11. Mixed Pallet Stacking: An Overview and Summary of the 2010 PerMIS Special Session
Published: 2/4/2011
Authors: Stephen B. Balakirsky, Henrik I. Christensen, Thomas Rollin Kramer, Pushkar Kolhe, Frederick M Proctor
Abstract: Stacking boxes of various sizes and contents on pallets (i.e. making mixed pallets) is a primary method of preparing goods for shipment from a warehouse to a store or other distant site. A special session of the 2010 PERMIS workshop was held to exami ...

12. Metrics for Mixed Pallet Stacking
Published: 1/31/2011
Authors: Stephen B. Balakirsky, Thomas Rollin Kramer, Frederick M Proctor
Abstract: Stacking boxes of various sizes and contents on pallets (i.e. making mixed pallets) is a primary method of preparing goods for shipment from a warehouse to a store or other distant site. Many billions of dollars are spent each year in preparing, ship ...

13. Using Simulation To Assess The Effectiveness of Pallet Stacking Methods
Published: 11/19/2010
Authors: Stephen B. Balakirsky, Frederick M Proctor, Thomas Rollin Kramer, Pushkar Kolhe, Henrik I. Christensen
Abstract: Stacking objects onto pallets is the most widely used method of bulk shipping, accounting for over 60% of the volume of goods shipped worldwide. Due in part to the wide variation in size, shape and weight of objects to be palletized, successful stack ...

15. A Machining and Measurement Process Planning Activity Model for Manufacturing System Interoperability Analysis
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7734
Published: 10/29/2010
Authors: Fiona Zhao, Frederick M Proctor, John A Horst
Abstract: Manufacturing systems consist of many activities. Each of these activities may include one or more software and hardware. In order to make these software and hardware systems interoperable, the data exchange and share among them must be seamless. How ...

18. Feature-based Process Planning Based on STEP
Published: 12/31/2009
Authors: Thomas Rollin Kramer, Frederick M Proctor
Abstract: This chapter begins by describing characteristics a process planning language should have. Then it discusses the extent to which four process planning languages have these characteristics. The first two of these are STEP standard process planning lan ...
