Solving the Theater Distribution Vehicle Routing and Scheduling Problem Using Group Theoretic Tabu Search
This paper describes both the conceptual context, based in a flexible group theoretic tabu search (GTTS) framework, and the software implementation of a robust, efficient, and effective prescriptive generalized theater distribution methodology. This methodology evaluates and prescribes the routing and scheduling of multimodal theater transportation assets at the individual asset operational level to provide economically efficient time-definite delivery of cargo to customers.
