Real-world scheduling problems are usually complex and involve many approaches to find sub-optimal rather than optimal solutions using reasonable computing resources. The bus maintenance scheduling problem, which is distributed and dynamic in nature, has received less attention compared to scheduling problems in manufacturing. The characteristics of bus maintenance scheduling problems are first identified, then a multi-agent system (MAS) is proposed to heuristically solve the bus maintenance… CONTINUE READING
