A new efficient genetic algorithm-Taguchi-based approach for multi-period inventory routing problem

Amin Farahbakhsh; Amir Saman Kheirkhah

Volume 12, Issue 4 , December 2023, , Pages 397-413


  The inventory routing problem arises from the combination of the vehicle routing problem and the vendor-managed inventory problem. In this paper, we present a mathematical model and a novel genetic algorithm for solving the multi-period inventory routing problem. The objective is to supply products to ...  Read More

Parametric Optimization (GMAW) for the improvement of Mild Steel weld strength using Response Surface Technique

Silas Oseme Okuma; Martins Ufuoma Eki; John Damilola Oluwafemi; Chukwuekum Orumgbe

Volume 11, Issue 4 , December 2022, , Pages 390-398


  The most desired strength value in any welding process is an excellent Ultimate Tensile Strength (UTS) of the weld in respect to the parent metal. Welding process parameters should be monitored and reviewed on a continuous basis due to the increased demand for structural and industrial materials with ...  Read More

Fatin Ishraq; Rumaisa Ahmed; Joytun Nisa Joti

Volume 10, Issue 3 , September 2021, , Pages 238-250


  3D printing or additive manufacturing is a technology in which 3D objects are printed by depositing a thin layer of material layer-by-layer until a final product is produced. In this research work, it has been focused on the fabrication of a Portable 3D Printer for the manufacturing of sample parts by ...  Read More

Total quality management and quality engineering
Simultaneous optimization of quantitative and ordinal responses using Taguchi method

S. Pal; S. Gauri

Volume 7, Issue 2 , September 2018, , Pages 184-205


  In the real world, the overall quality of a product is often represented partly by the measured values of some quantitative variables and partly by the observed values of some ordinal variables. The settings for the manufacturing processes of such products are required to be optimized considering the ...  Read More
