In this paper we provide efficient robust algorithms for shunting problems concerning the reordering of train cars over a hump. In particular, we study algorithms able to cope with small disruptions, as temporary and local availability and/or malfunctioning of key resources that can occur and affect planned operations. To this aim, a definition of robust algorithm is provided. Performances of the proposed algorithms are measured by the notion of price of robustness. Various scenarios are considered, and interesting results are presented.

Abstract

In this paper we provide efficient robust algorithms for shunting problems concerning the reordering of train cars over a hump. In particular, we study algorithms able to cope with small disruptions, as temporary and local availability and/or malfunctioning of key resources that can occur and affect planned operations. To this aim, a definition of robust algorithm is provided. Performances of the proposed algorithms are measured by the notion of price of robustness. Various scenarios are considered, and interesting results are presented.
