Focuses on stochastic types of transportation problems: real time traffic management, supply chain logistics, shipping fleet management
Offers systems and computational algorithms enabling the transportation industry to address random dynamic events
All the chapters in the book have been reviewed by experts in the field
This book focuses on real time management of distribution systems, integrating the latest results in system design, algorithm development and system implementation to capture the state-of-the art research and application trends. Although research in this area of transportation problems has concentrated on executing static plans on optional distribution conditions, this book examines problems when some dynamic or unplanned even occurs within the transport or network system. It will focus specifically on these cases and integrate the latest results in systems, routing algorithms and case studies where information (a dynamic event) is revealed to the decision maker in a real-time manner.
The book investigates and analyzes the emerging field of Dynamic Fleet Management from several perspectives, presenting the systemic background of important topics such as goods dispatching, couriers, rescue and repair services, taxi cab services, and more. Algorithmic approaches are outlined for processing real time information and producing acceptable-quality solutions in modest computing times. The book includes real-life case studies that describe the solution to actual distribution pro
