Aronsson, Martin and Kreuger, Per (2001) A constraint model for a cyclic time personnel routing and scheduling problem. [SICS Report]
We present a crew scheduling problem with time windows in the context of scheduling train personnel, which encompasses not only assignment of resources to tasks but also the introduction of extra tasks, passive journeys, depending on the problem instance. The representation of the problem is made as a constraint program, which relies heavily on some global constraints, notably a constraint for expressing non-overlap between rectangles on a surface. A search algorithm is described and we also point out some problems and deficiencies of the current model and its computational behaviour.
