The active, rapid penetration of computers into all the spheres of strategic planning and operations management has led to the intensive development of a number of scientific and engineering directions in the applied theory of control. Mathematical modeling and a part of operations research that is based on the theory and methods of optimization should be considered as the most important ones. Mathematical models for the description of various objects, along with the accumulated experience in using mathematical methods that enable one to solve problems formulated on the basis of the models, have grounded the tools for analysis and decision making in economic and technical systems. The tools include, in particular, mathematical models and methods for strategic planning and operations management implemented in various decision-making systems, which are widely used in almost all branches of the advanced economy, transportation being one of those. However, the degree of employing the tools in transportation still remains much lower than that in the other branches.
