This paper describes an optimization framework for railway rolling stock rostering and maintenance scheduling. A key problem in railway rostering planning requires covering a given set of services and maintenance works with limited rolling stock units. The problem is solved via a two-step approach that combines the scheduling tasks related to train services, short-term maintenance operations and empty runs. A commercial MIP solver is used for the development of a real-time decision support tool. A campaign of experiments on real-world scenarios from Trenitalia (Italian train operating company) illustrates the improvement achievable by the approach when compared to the practical solutions.

Abstract

This paper describes an optimization framework for railway rolling stock rostering and maintenance scheduling. A key problem in railway rostering planning requires covering a given set of services and maintenance works with limited rolling stock units. The problem is solved via a two-step approach that combines the scheduling tasks related to train services, short-term maintenance operations and empty runs. A commercial MIP solver is used for the development of a real-time decision support tool. A campaign of experiments on real-world scenarios from Trenitalia (Italian train operating company) illustrates the improvement achievable by the approach when compared to the practical solutions.
