    • Design for process flexibility : efficiency of the long chain and sparse structure 

      Chou, Mabel C.; Chua, Geoffrey A.; Teo, Chung-Piaw; Zheng, Huan (2010)
      The concept of chaining, or in more general terms, sparse process structure, has been extremely influential in the process flexibility area, with many large automakers already making this the cornerstone of their business ...
    • On range and response : dimensions of process flexibility 

      Chou, Mabel C.; Chua, Geoffrey Ang; Teo, Chung-Piaw (2010)
      There are two dimensions to process flexibility: range versus response. Range is the extent to which a system can adapt, while response is the rate at which the system can adapt. Although both dimensions are important, the ...
    • Process flexibility revisited : the graph expander and its applications 

      Chou, Mabel C.; Chua, Geoffrey A.; Teo, Chung-Piaw; Zheng, Huan (2011)
      We examine how to design a flexible process structure for a production system to match supply with demand more effectively. We argue that good flexible process structures are essentially highly connected graphs, and we use ...
