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.
