Efficient GRASP+VND and GRASP+VNS metaheuristics for the traveling repairman problem
- 1.2k Downloads
The traveling repairman problem is a customer-centric routing problem, in which the total waiting time of the customers is minimized, rather than the total travel time of a vehicle. To date, research on this problem has focused on exact algorithms and approximation methods. This paper presents the first metaheuristic approach for the traveling repairman problem.
