"The Cane Railway Scheduling Problem (CRSP) is to design a set of locomotive runs that supply the sugar factory with cane to crush, and the harvesting contractors with empty bins to fill with cane. Cane transport is the link between the harvesting and processing sectors of the sugar industry and its impact on both sectors must be considered. CRSP is significant problem for the sugar industry ... This research develops a real-time dynamic scheduling system (RTSS) that removes many of the assumptions and handles uncertainty, and produces schedules that are suitable for everyday, operational use"--Abstract.
