Scheduling of shunting operations in freight rail hub

Rail yards serving as freight hubs typically reside at the intersection of several rail corridors. Many large rail networks operate like a hub and spoke system, where the rail hub receives trains and separates them into several rakes (blocks of wagons). Each rake may have a different destination, but all wagons within a rake have a common destination.Rakes received from various trains, but with a common destination, are later assembled into a single train prior to its departure.

Optimally scheduling management when climate windows are closing

Delays in acting in collapsing ecosystems can be catastrophic. With every passing year, the chances that the ecosystem has progressed past some point of no return increases. Yet the research and development needed to develop a new technology can take a long time. Balance between these two dynamic processes is needed to determine the optimal length and effort for developing new technologies. This project will develop a method for finding the optimal schedule for developing technological readiness, social acceptability, a …
