A population-based approach to sequential ordering problems
(Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2007-03)
This project was initiated to develop a new and novel approach to address complex sequencing problems, in particular, an alternative method was developed to find solutions to the sequential ordering problem. The sequential ...
Development of Drum-Buffer-Rope scheduling software to support a “what if” approach to scheduling job shops
(Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2006-03)
The Theory of Constraints is a management philosophy based on the underlying assumption that only a few constraining factors limit the throughput of the entire system. Drum-Buffer-Rope is the production logistical solution ...
Protective capacity and time buffer design in theory of constraints controlled discrete flow production systems
(Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2003-04)
ENGLISH ABSTRACT: To maximise the throughput of a production system the capacity constrained resource needs to be protected from variation and uncertainty. In the Theory of Constraints philosophy such protection is provided ...
Scheduling program based on the theory of constraints
(Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2003-03)
ENGLISH ABSTRACT: The goal of this thesis is to provide a stepping-stone for the design and development of a software package that implements the Goal System Algorithm, based on the Theory of Constraints (TOC). This ...
