The Dutch Railways (NS) is the Dutch national passenger railway operator. They own rolling stock that has to be maintained regularly. One of the maintenance facilities executing regular maintenance on regional trains is the maintenance department (OB) in Leidschendam. The aim of this project is to develop a framework for optimizing the...

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...

For performing technical maintenance, it is important to keep a detailed schedule of resources and temporal constraints. The Resource Constrained Project Scheduling Problem (RCPSP) is a well de- fined scheduling model with both resources and temporal constraints. Precedence Constraint Posting (PCP) is a technique to solve the NP-hard RCPSP...

The research presented in this thesis is part of the Rolling Stock Life Cycle Logistics applied research and development program, conducted by NedTrain. As a company, NedTrain belongs to Nederlandse Spoorwegen (NS; the principal railway company in the Netherlands) and provides maintenance services for the NS train-fleet. The aim of this program...

Robustness is essential for schedules if they are being executed under uncertain conditions. In this thesis we research robustness in Partial Order Schedules, which represent sets of solutions for instances of the Resource-Constrained Project Scheduling Problem. They can be generated using a greedy procedure called Chaining, which can be easily...

In this work we improve on existing scheduling techniques suitable for scheduling problems at the train maintenance provider, NedTrain. Scheduling problems that require flexible solutions can be modeled using variations of the Resource Constraint Project Scheduling Problem (RCPSP), which can be solved using Precedence Constraint Posting (PCP)....

De Nijs, F. (author)
Many meta-heuristic approaches have been suggested for or applied to the Resource Constrained Project Scheduling Problem (RCPSP). The existence of a number of highly accessible standard benchmark sets has promoted a research focus on finding anything that improves average solution quality, without investigating what effect is responsible for the...

We study the application of stochastic scheduling methods for dealing with the negative impact of uncertainty on the timely delivery of NedTrain maintenance projects. A stochastic scheduling problem includes a quantification of uncertainty by representing the duration of a maintenance activity with a probability distribution. The solution is no...
