  • Venkatakrishnan, K.; Hee, C.W.; Sivakumar, N.R.; Ngoi, Kok Ann Bryan (2002-01)
    Femtosecond laser pulse has been used for the machining of the gratings primarily due to its superior advantages over conventional continuous wave (CW) and long pulse lasers for micromachining. In this paper, we develop a ...
  • Hsiao, Wayne; Chun, Jung-Hoon (2003-01)
    This paper presents the results of an ongoing effort to develop a direct solder bumping process for electronics packaging. The proposed process entails delivering molten droplets onto specific locations on electronic devices ...
  • Xiong, M.H.; Tor, Shu Beng; Bhatnagar, Rohit; Venkataramanaiah, S. (2004-01)
    This paper presents an optimal method and a heuristic approach which aims at maximizing the profit when responding to a set of customer enquiries under limited capacity. The model takes into consideration the quantity of ...
  • Reddy, K. Rama Bhupal; Xie, Na; Subramaniam, Velusamy (2004-01)
    To date, group scheduling research has primarily focused on examining the performance of different group heuristics under various experimental conditions. However, the dynamic selection of group heuristics has not received ...
  • Gershwin, Stanley B.; Maggio, Nicola; Matta, Andrea; Tolio, Tullio; Werner, Loren M. (2002-01)
    The goal of the research described here is to develop tools to assist the rapid analysis and design of manufacturing systems. The methods we describe are based on mathematical models of production systems. We combine earlier ...
  • Teo, Chee Chong; Bhatnagar, Rohit; Graves, Stephen C. (2005-01)
    We develop an extension to the tactical planning model (TPM) for a job shop by the third author. The TPM is a discrete-time model in which all transitions occur at the start of each time period. The time period must be ...
  • Poh, Y. L.; Nee, Andrew Y. C.; Youcef-Toumi, Kamal; Ong, S. K. (2005-01)
    By enhancing a real scene with computer generated objects, Augmented Reality (AR), has proven itself as a valuable Human-Computer Interface (HCI) in numerous application areas such as medical, military, entertainment and ...
  • Gershwin, Stanley B. (2003-01)
    We review MIT research in manufacturing systems engineering, and we describe current and possible future research activities in this area. This includes advances in decomposition techniques, optimization, token-based control ...
  • Tran, D. V.; Lam, Yee Cheong; Zheng, H. Y.; Murukeshan, V. M.; Chai, J.C.; Hardt, David E. (2005-01)
    This paper reports the surface morphologies and ablation of crystalline silicon wafers irradiated by infra-red 775 nm Ti:sapphire femtosecond laser. The effects of energy fluences (below and above single-pulse modification) ...
  • Ngoi, Kok Ann Bryan; Venkatakrishnan, K.; Stanley, P.; Lim, L.E.N. (2002-01)
    Photomasks are the backbone of microfabrication industries. Currently they are fabricated by lithographic process, which is very expensive and time consuming since it is a several step process. These issues can be addressed ...
  • Fu, Yongqi; Ngoi, Kok Ann Bryan (2004-01)
    Three types of focused ion beam machine: focused ion beam milling (FIB milling), focused ion beam lithography (FIB lithography), and focused ion beam direct deposition (FIB deposition), are described in detail to compare ...
  • Ming, X.G.; Lu, Wen Feng (2003-01)
    To satisfy new market requirements, manufacturing industry has shifted from mass production that takes advantage of the scale of production, to quality management that optimizes the internal enterprise functions, to ...
  • Xiong, M.H.; Tor, Shu Beng; Bhatnagar, Rohit; Venkataramanaiah, S. (2003-01)
    For most Smaller Manufacturing Enterprises (SMEs), how to manage customer enquiries at the customer enquiry stage is of great importance to maintain the competitive advantage and secure future customer orders. A lack of ...
  • Xiong, M.H.; Tor, Shu Beng; Khoo, L.P.; Bhatnagar, Rohit (2002-01)
    Customer demand fulfillment is the business process within a company that determines how the customer demand is fulfilled. A rush order is the last minute customer order after the production plan of a company has been ...
  • Zhang, W.Y.; Tor, Shu Beng; Britton, G.A.; Deng, Y.M. (2002-01)
    The relative significance of upstream design activity to downstream design activity is widely recognized, due to its critical role in determining the final product’s functionality. Although there are now some general ...
  • Tor, Shu Beng; Britton, G.A.; Zhang, W.Y. (2003-01)
    The use of function has been recognized as an important part of the design process over last two decades, especially at the conceptual design stage, due to its critical role in determining the final product’s functionality. ...
  • Rzepniewski, Adam K.; Hardt, David E. (2003-01)
    In the application of cycle-to-cycle control to manufacturing processes, the model of the process reduces to a gain matrix and a pure delay. For a general multiple input – multiple output process, this matrix shows the ...
  • Kua, C.H.; Yang, C.; Goh, S.; Isabel, R.; Youcef-Toumi, Kamal; Lam, Yee Cheong (2006-01)
    Effective dipole moment method has been widely accepted as the de facto technique in predicting the dielectrophoretic force due to the non-uniform electric field. In this method, a finite-particle is modeled as an equivalent ...
  • Raheja, Amritpal Singh; Reddy, K. Rama Bhupal; Subramaniam, Velusamy (2003-01)
    Reactive repair of a disrupted schedule is a better alternative to total rescheduling, as the latter is a time consuming process and also results in shop floor nervousness. The schedule repair heuristics reported in the ...
  • Zhang, W.Y.; Tor, Shu Beng; Britton, G.A. (2004-01)
    This paper presents an intelligent, hybrid system for stamping process planning in progressive die design. The system combines the flexibility of blackboard architecture with case-based reasoning. The hybrid system has the ...
