CONSTRUCTING AN OPTIMAL FLEET FOR A TRANSPORTATION SCHEDULE

A general method for constructing all optimal fleets is described. A special case of periodic schedules is studied and it is proved that a periodic schedule can be decomposed into an optimal periodic fleet. Applications of the deficit function technique to practical scheduling when passengers have tolerances for departure times are discussed.
