Scalable Timing-Aware Network Design via Lagrangian Decomposition

This paper addresses instances of the temporal fixed-charge multi-commodity flow (tfMCF) problem that arise in a very large scale dynamic transportation application. We model the tfMCF as a discrete-time Resource Task Network (RTN) with cyclic schedule, and formulate it as a mixed-integer program. These problems are notoriously hard to solve due to their time-expanded nature, … Read more
