Solving school bus routing problems through integer programming
(Palgrave Macmillan Ltd., 2007)
In this paper, an exact solution approach is described for solving a real-life school bus routing problem (SBRP) for transporting the students of an elementary school throughout central Ankara, Turkey. The problem is ...
Satisfying due-dates in a job shop with sequence-dependent family set-ups
(Taylor & Francis, 2003)
This paper addresses job shop scheduling with sequence dependent family set-ups. Based on a simple, single-machine dynamic scheduling problem, state dependent scheduling rules for the single machine problem are developed ...
Designing emergency response networks for hazardous materials transportation
Undesirable consequences of dangerous goods incidents can be mitigated by quick arrival of specialized response teams at the accident site. We present a novel methodology to determine the optimal design of a specialized ...
Simulation metamodelling with neural networks: an experimental investigation
Artificial neural networks are often proposed as an alternative approach for formalizing various quantitative and qualitative aspects of complex systems. This paper examines the robustness of using neural networks as a ...
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 ...
