This research presents an Integrated Production and Distribution Scheduling (IPDS) optimization problem in which the total transportation costs for an online grocer have to be minimized. The production refers to the preparation of orders at the production facility and the distribution is related to the transportation from the production...

This thesis proposes a model for charge scheduling of electric vehicles in last-mile distribution to investigate the impact of charge schedule optimisation on charging cost. A mixed integer problem formulation is proposed that considers labour, battery degradation and time-variable energy cost. The benefit of implementing charge schedule...

Defects that occur on train sets have to be repaired in a repair location and this has consequences on the transportation network. This paper proposes a decision support model that is developed for optimising the decisions of when and where to repair that defect train set. In practice, there is no clear overview of the effects of such decisions...

Hospitals are under an increased financial pressure, due to a significant growth in demand for healthcare, that is caused by an aging population. The operating rooms account for the largest costs of a hospital, and thus require a cost-efficient management. However, scheduling the operating rooms is a complex task that involves the estimation of...

Risk management is undoubtedly a precious component of the overall project management field. It assists in identifying, assessing and mitigating the uncertainties that are present in a project. These uncertainties affect important measures of a project, of which cost and schedule are the most prominent, and consequently put project success under...

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...

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...

This thesis investigates the potential of a large pumping station in IJmuiden, the Nether-lands, for participating in Demand Response. Due to climate change, renewable energy is onthe rise. The intermittency of energy, together with its unpredictable supply, are a big hurdlefor the energy transition. Two methods are promising solutions to this...

Roparun is a Foundation that organizes a yearly relay race from Paris, Hamburg and Almelo to Rotterdam in order to raise money for a variety of causes related to palliative care. They requested for an application that could create the start schedule of the race. In this thesis, the problem is analyzed and a greedy based solution is presented....

Mechatronic embedded control systems are becoming increasingly sophisticated and computationally demanding. These systems typically consists of multiple controllers, which coordinate the actuators and apply feedback based on data collected by sensors. Often the underlying control strategy is entirely described in a software application, which...

With cockpit crew costs being the second largest costs of an airline, making optimal use of the available crew is very important. The productivity of the crew is limited by the labor agreement and law regulations, which prevent the crew members from working irregularly or excessively. In this thesis we present several methods to solve the crew...

Order acceptance and scheduling problems (OAS) is a category of problems where the decision of which jobs to schedule and how to schedule them is intertwined. Decision diagrams have in recent years become a popular method of finding bounds for scheduling problems. However, their use in problems where orders can also be rejected has not yet been...

Railway maintenance is currently planned according to a fixed schedule, mostly of one year. This is usually not optimal when considering the cost of maintenance, of possessions and of failure. However, an approach that minimizes the sum of these costs was not yet available. This paper presents a statistical analysis method and an optimization...

The Train Maintenance Scheduling Problem (TMSP) is a real-world problem that aims at complete maintenance tasks of trains by scheduling their activities on a service site. Common methods of constructing optimal solutions to this problem are difficult as the problem consists of several highly-related sub-problems. Currently, NS is using a lo- cal...

The need for advanced ship propulsion control systems is constantly increasing as the demand for high vessel performance is growing at the same time. Speed trials are considered as an operation during which the vessel has to achieve the highest performance by attaining the agreed maximum ship speed. However, sometimes vessels have to sail in...

Manufacturing processes often run on a schedule, because each production step takes a certain amount of time, after which a component is transported to the next machine. Mobile robots can be used to automate transportation of components between production steps. To do so, a task scheduler assigns transportation tasks to robots and a path planner...

MapReduce ecosystems are (still) widely popular for big data processing in data centers. To address the diverse non-functional requirements arising from many and increasingly more sophisticated users, the community has developed many scheduling policies for MapReduce workloads. Although some individual policies can dynamically optimize for...

Nowadays renewable energy sources (RES) are growing at a rapid pace, particularly the wind energy. The high amount of wind power penetration into the power grids poses a major challenge to Transmission System Operators (TSO) in terms of the operational management, as wind power is highly uncertain. The highly uncertain nature of the wind power...

To overcome the disadvantages of radar vectors and to improve efficiency and safety of terminal airspace operations, EUROCONTROL has proposed the so-called Point Merge System (PMS) technique for merging inbound traffic flows. As the PMS provides better predictability, it can potentially offer significant fuel and environmental benefits as well...
