SINTEF Technology and Society Smart, Green and Integrated Transport
RESEARCH, TECHNOLOGY AND INNOVATION
Our research is based on the multidisciplinary approach and teamwork. Transportation will be safe, effective, accessible to all and involve a low resource consumption.
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.
