A study of heuristic approach on station track allocation in mainline railways
Jia, W.Z., Ho, T.K., & Mao, B.H. (2009) A study of heuristic approach on station track allocation in mainline railways. In Wang, Haiying Wang (Ed.) Proceedings of 5th Interntional Conference on Natural Computation (ICNC09), IEEE, Tianjin, China, pp. 575-579.
Station track allocation is the critical component in the overall railway timetabling. Because of its intrinsic complexity and lack of modeling on station track layouts and train movement within station, analytical approach to attain optimal solution is not feasible. This study investigates the possibilities of applying a heuristic approach and identifies possible difficulties in practice. It is the first and important step to resolve one of the burning issues in the mainline railway operation in China.
