Workload Balancing in Transportation Crew Rostering
In crew rostering, balanced workload allocation is a critical issue and an important planning phenomenon that affects both the quality of crew schedules and personnel satisfaction. We focus on workload balancing in transportation systems where deadheading of crew is possible. A network flow formulation of the problem is developed, and an optimal solution method is proposed. We compare the computational performance of the optimal solution method with the solution of the problem with a commercial solver only. We present the results of our computational experiments with well-known problem instances from the crew scheduling literature.
