  • 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 ...
  • Aumond, Bernardo D.; El Rifai, Osamah M.; Youcef-Toumi, Kamal (2003-01)
    Surface characteristics such as topography and critical dimensions serve as important indicators of product quality and manufacturing process performance especially at the micrometer and the nanometer scales. This paper ...
  • Wang, S.Z.; Yoon, Soon Fatt (2004-01)
    GaAs-based InGaAsN/GaAs quantum well is found to be very sensitive to growth conditions and ex-situ annealing processes. Annealing could drastically increase the optical quality of GaAs-based InGaAsN/GaAs quantum well. As ...
  • Fu, Yongqi; Ngoi, Kok Ann Bryan (2005-01)
    Holes with different sizes from microscale to nanoscale were directly fabricated by focused ion beam (FIB) milling in this paper. Maximum aspect ratio of the fabricated holes can be 5:1 for the hole with large size with ...
  • Ganesan, Bala; Hardt, David E. (2004-01)
    Micro embossing is the process of fabricating micron-sized features by plastic deformation of a work piece by means of a shaped tool or die. In our work we are concerned with hot embossing of PMMA to produce features in ...
  • Cheong, Michelle L.F.; Bhatnagar, Rohit; Graves, Stephen C. (2005-01)
    Most logistics network design models assume exogenous customer demand that is independent of the service time or level. This paper examines the benefits of segmenting demand according to lead-time sensitivity of customers. ...
  • Cheong, Michelle L.F. (2004-01)
    Logistics has been an important part of every economy and every business entity. The worldwide trend in globalization has led to many companies outsourcing their logistics function to Third-Party Logistics (3PL) companies, ...
  • Qi, Chao; Appa Iyer, Sivakumar; Ganesan, Viswanath Kumar (2005-01)
    This paper analyzes a proposed release controlmethodology, WIPLOAD Control (WIPLCtrl), using a transfer line case modeled by Markov process modeling methodology. The performance of WIPLCtrl is compared with that of CONWIP ...
  • Lu, Wen Feng; Deng, Y.-M. (2004-01)
    Due to the increasing demand of application-specific and/or multi-functional materials, it is necessary to integrate material design and product design. To support such design integration, this paper proposes a methodology ...
  • Noh, Kyungyoon; Saka, Nannaji; Chun, Jung-Hoon (2003-01)
    The Chemical-mechanical polishing (CMP) process is now widely employed in the ultralarge scale integration chip fabrication. Due to the continuous advances in semiconductor fabrication technology and decreasing sub-micron ...
