Due to strong demand for air travel before the COVID-19 pandemic, major airports were constrained in capacity and this issue was expected to worsen in the coming decades. Novel aircraft (concepts) could help to alleviate these capacity constraints. However, the market competitiveness and impact of novel aircraft is often challenging to assess,...

In order to achieve the goal of sustainability, industries will have to make a transition to renewable energy and a more circular production. This requires substantial investments as well as constructive cooperation between the various companies in industrial clusters. The problem addressed in this thesis is to find ways of determining optimal...

The maritime inventory routing problem (MIRP) is a tactical and operational planning problem, that takes an integrated view on ship scheduling and inventory management for bulk products. Given production and consumption levels during a predetermined planning horizon, the problem aims at finding delivery schedules with minimal travel costs, such...

In the multi-agent pathfinding (MAPF) problem, agents have to traverse a graph to a goal location without running into each other. Currently, the Branch-and-Cut-and-Price-MAPF (BCP-MAPF) algorithm is the state-of-the-art algorithm for solving MAPF problems, which uses Branch-Price-and-Cut (BPC) to solve a linear minimization problem. The multi...

Machine learning has been a computer sciences buzzword for years. The technology has a lot of potential and a huge number of applications that spoke to people with and without knowledge of computer sciences. Image, text and speech recognition, social profiling, computergames, everything seemed possible. Machine learning is not as much in the...

Currently, the inland shipping industry is not sufficiently incentivised to invest in sustainable technologies in order to reduce their emissions. The industry itself wants to be more sustainable, but there is insufficient financial room to invest in alternative technologies. Besides, public authorities try to achieve a reduction using command...

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...

In 2018 the Dutch government, businesses and other stakeholders started negotiating an agreement to combat climate change (het Klimaatakkoord). Energy consumption is changing and more Renewable Energy Sources (RES) are implemented. While these changes are ongoing, the Distribution System Operators (DSOs) must ensure no congestion occurs in the...

This thesis focuses on optimising the Emergency Medical Services (EMS) in the Netherlands. In the current situation, the Netherlands is divided into 24 independent regions in which ambulances operate. These regions can be merged in order to reduce response time and increase efficiency. Different models are presented in which these regions are...

In 20 years, from 1996 to 2016, global cumulative container port throughput had an average annual growth rate of 6.3%. Furthermore, the average global transshipment incidence increased from 11% in 1980 to a stable 27% in 2017. This change in transshipment market dynamics has led to opportunities for potential port investments or disinvestments....

The air cargo industry is a challenging environment due to the high competition between the stakeholders involved. This demands, as example, high efficiency from cargo airlines. Efficiency can be ensured by designing loading strategies that fully exploit the available cargo volume. Unknowns in the booking dimensions and flight information make...

Aircraft base maintenance consists of hundreds of tasks including preventive, corrective and modification tasks which have to be scheduled to a few check moments per year. The allocation of tasks to checks represents a complex scheduling problem due to the constraints involved. A mixed integer linear programming model was developed to optimize...

Privately owned cars are an unsustainable mode of transportation, especially in cities. New Mobility on Demand (MoD) services should offer a convenient and sustainable alternative to privately owned cars. Notable in this field is the recent uprise of ride-sharing services such as offered by companies like Uber and Grab. Such services, especially...

In open-pit mining on a bench level, the dig-limit optimization problem is deciding whether to classify a Selective Mining Unit(SMU) as waste or whether to classify it as ore. SMU’s with high ore grades are profitable for the mining operation, but due to equipment size a whole frame of SMU’s has to be classified as either ore or waste. In this...

In a busy railway network such as the Netherlands, more and more maintenance activities are needed to be performed. These planned activities often lead to an infeasible timetable since infrastructure is temporary unavailable for operations. A macroscopic network model can roughly adjust the timetable for a complete network, while a microscopic...

Energy flexibility is the ability to change power production or consumption over time. It is required for a power system to function properly, to balance supply and demand. Currently, the largest providers of energy flexibility in the Netherlands can be found on the supply side and consist mainly out of fossil fueled power plants. As these are...

A high percentage of hospital admissions is due to surgical interventions. The operating theatre, which holds the operating rooms (ORs), is therefore one of the key resources in hospitals. Managing the operating theatre and finding an optimal OR schedule is complex due to the many factors that influence it. Scheduling a surgery in an OR...

In oil supply chains, crude oil needs to be transported from oil fields to refineries, and refined products need to be transported from refineries to regional depots. On land, pipelines are the preferred mode for long-distance oil transportation, because they are safe, efficient, silent, and cheap compared to other modes of transport. Pipelines...

In the Netherlands, flood protection has always been a key issue to protect settlements against storm surges and floods. Around 60 % of the country is potentially affected by flood from the rivers and the sea. Most of the flood-susceptible areas are low-lying polders. Whereas flood protection has traditionally been focused on structural measures...
