  • Kim, Jongyoon; Gershwin, Stanley B. (2004-01)
    During the past three decades, the success of the Toyota Production System has spurred research in the area of manufacturing systems engineering. Two research fields, productivity and quality, have been extensively studied ...
  • Chen, I-Ming (2003-01)
    This article describes the development of a component-based technology robot system that can be rapidly configured to perform a specific manufacturing task. The system is conceived with standard and inter-operable components ...
  • Yan, Yehai; Chan-Park, Mary Bee-Eng; Yue, Chee Yoon (2003-01)
    This paper describes a promising fabrication technique for rapid replication of high aspect ratio microstructured molds for UV embossing. The process involves casting silicone rubber on a microstructured master, replicating ...
  • Raheja, Amritpal Singh; Subramaniam, Velusamy (2002-01)
    Disruptions to job shop schedules are tedious and difficult to incorporate after the schedule has been generated and implemented on the shop floor. In order to deal with such disruptions, a real time reactive scheduling ...
  • Kim, H.-Y.; Cherng, J.-P.; Chun, Jung-Hoon (2002-01)
    This article reports the recent progress of re-search made in the Droplet-Based Manufacturing Laboratory at MIT. The study has been focused on obtaining a fundamental understanding of microdroplet deposition and applying ...
  • Yuan, M. L.; Ong, S. K.; Nee, Andrew Y. C. (2004-01)
    In AR systems, registration is one of the most difficult problems currently limiting their applications. In this paper, we proposed a simple registration method using projective reconstruction. This method consists of two ...
  • Kua, C. H.; Lam, Yee Cheong; Yang, C.; Youcef-Toumi, Kamal (2005-01)
    During the last decade, large and costly instruments are being replaced by system based on microfluidic devices. Microfluidic devices hold the promise of combining a small analytical laboratory onto a chip-sized substrate ...
  • Chen, Xin; Sim, Melvyn; Simchi-Levi, David; Sun, Peng (2005-01)
    Traditional inventory models focus on risk-neutral decision makers, i.e., characterizing replenishment strategies that maximize expected total profit, or equivalently, minimize expected total cost over a planning horizon. ...
  • Yuan, Miaolong; Xie, Ming; Yin, Xiaoming (2002-01)
    Feature matching in images plays an important role in computer vision such as for 3D reconstruction, motion analysis, object recognition, target tracking and dynamic scene analysis. In this paper, we present a robust ...
  • Sun, Z. Z.; Yoon, Soon Fatt; Yew, K. C.; Bo, B. X.; Yan, Du An; Tung, Chih-Hang (2005-01)
    We present the results of GaInNAs/GaAs quantum dot structures with GaAsN barrier layers grown by solid source molecular beam epitaxy. Extension of the emission wavelength of GaInNAs quantum dots by ~170nm was observed in ...
  • Mathirajan, M.; Appa Iyer, Sivakumar (2003-01)
    In this paper a review on scheduling of batch processors (SBP) in semiconductor manufacturing (SM) is presented. It classifies SBP in SM into 12 groups. The suggested classification scheme organizes the SBP in SM literature, ...
  • Tang, Y.; Loh, Han Tong; Fuh, J.-Y.-H.; Wong, Y.-S.; Lee, S.-H. (2003-01)
    An algorithm was developed to enable efficient segmentation of dimensionally-large objects into smaller components that can be fabricated within the given Rapid Prototyping (RP) machine workspace. The algorithm uses vertical ...
  • Yang, R.L.; Subramaniam, Velusamy; Gershwin, Stanley B. (2006-01)
    A new algorithm is developed for setting WIP level in production lines. It is a pull policy that determines when to authorize a job to be processed. Dynamic information in the system such as machine failures and repairs, ...
  • Caro, Felipe; Simchi-Levi, David (2005-01)
    This article studies the static pricing problem of a network service provider who has a fixed capacity and faces different types of customers (classes). Each type of customers can have its own capacity constraint but it ...
  • Teo, Chee Chong (2004-01)
    The Moment Recursion (MR) models are a class of models for tactical planning of job shops or other processing networks. The MR model can be used to determine or approximate the first two moments of production quantities ...
  • Loh, Han Tong; Koh, Wee Leong; Menon, Rakesh; Leong, Christopher K. (2002-01)
    In many manufacturing companies, large databases containing data on failures and repairs of products are maintained. This paper reports on a case where information from such a database is extracted. Such information extracted ...
  • Tor, Shu Beng; Mak, K.W.; Lee, Y.T. (2004-01)
    The design of a pop-up book or card has hitherto been labour intensive with tasks of trials and errors. The constructions of collapsible pop-up structures can be demanding and inefficient without adequate knowledge of their ...
  • Jootar, Jay; Eppinger, Steven D. (2002-01)
    The development process for complex system is typically iterative in nature. Among the critical decisions in managing such process involves deciding how to partition the system development into iterations. This paper ...
  • Threatte, Kermit; Graves, Stephen C. (2002-01)
    We report on a project with Polaroid Corporation in which we developed a supply chain model to provide decision support for planning production and transportation. Production occurs in Asia to serve world-wide demand. ...
  • Gupta, Shobhit; Gallien, Jérémie (2005-01)
    Increasingly used in online auctions, buyout prices allow bidders to instantly purchase the item listed. We distinguish two types: a temporary buyout option disappears if a bid above the reserve price is made; a permanent ...
