Abstract : A tandem automated guided vehicle (AGV) system deals with grouping workstations into some non-overlapping zones , and assigning exactly one AGV to each zone. This paper presents a new non-linear integer mathematical model to group n machines into N loops that minimizes both inter and intra-loop flows simultaneously. Due to computational difficulties of exact methods in solving our proposed model, a threshold accepting (TA) algorithm is proposed. To show its efficiency, a number of instances generated randomly are solved by this proposed TA and then compared with the LINGO solver package employing the branch-and-bound (B/B) method. The related computational results show that our proposed TA dominates the exact algorithm when the size of instances grows.

Hot torsion test (HTT) has extensively been used to analysis and physically model flow behavior and microstructure evolution of materials and alloys during hot deformation processes. In this test, the specimen geometry has a great influence in obtaining reliable test results. In this paper, the interaction of thermal-mechanical conditions and geometry of the HTT specimen was studied. The commercial finite element package ANSYS was utilized for prediction of temperature distribution during reheating treatment and a thermo-rigid viscoplastic FE code, THORAX.FOR, was used to predict thermo-mechanical parameters during the test for API-X70 micro alloyed steel. Simulation results show that no proper geometry and dimension selection result in non uniform temperature within specimen and predicted to have effects on the consequence assessment of material behavior during hot deformation. Recommendations on finding proper specimen geometry for reducing temperature gradient along the gauge part of specimen will be given to create homogeneous temperature as much as possible in order to avoid uncertainty in consequent results of HTT.

This paper considers identical parallel machines scheduling problem with past-sequence-dependent setup times, deteriorating jobs and learning effects, in which the actual processing time of a job on each machine is given as a function of the processing times of the jobs already processed and its scheduled position on the corresponding machine. In addition, the setup time of a job on each machine is proportional to the actual processing time of the already processed jobs on the corresponding machine, i.e., the setup time of a job is past- sequence-dependent (p-s-d). The objective is to determine jointly the jobs assigned to each machine and the order of jobs such that the total completion time (called TC) is minimized. Since that the problem is NP-hard, optimal solution for the instances of realistic size cannot be obtained within a reasonable amount of computational time using exact solution approaches. Hence, an efficient method based on ant colony optimization algorithm (ACO) is proposed to solve the given problem. The performance of the presented model and the proposed algorithm is verified by a number of numerical experiments. The related results show that ant colony optimization algorithm is effective and viable approache to generate optimal⁄near optimal solutions within a reasonable amount of computational time.

Due to the multiplicity of standards and complex rules; maintenance, repair and servicing of machinery could be done only by the fully qualified and proficient experts. Since the knowledge of such experts is not available all times, using expert systems can help to improve the maintenance process. To address this need and the uncertainty of the maintenance process indicators, this research proposed a Fuzzy Expert Systems (FES) for decision making on the type of service. Since all indicators identified in the literature aren’t important adequately, more influential indicators in the service type selection are chosen using inferential statistical analysis firstly. Then, the fuzzy rules of the knowledge based were designed by these selected indicators. Finally, Inference engine has been designed based on Mamdani model to detect the service type of equipment. This research selected Shemsh Sazan Zanjan Company as a case study to implement the proposed expert system. According to our experiments, the proposed system increases the reliability by suggesting effective ideas that lead to decrease production line breakdowns. The main contribution of this paper is providing a new approach for designing maintenance dynamic FES based on Maintenance Indicators for service type selection that can decrease production line breakdowns.

Project scheduling is one of the most important and applicable concepts of project management. Many project-oriented companies and organizations apply variable cost reduction strategies in project implementation. Considering the current business environments, in addition to lowering their costs, many companies seek to prevent project delays. This paper presents a multi-objective fuzzy mathematical model for the problem of project scheduling with the limitation of multi-skilled resources able to change skills levels, optimizing project scheduling policy and skills recruitment. Given the multi objectivity of the model, the goal programming approach was used, and an equivalent single-objective model was obtained. Since the multi-skilled project scheduling is among the NP-Hard problems and the proposed problem is its extended state, so it is also an NP-Hard problem. Therefore, NSGA II and MOCS meta-heuristic algorithms were used to solve the large-sized model proposed using MATLAB software. The results show that the multi-objective genetic algorithm performs better than the multi-objective Cuckoo Search in the criteria of goal solution distance, spacing, and maximum performance enhancement.

Background: The lighting of the work environment and its quantitative and qualitative characteristics, such as the intensity of the light and the color temperature, as a physical characteristic, have a great impact on the mental health, behavior and performance of people. The physical factors of the work environment, the personality type and behavioral characteristics of people are effective in their efficiency and productivity. Methods: The current research is an interventional and laboratory research which was done in 2022, 35 male students of Tarbiat Modares University were studied. This study was designed in 3 locations with different lighting systems of LED lamps with color temperature of 3000, 4000 and 5000 degrees Kelvin. Stroop test software was used to check cognitive activities and Neo questionnaire was used to determine personality type. Results: The results showed that the average reaction time when facing the LED lamp with a color temperature of 4000 degrees Kelvin in the group of consonant words was the lowest (average response time 601.22 milliseconds) and at a color temperature of 3000 degrees Kelvin in the group of dissonant words the highest value (average 88. 645 milliseconds). The average number of errors in the group of dissonant words was the highest when faced with a color temperature of 3000 degrees Kelvin (the average number of errors was 10.8), the lowest amount of errors was observed in the group of consonant words at a color temperature of 5000 degrees Kelvin (the average number of errors was 2.71 ). Also, according to the obtained results and checking the interference score of the people, which shows the level of their selective attention, it was found that the average interference score at the color temperature of 3000 degrees Kelvin is the highest (average 6.05) and when faced with the color temperature of 4000 degrees Kelvin The lowest value was (average 4.14). The results of investigating the relationship between cognitive activities and the personality type of the subjects studied at different color temperatures showed that there was a negative and significant correlation between the interference score of the personality type of the subjects at a temperature of 3000 degrees Kelvin (P value = 0.33). Also, by examining this relationship at a color temperature of 5000 degrees Kelvin, it was found that there is a negative and significant correlation between the interference score and the interference time (another parameter affecting selective attention) with the personality type of people (P value = 0.42 and 0.38, respectively). = P value) Conclusions: The results of this study showed that the LED lighting system with high color temperature can be effective on people's cognitive performance by reducing errors and increasing attention and reaction time. In order to improve people's cognitive performance, it is suggested to use lighting system with high color temperature in sensitive places.
