MISTA Conference: Plenary Talk (Raymond Kwan)

Our second plenary talk took place this morning. Raymond Kwan, from The University of Leeds, gave a talk entitled “Case Studies of Successful Train Crew Scheduling.”
The talk was based on his spin out company (TrainTRACS) that markets software to UK train operators across the UK and is used to schedule train crews. As well as giving an overview of the problem, his talk discussed how complex the problem is and the methodologies that they use to solve it.
