Survey of railway maintenance activities from a planning perspective and literature review concerning the use of mathematical algorithms for solving such planning and scheduling problems
2014 (English)Report (Other academic)
This report is written as part of the research project “Efficient planning of railway infrastructure maintenance”, funded by the Swedish Transport Administration (Trafikverket) and conducted within the national research program “Capacity in the Railway Traffic System” (www.kajt.org). The aim is to:
- Describe and categorize the maintenance oriented activities that take place on railway infrastructure from a planning and scheduling perspective
- Make a catalogue of interesting planning and scheduling problems as iden- tified during our survey
- Describe and categorize previous work, in the research literature, con- cerning the use of mathematical algorithms for solving such planning and scheduling problems
The overall goal of the research project is to develop models and solution meth- ods that can be used to plan and schedule maintenance activities coordinated with the train traffic in such a way that substantial benefits regarding capacity, safety and efficiency is achieved.
