DETERMINATION OF THE HIGHEST-DENSITY RUNNING SCHEDULE ON AN ARBITRARY LINE TIME-SHARING PROGRAM
To be able to determine the theoretical validity of a given line equipment it is essential to be able to measure this validity in terms of operation i.e. in terms of running schedule flexibility. In this connection, the maximum number of trains which it is possible to run can be considered as a sufficiently valid and selective criterion for being applied a priori to a more complete and finer study. The simplicity of application, through the combined technique of Branch and Bound, makes it an ideal tool for determining the most advantageous running schedules on an arbitrary line.
