In this paper, one of the most important criterion in public services quality named availability is evaluated by using artificial neural network (ANN). In addition, the availability values are predicted for future periods by using exponential weighted moving average (EWMA) scheme and some time series models (TSM) including autoregressive (AR), moving average (MA) and autoregressive moving average (ARMA). Results based on comparative studies between four methods based on ANN and by considering the several conditions for the effective parameters in ANN show that, the generalized regression method is the best method for predicting the availability. Furthermore, results of the EWMA and three mentioned TSM are also show the better performance of MA model for predicting the availability values in future periods.

This paper focused on scheduling problems arising in a two-machine, identical parts robotic cell configured in a flow shop. Through current research, a mathematical programming model on minimizing cycle time as well operational cost, considering availability of robotic cell as a constraint, is proposed to search for the optimum allocation and schedule of operations to these two machines. Two solution procedures, including weighted sum method and ∊-constraint method are provided. Based on the weighted sum method, like some previous studies, sensitivity analysis on model parameters were done and the optimum solutions were compared with previous results, while the ∊-constraint method can find the Pareto optimal solutions for problems with up to 18 operations in a reasonable time.

 Sequence dependent set-up times scheduling problems (SDSTs), availability constraint and transportation times are interesting and important issues in production management, which are often addressed separately. In this paper, the SDSTs job shop scheduling problem with position-based learning effects, job-dependent transportation times and multiple preventive maintenance activities is studied. Due to learning effects, jobs processing times are not fixed during plan horizon and each machine has predetermined number of preventive maintenance activities. A novel mixed integer linear programming model is proposed to formulate the problem for minimizing Make Span. Owing to the high complexity of the problem; we applied Grey Wolf Optimizer (GWO) and Invasive Weed Optimizer (IWO) to find nearly optimal solutions for medium and large instances. Finally, the computational Results are provided for evaluating the performance and effectiveness of the proposed solution approaches.

In some statistical processes monitoring (SPM) applications, relationship between two or more ordinal factors is shown by an ordinal contingency table (OCT) and it is described by the ordinal Log-linear model (OLLM). Newton-Raphson algorithm methods have also been used to estimate the parameters of the log-linear model. In this paper, the OLLM based processes is monitored using MR and likelihood ratio test (LRT) approaches in Phase I. Some simulation studies are applied to performance evaluation of the proposed approaches in terms of probability of signal under step shifts, drifts and the presence of outliers. Results show that, by imposing the small and moderate shifts in the ordinal log-linear model parameters, the MR statistic has better performance than LRT. In addition, a real case study in dissolution testing in pharmaceutical industry is employed to show the application of the proposed control charts in Phase I.
