Abstract: Materials have very important influence on the environmental impact of the product life
cycle from production to disposal and recycling. The environmental factors should be considered
when product materials are selected, in order to improve the environmental friendliness of products.
Due to the complexity of product material selection considering technical, economic and
environmental factors, it is transformed into a decision-making problem. An integrated
decision-making index system is presented, and a multi-objective decision-making framework
model is established according to the index system. An algorithm integrating grey relation analysis
(GRA) and analytic hierarchy process (AHP) is used to aid the decision making process. A material
selection case of the housing of an electronic device is introduced, which shows the feasibility and
effectiveness of the model and method presented.
Abstract: According to idea of lean production, in order to shorten production preparation time,
production preparation package is brought forward. The concept, flow and performance
management about production preparation package is introduced. Production efficiency is improved
and cost of production is reduced in the aeronautical manufacturing enterprises.
Abstract: The paper concentrates on the issue of coordination and combined optimization of supply
chains. All the member has its own interests, so there are conflicts between members motive and
overall system objective. In the paper CAS theory is used as standard paradigm and complexity of
the supply chain is analyzed. Case study includes some extreme situations of the supply chain in
different levels, namely optimization and coordination problem within operation layer, business
layer and enterprise layer. From the study, some rules are summarized to study the problem.
Abstract: Two-axle rotary shaping is one of advanced sheet metal forming process that combined
stamping ascendant used elastic medium with traditional rotary shaping principle. The prediction
model of two-axle rotary shaping is set up to predict the springback for two-axle rotary shaping. It
used the back propagation neural network because of the better nonlinear mapping ability. Some of
data from the experiment and FEM simulation is applied to train the network; the other data is used to
test the prediction result. The result showed that the value of prediction and experiment is in good
agreement, and just small error is existed. It demonstrated that the neural network model might
predict the springback of two-axle rotary shaping and reduce the number of simulation calculation
and experiment operation. It can offer a powerful guidance for rapid choice of process parameters in
Abstract: Aimed at the requirement of a project, a man-machine cooperation(MMC) manipulator
was designed based on its system structure and man-machine function analysis. Meanwhile, the
system functions were allocated between man and manipulator, and in order to realize information
integration in MMC material handling system, a application method of mechatronics was discussed.
Then an example is given to express one of the realization methods of information communication
between man and manipulator.
Abstract: While logistics services have become a significant source of competitive differentiation
between firms, significant challenges exist relative to developing logistics service offerings for the
business customers. As a service offering, logistics services are also subject to cultural influences that
exist in trade. In this article, we argue that logistics service quality (LSQ) components comprise
personnel contact quality, information quality, ordering procedures, order accuracy, order condition,
order discrepancy handling, order quality, convenience, agility and timeliness in context of China.
This paper presents a hypothesize model of LSQ as a process.
Abstract: Manufacture cell scheduling (MCS) is a NP-hard problem, and the traditional optimization
methods have their limitations when dealing with MCS. Immune algorithm that simulates the
biologic immunity system is an intelligent optimization method and has potential to solve MCS.
Multi-colony diploid immune algorithm (MDIA) is put forward to solve MCS. Firstly, the model of
MCS is set up. Then, a typical benchmark problem is simulated with MDIA and other algorithms.
Finally, simulation results show that MDIA is both effective and superior to other algorithms.
Abstract: Aviation manufacture cell scheduling is generally multi-constraint and multi-objective
flexible job-shop scheduling, and is more complicated than classical job-shop because of flexible
processing route, multi-restriction, multi-objective, dynamic disturb and complex model. The model
of aviation manufacture cell scheduling is set up, and accordingly adaptive ant colony algorithm is
brought forward. The adaptive mechanism and the genetic principle are introduced into the algorithm
to accelerate convergence and avoid stagnation. Finally, the aviation manufacture cell scheduling of
Xi’an Aero-Engine (Group) Ltd. is well solved by the proposed methods.
Abstract: In the process of global economy development and competition, how to strengthen the
cooperation of enterprises in the supply chain environment plays a very important role to the success
of enterprises. As well known, the IT technology is one of the quite essential factors to provide
quicker and more accurate information for the enterprises, and therefore enhance the enterprises’
operation efficiency. In order to adapt to the supply chain (SC) environment and support for other
enterprises’ common development in SC, we have to develop more powerful and unified IT
What is elaborated in this paper is the framework of the information cooperation system which is
SC oriented. It does not deny or overthrow the legacy applications of enterprises, but to put forward
a framework based on the old applications in SC. It also unifies the Web Service and references the
principles of VPN. We call it the framework of Virtual Private Supply Chain Management (VPSCM).
The principle, the model and the use of VPSCM as well as some other related issues are going to be
explained in this paper.
Abstract: Mass customization (MC) is an emergent concept in industry intended to provide
customized products through flexible processes in high volumes and at reasonably low costs. The
method of configuration is one of important ways to realize quickly product customization. But, in
business, particularly through the Internet, a customer normally develops in his mind some sort of
ambiguity, when given the choice of similar alternative products to choose. This paper proposes an
approach to product configuration according to uncertain and fuzzy requirements the customer
submits to the product supplier. Finally, the digital camera is taken as an example to further verify the
validity and the feasibility of the method.
