  • A BRILS metaheuristic for non-smooth flow-shop problems with failure-risk costs 

    Ferrer Biosca, Alberto; Guimarans, Daniel; Ramalhino Lourenço, Helena; Juan Pérez, Ángel Alejandro (2016-02-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    This paper analyzes a realistic variant of the Permutation Flow-Shop Problem (PFSP) by considering a non-smooth objective function that takes into account not only the traditional makespan cost but also failure-risk costs ...
  • Mathematical programming approaches for classes of random network problems 

    Castro Pérez, Jordi; Nasini, Stefano (Elsevier, 2015-09-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    Random simulations from complicated combinatorial sets are often needed in many classes of stochastic problems. This is particularly true in the analysis of complex networks, where researchers are usually interested in ...

  • Parking slot assignment for urban distribution: models and formulations 

    Roca Riu, Mireia; Fernández Aréizaga, Elena; Estrada Romeu, Miguel Ángel (2015-05-07)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    A key element to enhance urban distribution is the adequate management of parking space, particularly for loading and unloading operations. An in-advance booking system able to be adjusted to users needs can be a very ...
  • The recoverable robust facility location problem 

    Alvarez Miranda, Eduardo; Fernández Aréizaga, Elena; Ljubic, Ivana (2015-09-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    This work deals with a facility location problem in which location and allocation (transportation) policy is defined in two stages such that a first-stage solution should be robust against the possible realizations (scenarios) ...
  • When centers can fail: a close second opportunity 

    Albareda Sambola, Maria; Hinojosa, Yolanda; Marín, Alfredo; Puerto Albandoz, Justo (2015-10-01)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    This paper presents the p-next center problem, which aims to locate p out of n centers so as to minimize the maximum cost of allocating customers to backup centers. In this problem it is assumed that centers can fail and ...
  • The reliable p-median problem with at-facility service 

    Albareda Sambola, Maria; Hinojosa, Yolanda; Puerto Albandoz, Justo (Elsevier, 2015-09-16)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    This paper deals with a discrete facility location model where service is provided at the facility sites. It is assumed that facilities can fail and customers do not have information on failures before reaching them. As a ...
  • Fix-and-relax approaches for controlled tabular adjustment 

    Baena, Daniel; Castro Pérez, Jordi; González Alastrué, José Antonio (2015-06-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    Controlled tabular adjustment (CIA) is a relatively new protection technique for tabular data protection. CTA formulates a mixed integer linear programming problem, which is challenging for tables of moderate size. Even ...
  • Methodology for the economic optimisation of energy storage systems for frequency support in wind power plants 

    Johnstone, Lewis; Díaz González, Francisco; Gomis Bellmunt, Oriol; Corchero García, Cristina; Cruz Zambrano, Miguel (2015-01-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    This paper proposes a methodology for the economic optimisation of the sizing of Energy Storage Systems (ESSs) whilst enhancing the participation of Wind Power Plants (WPP) in network primary frequency control support. The ...
