Utilities face the challenge of responding to power outages due to storms and ice damage, but most power grids are not equipped with sensors to pinpoint the precise location of fault causing the outage. Instead, utilities have to depend primarily on phone calls (trouble calls) from customers who have lost power. This paper presents an information model of(More)
Utilities face the challenge of responding to power outages due to storms and ice damage, but most power grids are not equipped with sensors to pinpoint the precise location of the faults causing the outage. Instead, utilities have to depend primarily on phone calls (trouble calls) from customers who have lost power to guide the dispatching of utility(More)
There are a number of sources of randomness that arise in military airlift operations. However, the cost of uncertainty can be difficult to estimate, and is easy to overestimate if we use simplistic decision rules. Using data from Canadian military airlift operations, we study the effect of uncertainty in customer demands as well as aircraft failures, on(More)
For decades locomotive planning has been approached using the classical tools of mathematical programming, resulting in very large‐scale integer programming models which are simultaneously beyond the capabilities of modern solvers, while still requiring a host of simplifying assumptions that limit the use of the models for the analysis of important planning(More)
