On the interaction between railway scheduling and resource flow networks
AbstractIn previous research (Tian & Demeulemeester, 2010), we have shown that in realistic situations railway scheduling improves both the stability and the expected project length over roadrunner scheduling. In this paper, we introduce the concept of resource flow networks in this analysis and determine what the impact is of the resulting combinations on the average project length, the standard deviation of the project length, the timely project completion probability and the stability cost. Extensive computational results will be presented on both small and larger projects and statistic analysis will be conducted by using SAS PROC GLM.
