MATHEMATICAL METHODS OF OPTIMIZATION FOR MULTI-OBJECTIVE TRANSPORTATION SYSTEMS

TRANSPORTATION SYSTEMS HAVE MULTI-OBJECTIVE FUNCTIONS AND THERE ARE MULTI-FACTOR DECISION SITUATIONS. A GENERAL MATHEMATICAL OPTIMIZATION MODEL FOR SUCH SYSTEMS IS DEVELOPED WHICH HAS BROAD APPLICATIONS FOR THE PLANNING, SYSTEM DESIGN, AND EVALUATION OF MANY TRANSPORTATION SYSTEMS. THREE TYPES OF SOLUTION TECHNIQUES ARE DISCUSSED. FOR MULTI-OBJECTIVE LINEAR PROGRAMS, A SOLUTION IS OBTAINED WHICH SATISFIES THE DECISION MAKER'S PREFERENCES AND OPTIMIZATION FROM THE DECISION MAKER'S POINT OF VIEW IS CONSIDERED. A GOAL PROGRAMMING SOLUTION TECHNIQUE IS GIVEN WHEN GOALS FOR THE SYSTEM CAN BE DEFINED. IF THIS IS NOT POSSIBLE, AN OVERALL UTILITY FUNCTION IS DEFINED ON THE VARIOUS OBJECTIVE FUNCTIONS, A CONCEPT OF ADDITIVE UTILITIES IS EXPLORED, AND A PARAMETRIC PROGRAMMING SOLUTION IS GIVEN. /AUTHOR/
