The vision of Sharing Neighbourhoods is digitalization towards a socially inclusive and caring neighbourhood. We will investigate the effects of digital collaborative sharing platforms on the social interactions in neighbourhoods, and the new economic models that these platforms enable in the neighbourhoods.
Currently, maintenance planning in the railroad domain is predominantly performed manually and involves: Crew scheduling (assigning maintenance tasks to crews dependent on skill set) and job shop scheduling (assign time slots for vehicles to depot workstations). These activities should be synchronised and coordinated with vehicles revenue generating activity (where the vehicles are scheduled to transporting goods or passengers). Due to the substantial fixed costs involved, improved planning is expected to generate significant cost savings.
