OPERATIONS MANAGEMENT FOR URBAN SNOW REMOVAL AND DISPOSAL

Urban snow removal and disposal operations include a number of challenging strategic and tactical problems that are relatively unstudied. Those operations include spreading de-icers and abrasives, plowing snow, loading snow into trucks, and transporting snow to disposal sites. The authors describe urban snow removal and disposal operations in detail, identify relevant management problems, review previous studies, and highlight opportunities for future research. The authors also describe a snow removal and disposal decision support system, currently under development, that addresses several major problems in an integrated fashion.
