‘BALANCING AND SEQUENCING’ VERSUS ‘ONLY BALANCING’ IN MIXED MODEL ULINE ASSEMBLY SYSTEMS: AN ECONOMIC ANALYSIS
2
2
With the growth in customers’ demand diversification, mixedmodel Ulines (MMUL) have acquired increasing importance in the area of assembly systems. There are generally two different approaches in the literature for balancing such systems. Some researchers believe that since the types of models can be very diverse, a balancing approach without simultaneously sequencing of models will not yield an optimum configuration. On the other hand, another group of researchers point to the high cost of balancing systems and prefer to do it only one time regardless of the models’ sequences. In this paper, we aim to compare these two approaches by introducing an economic indicator. To do so, two models as representatives of the two different viewpoints are taken from the literature. To check the validity of this methodology, it is implemented by Lingo 11.0, for small scale, and GA, for a large scale. The obtained results indicate that, from the proposed economic indicator point of view, mixedmodel Ulines balancing and sequencing (MMUL/BS) is preferred to its counterpart, mixedmodel Ulines balancing (MMULB). This paper offers economic guidelines for managers to choose between only balancing and implementing it by sequencing at the same time.

INVENTORY MODEL FOR DETERIORATING ITEMS WITH REVENUE SHARING ON PRESERVATION TECHNOLOGY INVESTMENT UNDER PRICE SENSITIVE STOCK DEPENDENT DEMAND
2
2
The objective of this research is to tackle the emerging problem of jointly determining theoptimal retail price, the replenishment cycle, and the cost of preservation technology investment from an integrated perspective among the supplier and the manufacturer. This paper deals an integrated singlemanufacturer singleretailer supply chain model for deteriorating items under revenue sharing on preservation technology investment. The proposed model is developed under the contract that the manufacturer offers the retailer for a percentage of revenue sharing on preservation technology investment. The market demand is assumed to be dependent on both the onhand stock and price, and the manufacturer & the retailer are in an agreement of lotforlot policy. Numerical & graphical analysis is given to illustrate the model.

This paper proves the existence and uniqueness of quadratic mean almost periodic mild solutions for a class of stochastic dierential equations in a real separable Hilbert space. Themain technique is based upon an appropriate composition theorem combined with the Banachcontraction mapping principle and an analytic semigroup of linear operators.

PENALTY METHOD FOR UNILATERAL CONTACT PROBLEM WITH COULOMB’S FRICTION FOR LOCKING MATERIAL
2
2
In this work, we study a unilateral contact problem with non local friction of Coulombbetween a locking material and a rigid foundation. In the first step , we present the mathematicalmodel for a static process, we establish the variational formulation in the form of a variationalinequality and we prove the existence and uniqueness of the solution. In the second step, usingthe penalty method we introduce the penalized problem numerical in the form of variationalequality where we replace the law behavior and the law contact of Sigorini . The we show theconvergence of the continuous penalty solution as the penalty parameter n tends towards infinity.Then, the analysis of the finite element discretized penalty method is carried out.

AN APPLICATION OF FUZZY NUMBERS TO THE ASSESSMENT OF MATHEMATICAL MODELLING SKILLS
2
2
In this paper we use the Triangular and Trapezoidal Fuzzy Numbers as tools for assessing student Mathematical Modelling (MM) skills. Fuzzy Numbers play a fundamental role in fuzzy mathematics analogous to the role played by the ordinary numbers in classical mathematics, On the other hand, MM appears today as a dynamic tool for teaching and learning mathematics, because it connects mathematics with our everyday life giving the possibility to students to understand its usefulness in practice thus increasing their interest about mathematics. Therefore the subject of the present paper appears to be of great interest. Our results are illustrated by three examkples, through which the effectiveness of our new fuzzy assessment approach is validated compared to already established by the present authors in earlier works assessment methods of the classical (calculation of the means, GPA index) and the fuzzy logic (Trapezoidal Model).
