Abstract

The efficient use of infrastructures us a hard requirement for railway companies. Thus, the scheduling of trains should aim toward optimality, which is an NP-hard problem. The paper presents a friendly and flexible computer-based decision support system for railway timetabling. It implements an efficient method, based on meta-heuristic techniques, which provides railway timetables that satisfy a realistic set of constraints and, that optimize a multi-criteria objective function. © Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2006.
