    • A Green Strategy for Federated and Heterogeneous Clouds with Communicating Workloads 

      Mateo Fornés, Jordi; Vilaplana Mayoral, Jordi; Solsona Tehàs, Francesc; Pla Aragonés, Lluís Miquel; Lérida Monsó, Josep Lluís (Hindawi Publishing Corporation, 2014-07)
      Providers of cloud environments must tackle the challenge of configuring their system to provide maximal performance while minimizing the cost of resources used. However, at the same time, they must guarantee an SLA ...
    • A two-stage stochastic programming model for scheduling replacements in sow farms 

      Rodríguez Sánchez, Sara Verónica; Albornoz Sanhueza, Victor Manuel; Pla Aragonés, Lluís Miquel (Springer Verlag, 2009)
      This paper presents a formulation and resolution of a two-stage stochastic linear programming model with recourse for sow farms producing piglets. The proposed model considers a medium-term planning horizon and specifically ...
    • Bi-Objective Optimization Model Based on Profit and CO2 Emissions for Pig Deliveries to the Abattoir 

      Nadal, Esteve; Pagès Bernaus, Adela; Pla Aragonés, Lluís Miquel (MDPI, 2018)
      This paper presents a bi-objective model for optimizing pig deliveries to the abattoir accounting for total revenue and CO2 emissions. Fattening farms house the most important stage in pig production, and operations on ...
    • Contribuciones al perfeccionamiento del sistema de transporte terrestre en Cuba 

      López Milán, Esteban; Pla Aragonés, Lluís Miquel; Rigol Cardona, Buenaventura; Reyes Gómez, Erik; Miquel Fernández, Silvia (Academia de Ciencias de Cuba, 2020)
      Introducción. En el sistema de transporte de Cuba se presentan problemas que demandan respuestas adecuadas. Esta investigación en sus inicios estuvo dirigida al transporte de la caña en los centrales azucareros de la ...
    • Economic assessment of pig meat processing and cutting production by simulation 

      Pla Aragonés, Lluís Miquel; Pagès Bernaus, Adela; Nadal Roig, Esteve; Mateo Fornés, Jordi; Tarrafeta, Pedro; Mendioroz, Daniel; Pérez Cànovas, Lorea; López Nogales, Sandy (Walter de Gruyter, 2019-04)
      This paper presents the development and adoption of a discrete event simulation model of a pig meat-packing plant located in Navarre (Spain). The simulation model was developed to represent all the tasks and pig meat cuts ...
    • Environmental assessment of a pork-production system in North-East of Spain focusing on life-cycle swine nutrition 

      Lamnatou, Chrysovalantou; Ezcurra Ciaurriz, F. Xavier; Chemisana Villegas, Daniel; Pla Aragonés, Lluís Miquel (Elsevier, 2016-07-09)
      Given the importance of pig-meat production in Spain, the present work (based on cumulative energy demand, global warming potential, ReCiPe method and different functional units) presents a life cycle assessment of an ...
    • Evaluación de la sustentabilidad del sistema agrícola de la Comunidad de Huapra (Perú) 

      Espinola, Jesús E.; Pla Aragonés, Lluís Miquel; Montañez, Eddy J.; Leyva, Jorge W.; Cáceres, Vladimir A. (Universidad de la Habana, 2017)
      This paper assesses the agricultural sustainability of the peasant community of Huapra, located in the Andes of Peru; this is a type of high land farming communities. The analysis has been made by applying the methodology ...
    • Evaluation of Replacement Policies in Sow Farms Using ArenaTM Simulation Software 

      Montufar Benítez, Marco Antonio; Pla Aragonés, Lluís Miquel; Serrato Garcia, Marco A.; Montaño Arango, Oscar; Corona Armenta, José Ramón (Scientific Research Publishing Inc., 2014)
      This paper presents an application of the simulation of discrete events (SED) using ARENATM in the management of large-scale breeding farms. The main objective of the simulation model is to find a policy of replacement, ...
    • Modeling tactical planning decisions through a linear optimization model in sow farms 

      Rodríguez Sánchez, Sara Verónica; Pla Aragonés, Lluís Miquel; Albornoz Sanhueza, Victor Manuel (Elsevier, 2012)
      This paper deals with tactical planning decisions for breeding farms producing piglets through a linear optimization model. A medium-term planning horizon based on weekly periods is considered. The proposed model maximizes ...
    • Review of mathematical models for sow herd management 

      Pla Aragonés, Lluís Miquel (Elsevier, 2007)
      This paper is a survey of the different sow models described in literature, which made use of different mathematical methodologies, and were intended for sow herd management. Models were discussed under a wide classification, ...
    • Using PRRSV-resilient sows improve performance in endemic infected farms with recurrent outbreaks 

      Abella Falcó, Glòria; Pagès Bernaus, Adela; Estany Illa, Joan; Pena i Subirà, Ramona Natacha; Fraile Sauce, Lorenzo José; Pla Aragonés, Lluís Miquel (MDPI, 2021)
      The selection of porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome (PRRS) resilient sows has been proposed as a strategy to control this disease. A discrete event-based simulation model was developed to mimic the outcome of ...
