Crew management tools

This page contains information about the suburban services' crew planning tool. The crew allotment is done to minimize a combination of the number of crew members delegated to a section and the overtime assigned for a timetable. The allotment is made by following the detailed description of constraints specified by the WR suburban section team and the Hours-of-Employment-Rules (HOER) constraints.

A presentation about the working regarding the tool is available here

The paper from the proceedings of the conference can be downloaded from here

Contributors to the tool and the procedure: Sudarshan Pulapadi, Naman Kasliwal
