AN ALGORITHM FOR CAR ASSIGNMENT

Assignment of cars for various train services on the New Tokaido line is performed by the COMTRAC computer system, a network previously used for control of actual train operations. When the line was extended to Hakata in 1975, COMTRAC functions were expanded to include car assignment and car inspection scheduling. The assignment algorithm must be consistent with efficient use of cars, allowing for accidents, train delays and road failures. The algorithm is explained and results of simulation experiments of car assignment are described.
