  1. 1. Heuristic Mathematical Programming Methods for Lot-sizing, Inventory Control, and Distribution Cost Estimation in the Supply Chain

    Author : Björn Samuelsson; Athanasios Migdalas; Anders Segerstedt; Sven Axsäter; Leonidas Pitsoulis; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Dynamic lot size; Multi-echelon inventory systems; Supply network optimization; Distribution; Location analysis; Distribution cost approximation; Industrial Logistics; Industriell logistik;

    Abstract : The supply function has an important role to support the business to create a customer value. Two important parts of this process is to have the warehouses and production sites in the right location and to have the right items stocked at the right level. This thesis is concerned with those two parts of the supply chain management.

    Abstract : In linkage analysis or, in a wider sense, gene mapping one searches for disease loci along a genome. This is done by observing so called marker genotypes (alleles) and phenotypes (affecteds/unaffecteds) of a pedigree set, i.e. READ MORE

  3. 3. Stochastic Planning of Smart Electricity Distribution Networks

    Author : Manuel Alejandro Alvarez Perez; Sarah K. Rönnberg; Math Bollen; Jin Zhong; Luleå tekniska universitet; []

    Abstract : The penetration of intermittent Distributed Generation (DG) brought additional uncertainty to the system operation and planning. To cope with uncertainties the Distribution System Operator (DSO) could implement several strategies. READ MORE

  4. 4. The Information-Theoretic Cost of Learning Fading Channels

    Author : Wei Yang; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; multiple antennas; finite blocklength; outage capacity; block-fading channel; Shannon capacity; quasi-static fading;

    Abstract : Recent results in communication theory suggest that significant throughput gains in wireless fading networks can be achieved by exploiting network coordination (e.g., CoMP, network MIMO, and interference alignment), provided that each node in the network has perfect channel knowledge.

  5. 5. Coordinated control of Multi-Stage Inventory System

    Author : Johan Marklund; Produktionsekonomi; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Inventory systems; multi-echelon; stochastic; decentralization; centralized control; distribution system; divergent system; echelon-stock; installation-stock.;

    Abstract : This thesis is based on three scientific papers dealing with different models for coordinated control of multi-stage inventory systems. The ability to control multi-echelon inventory systems, is paramount for reducing tied up capital and inventory costs in large distribution systems. READ MORE
