Contributor(s): Zeimpekis, Vasileios [Editor] | Tarantilis, Christos D [Editor] | Giaglis, George M [Editor] | Minis, Ioannis [Editor].
Material type: materialTypeLabelBookSeries: Operations research/computer science interfaces series; no. 38. Publisher: New York Springer Science + Business Media 2007Description: xi, 241 p.ISBN: 9780387717210.Subject(s): Motor vehicle fleets - Management | Supply chain - Operation research | Logistic EnvironmentDDC classification: 658.7882 Summary: 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 problems by combining systemic and algorithmic approaches.
