TransOp – Operational resource planning for passenger transportation with EuroDécision – Joint laboratory with ANR
Planning urban and trans-urban transportation is an important issue for industrial societies of today. Territorial collectivities and transportation operators must consider a number of aspects, including: human and material resource optimization, compliance with environmental and social constraints, and meeting users’ needs.
This shared laboratory, bringing together Eurodécision’s business expertise with the scientific know-how of IMT Atlantique’s TASC team (via ARMINES), will help solve two key problems: scheduling (vehicles – bus, train, tramways, bus – planning on routes) and driver duty planning (assigning staff to those routes). Not only are these problems increasingly complex (regulation, network expansion), they are also increasingly sensitive to vagaries (incidents, accidents, unavailability) in the production phase.
The aim of the joint laboratory (LabCom ANR) is to provide formalism and resolution methods able to recover tactical planning at the operational level to help planners effectively respond to regulation requirements (establishment and operational monitoring of staff schedules).
