Designing a road network for hazardous materials shipments
We consider the problem of designating hazardous materials routes in and through a major population center. Initially, we restrict our attention to a minimally connected network (a tree) where we can predict accurately the ...
A comparative study of computational procedures for the resource constrained project scheduling problem
Performance of two new integer programming based heuristics together with some special purpose algorithms for project scheduling are tested from a computational point of view. The objective of the study is to compare the ...
Exact and heuristic approaches based on noninterfering transmissions for joint gateway selection, time slot allocation, routing and power control for wireless mesh networks
Wireless mesh networks (WMNs) provide cost-effective alternatives for extending wireless communication over larger geographical areas. In this paper, given a WMN with its nodes and possible wireless links, we consider the ...
An integrated approach for airline scheduling, aircraft fleeting and routing with cruise speed control
To place an emphasis on profound relations among airline schedule planning problems and to mitigate the effect of unexpected delays, we integrate schedule design, fleet assignment and aircraft routing problems within a ...
A beam search algorithm to optimize robustness under random machine breakdowns and processing time variability
(Institute of Industrial Engineers, 2007)
The vast majority of the machine scheduling research assumes complete information about the scheduling problem and a static environment in which scheduling systems operate. In practice, however, scheduling systems are ...
