This paper presents a new approach to solve the short-term unit commitment problem using genetic algorithm-based simulated annealing method for utility system. The objective of this paper is to find the generation scheduling such that the total operating cost can be minimised when subjected to a...

Collaborative planning deals with aligning the production plans of legally separated companies. This thesis provides an approach for aligning detailed schedules in a scenario where several suppliers are delivering intermediate goods to one manufacturer. For producing the goods in a...
Cooperation in the ocean liner shipping industry has always been important to improve liner shipping networks (LSN's). As tight cooperations like alliances are challenged by antitrust laws, looser forms of cooperation among liner carriers might become a reasonable way to increase efficiency of...
