 1/ ( 1+Math.exp(-Vnew));

X(t+1) = { 1 S>Rnd , 0 Rnd>=S)

the velocity updating equation use both position from previous iteration (Current) and global best position (Best). In continuous version of BA, the position is real number but in the binary version, position of bat represented by binary number. In Knapsack Problem it means whether the item is selected or not. In the binary version, transfer function is used to transform velocity from real number to binary number. I'm confused whether the position in BBA is binary or real number ? if binary then the (Current-Best) can only be 1 - 0, 0 - 1, 1 - 1, etc. and if real number then how to get the continous representation if no continous equation to update the position (in original BA, the position updating equation is X(t+1) = X(t) + Vnew

Sometimes its very necessary to find appropriate journals to submit articles but its also necessary to know the impact factor.

Many journals uses impact factors whereas some are using cite score. Is there really a big differences between them or not? Some journals uses SJR,SNIP score, what is the meaning of these?

In optimization problem often we use local optimum but is it global? Or are there any meta-heuristics algorithm to obtain global solution? If there any then what is the name of that algorithm and if possible how we can get that solution?

I am modeling a cross-docking service center and am trying to generate the items on the truck to be unloaded, sorted, and then loaded again. I need to make the trucks themselves entities so they can seize a door.

Some thermodynamics confusion.

Assume ideal gases for simplicity.

Are kinetic energy (K) and internal energy (U) for gases, different from one another? As I understand,

dU = n C

_{v }dtAnd if some work is done by a gas adiabatically, then

heat change dQ = 0

Now we can have two cases:

1) Expansion occurs at the cost of internal energy of the gas and so gas temperature falls as the gas expands. So, U decreases.

Or,

2) As the temperature falls, the velocity of the gas molecules deceases too which then consecutively lowers the K of the gas.

So, are K and U the same physical quantity? Do they imply the same physical parameter of a system or something different? Or, may be both K and U undergo change in such a process?

Another issue is if work (classically) done = P V

then dW = P dV is seen more often. I am aware that W is not an exact differential, still shouldn't it be dW = P dV + V dP, as one can intuitively guess that during an adiabatic expansion of a gas, as volume increases, pressure will change (fall?) too? Why V dP is often left out?

Any comment will be appreciated.

I know AHP can be used to calculate weights of qualitative variables like flexibility and safety.

I want to be able to also consider quantitative variables (like cost and material handling distance) and then make a choice of the most appropriate layout design for each construction phase; while considering both the qualitative and quantitative variables together.

Problem Statement:

A television manufacturer has decided to produce and sell two different types of TV sets, small and big. They assure that the small will give a profit of $300 per unit and the big a profit of $500 per unit. They have one production plant with four departments: molding, soldering, assembly and inspection. Each TV set is processed in sequence through these four departments. Each department has a limited capacity given by a maximum number of working hours per year. We assume that they can sell all the TV sets they are able to produce and the market is not a restriction.

_{1}+u_{2}+2u_{3}+2u_{4}>=300 [Small TV Sets]5u

_{1}+u_{2}+u_{3}+5u_{4}>=500 [Big TV Sets]u

_{1},u_{2},u_{3},u_{4}>=0My question is: What is the physical interpretation of the dual variables or u? Is it

**cost/hr**or**profit/hr**for a specific operation?If I consider cost, then the objective function is OK. But in case of constraints, cost cannot be greater than profit. Again, if I consider profit, then the constraints are OK. But the objective function profit cannot be minimized. I have gone through many books, but still I am confused. If anybody kindly helps me, I shall be highly obliged.

like various optimization techniques, Can system dynamics be used in facility location and waste allocation?

Looking for problems faced in industries in the field of manufacturing systems that I can attempt to address as part of my research.
