A master production schedule (MPS) need find a good, perhaps optimal, plan for maximize service levels while minimizing inventory and resource usage. However, these are conflicting objectives and a tradeoff to reach acceptable values must be made. Therefore, several techniques have been proposed to perform optimization on production planning problems based on, for instance, linear and non-linear programming, dynamic-lot sizing and meta-heuristics. In particular, several meta- heuristics have...

Digital Watermarking is the efficient way introduced to authenticate ownership of digital information. In a watermarking system, a logo is inserted to identify the ownership to digital information. The proposed system uses the SWT with SVD to embed the watermark image. To enhance robustness of the proposed system PSO is adapted for the selection of optimal coefficients. PSNR and CC are the two performance parameters considered to evaluate the system.

The conjugate gradient method has played a special role in solving large- scale unconstrained Optimization problems. In this paper, we propose a new family of CG coefficients that possess sufficient descent conditions and global convergence properties this CG method is similar to (Wei et al) [10]. Global convergence result is established under Strong Wolf-Powell line search. Numerical results to find the optimum solution of some test functions show the new proposed formula has the best result...
