Operations Research Games: a Survey

This paper surveys the research area of cooperative games associated with several types of operations research problems in which various decision makers (players) are involved. Cooperating players not only face a joint optimisation problem in trying, e.g., to minimise total joint costs, but also face an additional allocation problem in how to distribute these joint costs back to the individual players. This interplay between optimisation and allocation is the main subject of the area of operations research games. It is surveyed on the basis of a distinction between the nature of the underlying optimisation problem: connection, routing, scheduling, production and inventory. read more read less

Routing problems with loading constraints
06 Jul 2010 - Top

Abstract:

We consider difficult combinatorial optimization problems arising in transportation logistics when one is interested in optimizing both the routing of vehicles and the loading of goods into them. The separate problems (routing and loading) are already \(\mathcal{NP}\)-hard, and very difficult to solve in practice. A fortiori ... We consider difficult combinatorial optimization problems arising in transportation logistics when one is interested in optimizing both the routing of vehicles and the loading of goods into them. The separate problems (routing and loading) are already \(\mathcal{NP}\)-hard, and very difficult to solve in practice. A fortiori their combination is extremely challenging and stimulating. Although the specific literature is still quite limited, a first attempt to a systematic view of this field can be useful both to academic researchers and to practitioners. We review vehicle routing problems with two- and three-dimensional loading constraints. Other combinations of routing and special loading constraints arising from industrial applications are also considered. read more read less

In this paper we present a review of approximative solution methods, that is, heuristics and metaheuristics designed for the solution of multiobjective combinatorial optimization problems (MOCO). First, we discuss questions related to approximation in this context, such as performance ratios, bounds, and quality measures. We give some examples of heuristics proposed for the solution of MOCO problems. The main part of the paper covers metaheuristics and more precisely non-evolutionary methods. The pioneering methods and their derivatives are described in a unified way. We provide an algorithmic presentation of each of the methods together with examples of applications, extensions, and a bibliographic note. Finally, we outline trends in this area. read more read less

Frequently asked questions

Absolutely not! With our tool, you can freely write without having to focus on LaTeX. You can write your entire paper as per the TOP guidelines and autoformat it.

Yes. The template is fully compliant as per the guidelines of this journal. Our experts at SciSpace ensure that. Also, if there's any update in the journal format guidelines, we take care of it and include that in our algorithm.

Sure. We support all the top citation styles like APA style, MLA style, Vancouver style, Harvard style, Chicago style, etc. For example, in case of this journal, when you write your paper and hit autoformat, it will automatically update your article as per the TOP citation style.

You can avail our Free Trial for 7 days. I'm sure you'll find our features very helpful. Plus, it's quite inexpensive.

Yup. You can choose the right template, copy-paste the contents from the word doc and click on auto-format. You'll have a publish-ready paper that you can download at the end.

A matter of seconds. Besides that, our intuitive editor saves a load of your time in writing and formating your manuscript.

One little Google search can get you the Word template for any journal. However, why do you need a Word template when you can write your entire manuscript on SciSpace, autoformat it as per TOP's guidelines and download the same in Word, PDF and LaTeX formats? Try us out!.

Absolutely! You can do it using our intuitive editor. It's very easy. If you need help, you can always contact our support team.

SciSpace is an online tool for now. We'll soon release a desktop version. You can also request (or upvote) any feature that you think might be helpful for you and the research community in the feature request section once you sign-up with us.

Sure. You can request any template and we'll have it up and running within a matter of 3 working days. You can find the request box in the Journal Gallery on the right sidebar under the heading, "Couldn't find the format you were looking for?".

After you have written and autoformatted your paper, you can download it in multiple formats, viz., PDF, Docx and LaTeX.

To be honest, the answer is NO. The impact factor is one of the many elements that determine the quality of a journal. Few of those factors the review board, rejection rates, frequency of inclusion in indexes, Eigenfactor, etc. You must assess all the factors and then take the final call.

I spent hours with MS word for reformatting. It was frustrating - plain and simple. With SciSpace, I can draft my manuscripts and once it is finished I can just submit. In case, I have to submit to another journal it is really just a button click instead of an afternoon of reformatting.
