A major transition became necessary for the maritime industry to meet the IMO’s targets for mitigating the carbon footprint of the sector by at least 50% by 2050. One of the promising methods to lower the emissions is the ship's hybridization. An enormous increase in pilot and demonstration projects for that purpose is being observed. This...

Due to more stringent greenhouse gas (GHG) emission regulations in the maritime industry, solutions are being sought to decrease the GHG emissions of crew transfer vessels used in offshore wind farms. Multiple alternative fuels and power generating systems can be used to decrease these emissions. In this research, a comparative study is...

Objective: This study investigates the implementation of the waterborne platooning transport concept in two of the largest European inland navigation corridors, the Rhine and the Danube region. Each region has different geo-economic and environmental features. These features are compared, and their effects on implementing a waterborne...

This work addresses the cockpit crew training scheduling problem. The objective is to produce a robust cockpit crew training schedule, including the assignment of trainees, instructors and simulators. To attain this objective, we propose a scheduling framework composed of four modules: a Training Scheduling & Assignment Model (TS&AM),...

This paper introduces a new two-stage stochastic optimisation approach for the strategic airline crew planning problem with uncertain demand. The developed model provides the airline with a cockpit crew composition plan per crew position before the flight schedule and crew demand are known. This is done by estimating future crew demand and by...

Crew transportation executed by vessels started as a result of the development of offshore platforms close to land. Due to the growing oil demand in combination with limited space for new installations in shallow water areas, these platforms have expanded to deepwater locations. To transport crew over these longer distances, helicopters are used...

To achieve a modal shift towards waterborne transport and to deal with the shortage of crewmembers, a platooning concept called the “Vessel Train” is explored for the inland navigation sector. A Vessel Train consists of a lead and various follower vessels. The lead vessel is fully manned and takes over the navigational and situational...

Airline disruption management is an active field of research. In recent years, there has been an increase in publications, in particular, in of works integrating two or more resources (i.e., aircraft, crew, passengers) in the recovery analysis. Given that more than 50% of the papers have been published after the last literature review paper ...

Objective: Medical Crew Resource Management (CRM) training courses are designed to increase patient safety by reducing the effects of human errors. These training courses are most popular in surgery and a wide range of medical CRM training courses for surgical teams is now available. However, the effects of these CRM training courses on...

Autonomous and unmanned shipping are currently hot topics in the maritime industry. However, there are many different views on how the ultimate goal of an unmanned, autonomous ship will be reached. On any given ship, a large range of tasks is performed every day, each of which need to be replaced in such a way that no human presence is...

The aim of this project was to design a solution for the apron services of KLM that will relieve the ground crew from their physical burden and makes the handling of containers safer. Both with the goal to reduce the chance of getting injured while handling containers. Next to the reduction of injuries, the goal is to improve the efficiency of...

The potential to implement the concept of waterborne platooning in the European short sea transportation system is currently being explored. In the concept, a platoon is referred to as a “Vessel Train” (VT). A VT is composed of a fully manned lead vessel and a number of follower vessels. The lead vessel takes over the navigational and...

Recently, autonomous ships have gotten a lot more attention both in the media and in research. However, very little research has focussed on the effects of automation on the size of the crew. This paper analyses the effects of added automation on the required size and composition of the crew on a 750 TEU short sea container vessel. A Crew...

For airlines, crew costs make up the second largest expense, behind fuel costs. Because these costs are very high, there is a large potential gain in improving the crew efficiency within the bounds set by the law and collective labor agreements. This thesis investigates the dated crew pairing problem, and how the crew pairing problem can be...

KLM, a Dutch airline, is renowned for their high levels of services and customer experiences. With their purpose ‘moving your world by creating memorable experiences’, maintaining those high levels of services is important. Cabin crew is for a big part responsible for those high levels of services. Making cabin crew feel the best of them and...

This paper presents the development of a simulation model for airline cockpit crew rostering. The developed simulation model supports airlines in performing comparative analyses of different crew rostering scenarios. The model was developed in collaboration with a major European airline, leveraging actual historical pairing, crew and roster data...

Airline schedules are constantly being updated to deal with disruptions originating from crew absence, upstream delays, mechanical failures and other sources. A robust schedule is capable of dealing with- or absorbing negative effects of such unexpected events. Schedule robustness, accounted for proactively in the scheduling g phase, is...

Pilots are an important asset in the operations of airlines, as with insufficient pilots, an airline cannot operate the planned schedule. The long-term crew planning problem aims to optimally plan the supply and demand for pilots as well as methods and strategies for closing the gap between these. The demand is determined by the number of pilots...

In operational airline crew scheduling, one of the major tasks is to allocate flight activities to individual crew members. This task is referred to as the crew rostering problem; an optimization problem that aims to assign flights to crew members in a cost-effective way, while also considering preferences of crewmembers. Flights are combined...
