Dynamic empty car management in railyards

Dynamic empty car management in railyards
Dynamic empty car management in railyards
This paper is concerned with accelerating the flow of empty cars in a major classification railyard in North America. Due to fluctations in inbound traffic, empty cars experience long delays at the yard. Such delays can be prevented by dynamic car reassignments. We describe a procedure using a sliding time window in order to reduce the time that empty cars spend in the yard and present the associated computational results.

Abstract

This paper is concerned with accelerating the flow of empty cars in a major classification railyard in North America. Due to fluctations in inbound traffic, empty cars experience long delays at the yard. Such delays can be prevented by dynamic car reassignments. We describe a procedure using a sliding time window in order to reduce the time that empty cars spend in the yard and present the associated computational results.
