An Improved Train Classification Procedure for the Hump Yard Lausanne Triage

  title={An Improved Train Classification Procedure for the Hump Yard Lausanne Triage},
  author={Peter Marton and Jens Maue and Marc Nunkesser},
In this paper we combine an integer programming approach and a computer simulation tool to successfully develop and verify an improved classification schedule for a real-world train classification instance. First, we derive an integer program for computing train classification schedules based on an earlier developed bitstring representation of such schedules. We show how to incorporate various practical restrictions in this model. Secondly, we apply the model to one day of traffic data of the… CONTINUE READING
