It is well known that many scheduling problems can be modeled as constraint optimization problems. The scheduling of train services can be considered as a problem subject to a number of constraints describing railway infrastructure, required train services and reasonable time-intervals for waiting and transits. Railway optimization problems are known to be hard problems and a good solution or the best solution is a rather difficult task. In this work, we propose a topological constraint… CONTINUE READING
