Operations Research Methods for Scheduling and Resource Allocation Problems
Operations research methods can be used to find solutions to decision problems of a quantitative nature. Many problems within scheduling and resource allocation, as for example planning of transports, timetabling and staff scheduling, can be formulated as discrete optimisation problems and solved by methods designed for such problems.
The scope of this research project is to develop mathematical models and solutions algorithms for discrete optimisation problems arising from scheduling and resource allocation applications. The two main projects are currently in design, analysis and scheduling of electronic systems in aircraft, in collaboration with Saab, and in column generation methods.
