The resource-constrained elementary shortest path problem arises as a pricing subproblem in branch-and-price algorithms for vehicle routing problems with additional constraints. We address the optimization of the resource-constrained elementary shortest path problem and we present and compare three methods. The first method is a well-known exact dynamic(More)
The vehicle routing problem with simultaneous distribution and collection (VRPSDC) is the variation of the capacitated vehicle routing problem that arises when the distribution of goods from a depot to a set of customers and the collection of waste from the customers to the depot must be performed by the same vehicles of limited capacity and the customers(More)
The ordered open-end bin packing problem is a variant of the bin packing problem in which the items to be packed are sorted in a given order and the capacity of each bin can be exceeded by the last item packed into the bin. We present a branch-and-price algorithm for its exact optimization. The pricing subproblem is a special variant of the binary knapsack(More)
