One-dimensional multi-period cutting stock problems in the concrete industry

This research looks at the production planning of hollow-core slabs integrated to the optimization problem of the use of molds. Considering the production process of these structures, two mathematical models are proposed for the arising problem, which consists of a one-dimensional multi-period cutting stock problem with innovative aspects regarding the multiple manufacturing modes that can … Read more

Mathematical model and solution approaches for integrated lot-sizing, scheduling and cutting stock problems

In this paper, we address a two-stage integrated lot-sizing, scheduling and cutting stock problem with sequence-dependent setup times and setup costs. In production stage one, a cutting machine is used to cut large objects into smaller pieces, in which cutting patterns are generated and used to cut the pieces, and should be sequenced in order … Read more
