CREW ASSIGNMENT MODEL
This model simulates crew assignment policies between 2 terminals. It measures the cost effectiveness of different assignment policies by costing lost trips, deadheads and detentions. The user premises crew starting times, crew set sizes, assignment periods, length of rest periods and other aspects of assignment policies. Train origination and runtimes are determined by Monte Carlo sampling. This model has been used in an interseniority district where number of miles is allocated disportionately between two local union groups.
