VEHICLE SCHEDULING AND DRIVER RUN CUTTING. RUCUS PACKAGE OVERVIEW

This report describes the Run Cutting and Scheduling (RUCUS) package, which is a set of computer programs designed to assist in headway sheet development, vehicle scheduling and driver run cutting. The purpose of using computer programs for this task is to cut down on the time involved in designing schedules while improving the accuracy of the finished product. The RUCUS package seeks to avoid the three major pitfalls which have been responsible for a lack of success in previous attempts to design a computer scheduling system. The RUCUS package attempts to cover all phases of the scheduling department's activities, yet still be suitable for stage or partial implementation.
