Abstract

The optimisation of vehicle utilisation is an important task for an economic operation. To achieve this goal many constraints have to be considered. These constraints arise either from operation, from organisational structure within the transportation companies or are affected from external conditions. This paper describes some of the constraints and shows an approach to modelling these constraints into an automatic vehicle rostering system. Most of these constraints were collected during a conceptual design phase with the \“DB AG, UB P” (German Railways) and afterwards modelled into the vehicle rostering system Dispo. The types of the operational
