Divide-and-price: A decomposition algorithm for solving large railway crew scheduling problems
The railway crew scheduling problem consists of generating crew duties to operate trains at minimal cost, while meeting all work regulations and operational requirements. Typically, a railway operation uses tens of thousands of train movements (trips) and requires thousands of crew members to be assigned to these trips. Despite the large size of the problem, crew schedules need to be generated in short time, because large parts of the train schedule are not finalized until few days before operation.
