Airline reserve fleet capacity is a strategic resource that provides airlines the means to add robustness to their schedules. This paper focuses on leveraging past data on airlines' execution of planned schedules (resulting delays, cancellations and missed connections), along with the disruptions that prohibited the flawless execution of the...

E-mobility, in particular electric vehicles (EVs), play a crucial role in the energy transition. While businesses are increasingly adopting EVs, there is still a lot of opportunity to grow. One aspect of this growth is the way these vehicles are used by companies, especially when it comes to the logistics of EV charging. To encourage companies...

The Global Shipping industry is responsible for transporting 90% of global commerce and is responsible for 3% of global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Addressing this, the International Maritime Organization (IMO) aims to reduce GHG emissions from international shipping by 40% by 2030 and achieve net zero by 2050. This study explores Low...

This Master Thesis investigates the possible improvements to the Target Time Management concept to optimize the arrival flows for SWISS International Airlines. The aim is to improve operational performance based on the current model used, as well as prove that Target Time Management constitutes a valuable system to improve operations in a...

Long truck queues and congestion around terminals is a common sight, however they come with many negative externalities for all the stakeholders involved. Truck Appointment System (TAS) is the most commonly used system to face these problems, but it still has some drawbacks and limitations. Consequently, in this research an extension of the...

As the aviation industry has agreed on the goal of achieving net-zero CO2 emissions by 2050, various mitigation strategies are being deployed and developed. This paper focuses on reducing emissions at airports by towing aircraft instead of taxiing with their main engines; dispatch towing. This is done by developing a model to optimise the...

Computational efficiency is essential for large-scale mathematical optimisation problems, such as the generation expansion planning problem, to be practically applicable. In linear programming solvers, crossover is frequently a bottleneck when solving optimisation problems. This study aims at determining why crossover is a bottleneck in solving...

We study the problem of finding statistically distinct plans for stochastic task assignment problems such as online multi-robot pickup and delivery (MRPD) when facing multiple competing objectives. In many real-world settings robot fleets do not only need to fulfil delivery requests, but also have to consider auxiliary objectives such as...

In this article, we consider the problem of distributed optimisation of a separable convex cost function over a graph, where every edge and node in the graph could carry both linear equality and/or inequality constraints. We show how to modify the primal-dual method of multipliers (PDMM), originally designed for linear equality constraints,...

Background: Energy system models based on linear programming have been growing in size with the increasing need to model renewables with high spatial and temporal detail. Larger models lead to high computational requirements. Furthermore, seemingly small changes in a model can lead to drastic differences in runtime. Here, we investigate...

With the strong backing and advocacy from the EU for railway transport, it is crucial to focus on innovative and efficient technologies to maintain service quality. In daily train operations, traffic uncertainties lead to perturbations, which may result in two types of track conflicts: disturbances and disruptions.<br/><br/>In the current...

In response to the urgent need for sustainable energy solutions and climate change mitigation, international agreements such as the Paris Agreement have been instrumental in advocating reduced greenhouse gas emissions. As the world shifts towards renewable energy sources and electrification, there arises a heightened challenge of increased...

Upper bounds for the kissing number can be written as a semidefinite program (SDP) through the Delsarte-Goethals-Seidel method for spherical codes. This thesis solves the resulting SDP with a cutting plane approach, in which a sequence of linear programs (LPs) is solved with the addition of linear constraints every round. We study the...

The world can’t keep up with its own data and therefore needs new ways to store it. Research is being done into new types of experimental data storage like DNA sampling or racetrack memory, which could completely revolutionize the way storage works. However, such storage media are prone to certain type of errors like deletion errors where...

Every time one counts the number of occurrences of a pair of values for two categorical variables, one obtains a contingency table. These tables are one of the simplest representations of data in order to statistically test for the presence of some association between the two variables under consideration. Although naturally occurring in so many...

The increasing popularity of e-commerce has led to a greater emphasis on improving parcel delivery processes. Among the various stages of the delivery process, packing parcels into delivery vans affects the delivery time. The efficiency of delivery is optimized when each parcel is conveniently accessible upon arrival, thereby minimizing the...

The increase in online retail demand has stimulated automation in order picking systems, leading to new challenges and opportunities in task assignment and scheduling. In partially automated order picking systems, such challenges and opportunities exist regarding human factors implementation in the job-shop scheduling problem, an optimisation...

This study investigates the problem of prioritising trucks at the export area of the KLM Cargo ground handler terminal while maintaining a continuous operation in the unloading area. Due to the uncoordinated nature of truck arrivals and space limitations at the ground handler, substantial waiting times may arise when<br/>trucks arrive...

Condition-based maintenance (CBM) scheduling of an aircraft fleet in a disruptive environment while considering health prognostics for a set of systems is a very complex combinatorial problem, which is becoming more challenging in light of the uncertainty included in health prognostics. This type of problem falls under the broad category of...

Conflict detection and resolution models are being developed to support railway traffic management in taking optimised rescheduling decisions in case of disturbances. Existing models mostly concern fixed-block signalling systems, in which minimum train separation distances are determined based on a preset number of blocks representing worst-case...
