hoist 
This contribution describes a promising approach to solving a simple version of this problem, namely cyclic hoist scheduling, based on Evolutionary Algorithms (EAs), which is an?optimization method inspired by biological evolution models.


Application of Nonlinear Optimisation Methods to Input Shaping of the Hoist Drive of an OffShore Crane


An application of nonlinear optimisation methods to the solution of finding the optimal hoist drive moment and the optimal velocity of the hoist drum is presented.


Such a choice enables the load to be lifted to a desired height when the boundary conditions are fulfilled and deformations of the hoist rope system are minimised.


Finally, we study the robotic cell scheduling problem, the automated guided vehicles scheduling problem, and the hoist scheduling problem.


To demonstrate generality, we also consider application of our procedure to a more complicated, multiproduct hoist scheduling problem.


The advantages of this integration are illustrated by efficientlysolving difficult optimisation problems like the Hoist Scheduling Problem [23]and the Progressive Party Problem [27].


An Improved Hybrid Model for the Generic Hoist Scheduling Problem


The generic hoist scheduling problem is NPhard and arises from automated manufacturing lines.


The smart house concept includes an intelligent bed, intelligent wheelchair, and robotic hoist for effortless transfer of the user between bed and wheelchair.


Methods to improve the maintenance of oil rig hoist systems


A branch and bound algorithm for hoist scheduling of a circuit board production line


The article studies the scheduling problem of a material handling hoist in a circuit board production line.


Scheduling the movements of these hoists is commonly called a hoist scheduling problem (HSP) in the literature.


Basic equations of the motion of a rope pulley of variable length in a hoist with a friction pulley


The two major yeasts isolated from the southern pine beetle,Dendroctonus frontalis Zimmerman, areHansenula holstii Wickerham andPichia pinus (Hoist) Phaff; a third yeast,P.


A method for calculating the optimum operational characteristics of a mine skip hoist


The capital cost of such an installation is 23 times less than that of a conveyor, or skip hoist.


This paper presents the method of assessing rope wheel bearing wear, developed for the special case of a shaft hoist in the Bogdanka coal mine.


We also impose no restrictions on the times of robot arrival at and departure from machines as it is the case in the related, but different, hoist scheduling problem.
