  • An Integrated Systems Approach to the Development of Winter Maintenance / Management Systems
    of Winter Maintenance Management Systems Researcher s Principal investigator James Noble University of Missouri Columbia Co principal investigators Charles Nemmers University of Missouri Columbia Wooseung Jang University of Missouri Columbia Cerry M Klein University of Missouri Columbia Project status Completed Start date 06 01 05 End date 11 30 06 Publications Report An Integrated Systems Approach to the Development of Winter Maintenance Management Systems 495 kb pdf November 2006 Sponsor s partner s Sponsor s Midwest Transportation Consortium About the research Abstract Winter road maintenance operations require many complex strategic and operational planning decisions The five primary problems involved in this intricate planning procedure include locating depots designing sectors routing service vehicles scheduling vehicles and configuring the vehicle fleet The complexity involved in each of these decisions has resulted mainly in research that approaches each of the problems separately and sequentially which can lead to isolated and suboptimal solutions After discussing the complexity of the relaxed subproblems that would need to be solved to optimize the intricate winter maintenance operations the research turns to a heuristic approach to more feasibly address the interrelated problems This report subsequently presents a systematic heuristic based optimization approach to integrate the winter road maintenance
