Associated research grant:06/01665-2 - Lot sizing and integrated problems, AP.JP
Associated scholarship(s):13/00965-6 - Dantzig-Wolfe decomposition and Lagrangian relaxation: hybrid methods, BE.EP.DR


In this research project we intend to study solution methods applied to the lot-sizing problem with parallel machines. The solution methods to be studied deal with the Lagrange relaxation and Dantzig-Wolfe decomposition, as well as, ways to use these methods together in a hybrid method and develop improved algorithms combining the strengths of both methods. Further, we intend to do some initial studies on the application of these methods on other extensions of the classical lot-sizing problem.
