A decision-support model for operational planning of surface coal mining considering equipment failure
(Peer reviewed; Conference object; Konferansebidrag; Bokkapittel; Chapter, 2016)
This paper presents a decision-support model aiming, primarily, at maximizing the productivity of surface coal mining activities through operational planning and management. The model is formulated based upon mixed integer programming, and it determines the optimal production plan of the shovels and allocation plan of the haul trucks in order to minimize operational cost, fuel consumption as well ...
A Goal Programming Approach for Green Supply Chain Network Optimization
(Chapter; Bokkapittel, 2016-10)
Green supply chain management has been focused by both academicians and practitioners in recent years due to the increased public awareness on environmental problems and sustainable development. In this paper, a decision aided model for green supply chain network design and optimization is proposed to justify both economic and environmental performance in an optimal fashion. The model is formulated ...

An introduction of small-scale intelligent manufacturing system
(Peer reviewed; Konferansebidrag; Conference object; Bokkapittel; Chapter, 2016)
Manufacturing companies in Northern Peripheral and Arctic region are predominately small and medium-sized and face considerable challenges like geographical isolation and a lack of benefits offered by industrial clusters. For the ultimate goal of enhancing their competitiveness in a global market, it is imperative for companies to innovate or adopt innovations in order to quickly response to changes ...
A multi-objective mathematical programming for sustainable reverse logistics network design. Part II: Model application and analysis
(Peer reviewed; Chapter; Bokkapittel, 2016-02)
Reverse logistics has received more and more attention during the past decade due to the increasing public awareness of sustainable development. Because of the fluctuation in both quantity and quality of the reverse material flow, design and planning of reverse logistics network is much more complicated compared with the forward ones. Therefore, it is important to develop decision support tools for ...
