News: Inventory control for a MARKOVIAN remanufacturing system with stochastic decomposition process
In this paper, we consider a remanufacturing system with reproduction and disposal.
Tuesday, 26th February 2008
In the system, a decomposition process where recovered products are decomposed and classified into wastes to be disposed and materials and parts to be used in the processes for producing parts and products, is considered. For the remanufacturing system, two control policies are proposed.The performance of the proposed policies is analyzed by Markov analysis.
